  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,...
 
  Job-Clinching Interview Secrets and Tips
by Nimish Thakkar - Sep, 2010
The entire interview process is designed to sift the average from the extraordinary and to select the candidate who will be the “right fit”. To facilitate decision-making, hiring managers often leverage behavioral interviewing (an interview technique relying on past performance as an indicator of future success). Interview success is largely dependent on how the candidate delivers responses. Consider the following tips:...
 
  7 Surprising Reasons You Didn’t Get a Call Back for that Job
by Heather Huhman - Sep, 2010
It’s natural to wonder why you didn’t get an interview – or perhaps make it to the second round – for a job you thought was a perfect fit. While I always feel it’s best to ask the hiring manager what went wrong, do a little self-analysis first. Perhaps you made one of the following mistakes: 1. You didn’t follow-up, and someone else did. At every part of the job search process, it’s important to follow up with the hiring ma...
 
  Is Your Resume Ready for a Recruiter?
by Laura Smith-Proulx - Sep, 2010
Great news! You received a call out of the blue from a recruiter who wants to see your resume quickly. But what if you haven’t kept it current? First of all, consider asking for more time to pull things together. After all, the recruiter’s job is easier if your resume clearly tells the employer why you’re a strong candidate. Now, on to getting that resume in shape! Here are 3 tips to help you craft a compelling document—...
 
  Is My Personality Killing My Chances?
by Rob Taub - Sep, 2010
If you feel your enthusiasm and focus on being the best you can be, either in an interview or on the job, may be working against you, you may want to rein in your enthusiasm and moderate your intensity to some degree. Nevertheless, and more often than not, it is a matter of developing good communication sense. Is my personality killing my chances? "Communication skills" and "communication sense" are not the same. Good co...
 
  7 Overused and Worn-Out Phrases to Avoid on Your Resume
by Laura Smith-Proulx - Sep, 2010
If you’ve constantly looked at other resumes to get ideas, borrowing words here and there, you might find that employers are on to your game. Weary of reading the same phrases over and over again, hiring managers are starting to expect more from top candidates who want to stand out in the crowded job market. Here are 7 phrases that appear far too often on resumes, with recommendations on how to improve your wording for a s...
 
  How to Create a Powerful Leadership Resume by Quantifying Achievements
by Laura Smith-Proulx - Sep, 2010
Trying to tell employers the story of a long and successful executive career on your resume? Unfortunately, describing yourself as a seasoned, skilled, or experienced leader won’t cut it as much as showing the results of what you’ve done. Quantifying the results of your work, especially when it comes to the bottom line, will tell companies why they can count on you to produce similar gains for them, and will underscore your...
 
  Is Your Career Goal Realistic?
by Laura Smith-Proulx - Sep, 2010
If you’re not gaining the response you want from your job hunt, there can be several reasons: lack of hiring in your desired field, a watered-down resume that doesn’t represent your skills, shotgun job-search tactics like applying to every job you see, or an over-the-top, unrealistic goal for your next position. The latter situation can occur when you’re unsure how your skills tie into different rungs on the career ladder,...
 
  6 Common Sense Job Search Tips
by Lindsey Pollak - Sep, 2010
Last week’s post, “5 Simple But Brilliant Job Interview Strategies,” generated a lot of feedback, particularly from recruiters who told me how often job seekers make seemingly obvious mistakes such as spelling a recruiter’s name incorrectly. This reminded me of the fact that, as Voltaire famously said, “Common sense is not so common.” So today I wanted to share some additional seemingly simple career tips that many job seek...
 
  It’s 2010…Do You Know Where Your Digital Footprint Is?
by Barbara Safani - Sep, 2010
I’m headed out to Dallas to present a hands-on workshop on social media strategies for job seekers to my colleagues at this year’s National Resume Writers’ Association Conference. Resumes are an important marketing tool, but I believe that a resume is naked without a corresponding social media strategy. Over 90% of recruiters perform Internet searches on candidates before making a hiring decision, and more than half of empl...
