That said, there are steps you can take to get a job that make the process much easier.  Here's how to get a job including where to look for jobs, the best job sites, how to use your connections, how to ace the interview, and how to follow up after an interview.

Besides doing all the right things, it's important, as well, to see what worked for job seekers who have found jobs.  Read How to Get a Job Stories, and if you have a few minutes, we'd be thrilled if you'd share how you got your last job with us.

This is genius, a wealth of information for a 17 year old like me who plans to know everything about the resume/interview process without having to take years to learn this process and even then you may not learn some tips that are presented here. Thanks so much!
