  3 Scripts to Power Up Your Job Search
by Kimberly Schneiderman - Apr, 2014
One thing clients often say to me is “Hold on, I want to write down what you just said.” Or “Your wording is perfect; I wish I could remember it when I am in the interview!” Whenever this happens, I am honored to have gained the trust and confidence of my clients. And, like most situations, things can be a bit clearer from the outside so that is definitely an advantage I have when coaching clients. With that mind, today I...
  Get a Mentor Before Your Next Career Move
by Sherri Edwards - Apr, 2014
Do you have a mentor? With the start of a new year and an improving economy, it may be a good time to evaluate your current career path and make some decisions about where you are headed. Rather than assuming things are greener in other pastures, it might be helpful to get some advice from someone who has been there, done that. Asking for help from a trusted professional to assist you with developing and accomplishing your obj...
  Your Two-Minute Pitch: The Keystone of Your Job Search
by Joan Runnheim Olson - Apr, 2014
Earlier this week I delivered a presentation at a Twin-Cities based job transition group. My presentation was titled, "Your Two-Minute Pitch: The Keystone of Your Job Search." It's critically important to have a well-crafted, targeted two-minute pitch, aka your elevator pitch to use during your job search. You'll use your Two-Minute Pitch, coined by the Five O'Clock Club, during networking situations and in job interviews...
  I’m a Recent Grad, I Never Worked Before
by Joshua Waldman - Apr, 2014
I remember the first job interview I had as a soon-to-be-minted MBA. It was with a financial investment firm in the suburbs of Boston. The first two interviews were fine, normal, followed the script. But the third and last interview didn’t. My interviewer wore a full beard, not common in the financial industry. And he looked at me, pushed my resume away and said, “What’s a job you took that’s not on this resume?” I to...
  LinkedIn Groups; One of the Most Underutilized Features of LinkedIn
by Kathy Bornheimer - Apr, 2014
Millions of professionals all over the world are now on LinkedIn (or at least have an account). One of the best features of this dynamic, fluid venue is the Group feature. Too many LinkedIn users do not appreciate the power of LinkedIn groups in reaching the right people for the right reasons. The basic premise of any LinkedIn feature, for those of you who have read my articles/blogs on LinkedIn is Quality over Quanti...
  Time To Retire the “Elevator Speech” For Job Seekers
by Teena Rose - Apr, 2014
Time to retire the term “elevator speech” from the job seekers lexicon Does it really work for job seekers? Isn’t a “speech” about 30 or 40 minutes? Most elevators are very short rides here in California. So what is the standard definition? From Wikipedia “An elevator speech, or elevator statement is a short summary used to quickly and simply defines a person, profession, product, service, organization or event an...
  Yes, You Need to Pick a LinkedIn Industry
by Joshua Waldman - Apr, 2014
I understand. Your industry isn’t on the list of available industries on LinkedIn. Mine isn’t either. The problem is that this little tid-bit of data you’re leaving off makes it hard for your audience to figure out what you do. In fact, my eye often goes to a profile’s Industry before I decide to accept a connection request or reply to an InMail. The Industry provides the context needed for someone to relate to...
  Why Your LinkedIn Profile Should Be More Than a Copy of Your Resume
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Apr, 2014
LinkedIn is a great tool for professionals. It offers the opportunity to network with others in your field, and it can be a great tool for finding job leads—and even getting hired. All too often, I see people who simply copy their resume information directly into their LinkedIn profile. This is absolutely the wrong approach for a few reasons, and if this is something that you are doing, it is definitely something you should fi...
  The Case of the Missing Education Section on Your LinkedIn Profile
by Joshua Waldman - Apr, 2014
I won’t lie to you and tell you that your Education section the most important section of your profile. It’s not. Even for students. By itself, it’s not. But as a whole, leaving this part out makes your entire profile seem incomplete. Back in the days when you could judge your profiles completeness based on a percentage, this section was worth 20% of your overall score. When you leave it out, you’re giv...
