Be More Confident. Expert Interview Guides & Advice. Get Started Today!
Even though it's a slow time for hiring you can boost your job search during this holiday season and start to think about notching up your job search in very early January. Now is a good time to position yourself to get the New Year off to a quick start when it comes to your job hunt.
With that fast track job searching in mind, I asked the leading career experts and executives from the top job sites to share their best job search tips. Their advice will help you focus your job search, get directly to contacts at companies, learn how to follow up and get results, and utilize the top job search strategies that will ensure your job hunt succeeds.
If there's anything on the list that you're not incorporating in your job search, consider trying it - even (almost) stalking the company. Sometimes it takes an effort to differentiate yourself from the masses, but it can work.

Fly Fishing Shows RecapLink
Happy New Year to all my fishing addicts out there and I hope you enjoyed the Holidays either dreaming of fly fishing, or better yet, entertaining oneself hopefully out on the water.
It's that time of year again when the weather turns cold, snow is falling and thoughts of a much needed escape soon takes over. Most are back to work this week and I can only imagine how much work is getting done, or lack of that is and computer screens are suddenly filled with Fly fishing videos as well as upcoming Fly Fishing shows to attend.
January kicks off Colorado's season for Fly Fishing shows and it couldn't have come any sooner! Just the thought of spending my weekends stuck inside working, outside shoveling snow or down in my man cave fly fishing room cleaning up has me excited to attend anything fly fishing related.
One problem that keeps showing its ugly head, and yes it's an ugly one is The Fact that we have to shows the exact same weekend to attend. Most fisherman and addicts would only be too happy to have this late Christmas present arrive, myself not so fast!
When is it ever a good thing to have two fly fishing shows compete with one another especially the Powerhouse of the ISE to make their 2nd annual show the same time as the Industry's favorite "The Fly Fishing Show?" Now this I'm sure will be a topic worth discussing for quite some time and I'm all for it but when I'm friend's with the guy who has been putting together the Denver Fly Fishing Show (also the MA/NJ/PA/NC and California shows) I have noticed a bailout of sorts with companies, speakers and attendees. Last year it was not a good site to see the show not as crowded as years before and also the vendors who normally attend with great regards found themselves making a difficult decision to go with the ISE. I do not fault the vendors or companies at all, you have to go where the business is so it's just the organizers of the ISE I have a problem with. I fault the ISE for once again trying to shove out the Fly Fishing Show for their own personal gains and to dominate an open Industry that needs all that it can get to survive.
If you want to attend the ISE International Sportsman Show that's cool and I will be there as well (one of my 3 days split between the 2 shows) and I'm looking forward to it. I have many friends speaking and attending this great show as well I just do not agree with the way this was scheduled and hope that they are able to change things next year, as was told to me last year due to a ski show conflict, this year not so much.
One thing is for certain, you can get your fill at either show and if you're lucky enough, attend both shows and support both causes.
