Eight Reasons Why You Need a Personal Brand
by Stacey Lane - Feb, 2014
I used to be skeptical about personal brands. They felt contrived and a bit manipulative – and far too self-promotional for my liking. I like to think of myself as discerning – I hate feeling like I’m being sold on anything. I was wrong. Personal branding is just another way of saying that you’re clear about you. Your brand is your authenticity. It’s that simple. What shifted for me is that I see branding as a way to...
How learning his brand led to new-found confidence... and a job
by Stacey Lane - Jan, 2014
One of the best parts of my job is seeing clients be successful. Especially when their success comes as a bit of a surprise to them - unexpected or unintended success. That's what happened to Rob, one of my Brand You Boot Camp participants. What I love about his story, and why I asked him if I could share it with you, is that Rob was a bit skeptical about personal branding. You know I love a challenge! Rob has a backgr...
Job Search-No Fear, No Failure?
by Georgia Adamson - Jan, 2014
Wouldn’t life be great if your job searches were never touched by fear or failure? You would proceed with total confidence from start to finish and have a desirable outcome every time. Right–and I’m the Queen of Sheba! And what about fear of failure? Sounds like a double-whammy, doesn’t it? Realism in the Job Search I’ve never met anyone who could honestly say he or she had never experienced fear or failure in...
“Hey, I Know You!” How Social Media Could Ruin Your Chance of Landing That Job
by Rowe Leathers - Jan, 2014
I know your likes and dislikes. I know how you spend your weekends and where you go on vacations. I know who your friends are, and I know your family. I know where you went to school and where you live. I know the things that interest you and the things that are important to you. I know all of this about you without my ever having to ask. More importantly, I know that I do not want to hire you. Just like that, you have...
The Determined vs. Disbelieving Job Seeker: Which are you?
by Kristen Carter - Jan, 2014
With a difficult job market and an overqualified applicant pool, it is becoming increasingly common for people to seek job search guidance with the hopes of landing a position. The importance of standing out to a potential employer, has led many job seekers to admit they need outside help. Enter career coaches! I have been blessed to work with many students and alumni as a career coach. The variety of hopes and dreams tha...
How Do I Become A Virtual Call Center Agent?
by Pamela La Gioia - Jan, 2014
If you’ve been thinking about working from home but thought this type of work arrangement was only for web designers, writers, or computer “geeks”, think again. There are numerous call center companies that have adopted this work-from-home model. And the number of virtual call centers are growing. This means more job opportunities for Americans who are interested in working from home as customer service representatives. T...
Get Out From Under the Career ‘Should Haves’
by Caroline Dowd-Higgins - Jan, 2014
When I talk with women in my coaching practice and around the country about loving their work, some balk at the idea. There is a contingent of women in the workforce who believe that the words ‘love’ and ‘work’ don’t belong in the same sentence, and many of these women are quick to pepper their conversations about jobs and career with an abundance of the word ‘should’. On a regular basis I hear things like ‘It doesn’t...

Why Business Cards Don’t Matter as Much as This
by Rich Jones - Jan, 2014
I’ve made a good number of business cards over the years. Some I spent a ton of time on. You may have done the same. You sit there agonizing over the logo (if you have one), where your name goes, which phone number you put down (I be on my Google Voice flow), and how quickly they’ll arrive. Because honestly, a lot of us don’t think about business cards until there’s some event coming up where we know we’ll meet a lot of peopl...
You Want an Edge in This Job Market? Create That LinkedIn Profile NOW!
by Mindy Thomas - Jan, 2014
Why? It’s simply a no brainer. The funny thing is, no matter how many times I read an article or a blog post touting the validity and importance of LinkedIn, I end up befuddled by the resistance of this networking and job search tool. Boomers hide their head in the sand. College students look the other way. And, forget about the people who are trying to transition in this job market. They just fast forward their way to the res...
