End Your Day With These Questions
by Andy Robinson - Jul, 2011
Finding a few minutes at the end of the day to reflect back ON your day is an excellent habit. Many times I'll journal those reflections, particularly if something substantive surfaces as a result of the reflection process. During my reflection time, I ask the following questions and answer them to myself: •What NEW THING did I learn today? What action can I take on that learning point? •Did I do a good job today of LIS...
Getting More Face Time for Your Job Search on Facebook
by Barbara Safani - Jul, 2011
Getting face time with networking contacts and hiring authorities just got easier. Facebook recently announced the launch of Skype-powered video chat and I’m predicting that this will be a huge boon to job seekers and hiring managers alike. Facebook claims collective usage of over 700 billion minutes per month and more than 700 million users and this presents a goldmine of opportunity for job seekers. With the new video cha...
Nurture Your Network
by Sherri Edwards - Jul, 2011
Networking is an active process. It requires engagement, follow through and follow up. With all of the technology in the world, it still requires time for planning, thinking and responding. If I had the talent, I would draw a picture of this example, but since words are my medium, this analogy will have to be represented without visuals. Imagine researching the web or purchasing books about putting in a lawn. You can learn...
Business Behavior 101
by Bob Roth - Jul, 2011
When recent college graduates and other applicants start a new job, they can feel like a fish out of water. That?s because they are unfamiliar with the people in the company, the company culture, company values, expectations, rituals and the acceptable behavior. However, new employees are almost always better off when they can quickly fit into the new work environment. With that in mind, there are seven areas that new emplo...
How can your past inform your career future?
by Miriam Salpeter - Jul, 2011
I attended the National Career Development Association (NCDA) conference last week, and I wanted to share some information from one of the keynote speakers, Mark Guterman. He spoke about the importance of memory when focusing on future career decisions in his discussion, “In Remembrance Lies the Secret . . . .” He shared some great quotes: “Memory is the soul’s witness to the capricious mind.” – Heschel “If you’re luc...
How to Make a Career Change
by Thomas J. Denham - Jul, 2011
My clients struggle with making a career change because they think it’s done in one big leap. The fact is it does not happen overnight, so don’t do it cold turkey. Reinventing yourself will likely take a year or more. Take these incremental steps to make the transition. 1. Evaluate the Situation – Where am I now?

Michelle Obama’s take on finding your dream job
by Hallie Crawford - Jul, 2011
I really liked this quote from Michelle Obama’s commencement speech at Northern Iowa University. It reminds me of something I often tell my clients. The path won’t always be laid out neatly for you. Sometimes you won’t be able to find that perfect job. Sometimes you might momentarily take a job just to stay afloat. – Michelle Obama This could not be any truer. Just like life, your career path isn’t going to always be su...
Tips to consider when evaluating your LinkedIn network
by Miriam Salpeter - Jul, 2011
What’s the most important thing to consider when building your network? Size? Quality of connections? Other factors? LinkedIn published a study that said men are better online networkers than women because they tend to have a greater ratio of connections compared to women.

by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Jul, 2011
Are you applying for different positions that all seem to be exactly the same, encouraging you to submit nearly the same resume over and over again? It may be tempting, but don’t do it! You may think you can get away with submitting carbon-copy resumes, but employers can smell them a mile away. If you are applying for very similar jobs within the same industry but among different companies and need to find ways to customi...
