Minimize the “Resume Black Hole” When Applying for Jobs Using These Tools

Many job seekers feel overwhelmed in their search, or don’t feel like they’re making progress. Minimize that by having daily or weekly ‘Job Search Action Items’ where you’re taking even small measures towards your overall goal of finding a new satisfying career. One tool we’ve found that helps you capture your action items and also provides advice is called Job Search Power Meter .

I used it when I was looking, and being an engineer, it was critical to maintaining my day to day outlook.  It gave me a way to “score” my day to day activities. In my roles, I have always been accountable for metrics or KPIs—this app became the way I measured myself in my search. It also helped me to focus on the higher value/higher return actions—networking vs online applications.
