  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...
 
  Why I Won't Be Reading Your Cover Letter
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Jul, 2010
We recently had an open position we were trying to fill and I was amazed—or should I say appalled—at the blanket responses we received from job seekers. Potential candidates sent us cover letters describing experience they possessed that was completely irrelevant to our opening; it was the same as someone having a degree in veterinary medicine but seeking employment as an IT director. Did these job seekers really think that...
 
  Reflecting on Career Mentoring – 4th of July Raspberry Picking
by Julie Walraven - Jul, 2010
Yesterday, I picked raspberries at my father-in-law Bob’s house. The raspberries are early this year. In other years, the raspberries were at their peak during the week of the fair in early August. But spring came early and so did the raspberries. No ordinary raspberry patch Bob has no ordinary raspberry patch with just a few bushes. It feels like a jungle in there. I picked for over an hour, emptying my container severa...
 
  Four Job Search Frustrations - Fixed
by Kevin Donlin - Jun, 2010
I recently reviewed several hundred emails from job seekers across the country. As you might imagine, many things are bugging many job seekers in this economy. But I boiled their frustrations down to four common ones. Here they are, with suggested solutions. Which of them apply to you? Frustration #1: “I submit my resume for a posted job and never hear back from employers. Did they even read my resume?” Solut...
 
  You Won’t Hire Me Because I’m Unemployed? REALLY?
by Harry Urschel - Jun, 2010
CNN.com posted an article titled “In the job hunt, the stigma of being laid off is hard to erase”. In it, Stephanie Chen, writes: “As if securing work in a jobless recovery isn't tricky enough, being labeled unemployed brings additional obstacles.” I was privileged to be interviewed by Stephanie for this article and quoted briefly: “Many companies will consider hiring jobless applicants, said Harry Urschel, an indepen...
