If you are actively searching for a job, there is no reason why your job search should be stagnant. Instead, you should be attending interviews on a weekly basis. The more interviews you attend, the more chances you have of landing your new job.
There are many ways to be exposed to new and exciting opportunities. I am not referring to the traditional job aggregator sites. I am talking about social media sites, like Twitter. Whether you are in the executive, mid, or entry level phase of your career, using Twitter the right way might just lead you to your new top-paying job.
