Other Career Books
The classic job search book is "What Color is Your Parachute"
(and its website Job Hunter's Bible has many good resources)
"Rites of Passage" (its workbook is almost better) and "Getting Your Foot in the Door" are also good
(especially for executive searches).
Think about your personal brand and read Dan Schwabel's Personal Branding Blog.
Resources, Resumes, etc.
Besides the resources found on job search sites (such as resume samples on Monster.com)
here are a few other I have found:
-Damn Good Resumes
-Wall Street Journal's Career Journal has many good articles on careers.
Considering doing some of the exercises in these books and on these sites (or google terms such as “career aptitude”) to help you understand what you are happiest and most successful doing.
While these exercises seem a bit corny at times; they will help you target your search and create your pitch which is essential.
Also consider a career counselor.
Patti Wilson at Career Company is a well known counselor in Silicon Valley.
I'd also recommend Joel Garfinkle at Dream Job Coaching.
As we are looking for people to help us, we often forget that others need help as well.
It is good networking, a good way to build a friendship, and just good karma.
Consider who in your network may need help or check out groups like JobAngels.
Just Contact Hiring Manager
Serial Entrepreneur Auren Hoffman was asked in an interview "What’s the secret to landing a job?"
His response was "Never check a job board. Spend time determining which company is right for you and apply directly to the company. Don’t send your resume to the recruiter. Apply directly to the hiring manager and tell them, in less than three sentences, why you are special."
