Go with your grain
by Hallie Crawford - Feb, 2012
I recently gave a speech at the GA Tech Alumni group. They are a wonderful group of people who are really committed to finding greater fulfillment in their careers. We talked about the analogy of painted versus stained wood that I normally use in my speeches. It’s about not letting your authenticity be painted over so to speak by a coat of paint, like paint over wood. Instead, imagine that you use stain instead to bring out, o...

by Jason Stauffacher - Feb, 2012
Here are some job searching tactics to use in today’s 2012 job hunting: If you write a generic, all-purpose general resume and cover letter, it won't get read by the hiring manager at all.

It's very important to customize all of your appli...

Stop Making Career Excuses
by Deborah Brown-Volkman - Feb, 2012
Are you having a tough time in your career? If the answer is yes, know that you are not alone. Things are tough for most people. There are fewer jobs and more work for those that are employed. Workers are over-utilized and stretching themselves thin. It’s a bit crazy out there. Many people I talk to are tired and stressed out. Not ideal conditions to do your best. But sometimes you have to ask yourself, “What is really...

What are Your Valuable Core Competencies?
by Georgia Adamson - Feb, 2012
Those of us who write resumes often like to use the concept of core competencies–possibly as a keyword-rich section of its own, maybe woven into the thread of the resume through concrete examples of the competencies, or in numerous other ways. I’ve certainly done this with my clients’ resumes many times over the years, and I thought I was pretty conversant with what the concept involved. That was before I got curious and start...

by Andy Robinson - Feb, 2012
What is your "Why"? Do you have clarity on WHY you do what you do? What beliefs, cause or purpose are you driven by? What COMPELS you to do what you do for a living? Do your clients and customers know your "why"? If your why aligns with their beliefs and needs, you'll be drawn to each other as if by magic. Great companies understand this. Highly successful people embody this. My "Why" is driven by my BELIEFS,...

by Miriam Salpeter - Feb, 2012
How can you appeal to an employer? Spoon feed your resume! You would not hand an infant with no teeth a whole apple to eat; he or she wouldn’t know what to do with it. (For the uninitiated, take my word for it here. The baby may just throw it back at you and still be hungry. And crying.) Instead, you would offer applesauce and manipulate the spoon full directly into the infant’s mouth. Similarly, (see where I am going here...
How do you handle awkward moments in job interviews?
by Hallie Crawford - Feb, 2012
I was talking to a friend the other day, and she told me about her brother who went on an interview at a daycare center in Kansas and they told him during the interview they don’t typically hire men. Oops! That’s not something that’s smart for an interviewer to say (and why were they interviewing him anyway?) It’s an awkward situation for the candidate. How would you handle this? A good solution could be to simply ask them...
