  Five Essentials For Competing With Professionally Written Resumes
by Cathy Eng - Feb, 2011
While it is ideal to effortlessly craft a masterpiece resume that's irresistible to any employer, the reality is most people hate writing their resume and the result can often be obvious in the finished product. Poorly presented resumes communicate a lot more than what is written on the page. They tell employers that the candidate may lack attention to detail, follow-through, and quality. The simple solution is to have a prof...

  Utilizing Your Networks
by Adrianne L. Hooker - Feb, 2011
The current job market is frustrating to say the least. In fact, there has to be another more vexing term to describe extremely limited job opportunities for the millions of unemployed and underemployed Americans. In December 2010, United States economists proudly projected the job market would return to “normal” within four years, while other economists struggle to define what the new future “normal” will be. This informatio...
 
  Keywords: The Good, The Bad, and The Overused
by Cathy Eng - Feb, 2011
One of today's major buzzwords is "keywords" and even though the English language contains thousands of usable keywords, many are getting used way more than they should in resumes. The secret to keywords is to be as specific as possible, using words that set you apart from the competition rather than put you in a class with them. Here are some of those keywords I would classify as good, bad, and overused. Good: These keywor...
 
  Stop Comparing, Mind Your Own Business
by Hallie Crawford - Feb, 2011
I was working with a new client the other day in an all day intensive career coaching program. She flew in from Louisiana to work with me, and right off the bat I sensed that she was comparing herself to her friends. She told me point blank that she was frustrated with the fact that “all of her friends knew what they wanted to do next” and she didn’t. It was clear this was creating a lot of anxiety for her. I see this often...

  How Many Bullets Are Too Many & Other Common Job History Questions
by Cathy Eng - Feb, 2011
For most professionals, your job history (commonly listed as Professional or Work Experience) is where hiring managers find a lot of your value. This is where you detail in a reverse-chronological order what you did, for whom, where, and for how long. Though there are many ways to write a job history, there are some tried and true methods for making it clear, concise, and interesting - essentials for getting noticed by a hirin...
 
  How to find a job — stop competing and start excelling
by Miriam Salpeter - Feb, 2011
Everyone wants to know the job search rules. How long should my resume be? What should my cover letter say? When is the right time to follow up? How do I introduce myself in a networking setting? Do I list “job seeker” in my LinkedIn heading? Should I use Twitter? How often should I tweet? The list goes on and on. The short answer I tell all of my clients? “There’s no one *right* way to approach a job search.” It’s...
