Telephone etiquette for your job search
by Miriam Salpeter - Apr, 2011

Me: Okay. (Waiting…thinking — why...

The Citgo Sign
by Suzanne Bates - Apr, 2011
Years ago when I moved to Boston I lived in a lovely old apartment in the Back Bay overlooking the Charles River- a stunning part of the city - safe, walkable and within striking distance of chic boutiques (which at the time I couldn’t afford but window shopping was fun). Two drawbacks to living there - you pay nearly the equivalent of rent to lease a cramped alley parking spot often half a mile away, and there isn’t a gas s...

Jobseeker, Are You Crazy?
by Rosa Elizabeth Vargas - Apr, 2011
I have said it many times before and I will say it, here, again…you have to be willing to stand apart from the job search mob by daring to break the norm and differentiate yourself. Try the new, the fresh—take a chance. Will someone think a resume without an Objective is just crazy? Maybe. Will your friends advise you against a personal branding statement on your resume because that is just not done? Perhaps. If you call a com...

Eight Tactics to Reboot Your Resume
by Wendy Enelow - Apr, 2011
You are what your write. I recently did a search on resume tips on a popular search engine that starts with a “G” and to no surprise found more than 37 million pages dedicated to some form of tips for resumes. Everyone has an opinion and I am no different. As I coach though, I have seen literally hundreds of resumes and have come to consensus about their content. Resumes that paint a picture of a personality and tell a sto...
Is It Too Soon to Think about Work/Life Balance?
by Lindsey Pollak - Apr, 2011
One of my biggest surprises when I first started speaking about career issues on college campuses was the number of students who asked me questions about work/life balance. College women (and more than a few men) as early as their freshman year were asking me about how to build a career that would enable them to have flexibility for child rearing, service projects, travel or other pursuits. When I started my own career in th...
