Overland Park, KS, August 14, 2015 –(PR.com)– BCS Overland Park, KS says there are several things job seekers can do to ease the stress of the job search while speeding the process along. One rule of thumb says that it will take one month of job searching for every $10,000 of salary that you were earning; if you were making $70,000 it will take seven months. There are several areas that can be addressed to minimize the process including defining target markets as well as assessing your transferable skill sets and how they fit into those markets. If you are only applying to jobs online and not effectively networking, this alone can as much as double the length of the search. Resumes and cover letters should highlight skills and achievements to demonstrate transferable skills and be customized for the particular opportunity.
