Finding Your Targets With LinkedIn
by Harry Urschel - Jul, 2010
Anyone who’s been using LinkedIn for their job search for a while understands the great value it can be. It’s tremendous for creating a profile in order to be found, for finding contacts at companies you are pursuing, and for preparing for an interview by learning about your interviewer and others at the organization. However, people often miss another way LinkedIn can be used to help them greatly in pursuing their job sear...
Working From the Heart? Check Your Pulse! Spirit and Drive as Brand Boosters
by Dawn Lennon - Jul, 2010
Jobs are what we make them. When we bring nothing, they become nothing. When we use them to unleash our spirit, they become an adventure. Jobs give us a chance to show what we’re made of, what we stand for, and what we care about. When we take them to heart, there’s no hiding it. We do the work with an eagerness that spills over to others. No spirit. No drive. No fun. I’ll grant that a lot of employers do all they ca...

by Dr. Maynard Brusman - Jul, 2010

One of the HR Directors asked me if I could write up some of the techniques and tools we covered in my “Emotionally Intelligent Conversations” workshop. The following are some techniques and tips you can use for having fierce conversations at work, particularly difficult conversations tha...

The Compassionate Side of Corporate Entrepreneurship
by Dee McCrorey - Jul, 2010
Most of us have heard the old saying about giving someone a fish and you feed him for a day, but teaching a person how to fish and you have fed her for a lifetime. I'm reminded of this when I see so many unemployed people right here in my own Silicon Valley sandbox as the result of company downsizing, rightsizing, restructuring, et al. Given the Bay Area's penchant for start-ups, I'm surprised that so many professionals...
...and then “shut up.”
by Dawn Bugni - Jul, 2010
Back in the late 70s, early 80s I attended a Careertrack seminar. I don’t remember the name of the seminar. I don’t really remember the exact topic, but one story the presenter shared stuck with me all these years. The presenter, (we’ll call her Sue) traveled across the US doing seminars. Because of a hectic travel schedule, Sue spent a lot of time in airports peopl e watching. One day, she noticed a woman in an absolutely...
Lessons from the Coach Seats
by Suzanne Bates - Jul, 2010
You learn a lot from the savvy traveler who has to fly coach. Of course they all carry on; and they’ve learned to stand as close to the miserable airline representative collecting boarding passes as is socially acceptable. This way they are positioned to sail forth with alacrity onto the jetway when their row is called. This is critical because it guarantees a prized overhead luggage spot - you’re two steps ahead of the v...
Improve Job Search Success - Add a Resume Objective Statement!
by Marcia Robinson - Jul, 2010
I just read a post on a new career blog where the writer proclaimed that resume objective statements are unnecessary. I don't agree! Of course I don't support resume objective statements that say nothing, but I know for sure that a resume objective is a good way to get the reader's attention. Isn't that your goal? Imagine you are in a busy HR office sifting through stacks of resumes from potential candidates for a posit...
Achieving Work Life Balance
by Hallie Crawford - Jul, 2010
Life balance is a buzzword these days for good reason. It’s a chronic issue that comes up in conversation because quite simply, life has become harder to manage. With email, Crackberry’s and everything else demanding our attention it’s no wonder we get bogged down in to-do lists and wonder at the end of the day where the time went. We’re expected to work faster and more efficiently, plus we’re more accessible than ever because...
Twitter Users Are More Likely To Get Job Interviews
by Miriam Salpeter - Jul, 2010
Do you think of Twitter like this badge describes – as a pointless exercise? It may be time to rethink! Have you ever considered the skills you use to leverage Twitter well? It is not rocket science, but it does require key abilities, and not everyone has them. Sending tweets that inspire people to read, retweet and reply requires an ability to communicate in the short form. It turns out this may be much more valuable than...
