Have you got the right tools for changing careers?

Although the chief editor of HR Case Studies is not generally too keen on woolly advice and guidance on job seeking techniques, a very brief article in the current edition of People Management Magazine contains these very down-to-earth and eminently sensible tips for the job seeker of 2009:
  • Make all your contacts face-to-face ones as far as possible - get remembered.
  • Seek out organisations and people who are bucking the trend.
  • Believe that someone you meet soon will make the biggest difference, and work backwards from that.
  • Ensure that your CV says everything you would if you were in the room.
  • Plan for rejection - hiring decisions are often arbitrary and are not valid feedback.
  • Job seekers and career changers: do you find these tips useful?
