Check out these 5 expert job search techniques CARLSBAD, CA -- Get creative: Your resume should be constantly evolving and changing to make sure that it's up to date, memorable, and hard to ignore. Get out of your comfort zone: The fact is, most people aren't willing to get out of their comfort zone, and those that do are able to open up new paths and doors that weren't there before. Get off the beaten path, and think of different approaches to old problems. That means getting a little dirty, sometimes.

Become a Networking Warrior: It's not what you know, it's who you know. Don't be shy about networking and start getting out there. Give your LinkedIn profile some serious work, or transform yourself into a permanent fixture at networking events. The fact is, employers hire based off of employee recommendations. You need to be one of those recommendations.

Know your value: Do some research and figure out what skills you have, and what they're potentially worth to a company in your industry. Always go into a negotiation with realistic expectations. Do your homework: Dig into the details of the company that you're applying to, the industry it's in, and the individuals you'll be meeting if granted an interview. When preparing for the interview, have a plan to demonstrate how and why you're the perfect fit, and discuss your skill set as it relates to what the company is looking for.
