Job Hunting

No, I'm not looking for a new job. =)

But I was discussing how to properly apply for a job in this day and age, with a friend of mine who is specifically looking for jobs in publishing.

And then I remembered that a second friend of mine, Elizabeth, had written up a very nice series of "Secret Handshake" job tips on her blog.

So I recommend, if you're looking for a job, that you go read them. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and start from tip #1. A lot is common sense, but a lot of it is just plain good advice too.

Good advice - in looking for any job, not just in publishing.

Oh, this is why I suddenly had a comment on a months-old post! ::grin::
