  How Can You Guarantee That You Get An Interview?
by Stacey Lane - Nov, 2015
Oh, how I love this question. When people tell me that they’ve never had an interview when they didn’t get an offer, I ask only one question: “How long ago was your last job search?” Why? Because the whole hiring process isn’t quite as straightforward as you might have experienced it in the past. Even seasoned, confident job-seekers are getting thrown off their game and not getting offers after one, two or even three se...
  How long will my job search take?
by Stacey Lane - Nov, 2015
When I get asked by my clients how long their job search will be, I give them my general rule: “It will take longer than you think it should, even when the job market is humming along.” Your timeline isn’t necessarily in sync with hiring timelines, nor can you predict when the “right fit” job will come along. You may even base your time estimate on how long it took you back in 2009 when you were last looking. Throw those old...
  4 Tips to Being More Hirable Every Executive Should Know
by Louise Garver - Nov, 2015
The executive job market has changed over the years. That’s a fact. Employers are extremely selective with their executive hires more so today than ever before. The number of qualified candidates searching for new positions still creates a highly competitive market. How can you present yourself to be more hirable and beat out your competition? Tip 1: Stand out with your resume. The old-fashioned resume format is dead. Be...
  Avoid These 3 Resume Mistakes
by Jacqui Barrett-Poindexter - Nov, 2015
According to, the definition for resume is "a summing up; summary;" and, "a brief written account of personal, educational and professional qualifications and experiences, as that prepared by an applicant for a job." With this somewhat broad definition in mind, job seekers often get consumed by understanding the details of what to do when building a career summary. However, the conundrum is that you're not su...
  Entrepreneurs vs. Employees: You Can be Both!
by Georgia Adamson - Nov, 2015
Sometimes the concepts of entrepreneur and employee are described as two sides of a coin–that is, you can be one or the other, but not both. In other cases, they’re positioned as not so mutually exclusive. I tend to support the latter view, at least much of the time. What does that mean to you? For one thing, you might find that even a bit of entrepreneurial spirit gives you an edge over your competition. It sets you apart...
  Returning to the Job Market: How Resumes Have Changed
by Robin Schlinger - Nov, 2015
There are many reasons you may not have competed for a job in the last several years. The most common is that you have been employed in the same company for all those years and were not searching. However, you may also have dropped out of the job market because of family obligations; because an economic downturn left you among the long-term unemployed; or because of other changes in your situation. If you have not competed...

The LinkedIn Profile and Usage trends for 2015 are still in effect, as it is still important to make your profile app friendly, capitalize on the multimedia features, start publishing on LinkedIn’s Pulse, and make your profile resume-like with personality. However, with the multitude of LinkedIn’s changes this year, it has cultivated a new crop of trends that will enable executive job seekers to get the most from their LinkedI...
  A Well-Written Resume Versus a Job List
by Robin Schlinger - Nov, 2015
Too many job applicants think of their resume as a list of the jobs they have held and the tasks they have completed over their career. They focus on their old responsibilities and job titles, forgetting the true purpose of a resume: to help them move on to their next job. One of the statements I make over and over in these blog posts is that a resume should be targeted for the job you want, not the job you had. The requir...
  Job Search & Career Resources for the 55+ Crowd
by Georgia Adamson - Nov, 2015
Whether you’re in the 55+ job seeker category yet or not, the job search and career resources available for that group will undoubtedly become important to you at some point. That’s especially true if the tendency of too many companies to base their hiring decisions on perceived age-related drawbacks stays as active as it has been in the past. Job Search Challenges for 55+ Job Seekers According to Experience Works (formerl...
  LinkedIn Referrals: One More Reason To Properly Optimize Your LinkedIn Profile
by Lisa Rangel - Nov, 2015
LinkedIn announced the rollout of LinkedIn Referrals this week. LinkedIn Referrals, which is being called the next generation of LinkedIn Recruiter, is where recruiters use profiles of their superstar managers and employees to find other applicants with similar traits and expertise to add to the rock star employee roster. So instead of trying to write a candidate profile or job description to capture the essence of that top no...
