Your Next Job Could be a Tweet Away
by Nimish Thakkar - Sep, 2010
From tweeting about office gossip to discussing dating nightmares, social media has literally redefined the way we communicate about our personal and professional lives. As a career coach and professional resume writer, I am witnessing an emerging trend: On the employment front, both job seekers and hiring managers are embracing social media with open arms.

Step up your professional development to combat economy woes
by Nimish Thakkar - Aug, 2010
Recently, I coached Nick Smith, a fascinating client, in fact, one of the most intelligent professionals I have ever met.

After a series of setbacks, he knew something was wrong but couldn’t debunk the “mystery cause” that was foiling his career goals repeatedly. During one of our coaching sessions, we finally hit the life-changing eurek...

I recently nagged a client to get her LinkedIn profile fully up and running. She emailed me the other day to say that she got an email from a recruiter within 2 days of doing it. A new survey explains why. Jobvite surveyed 600 HR and recruiting professionals across the US and found that 73% are using social media and online networks for recruitment purposes. Of those companies, 78% cited LinkedIn as a tool they used regular...
How to Make Your Job Search Fun
by Kevin Donlin - Aug, 2010
If you’re looking for a job, here’s a strange question: How much fun are you having? Not much? Well, you might want to change that. That’s the advice of former Minnesota Viking Fran Tarkenton, who suggests you try to find the fun in every task: “If it’s not fun, you’re not doing it right,” he says. Wouldn’t it be nice if you were as motivated to write your resume tomorrow as you were to play Little League or skip ...
Grow Your Career Networking Seeds Organically
by Jacqui Barrett-Poindexter - Aug, 2010
I admit, I’ve never really embraced the word, “networking,” or the idea of it. Instead, I love the concept of NetWeaving. Over at the NetWeavers International website, they promote a pay-it-forward approach and publish a creed that talks about a “shift from thinking about WIIFM (What’s in it for Me) to WIIFY (What’s in it for YOU).” As well, they discuss strategies in learning how to be a resource for others to provide informa...
Are You Headed Toward or Away?
by Christine Hassler - Aug, 2010
Our motivation is directional, impacting the results we create and the ease in which we create them. Think about when you are motivated to do something. Are you motivated more by what you want to get away from or what you want to move toward? TOWARD motivation moves us toward more of what we desire while AWAY from motivation is an attempt to get us away from circumstances/feelings that are causing discomfort. Let's consider...

A Tale of Two Networkers
by Dawn Bugni - Jul, 2010
Networking. The mere mention of the word strikes terror in the hearts of even the most seasoned professionals. For some reason, the thought of connecting with fellow human beings has become more like something we have to do, instead of something that happens naturally. What used to be pleasant conversation and sharing morphed into to-do list entries and deadlines. We set specific dates and list relevant topics for planned cont...

by Kevin Donlin - Jul, 2010
Can Twitter help you find a job? Yes. But only if you use it right. It can be a huge challenge sorting the wheat from the chaff on Twitter, where millions of updates appear daily, only a few of which contain useful job-search information.
