I search every week and have had a smattering of interviews. It feels like job boards are like black holes but some of my interviews have come from jobs I've found on a job board. Explore every avenue you can when job searching - networking at job clubs, business networking, volunteering, friends, family, connect with recruiters. It's time consuming and you have to have a lot of patience. The networking I started last year is starting to payoff this year.
I use go2worksource, Monster, Simply Hired, Indeed and I have gotten a lot of attention with LinkedIn. Several recruiters have connected with me due to my resume. Right now I'm working on branding myself through social media like LinkedIn and my Blog. I don't know that I have any tips but remember to send a thank you note to your interviewer and try to get feedback when they select another candidate.
Networking and tips on writing resumes, job leads, volunteer opportunities.
