  How to Boost Your Self Confidence During a Job Search
by Heather Mundell - Jun, 2012
It's ironic when during a job search, just at the time when you need to feel your most confident, you're feeling your most deflated. Earlier this year I met with a client who had been searching for a new job for over five months. Although she had a full-time job, she was looking for a different one because she had been underemployed and underpaid for several years. She didn't have a supportive manager, the organization's c...
 
  How to Get the Most Out of an Informational Interview
by Heather Mundell - Jun, 2012
Many mid-career people I coach are surprised that informational interviewing is still going on for the over-25 set. If you're curious about what's happening at a certain company you're interested in, want to know what kind of experience is really needed to break into a related field, want the skinny on what other organizations you might want to target, or have any one of a thousand other career development questions, ask...
 
  How to Give an Effective Performance Review
by Heather Mundell - Jun, 2012
Most of us crave meaningful feedback at work. It's natural to want validation and acknowledgment for our accomplishments, and many of us wish we could hear constructive criticism more often to help us learn and grow. Yet the tool that organizations give managers, the dreaded performance review, is pretty universally loathed. Most managers aren't well-trained on how to give effective feedback. They forget the importance of...
 
  How To Replace Your Resume’s Overused Keywords/Phrases
by Cathy Eng - Jun, 2012
While we have good intentions when we use common phrases to describe our abilities, the fact is we are only serving to bore hiring managers and recruiters! Many of these skills - teamwork, dedication, enthusiasm - are ones that are simply expected in today’s workplace and don’t do the job of making you stand out to employers. In fact, hiring managers see them so often on resumes that they often don’t even notice them anymore....
 
  Interview Preparation: Are You Ready?
by Georgia Adamson - Jun, 2012
The phone rings, and a company you applied to wants to interview you more or less “right now.” What should you do? Ideally, start by buying yourself some think-time. That is, indicate to the caller that although you don’t have time to talk properly at the moment, you are definitely interested and would like to schedule a call or in-person interview for a later day/time. Too much is at stake to rush into the interview without a...
 
  Knock, knock: How to Write An Effective COVER LETTER that Opens Doors
by John Crant - Jun, 2012
Cover Letters are one of the most perplexing challenges for the Job Seeker. The Job Ads ask for one. The guides all suggest we send one. Why is it that so many resumes go out without a proper cover letter? (most of them may never be read, but they will be… for the right candidates) Careful taking license with what I just said: Yes, most cover letters will never be read. In a world where there are often 3–5,000 resumes se...
 
  Leverage Your Added Value as a “Job Hopper”
by Norine Dagliano - Jun, 2012
I was recently coaching a job seeker who was lamenting the fact that she has had multiple job changes over a course of five years. She attempted to minimize attention to this fact by combining positions on her résumé, not revealing that she had recently ended one job and begun another. She attempted to direct the employer’s attention to what she labeled “Summary of Qualifications”, although nowhere on the résumé did she answer...
 
  Moving Up In Your Company? YOU Need A Resume, Too!
by Cathy Eng - Jun, 2012
I have written resumes for many clients who were not moving companies and some who weren’t even moving departments – they were simply asked to present an updated resume to apply for a higher-tiered position within their company. The funny thing is they were surprised that they would even need a resume for the same company that hired them years earlier. If you are thinking of applying for a higher position in your company,...
 
  My Physical Response to Job Loss
by Norine Dagliano - Jun, 2012
Losing a job is quite an emotional experience – looking for your next opportunity leans more toward the cerebral. Until you can come to terms with the first, it is difficult to tackle the latter. I recall my last job loss more than 10 years ago as if it were yesterday. I have always had the reputation of being the logical, analytical one that doesn’t get sidetracked by the emotional aspects of life. There is some truth in...
 
  Should I Include X in My Resume?
by Louise Fletcher - Jun, 2012
This is one of the most common questions I’m asked by my clients. I write resumes designed to appeal to a specific target audience, and this means I often omit facts and information that I know won’t impress that target audience. And that can sometimes be hard to swallow. After all, if you see a first draft of your resume that omits key facts, it’s natural to ask “but shouldn’t X be included?” You worked hard for that achi...
