The Simple $6 Job Search
by Kevin Donlin - Jun, 2010
As a rule, simple is good. The iPad interface, Google, popsicles -- they’re all simple things that achieve great results. Applied to your job search, simplicity can achieve great results, too.

by Ford R. Myers - Jun, 2010
When you’re in a job search, it’s important to be crystal clear about the kinds of companies you’d like to work for. Once you have gained this clarity, you’ll want to research and identify the names of the companies that meet your search criteria.

Your American Idol “Moment” In Your Job Interview!
by Harry Urschel - May, 2010
My family and I have been ‘American Idol’ fans the last couple of years, watching the contestants try to give their best performances week after week. It’s been fun to watch, but enlightening as well to see the work and effort they have to put in to try to become the winner. Often, the judges will talk about the importance of having a “moment”. They are referring to having a performance that rises above the others by connec...

Zero to Hired in 30 Days with Guerrilla Networking
by Kevin Donlin - May, 2010
If you’re in the job market today, you know that the shortest route to employment is often...non-existent. You email your resume in response to a job posting. Then wait. Email to follow up. Wait. Get a phone interview. Wait to hear back from the employer. Etc. What a long, strange trip it can be -- if you do what everyone else is doing. But what if you blaze your own trail and make your own rules? That’s what “guer...

It doesn’t do me much good if I can’t connect with them!” It’s great if you are given a phone number and/or email address with a name, however...
