  5 Simple But Brilliant Job Interview Strategies
by Lindsey Pollak - Sep, 2010
In a recent blog post I outlined some of the biggest job seeker mistakes to avoid, based on my own experience hiring a paid intern. Today, I’ll share some simple but impactful tactics you should employ to help you land the job you want. 1. Spell the recruiter or hiring manager’s name right. Of the emails I received responding to the position I posted, about half (!) spelled my name wrong. To me, that was an instant sign th...

Over the last few months you may have gone back and forth, thinking and rethinking, questioning if you should just stick it out or is now the time for you to get your resume updated in plans for finding a new home for your talent.

  College: Time To Grow Up
by Bob Roth - Sep, 2010
When students enter college, they will begin to face a long list of challenges. Whether they are ready or not, every student will be expected to have the maturity to act responsibly, do their best work and make good choices. This is a time when students begin to operate on their own and take full responsibility for their decisions, words, behavior and results. Students who finance their own way through college, usually...
 
  Over 50? Tricks to Land a Better Job
by Robin Ryan - Sep, 2010
You read so much bad news about anyone who's a mature worker that you might think your best years are behind you if you are over 50 - WRONG! I've recently worked with several career counseling clients who are past 49 and each has had a BIG career success. Hope - and self confidence, plus some savvy know-how - seems to be the key. Wendell is a programmer in his mid 50s - a tough job title to maintain on a permanent ba...
 
  Top Five Career Mistakes
by Nimish Thakkar - Sep, 2010
Held, guilty of career stagnation -- of course, no one is ever going to pass that sentence on you, but by ineffectively managing your career, you could easily find yourself making the same career mistakes most individuals make. 1. Randomly pursuing jobs Apparently, even the greatest of strategists do not have a clear plan when it comes to their own careers. Most, just accept jobs or opportunities that come their way, wit...
 
  Why finding a recruiter won't automatically end your job search
by Laura Smith-Proulx - Sep, 2010
I was recently asked by a prospective client if I "knew" any recruiters. Well, I do maintain strong relationships with recruiters in various fields, but there seemed to be a disconnect in the question. You see, finding a recruiter is only part of the effort you'll need to undertake in order to be successful. Recruiters find candidates, not jobs. Let me repeat that again - a recruiter will NOT set out to find you a job. T...
 
  How to Get Inside the Mind of an Employer
by Kevin Donlin - Sep, 2010
There's an old marketing maxim I live by when advising job seekers. It dates back to the 1930s and comes from Robert Collier, one of the best writers of sales letters who ever lived. It goes like this: To create successful advertising, the writer must enter the conversation already going on in mind of the reader. Because everybody is thinking about something. If you can tap into a person’s thoughts with your mess...
 
  Resume Writing Strategies from a Career Coach’s Secret Toolkit
by Nimish Thakkar - Sep, 2010
Ever wonder how career coaches and resume writers transform ordinary resumes into attention-grabbing documents? As career professionals, we use a variety of strategies to position job seekers and add the much-needed “punch” to their resumes. 1. Address employer needs; speak their language Employers look for solutions, not people. When a company publicizes an opening, it is advertising a need, a gap within its system. In...
 
  Tips for Writing a Persuasive Cover Letter
by Nimish Thakkar - Sep, 2010
Much has been said about creating a perfect resume, but job seekers pay very little attention to the document that precedes it: the cover letter. A well-crafted cover letter can not only deliver a solid first impression, it can actually influence the hiring manager even before the resume is reviewed. In my professional practice, I often come across cover letters that resemble cookie-cutter templates. Generic letters can be...
 
  Students Must Prove That They Should Be Hired
by Bob Roth - Sep, 2010
As students go through college, they should be aware of one important fact. Employers expect college students to “prove” that they should be hired. Wise students keep this fact in mind and make certain that they can provide the proof that employers seek. Employers are interested in five things: 1. What You Know - It should be obvious that employers will want to find out what students know. Grades are only...
