Tech in the job search

I am curious… how are people using technology in their job search?  This could be just about anything from using mail merge to save time on a basic cover letter to setting up a google alert to search for jobs.  I know most people use technology for fun or social networking but if you are in a job search you need to use all of the resources you have available.

You will have the most success if you really focus on your job search.  This is not for those of us that are “open to other opportunities” but rather for those people who NEED a job NOW.  You know, your boss is an ass-hat and you can’t take it any more or you just got right-sized.  Whatever the reason if you NEED a job then you NEED to take it seriously and that means working at it.  Yep, it is a job.  I know the pay sucks but the pay-off can be huge.

So if you are so inclined, post a comment with how you could or have used technology in your job search.  Come on, help a brother out!

Two things are infinite.  The universe and human stupidity.  …and I’m not so sure about the universe.
