Yesterday, I found another resource for you - an article by Roxanne Ravenel, The www.UrbanCareerCoach.com - Three Sure-Fire Methods of Scaring Off Potential Employers.
Ravenel offers great career advice and tips for effective use of personal technology in a job search.
-Using emails that are not strictly business. Emails with references to body parts, religious or political affiliations or Obscenities are a no-no.
-Hitting a sour note with ring backs on your phone - Ravenel urges to avoid "cutesy or edgy ring-backs and stick to the traditional ring, at least during an active job search".
-De-valuing voicemail - Use voicemail during the job search and check it frequently. Missed messages equal missed opportunities.
If the job search is stalled, check to see if technology is the culprit.
