How to Find a Job in Today's Job Market? 2017 Edition

In today’s post, I’d like to lay out a framework for the job search process. Specifically, I’d like to list out 15 steps that if you start following, I believe you should start seeing success right away.

A few questions to get started:

1.     Have you ever felt that you have been stuck in a job rut in your life, doing the same things again and again and not knowing where your career is going?

2.     Have you ever tried to make a change, tried applying to several jobs online, possibly tried to reach out to people on LinkedIn only to never hear back?

3.     Have you wondered why there are some folks who are able to take their careers all the way to the “next level” becoming executives and getting promotion after promotion regularly and then there are some others who are pretty much stuck in a job rut, only going to work for the sake of a paycheck?

If you fall into one of these categories then this post if for you. So, with that background out of the way, let’s get directly into the post.
