I just ran a promotion with the 21 days book and normally I see no responses to the book.

This promotion was different.

One of the promotion spots was on Kindle Korner.

One thing that applies to writing resumes and books is to thoroughly revise either. Take your time, take frequent breaks so that you can have the best resume. There really isn't any other way to do it to be successful.

Weather and the job hunt

I'm looking out of the window at the falling snow today. There isn't much snow falling and it's not accumulating thankfully. This brought me to thinking about how changeable the weather can be this time of year. You need to be prepared for all different weather conditions as you go out on your job hunts.
An umbrella is a useful thing to have, they go well with most interview clothes especially suits. So that you can maximize your umbrella purchase I recommend getting a better quality one. Mine is a Tote's all wind-proof one not that I'm endorsing Tote's umbrella's. The cheap ones do not last and mine came from a second-hand store so I didn't buy it new.
You need to also expect occasional rain falls this time of year. The last thing you need is to show up to the interview soaked through and through. Can you imagine the impression it will make when you hand them your completely soaked resume? So, like always, you need to be prepared also for more extreme weather. Even though they are probably better to have I don't recommend wearing a rain suit or poncho to an interview.

Free online e-book library

There is an online library where you can check out ebooks including my job hunting books. This is something that is free so check it out today.

They allow you to check out up to three books at a time and I personally have made 21 different books available in the library. Soon, I'll be adding a few more as I have a lot of author friends.

These are Kindle editions also I would like to note, there are apps readily available from Amazon for your PC, Android, Blackberry, iPad and many others if you do not have a Kindle.

Daily writing

While you are hunting for a job you need to be writing something daily. It doesn't need to be much, just write something. Maybe about 50-100 words per day. This is about the length of a cover letter in many cases. What you'll end up doing is improving your typing speed and you'll be able to write everything more effectively. Make sure you are looking for spelling and syntax errors in everything you write including in your daily practice sessions. That way you can avoid them in the future. Have a great day and I wish you the greatest success.
