Next Pay Attention to These Top 10 Job Search Trends-9 Next

If someone has shown initial potential interest in interviewing you but then later cools off, know when to say when. Don’t keep emailing, private-messaging, calling them and such. While they may discourteously drop the ball in getting back to you in some instances, in others, they are just doing their job and closing the candidacy door. Whether this person holding your interest is someone you would be reporting to or a recruiter match-making to a hiring manager’s needs, they are busy, sometimes harried and have a million other balls they are juggling. Know when they are saying – or implying – “no,” and move on. It is in your own best interest, emotionally and pragmatically. Keep forging ahead.

The following list of 10 trends, identified by Jacqui Barrett-Poindexter, MRW, writing for, is designed to help you separate the wheat from the chaff, identifying those activities or rules of thumb you should consider for a successful job search.

Implemented intentionally, these 10 career trends will help to meld and mold your successful strategy.
