    Congratulations! That's a great story and you have to love sign on bonuses. I wish I would stumble across a job with a signing bonus. I thought they were just reserved for athletes, military personnel and stock brokers.

    Being honest is huge. When I'm interviewing people I can usually tell when they're making things up. We've been interviewing people for a new position over the last few weeks. You would be amazed at how many people told me they were employed but when I asked them when they could start three of the people told me immediately. I'm really surprised that people don't understand that most employers want you to give your current employer a least two weeks notice. If someone isn't going to give their employer two week's notice it immediately raises a red flag. It shows that they'll probably do the same thing to us at some point. Unless they are a stellar candidate, I discount them right away.

    Oh yeah, one more thing...When my neighbor was looking for a job she actually took an online job search course. She said it helped her immensely.

    Congratulations again for finding your job. It sounds pretty cool.

    It is worth a shot!

    I don't want to sound like a witch but I will not PM anyone my resume or cover letter. I feel as if I've shared enough tips and advice in the article that the rest is up to you all to do. There are plenty of resumes and cover letters online to look at. I looked at dozens before I wrote mine and I continually updated it to fit each job prospect. I do not like the idea that someone could copy my work. I was being generous when I was PM'ing my email to the DONs. Since it is already out there, I will add it to my article so everyone can see it. (Here's another hint- this email resembles my cover letter. I guess you could take it from there.) I will continue to answer specific questions if you all have any.
