Sal Iannuzzi, CEO of Moster.com was recently interviewed by WSJ. You can read the full interview here, but here are 5 tips Mr.Iannuzzi suggested for finding a job in a tough market.

  1. Stay focused on what you want to do and the type of position you are looking for.

    Instead of jumping at the first opportunity, you should be selective in your job hunt. Focus comes from preparation and anticipation.

  2. Seek jobs that are relevant and build onto your long-term goals.

    If you have a long-term plan, make sure your next step gets you closer to that goal.

  3. Cast a wide net; your dream job may be hiding in a company or industry you never considered.

    Why not - leverage the internet and the options it offers you to extend your search.

  4. Be diverse, as jobs with different responsibilities provide valuable experiences.

    Remember - growth does not always have to be vertical. There is merit in horizontal growth to expand your horizons.

  5. Keep building on those experiences. Eventually, you'll be able to apply what you've learned to just about anything and be successful.

    Don't be stuck in a rut. If you are learning and expanding your skill set - there are no limits.
