Not Much Experience? How New Grads Can Land A Job Anyhow
by Michelle Dumas - Jul, 2014
What came first, the chicken or the egg? It seems like a silly question, no? What if, however, we were to change it up a bit to, let’s say: What comes first, the job or job experience? Now it has resonance, doesn’t it? How can you land a job requiring experience if no one will hire you to acquire that experience? This is an issue that faces almost all job seekers at some point during their careers, especially new high...
Are You Fighting For Your Future?
by Bob Roth - Jul, 2014
Students frequently attend college with the stated intention of gaining the education and experience that will launch their careers in the field of their choice. These serious students recognize the role that a good education can play in their lives and tend to think about their “tomorrow” more than most. For most students, college is an exciting time of metamorphosis. It's a time when they expand their knowledge, pa...
Is it time to change my job?
by Julie Walraven - Jun, 2014
Many people mistakenly think that professional resume writers do better in a bad economy with high unemployment. Nothing could be further from the truth. Though I work with people who are unemployed and though I worked with both unemployed and those who want a career change throughout the recession that started in late 2007, it takes a good economy for professional resume writers to thrive. I’d like to discuss why you s...
Top 3 Reasons People Don’t Use Social Media for their Job Search
by Joshua Waldman - Jun, 2014
Inevitably, in every audience I speak to, there are people who find some reason NOT to follow my advice on using social media for their job search. Sometimes these people really want jobs but are overwhelmed. Sometimes they simply don’t want to get a job and change their situation. As long as you are willing to adopt NEW ways of doing things, NEW things will happen. To help you identify where your resistance may be...
How to Prepare Financially for a Career Change
by Louise Fletcher - Jun, 2014
Many people first start looking at a career change because they are hoping to make more money, but the reality is sometimes you’ll actually have to settle for making less money as you embark on your new career. This is because you will likely be starting out with a lot less experience than others in your field. This means it’s vital to do some financial planning plan if you’re thinking about a career change. Research wha...
Knowing When to Say NO!
by Caroline Dowd-Higgins - Jun, 2014
The hand goes up in the air and we can’t believe our ears as we hear ourselves, once again, saying “Sure, I’ll do it” – even though every fiber of our being is imploring us to “Just say no!” The ability to graciously decline, when it’s in our best interest, is key to maintaining a healthy work/life balance and a healthier life in general. Many of the women I’ve interviewed for my books, This Is Not The Career I Order...
How to Survive a Professional Panic Attack
by Michelle Kerrigan - Jun, 2014
Yesterday, I received an SOS message from a former colleague. She is in considerable distress: Her company is failing; the staff is shrinking; the survivors are exhausted; and she’s dying to jump ship. She is panicking, and needs my help. Her note began with her kicking herself for not doing anything sooner, and spiraled into many regrets about the past. She berated herself for pigeonholing herself into a specific career,...
Volunteers Wanted, Now!
by Rowe Leathers - Jun, 2014
Whenever I suggest volunteering as a way to gain experience in a new field, the typical response is, “Where?” To which I reply, “Everywhere!” Are you a history buff? Why not feed your passion by volunteering at museums or historical landmarks? If you are located in a region deeply rooted in history, and prefer a little more fun, consider taking part in reenactments. Historical reenactments are about as close as you will...
Got a Job Offer? Now What?
by Louise Garver - Jun, 2014
Congratulate yourself! You aced the interviews and just received a job offer. Now all you have to do is accept it. But wait – it’s not always that easy. Accepting an offer of a job is an important step in any executive’s career. You may encounter one or more of these scenarios: What if two companies offer you a job? It can be a difficult decision if you like both companies. It may be necessary to review the pros and cons of...
Getting A Job Today is Like a Mini MBA in Self-Promotion
by Mindy Thomas - Jun, 2014
When I read this yesterday in the WSJ, I thought . . . aaah yes. This is exactly what this job market is about. If you are not proactively working “it” (connecting to everyone you meet or know along this corridor of uncertainty), how can you possibly experience that serendipitous moment when the universe pulls it together to produce something extraordinary for you?
