22. JHBWA
Wouldn't you love to avoid reading want ads, mailing out resumes, dealing with personnel jockeys, and waiting for managers to return your calls?

You can, right now. Thousands of people would kill to get the job-hunting edge you don't even know you have. Down the hall from your office, or in the next building across the parking lot, are the offices of many managers. How does that give you a job-hunting edge? One of those managers could be your next boss.

Unlike people who are daily submitting resumes to your personnel department, you can walk right over to almost any manager's office in your company, stick your head in the door, and ask for advice about working in that manager's operation.

I call it JHBWA: Job Hunting By Wandering Around™. No want ads, no resumes, no application forms, no phone calls. Pure access to the hiring authority. And every Tom, Dick and Jane who has submitted a resume to your company would kill to have it.

Feet, start walking.

(Don't forget: The Job Search Starts At Home.)
