by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Sep, 2010
Many executives share similar career paths. One of these paths involves entering a company at a job relevant to your degree or experience, and climbing your way up the corporate ladder until you’re eventually running the place. Another path involves working for many different companies for a few years at a time, while regularly being courted away with a higher salary or greater responsibilities. Both of these career paths s...
 
  Reminding Your Network That You’re Looking
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Sep, 2010
Recently I spoke with a woman who has been looking for work for some time. She devotes a significant amount of time each week to networking activities. She said something that stood out to me: “I wake up every day and think about being unemployed, but my contacts don’t think about me until I remind them”. Remind your contacts that you’re looking All too often, those who are looking for work feel embarrassed to repeatedly...
 
  Resumes for Every Generation
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Sep, 2010
This past week I attended a presentation about Baby Boomers, Generation X-ers, and Millennials learning to communicate and work well together in the professional world. The speaker provided great tips for understanding each generation and how to effectively use their strengths to the best advantage. While the presentation focused on helping everyone work well together, I couldn’t help but think about the ramifications of wha...
 
  Subtle Ways to Tell Your Story in Your Resume
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Sep, 2010
A frequent theme of our blogs is limiting your resume to information that’s truly relevant to the position for which you’re applying. You should feel free to leave off your high school job serving fast food or your college job working retail if you have years of subsequent work experience. Also, listing only the achievements from your previous jobs can actually omit an important component of your career: your personal story....
 
  The Best Time to Write a Resume
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Sep, 2010
Imagine for a moment that you’ve just heard the dreaded words, “We’re going to have to let you go.” A lot of people have heard this phrase over the last several years, and most have probably reacted with some degree of panic: How am I going to pay my bills? Where am I going to go? What am I going to do? Obviously, this frame of mind is not a great launching point for your next job. Writing an effective resume and cover...

Did you know that LinkedIn now allows you to follow all the activity related to a particular company? You do this by searching for the company on the site and clicking “Follow Company”. This st...
 
  Using Networking Groups to Your Advantage
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Sep, 2010
I know what you’re thinking: walking into a room full of strangers and announcing that you’re unemployed is as far from your comfort zone as you can get. Networking is awkward and makes you feel desperate. Do you really have to do it? The answer is no. Some people do find work without assertively networking. It just generally takes them a lot longer than those who are out actively saying, “I have a lot to offer and I ne...

  Is perfectionism hurting your career?
by Elizabeth Freedman - Sep, 2010
How do you know if perfectionism is hurting your career, job search, overall professional success? Ask yourself the following: Do you find yourself getting ready to get ready to make a move…that you never make? For instance, you know you need to start networking, which you fully intend to do, once your resume is in better shape/website is redesigned/life is perfect. Does your productivity suffer, because you spend way too...
