Way back when, there were no CV's or resumes for most jobs you'd just walk in to a place you think you'd fit in and speak to the guy/gal in charge of hiring face to face, they would then judge your character by the brief interview and you'd either get the job or not.todays paper or online resumes give no hint as to the actual persons demeanor and as a result a lot of qualified applicants miss jobs that they would be well suited for as there is no soul in words printed on paper as in a cv sent through email.

Don't start looking until you are truly ready to move. If you start applying now and get phone calls, what are you going to tell the employer? They will not wait for you.

Try posting a fake job on Craigslist. Then sit back and watch the resumes pour in. Within 1 hour you'll have a couple dozen. You'll get to see the sheer numbers of people you'll be competing against, as well as their credentials.
