Job search--what does that person do?

For some of us, the most difficult aspect of job-hunting is trying to figure out exactly what job title we should be searching for.  For example, what is the difference between a real-estate analyst and an analyst in the biotech industry?  And, what do brand managers, hedge fund managers and human resource managers actually do on a day-to-day basis?

Do you know what industry you would like to work in? --Media, Manufacturing, Technology, Telecom, Transportation, Health Care....?

There are multiple resources available in BCS to find answers to these questions, including a book named "The MBA Career Bible."

If you find yourself applying to a wide range of jobs with little focus or direction, I suggest you stop by! I read all about sales and sales management in the pharmaceutical industry this morning and I now have a much better idea of how to proceed with my search.

Happy job hunting!
