Is your job search falling flat? Maybe it’s time to try an unconventional approach.
In a Reach Personal Branding teleseminar I attended yesterday, Guerrilla Job Search Gurus Kevin Donlin and David Perry of Guerrilla Job Hunting, laid out a number of innovative tactics that have helped them get people into jobs fast.
Because most job seekers use traditional strategies, when you step outside the norm, you may be able to position yourself above your competition.
Along with such strategies as resume lingerie and zigging when everyone else is zagging, they’ve innovated the “Coffee Cup Caper” and the “Trojan Thank You Letter”.
Read about all 11 strategies in my post, Resume Lingerie and 10 Other Guerrilla Job Search Strategies over at my Executive Career Brand blog.

Meg, I was there too! I had to leave the call early, but LOVED all the info they provided.
I was floored over some of their resume advice, adding company logos, graphics, quotes…hey, but if it is working.
Thanks for writing more about the topics!
