  Stop with the bad resume advice
by Dawn Bugni - Oct, 2011
I worked with a client recently. We spoke on the phone several times before she engaged my services. I had also provided a few samples, so she knew the type of document I produced and was confident in my capabilities and knowledge of best practices for this crazy, competitive job market.

  Empowering Success
by Miriam Salpeter - Oct, 2011
How often are you assuming too much? It’s something you need to think about when you’re engaged in a job hunt. There’s a plant sale in a neighborhood near where I live. I’ve been seeing signs for it. They say, “At the Kingsly Club House.” That’s the only direction or address the signs provide.
