I’ve had the privilege of chatting with a lot of students and recent grads on the book tour, and one of the questions I often get asked is: How can I make myself stand out when a lot of other applicants have more education and professional experience? I always start by saying “breathe.” Then, I usually recommend the following: 1. Request informational interviews with leaders in your target companies BEFORE they post jobs yo...

In an effort to showcase your strengths and highlight your inner work-a-holic, consider us...
 
  Does Your Brand Really Communicate What You Think It Does?
by Alexia Vernon - Dec, 2010
Although we like to think that we are pretty good at identifying how others see us, most of us can still use a studio audience from time-to-time to test out our assumptions. I received a clear reminder of this in one of my recent workshops. When sharing her WOW Factor–the 3 most significant and positive qualities about herself–a participant mentioned something that really didn’t ring true for me in the couple of hours I had sp...
 
  Facebook and Your Career
by Rosa Elizabeth Vargas - Dec, 2010
Excuse me. Come again? Are you kidding? What is the first thing you do when you want more information about ANY topic? About a celebrity? About a dream vacation? The weather? You Google it. That's right. I know you do. You Google it. What makes you think you are un-googleble? Simply put, Facebook can affect your online brand, your digital reputation, your corporate identity, and ultimately your employability. The most impo...

  Five Résumé Screw Ups You Might Be Making
by Debra Wheatman - Dec, 2010
Let’s face it. When it comes to writing résumés there are a lot of different opinions on the best format, style, and method. Even among certified professional résumé writers, there are a variety of approaches that can be taken. If you have gone the route of doing your résumé alone, or even if you have had a writer prepare your résumé, it is important to check twice to avoid these common screw-ups. 1. Are you a Manager or...
 
  Four Cover Letter Secrets That Will Open Doors
by Debra Wheatman - Dec, 2010
Sending a résumé without a cover letter is like driving at night without your lights on. (You know, you will get a ticket for that!) So what are the dynamics of an effective cover letter? How can you determine the major points and entice recruiters and hiring managers to take a closer look? The Salutation: If you know the hiring manager’s name, use it; this is always preferable than the all too common: “To whom it may conce...
 
  Give Your Career a 360
by Alexia Vernon - Dec, 2010
I’m a big fan of individual and organizational feedback–that which comes from others as well as the self-directed, self-reflective kind. When we give ourselves opportunities to take stock we get clearer on what is working (so we can do more of it) as well as that which isn’t working (so that we can self-correct and do less of it). We also stay connected to our personal power. It’s just so darn easy to believe that we are puppe...

by Rosa Elizabeth Vargas - Dec, 2010
This is one of the questions that is posed to me again and again…and it is a good question! Here is the answer: IT DEPENDS. I know. You would like a clear-cut answer. But the reality is that when you set out to prepare a favorable candidacy via your resume you will use discernment and scrutinize your resume line-by-line, outweighing, repositioning, questioning, and editing so you influence and gain an interview. The fo...
 
  It’s Quality, Not Just Quantity that Gets You Hired
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Dec, 2010
Over the last few years, I’ve heard a lot of very intelligent job seekers casually remark they had sent out hundreds of resumes while looking for a job. These people firmly believed job searching was entirely a numbers game, so the more resumes they sent out, the more likely they were to be hired. Unfortunately, these job seekers were flawed in their thinking—and were generally not getting any hits from their resumes. While...
