  Tips for Writing a Persuasive Cover Letter
by Nimish Thakkar - Sep, 2010
Much has been said about creating a perfect resume, but job seekers pay very little attention to the document that precedes it: the cover letter. A well-crafted cover letter can not only deliver a solid first impression, it can actually influence the hiring manager even before the resume is reviewed. In my professional practice, I often come across cover letters that resemble cookie-cutter templates. Generic letters can be...
 
  Students Must Prove That They Should Be Hired
by Bob Roth - Sep, 2010
As students go through college, they should be aware of one important fact. Employers expect college students to “prove” that they should be hired. Wise students keep this fact in mind and make certain that they can provide the proof that employers seek. Employers are interested in five things: 1. What You Know - It should be obvious that employers will want to find out what students know. Grades are only...

  Are Job Fairs a Good Use of Your Job Search Time?
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Sep, 2010
When you’re out of work, you suddenly find many friends and family who are willing to share their ideas with you about how to get a job. In their attempts to be helpful, people who care about you will often pass on every single tip or nugget they hear about a job opportunity—leaving it up to you to sift through the information in order to find something you can actually use. In many areas of the U.S., the issue is not a la...
 
  Facebook: The Untapped Job Board
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Sep, 2010

While this is good advice, facebook can also be a valuable tool in your job search, as many smaller companies post their job ads on their facebook pages. If you are looking for work at a smaller local company, “liking” their facebook page can often be a great place to start. Open...

by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Sep, 2010
I had lunch with a friend the other day who left her job earlier this year. She relayed to me how she had gotten fed up with a particular client, and so she decided to quit. She had about four months of living expenses saved up, so she figured she was good to go while she looked for another job. Four months later, she finds herself running out of money with no prospects in the pipeline. I was a little shocked to realize...

Regardless of whether you hire a professional or write your own resume, it is useful to have a plain text version on hand during your job application process. Most medium to large companies now use online application systems for their job openings. Some job seekers blow through these application systems, even writing thin...
 
  Reminding Your Network That You’re Looking
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Sep, 2010
Recently I spoke with a woman who has been looking for work for some time. She devotes a significant amount of time each week to networking activities. She said something that stood out to me: “I wake up every day and think about being unemployed, but my contacts don’t think about me until I remind them”. Remind your contacts that you’re looking All too often, those who are looking for work feel embarrassed to repeatedly...
