Be Aggressive About Your Job Search: Pick Your Position

This just in from the Resume-Republic Times: Be aggressive in your job search. Pick your position, don't let it pick you!

I'm going to play psychologist or voice of reason or close (painful but honest advice) friend or Donald Trump presently: If you really, really want to nab that job - aggressively, proactively, assertively, energetically go after it - and pick your industry, pick your position, pick your location, pick your product, even pick your company.

The most important rule in your job search is this (imagine Don Corleone himself is reading this to you as business advice): You are in charge. This isn't cocky or unrealistic - it's a fact. And too many people - people who are eager and even desperate to get a job - don't realize this. They don't take the bull by the horns and take charge of their job search!

Next week, I will get into more details.
