How To Get Your Job Search Started
by Miriam Salpeter - Jan, 2010
In the “old days,” job seekers could put together some basic information (a resume, a cover letter and a pitch) and, with a little luck, land an opportunity. Now, not so much. People like to see optimized materials (a *good* resume isn’t good enough), a LinkedIn profile is a must, social (online) resumes are more and more common and an online presence is assumed. Not to mention use of Twitter and Facebook, both of which fuel t...

You’re Perfect for the Job, Except...
by Barbara Safani - Jan, 2010
Last year I went on multiple interviews for six different consulting assignments. It’s kind of strange to go on interviews when your profession revolves around teaching others how to interview. It’s often a humbling experience and sometimes I don’t even take my own advice. I thought I was perfect for each of these roles. But my definition of perfect didn’t always jive with the hiring manager’s. My skills were never in question...
Assessing Your Progress
by Nan S. Russell - Jan, 2010
I'm not a big fan of New Years resolutions. Sure I've made dozens of them, all with good intentions and a bit of magical thinking, believing this time the resolution will stick. Maybe a few have, but generally these wishful self-promises end up broken. And when that happens my self-esteem suffers. You see, every time you break a self-promise, your self-trust is weakened. Every time you give up on your commitments your self-...
Great References Must Be Cultivated
by Bob Roth - Jan, 2010
There is an important aspect of the senior year job search that most college students fail to appreciate, undervalue and sometimes ignore. Many students don't seem to understand that the best employers place a great deal of weight on good references. These employers won't hire someone who can't provide them with a list of people who are willing to serve as positive and enthusiastic references. The best references are resp...
Do I Need An Objective Statement On My Resume?
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Jan, 2010
We address this issue all the time as professional resume writers. When clients send us their resume for a free analysis, more often than not they have an objective statement leading off their resume. Well, what once was the standard is no longer considered as such. In fact, using an objective statement has become a dated trend in resume writing. If you want to bring your resume and essentially your career up-to-date there...
Eight Crucial Job Transition Stress Busters
by Marshall Brown - Jan, 2010
Have you just been laid off? Are you "between successes"? Job transitions can be stressful-whether they're due to layoff, a new job or working extra hours because other workers were laid off. If you're facing one of these scenarios consider the following: 1. Take an honest look at yourself. What are your strengths, weaknesses, skills? What is your brand? How are these influencing your transition - positively or negatively? ...
In Service of Others: We Succeed By Helping Others Succeed
by Todd Rhoad - Jan, 2010
For many highly educated and motivated individuals, finding the path to great success usually follows a path lined with personal accomplishment and reward. The speed at which they rise to greatness is directly proportional to size of their achievements. More responsibility leads to greater accountability, ultimately leading to greater success or so we think. There are a few who suggest otherwise. These highly successful pe...
Perhaps the Most Important Area Of Investing - Psychology
by William Lemerond - Jan, 2010
When you are striving for investment and financial excellence, you will have to do so by overcoming some tough obstacles. When you focus on the financial or investing problems you have, you are most likely going to generate feelings of guilt, anger or frustration in yourself. These feelings that arise are the silent investment account and financial killers; when investing you need to invest emotionless, which will help you foc...
Striving For Satisfying Employment
by Kathy Bornheimer - Jan, 2010
The overwhelming majority of people look for jobs; an enlightened few now realize they need to search for satisfying employment. Yes, there is a difference! As a recruiter or a hiring manager in past lives I have experienced an employer driven job market and a workforce driven market. Adjustments must be made depending on the times. We all need work/jobs to meet our needs financially, professionally and personally. Since we...
