Targeted Job Searches – Harder Work But Worth It If you have spent the last eight hours posting for jobs online, you have wasted seven hours and 50 minutes.

Some then decide to just compile a large database of likely employers and try the ‘scattershot’ tactic. A bigger universe intuitively seems more likely to result in employer interest.
