  Resume Questions and Answers
by Robin Schlinger - Nov, 2015
Q. I’m really confused. I keep hearing about applicant tracking systems that electronically pick out keywords from your resume and discard your resume if the keywords are not there. Then I hear about hiring managers spending 10 seconds reading the first third of a resume. So should the first third of my resume be a list of all the possible keywords that could get me a job? A. A short list of your key areas of expertise is f...

  Tips For Landing A Job Over 40: Putting the 3 P’s To Work
by Caroline Dowd-Higgins - Nov, 2015
There’s no doubt that being back in the job market in your 40s and 50s can be more challenging than earlier days on the job-hunting trail. Many of my 40-plus coaching clients feel out of interview shape and daunted by the job-search process – especially if they’ve been steadily employed for years, or even decades. While ageism certainly exists for over-40 job seekers, many of my mature clients have successfully landed jobs...
  Your Career Success: Focused Path vs. Diversity
by Georgia Adamson - Nov, 2015
Some of you probably knew what you wanted to be when you grew up, even before you left childhood behind. Many of us, though, take longer to figure it out, and some take a really long time. Others never quite do choose a single goal. If you’re one of those, does that mean there’s something seriously wrong with you? Not necessarily, but it might mean you’ll have a more challenging career road ahead, with a lot of zigs and zag...

  Are your job hunting shoes stuck in quicksand?
by Sherri Edwards - Nov, 2015
It’s pretty understandable that people often go into a panic when they lose their job. The tough part is helping them remobilize and develop a plan for what happens next, instead of taking wild potshots at job postings in their quest to become reemployed. Many times a candidate gets so focused on “getting a job” that they start to believe they will magically find and secure a job in one stroke. (Imagine a hunter with a spear f...
  Contacting agency recruiters only when you need a job? That is not networking.
by Sherri Edwards - Nov, 2015
Recently I read a “success story” written by someone who was very proud of their networking efforts to get a new job. They had simply sent their resume to a handful of recruiters and waited to see what came back. In a matter of weeks, an interview was arranged and they accepted a contract position. The problem is that they had not learned much about the company in advance of the interview and only knew what the company’s websi...
  Do you know why you are unemployed?
by Sherri Edwards - Nov, 2015
If you are thinking this is a dumb question, you may want to think again. Unless you are aware of the circumstances that led to your layoff or termination and are also very clear about your current market value, you’ll be unable to craft a strategy for moving forward. Although statistics may show there are more jobs available this year, what you actually do and how you do it will play a significant part in determining whether...
  Employment therapy Rᵪ
by Sherri Edwards - Nov, 2015
When one of my clients strays from the plan we have set forth, the fallout might be a frantic email asking what they should do because a situation has started to go south. It’s my job to help them dig their way out of whatever they got themselves into. It won’t work to tell them to “Take two aspirin and call me in the morning.” I need to be there with a safety net, a remedy, and sometimes a crystal ball. In addition to assi...
