  What Do I Say About Being Terminated?
by Hallie Crawford - Dec, 2013
“Have you ever been terminated from your position?” your interviewer asks you. You may fear this question because you don’t want to have to say, “Yes.” However, you may be confusing the terms layoff, resignation, and termination. If you were laid off, you have not been terminated. Being laid off from work means the employer could not afford to continue paying your salary or did not have enough work for you to do. When a...

  Brainstorming career ideas: Look outside your zip code
by Hallie Crawford - Oct, 2013
We have clients all the time who have trouble coming up with a list of things they want in a job. It’s hard to pull things out of the air sometimes, especially when most of what you come up with are things you don’t want to have instead of what you do want to have. My career coaching client Margaret in Atlanta said she had a hard time pulling ideas of what she wanted out of thin air. This is understandable, it can be diffi...

I always get questions about compensation from my clients who are in career transition and wanting to know for their career planning purposes – “Am I going to have to take a cut in salary to move into my dream job?” First, a couple of notes about discussing compensation during the interview process. I spoke with a career coaching clie...
 
  Quick resume advice: Read it backwards
by Hallie Crawford - Aug, 2013
I was talking to my career book editor, Anne, the other day. As a professional writer she has helped many people with their resume writing over the years.

One of her suggestions, was after you have edited your resume and you ha...
 
  Don’t let bad credit get in the way of your job search

I was recently honored to be featured in this US News article, How to Convince a Prospective Employer to Overlook Poor Credit. There are many obstacles people have to overcome when applying for job search and bad credit is a common concern among job seekers.
