by Dorothy Montgomery - Nov, 2014
Are you feeling stuck in your career? Have you been passed by for promotion or just trying to see the roads of opportunity ahead? We have felt this way at some time or other in our career. People are often led to believe that promotions come: to those who are lucky (just happened to be in the right place at the right time); to those who manage-up well (become their boss’s favorite); as part of the job (entitlement)....

After being on the job hunt for a while with no prospective offers or interviews on the horizon, executives often times wonder whether or not they should go back to school to obtain an advanced degree. Same conundrum can happen to recent college graduates when they struggle to find a suitable first job.

Ho-Hum Resumes: Is Yours One of Them?
by Georgia Adamson - Nov, 2014
Sometimes it feels as if I’m playing a broken record on this, but experience shows that too many job seekers still don’t get the difference between a resume that showcases their unique value to employers and one that looks basically like a job description. The latter is what I’ve decided to call a ho-hum resume. In other words, the response to it is likely to be something along the lines of “who cares?” or “So…?” or even “O...
Got The Sunday Night Career Blues?
by Caroline Dowd-Higgins - Nov, 2014
The way we feel about our job at any given time can vary depending on a wide array of factors: how a particular project is going; technical issues; how well staff is performing; etc. However, when you have a chronic case of the Sunday Night Blues – dreading the return to work each Monday – that’s a sign that it’s time to consider changing jobs or possibly even careers. In a recent LinkedIn post, Sallie Krawcheck, former ban...

They creep in everywhere, the little exaggerations or omissions: those little resume lies. Some resume writers even encourage them in the name of “helping” a job applicant look good. But in my viewpoint, the consequences of lying are never worth the risk; they are too severe, both personally and professionally, and too likely to be exposed, even during the job interview. Those little lies include: Inflating a job title. Your...

You’re Fired! Dealing with Unexpected Career Transitions (Part 2)
by Kalindi Garvin - Nov, 2014
“You’re Fired” Somehow, it seems much more benign when Donald Trump says those two words at the end of every episode of The Apprentice. But when those words are directed to you, you may be shocked. What you do next, however, can make the difference in the length of time you’re unemployed, and how you fare financially. Generally, you’ll be told of your termination in a face-to-face meeting. The meeting might be led by you...

by Rowe Leathers - Nov, 2014
Do you need to nail your next job interview? If so, don’t go! Instead, send someone who is a master of conversation, someone who is energetic and charismatic to help you land that job. A charismatic person can convey your skills, experiences and qualifications with purpose.

by Cathy Francois - Nov, 2014
I have reviewed thousands of resumes as a career coach. I find that every resume provides clues about the person behind it and have a personality all on their own that may be a reflection of the author.
