If you are looking for a job and want to get hired fast, make sure you aren't making these three mistakes:
Using one resume for every job. You should have a tailored resume for each position you are applying for. (You can learn more in our Getting Hired Resource Center.
Applying to fake jobs. Unfortunately, there are a lot of job scams out there, make sure you know the signs of a phony job listing!
Not preparing for the interview. Ask a family member or friend to conduct a mock interview with you and review some top interview questions!

Hi community, I noticed quite a few questions around the area of “is this a good job or good opportunity?”. If you have potential jobs to look at, first off congrats! I want to provide a job filter system to empower you in choosing what's right for "you".
Truth is no matter what the community says about the pros and cons of a company or role, 2 factors determine if it will work out for you. In brief I’ll share both then I’ll add details for those who want a longer read.
In short - 1. Fit a job into your life goals don’t shrink your life dreams for a job. 2. Persevere and recommit often to that decision and path as long as you are still reaching your goals.
— To being The hero of your story
Long version below.
When we have life filters it's easy to determine if a job is good for our life. 2. Dan Gilbert's Harvard studies on the keys to happiness found aligning with a decision after its made is a huge factor in staying happy with a choice. When others make a decision for us, and later we face adversity on that path, it's easy to say “I didn’t really want to do this” and blame others for the choice and want to quit. Make a firm job decision you have to live through it!
As a senior I would like some advise as to how I can improve my #jobsearch and interview questions without the old age discrimination it happens more frequently than anyone can imagine how can I improve my faith in the work force? I haven't worked for A long time Yet I emphasize my skills?
