If you're currently going through a job search, in between updating your resume, answering ads, and interviewing, you may feel you deserve a day off. However, our experts unanimously agree you should be doing this one thing every single day:

An effective contact strategy takes research, initiative, and accuracy all important ingredients of a successful job search. Research is required to assemble your contact list. Initiative is required to place calls and visit every single person on that list. Accuracy is required because you will need to confirm the spelling and pronunciation of each person’s name as well as his or her title.
