  Is My Personality Killing My Chances?
by Rob Taub - Sep, 2010
If you feel your enthusiasm and focus on being the best you can be, either in an interview or on the job, may be working against you, you may want to rein in your enthusiasm and moderate your intensity to some degree. Nevertheless, and more often than not, it is a matter of developing good communication sense. Is my personality killing my chances? "Communication skills" and "communication sense" are not the same. Good co...
 
  Job Search Tips for Multicultural Job Seekers
by Barbara Safani - Sep, 2010
I just returned from the National Resume Writers’ Association annual conference where I heard career professionals Murray Mann and Makini Harvey speak about multicultural recruiting. There is a great opportunity for multicultural candidates to embrace their diversity and showcase their differences to hiring managers in an effort to build a strong diversity brand and be found for current openings. Here are some of my key takeaw...
 
  A Simple “Thank You” Goes a Long Way
by Kathy Bornheimer - Sep, 2010
This subject was addressed in earlier publications (Creative Materials for Job Search and The Resume; Just Part of the Package). Since the publication of those works use of technology and Social Networking (Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, etc.) has increased greatly. So, let’s look at this again. People love to be acknowledged and recognized for what they do or have done. This would include an interview, providing you with a ref...
 
  7 Overused and Worn-Out Phrases to Avoid on Your Resume
by Laura Smith-Proulx - Sep, 2010
If you’ve constantly looked at other resumes to get ideas, borrowing words here and there, you might find that employers are on to your game. Weary of reading the same phrases over and over again, hiring managers are starting to expect more from top candidates who want to stand out in the crowded job market. Here are 7 phrases that appear far too often on resumes, with recommendations on how to improve your wording for a s...
 
  How to Create a Powerful Leadership Resume by Quantifying Achievements
by Laura Smith-Proulx - Sep, 2010
Trying to tell employers the story of a long and successful executive career on your resume? Unfortunately, describing yourself as a seasoned, skilled, or experienced leader won’t cut it as much as showing the results of what you’ve done. Quantifying the results of your work, especially when it comes to the bottom line, will tell companies why they can count on you to produce similar gains for them, and will underscore your...
 
  Is Your Career Goal Realistic?
by Laura Smith-Proulx - Sep, 2010
If you’re not gaining the response you want from your job hunt, there can be several reasons: lack of hiring in your desired field, a watered-down resume that doesn’t represent your skills, shotgun job-search tactics like applying to every job you see, or an over-the-top, unrealistic goal for your next position. The latter situation can occur when you’re unsure how your skills tie into different rungs on the career ladder,...
 
  6 Common Sense Job Search Tips
by Lindsey Pollak - Sep, 2010
Last week’s post, “5 Simple But Brilliant Job Interview Strategies,” generated a lot of feedback, particularly from recruiters who told me how often job seekers make seemingly obvious mistakes such as spelling a recruiter’s name incorrectly. This reminded me of the fact that, as Voltaire famously said, “Common sense is not so common.” So today I wanted to share some additional seemingly simple career tips that many job seek...
 
  It’s 2010…Do You Know Where Your Digital Footprint Is?
by Barbara Safani - Sep, 2010
I’m headed out to Dallas to present a hands-on workshop on social media strategies for job seekers to my colleagues at this year’s National Resume Writers’ Association Conference. Resumes are an important marketing tool, but I believe that a resume is naked without a corresponding social media strategy. Over 90% of recruiters perform Internet searches on candidates before making a hiring decision, and more than half of empl...
 
  How to Protect Your Career if a Tornado Hits
by Barbara Safani - Sep, 2010
Last week a tornado ripped through parts of Queens, New York. New Yorkers aren’t exactly used to tornadoes and the event really took us by surprise. The storm passed through the neighborhood where I grew up and I still have many friends and family there. Several of them posted pictures of the storm’s aftermath on Facebook to capture the devastation. One friend shared a picture of a weeping willow tree that had been broken...
 
  5 Simple But Brilliant Job Interview Strategies
by Lindsey Pollak - Sep, 2010
In a recent blog post I outlined some of the biggest job seeker mistakes to avoid, based on my own experience hiring a paid intern. Today, I’ll share some simple but impactful tactics you should employ to help you land the job you want. 1. Spell the recruiter or hiring manager’s name right.
