  Don’t Be a Job Search “Idiot”!
by Georgia Adamson - May, 2015
If you’ve never made any dumb or slightly silly mistakes in a job search, congratulations! On the other hand, an occasional misstep is probably not the kiss of death unless it’s seriously stupid. Look at it this way, though: If you don’t put your best foot forward when you’re planning and conducting a job search, why should a potential employer assume that you won’t do something equally bad as an employee? To those employe...
 
  Long-Term Unemployment Challenges
by Georgia Adamson - Apr, 2015
I’ve had a few clients over the years that have gotten caught up in the Never-Never Land of long-term unemployment, and to say that it’s stressful and disturbing for them is a gross understatement. While I doubt a “magic bullet” exists that will fix the problem effortlessly, I do believe some pointers and potentially hopeful signs can be found to encourage those job seekers. Companies that Discriminate Against Long-Term Un...
 
  Company Loyalty–How Much Do You “Owe” Them?
by Georgia Adamson - Mar, 2015
The title of this post is somewhat of a trick question. When a company pays your salary, as agreed when you took the job, you probably do owe them something in return. In other words, in most cases you should deliver whatever you agreed to do in exchange for that salary. On the other hand, what if the company expects actions that are, for example, unethical or borderline illegal? Then you’re looking at possible consequences...
 
  Decisions, Decisions! How They Impact Your Career
by Georgia Adamson - Feb, 2015
Chances are good that you’ve recently made or will soon be making one or more decisions that will impact your career success, although you might not realize that if your decisions are made without looking at them from all sides first. Being clear about what you’re aiming for in terms of career results is sound advice–a good place to start. Ben Stein (an American writer, lawyer, actor and commentator) put it this way: “The firs...
 
  Your Online Brand & Reputation Management
by Georgia Adamson - Feb, 2015
By now, I think most people realize that they have a brand, whether or not they pay much attention it. However, since so much information is available about you online these days, ignoring your online brand and reputation is risky at best. How Do You Manage Your Personal Brand Online? William Arruda is widely recognized as the guru of personal branding. A recent post by Tara Kachaturoff in Arruda’s online publication,...
 
  Is Your Resume “Old News”? Think Resume Update
by Georgia Adamson - Jan, 2015
It’s the start of a new year, and you probably have a list of things you need or want to do. Looking at your resume might not be one of them unless you’re on the verge of launching a serious job search. (Some people don’t do it even then, although they should!) The fact is, any point at which you’re not in or planning a near-term job search is an excellent time to haul out your existing resume and dust off the cobwebs. For...
 
  Career Success–No Fear in 2015
by Georgia Adamson - Jan, 2015
With all that’s been going on in the world during the past months and years, you might roll your eyes at the very thought that you could pursue career success without fear this year, and it would be hard to blame you. However, I’d like to offer some encouragement with this thought: fear paralyzes; hope energizes. I know it’s easier said than done to tell you to put fear aside as you plan your career steps this year. Like yo...
 
  New Year–New Job Search?
by Georgia Adamson - Jan, 2015
Did your new year get off to a strong start? If not, don’t worry. There’s plenty of time to make a course correction. However, if you were thinking about launching a new job search this year, you’ve already missed your chance to gain early momentum (late December would have been a good time for that). As the saying goes, though, “all is not lost.” You just need to get cracking! Key Points for Your Job Search As the Greek...
 
  Is Your End-of-Year Career Plan in Good Shape?
by Georgia Adamson - Dec, 2014
The thought that no one hires toward the end of the year is a topic I’ve covered before, but I think it’s worth another quick look as Christmas and other holiday celebrations take center-stage in people’s lives. Year-End Hiring Dormant or Nearly So? Conventional wisdom often says that you might as well “hang it up” until at least the first of the new year as far as job searching or other career management activities goes...
 
  Resumes vs. Personal Introductions
by Georgia Adamson - Dec, 2014
As a professional resume writer, I have to acknowledge up front that I have a bit of bias on the subject of resumes–especially when I read (as I usually do) a column by Ask The Headhunter’s Nick Corcodillos, who basically considers resumes most suitable as garbage-can liners! In a recent post, titled “The Magic Resume Calculator: Save 95% of your job hunting time!,” Corcodillos does, however, make good points that I can agr...
