    Job hunting requires knowing how to manage several different moving parts. First of all, do you know how to write a professional resume? Secondly, what does it take to write a cover letter? When should you send thank you notes, and what should the content be?

    There are many ways modern job seekers can use the Internet to help them find new jobs too. Use LinkedIn, Twitter, and other job search engines to really boost your job search!
