In my experience, responding to posts on a company's job board yields good results when you know someone at the company that you include in your references or who can contact the hiring manager for you. Other times it just seems like the application goes into a black hole.

I like point #4 much better. A little boldness goes a long way these days to help you stand out. Nice article, short and sweet.

Debra Feldman, JobWhiz: There's another point that should be included on this list: before you need to find a new job, start reaching out to make new contacts and refresh your existing connections to get on hiring authorities' radar screens even before an opening is posted. Let your contacts know that you would like to have informational meetings with the decision makers over specific functions. Cold call or email the appropriate contact at target employers and ask for career advice. If the right hiring decision makers know you before they have an open position, they may contact you to determine your level of interest or to ask you for a recommendation. While an inside contact can help you get to the top of a resume pile, having an early lead may mean that you beat the competition by being the first choice candidate from the very beginning of the recruiting process.

You are so right. I mean, take the first action she mentioned, Find Their Job Boards. Will someone tell me how you find job boards inside a company and every company I worked for, the job board was for current employees only. I am unemployed and this article was a waste of my time.
