How to Re-ignite a Stagnant Job Search – Proactively Market Your Professional Credentials

This is the next installment of a multi-part posting discussing how to re-ignite a stagnant job search.

Proactively Market Your Professional Credentials.  The mantra here is: Stop looking for a job and start looking for a company you’d like to work for.  Once you identify companies that are (or could be) interesting to you, reach out directly to the likely hiring executive and present your professional credentials.  You will be hunting in the Hidden Job Market.  This technique requires effort, but you will find jobs and job leads that you otherwise would not find.
