Here are seven habits to separate yourself from the pack, move your job application to the top of the pile, and land yourself not only back into a job, but perhaps an even better one than before:

Excellent suggestions and I can say from my own experience that I have done all of those things and they have been tremendously helpful.  The extending kindness tip has probably been one of the most important tips that kept me from sinking into a sea of depression and self pity.

That's good to know! I think people underestimate the power of helping others. Often, the people helping get as much out of it as the people being helped.

I have always believed in good job karma, and for as many times as I have stuck my neck out, or referred a friend or previous coworker for a current position, it has come back around to help me too.

Sometimes it doesn't even take more than a few positive words as a professional reference, and other times it's a matter of asking around to help another find a job. Whatever we can do to help, it certainly is worthwhile and that is why I try to stay in contact via a simple friendly email ever so often, to keep a good network of past and present coworkers!
