I was on the radio with MarketWatch's Adrienne Mitchell last week and one of the things we talked about was job searching the old fashioned way.
On a related note, we talked about how it's important to remember that people help people get jobs and the importance of not counting on finding a job online. In addition to applying for jobs online and connecting on LinkedIn (and Facebook if you're using it for professional as well as personal networking) spend time job searching the old fashioned way - in person.
Given the job market, which isn't improving significantly, it's important to cover all the bases with a multi-faceted job search. Doing so will give you the best shot at finding a new job sooner rather than later.
