Insanity is doing the same thing and expecting different results. I'be been reading Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters and the book is rampant with great advice on looking for and securing a position in todays climate. (Which as you know, is exceedingly difficult to get noticed if you have had to contend with being unemployed for any given period of time after 2010.) I have actually changed my strategy as I get deeper into the literature, and found that it has in fact, exerted a more positive response to my efforts. I am actually getting interviews, and it is somewhat consistent, so even if I don't get the jobs, at least I have enhanced my methods and I'm getting the opportunity to practice interviewing. The only way to improve is to practice, it has been proven time and time again.
