This activity is done by those who are unemployed
and looking for a new place to ply their skills. It is one of the more challenging and sometimes demoralizing
parts of being human on Earth. You have to go out every day and sell yourself
to people you hardly know, often to join a corporate culture
you could care less about, and somehow yet despise the prospects of office politics
hours or researching a company, formulating individual cover pages
, licking a lot of envelopes
, banging on a lot of doors, making tons of cold calls
freezes your machine dead.
For a Job Search, a person requires;
A nepotismatic family member with a business
Good social-networking skills
Good walking shoes
Patience with online job search sites that are as slow as the feel futile.
Access to a fax machine, or fax software(and old telco modem)
Reference material with contacts for local businesses
The ability to smile at will
Bus fare/bus pass
A clean, smooth telephone manner
Some professional business cards
Of course the whole point of a job search is to get a job, but in most cases you will also have to endure the dreaded, often pre-formatted Job Interview.
