Alas, landing a job is more of a pain than ever. Sure, it's easier today to find on-target ads with sites like indeed.com, simplyhired.com, etc.
That very ease, however, means that good job openings attract hordes of applicants. But even I couldn't believe it when I heard that when the Tacoma Water District advertised a $17.76-per-hour meter reader job, 1,600 people applied.
Tough times require tough job-search strategies. I provide a collection of them HERE.
