Voice Mail Skills for a Job Search

Voice mail skills are an important part of your job search.

Anyone looking for a new position should have an answering machine for his/her home phone.

Job recruiters and headhunters are surprised that any job seeker in today's market would operate without a home answering machine. They found the lack of an answering machine to be frustrating and somewhat disconcerting.

The telephone answering machine may prove to be one of the best investments you ever made.

For those of you who do have answering machines, please make sure your answering message is a professional one, not something too cutesy featuring your singing children all under the age of three, politically incorrect humour, etc.

Think about the image you are trying to convey and consider changing your message while you are job hunting.

Check your phone skills.
