Presentation:
This past summer I found myself unexpectedly looking for my next position. While working my search, I took a contract position as recruiter for a local company. During the day I was a recruiter looking at resumes, cover letters etc. recruiting candidates for sales and engineering positions. At night and on weekends I was writing my own resume and cover letter looking for my next position.

Looking at resumes and talking with candidates I learned some things to help my own search. Unfortunately I also got to see the frustrating side of being a candidate in a job search. I’d like to say it sped up my search, it didn’t, and I was more patient with the process as a candidate, only God can give me more patience, but I did learn things that can help your search and understanding of the search process.
