Riding the Wave: Problem Solving, Coping and Staying Resilient
by Sherri Edwards - Jun, 2011
There are many factors beyond a bad economy that are contributing to some people’s continued unemployment. The limited number of jobs may only be a fraction of what the problem is. Let me qualify this by stating I am not a therapist or a psychologist and don’t pretend to be. As I review my clients’ circumstances, I look at some basic and obvious issues, the same way employers will: are you able to go to work and do what you ar...
Twitter and Your Job Search
by Randy Wooden - Jun, 2011
Twitter is gaining ground as a job hunting resource. Read entire article here. Most of my clients recognize LinkedIn as their chief online professional networking resource. It also lists a number of jobs. But most people haven’t awakened to the value of Twitter as a means of identifying positions within targeted companies. I think too many people believe Twitter to be just another online time-eater… something filled w...
Succeeding in a “Final Jeopardy!” World
by Walter Akana - Jun, 2011
Yes, I’ll admit it. Upon seeing this month’s topic, my first association was Jeopardy! Perhaps it was the listing of categories in search of answers, but in a flash, I was thinking, “l’ll take re-tooling for 100, Alex.” And in my rapid free association, the answer “commodities” came to mind, quickly followed by, “What do you call transferable skills?” As a career coach, I’ve long believed that one’s ability to identify tra...

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...

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.

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.
