  The #1 Way to Be a Great Employee
by Lindsey Pollak - Jul, 2011
In one of the first jobs of my career, I had a very hands-on, micromanaging boss. She frequently double- and triple-checked that I had completed even the smallest tasks. Not surprisingly, it kind of drove me crazy. Looking back, though, I consider that job to be one of my best learning experiences in professionalism, attention to detail and—most importantly—the art of “managing up.” When people talk about management, the...
 
  How a New Grad Cut His Job Search Time in Half Using Twitter
by Joan Runnheim Olson - Jul, 2011
How long is the job search? 27 weeks, says the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS)! Is there a shortcut? One jobseeker found it ... in the form of Twitter. Stephen Moyer, one of the 13 jobseekers featured in The Twitter Job Search Guide (JIST, 2010) authored by Chandlee Bryan (@chandlee), Deb Dib (@CEOCoach), and myself (@SusanWhitcomb), is a stellar case study on how Twitter can work wonders in a job search. As Chandlee li...
 
  How LinkedIn Resume Builder Can Ruin Your Job Search
by Louise Fletcher - Jul, 2011
I’m a big fan of LinkedIn and encourage all my clients to use it actively. I’m even writing a guide on how to make the most of it as a job search tool. But not everything LinkedIn does is a good idea and the Resume Builder tool is a perfect example of this. It sounds great in theory – create a LinkedIn profile and then transform it into a resume at the click of a button with no extra work. Who wouldn’t want that? Here’s...
 
  If You’re Not Going to be Genuine, Don’t Bother
by Louise Fletcher - Jul, 2011
Not long ago, I was invited to join a brand new business social networking site. Because I like the person who sent the invite, I clicked ‘yes’ and signed up. But having looked around, I decided it was much too early stage to spend time on. For the last 3 days, I’ve received an email from the site founder. The first one thanked me for signing up and made reference to the fact I’m a resume writer. I thought that was a nice t...
 
  The key to successful career change
by Hallie Crawford - Jul, 2011
As a certified career coach, I have worked with hundreds of clients on identifying and realizing their dream jobs. Throughout this work, I have noticed that one consistent theme separates clients who are successful in their goals, versus those that continuously struggle. The defining factor is commitment. I have seen this play out time and time again. A client who comes to career coaching completely confused and miserab...
 
  The One Rule of Resume Writing You Can’t Afford to Ignore
by Louise Fletcher - Jul, 2011
Just lately, I’ve read a rash of articles claiming to reveal the hard and fast rules of resume writing. They have titles like “5 rules of a great resume” or “10 words you must never use on your resume.” Maybe you’ve read some of these articles. Maybe you’ve even made changes to your resume after finding out that the word “innovative” is now forbidden and must be replaced, or that using the phrase “self-motivated” is akin t...
 
  Why You Don’t Have to Explain Everything on your Resume
by Louise Fletcher - Jul, 2011
One of the most common mistakes people make when writing a resume is to try and explain everything. Every detail, every situation, every technology used, every job held no matter how short – everything. But this is a mistake. The job of your resume is not to tell the clearest story of what happened – it’s to show your experience in the best light. The Spotlight Analogy Imagine watching a play at the theater. At certain...
