Taking a Conversational Approach to Writing Your Resume
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Jul, 2012
Oftentimes, writing a resume can be difficult because we have a hard time connecting on a personal level to what we’re writing. While we may relate to the skills we possess, we often take a bit of a mechanical approach when delivering the message. A great way to begin the process of drafting your resume without getting caught in robotic writing is to try taking a conversational approach. By envisioning that you’re speaking...
What’s your excuse? “I don’t have time …”
by Dawn Bugni - Jul, 2012
Today I tweeted: #Jobseekers: If you don’t make yourself a priority, no one else will. Won’t “find” & can’t “make” time. DEDICATE time to reach your goals. "Whatever Clock" from uncommongoods.com after a caller shared with me they: hated their current job, needed a resume to launch a new search, but “didn’t have time” to work on a new resume or search for a new position. (“Couldn’t they just send me what they had...
Consciousness in the Workplace
by Wendy Adams - Jul, 2012
OK, so this is not exactly what you would expect to see on a serious job board, however before you tune out…consider this. Your work comprises more dedicated time that all other activities save sleeping. My bet is that sleeping comes second if you are like most Americans. Today, I read an obscure posting online. In summary, the author was working 40 hours a week, making decent raises (5% or better) and comfortable in his...
Are Employers Spying on You with Facebook?
by Joshua Waldman - Jul, 2012
Facebook’s privacy issues have come and gone in past months. With their recent release of the “groups” feature, we now have more control over who can see what. But is that enough? Or better yet, is technology the answer to a fundamentally human problem? For me, the issue is the use of Facebook in the job search. Probably the most controversial question I get is, “Can I use Facebook in my job search?” Certainly, when yo...
Are you in touch with your dream job regularly?
by Hallie Crawford - Jul, 2012
I was talking with my career coaching client, Chris, recently. He was telling me that for a long time over the years, he would get started on his dream career path, then stop again. He wants to be a comedian and momentum would be built up from him attending a comedy show or doing a stand up act in LA (this guy will be successful, he’s already had many great shows!) but he’d come home to Atlanta again and lose the drive to move...
Bad Job Search Experience: Ignored by Employers
by Georgia Adamson - Jul, 2012
Conducting a job search is hard enough if you get an acknowledgment when you submit your resume for an open position and then don’t hear anything more after that. Not getting any response at all from the employer adds insult to the injury. You probably realize, if you think about it logically, that companies can receive a huge volume of resumes when they advertise a position. However, you also probably can’t help thinking, “Th...

Bumps In The Road Can Hurt Your Chances
by Bob Roth - Jul, 2012
The search for employment is not something that you do during the second semester of your senior year. Preparation for your senior year job search begins when you enter college and does not stop. Warning: When you are unprepared, the bumps in the road are bigger and more surprising. Because employers look at the following areas, students must look for ways to smooth the bumps: Clear Career Direction - An early but thor...

by Nan S. Russell - Jul, 2012
It feels great at the end of a workday to know you've made progress on a mounting to-do list, resolved a persistent problem, dealt with a difficult challenge, or accomplished an important objective. Yet, too often we get to the end of a day and haven't felt feelings of satisfaction, accomplishment, or progress at work, at least not as much as we'd like. Instead, frustration, bureaucracy, and unresponsiveness creep in to th...
