I Don't Know What I Want... Chapter 12, Part 6

I Don't Know What I Want, But I Know It's Not This 

By Julie Jansen 

 Chapter 12: Job Search -- the Nuts and Bolts

Job Search Myths
Yeah, it's been a while, But there's not that much of the book left; let's see how quickly we can hammer it out.

Jansen outlines seven myths about job hunting:
  1. A resume should only be one page.
  2. If you got an interview through a third party, you follow up with the person who interviewed you, but rather with your recruiter.
  3. No matter how many people interviewed you, you only need to send a thank-you note to the person who would be your direct report.
  4. You shouldn't take notes during an interview.
  5. Don't bother job hunting in the summer or around the holidays; no one is hiring.
  6. The most qualified candidate has the best shot at the job.
  7. Only certain components of a job offer are negotiable.
She debunks these using common sense, so just consider them debunked.
