  Career Success, Not a Failure
by Georgia Adamson - Dec, 2012
I once read this saying: “You never fail until you stop trying.” That pretty much sums up my outlook and fits well into the article that inspired today’s blog post. Most of us have no idea how to predict the future–even if some of you can make fairly good educated guesses–so we have no idea what might lie around the next bend in the road, either in life or in our career. Yet you might find yourself feeling like a failure becau...
 
  Everything but the kitchen sink in your resume
by Hallie Crawford - Dec, 2012
Many people want to include everything they have done on their resume. Whether it’s their first job, details of every position they’ve had, or even where they attended high school. This can be overkill. You only want to highlight relevant experience because you may lose the recruiter or the employer who is looking at your resume. Don’t get lost in the shuffle. It isn’t important to go back to what high school you attended...
 
  Five Reasons A Cover Letter Is More Important Than You Think
by Cathy Eng - Dec, 2012
These days, the professional cover letter has taken a backseat to its much more popular cousin, the resume. Although it is often seen as stuffy, antiquated, and even frivolous, the cover letter actually has the power to establish the all-important first impression (at least for employers that accept them). And what you put in that letter could be the catalyst that sets you apart and gets you an interview. Though many peopl...
 
  How To Annoy A Hiring Manager
by Cathy Eng - Dec, 2012
“What makes you want to work for us?” “What was a challenge you were met with and how did you approach it?” “Do you have any questions you would like to ask me?” Lack of preparation to answer these deliberate interview questions is among the top corporate hiring manager and recruiter pet peeves. There are very specific reasons interviewers ask you these questions and how you answer them says a lot about you. Weak o...
 
  Let Focus And Passion Pave Your Career Path!
by Cathy Eng - Dec, 2012
As an executive resume writer, I often speak with clients who are either at a career crossroads out of their choosing or by circumstance (e.g. recession, life change, etc.), and these clients are simply looking for an answer to the toughest career question: What should I do? While a simple question, the answer is certainly different for everyone and can vary based on skills, experiences, and passion. Focusing on passion, I...
 
  Make Your Body Language Work for You During an Interview
by Miriam Salpeter - Dec, 2012
You've been practicing what to say at an interview, but have you considered what signals your body language is sending? Research suggests up to 93 percent of communication isn't transmitted via our words, but is broadcast through our actions and attitude. Patti Wood, author of SNAP: Making the Most of First Impressions, Body Language, and Charisma, suggests the following tips to help you wow your interviewer: Palm-to-pa...
 
  Resume Writing: It’s All About What You Leave Out
by Louise Fletcher - Dec, 2012
I’m taking an art class at the moment and one of the lessons being drummed into us is that what you leave out of a painting or drawing is just as important as what you include. As I was working on a landscape sketch last night, and making the decision to ignore a whole line of trees, it struck me that the exact same principle applies to resume writing or creating online profiles on sites like LinkedIn. You could tell e...
 
  Sales and Communications - Connecting Through Empathy
by Dr. Maynard Brusman - Dec, 2012
Empathy allows us to understand others’ feelings, thoughts and experiences. Customers must sense that you care about their needs. Studies show, however, that our sense of empathy is eroding. The Institute for Social Research at the University of Michigan has collected data for more than 30 years, and researchers have found that young adults are 40 percent less empathetic than their counterparts in 1979. The ability to empathi...
 
  Six Steps To A Polished & Relevant Resume
by Cathy Eng - Dec, 2012
Giving your resume a polished, professional look and feel proves to employers that you are detail-oriented, take your job search seriously, and know what it takes to stand out. Sloppy or boring resumes (e.g. too much white space, generic wording, errors, etc.) are the ones that end up lost somewhere in HR or in the trash. But, there are several steps to make your resume stand out as polished and professional. Here are just som...
 
  Soft skills help you get the job
by Miriam Salpeter - Dec, 2012
Landing a job requires a lot more than just the right degree, experience or series of technical skills. “Soft” skills, otherwise known as emotional intelligence, may make a difference between an employee who can do the job and one who does it well. Soft skills include: leadership, written and verbal communication, problem solving, motivation, interpersonal skills and creativity. They aren’t usually skills we learn in school (a...
