Three Ways To Bring Your Resume Up To Par With Your Career
by Laura Smith-Proulx - Jan, 2010
If you’ve been busy ascending the career ladder, your resume may have lost the true story of your brand and qualifications. This isn’t a problem, of course, until you‘re looking for a new job. That's when employers won't be able to see the meaning behind your achievements or figure out what you’re really offering. If your resume doesn't capture your current status, you'll need to give it a fresh look and personality that...
How to Organize Your Contact Network for Success
by Andy Robinson - Jan, 2010
All to often I find that my coaching clients, faced with an impending job change -- voluntary or involuntary -- realize very quickly that their contact network is "stale" and rather shallow. It is MUCH easier to maintain and nourish your network on an ongoing basis rather than play "catch-up" when you find yourself in need of help from others. Your network of business, professional and personal contacts is the most valuable...
Why Attend Professional Conferences?
by Wendy Enelow - Jan, 2010
No matter which profession conference you attend, always be crystal-clear about the value of conference participation and how you can optimize your results. 1. PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT. There's nothing better than learning new things that you can begin to use the minute you get back to your office. Bottom line, that's what conferences are intended to do - introduce you to new concepts, strategies, innovations, knowledge, c...
Ten Tips for Playing Well With Others at Work
by Karen Burns - Jan, 2010
Who would you rather work with: a genius star performer who’s an incredible pain in the you-know-what or a “merely” competent worker who’s a breeze to get along with? Your coworkers think so, too. Scary thought: You probably spend more hours of the day with your work colleagues than with any other group of human beings. And the great majority of the time you don’t even get to choose them. You all have different backgroun...
Dress To Get The Job!
by Harry Urschel - Jan, 2010
From time to time I get asked about what’s appropriate to wear to a job interview, networking meeting, or other event. The answer varies based on the circumstances and type of position. The key to keep in mind at any time, however, is that first impressions do matter and dressing appropriately and professionally is a prime component of that first impression. The way you dress can tell someone a lot about you: • Do you...
Out Of Work For Over A Year? How To Bounce Back
by Deborah Brown-Volkman - Jan, 2010
It happens to the best of us. You hit a bump in the rocky road of your career and find yourself out of work for longer than you'd like. Being out of work for an extended period of time does more damage than just a gap in your resume. It affects your self esteem, how you view yourself, and what you believe you can bring to the table. Everyone has doubts at some point in their career; this is your time. Know that you can...
Suffering from Resumophobia? A Remedy for Job Seekers
by Dawn Lennon - Jan, 2010
The dreaded resume! Every job seeker desperately needs one but no one wants to write one. Why? Because it’s agony. The irony is that we fear our resume—the very thing that is our entry ticket to the job we want. Since we resist the things we fear, we put off writing it or suffer major distress when we must. Our concern: “What if my resume isn’t good enough!” Our “resumophobia” has three main causes: • Frustrating unce...
A 10-Part Rx for Hiring Better People in 2010
by Lou Adler - Jan, 2010
Over the past year, I’ve been making the case that the best people – the top-third of your future workforce – won’t look for jobs, nor decide which one to take, based on the primary sourcing processes you now use. Making matters worse, traditional behavioral and competency interviewing are not designed to differentiate between the best and least best of your fully-qualified candidates, even if you can find them. To address the...
The Softer Side: Toning Up Your Soft Skills
by Amanda Guralski - Jan, 2010
Why Gen Yers are lacking old-fashioned people skills, and what we can do about it I recently saw the film Up In The Air. Besides being a lovely excuse to stare at George Clooney for two hours, it also provoked me to think about Generation Y and their “soft skills” (skills like manners, friendliness; basically, what makes you a nice person to work with), or lack thereof. These musings were due to two reasons: first, the movi...
Take the Hit and Keep Playing
by Kris Parfitt - Jan, 2010
What’s the size of a baseball, the weight of a grapefruit and can knock you to the ground at 50 mph? My beau, Dan, was an all-star lacrosse player in high school and college and has been playing the game since he was a kid, he still plays. One of my favorite stories he tells is also one of the best analogies to how we deal with failure, rejection or when we are confronted by something that stops us in our tracks. When yo...
