The Seven Deadly Job Search Sins
by Louise Fletcher - Mar, 2010
If you’re looking for a job in this current climate, the bad news is that you have a lot of competition. The good news is that most of them have no idea what they’re doing. I meet a lot of job seekers during the course of my work as a professional resume writer. From executives to entry-level, I see the same mistakes over and over again. And the people making these mistakes have no clue that they could be doing better....
Why It’s a Good Thing That Job Seeking Is Not an Olympic Sport and Some Inspiring Stories
by Miriam Salpeter - Mar, 2010
It’s tough not to be inspired by the Olympic athletes. I have been keeping a running list of topics that seem like perfect “career” messages for job seekers. Without fail, they are the type of messages that have to do with “keeping your head in the game,” “persevering despite all obstacles,” “overcoming significant challenges” and “fortitude, endurance and courage.” Have you considered how many athletes are at the Olympics...

by Bob Roth - Mar, 2010
College students know that they can make themselves more appealing to employers at graduation by obtaining some experience in their field of interest. Job-related work experience can be acquired through internships, summer and part-time jobs, while attending college. Therefore, here are a few things that students can do to help them find those great jobs: Search Engines - Google Search and Yahoo Search are two of the best...
Tapping Into the Hidden Job Market
by Debra Wheatman - Mar, 2010
It is a well known fact using job boards exclusively as you conduct a job search will leave you confounded and frustrated. Sure you might be qualified for the positions for which you are applying – but posting your résumé online is like trying to find a needle in a haystack – a really, really big haystack. So what exactly is this thing called ‘the hidden job market’? The hidden job market consists of openings not directly a...
What Do Hiring Managers Want?
by Harry Urschel - Feb, 2010
As a recruiter, I was just talking to a client, a Director at a mid-size company, about a couple of positions he’s trying to fill and specifics of what he wants to see in a good candidate. I wish many of the people in my job search classes could have listened in on the conversation because he clearly answered what many job seekers want to know...“What do hiring managers really want?” Certainly, in both of the open positi...
It’s The Little Things
by Dawn Bugni - Feb, 2010
Discouraged is a difficult place to live. We all visit occasionally, but wallowing in a cesspool of negativity doesn’t solve anything. And yes. I realize that leaving “discouraged” is a lot easier said than done. This in no way is meant to diminish personal circumstance, but I do know it’s much more difficult to sell your skill set when you’ve lost confidence in you and it’s difficult to have confidence in you when you can’t s...
A Key Strategy to Standing Out In A Sea of Other Job Seekers
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Feb, 2010
What you need is a competitive advantage, something that gets the hiring manager’s attention, causes him or her to keep reading your resume, and ultimately, pick up the phone and call for the interview. How do you differentiate yourself from all the other people seeking the same opportunity? Simply put, value. WHAT VALUE DO YOU OFFER? If you were going to purchase a new laptop computer or a new car, chances are you wou...
From Survival to Revival: Getting Ready for the Recovery
by Dan King - Feb, 2010
How high will unemployment go? Has the job market hit bottom yet? How bad will it get? And when will the recovery begin? I am frequently asked these questions – and the answers are not forthcoming. The fact is, “I don’t know.” I do know that there’s no shortage of “doom and gloom” out there, and hordes of people to spread and sustain it. But I'm not willing to run with the herd. Sometimes it’s best to separate from t...
One Surefire Way to Stand Out in Your Job Search
by Louise Fletcher - Feb, 2010
Imagine if employers saw you as not just another job applicant, but as an expert in your field. Think how it would feel to point recruiters to the speech you gave at a prestigious conference or your Masters thesis on your industry. If you’re not a well-know entrepreneur or senior executive, you might think that’s just a pipe dream. But it’s not! No matter what you do for a living, the Internet makes it possible for you t...
Restoring Your Joy in Job Search
by Jacqui Barrett-Poindexter - Feb, 2010
Joy was palpable as the oversized airplane plane descended onto the tiny tropical landing strip. The pilot forcefully applied brake pressure, wings wobbled and dear, flying-averse hubby squeezed his fingers tightly into my arm as the plane safely landed. Applause erupted and a plane-FULL of passengers, many of whose travel had been delayed several days due to winter storms, were elated to finally embark on their Key West adve...
