Topic: Don't Just Think Outside the Box – Think Out of This World!

speaker When you are searching for a job, the goal is not just to BE better than your competition.  Instead, your goal should be to THINK differently than your competition.  Job boards and headhunters are not the only viable options anymore.  The job market does not have to be hidden once you learn to search using "out of this world" techniques.
