If you take some time to organize your job search, the entire process will be easier. One way to effectively organize your job search is to take advantage of the free tools, like JibberJobber or Becomed, that are available to help manage and organize your job search. You'll save a lot of time, because you'll be managing your job search in one place, rather than flipping back and forth between email and a bunch of different web sites.
To take it a step further, the same tools you use to organize and manage your job search can be used even when you're employed. Taking charge or, and managing, your career will put you a step ahead next time you're in the job market.
