Is This You and Your Job Search Effort?
1. You are utilizing a resume as your #1 marketing tool
2. You are not utilizing social media
4. You are email spamming your network with requests
5. You only respond to job listings or word of mouth aka “response mode”
6. You attend networking events without doing research to understand the organization, who may attend, or what the expected etiquette demands from each event

8. You do not give value first
9. You are not delivering your value first before your resume
10. You are not learning and adding new skills to your current skill set
