  How to stand out on your resume
by Miriam Salpeter - May, 2011
Almost every resume I see reads like a laundry list of “stuff” the person has done at work. The problem is that everyone applying for the job you seek probably has a similar list of “stuff.” What makes you stand out? Why are you special – why do YOU deserve to win an interview and the job? It certainly isn’t because you were “Responsible for” something or that you were “Recruited to” do something. A prospective employer wan...

  Job Search: Be a pest…in a good way
by Hallie Crawford - May, 2011
On a group coaching call last week, clients Herman and James were discussing the best ways to follow up on a job application. I always suggest, depending on the employer’s time frame and how connected you were to them during the interview, to follow up consistently but in a reasonable (but not to pesty), timeframe via phone if possible. I prefer the phone over email because email could get lost. Also, over the phone, people...
 
  Find your career sweet spot – your dream job is out there!
by Hallie Crawford - May, 2011
Look for your dream job by narrowing your options to find your career sweet spot. This is from a group coaching client, Joe, who has found a job to apply for that he didn’t even know existed. The job beautifully combines his interest in training and past work experience in manufacturing and distribution. “The last thing I would like to share is that once you narrow down your choices, make a plan to get there, and most i...

  Career Alert: “Your Employer Brands You. Take It or Leave It.”
by Dawn Lennon - May, 2011
Companies are credentials. Who we work for says a lot about us. Just ask any resume screener or hiring manager. This reality adds to the job search and career building pressures that are already intense enough. No one ever said this career success thing was going to be easy. What’s in a name? Here’s how it happens: Organizations have their own identities. They are defined by the mission, decisions, and performance...
 
  A Little Good Job Market News for a Change
by Wendy Enelow - May, 2011
I just received an update from Indeed.com on current employment trends by industry and city. (Indeed.com is a job site that will search job sites, newspapers, associations and company career pages for you.) Their analysis shows that 10 out of 13 industries which they track generated more job postings in April than they did in any other month so far this year. Among the notable trends were a 25% quarterly growth in Transp...
 
  Do You Really Want to Use THAT LinkedIn Photo?
by Laura Smith-Proulx - May, 2011
Some time ago, I ran across a LinkedIn picture of a job seeker who was holding a very specific political sign over her head. In bright letters. In shorts (and no, they did NOT become her).

As a result, I came away with a...
