  A Little Good Job Market News for a Change
by Wendy Enelow - May, 2011
I just received an update from Indeed.com on current employment trends by industry and city. (Indeed.com is a job site that will search job sites, newspapers, associations and company career pages for you.) Their analysis shows that 10 out of 13 industries which they track generated more job postings in April than they did in any other month so far this year. Among the notable trends were a 25% quarterly growth in Transp...
 
  Action Is Essential To Career Success
by Deborah Brown-Volkman - May, 2011
Are you working on your career goals regularly or just thinking about them? Are you moving forward a little bit every day or waiting for the right time to begin? Goals don’t get realized on their own. They get completed and achieved when you are working on them. Work on your goals and you will reach them. Work on something else and your goals will take a back seat. Nothing great happens in your career without your activ...
 
  Align Your Career for the Best Culture Fit
by Debra Wheatman - May, 2011
As a job seeker, it is important to look not only at the role you will be playing, but where you will be playing it. You don’t want to land in the wrong sandbox. The importance of a good cultural fit and positive office environment should not be treated as the step child. Accepting a job within an organization that is not aligned with your style can turn into a nightmare. (Think Cinderella’s coach turning back into a pumpki...
 
  Are Career Objectives on Résumés History?
by Debra Wheatman - May, 2011
Dear Deb, Q. I have been looking at résumé samples on the internet and many of them have Objectives. I was told that Objectives are no longer used on résumés. Now I am confused. Is it true that Career Objectives are history? - D.P, Los Angeles, CA A. While there are times that a candidate will want to convey specific information about what he is seeking in a job, it is definitely better to keep the focus on what the co...
 
  Career lessons from a royal wedding
by Miriam Salpeter - May, 2011
Did you get up to watch the royal wedding? I did! I’m a royal watcher from way back. Unlike the last royal weddings I arose early to view, this time, I am thinking of the career lessons from the story. Everyone seems to be making a major point of how Catherine and William hold the burden of the whole country — the future of England and the monarchy — on their shoulders. Can you imagine a bigger job? These are the...
 
  CIO Resumes: Mining IT Projects for Strategic Benefit
by Laura Smith-Proulx - May, 2011
Are you a rising star in the IT world eager for a shot at the CIO role? Ascending from IT Director or VP takes more than just showing how you’ve leveraged the technology itself: you’ll need to first put yourself in the C-suite on paper. As described by my recent article in ComputerWorld, most would-be technology executives stumble when it comes to resume writing at the CIO level. Transitioning your value proposition to...
 
  Do You Really Want to Use THAT LinkedIn Photo?
by Laura Smith-Proulx - May, 2011
Some time ago, I ran across a LinkedIn picture of a job seeker who was holding a very specific political sign over her head. In bright letters. In shorts (and no, they did NOT become her). Curious about this phenomenon, I surveyed my fine resume-writing, coaching, and careers industry colleagues at Career Directors International on the subject of inappropriate LinkedIn photographs. As a result, I came away with a...
 
  Don't Apply Just Once
by Laura Smith-Proulx - May, 2011
Planning to apply to that hot job you just found online? Take it a step further with some competitive research that can put you first in line (but at another company). Here’s the idea: when companies post a position, they might be hiring from within their network – looking at suppliers, competitors, vendors, and any other organizations within their sphere of influence for that perfect candidate. If they follow through...
 
  How to Explain Being Fired
by Debra Wheatman - May, 2011
Dear Deb, Q. I was fired from my last job because of a conflict I had with the manager. He did something that I felt was unethical. When I found out, I went over his head and told his superior. He was able to twist the situation and next thing you know, I got the boot. I have decided not to take the company to court; but I was wondering what your thoughts are on how to best explain this during an interview. J.D, Houston...
 
  Résumé Help - Information Technology Manager
by Debra Wheatman - May, 2011
Today our Résumé Help reviews the résumé of a candidate in the Information Technology space. George is a strong candidate; and some of the information on his résumé is quite compelling. George has overused bullets throughout the document. This detracts from the readability. Most hiring managers and recruiters will skip bullets beyond a certain point. George also uses the first person, which is not appropriate for a résumé...
