The Myth of the Passive Job Seeker

 For today’s candidates, the job search process is constantly “on,” with 74 percent of workers either actively searching for a new job or open to a new opportunity.

Deciding on a new job is the most important decision taken in life. A job-seeker uses 15 different resources, on average, before they apply to a position. Every day, faster and more inexpensive smartphones are empowering job-seekers to look while currently employed. Here are a few resources to get you started with getting your next job:
