Persistence is certainly the key, but beyond that, finding a job via the Internet is TOUGH. Depending upon your focus in your job search (not sure what field you are looking to get into), networking is essential. Talk to family and friends to see who they know… and then talk to those people and if they do not have a direct connection, get more names from them.
The best jobs I have ever had in my career have always had some kind of networking component involved in my getting the job. The best jobs out there are not necessarily posted.[/quote]
Yea, I heard that something like 90% of the job openings out there aren’t posted, and most people get there jobs by knowing someone working at the company.
I’m trying to get into anything in a systems installation (comms equip.) that goes along with my CTM (Cryptologic Tech, simmilar to an Electronics Tech) experience in the Navy.
I was also a Govt. contractor for BAE Systems in Virginia and got some good experience there.
I have a head hunter working with me looking to fill a possition in SC, where they are looking specifically for CTMs out of the Navy. The company has my resume and he hasn’t heard back from them yet (only 3 days), but I don’t like waiting too long.
