How long does looking for a job take?
1) In this economy, should I take any job first, while searching for an ideal job? 2) how long does a normal job hunt take? 3) How long does it take for a company to reply, if they don't, what should I do? 4) Is tracking down the HR Manager a good idea? 5) What other methods besides internet searching is a good idea now?
