By Liz Ryan, Forbes Contributer If I could grab job-seekers by the figurative lapels I’d tell them, “The talent market has moved. It is not where you left it. It’s a different world now!”
Many job-seekers are too docile and compliant for their own good. They think that they will shuffle through the steps in a big-company recruiting process and get a great job at the end of the process. They are mistaken. Only the people who advocate for themselves end up being valued as much as they should be.
