Twitter is a great resource during your job search.
When you're applying for a new job, you often have to write a cover letter to accompany your resume and serve as an introduction to who you are. These letters must be brief yet compelling so you don't require much of the reader but still appear unique. This can be pretty tough, but if you utilize the principles of good storytelling and concise writing you can put together a letter that won't get lost in the pile.

Up until several months ago, I could count on two hands the number of interviews I've had in my life. Every few years, there'd be something: college visits, a new job but, thankfully, I usually passed the proverbial test the first round to avoid additional probing. That all changed when I recently left my job of seven years.

Whether or not you are an avid Olympics fan, there are some valuable lessons from the Summer 2012 Games in London that are applicable in the quest for a gratifying career. From the pageantry of the opening ceremony that unites the world country by country with the parade of athletes, it's clear that all Olympians have worked incredibly hard to achieve a coveted spot on their respective national teams. The extreme level of focus, commitment, determination, and relentless work ethic is something others can relate to in their non-Olympic careers.

I have a big soft spot in my heart for people who are "between jobs."
We have been covering resources for job hunters for quite sometime now. Since the launch of our blog in January 2009, we have come a long way, thanks to you. With unemployment rate still high it has become a challenge to find a job, however, with due effort and determination your dream job isn’t that far. We have compiled a list of sixty resources which includes resume articles, job interview articles, job search sites, career and job related blogs, LinkIn Groups and twitter accounts you should follow (10 each) . We are continually trying to provide resources for our readers and job seekers, if you would like us to cover a specific topic please feel free to let us know through your comments. One more thing, before we get started we want to remind you that unless you put these resources and tips mentioned in these articles into action, the goal can never be achieved.
Plus 5 that lead to success Kaitlin Madden, CareerBuilder Writer
If you ever want to lie awake at night, go ahead and think about your "one thing" -- the one thing you were born to do, the one career you were built to succeed at and the one person you were destined to spend the rest of your life with. Attempting to solve these impossible optimization riddles is a sure path to emotional turmoil, an unsatisfying professional life and, well, a pretty bleary-eyed morning.
One of my favorite cartoons shows a politician giving a speech at one of those thousand-dollar-a-plate dinners. He's saying, "...And during my administration, we've created 200,000 new jobs!". Applause sweeps through the room as a bus-boy is shown in the background picking up dishes, think ing, "And I've got THREE of them." Well, personally, I haven't held a steady job in 30 years, but I can tell you that it was one of the most soul-scarring experiences of my life: not only was I expected to show up at the same time and place every morning, but I had to stay there and pretend to be doing something for eight long hours every day, with no consideration whatever for what I REALLY wanted to be doing. Okay, I'm (sort of) joking, but if you still find yourself working for The Man, then it's no joke to you, and if you're trying to make a go of homesteading AND holding down a steady job (or three) it may be down-right depressing.
