I live in the Ft. Lauderdale area. Over the past few months, I've had friends and relatives -- all of which are looking for work -- come to me with questions pertaining to resumes, interviewing, and the like. I had to reiterate the same suggestions over and over again to different people. It got to the point where I felt inspired to write an article on the topic -- one that I could simply send to everyone en masse: Tips on How to Find a Job That Suits Your Skills and Interests The article did help them a great deal, but here's what I don't understand: Why is it that so many people are clueless out there when it comes to polishing resumes, shining in interviews, etc.? Granted, I've had ample interview/job hunting experience, but it seems people just don't take the time to research the topic. People have to get with the program and realize that, in this economy, a good job will not simply fall on one's lap. Have you guys encountered the same?
