Moving Up In Your Company? YOU Need A Resume, Too!
by Cathy Eng - Jun, 2012
I have written resumes for many clients who were not moving companies and some who weren’t even moving departments – they were simply asked to present an updated resume to apply for a higher-tiered position within their company. The funny thing is they were surprised that they would even need a resume for the same company that hired them years earlier. If you are thinking of applying for a higher position in your company,...
My Physical Response to Job Loss
by Norine Dagliano - Jun, 2012
Losing a job is quite an emotional experience – looking for your next opportunity leans more toward the cerebral. Until you can come to terms with the first, it is difficult to tackle the latter. I recall my last job loss more than 10 years ago as if it were yesterday. I have always had the reputation of being the logical, analytical one that doesn’t get sidetracked by the emotional aspects of life. There is some truth in...
Should I Include X in My Resume?
by Louise Fletcher - Jun, 2012
This is one of the most common questions I’m asked by my clients. I write resumes designed to appeal to a specific target audience, and this means I often omit facts and information that I know won’t impress that target audience. And that can sometimes be hard to swallow. After all, if you see a first draft of your resume that omits key facts, it’s natural to ask “but shouldn’t X be included?” You worked hard for that achi...

Ultimate (Resume) Writing Tip: How to Write For Your Audience
by Cathy Eng - Jun, 2012
Whether you are writing a book, article, thesis, letter, or a resume, the same basic rule applies: Write for your audience (in this case, recruiters, hiring managers and your future boss). In the world of resume writing, that translates to two things. First, make your resume easy to read for everyone. If it is sloppy, crowded, disjointed, confusing, or overly advanced (e.g. using uncommon acronyms without spelling out thei...
When Is The Best Time To Contact HR?
by Cathy Eng - Jun, 2012
Many job seekers focus solely on the “how” of contacting potential employers, but the “when” can be crucial to getting noticed as well. Contacting them when they are more likely to be alert and responsive (and not tired, hungry, or stressed) is all about timing. That includes planning the optimal time and day to contact HR (to either initiate contact, follow up after sending a resume, or follow up post-interview). Accordin...
Job Seekers: Help Yourself and HR in Your Job Search!
by Randy Block - Jun, 2012
Are you sending out resumes answering advertisements on company websites? Did someone tell you that you could upset and turn-off Human Resources if you bypass them? You have been “good” by following the “rules”. You said to yourself, “I’m perfect for the job.” You wait. It’s now weeks later and you’ve received no reply: “How can they miss my great background? If I could just get to the manager…” Here’s an important...
Helping To Encourage a Career Identity in the Young
by Betty Cohen - Jun, 2012
As an experienced career practitioner who has partnered with many young to older adults to help them identify satisfying career goals, one complaint I often hear from clients is “Why can’t I be like most people, who know early on what they want to be when they grow up?” My response is “Actually, you’re not in the minority, in terms of career decision making. While some people do follow a career pathway they determined at a ve...
Executives: Rebuild your network BEFORE you need it
by Louise Garver - Jun, 2012
When executives land a new job and are out of the job search cycle, often they drop the active networking that helped get them that new job. While LinkedIn, Facebook and other business networks offer some ongoing online connections, they don’t provide the personal touch that is necessary to maintain a network. You never know when you will need to reach out to those connections again. Often people feel awkward reconnecting...
How Introverts and Extroverts Work in Teams
by Dr. Maynard Brusman - Jun, 2012
Teamwork demands shared responsibility, but it also demands individual contributions. It fails if team members shelter behind the consensus. ~ Robert Heller, Founding Editor, Management Today I recently spoke with a director of human resources who was searching for a San Francisco executive coach for the executive team at her company. The director of human resources asked some very insightful questions to determine whether...
