It was January of 1969, and The Beatles were a mess. The recording of an album tentatively titled ‘Get Back' was meant to be a ‘back to the basics' return to their roots, but personal problems between the Beatles escalated and culminated in George Harrison's walking out on the band.
Good Monday morning,
Last week I told you about the importance of getting your resume professionally written.
And this week I want to talk to you about Job Search 102.
Because over the years, we've discovered that a lot of the canned advice out there doesn't apply to higher-end professionals. The job search 101 stuff is focused on recent grads, or people looking to get out of corporate America entirely, or stuff that just doesn't apply.
So we've commissioned writers, hired experts, and crafted our own pieces that match up with what professionals like you need. It's expensive to do, but it's important in preparing you for your search.
You can read all of our advice online, free, at TheLadders Career Advice, but I've pulled out 49 of the best pieces below, ranked in order of interest to readers on our site:
