Similarly Situated - What Does It Mean and Why is it Important?
by Sandra Zeigler, Esq. - Mar, 2014
The determination of who is similarly situated is central to the prosecution and defense of a discrimination case. This is because determining whether discrimination actually occurred is a comparative exercise. Whether in self-audits or in the defense of allegations of discrimination, it is important for contractors to understand how to identify who is similarly situated to whom for purposes of equal opportunity analysis....

First, let’s have a “crash cou...
Should I Put a Local Address on My Resume?
by Rich Jones - Mar, 2014
I just had a conversation with someone around this very question. As a recruiter, I can tell you that we do look at where someone is located when reviewing his or her resume. Some of us will even screen you out if you’re too far away and we don’t offer relocation (I’ve done it). And it’s that fear of being screened out that leads some folks to put the local address of a friend or family member. I completely get it. However, yo...
Your Interview Questions List: How to Use This Powerful Tool!
by Thea Kelley - Mar, 2014
If you're looking for a new job, one "must-have" tool is a long list of interview questions – and the right techniques for using that list to prepare. First, compile a really good list. Anticipate any likely questions that may be prompted by your resume, LinkedIn profile or other materials the interviewer may have seen. Expect to be asked why you left each job (especially any that were short-term), what you were doing...
Earning Your Marketing Stripes: It’s All About Relationships
by Brian Muys - Mar, 2014
In too many organizations, marketing and public relations are often considered more tactical functions that simply support larger business initiatives. In some instances, higher-cost promotional channels can all too easily be relegated to a secondary, discretionary role, especially during periods of economic uncertainty. First, this means that any given marketing program, however ambitious, must be directly aligned with or...
The Yin and Yang of the Job Interview
by Thea Kelley - Mar, 2014
Interview authentically and strategically. These are the "yin and yang" of good interviewing. Actually, these aren't truly opposites. The real opposite of strategy is randomness, or carelessness, which sometimes comes wrapped in the flag of "just being real." Many job candidates fail to be strategic. They interview in an honest and straightforward way, but without really communicating a unique selling proposition. Th...
Work-Arounds for Impossible Interview Questions
by Thea Kelley - Mar, 2014
What do you do when you can't exactly answer the question that's been asked you in an interview? Sometimes you need to reframe the question, to look at it in a less obvious way. In other words, you come up with an effective work-around - like those clever ones that get you past various roadblocks in your day-to-day work! Let's say an interviewer asks you this: Tell me about a time when you had to work with someone...
Job Search: Make Professional Etiquette a Habit
by Kris Plantrich - Mar, 2014
I am finding often, and not just with recent graduates, that follow up, and phone and email etiquette is sorely lacking with many professionals today. It is a lack of professionalism and courtesy when communications such as following up, thanking others, and scheduling confirmations, cancellations or delays, are not kept a priority. With younger clients I try and remind them that it is good practice to get into the ha...
I'm introducing you, not endorsing you
by Stacey Lane - Mar, 2014
I blogged about awkward LinkedIn invitations and it was my most shared blog post ever. Wonder if it has anything to do with the Kelly Blazek fiasco that happened around that same time? You know, the Cincinnati-based, self-professed mentor who wrote a scathing response to a LinkedIn request. Epic fail in the career karma department for Kelly. Ouch. Seems like there are a lot of conversations happening around networking...
5 Must-Read Resume Writing Tips
by Patricia Erickson - Mar, 2014
Is the thought of writing a resume as pleasant as having your wisdom teeth surgically extracted? I ask because I was discussing resume writing tips with a client today and she was thrilled I was going to write it for her. As she put it, she was no longer actively involved in the “whole torturous process.” I didn’t realize the experience could be so terrible – but then I thought about doing my own taxes and realized what she...
