4 Horrible job search tips to ignore TRENTON, NJ -- Horrible Tip One: Use a traditional, sounds-like-everyone-else resume full of buzzwords. Why would anybody advise you to sound like every other job-seeker? Put a human voice in your resume, use the word "I" and tell your story in the Summary at the top! You aren't like anyone else, so don't pretend or try to be.

Horrible Tip Two: When applying for a job you're interested in, only follow the rules set out in the job ad. If you pitch your resume into a Black Hole recruiting portal, you might wait forever for a response. It's best to try to reach the hiring manager directly and address your cover letter to that specific person. Horrible Tip Three: Use your interview air time to explain why you really, really, really want the job. Do you go on a date to beg a person to go out with you? No! A first date is a recon mission. A job interview is a recon mission, too. Use your interview air time to learn more about what isn't working behind the scenes at your possible next job.

Horrible Tip Four: In your cover letter and on a job interview, talk about what other people say about you. Who cares what some unknown person thinks about you? The relevant question is 'What do YOU think about you?' Tell stories about real situations where you saved the day at work or anywhere.
