Screwdriver or power drill? Which would you use?
In your job search, speed is of the essence. Time is money and every week you are without work, you are losing net worth.
For example: if you make $100,000 a year, divide that by 52 and realize you make $1923 each week. Losing an important interview could set you back thousands of dollars. Missing an important lead could result in another 6 months of searching, or around $50,000.
