I wonder when searching for useful career enhancement and job search articles whether the only thing the authors have ever done is write advice columns. Many of them are professional career coaches, which does not necessarily qualify or disqualify an author. There are many 'professionals' who have a job advising other people without having relevant experience in their own lives; that is, without more than one personal experience in job hunting (i.e., their present jobs). Conversely, an ability to effectively assimilate and present knowledge from other sources is a valuable skill. a Keep that in mind when reading these articles which, although I did scan them for usefulness, my contain information based solely on data culled from other sources - which may also not be first-hand content.
