But today, as the job market shrinks and competition for a good position gets tough, only one of those types is going to continue to be successful.

By JoAnn Nix, CPRW, reprinted from www.CareerBank.comWhy do some job seekers manage to land a new position in just a few weeks yet some of their peers' searches seem to last for many months?
