Bad Job Search Experience: Ignored by Employers
by Georgia Adamson - Jul, 2012
Conducting a job search is hard enough if you get an acknowledgment when you submit your resume for an open position and then don’t hear anything more after that. Not getting any response at all from the employer adds insult to the injury. You probably realize, if you think about it logically, that companies can receive a huge volume of resumes when they advertise a position. However, you also probably can’t help thinking, “Th...

You Need a Hook Before You Can Fish for a New Job
by Joshua Waldman - Jul, 2012
Imagine you are a busy hiring manager. Your recruiter staff doesn’t seem to give you any good candidates. So you go off on your own to do some research. Because you have no budget, you’ll probably end up on a social media site such as LinkedIn, Facebook or Twitter. You’ll stumble around for a little while until you find a profile that catches your eye. At this point, you’ll probably decide to reach out, test the waters, an...
Does Your Job Search Outcome Matter To You?
by Bob Roth - Jun, 2012
With regard to your college years, what matters to you? This is a simple question that has a very important impact on each student’s likelihood of finding employment success. Like the rest of us, students cannot do everything.

How to avoid being overwhelmed by your job hunt
by Miriam Salpeter - Jun, 2012
EmailShare The secret of getting ahead is getting started. The secret of getting started is breaking your complex, overwhelming tasks into small manageable tasks, and then starting on the first one.” – Mark Twain, in The Success Principles, by Jack Canfield It seems obvious – you can’t be successful until you get started. You can’t get started on everything at once, so break it down and work on one thing at a t...
10 Differences Between the Job Search of Today and of Yesterday
by Joshua Waldman - Jun, 2012
1) Google Has Replaced the Resume Recruiters are now using Google and LinkedIn searches to find talent, instead of paying for job-board or talent databases, like they used to do. In fact, many companies are even mandating that every new application go through a Google screening process.

How to Boost Your Self Confidence During a Job Search
by Heather Mundell - Jun, 2012
It's ironic when during a job search, just at the time when you need to feel your most confident, you're feeling your most deflated. Earlier this year I met with a client who had been searching for a new job for over five months.

Leverage Your Added Value as a “Job Hopper”
by Norine Dagliano - Jun, 2012
I was recently coaching a job seeker who was lamenting the fact that she has had multiple job changes over a course of five years. She attempted to minimize attention to this fact by combining positions on her résumé, not revealing that she had recently ended one job and begun another. She attempted to direct the employer’s attention to what she labeled “Summary of Qualifications”, although nowhere on the résumé did she answer...
My Physical Response to Job Loss
by Norine Dagliano - Jun, 2012
Losing a job is quite an emotional experience – looking for your next opportunity leans more toward the cerebral. Until you can come to terms with the first, it is difficult to tackle the latter. I recall my last job loss more than 10 years ago as if it were yesterday.
