by Sandra M. Smith - Jan, 2015
If you’ve been a professional in your field for a while, you have more than likely come into contact with many different recruiters over the years.

If this has happened to you, you may have resolved to cut off all ties with recruiters for fear...

Size Does Matter
by Sherri Edwards - Jan, 2015
Titles don’t necessarily reflect the same level of responsibility, nor do they mean the same thing across industries. The context of the positions you have held does/should make a difference to someone who is determining if you are a fit or not. More experience in one area doesn’t necessarily make up for a shortcoming in another. The following considerations need to be taken into account when filling a role, from the candidate...

The Christmas cookie platter and job search strategy
by Dawn Bugni - Dec, 2014
Fudge, Mexican Wedding Cakes, Scotcharoos, and Melt Aways. I decided to make Christmas treats this year. Those close to me know a voluntary venture into the kitchen is rare. The hubs plans meals and is chef extraordinaire at our house. I’ve not changed to a baking blog. I promise. This comes back around to job search.

by Rowe Leathers - Dec, 2014
One of the most important components in a job search is the interview follow up; yet it is one of the most overlooked and uncertain parts of the process. While many job seekers recognize this to be a critical step, many fear it because they don’t know what to say or, worse, don’t want to be a nuisance. To conquer your fear of making that call, consider shifting the way you think about it. If you view your follow-up call as...
Resumes vs. Personal Introductions
by Georgia Adamson - Dec, 2014
As a professional resume writer, I have to acknowledge up front that I have a bit of bias on the subject of resumes–especially when I read (as I usually do) a column by Ask The Headhunter’s Nick Corcodillos, who basically considers resumes most suitable as garbage-can liners! In a recent post, titled “The Magic Resume Calculator: Save 95% of your job hunting time!,” Corcodillos does, however, make good points that I can agr...

by Robin Schlinger - Dec, 2014
Headlines are important in a resume because they guide hiring managers, recruiters, and electronic tracking systems (ATS) to important information (“Professional Work Experience,” “Education”) and because they help you organize your resume logically. There are four basic resume headlines, but some resumes may require more or less. The first resume headline is the one used for your name and contact information; this always...
Don’t Pick a Boss, Pick a Job
by Bernie Frazier - Dec, 2014
I recently read an article entitled, “Don’t Pick a Job. Pick a Boss.” While the article made some valid points, I want to offer a different perspective. After spending 25 years in Corporate America and having 17 direct supervisors, I can truly appreciate any person’s desire to have a great boss. As the article stated, great bosses facilitate learning, welcome ideas from employees, believe in their employees and more. J...
