  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...
 
  Résumé Help – Business Management Candidate
by Debra Wheatman - May, 2011
Today we are showcasing the résumé of candidate who does not have a clear path in terms of his work history. He included a summary, which I omitted so we can focus on the Experience section of his résumé. He neglected to create a concise headline and the summary he has written does not steer the reader in any specific direction. As a result, I am left wondering what this candidate is interested in doing. He put his Educatio...
 
  Take Responsibility For Your Career
by Deborah Brown-Volkman - May, 2011
Who do you fault if something goes wrong in your career? Yourself or someone around you? How about if no one is to fault, but someone is responsible? How about if the responsible person is you? Most people don’t like to take responsibility. First of all, it’s not fun. Second, responsibility forces you to look deep inside yourself to assess and reassess your life and career, which is also not fun. Finally, responsibility...
 
  The employer didn’t get back to me. What should I do?
by Wendy Enelow - May, 2011
It seems that 99% of the time, employers say they will get back to you within a certain time frame, and then they don’t. There are two possible reasons for this: 1. They are short-staffed and just can’t get all the decision-makers together to make a hiring decision, so they haven’t decided who to hire yet; or they are still checking people’s references and waiting to hear back from the references before a decision is made...
 
  Want That Executive Job? Don't Write Your Own Resume
by Laura Smith-Proulx - May, 2011
Here’s a common refrain that I’ve heard from budding C-level executives: “I wrote my own resume a few years back, but I can see that it’s just not working now. I can't get anyone to respond at the right level!" An overwhelming majority of aspiring and current executive job hunters (and I mean literally 80%+ of the people that I talk with) cannot position themselves properly in a resume, and here’s why: Buzzwords and pro...
 
  Don't Add to Graduation Stress by Asking These Questions
by Marcia Robinson - May, 2011
We are fast approaching commencement season where new grads and families will celebrate accomplishments. Although graduates are all smiles on the outside, there is a certain level of graduation stress bubbling just below the surface. This graduation stress comes from the anticipation and anxiety about finishing coursework, wrapping up campus business and planning for the future. As you participate in graduation celebrations th...
 
  6 Social Media Mistakes to Avoid While Job Seeking
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - May, 2011
For many job seekers, the Internet presents two very different worlds. One consists of hanging out with friends via social networking, and the other focuses on the seriousness of a job search. Having the worlds collide could result in the playful social media environment posing problems for a job search since many employers conduct online research to determine candidate eligibility. This is why, if you’re looking for work...
 
  Having No College Degree Doesn’t Mean You’re Not a Qualified Candidate
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - May, 2011
Are you currently seeking a professional job but don’t have a college degree? If so, you are not alone. According to a recent study conducted by The Chronicle of Higher Education, only 27.5 percent of adults in the United States have a degree. This means there are a lot of people competing for professional jobs but lack the credentials some employers desire. But just because you don’t have a degree doesn’t mean you aren’...
