How candidates were taught to use job boards:
- Write a generic resume & post it on a couple of job boards
- Apply to a number of jobs using your generic resume, including jobs that have requirements that you don't currently have but could learn ("stretch" jobs)
- If you want more results, increase the number of resumes you send. The law of averages will provide more opportunities to a scattershot approach
Today's successful job search campaigns recognize the lack of low hanging fruit. Instead, today's successful job search campaigns use laser-targeted focus, information, and personalized marketing strategies (resumes, social networking, blogs, portfolios, face-to-face networking) to gain notice over hundreds of other competitive candidates. Today's successful job search campaigns use these tactics to get ahead of advertised job market by exploring the hidden job market - represented in unsolved employer problems and jobs that are in the pre-approval stage.
Today's market demands more research than just which job board to use of the 50 thousand job boards in existence (http://recareered.blogspot.com/2010/02/top-30-job-boards-for-2010.html).
