The “Big 4” Job Seeker Time Wasters
WARNING: Don’t follow the crowd and sink too much of your time and money into these classic time wasters:
- Rewriting your resume over and over again, based on amateur advice
- Going back to school, consuming $$$$ education, to avoid your issues or hoping this is a magic solution
- Attending group networking meetings, especially job seeker groups, and meeting strangers
- Applying for posted jobs and waiting for the phone to ring

At 6.0% in July, 2015, Georgia ranked 40th of the 50 states (plus DC). After ranking dead last in mid 2014, this was a big improvement.
How long does a job search take? It depends. However, the Bureau of Labor Statistics tracks lengths of unemployment and they say that the average length of unemployment is about 30 weeks or 7+ months.
