Too much “good” advice

Everyone has an opinion and they are always more than happy to give it to you.  In the past you were most likely to hear the opinions of those closest to you or those who could broadcast to the public (television, radio, books, magazines, etc).  In both cases you had a basis for how to evaluate the veracity of what they were telling you.  If the advice was from a friend or family member you could think about what you know of their history, education and life experience and decide if you wanted to take their advice to heart.  If it was a broadcaster or author it was not hard to find if they were qualified to speak on a particular subject.

Today the web is flooded with millions of opinions when all we want is one.  I am glad that we live in a time where everyone can have a voice.  I only wish that I had a filter so that when I need an opinion on an important subject I could easily find the voice in the crowd that has the information I need.  My goal is to try out creative methods of finding employment and avoid the great resume black hole.  I do not plan on giving my opinion on what should work and what should not. I only want to give an accounting of what really happened.

Here are a few example of advice from around the web.
