Todays job market is anything but traditional. Job seekers have to go beyond the paper resume, leveraging social media tools and maintaining an online persona that highlights not only IQ but EQ (emotional intelligence). How can applicants use these new indicators of talent to better showcase their skills and convey competency? Let alone find a job that youll love? Some say that cultural fit can be as important as title and salary, so how do you persuade an employer that you can not only do the job, but that youre one of the team? Our panel of career coaches and modern job experts will help you craft your most-hirable self and conquer the evolving job market.
