Job Search Not Working? Get Fearless
by Dawn Lennon - Feb, 2010
Out of a job? Hate your job? It’s time to get fearless. It’s useless to say, “There aren’t any jobs out there for me.” It’s pointless to grumble about being stuck in a job that’s boring. These are self-fulfilling prophesies. If you believe it, it will be so. My advice: Stop it! No more negative self-talk. It’s not making you feel any better. It’s not moving you forward. It’s not moving you at all. It’s a waste to be y...
Does Increasing Interviewing Accuracy Improve Quality of Hire?
by Lou Adler - Feb, 2010
John Sullivan wrote a great piece on ERE a few months ago, titled Five Ugly Numbers You Can’t Ignore. John’s article pointed out public research indicating fundamental flaws with the interviewing and assessment process used by most companies. As a result of John’s article, I participated in a series of animated discussion on these ERE pages regarding the relative impact of increased interviewing accuracy on improving qualit...
EEOC's Proposed Age Discrimination Regulation Introduces Practical Significance
by Stephanie Thomas, Ph.D. - Feb, 2010
On February 18, 2010 the EEOC released new regulations that will address the meaning of "Reasonable Factors Other than Age" (RFOA) under the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA). Dennis Westlind of Stoel Rives has an excellent post on the law behind the proposed regulation. To establish the RFOA defense under the new rules, an employer would have to demonstrate that the employment practice was both (a) reasonably des...
For Higher Morale, Think Maslow
by David Lee - Feb, 2010
More specifically, if you want higher employee morale and greater employee engagement, think of Maslow's "other hierarchy." Awhile back, I heard Gary Hirschberg, CEO of Stonyfield Farm, refer to Maslow’s Hierarchy of…Grumbles. I laughed, thinking he had put an amusing spin on Dr. Maslow’s famous hierarchy. To my surprise, when I returned home and scanned The Farther Reaches of Human Nature, I discovered he actually wrote ab...
Work Life Balance ~ The Little Things That Help You Stay Up!
by Keri Coffman-Thiede - Feb, 2010
Try this...stand on one foot. Go ahead – I’ll wait. Now notice what that’s like. Balance is not a stagnant action. Matter of fact, if you stiffen up and don’t allow yourself the tiny motions it takes to constantly maintain balance, you’ll fall right over. Try it. I’ll wait. Balance in life is the same way. It’s about doing the little things that help you stay up that influence how “on or off” balance you feel. Balan...
Five Steps to Deal with Boring Work
by Shweta Khare - Feb, 2010
If you are bored at work and have done nothing about it, perhaps this article will get you up and working on how to get out of it right now – You really can be bored to death, researchers say. According to the report: “Those who reported they had been very bored were two and a half times more likely to die of a heart problem than those who hadn’t reported being bored,” AP reports and cites comments from cardiologist Chri...
Your 5-Step Method for Defining Job Satisfaction
by Rob Taub - Feb, 2010
The question was asked: How do I pick my major if I don’t know what I want to be when I grow up? Answer: Start with the end in mind. As with writing a speech, you determine what your objective is and what it is you hope to instill in your audience, and only THEN do you begin to write your speech. Make sense? Same with job searching and too, picking a major, internships, related clubs and activities, and more: You begin with...
Help Them Help You!
by Harry Urschel - Feb, 2010
Most people understand the importance of networking when looking for a job, however, few do it effectively. People tell me their networking conversations or meetings are awkward and rarely produce anything meaningful. When I dig a little deeper, I often find that they expect their networking contacts to somehow just know what to do. Most people would love to help you, but have no idea how they can. It’s up to you to help th...
How to Keep Your Thank-You Note Out of the Trash
by Karen Burns - Feb, 2010
You’ve heard it a million times: Always send a thank-you letter after a job interview. So it may surprise you to learn that some hiring managers don’t like receiving these letters. It’s a waste of their time, they say. Sounds a little curmudgeonly, doesn’t it? But maybe it’s because so many thank-you letters are a waste of time--theirs, and ultimately, yours, too. Are you using your letters just to say “thanks for the inter...
Is Your Resume a Used Car Salesman?
by Louise Fletcher - Feb, 2010
Don’t we all dread buying a car? The hype, the evasions, the glib sales pitch...it all just reeks of desperation. Hiring a new employee can often feel the same way. One resume after another, all filled with hype and smooth sales talk, all with the faint whiff of desperation. By glib sales talk, I mean cliched ‘resume speak.’ The stuff you see on everybody else’s resume. Like this... Accomplished 10-year veteran with e...
