  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...
  How Can You Guarantee That You Get An Interview?
by Stacey Lane - Nov, 2015
Oh, how I love this question. When people tell me that they’ve never had an interview when they didn’t get an offer, I ask only one question: “How long ago was your last job search?” Why? Because the whole hiring process isn’t quite as straightforward as you might have experienced it in the past. Even seasoned, confident job-seekers are getting thrown off their game and not getting offers after one, two or even three se...
  How long will my job search take?
by Stacey Lane - Nov, 2015
When I get asked by my clients how long their job search will be, I give them my general rule: “It will take longer than you think it should, even when the job market is humming along.” Your timeline isn’t necessarily in sync with hiring timelines, nor can you predict when the “right fit” job will come along. You may even base your time estimate on how long it took you back in 2009 when you were last looking. Throw those old...
  4 Tips to Being More Hirable Every Executive Should Know
by Louise Garver - Nov, 2015
The executive job market has changed over the years. That’s a fact. Employers are extremely selective with their executive hires more so today than ever before. The number of qualified candidates searching for new positions still creates a highly competitive market. How can you present yourself to be more hirable and beat out your competition? Tip 1: Stand out with your resume. The old-fashioned resume format is dead. Be...
  Avoid These 3 Resume Mistakes
by Jacqui Barrett-Poindexter - Nov, 2015
According to, the definition for resume is "a summing up; summary;" and, "a brief written account of personal, educational and professional qualifications and experiences, as that prepared by an applicant for a job." With this somewhat broad definition in mind, job seekers often get consumed by understanding the details of what to do when building a career summary. However, the conundrum is that you're not su...
  Entrepreneurs vs. Employees: You Can be Both!
by Georgia Adamson - Nov, 2015
Sometimes the concepts of entrepreneur and employee are described as two sides of a coin–that is, you can be one or the other, but not both. In other cases, they’re positioned as not so mutually exclusive. I tend to support the latter view, at least much of the time. What does that mean to you? For one thing, you might find that even a bit of entrepreneurial spirit gives you an edge over your competition. It sets you apart...
