Bangalore: Carrying out a job search in an unstructured manner with the sole intention of reaching out to the potential employer is an ideal recipe for disaster and a good strategy to stay unemployed.

In the present tough job market, it has become essential for an aspirant to diversify his/her job search strategies and those who fail to do so, in all probability tend to struggle.

Here is a brief overview of the list of worst ways to land a job, as reported by Ryan Chatterton of Brazencareerist.
