The tips given by tomvehoski in post 55 in this thread http://elsmar.com/Forums/showthread.php?t=58965 got me thinking about tips and tricks for getting work so I thought it might be useful to many covers if others could share tips they have picked up over the years for getting a job.

Wes Bucey has given us plenty of good advice in how to get past the gate keepers and target the decision maker but I was wondering what people on the cove have learned from experience in terms of tips and tricks for getting a job.

To start with, on one occasion, as a result of advice I read on not discussing money issues, I decided to avoid talking money at one interview. It was good that I did as I nearly fell off my chair when the offer came through. The money I was offered was about 50-60% more than any number I would have mentioned but then there was a skill shortage at that time so that experience is very much an exception to the rule but not talking money certainally paid off.

What tips n ticks have others picked up in their experience.

I took the liberty of adding to the title. A lot of the job advice I have seen here is stuff that is "old hat", aka "common knowledge". Not that much of the "old" advice isn't still true today, but much has changed over the years. Aspects such as Monster.com and LinkedIn didn't exist not so many years ago is one example of the seismic shift.

Anyway, have at it.

I know one hot related topic is what can you do when you're 55 or older and you lose your job. Not to mention those who have been out of work for 6 months, or a year or longer. I know several people in that position and they can't even get hired at Walmart. They submit applications and typically hear nothing back.
