Job searching is a skill – and like learning to dance or using new technology, it takes some practice.  It also takes the right tools.  In this presentation I will talk about the tools you need for a better shot at finding the job you want—Resumes, applications, job search websites, interviewing, networking—and customizing those tools to be useful for you as an individual.
