  1. As an IT specialist who is heavily invested in a technical job search, my biggest concern is that in my impatient attitude to find a position, i’ll have accepted the wrong one. Making a poor decision like this is what someone can regret the rest of their life. I say that because, you’d have completely wasted your time learning contrary skills and experience.

  2. Dear RicK H.

    I think you are absolutely correct. My book doesn’t really address that. That is why I plan to beef-up the interview section for the next addition and/or on my blog.(www.crackingthenewjobmarket.com).
