  Is Everyone Instinctively Competitive?
by Julie Walraven - Jul, 2010
Meet Beau and Titan, the visiting Newfoundland puppies who come to be socialized with Teddy, our German Shepherd. Beau and Titan belong to Lee, a friend of my sons, and his dad. Titan is Lee’s and Beau is his dad’s puppy. At 10 weeks old, they compete to get the same toys. Even when I give them identical toys, they fight to get the one the other one has. Lee insists that Titan is the alpha male but I see Beau (red collar) s...
 
  Finding Your Targets With LinkedIn
by Harry Urschel - Jul, 2010
Anyone who’s been using LinkedIn for their job search for a while understands the great value it can be. It’s tremendous for creating a profile in order to be found, for finding contacts at companies you are pursuing, and for preparing for an interview by learning about your interviewer and others at the organization. However, people often miss another way LinkedIn can be used to help them greatly in pursuing their job sear...
 
  Improve Job Search Success - Add a Resume Objective Statement!
by Marcia Robinson - Jul, 2010
I just read a post on a new career blog where the writer proclaimed that resume objective statements are unnecessary. I don't agree! Of course I don't support resume objective statements that say nothing, but I know for sure that a resume objective is a good way to get the reader's attention. Isn't that your goal? Imagine you are in a busy HR office sifting through stacks of resumes from potential candidates for a posit...
 
  Twitter Users Are More Likely To Get Job Interviews
by Miriam Salpeter - Jul, 2010
Do you think of Twitter like this badge describes – as a pointless exercise? It may be time to rethink! Have you ever considered the skills you use to leverage Twitter well? It is not rocket science, but it does require key abilities, and not everyone has them. Sending tweets that inspire people to read, retweet and reply requires an ability to communicate in the short form. It turns out this may be much more valuable than...
 
  What Is The Best Way To Follow Up With A Job Lead?
by Miriam Salpeter - Jul, 2010
Sometimes, I receive questions via my contact form from people who are not interested in a quote for a resume transformation or coaching services. Some people just have a job search question and want an answer! Since I cannot respond to each inquiry individually, I decided to start answering some of the questions that are of general interest here. You are welcome to submit a question via my contact form, and please note that I...
 
  Unpaid Internships: Foot in the Door or Stepping on a Landmine?
by Barbara Safani - Jul, 2010
I was recently interviewed by CBS news about unpaid internships. There was a time when the only people who sought out unpaid internships were students who wanted to gain valuable work experience and were willing to forgo a salary to get it. But in today’s economy, more and more adults with long career histories are considering taking an unpaid internship as a way to get a foot in the door, transition into a new industry, learn...
 
  I’ve Got a LinkedIn Profile - Now What?
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Jul, 2010
If you’re currently searching for a job, Linkedin offers a free and easy way to create a presence for yourself online. While some people think of the site as simply another place to post their resumes, it offers many other career promotion tools as well. For example: Start a reading list LinkedIn is not a great place to advertise the trashy romance novel you read by the pool, but it does allow you to show professional...
 
  Presenting a Consistent Image During Your Job Search
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Jul, 2010
There’s an old adage in communication: “Tell the audience what you’re going to tell them, then tell them, and then tell them what you told them.” In other words, preview, present, and review. The objective of this communication strategy is to make sure your message gets across. While saying something five times may seem redundant to you, you can be sure that it will stick in the mind of your listener. The Preview: Your R...
 
  Thinking Like a Recruiter
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Jul, 2010
People often ask me why anyone would seek professional help with writing his or her resume. The great part about resume writing is that I often work with educated professionals who have years of great experience. Unfortunately, they just don’t know how to get their resumes in front of people with the power to give them a job. Generally, they’re too busy being a great nurse, project manager, executive, or whatever else to un...
 
  What To Do About An Employment Gap
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Jul, 2010
Historically, having a significant gap in your professional employment has been seen as a huge negative on a resume. However, given that a May Gallup poll showed that 19% of the American population is underemployed (either not working or working part-time instead of full-time), there are many, many job seekers out there wondering how to handle this resume issue. The good news is that there are ways to present gaps in employm...
