  The Dos and Don’ts of Thank You Notes
by Lindsey Pollak - Nov, 2010
Last week I talked about how to ask people for advice. This week, I thought it would be helpful to talk about how to thank people for the advice (and any other assistance) you receive. How perfect that it’s Thanksgiving week, too! Here are my top tips: Email thank yous are acceptable. I admit I’ve changed my mind over the years about email thank you notes. For a long time, I preached the importance of sending handwritten...
 
  Are you a French fry or a job seeker?
by Miriam Salpeter - Nov, 2010
One of the first things I tell prospective clients who have received job hunting advice elsewhere before coming to me is that a lot of job search is unscientific — what one person likes, another thinks is useless. A good example is the cover letter debate. Some recruiters expect a cover letter, others believe they are a waste of time. The fact that opinions vary about “right and wrong” is clear in resume-ology as well. The fa...
 
  Authenticity Rules
by Ariadne Moisiades - Nov, 2010
Just the other day, I had another person tell me all they want to do is work at Google. I get this one a lot, so I’ve started asking why. The response usually focuses on one of the following: • “Because it’s fun.” • “They really support you.” • “They give you room to be yourself.” I also usually hear: • “… and they have great perks.” It makes sense – Google offers great health care, child care, flex time, generous compen...
 
  Cracking the Connection Code: Networking for the Introverted
by Mary Jeanne Vincent - Nov, 2010
Hi I'm Mary Jeanne Vincent, Career Expert and Strategist. I have a private career coaching. I help people just like you reframe their background, rediscover their expertise and reclaim their career to make smart and rewarding career choices. We’ve all heard it before: “Just get out there and network!” If it was that easy, we would already be doing it. So why is it so hard? Well, you’re an introvert, aren’t you? Enough said...
 
  Engineers, Scientists, and Programmers: No Need to Apologize About Your Resume
by Paul Freiberger - Nov, 2010
The calls often begin with an apologetic “never needed a programmer resume” admission: “I’ve never had to get a professional resume before.” Or, “I never dreamed of hiring a professional resume writer. I’ve always been able to land a programming job.” Or, “I never even had to look for jobs. They found me.” Software wizards have seldom needed help from resume wizards. Engineers and programmers have a desired set of skills t...
 
  How Many Pages Should My Resume Be?
by Paul Freiberger - Nov, 2010
Unlike what your college adviser or career counselor may have told you, there are very few hard and fast rules regarding resume length. There are guidelines, but these can be broken at the drop of a hat if the end result, your resume, would be bettered by dropping them. Especially in times of high unemployment, professional resume writing is an art that demands a near-psychic connection with whoever is going to be reading...
 
  Job Search Essentials: New Resume, New Suit, New Attitude?
by Cathy Eng - Nov, 2010
When I was searching for my first corporate job, I was called a few days after an interview and told, "Thank you for coming in, however we’ve decided to offer the position to someone else." I politely thanked her and let her know I appreciated the interview and follow-up call. The next day, I received a call from the same person with a job offer. I remember her words so vividly: "I’ll bet you weren’t expecting to hear from me!...
 
  Does Your Resume Showcase A Powerful Storyline?
by Nimish Thakkar - Nov, 2010
Every day, we are bombarded with hundreds of advertisements, many with deceptively similar offerings and marketing messages. In an overcrowded marketplace, ultimately, the products or services that are most likely to cut through the clutter and win our business are the ones that deliver marketing pitches with a higher level of recall. The hiring manager’s dilemma can be likened to our own experience with television commerci...
 
  Why Am I Not Getting A Response From Employers?
by Nimish Thakkar - Nov, 2010
I have sent out dozens of resumes -- why am I not getting a response from employers? As resume writers and career coaches, we hear such questions very frequently. While the economy can be a major determining factor, the truth is that job seekers can take affirmative steps to improve response rates. While many variables can impact the success of a job search campaign, four major factors merit consideration: background, resum...
 
  Straight from The Experts: Best Job Search Practices!
by Kimberly Schneiderman - Nov, 2010
In September, I had the pleasure of attending (and speaking at) the National Resume Writer¡¦s Association¡¦s annual professional development conference in Fort Worth, Texas. There were several really good sessions that gave me new tools to bring back to my clients and one of the "biggies" that I am sharing with you was the 2 hour panel discussion featuring hiring managers from four major industries. In this article, you wi...
