  Executive Phone Interview? 10 Important Techniques to Land the Offer
by Lisa Rangel - Nov, 2015
Executive phone interviews are very different from an in-person or video interview and pose special challenges. When the job position you want is on the line, you need to know how to make the right impression. Employment interviews take place in person, via webcam, and on the telephone. The big difference for a telephone interview is the lack of your ability to see, or telegraph, important nonverbal cues. To some, a tele...
  LinkedIn Referrals: One More Reason To Properly Optimize Your LinkedIn Profile

LinkedIn announced the rollout of LinkedIn Referrals this week. LinkedIn Referrals, which is being called the next generation of LinkedIn Recruiter, is where recruiters use profiles of their superstar managers and employees to find other applicants with similar traits and expertise to add to the rock star employee roster.

by Robin Schlinger - Nov, 2015
A professionally written resume can spark the interest of hiring managers and recruiters; keep your personal network well informed; and give you the confidence you need to ace an interview. But here are six things your resume cannot do: ◾Your resume cannot get you a job. It can get you phone calls and interviews; but the final result is up to the company who interviews you. ◾Your resume cannot qualify you for...
  Resumes for People with Long Careers at One Company: Part II
by Robin Schlinger - Oct, 2015
Some people feel that a long career at one company is a drawback, revealing a lack of initiative. However, that loyalty to one company shows not only your commitment to your employer but also your employer’s recognition of your value over the long term. Your resume should demonstrate how your long career at one company will benefit another company. How do you do that? Step 1. Remember what your current company looked like w...

  Resumes for People with Long Careers at One Company: Part I
by Robin Schlinger - Oct, 2015
A good friend of mine told me about his sister who had been out of work for almost a year. His sister refused to go to a professional resume writer because she had already sent out dozens of resumes with no success whatever. So why should she pay for a product that would not get her a job? My friend asked to see her resume. He told me: “I looked at the resume and rolled my eyes. My sister has years and years of experience,...

by Robin Schlinger - Oct, 2015
Under the pressure of writing a clear, concise resume, job seekers often assume that they know how to use and spell words that they read every day of their lives. That assumption can cost them an interview if they make a mistake; hiring managers and recruiters are very rigid about rejecting resumes with mistakes. Here are six words that are commonly misused in resumes and some guidelines on how to use them correctly. Comple...
  6 Rules for Using Acronyms in Resumes
by Robin Schlinger - Sep, 2015
In these blog posts, you will find many occasions when I have mentioned the danger of including too many acronyms in your resume without defining them. It is easy to assume that “everyone” knows what an acronym means, only to discover that the acronym has an entirely different meaning in another company—or even in another division. A resume loaded with acronyms is difficult to read even by someone who knows exactly what you me...
  The Essence of Job Searching with Social Media
by Joshua Waldman - Sep, 2015
Last night a light bulb went off during my hands-on 2 hr workshop. The workshop started off as usual. Introductions. LinkedIn, personal branding ninja techniques, getting to Google’s first page. And just as we were about to get into Twitter…Time ran out! I realized that I’m giving out A LOT of information. Way too much for just 2 hours. Instead of raising the price, or cutting the amount of content I’m giving away, I dec...
  In Job Search Communications, Taglines Work for You!
by Thea Kelley - Sep, 2015
Getting a job is a matter of marketing communications. You have a product to sell – your skills – but you have a lot of competition. You need to be able to very quickly, clearly and memorably communicate what differentiates you. That’s your brand.
