What Job Seekers Can Learn from a Close Call Ice Fishing
by Kris Plantrich - Mar, 2010
Learn From Others Mistakes, Failures and Successes An ice fishing outing a few weeks ago reminded me of a simple, yet valuable lesson. With weeks of cold weather and a previous weekend of successful ice fishing we thought we would try it again. The week had been beautiful with temperatures in the mid to upper 30’s and sunny, a nice change for Michigan. The weekend came and we decided to punch a few holes in the ice and see...

by Harry Urschel - Mar, 2010
Riding the roller coaster of emotions in a job search can be emotionally draining! Even the most even keeled personality can often feel like the ups and downs of a search are affecting the positive attitude they are trying to maintain in the process. Why? Obviously because a job search is so personal! Even professional sales people, who are used to handling frequent rejection in their jobs, are often deeply affected b...

The Seven Deadly Job Search Sins
by Louise Fletcher - Mar, 2010
If you’re looking for a job in this current climate, the bad news is that you have a lot of competition. The good news is that most of them have no idea what they’re doing. I meet a lot of job seekers during the course of my work as a professional resume writer. From executives to entry-level, I see the same mistakes over and over again.

Why It’s a Good Thing That Job Seeking Is Not an Olympic Sport and Some Inspiring Stories
by Miriam Salpeter - Mar, 2010
It’s tough not to be inspired by the Olympic athletes. I have been keeping a running list of topics that seem like perfect “career” messages for job seekers. Without fail, they are the type of messages that have to do with “keeping your head in the game,” “persevering despite all obstacles,” “overcoming significant challenges” and “fortitude, endurance and courage.” Have you considered how many athletes are at the Olympics...

by Harry Urschel - Feb, 2010
As a recruiter, I was just talking to a client, a Director at a mid-size company, about a couple of positions he’s trying to fill and specifics of what he wants to see in a good candidate. I wish many of the people in my job search classes could have listened in on the conversation because he clearly answered what many job seekers want to know...“What do hiring managers really want?” Certainly, in both of the open positi...
It’s The Little Things
by Dawn Bugni - Feb, 2010
Discouraged is a difficult place to live. We all visit occasionally, but wallowing in a cesspool of negativity doesn’t solve anything. And yes. I realize that leaving “discouraged” is a lot easier said than done.
