From Survival to Revival: Getting Ready for the Recovery
by Dan King - Feb, 2010
How high will unemployment go? Has the job market hit bottom yet? How bad will it get? And when will the recovery begin? I am frequently asked these questions – and the answers are not forthcoming. The fact is, “I don’t know.” I do know that there’s no shortage of “doom and gloom” out there, and hordes of people to spread and sustain it. But I'm not willing to run with the herd. Sometimes it’s best to separate from t...

by Teena Rose - Feb, 2010
Caution People! How Social Media Is Muddying the Waters for Perfectly Good Jobseekers...and How Companies are Letting it Happen. Invited to an interview, you step into the room and unload that heavy photo album you’ve been clinging to onto the conference table. In addition to a resume and brag book, you have pictures on your iPhone of your dogs and the neighbor’s cat stalking the birds enjoying your new bird feeder. The int...
If Ben Franklin Were On Twitter
by Dan King - Feb, 2010
I'm sitting in my office answering email messages when I glance out the window and see Benjamin Franklin leaning against a wall talking on his cell phone. I rub my eyes and refocus, but Ben is still there. Have I really been transported back in time? I run to the mirror to see if I'm still me, or perhaps some caricature of Paul Revere (with or without the Raiders). I'm clearly having trouble distinguishing fantasy from reality...
Stop Boring the Hiring Manager with Your Resume
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Feb, 2010
Your resume should communicate your experience, expertise, value, personal brand, accomplishments, and contributions among other things. What it should not be is a run down of your last job description word for word. If your resume consists mostly of bullet points that only describe your responsibilities and duties then you’re doing yourself a great disservice in your job hunt and you’re boring the hiring manager or recrui...
Two Hidden Problems With Your Resume
by Kevin Donlin - Feb, 2010
Here’s a question I get in one form or another almost every week: “I’ve sent out 50 resumes and not had any job interviews. What’s wrong with my resume?” Answer: There may indeed be a problem with your resume, and I’ve been writing about effective resumes for more than 10 years, so I invite you to Google that subject to learn what I think. But wait. If you’re sending resumes to employers and not getting callbacks, the...

by Lou Adler - Feb, 2010
The economic recovery will begin. Someday. Hopefully soon. You’ll know that day has arrived when most of the following occurs on a regular basis: 1. Candidates begin accepting counter-offers. 2. Candidates want more money. 3. Candidate opt-out rates increase at every step in the hiring process. 4. Candidates you just found tell you they have just received an offer. 5. Your best people leave for greener pastures at an a...
One Surefire Way to Stand Out in Your Job Search
by Louise Fletcher - Feb, 2010
Imagine if employers saw you as not just another job applicant, but as an expert in your field. Think how it would feel to point recruiters to the speech you gave at a prestigious conference or your Masters thesis on your industry. If you’re not a well-know entrepreneur or senior executive, you might think that’s just a pipe dream. But it’s not! No matter what you do for a living, the Internet makes it possible for you t...
Restoring Your Joy in Job Search
by Jacqui Barrett-Poindexter - Feb, 2010
Joy was palpable as the oversized airplane plane descended onto the tiny tropical landing strip. The pilot forcefully applied brake pressure, wings wobbled and dear, flying-averse hubby squeezed his fingers tightly into my arm as the plane safely landed. Applause erupted and a plane-FULL of passengers, many of whose travel had been delayed several days due to winter storms, were elated to finally embark on their Key West adve...
What To Do When You Are Discouraged About Your Job Search
by Miriam Salpeter - Feb, 2010
• What do you do when you’re really, really, really discouraged about your unsuccessful job search? • How do you overcome the negative aspects of job search? It breaks my heart when I hear from a job seeker who reaches out to me after hunting unsuccessfully for a job for months – even a year or more. More often than not, it is clear to me why the person’s job hunt has gone on for so long. Either the resume and job search m...
There's Always A Reason Not To Do Something In Your Career
by Deborah Brown-Volkman - Feb, 2010
As a career coach, people are always talking to me about their careers. We discuss their dreams, wishes, and future plans. But when I ask some of these people how they will implement their plan, their reasons for not moving forward begin to flow. Their reasons vary. Some people tell me they are too old.
