  Is Embellishing Your Resume Part of the Job Search Game?
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Nov, 2013
I was in a radio interview with the Local Job Network team this week discussing the perfect balance of a resume—and not overselling or understating yourself. And this question came up: It’s often perceived that embellishing one’s skills or experience is a part of the “game” of getting a job. What do you say? I would say that the real issue is that most job seekers do not know how to effectively market themselves and show...
 
  Leveraging Change
by Sherri Edwards - Nov, 2013
Change is inevitable. Change for the better and change for the worse. Either way, a time of change can be a great opportunity for you to make a statement, become more visible or take on a major challenge that ultimately builds your value over the long term. By continuously broadening your skill set and showing a willingness to adjust to the new needs of an organization throughout periods of change or to the needs of a new empl...
 
  LinkedIn Recommendations–The Latest
by Georgia Adamson - Nov, 2013
As I’ve noted several times, including recently, I’m a fan of LinkedIn recommendations, both in an active job search and in ongoing career management. They help you leverage your career success based on the value you have contributed throughout your career and beef up the strength of your LinkedIn profile. Because LinkedIn keeps changing a lot of its features, I decided to investigate what the process of requesting and giv...
 
  Relationships Matter–For Your Career and Your Life
by Georgia Adamson - Nov, 2013
Relationships don’t just happen–at least, the ones that matter don’t. And in my book, those are the only ones worth spending much time and energy on. Whether it’s in relation to your ongoing career success or to your non-work-related life, you can’t afford to ignore the value and importance of building and nurturing strong relationships. That’s true whether or not they produce any short-term benefits for you personally. R...
 
  Resumes That Work
by Judith Lindenberger - Nov, 2013
If you are looking for a job, writing a resume is one of the first steps you need to take. The goal of a resume is to get you in the door with prospective employers. And, you have about 30 seconds to grab the reader's attention. As the former Manager of Staffing for a Fortune 500 company, certified career counselor, and board member of several nonprofit organizations, I have reviewed thousands of resumes. Based upon my exp...
 
  Spell it Out!
by Harry Urschel - Nov, 2013
Much has been written about preparing for job interviews. However, one aspect of preparation that I can’t emphasize enough, and that hardly ever occurs is… writing out answers to potential interview questions in advance! When the vast majority of people prepare for job interviews, they vaguely think… “If I’m asked about _________, I’ll talk about ______________.” However, they never actually articulate an answer o...
 
  Take this Prize or Wait for Door #3 in Your Job Search?
by Harry Urschel - Nov, 2013
One of the most difficult things for a job seeker to deal with, is when job offers don’t come at the same time! In an ideal world, you would receive all potential offers on the same day. You could lay them out on your dining room table, create your pro/con lists, and make the most rational decision of which offer to accept. The reality, in the vast majority of cases, is that an offer comes, and other potential offers ar...

by Lorrie Boyer - Nov, 2013
When it comes creating an effective LinkedIn Profile, every detail counts. As I teach the job seekers in my Work Skills classes, You only get a few seconds to wow the potential employer.

Your LinkedIn summary differs a slightly from the resume summary in that you can use...

  Not Everyone Needs to be an Executive
by Georgia Adamson - Nov, 2013
The employment trend for years has been to encourage (urge?) everyone to go for a college degree focused on a non-trades career. In fact, skilled trades stopped being even considered as a career path by many people, and those individuals who did choose such a goal have often been looked-down-on. However, that view could need to change drastically and sooner than you might think. Should Everyone Target Senior Management?...
