  Chuzzles, locks and roadblocks
by Dawn Bugni - Jun, 2011
Ok. I admit it. I like to play Chuzzle. After a long day of ferreting out client information and formulating presentation strategies, I like mindless, no-thinking-involved entertainment. Chuzzle provides it. Briefly, you match three (or more) of the same color fuzz balls by moving the columns up and down or left and right. They giggle, explode and accumulate points. New fuzz balls drop into place until you’ve exploded enoug...
 
  Create Effective Job Applications in Three Proven Steps
by Hallie Crawford - Jun, 2011
A problem that I come across a lot when working with my career coaching clients is their ability to position themselves effectively when applying for a job. Last week I was working with a client, Susan. We were putting together her cover letter and resume for a position she was very excited about. Her problem was that she could only focus on the area that she felt did NOT fit the job. This very talented, highly educated profe...

  Want to Serve on a Non-Profit Board? Put Your Business Hat On.
by Dawn Lennon - Jun, 2011
It lifts us up when we do "good" for others: Help our neighbor, donate money to charity, volunteer at an event, or serve on a non-profit board. Non-profit board positions are platforms from which we can lead, engage support, and help more people. Some people "collect" board appointments to look important and influential. Others can't get beyond operational details to focus on the long-term. Many are so uncomfortable wi...
 
  How to interview and illustrate skills that are a reach
by Miriam Salpeter - Jun, 2011
What are the skills you need to demonstrate when you apply for jobs? It’s usually not very difficult to identify what employers are looking for; their 3000-word, in-depth job descriptions don’t leave much to the imagination. Many firms also post videos, have Facebook sites and Twitter feeds touting their organizations and why you might want to work there. Skip these resources at your own peril — they are telling you exactly...
 
  Why you’re not getting the job
by Miriam Salpeter - Jun, 2011
It’s one of the most difficult and frustrating questions to face. Job seekers usually don’t receive feedback from hiring managers or interviewers, let alone hear why their resume may not have been selected for an interview. Instead, they are left to wonder if there is something wrong with them. I don’t advise job seekers rely too much on the old stand-by reasons why they didn’t get the job: ageism (they want a 25-year old,...
 
  How You Should BE for an Interview
by Thomas J. Denham - Jun, 2011
What happens during the interview will determine your future. Make no mistake, you are a commodity and the most successful job hunter is the one that can close the sale. Your Goal: Convince the interviewer that you are absolutely the best person to fill the position. Remember: Ultimately, every question an interviewer asks you is related to one simple question: “Why should I hire you?” All of your long hours of hard w...

When writing a resume, one of your biggest challenges is figuring out how to get the message across that you’re a results-maker. One of the best ways to get this done is by using numbers. Quantifying what you’ve accomplished helps the hiring manager envision what you can get done at a new company. Want to know how to get it done? Here are some tips to consider. Look at the Amount of What You’ve Accomplished A great way t...
 
  3 Techniques to Avoid a Boring, Never-Gets-Read Resume
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Jun, 2011
Writing resumes can be tedious—and even stressful at times. If any of us could help it, we’d probably write one resume, create a blanket e-mail that read, “Here I am! Hire me!”, add the e-mail address of every hiring manager on the planet, and then hit send. But we know this isn’t the way to go—which is why we create different resumes for each job. The problem is, that oftentimes our resumes manage to look the same anywa...
 
  3 Tips for Writing Your First Resume after Being Fired
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Jun, 2011
There’s often nothing more shocking than being fired from a job. Not only is it difficult to lose an income, but the stigma attached to it can be difficult to overcome. For some, the idea of applying for a new job after being fired can be overwhelming. How do you tell a prospective employer that your old employer decided to let you go?
