Summary Sunday: Job Search Answers

Job seekers have a lot of questions. So this week’s summary dishes out job search answers!

summary sunday job search answers

When you embark on a job search, there’s a huge learning curve. There’s so much you don’t know (and even more that you don’t know you don’t know!)

When I started writing about job search, that was my sole purpose – to fill the gaps in knowledge and answer job seeker questions.

This “lack of knowledge” about job search is still a problem today. There are thousands, if not millions, of resume writers, recruiters and job search coaches sharing their tips and services. All that info can be overwhelming.

That’s why I started Summary Sunday and this is issue #427.

Every week, almost without exception, I round up timely and popular job search topics. 427 summaries have been published since I started.

This week’s summary includes answers to your questions about:

  • Salary information in posts
  • The good and bad about LinkedIn’s new Cover Story
  • Launching an undercover job search on LinkedIn
  • Negotiating a lowball job offer
  • Questions to ask to learn about company culture
  • A new career option – Chief of Remote
  • Post-Pandemic Career Opportunities
  • Side Hustles for Retirees

I hope this week’s summary delivers job search answers to those questions you had and even questions you didn’t know you had.
