Update Your Job Search Strategy
by Georgia Adamson - Feb, 2013
Sometimes we find that we have achieved a comfortable groove with our job search and career management. If that describes you, you might want to consider that a synonym for “groove” is “rut”!

Three Ways to Demonstrate Your Value in a Job Search
by Joshua Waldman - Feb, 2013
When I train career advisors and job seekers on the strategic approach to the online job search, I make sure to mention that a résumé is an obituary.

by Sherri Edwards - Feb, 2013
An epiphany hit me recently after reading an article about the current status of job loss in Washington State. Reporting “no jobs” does not necessarily mean there is “no work available.” The term “jobless,” doesn’t have to mean “without work.” When I think about it, passively waiting for a job to open up when there is so much work around us to be done may not be the best approach to what could be a dire situation.
