Everyone needs a fresh start every once and a while – especially when it comes to a job search. Janet Farley offers seven tips to military spouses in this article:
1. Go back to the drawing board. Assess your current strategy and tweak it one degree on either side of the unemployment line. For example, assume you interviewed for a particular job already.

Find out if a decision has been made. If you were not selected for the job, find out why, if possible. Get constructive feedback so you can avoid making the same mistake, if one was made, in the future.
