As I turned on the national news, two "experts" were debating one of the societal issues that divide this country. For minutes their ping-ponged comments volleyed about a controversial book and a soon-to-be-released movie. Then, the commenter asked both guests if they had either read the book or seen the pre-released movie. "No," answered the first man "but I've heard from people who have." "No," answered the second, "but I...
Social Media Cannot be Taught
by Joshua Waldman - May, 2010
I was teaching a class of career advisers over the last few weeks on how to instruct their clients on the proper use of social media in their job hunt. Several of their clients lost their jobs because of inappropriate comments on Facebook. Other clients lost potential opportunities because of not having a photo on LinkedIn. Shortly after the 2nd class on Facebook Privacy, Facebook changed the privacy settings making a...
Five Ways to Sink the Interview Ship
by Mandy Marchitello - May, 2010
If you’re about to set sail on your cruise to employment, be sure to avoid these (5) areas of rough water: 1. HOW MUCH DOES THE POSITION PAY? – The job interview is not about how your needs can be met. Its about what you can do for the prospective company. Bringing up salary, health benefits, vacation or anything related to your compensation gives the impression that you are more concerned with your own needs then those of...
How to work for a slave driver
by Elizabeth Freedman - May, 2010
How do you know if you work for a Slave Driver? Easy – he’s the boss who likes to schedule meetings on a Saturday afternoon, who wants to review your memo at 7:00 am on a Monday morning, and doesn’t seem to bat an eye about calling you on your vacation to discuss an upcoming project. Hard working? Sure, but the Slave Driver takes it to a scary new level, where it seems there is little else that matters more to him than work –...
Your American Idol “Moment” In Your Job Interview!
by Harry Urschel - May, 2010
My family and I have been ‘American Idol’ fans the last couple of years, watching the contestants try to give their best performances week after week. It’s been fun to watch, but enlightening as well to see the work and effort they have to put in to try to become the winner. Often, the judges will talk about the importance of having a “moment”. They are referring to having a performance that rises above the others by connec...
Unforgettable Hires – Tattletales From The Principal
by Amanda Guralski - May, 2010
Stories too unbelievable to be true, too entertaining to miss! “You don’t know what you got until you got it!” I want you to imagine a feminine (and pretty) version of Marlon Brando playing the Godfather. She was a Maltese nun who wore black kneesocks under the long skirt of her habit and she hired me to teach English at a Catholic high school in 1976—after I insisted on having her interview me. Originally when I spo...

by Heather Mundell - May, 2010
The Career Collective, a group of career coaches, resume writers and other job search professionals, are posting today about how you can prepare now for job interviews. Follow us on Twitter at #careercollective.

Image in the Work Place
by Valerie Sokolosky - May, 2010
How can have an image that is professional and know what is expected and respected in the environment you are in? Your professional presence includes three things – your visual image (dress), your appropriate behaviors (business etiquette) and your social savvy (communicating effectively internally and externally to build a powerful network). As for dress – the simple answer is to dress for your clients…in a way that sho...
Zero to Hired in 30 Days with Guerrilla Networking
by Kevin Donlin - May, 2010
If you’re in the job market today, you know that the shortest route to employment is often...non-existent. You email your resume in response to a job posting. Then wait. Email to follow up. Wait. Get a phone interview. Wait to hear back from the employer. Etc. What a long, strange trip it can be -- if you do what everyone else is doing. But what if you blaze your own trail and make your own rules? That’s what “guer...
The Power of Keeping Your Promises
by Andy Robinson - May, 2010
How effective are you at keeping the promises and commitments you make - those commitments you make to others and those commitments you make to yourself? The cost you pay for not keeping your promises may not seem like much at the time, but the true cost is a cumulative cost, a cost that, over time, will significantly erode (1) the trust others place in you, (2) your personal integrity, (3) your self-esteem, (4) your self-c...
