Total Reliance for Online Sources

While the internet is a good source of information on the possible job opening in different industries, using the internet to land a good job may not work according to your preferences. When the economic conditions are good, there are few competitions for a single job opening including resumes passed through email.

But because of recession, people who are out of job are getting more aggressive in finding work. They just do not send an email to different companies hoping to get a callback; they visit the companies so that they can properly present themselves.
