  How to Create a Powerful Leadership Resume by Quantifying Achievements
by Laura Smith-Proulx - Sep, 2010
Trying to tell employers the story of a long and successful executive career on your resume? Unfortunately, describing yourself as a seasoned, skilled, or experienced leader won’t cut it as much as showing the results of what you’ve done. Quantifying the results of your work, especially when it comes to the bottom line, will tell companies why they can count on you to produce similar gains for them, and will underscore your...
 
  Is Your Career Goal Realistic?
by Laura Smith-Proulx - Sep, 2010
If you’re not gaining the response you want from your job hunt, there can be several reasons: lack of hiring in your desired field, a watered-down resume that doesn’t represent your skills, shotgun job-search tactics like applying to every job you see, or an over-the-top, unrealistic goal for your next position. The latter situation can occur when you’re unsure how your skills tie into different rungs on the career ladder,...
 
  6 Common Sense Job Search Tips
by Lindsey Pollak - Sep, 2010
Last week’s post, “5 Simple But Brilliant Job Interview Strategies,” generated a lot of feedback, particularly from recruiters who told me how often job seekers make seemingly obvious mistakes such as spelling a recruiter’s name incorrectly. This reminded me of the fact that, as Voltaire famously said, “Common sense is not so common.” So today I wanted to share some additional seemingly simple career tips that many job seek...
 
  It’s 2010…Do You Know Where Your Digital Footprint Is?
by Barbara Safani - Sep, 2010
I’m headed out to Dallas to present a hands-on workshop on social media strategies for job seekers to my colleagues at this year’s National Resume Writers’ Association Conference. Resumes are an important marketing tool, but I believe that a resume is naked without a corresponding social media strategy. Over 90% of recruiters perform Internet searches on candidates before making a hiring decision, and more than half of empl...
 
  5 Simple But Brilliant Job Interview Strategies
by Lindsey Pollak - Sep, 2010
In a recent blog post I outlined some of the biggest job seeker mistakes to avoid, based on my own experience hiring a paid intern. Today, I’ll share some simple but impactful tactics you should employ to help you land the job you want. 1. Spell the recruiter or hiring manager’s name right. Of the emails I received responding to the position I posted, about half (!) spelled my name wrong. To me, that was an instant sign th...

  College: Time To Grow Up
by Bob Roth - Sep, 2010
When students enter college, they will begin to face a long list of challenges. Whether they are ready or not, every student will be expected to have the maturity to act responsibly, do their best work and make good choices. This is a time when students begin to operate on their own and take full responsibility for their decisions, words, behavior and results. Students who finance their own way through college, usually...
 
  Over 50? Tricks to Land a Better Job
by Robin Ryan - Sep, 2010
You read so much bad news about anyone who's a mature worker that you might think your best years are behind you if you are over 50 - WRONG! I've recently worked with several career counseling clients who are past 49 and each has had a BIG career success. Hope - and self confidence, plus some savvy know-how - seems to be the key. Wendell is a programmer in his mid 50s - a tough job title to maintain on a permanent ba...
 
  Top Five Career Mistakes
by Nimish Thakkar - Sep, 2010
Held, guilty of career stagnation -- of course, no one is ever going to pass that sentence on you, but by ineffectively managing your career, you could easily find yourself making the same career mistakes most individuals make. 1. Randomly pursuing jobs Apparently, even the greatest of strategists do not have a clear plan when it comes to their own careers. Most, just accept jobs or opportunities that come their way, wit...
 
  Why finding a recruiter won't automatically end your job search
by Laura Smith-Proulx - Sep, 2010
I was recently asked by a prospective client if I "knew" any recruiters. Well, I do maintain strong relationships with recruiters in various fields, but there seemed to be a disconnect in the question. You see, finding a recruiter is only part of the effort you'll need to undertake in order to be successful. Recruiters find candidates, not jobs. Let me repeat that again - a recruiter will NOT set out to find you a job. T...
