Two Strategies for Combating Ageism on Your LinkedIn Profile Photo
by Joshua Waldman - Aug, 2012
Speaking at the Engineering Symposium in Portland a few years ago, I had two conversations back to back that were exactly the same. Now, I wasn’t surprised, when speaking to a group of 100 engineers, that ALL of them were much smarter than I am. I also wasn’t surprised to see many baby-boomers in the audience. So the conversations I had after my presentation were expected. Each person who came up to me afterward expres...

The best way to ensure you get the most out of your networking experience is to keep close tabs on your current networking buddies, along...
Painless ways to control your online reputation
by Miriam Salpeter - Jul, 2012
Many job-seekers underestimate how important it is to have an online presence—a digital footprint to help convince potential hiring managers that they are right for the job. There is no question a person's online reputation makes a big difference for job-search success. But ironically, the worst outcome of having a recruiter search for you on the Web would be if he or she found nothing at all. In a digital age, having noth...
Utilizing your networking connections pays off!
by Hallie Crawford - Jun, 2012
I am very excited that my career coaching client, Justin, recently landed a job interview. He has a background in financial services, moved to Atlanta over a year ago from Boston to get a fresh start on his life and career. He’s looking to transition into a completely new industry, lobbying, politics and public relations. This interview was for a position in that field. Because this is a new field for him, it’s especially exci...
Executives: Rebuild your network BEFORE you need it
by Louise Garver - Jun, 2012
When executives land a new job and are out of the job search cycle, often they drop the active networking that helped get them that new job. While LinkedIn, Facebook and other business networks offer some ongoing online connections, they don’t provide the personal touch that is necessary to maintain a network. You never know when you will need to reach out to those connections again. Often people feel awkward reconnecting...

Of the new sections to your profile, pay particular attention to these four: Skills Certifica...
Don’t just network – Network strategically
by Hallie Crawford - Jun, 2012

Navigating the Networking Nightmare
by Louise Garver - May, 2012
The importance of networking has not diminished, no matter what you think you’ve heard. Online networking associated with social media like LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter have certainly moved into the networking arena and taken a strong hold, but need to be kept in perspective when looking at the whole networking dynamics. Face-to-face or personal networking is still extremely effective and necessary when searching for a new p...
How to Have a Healthy Job Search Network
by Georgia Adamson - May, 2012
A successful job search can depend heavily on having a healthy network. However, you won’t have one until you build it, and you won’t have it for long unless you nourish or sustain it! Note: Sustain means to “strengthen or support physically or mentally,” and that’s as critical for a healthy job search network as it is for anything else you expect to be–and remain–productive for you. When I started thinking about this topic,...
3 quick ways to improve your LinkedIn profile
by Laura Smith-Proulx - May, 2012
When you first joined LinkedIn, it made sense to fill in just enough facts to get your Profile active and allow you to connect with others. However, if it’s been a few months and you still have a bare-bones Profile, it probably won't generate results for your job search. Even if it does attract visitors, they’ll quickly leave to find someone more interesting. The reality about LinkedIn is this: it’s an amazing job sear...
