Should I Quit My Job?
by Karen Burns - Nov, 2009
Seems like an insane question, doesn’t it? Nowadays most people are just trying to hold on to the jobs they’ve got. But say you have a really awful job. You hate, despise, loathe it. It pays like dirt, you have no chance of improving it, and it makes every single day of your life an unbearable hell. Should you just quit? Of course if you read the news about the soaring unemployment rate, the “jobless” recovery, the ...
Why Your E-mail Address Could Be Keeping You From Your Dream Job
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Nov, 2009
As a hiring manager I have seen it all and by all I mean some pretty 'creative' e-mail addresses on resumes. For my friends out there that are clueless let me give you a hint; anything personal is not professional. Let me be specific - I once had a woman apply for a job and her e-mail address ON HER RESUME was Sexkitten69@ whatever her domain was, let me just tell you this is NOT a good email address and promptly landed her...
Be Constructive In Your Use of Layoff Time
by Linda Dobogai - Nov, 2009
Depressive feelings associated with being dislocated can impact your energy level if you allow this to happen. Remember there is a moment where we can choose between lethargy and taking action. Perhaps you need some time to process the feelings. Find someone you trust to talk things over and then consciously commit to move on by drawing up a plan of action. No doubt that plan of action will focus on a “job hunt.” Notice the...
Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, LinkedIn, Twitter, and Your Job Search
by Barbara Safani - Nov, 2009
LinkedIn and Twitter recently announced a partnership that will enable users to simultaneously update their status on both platforms. Doing so can help amplify your message to your followers and real-time search engines. LinkedIn and Twitter have billed the new interface as two great tastes that taste great together. And I think this move is a sweet deal for job seekers as well. By using both platforms on a regular basis, job ...
You Lost Your Job! Now What?
by Mary Sherwood Sevinsky - Nov, 2009
You lost your job (the reason doesn’t really matter so much at this point does it). What do you do? BREATHE. It may feel like the end of the world, but for most it is not. As an adult you structure your life around your work schedule. You are your job. When you unexpectedly lose your job it wreaks havoc with your emotions. Your self esteem suffers. Your relationships suffer. You feel miserable. Don’t do anything. No...
Job Search Technology: From High to Low -- and No
by Kevin Donlin - Nov, 2009
Technology can be a wonderful servant and an awful master. To find work faster, remember that your goal with any gadgetry or software -- from smart phones and email to Linkedin and Twitter -- is to meet people who can hire you. What that in mind, here are two ways to find a job -- one high-tech and the other very low -- from Australia. How can you adapt them to your search? 1) Tweet and Meet Jade Craven, in Geelong,...
Get Them to Buy Your Brand
by Cathy Alfandre - Nov, 2009
When you’re in the supermarket, you buy the brands that you find valuable, right? In the labor market, employers buy the brands that they think will add value too. This is especially true when times are tough; hiring decisions are made so carefully. Do you know your personal brand? If not, now’s the time to figure it out and market it. The notion of a personal brand was first coined by Tom Peters in Fast Company magazine...
Finding Opportunity In Difficult Times: How Do You Do That?
by Marshall Brown - Nov, 2009
“Oh dear!” cried Chicken Little, “the sky is falling. I must go tell the king.” The expression “the sky is falling” has become synonymous with a person jumping to an irrational conclusion and working everyone they meet into a panic. It can be argued that this is happening with the current economic situation, the public is being whipped into mass hysteria. Whether you believe the economic “sky” is falling (or that i...
New City & No Job? Five Steps to Finding Work
by Mary Sherwood Sevinsky - Nov, 2009
I have had a couple of clients ask me how to network now that they have moved. Career change is hard enough, let alone finding new network contacts in an unfamiliar area. First, let me recommend that you have your career goal in mind and, preferably, at least partially achieved. It surprises me how many people move without having a job or even the prospect of a job – not the independently wealthy, mind you, just regularly folk...
The Role of Recruiters in Your Job Hunt
by Randy Wooden - Nov, 2009
During my career I’ve not only provided private and corporate outplacement, but I’ve also spent years as a headhunter (executive search) and have worked inside corporations as an in-house recruiter. And I’ve been a job seeker myself. So I bring a diverse experience when assisting someone’s job hunt. I’m often told, “I’ll hold off on contracting with you because I want to have a recruiter place me for free.” The reality i...
