  Networking by the Boards
by John E. Kobara - Sep, 2012
When I was much younger, I got the good advice to get on a few boards--non-profit and for profit--advisory and fiduciary. I naively thought it was difficult to get on boards and further that it was some type of honor. Of course there are a select number of boards that are highly coveted, but the vast majority are accessible to the qualified and the connected. I also made the mistake of thinking that well known people wer...
 
  Sell Yourself
by John E. Kobara - Sep, 2012
I was on a career panel this week with Tim Harris Executive VP of the Lakers. We were presenting to a bunch of students at UCLA who want to know what they are going to do with their Sociology degrees. Tim and I were both Sociology majors. Sociology, like a lot of social science or liberal arts educations truly enables graduates to do whatever they want to do. And we discussed these virtues. These are hollow words to those...

  The Risk of Not Taking Risks
by John E. Kobara - Sep, 2012
How will I know when I can take a risk? This may be the most popular question I get. Some hear about my career path and some are hovering around a decision and they wonder---How will I know when to jump? How will I know if it is worth it? How will I know if I should take the chance? We are confronted with these decisions everyday and I assert almost every moment. Managing risk, choosing options, deciding not to say somet...
 
  Why I use the N word: NETWORKING
by John E. Kobara - Sep, 2012
Well intentioned people approach me and tell me that "networking" is so passe. It is an old school technique and phrase that really has not role in today's modern society. That I should be really talking about "relationship development" or "connecting" or using social media. And this is exactly why I have continued to use the term networking. :) Networking is a well worn word but it also still conjures up resistance. My view...

  Is it suspicious not to have an online profile?
by Miriam Salpeter - Sep, 2012
You value your privacy and are not one to jump on the social media bandwagon, so when someone Googles your name, they’ll find a White page’s listing and a link to Ancestry.com. You’re okay with that, but what does it mean for your job search? Is it true that if someone can’t find you among the 955 million monthly active users on Facebook that they should worry there might be something wrong with you? In our connected cultu...

  What to put on your resume
by Miriam Salpeter - Sep, 2012
You can design your resume to appear modern and appropriate for today’s job search, but it is equally important to include relevant content to appeal to the hiring manager. Most companies today are using a computerized system (known as an applicant tracking system, or ATS) to evaluate your materials; this means a human is not likely to see your resume unless you pass the initial, computerized scan. If you do not identify key w...
