Improving your chances of landing that next job

I have contributed to a piece in today's Guardian 'More Skill Than Luck' about how to improve your chances of landing your next job. The feature identifies 7 mantras of a highly effective job seeker:
  1. Think positively

  2. Be pro-active

  3. Use your friends and family for contacts

  4. Approach employers speculatively

  5. Be decisive

  6. Do more

  7. Embrace the digital age

Some of this is obvious stuff, but check it out for tips to make you really stand out in the job market.
