    The 7 Must Read SlideShare Presentations for Job Seekers
    These seven presentations are handpicked by the Applicant Blog at applicant.com. They also got some love from from getthatjobonline.com

    1. Effective Job Interviewing from Both Sides of the Desk
    It is gives great advice by looking at both sides of the job interview. My favorite tidbit is, "Your Awesomeness is not self-evident."

    2. 10 Job Search Attitudes that Will Get You More Interviews
    Short, but sweet. I think attitude is often an overlooked piece in the job hunt puzzle. My favorite tidbit is, "I will search as if I don't need a job."

    3. Rethink your Job Search
    This reads a bit like marketing material for JobTiger, but is still has good content. My favorite tidbit is, "Tap into job openings that may not have been published."

    4. Leveraging LinkedIn for the Job Search
    A great little walkthrough on using LinkedIn for your job search. Favorite tidbit, "When you find a connection, leverage it to find other connections."

    5. 10 Commandements of Job Search
    This is the presentation by the Applicant Blog, and it stresses staying positive. "Ignore the fact that your friend, uncle, aunt and even your mother-in-law is unemployed. It's about you."

    6. Job Serach with Social Media & Mobile
    This is a great presentation that covers LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter & some mobile apps. "Maxims remain the same ... tactics are very different."

    7. Converging Trends Impacting Your Job Search
    It covers a lot of ground discussing marketing trends, social media and what networking means today. "Become a content expert ... shift, cull & create content"

    Ten Things to Learn This School Year
    It seems to me that schools often teach the opposite of what's necessary for the real world. Perhaps in school people have plenty of time and no money, so long papers, emails, and presentations are not a problem. However, people in the real world have plenty of money (or at least more money) and no time. This is a list of what I wished I learned in school before I graduated.
