1) DEVELOP YOUR PERSONAL BRAND

Before you start your labor-intensive career search it is crucial to develop a personal brand. Nationally syndicated career expert and Careerrealism.com contributor, J.T. O'Donnell (http://www.jtodonnell.com/) articulates the importance of selling your "business of one" in this informative video called "Creating a strong career identity."

Takeaway tips:

* Embrace your inner salesperson and showcase your top professional assets. Bring your strengths to light by acknowledging how you work, learn and communicate.
* Niche market yourself: Stop being everything to everyone. Not every employer will appreciate your strengths, so make sure you seal the deal with a company that shares a mutual admiration with you.
* Create an interactive identity through Linkedin.com, Facebook.com, Twitter.com and web-based resume building sites (Google Docs) while citing objective deliverables when explaining your accomplishments.

The old wives tale is true: it's not “what you know”, but "who you know". According to Ehow.com 79 percent of college graduates said networking is an effective job search tool. This video from Ehow.com delves into the world of networking and provides useful tips to garner professional success.

Takeaway tips:

* Create a network (and share your professional goals) with the four "F"s: family, friends, friends of the family and family of friends.
* Have business cards made. It's professional and resonates with people.
* One out of three jobs comes from former employers. Leverage your past work connections for your future success.
