Welcome aboard, job seekers! Thanks for checking out this firstguide to communications-supported job search and careergrowth in relentlessly changing technological times.

The right messaging -- what you say, why you say it,and when you say it -- is as important today to youremployment goals as it has been at any time since Leonardo da Vinciwrote the first professional resume in 1482.

Consider recent job-finding history:

In the 1990s the Internet boom kicked in with new tools toconnect jobs and people: e-mail, websites, cell phones, mailinglists, and online bulletin boards. In the 21st century the double-time march of recruitingtechnology skyrocketed, building a techno-swamp populated withendless ideas of how to connect work and people throughsmartphones, wonder tablets, apps, and social media for virtualnetworking.

You're competing in a new world of work out there.If your job search is treading water -- or evendrowning-- there's a better way. Make a splash! Engagehiring authorities through a communications-centered campaign withsmart content.
