A new study shows that even in hard times, employers say good talent does not last long, so job-seekers should not waste time getting back into the job market.

There are several ways to find a job, from newspaper ads  to personal connections. Due to the rise in technology, experts say on of the easiest ways to find a job is online. Some websites will even let you post your application online, and search for jobs in your area.

Unfortunately for some, the search can get tiresome. According to the study, 85 percent of job-searchers lose momentum and confidence. The Texas Workforce Commission says they should focus on their best assets and how to show them in an interview.

David Davis, with the Waco Workforce Commission says, they should focus on "what they bring to that organization, and how they can be a good employee to assist that employer in being successful."

Experts say what job-seekers need to do is, "prepare quickly and act aggressively." Keep an open mind, because many skills can be used in different professions.
