- Resumes – Steve discovers resumes are even more important than he thought (which is saying something), and discusses their value.
- Job Search Boards – Job Search boards do pay off – if you use them right, under the right circumstances.
- Networking – It’s not just networking, it’s the Networking attitude that makes a difference.
- A Blitz Works - Slow and steady may win the race, but an all out rush may win you the job search.
- Be Your (Best) Self – It’s important to be yourself, while showing your good side.
- Empathy – Empathy is the key to connecting in your job search.
- It’s A Campaign – It’s a comprehensive campaign to win the job – learn how to wage it.
