  Networking Strategies for the Career Changer
by Heather Mundell - Oct, 2012
My client, Megan, is in her late 40s and wants to change careers. The jobs Megan is considering to target are not easily found online. She's unsure of what are the most common job titles that are most relevant for her to pursue and how to tap into job openings (or whether there even are job openings). I've said this before: changing careers is not for the faint of heart or the person who's in a big rush! Megan, however, is m...
 
  Tired of looking for a job? 5 tips to prepare to start your own business
by Miriam Salpeter - Oct, 2012
Are you dissatisfied with your job, or reading the writing on the wall that suggests it may be time to think of your own exit strategy? If so, you are in good company. A Mercer’s What’s Working™ survey last year, conducted over two quarters, included 2,400 workers in the U.S. They found, “nearly one in three (32%) U.S. workers is seriously considering leaving his or her organization at the present time, up sharply from 23% in...
 
  Ask the Career Coach: "How Exactly Do I Set up an Informational Interview?"
by Heather Mundell - Oct, 2012
Informational interviews aren't just for college students and recent grads - they're still a fantastic way to research a field or a company. As long as you are just meeting to get information and aren't asking for a job, people are usually willing to say yes to a request if their schedule permits. Here are my tips for setting up an informational interview: Send an email or call them In many industries, voice mail i...
 
  Finding Happiness at Work
by Heather Mundell - Oct, 2012
Happiness at Work For many people out there participating in the daily grind, work is not something that makes them happy. As a matter of fact, getting out of work is probably the highlight of their day. While this may be the case for a larger than normal segment of the population, there is a way to find happiness at work—if you are willing to look for it. If not, maybe it’s time you started looking for something you might...
 
  Is It Your Boss That's Bad, or Are You Just Hard to Get Along With?
by Heather Mundell - Oct, 2012
In my former life, I was an HR director. HR folks can be a cautious, cynical bunch. Reason #1 - they are the legal front line when things go south with employees. Reason #2 - they've seen a lot of bizarre and bad behavior at work (and they're called in to help deal with it). I inadvertently had my HR hat on when I read What to Do If Your Boss Is the Problem on the Wall Street Journal online. It's a good article with...
 
  What to Do When You're Overwhelmed by Too Many Career Ideas
by Heather Mundell - Oct, 2012
Many of the people who hire me as their coach aren't struggling with a lack of career options. Rather they are stuck because they have too many ideas and don't know where to start to narrow them down. This reminds me of a story a friend of mine told me who moved from the U.S. to New Zealand for a year. She lived in a town in New Zealand where the local store had four kinds of cereal, two kinds of soap, one kind of lettuce -...
 
  A Qwiki To Spice Up Your Job Search?
by Michelle Dumas - Oct, 2012
The number of people using some form of social media, no matter how frequently, is ever-increasing, both because the internet has become more portable (smartphones, tablets, other PDAs) but also because there seem to be newer and glitzier social networking sites (SNS) introduced on a regular basis. For those involved in an active job search, the use of SNS has become part and parcel of their efforts. If you don’t have a com...
 
  How to Succeed as a Freelancer
by Miriam Salpeter - Oct, 2012
Temporary and contingent workers are on the rise. The independent workforce has grown to 16.9 million from 16 million in the past year, according to research by MBO Partners, which provides business services to consultants. As companies realize that they can hire contractors for certain services instead of paying for full-time workers, more people will find themselves becoming freelancers, either by choice or by necessity....

  Simple Ways To Make It Easy For Recruiters To Find You Online
by Michelle Dumas - Oct, 2012
In these difficult economic times, seeking a job or a job change is perhaps more challenging than ever. There are more qualified candidates than available jobs, meaning that recruiters have deep talent pools from which to choose applicants they can confidently forward to their clientele. If you are someone looking to modify your current career circumstances, how can you attract the attention of those recruiters active in yo...
