4 Ways To Have A Productive Job Search
by Mary Sherwood Sevinsky - Mar, 2013
Many clients complain that they don’t feel as if their job search efforts are getting them anywhere. They have no way to tell if what they are doing is working or not, but they continue doing the same thing day after day. You know the definition of insanity, right? Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. -Albert Einstein 1. Set Goals The best way to have a productive jo...

by Abby Locke - Mar, 2013
A client recently asked me “How many job applications would it take to land a new job?” It’s a good question and certainly a valid question, but unfortunately, a successful job search comes down to more than numbers. A job seeker’s successes and outcomes are influenced by so many factors like economic climate, overall industry conditions, level of experience, available opportunities in target market and geographic locations...

7 Key Ways to Use Social Media in Your Job Search
by Jean Cummings - Mar, 2013
One of the biggest concerns my executive clients have is how to use social media in their job search. They know that it's the new kid on the job search block, but they themselves have rarely gone beyond a bare bones LinkedIn profile (LIP). Facebook evokes shudders of horror, and Twitter is deemed trivial. Some rethinking might be in order. Life calls on us to go out of our comfort zone on occasion - and this may be one of t...

How to get the job: make a good first impression
by Miriam Salpeter - Feb, 2013
People have short attention spans today, and recruiters and hiring managers are no different from the rest of the population.

Did you know that even with a spotless résumé, you can still end up at the bottom of the candidate pool? There’s a group ahead of you, a group that’s gone the extra step in their search. Who am I talking about? The networkers. “It’s not what you know, it’s who you know” is more than a poignant cliché, especially in today’s market. A good number of the people interviewing for the job you know you’re qualified for found a wa...
Why You Should Always Know Your Worth
by Rich Jones - Feb, 2013
I got a few questions last week on Twitter from folks that did something during an interview that many of us have done before: Blurted out a salary range when asked, did research after the interview, then realize the range they blurted out was way lower than the industry standard. Uncool beans. It’s very easy to get caught offguard by an impromptu call from a recruiter. That’s usually not his or her intention...

They get echoed back to us in remarks like: “Ugh, what are you going to do with philosophy?” “You majored in psych?
