|When your resume looks good but does not generate any interest, it is time to give the entire process a good look, starting with the resume itself.|
It is possible that it looks good to you because you paid for it and because it is better than your old resume. Just to be certain, you should have a few of your trusted friends look it over. They should also look over your cover letter if you have one. And if you do not have one, now is the time to correct that.
You should approach your job search as if it were a job itself. It requires planning, organization, and specific goals that you actively pursue every day. And when you apply for jobs, be sure they are a reasonable match with your experience and training.
One of the most effective ways to find a new job is through networking. If you are not currently engaged in several networks, that is a step to take today. You can further expand your search by using a combination of such resources as newspapers, trade papers and magazines, online job search sites, college career centers, and a well-recommended employment agency.
A professional resume can certainly help your job search, but relying too heavily on it is no help at all.
