College Grads Can Frustrate Employers
by Bob Roth - Jun, 2010
Employers will always be on the lookout for college seniors and recent grads they think will contribute to the success of their organizations. As you might expect, organizations need people who can get things done, make things better, advance within their organizations and help the organization grow and become more profitable.

Do Resumes Make You Crazy?
by Deborah Brown-Volkman - Jun, 2010
What to put on a resume can be daunting, frustrating, and upsetting. Will I cover all the bases? Will my accomplishments come across? How long should my resume be? And, what format? The stress and anxiety builds inside and doesn't subside. Resumes scare even the most seasoned worker. There are rules, both perceived and real, that leave people confused and afraid to get it wrong. Whether you need a job right now, o...
Your “Target Company List” Builds Focus, Momentum, and Productivity
by Ford R. Myers - Jun, 2010
When you’re in a job search, it’s important to be crystal clear about the kinds of companies you’d like to work for. Once you have gained this clarity, you’ll want to research and identify the names of the companies that meet your search criteria. Your goal will be to “infiltrate” these companies through your network, and speak to the hiring managers (NOT the Human Resources department). Ultimately, this process will help you ...
Who’s Got Your Back?
by Suzanne Bates - Jun, 2010
“To err is human, to forgive divine.” - An Essay in Criticism, by Alexander Pope, English Poet, (1688-1744) You have to feel for Ann Curry. The Today show anchor figuratively tripped and fell during her commencement speech at Wheaton College in Norton, MA. Oh, she was still on her feet, but the pain must have felt as searing as a bloody knee when Curry was made aware that the famous Wheaton alumni she named in her speech ...

As I turned on the national news, two "experts" were debating one of the societal issues that divide this country. For minutes their ping-ponged comments volleyed about a controversial book and a soon-to-be-released movie. Then, the commenter asked both guests if they had either read the book or seen the pre-released movie. "No," answered the first man "but I've heard from people who have." "No," answered the second, "but I...
Social Media Cannot be Taught
by Joshua Waldman - May, 2010
I was teaching a class of career advisers over the last few weeks on how to instruct their clients on the proper use of social media in their job hunt. Several of their clients lost their jobs because of inappropriate comments on Facebook. Other clients lost potential opportunities because of not having a photo on LinkedIn. Shortly after the 2nd class on Facebook Privacy, Facebook changed the privacy settings making a...
Five Ways to Sink the Interview Ship
by Mandy Marchitello - May, 2010
If you’re about to set sail on your cruise to employment, be sure to avoid these (5) areas of rough water: 1. HOW MUCH DOES THE POSITION PAY? – The job interview is not about how your needs can be met. Its about what you can do for the prospective company. Bringing up salary, health benefits, vacation or anything related to your compensation gives the impression that you are more concerned with your own needs then those of ...
How to work for a slave driver
by Elizabeth Freedman - May, 2010
How do you know if you work for a Slave Driver? Easy – he’s the boss who likes to schedule meetings on a Saturday afternoon, who wants to review your memo at 7:00 am on a Monday morning, and doesn’t seem to bat an eye about calling you on your vacation to discuss an upcoming project. Hard working? Sure, but the Slave Driver takes it to a scary new level, where it seems there is little else that matters more to him than work – ...
Your American Idol “Moment” In Your Job Interview!
by Harry Urschel - May, 2010
My family and I have been ‘American Idol’ fans the last couple of years, watching the contestants try to give their best performances week after week. It’s been fun to watch, but enlightening as well to see the work and effort they have to put in to try to become the winner. Often, the judges will talk about the importance of having a “moment”. They are referring to having a performance that rises above the others by connec...
Unforgettable Hires – Tattletales From The Principal
by Amanda Guralski - May, 2010
Stories too unbelievable to be true, too entertaining to miss! “You don’t know what you got until you got it!” I want you to imagine a feminine (and pretty) version of Marlon Brando playing the Godfather. She was a Maltese nun who wore black kneesocks under the long skirt of her habit and she hired me to teach English at a Catholic high school in 1976—after I insisted on having her interview me. Originally when I spo...
