Ways to Sabotage Your Job Search

Looking for a new job but having no luck? You may be inadvertently sabotaging your efforts by making easy-to-avoid errors.

"It still surprises me that in most cases, people are their own worst enemies when it comes to getting a new job," says Tom Parr, of executive search firm Holland & Associates.

Check out these top ways career experts say job seekers sabotage their efforts. Avoid them, and you'll be on your way to a more successful job search.

"Without a good system, you have no way to know if you're doing the right things, no way to find and stop the things you're doing wrong," says career blogger and coach Steven Savage. "People should track their vital numbers--resumes sent out, contacts made, interviews gotten--so they can improve those numbers."

"Some people spend too much time thinking about what to say in their cover letter or researching the company, and miss the window for applying," says executive coach Kathi Elster.

Trying to match all of a job ad's requirements
"When employers draft ads for jobs, they have the ideal candidate in mind. The ideal candidate rarely exists," says career counselor Kathleen Brady. "Unless something is listed as 'required,' if you're lacking two or three qualifications, just apply anyway."

Not quantifying accomplishments
"Using numbers to show things like how much revenue you brought in, the costs you avoided, or the percent increase in efficiency you were responsible for, tell a hiring manager a lot more about your capabilities than words can," says J.T. Kirk, the author of "Confessions of a Hiring Manager."

Use a resume builder for help quantifying your achievements. Professionally written resume samples and examples will help you show the results of your work.

"Inactivity and procrastination breed hopelessness. It's essential to stay active in your job search, even when you don't feel like it," says career counselor Joanne Meehl. She says too many job-seekers say they're looking, when all they're doing is watching TV or mowing the lawn while merely thinking about finding a job.

Failing to maintain relationships
"The world is all about connections," says Cynthia Kazalia, a recruiter for New Directions Career Center. "In addition to networking, try to maintain relations with former supervisors and coworkers. You never know when you might need one another in a job search."

Not following directions
"Many people sabotage themselves at step one, and will never move on from there," says Naomi Moneypenny, vice president of research and technology at ManyWorlds. "If you can't follow simple directions in a job posting, you could be screened out immediately."

"Oftentimes, job candidates disregard background and reference checks or educational verification for degree completion, or exaggerate or flat-out lie about their credentials," says Lizandra Vega, author of "The Image of Success." Stick with the truth, because chances are you will be caught.

Botching the cover-letter salutation
"Writing 'Dear Sir or Madam' is a clear and quick path to rejection, when you could easily find the name of the hiring manager. Even worse is 'Dear Sirs.' In the past two years I've had to respond to at least a dozen candidates by telling them they'd just 'Dear Sir-ed' their way out of a job," says Lauren Milligan, a career coach with ResuMAYDAY. She advises that if you can't find the name of the hiring manager online, use a professional salutation like "Dear Hiring Committee."

Being too self-centered
"A cover letter needs to show exactly how your values and experience mesh with what the company needs," says Art Fox, who teaches business writing at DePaul University. "Writing about your accomplishments is not enough."

"I can't believe how careless people can be," says Michael Hayes, of Momentum Specialized Staffing, who recently got a cover letter stating, "Hello, I just moved from Illinosi to the Phoenix area and would lovbe to get started working...." Lorne Epstein, creator of the Facebook application InSide Job, joins his disbelief, having just fielded a note stating, "I hope that this does not reach you you redundantly."

Forgetting the revealing power of the Internet
Of 400 applicants Kirk Sullivan, president of Cr8 Public Relations, received for a recent opening, he reports that "more than 300 sent resumes that did not match their LinkedIn resume.... At least 100 had Facebook profile photos of them half naked, in a 'love lock,' or holding a bottle of liquor. In addition, Google word searches found that the writing samples of more than 150 applicants were taken from other people's writing on the Internet."

Using a questionable email address
"The name mrluvuallnite@____ or sexylittlemommy@____ may get you a few nods on a dating site, but not with a potential employer," says tech writer and resume consultant Jae Henderson.

Follow these expert tips to stop sabotaging your job search, so you can land your dream job.

How to Find a Low-Stress Job

Chronic job stress, which the World Health Organization has called a "worldwide epidemic," is not the occasional aggravation of a dysfunctional copier or an annoying coworker. It's the energy-draining, psyche-straining, day-to-day mental grind that results in accidents, insomnia, irritability, fatigue, and overall lower quality of life.
But work doesn't have to stress you out. There are dozens of low-stress jobs available across a wide variety of fields, according to Laurence Shatkin, career information expert and author of "150 Best Low-Stress Jobs." And the vast majority of those jobs have good growth potential and good wages as well, Shatkin tells Yahoo! HotJobs.

Best Low-Stress Job for You?

Reaction to stressors is idiosyncratic. Some find the pressure of exactitude debilitating, others thrive on it. Some can't handle conflict, while others take arguments in stride.

Hate time pressure? Archivists, who plan and oversee the arrangement of exhibitions, have a more leisurely pace of work than many other professions. Average annual earnings of archivists were nearly $41,000, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS).

Prefer a short workweek? Massage therapists and fitness trainers work fewer hours per week than any other professionals. These fields are growing fast as well, although the pay is less than many other fields; and many positions are contract, without benefits (which some people could find stressful).

Don't want to look over your shoulder? Environmental scientists enjoy lower competition than many other fields. The career also offers an enviable 25% job growth rate and an average salary of $56,000, according to the most recent BLS data.

Want freedom from the bottom line? Mathematicians and sociologists -- average salaries, $87,000 and $60,000, respectively -- have to worry less about the impact their decisions have on company results.

Run from unpleasant people? You may be more comfortable working with plans (marine engineers, average earnings $73,000) or theories (physicists, average earnings $94,000).

To choose a low-stress job or career, it's important to consider what you can and can't abide, according to Andrea Moselle, senior manager of work/life at AstraZeneca Pharmaceuticals. "Any job can be stressful or not, depending on how you view it."

De-Stress Your Current Job

Not everyone can find a great low-stress job quickly. If you're at wits end now, there are several ways to take the edge off your work situation:

Look at your own attitudes. While it might seem like the job itself is the culprit, experts suggest changing your attitudes and the way you adapt, or don't adapt, to job stressors. "If you're confident in yourself and positive about the world and open to new solutions, you'll find it easier to be resilient to stressful situations," Moselle says.

Gain control. Psychologists agree that when people experience less stress, they have some degree of over their environment. Even if it's something as simple as organizing your messy desk at the end of the day, or making a list of tasks, you'll not only clear up the mental clutter, but gain a sense of mastery and control over your job.

Get physical. Physical occupations such as massage therapist are considered low stress, Shatkin says, largely because it's harder to build up stress-generated adrenalin when you're moving around.

What if you have a sedentary job? After a contentious meeting, make time to walk around the block or around the building. Go beyond the stress ball and move your whole body, even if it's for a minute or two. Not only will you experience a decrease in stress-releasing chemicals like cortisol, you may get a fitness boost as well.

Track your accomplishments. A common denominator of many low-stress jobs is tangible results. Construction is considered a lower stress job in many ways because workers clearly see the fruits of their labors. If, like many, you have a job without a clear tangible output, Shatkin suggests keeping a tally that indicates what you've accomplished, or positive testimonial letters or emails from colleagues and customers.

"Besides adding to a sense of accomplishment, all of these documents can be useful at performance-appraisal time or for assembling a portfolio when job-seeking," he says.

Join an employee network. Groups that help employees who care for children or elderly parents, for example, are thriving in many companies. "These networks are a great way to find support and networking and mentoring help, as well as finding the tools to take some of the stress away on the job and off the job," Moselle says.

Make your needs known. Most companies have some feedback mechanisms for letting employees vent constructively. Whether you need child care services, flex time, fewer interruptions in your schedule, or a change in workflow patterns, Moselle suggests taking advantage of all opportunities to share ways of reducing your stress.

Adverse Effect of Technology

"Adverse Effect of Technology" 
In this article I will comment that" Because of the growing use of technology, social skills. 
"I want the concept to continue to grow here. Before computers and advanced communications equipment that we have had at work, there was a lot of manual processing involved. orders were processed manually were used as transport, financial transactions and many other business processes. 

All the significant administrative burden of documents, reports, magazines, records, tables, etc. We have of course uses the latest technology of the day, such things as typewriters, calculators, storage systems, cash registers, and tabulating equipment included. Still, emphasis on manual processing, which we were forced to work together, like it or not, meant, hence the need for better interpersonal communication. In other words, necessity we were forced to socialize, so the company is to function . Because the complexity of business processes, the company would lose time on a task, hence the need for long-term care planning. Today, the electronic automation used to implement virtually all business processes in an enterprise. The idea is unthinkable without ITSupport or electronic communications. Although such devices have the option of accelerating, but the people are no longer required to follow their orbits around the breakdown in interpersonal communication needs. And because our jobs are not as difficult as they once were, the Technology allows us to make changes on the fly to make. 

Therefore, the long-term planning has been sacrificed and reactionary management practices have their place. In truth, the very long-term planning. necessary to remain competitive in a global economy but this is not the mentality in the corporate culture today more As I mentioned in my article, we have an open position of our technology, with emphasis on the three developed regions results: First, that a halt when the power company interruption (we see no more, the business processes) is, and secondly, it tends to short-term planning to stress as opposed to long distance (where we will be able to content for small tasks to meet) and thirdly, the basic interpersonal relationships are negatively affected, because we are not forced to communicate with others. Again, I'm certainly not anti-technology, but neither I am anti-human socialization. 

When I look at something in the 30 - have learned from years of experience informatiesystemen industry is that people from all the material that they could people who provide information, not technology, projects and business processes are performed by people who play are not robots that human welfare use, this is important in all. I have always found it fairly easy to teach people about technology, in fact, it is relatively easy for a person only for a particular device application. But it's much harder to give them the socialization. skills communicate effectively with others is why our slogan is, "remains the best computer software - the mind.

Your Adsense Account Terminated?

Google, the undisputed market leader in search engines from then until today, is of great importance to the quality and relevance of their search engines. Especially now that the company is public. To the shareholders and users of its engines are happy, given the quality of results returned significance.

For the same reason to do the wrong thing to AdSense and other forms of advertising, either intentionally or unintentionally, will result in a severe penalty can be banned and even have their account terminated. There's nothing like a good action taken to do to offenders from to keep the same things.

So for those thinking to achieve a career in Adsense, not only on the strategies they use to get more profit. Consider some things first before we really get involved.

hidden text. Filling your advertisement page with texts to small to read, has the same color as the background and using css for the sole purpose of loading and rich in content and copy keywords, you deserve a prize given to punishment those who left are hidden.

Page cloaking. This is not a common practice of using browser or bot sniffers to serve the bots can see from a different page than the page your visitors. Loading a page with a bot that the user never a man is not defined, no. This is the wrong click on something you want but do not want.

several presentations. Introduction of several copies of your domain and pages is another thing to stay away. For example, if you try to submit a URL to an Adsense as two URLs are the same as inviting trouble and even termination. It is also a reason the car for those authors to avoid getting the communication. Better check if your domain is presented as a search engine for a specific file and try again. If you pass this then. It is not logical to consider the possibility of processing and presentation again.

Link farms. Be careful who and what your Adsense links. The search engines know that you can not control your links in. But you can control what the link. Link has always been a rotten apple farming in the eyes of search engines like Google have been. This is reason enough to try to avoid them. With more than 100 on a single page, it is considered a link farm and not try to make it higher.

Page rank for sale. If you are online for a while have, you notice there are some sites selling their PR links or trading with other sites. If you do, expect a ban anytime in the future. It is normal to sell ads or gain the link. But direct advertising for your Page Rank is a way to bad next to the search engines.

Doors. This page is similar to cloaking. The practice of a page full of keywords with ads of the election to redirect visitors to a "user-friendly" page is a big problem for search engines. There are many SEO firms offering this kind of service. Now that you know what they are trying at all costs be avoided.

multiple domains with same content. If you are not aware, search engines look at domains IP recording dates, and many others. When it has several domains with the same exact content is not hiding something, they can. The same applies, multiplied by the content often on separate pages, subdomains, and the transfer of several areas on the same content.

Many techniques are used for search engines and, above all, not just Google. Having a mindset that you are building your Adsense on your pages for users of the man and not for bots, you can be sure of great things for your ads and Web sites.

Buying Paintings

Have you ever wondered if what you know about is accurate? Consider the following paragraphs and compare what you know to the latest info on . A 20th century art movement suppress its’ roots in Italian and Russian beginnings, Futurism is said to have largely began with the writing of a 1907 aspiration on music by the Italian composer Ferruccio Busoni, and explored every medium of art to convey its’ meanings. The Italian poet Filippo Tommaso Marinetti was the first to produce an record pull which was summed up the major principles that became the Manifesto of Futurism in 1909. It included the passionate loathing of ideas from the past, and keep from that enmity of political and artistic traditions, espoused a love for speed and technology.

The philosophy of Futurism regarded the car, the plane, and the industrial town over legendary of the technological triumph of mankind over nature. With Marinetti at the helm, a few artists of the time introduced the tenets of the philosophy to the visual arts, and represented the movement in its’ first phase in 1910. The Russian Futurists were fascinated screen dynamism and the restlessness of modern urban life, purposefully seeking to provoke controversy and attract attention to their works down insulting reviews of the static art of the past, and the circle of Russian Futurists were predominantly literary as opposed to being overtly artistic.

Cubo - Futurism was a school of Russian Futurism formulated in 1913, and many of the works incorporated Cubism’s usage of angular forms combined with the Futurist predisposition for dynamism. The Futurist painter Kazimir Malevich was the artist to develop the style, but dismissed it for the inception of the artistic style known as Suprematism, that focused upon the fundamental geometric shapes as a form of non - objective art. Suprematism grew around Malevich, veil most prominent commotion being produced between 1915 and 1918, but the movement had halted for the indeed part by 1934 in Stalinist Russia.

You may not consider everything you just read to be crucial information about . But don't be surprised if you find yourself recalling and using this very information in the next few days.

Though at one point, those Russian poets and artists that considered themselves Futurists had collaborated on works such a Futurist opera, but the Russian movement broke down from persecution for their belief in for love rumination with the start of the Stalinist age. Italian Futurists were strongly linked with the early fascists impact the hope for modernizing the society and economy in the 1920s through to the 1930s, and Marinetti founded the Futurist Political Party in early 1918, which was next absorbed into Benito Mussolini’s National Fascist Party.

As tensions grew within the various artistic faces that considered themselves Futurists, many Futurists became associated with fascism which later translated into Futurist architecture being born, and interesting examples of this winsomeness burden be found today even though many Futurist architects were at odds in the fascist taste for Roman imperial patterns. Futurism has even influenced many other 20th century art movements such as Dadaism, Surrealism, and Art Deco styles. Futurism as a movement is considered extinct for the most part with the death of Marinetti in 1944.

As Futurism gave way to the actual future of things, the ideals of the artistic movement have remained significant in Western culture through the expressions of the commercial cinema and culture, and can even be as an influence in modern Japanese anime and cinema. The Cyberpunk genre of films and books owe much to the Futurist tenets, and the reaction has even spawned Neo - Futurism, a style of theatre at utilizes on Futurism’s focuses to create a new form of stagecraft. Much of Futurism’s inspiration came from the previous movement of Cubism, that involved such famed artists over Pablo Picasso and Paul Cezanne, and created much of the threshold for Futurism concluded its’ philosophy.

If you've picked some pointers about that you can put into action, then by all means, do so. You won't really be able to gain any benefits from your new knowledge if you don't use it.
