The World Is NOT A Scary Place
by Deborah Brown-Volkman - Jan, 2010
As the mother of a toddler, I go above and beyond to ensure that my son is not afraid of the world. I tell him I love him regularly, we spend quality time together, and I make sure he is safe. When he questions the world, or is afraid of something, I comfort him and tell him it's going to be ok. Then, he smiles at me and goes along his merry way. How come as adults, we don't have more people in our lives telling us that ...

How To Get Your Job Search Started
by Miriam Salpeter - Jan, 2010
In the “old days,” job seekers could put together some basic information (a resume, a cover letter and a pitch) and, with a little luck, land an opportunity. Now, not so much. People like to see optimized materials (a *good* resume isn’t good enough), a LinkedIn profile is a must, social (online) resumes are more and more common and an online presence is assumed. Not to mention use of Twitter and Facebook, both of which fuel t...

You’re Perfect for the Job, Except...
by Barbara Safani - Jan, 2010
Last year I went on multiple interviews for six different consulting assignments. It’s kind of strange to go on interviews when your profession revolves around teaching others how to interview. It’s often a humbling experience and sometimes I don’t even take my own advice. I thought I was perfect for each of these roles. But my definition of perfect didn’t always jive with the hiring manager’s. My skills were never in question...
Assessing Your Progress
by Nan S. Russell - Jan, 2010
I'm not a big fan of New Years resolutions. Sure I've made dozens of them, all with good intentions and a bit of magical thinking, believing this time the resolution will stick. Maybe a few have, but generally these wishful self-promises end up broken. And when that happens my self-esteem suffers. You see, every time you break a self-promise, your self-trust is weakened. Every time you give up on your commitments your self-...
Great References Must Be Cultivated
by Bob Roth - Jan, 2010
There is an important aspect of the senior year job search that most college students fail to appreciate, undervalue and sometimes ignore. Many students don't seem to understand that the best employers place a great deal of weight on good references. These employers won't hire someone who can't provide them with a list of people who are willing to serve as positive and enthusiastic references. The best references are resp...
Do I Need An Objective Statement On My Resume?
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Jan, 2010

In fact, using an objective statement has become a dated trend in resume writing. If you want to bring your resume and essentially your career up-to-date there...
