With more than 14 million Americans currently looking for work, it is definitely a buyer’s market out there. Companies understandably want to hire the best candidates they can find. With so many people to choose among, businesses are looking beyond black-and-white credentials such as education and experience to identify prospective employees who bring something more to the table, such as basic common sense.

How having your own website helps you
by Miriam Salpeter - Jun, 2011
I always think one of the most frustrating aspects of job search is believing you’ve “done everything,” but aren’t finding an opportunity. I’ve never met a job seeker who actually has “done everything,” though, which I think is good news! Most people are very focused on out-dated tools and spend a disproportionate percentage of their time doing the same thing, over and over, without different results. There are so many grea...
How to Get a New Job Using Social Media
by Debra Wheatman - Jun, 2011
Did you know that 85% of available jobs are never advertised? Yes, it’s true. According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, only 15% of today’s career opportunities ever make it to the job boards. And – when they do get advertised, the competition is fierce. So why do so many job seekers spend so much time searching job boards for work? My guess is that it is the path of least resistance. It is easier to sit back and wai...
Social media: So what’s the point?
by Dawn Bugni - Jun, 2011
I don’t know about you, but part of my ability to learn new things comes through understanding the “why” behind a given task or project. I better visualize the steps needed to reach the goal when I know why I’m doing something. I want to understand the end benefit. My personal need leads me to share with you the whys behind why you want (dare I say, need) to incorporate social media into your job search and career growth strat...
You Have to Put Yourself Out There
by Norine Dagliano - Jun, 2011
Many years ago, when I was between my first and second marriage, I found a delightful little book entitled The Divorced Woman’s Guide to Meeting New Men. The basic premise of the book was that you need to “put yourself out there”. Go where single people go; talk about subjects single people talk about; dress and act like a person who is interested in a new relationship. Not only did the book contain all kinds of great “network...
Brand Story in a Social Media World
by Walter Akana - Jun, 2011
At the invitation of Sarah Behunek, Director of Alumni Relations, I had the privilege of doing a video shoot, with Tonya Riggs Clement, for the University of Colorado Leeds Business School. In case you don't know who she is, Tonya is one of the Everest Peace Climbers. In fact, she’s the twentieth American woman to scale Everest, and the fifth of just nine American women to have reached the top via the treacherous North Rid...

by Joan Runnheim Olson - Jun, 2011
After a networking meeting, it's important to follow up with a thank you letter. Start out by thanking the individual with whom you met. State the specific advice and leads you were given. Say you will keep in touch and do keep in touch! Add the individual to your contact management system. Follow up with your network every month with an update on your search, pass along an article or other piece of information the indivi...
Networking: Anywhere, Anytime
by Joan Runnheim Olson - Jun, 2011
I'm always touting the importance of networking and try to practice what I preach. I've been flying across the country presenting worshops and try to strike up a conversation with whomever is sitting next to me on the airplane. Of course, I try to gauge whether or not they're open to talking. If they whip out their book and don't exchange pleasantries, I leave them alone. On a recent trip to Lansing, Michigan, I sat next to a ...
