From Mired to Hired: Another Guerrilla Job Search Success
by Kevin Donlin - Mar, 2010
You might think there’s never been a worse time to look for work in the traditional job market, with unemployment at 10.4% and no relief in sight. But you would be only half right. While there’s never been a worse time for traditional job-search methods, “Guerrilla” job hunters are enjoying consistent success -- even in today’s awful economy. Why? Because Guerrillas choose not to participate in the recession. T...
What You Don’t Know About The Job Hunt Will Hurt You
by Miriam Salpeter - Mar, 2010
As you might imagine, I receive a lot of inquiries from blog readers about my services for job seekers. Sometimes, the communication between us reminds me of just how much help some job seekers need. Recently, a very savvy, high-level professional with a stellar work history contacted me asking for help with her resume and with moving to a digital format. I replied, delighted to hear from someone who was asking me about a d...
Finding Your Place in the Green Economy
by Barbara Safani - Mar, 2010
I bet many of you out there are wearing green today in honor of St. Patrick’s Day. I decided to do something different this year and blog green instead. I’ve been a big fan of Carol McClelland’s Green Career Central site for over a year and I was thrilled to hear that she recently published a book on the topic of green careers called Green Careers for Dummies. She stopped by the Career Solvers blog to give readers the insider ...
Who is Hiring and How to Land the JOB
by Robin Ryan - Mar, 2010
Guess WHO is Hiring 10,000 new employees a month? Did you say the US government? That is correct. Kate one of my career counseling clients, is a 50-year old Marketing Communications professional. I told her the federal government was a good job prospect for her. She had not even considered the feds as an employer since she assumed for her the salary would be too low. She was wrong. Right now our federal government is add...

by Tai Goodwin - Mar, 2010
If you’ve reached the 10-year mark in your career, you may be at a crossroad as you decide the next best move to further your career. For many people, it would appear that taking a management position is the only way to reach the next level. However, the perks of being a manager don’t always outweigh the drawbacks of moving into a management position – especially if you have invested time and money in developing more functiona...
Too Old To Get Hired?
by Harry Urschel - Mar, 2010
One comment I hear often from people over 50 is that it’s very tough for them to get a new job because of their age. When they aren’t getting a new job in the timeframe they hoped, the assumption is that some form of age discrimination is taking place. That kind of thinking is reinforced by ads for “Just For Men” hair coloring, news stories I’ve seen of people getting plastic surgery to look younger for job interviews, o...
Are You Getting The REALLY Important Things Done?
by Andy Robinson - Mar, 2010
One of the very common themes I come across when coaching my clients is the challenge of staying focused on the IMPORTANT at work. With so many "balls in the air" these days, the "magnetism" of the constant email "bell," the drop-bys in your office, the ringing telephone and the many distractions common to all of us, most busy professionals have a very hard time focusing their efforts on the things that are truly most importa...
by Nan S. Russell - Mar, 2010
The cyclical and now ubiquitously appearing phrase, back to basics, ignites supporters. The reasonableness of returning to previously successful principles, ethics, systems, accountability, approaches, or you-name-it, appears a tantalizing remedy for our individual or collective woes. Who can argue with the refocusing trend of business to trim waste or reconnect with customers, or an expert's approach to help income-starve...
Learn From Ben Franklin - His Tips Are Timeless

Benjamin Franklin had only two years of formal schooling, but he educated himself to become a leading American thinker, an extraordinary innovator and a major Enlightenment figure.
