Career Resources From Around the Web
One woman’s LinkedIn update resulted in 300 email (or InMail) messages, within two months she had more than 20 interviews, and landed a position with a tech company she liked.

The right experience may land you the job but not necessarily the pay. Your strategy must include accurate detail of the value of what you do, and less contingent on where and how long you do it:
Quantify your results to show impact
Qualify your total package as a fit with the organization
Gather enough intel to speak to the needs of the employer or interviewer rather than guessing what is needed.
