Using Testimonials in Your Resume
by Thea Kelley - Oct, 2014
When writing your resume, it's one thing to claim you're terrific at teamwork, building great client relationships, or coaching others. But where's the evidence?

Rather than just asking the employer to take your word for it, why not have someone else vouch for you? In an increasingly review-...
URL vs. IRL: How Should You Build Your Personal Brand?
by Lindsey Pollak - Oct, 2014
As a professional today, your online image is essential. It’s just as likely that a potential client will “meet” you through a Google search as at a professional conference. Or, if you’re job hunting, that a recruiter will view your credentials on the LinkedIn® app as on a paper resume. Every professional must craft and maintain a professional online brand that will impress the people who view it and entice them to do busines...

by Mindy Thomas - Sep, 2014
When my boomer buddy, a global SVP, informed me that he landed a new job in less than 60 days after getting laid off from his company after 20 years, I shouted with joy. With over 3 million baby boomers currently unemployed, we all know how tough it is. I asked him, “Do you realize that you just shattered your own myth about not being hireable because you are ‘over the hill’, have grey hair and are 64 years old?” I will...
Small Mistakes with Big Results
by Robin Schlinger - Sep, 2014
Often small mistakes on a resume have the potential to upset a job applicant’s chances. For example: The absence of a two letter word is easy overlook when proofreading a resume—in this sentence, the word “to” is missing.

Missing periods and commas are common in re...

How to Utilize Similarities Between House Shopping and Job Hunting
by Jessica Stasiw - Sep, 2014
Having your house listed is similar to animal visitations at the zoo. There is a consistent parade of strangers coming in and out of your dwelling, touching your things, critiquing where you live, and tracking in dirt. My house was recently listed and while I went through the experience I had to in turn look for a new place to live. We are still currently on the hunt for the right house, and let me say there have been some mis...
