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...

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.

by Cathy Eng - Nov, 2010

Research has indicated that they are perceived as unproductive under-performers, which has created a major problem even for highly qualified and valuable individuals who may be laid off.

  Career Need a Boost? Give ‘Em Something to Talk About!
by Dawn Lennon - Nov, 2010

The pace of the daily grind makes face-to-face contact with our bosses brief and infrequent. Feeling faceless is dispiriting. It’s important to be seen. Acting out, complaining, or decorating our cubicles like Mardi Gras take us down the wrong path. A better strategy is to...
