How to Win the Job [INFOGRAPHIC]

Ever feel like your job hunt has become a long campaign? Just imagine how the presidential hopefuls feel! Barack Obama and Mitt Romney are vying for the most important job in the United States. With the market more competitive than ever, maybe you should stop searching and start campaigning to get the job you want.

Both presidential candidates and job candidates have to worry about many of the same things. Just like the presidential candidates, what you say, how you appear on film and in person, and your online presence will all be judged before you’re elected to your dream job. Whether this dream job takes you to a cubicle, the corner office, or all the way to the White House, it’s important to treat your job hunt like a well-run campaign.

The infographic below, compiled by Spark Hire, an online video resume and interviewing platform, looks at how job seekers can take a page out of the presidential playbook.

From social media to networking, the presidential candidates know a thing or two about stumping for the job. So why not take some lessons from the best?
