Quick and Quintessential Career & Job Tips
Job-hunting tips from the January 7, 2002 issue of QuintZine.
In our article about how to conduct a long-distance job search, we suggest checking out college career centers in your targeted new city.

A fee may be charged for services, but it won’t be as expensive as a private career counselor. And, of course, this community-college suggestion applies to all job-seekers, not just those searching from a distance.
Bottom line: Unless you truly believe you can make a case for yourself, and the job is your absolute dream, don’t apply for jobs you don’t qualify for.
