3 ways to spring clean your job search NEW YORK, NY -- 1: Unclutter your resume - If you haven't reviewed your resume in a while, now is the time to give it a good polish. Rearrange the information to showcase your most relevant experience and qualifications. If you find yourself hoarding extraneous information, it's time to trim the fat. Edit your resume so it's no more than two pages and clear off any experience beyond the past ten-to-fifteen years.

2: Replenish your network - Use springtime as an excuse to dust off your address book and take stock of your network. Repair friendships with those you've lost touch with, and weed out those who aren't supportive of your goals. Plant the seeds for new connections by joining relevant professional associations or other industry-specific groups. Meeting new people in your industry will only increase your chances of landing the right job, sooner. Remember that not every networking opportunity will be a face-to-face affair. Break out your smartphone to keep networking while on the go.

3: Clean up your online presence - Out with the old, in with the new! It's time to give your online presence a face-lift. Set up Google Alerts for your name to actively monitor your brand, and clean out or update any outdated profiles. Increase the security settings on any personal accounts you don't want to associate with your professional brand. This will ensure that employers find the same professional online that they met face-to-face or read in your application.
