A note to job seekers from nationally syndicated careers columnist and author or Job Search Letters For Dummies, Joyce Lain Kennedy:

Welcome aboard, job seekers! Thanks for checking out this first guide to communications-supported job search and career growth in relentlessly changing technological times.

The right messaging what you say, why you say it, and when you say it is as important today to your employment goals as it has been at any time since Leonardo da Vinci wrote the first professional resume in 1482.

Consider recent job finding history: * In 1986 fax machines and postal mail were the most popular ways to send resumes and cover letters. * In the 1990s the Internet boom kicked in with new tools to connect jobs and people: e-mail, websites, cell phones, mailing lists, and online bulletin boards. * In the 21st century the double-time march of recruiting technology skyrocketed, building a techno-swamp populated with endless ideas of how to connect work and people through smartphones, wonder tablets, apps, and social media for virtual networking.

You re competing in a new world of work out there. If your job search is treading water or even drowning there s a better way. Make a splash! Engage hiring authorities through a communications-centered campaign with smart content.
