Tips on landing a new job when switching careers ATLANTA, GA -- Set up a LinkedIn profile: There are tons of recruiters looking for you on LinkedIn. Be mindful about adding them as connections if you're trying to be discreet about your job search. Be discreet when looking for a job: The Wall Street Journal ran a piece about the power of the passive candidate -- a person who has a job and is not necessarily looking for a new one. But the thing is, employers love poaching others who are already employed.

Don't overlook the power of face-to-face networking: Identify key people in the industry to which you want to move and try to set a face-to-face meeting with them. Interview them for their career advice and see about possibilities of doing internships or job shadowing. The beauty of networking is that most jobs are filled by hiring managers who are likely to interview someone they know or know of through a friend of a friend or a colleague of a colleague. People think that networking is passe. No way! It will get you in the door.

Find cheap ways to invest in re-education: Job seekers who are looking to transition into a new field must take stock of their current skills to determine their future career path. Add additional training on your resume by taking courses from a community college or online certification program.
