by Barbara Safani - Feb, 2014
In celebration of their 10th birthday, I’m blogging about Facebook to show how much I appreciate its implications for career management and job search. Facebook often plays second fiddle to LinkedIn and many are unaware of its enormous potential for job search. Here are a few of the features I particularly like. Graph Search Graph Search allows you to search profiles based on information that may be important to your...
Losing Momentum? Get Someone in Your Corner. | Encouragement Power
by Dawn Lennon - Feb, 2014
Nothing beats a good streak. Things fall into place with ease. Good stuff gets done. Our confidence rises. Our skills deliver. Optimism soars. We’re on a roll. You know what they say about streaks? They’re made to be broken. Few teams win all their games and few, if any of us, win every round as our careers unfold. The first time we get knocked down, we dig deep and get back up, ready to try again. Get knocked down ag...

The number one question an unemployed executive will be asked in an interview is “What have you been doing while unemployed?” Companies want to hire executives who have up-to-date skills and are current in their industry.

When Do You Do Your Best Work?
by Jason Alba - Feb, 2014
I do my best writing in the morning. I like to get at least one blog post cranked out early… if I do it in the morning I think the quality of the post is better. I have less distractions then, than later. I have come to cherish the mornings as a time to get my best and most important work done. About a year ago I realized there was other important stuff I needed to do, which typically took too long to do. I was sav...
Who’s Viewed Your Profile… stalkers?
by Jason Alba - Feb, 2014
As I work on the fourth edition of my LinkedIn for Job Seekers DVD I said something that made me think a bit. It had to do with the “who has viewed your profile” section, which will show you nothing unless you upgrade. For many years I’ve felt that this is another way that LinkedIn gets people to upgrade.
