Source: www.CAREEREALISM.com

There are two kinds of job searches, reactive and proactive. Most people use reactive job search strategies, which means they look for job openings and then apply to ones that interest them. So, when you send your resume to recruiters and respond to job board postings, you are really at the mercy of what comes up. In a proactive job search, you pickthe companies and the jobs you are seeking. This way, you get the job that you chose and worked to get versus just hoping a good job comes your way through the recruiters and job boards. Before you do any job searching, make sure you have a really great resume and LinkedIn profile, since employers will use these to see if they wish to speak with you.
