“The last time I personally looked for a job was some 29 years ago when in 1990 I applied to a dozen universities for a tenured faculty position in engineering…I recall this history, because that 1990 search was of a different era.

Thus, it was with some trepidation last week that I volunteered to work with a close relative (call her Andrea) to help her find a job in the age of online applications (Monster, Indeed, ZipRecruiter, etc.).”
