Three Keys to a Purpose-Driven Resume
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Feb, 2010
We’ve all heard of the book, but what a great principle to apply to our resumes, cover letters, and job searches. Instead of utilizing a generic or jack of all trades (and master of none) resume, we should be using (and with great success) a purpose-driven, focused, and customized resume. In fact, if you have expertise in more than one area, then you should be broadcasting more than one resume. After working recently with...
Too Many Words
by Suzanne Bates - Feb, 2010
Okay, so the other day, I opened up a presentation with this photo. It was Storytelling for Sales Professionals. The caption read, ”Let’s look at the underbelly of your preparation for customers - how do you REALLY get ready for a sales meeting?” Yea, they laughed. (I was so grateful. Isn’t it nice to get a laugh?) The point I hoped to make was that the more experienced you are the less likely you are to prepare becau...
How to Get Through a Big Change Without Having a Cow
by Louise Fletcher - Feb, 2010
I haven’t blogged for quite a while. That’s not because I ran out of things to say (My husband will confirm that I never run out of things to say) or because I just got lazy and spent the last month eating chocolate and watching reruns of The Golden Girls. I haven’t blogged because our site was being redesigned. Once the blog content had been moved, I had to wait for the new site to go live before adding any new posts. A fe...
Too Long or Too Short?
by Harry Urschel - Feb, 2010
I’ve often said: “Show your resume to 10 people and you will get 10 different, and often conflicting opinions!” A ‘good’ resume is very subjective to the reader. Everyone has preferences as to what’s appropriate and what’s not. There is no such thing as a ‘perfect’ resume and it should always be a work in progress...tweaking, tuning, and tailoring it to each position you apply to and for each circumstance. It’s a good idea ...
How to Ace the Phone Interview
by Karen Burns - Feb, 2010
Many job interviews these days are conducted by phone. It’s faster and cheaper for both job hirers and hunters. HR folks especially like it because it allows them to screen more applicants in less time. A phone interview may even be your first contact with a potential employer. Phone interviews are not, however, the same as in-person interviews. So much human communication is non-verbal! You may need to acquire a few new sk...
Creating Your Career Transition Binder
by Ford R. Myers - Feb, 2010
If you’re in job search mode, you should create a binder – your very own Career Transition Binder. I’ve found that there are two types of job seekers: those who create a binder to keep track of all their networking, interviewing, career documents, lists, and contacts in one place – and those who don’t. Guess which group tends to make more progress, get more interviews, land great jobs more quickly, and negotiate better deal...

Quality of Hire vs. Recruiter Competencies
by Lou Adler - Feb, 2010
Let me start off this article by saying that I’ve been working with top candidates, top hiring managers, and top recruiters for the past 30 years. As a result of this we’ve developed training tools based on how top candidates make job change decisions, how top managers who can attract and recruit the best talent make their decisions, and how top recruiters out-produce their average peers by factors of 100-200% or more. Many o...

Got a Job That’s Crushing You? Start To Lift The Weight
by Dawn Lennon - Feb, 2010
Oh, boy, it’s exciting to get a new job, especially with a new company. Everything looks so promising. We feel really good about ourselves–validated, reinforced, and successful. It’s amazing how our careers can start out in one place and morph to another. It’s all so gradual that we hardly know it’s happening until one day we realize that we’re someplace that we don’t want to be. Or, more often, a place that’s crushing ...
