  Can’t all my cover letters be the same?
by Julie Walraven - May, 2012
NO! You can’t write the same cover letter for every job. It then is just an extra document, extra page, with no extra information.

The confusion about what a cover letter is and is not never...

Even executives don’t get it right every time. You thought this was a good move and even the research indicated you were a perfect fit for the position. But, as the job unfolded, you are no longer enamored with the position or company. Richard (from a famous Shakespheare play) might say, “Now is the winter of my discontent.” 5 signs that point to discontent: 1. Feel like an outsider? Holding an executive role in any or...

  Is Your Résumé Up to Speed?
by Debra Wheatman - May, 2012
In most situations, your résumé will be read on a screen. It could be a 17-inch screen and it could be a 2-inch screen. Hiring managers and recruiters will make instantaneous decisions about which résumé they would like to save for consideration and which to delete. The time allocated to make that decision is significantly reduced in today’s world owing to the nature of how we behave when going through emails or documents onli...
 
  IT TAKES TIME
by Nan S. Russell - May, 2012
The story goes that after one of Ludwig van Beethoven's performances, several people were offering him their congratulations, when one woman commented, "I wish God had bestowed me with such genius." "It isn't genius, madam, nor is it magic." Beethoven replied. "All you have to do is practice on your piano eight hours a day for 40 years." That's not the message most people want to hear. Most prefer buying the magazine wh...

This data can be decoded by QR Readers, which are widely available as Smartphone apps. Take a picture of the QR Code with the phone’s camera, and the embedded information instantly appears.

  Résumé Help: Is That “Other Information” Overkill?
by Debra Wheatman - May, 2012
Recently I saw a woman walk into a store with excessive accessories. Maybe it was the red rose clip in her hair, or it could have been the 1980s-style bangles and matching chandelier earrings. It was a sight to behold. If she had stopped with the earrings, she would have looked terrific. Under the barrage of bling was a really cute dress. The same is true on a résumé. You get to a point where you have the perfect amount...
