Are you looking in the right direction for your career?
by Miriam Salpeter - Aug, 2011
Last month, while walking in the magnificent Central Park in New York City, I saw a man taking a picture. As you can see in the photo I took of the man (to your right), it wasn’t that he was taking a picture that was striking, but HOW he was taking it — on his back, on the ground, pointing the lens up at the trees. His tripod (if that’s what you call it) covered his body like some sort of shield. Clearly, there was somethin...
White Collar Professionals Unemployed for 1 Year or More: Investigating Your Job Options
by Ben Ruark - Aug, 2011
If not encountered already, at some point in a protracted unemployment interlude we're forced to decide whether continuing a search for the same/similar position previously held is going to succeed in the near-future; or whether we're on a treadmill-to-nowhere: that we've crossed over some invisible 'threshold of denial' - refusing to acknowledge the harsh reality that our profession's job market exercises exclusionary criteri...

by Miriam Salpeter - Aug, 2011
Have you been trying out Google+ for your job hunt? It promises to be an important addition to social networking strategies for job seekers, and it’s important to try to keep on top of opportunities to engage and grow your communities and to learn new information via online tools. I believe there are three big reasons to use social media: To expand the number of people you know and who know you. To learn new informat...

Research is an important aspect of your job search. You'll want to start by developing a list of companies. Below are tips to help you get going: 1) Brainstorm all of your job targets.

It’s time to leap out of your dead-end job!
by Hallie Crawford - Aug, 2011
I was thrilled to receive this email from Callie, a career coaching client I worked with a few months ago. She has a new job! Even in this bad economy, I still hear about people and clients who are finding jobs, and getting hired. There are many success stories out there! I had such a great experience with you, and now recommend everyone see a career coach. In fact, I’ve been meaning to tell you that I am starting a new job...

It’s important to understand the relationship among all involved parties (the recruiter, company, and you), get your resume in top shape, and to be ready to deal with po...
Your Resume Doesn't Get You A Job

Most college students wait until their final year before they start thinking seriously about their job search. At that point, they begin to worry about their resume and the interviews they will take. These students know that many employers review resumes first, to determine which students they will interview. With this in mind, students often spend hours trying to craft a resume that will impress prospective employers. T...
Don't be a professional job hopper
by Hallie Crawford - Jul, 2011
I can't tell you how many times I've spoken with career coaching clients who said, "I tried one career path and it wasn't a fit, so I tried something else that was different." This happened to me again this week. This particular career coaching client said they figured they should try the opposite of what they were already doing. I can relate to this idea well because I felt the same way in my 20's. I had 5 different jobs,...

by Lou Adler - Jul, 2011
Some points to make before you read this article: 1. It’s somewhat controversial, but by the end you’ll agree (if you get that far). 2. If you’re a corporate recruiter or HR leader, put your confirmation bias in the parking lot before reading this article. 3. You might want to listen to this YouTube video of a webcast (Future of Recruiting Circa 2020) we recently held. It will give you a sense what’s happening no...
