So, Tell Me About Your Weaknesses
by Dan King - Oct, 2010
In a calm, confident manner, Sam replied, "My biggest weakness is that I can become impatient with people who don't set standards as high as mine." Huh? I should have let it go, but it was late in the day and I was already on my sixth interview. Pretending to be puzzled, I looked Sam in the eye and asked, "Are you saying that your biggest weakness is your impatience? Or is it that you set unrealistic standards. He gla...

8 Thoughts That Are Really Bad for Your Career Development
by Thomas J. Denham - Oct, 2010
The #1 barrier to achieving career success is you. You are standing way of your own success with negative distortions. I am often my clients’ best cheerleader, while they act as their own worst enemy beating themselves up with criticism, self-doubt and worry. I listen patiently and hear them offer up their dominant thoughts from the dark side. Thoughts come and go so frequently that we rarely think about how they impact...

by Harry Urschel - Oct, 2010
When networking, following up on an application, reconnecting after an interview, or for virtually any other aspect of a job search… talking to someone is always better than an email. A professional voice on the phone is much harder to ignore than one of dozens of emails. However, for most people, the majority of calls you make will initially result in leaving a voicemail than actually being able to catch someone on the...

by Sherri Edwards - Oct, 2010
1. Know the organization. First of all, if you are only applying to posted roles on Craigslist or Indeed without researching companies ahead of time to be better aware of what is a fit for you, then you have put yourself at a disadvantage. It means you have to act quickly to get attention (within 24 hours), and, you have little time to get in touch with people to learn more before a call from the employer is expected. To...

Why No one is Calling You Back (and What to do About It)
by Louise Fletcher - Sep, 2010
The most common complaint I hear from job seekers is this: “I’m sending tons of resumes out and no one is calling me back.” I know how frustrating this can be from personal experience. I’ve been there myself back before I had my own business. You see the perfect vacancy – you just know you have all the right skills for it – and you are sure they will call you as soon as they see your resume. So when the phone doesn’t ring,...
