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.
