Stumped About Why You Didn’t Get Hired? Here’s the Back Story
by Dawn Lennon - Jan, 2010
Myth: The job candidate who flat out “nails” the interview gets the job. Truth: The decision about who gets the job is, well, complicated. For all the years that I was a senior manager at a Fortune 500, every time I didn’t select a candidate who thought they had the “right stuff,” I was questioned. Actually grilled! Filling job vacancies isn’t as simple as having an opening, interviewing candidates, and picking one. I...
Sell What You Have
by Mary Jeanne Vincent - Jan, 2010
A recent Networking Roundtable for job seekers held at my office included a mix of people. There were those who kept bumping into the issue of “over qualified”, and felt that age was definitely an issue that was prolonging their job search. There was a recent university graduate and a community college student, both of whom lacked in the experience category and felt they missed out on jobs because they were “under qualif...
Want To Be Recruited Through LinkedIn? Don't Make These Profile Errors
by Laura Smith-Proulx - Jan, 2010
LinkedIn, while a boon to recruiters and job hunters alike, has spawned some interesting practices in the name of the job search. If you’ve spent only a brief amount of time setting up your profile, your chances of being sought on LinkedIn for your expertise are quite remote — especially if it fails to represent your core brand value and or highlight achievements. However, you can take matters into your own hands to turn...
Branding Yourself Must Include Your Own Domain
by Joshua Waldman - Jan, 2010
Without getting into the specifics of how Google indexes stuff online, lets just say that having your full name as your domain pretty much guarantees that you will appear on a search for your name. Some examples are: http://dannycoxdidit.com/ http://pamelaslim.com/ http://chrisguillebeau.com/ Do a Google search on each of these people and their URL will be on the first page. Let’s set something straight. You...
Being Nice Does Matter in Finding Your Dream Job
by Kris Plantrich - Jan, 2010
This week was the kick off of the 9th season of American Idol. Every year I say I am not going to watch it, but somehow the show finds its way on to the screen of my television. I tell myself, just the first night… to get a feel for what this season may hold. I admit that I watched the whole show and towards the end, when there were only a few contestants left, a man entered the room for his very long awaited audition and...
What To Do If You Are Unhappy At Your Job
by Miriam Salpeter - Jan, 2010
I can’t tell you how many studies I’ve seen quoted that detail how many people are unhappy with their current jobs and will jump at the first chance to find something new once there are opportunities. Does that describe you? You’re looking to jump ship at the next opportunity? If you are lucky, opportunity will come knocking. Maybe you have a well-developed and strong network, a great LinkedIn profile (that makes it easy fo...

Downward & Onward: Leaving the CEO Position Behind
by Wendy Enelow - Jan, 2010
John Gregory had had enough. He was worn out from the constant pressures of his CEO career...the endless meetings and strategy sessions, tedious financial audits and reviews, the ongoing “helpful” interference of his board members, the pressure and the stress...it all added up to one headache after another, one challenge after another and more battles than he chose to have at this point in his life. At age 49, after 12 year...
Time Management 101: Lessons Learned The Hard Way
by Wendy Enelow - Jan, 2010
As I sat down to write this article, I thought to myself, “How odd!” For years and years, I have struggled to better manage my time, but never felt as though I was very successful. I’m always juggling my time constantly sweating as I look at all the piles and papers scattered throughout my two offices, getting up earlier and earlier to get a jump on things, and telling my son to hold on one more minute. I haven’t had the feeli...
Best Practices in Resume Writing For Veterans
by Wendy Enelow - Jan, 2010
1. Write to the future. Resume writing is not about rehashing your past history and listing what you’ve done and where. Rather, resume writing is about writing to the future, to the job that you want or the career path that you wish to pursue. This is a critical consideration throughout every phase of writing your resume and conducting your job search. Clearly define your objectives, identify the skills and qualifications you’...
