The recent dive in the stock market is just one indication that we are still on the roller coaster, and this kind of ride makes companies reluctant to hire. Some advice from CareerBuilder (go to the link above for details):

Job seekers

– Don’t apply to every job you see

– Quantify accomplishments on your résumé

– Create a personal brand

– Prepare for your interviews

Job holders

– Communicate with your supervisor

– Find a mentor

– Learn the business

– Treat everyday like it’s an interview
