  Why No one is Calling You Back (and What to do About It)
by Louise Fletcher - Sep, 2010
The most common complaint I hear from job seekers is this: “I’m sending tons of resumes out and no one is calling me back.” I know how frustrating this can be from personal experience. I’ve been there myself back before I had my own business. You see the perfect vacancy – you just know you have all the right skills for it – and you are sure they will call you as soon as they see your resume. So when the phone doesn’t ring,...
 
  7 Surprising Reasons You Didn’t Get a Call Back for that Job
by Heather Huhman - Sep, 2010
It’s natural to wonder why you didn’t get an interview – or perhaps make it to the second round – for a job you thought was a perfect fit. While I always feel it’s best to ask the hiring manager what went wrong, do a little self-analysis first. Perhaps you made one of the following mistakes: 1. You didn’t follow-up, and someone else did. At every part of the job search process, it’s important to follow up with the hiring ma...
 
  Is Your Resume Ready for a Recruiter?
by Laura Smith-Proulx - Sep, 2010
Great news! You received a call out of the blue from a recruiter who wants to see your resume quickly. But what if you haven’t kept it current? First of all, consider asking for more time to pull things together. After all, the recruiter’s job is easier if your resume clearly tells the employer why you’re a strong candidate. Now, on to getting that resume in shape! Here are 3 tips to help you craft a compelling document—...
 
  7 Overused and Worn-Out Phrases to Avoid on Your Resume
by Laura Smith-Proulx - Sep, 2010
If you’ve constantly looked at other resumes to get ideas, borrowing words here and there, you might find that employers are on to your game. Weary of reading the same phrases over and over again, hiring managers are starting to expect more from top candidates who want to stand out in the crowded job market. Here are 7 phrases that appear far too often on resumes, with recommendations on how to improve your wording for a s...
 
  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...
 
  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...
 
  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...
 
  How to Get Inside the Mind of an Employer
by Kevin Donlin - Sep, 2010
There's an old marketing maxim I live by when advising job seekers. It dates back to the 1930s and comes from Robert Collier, one of the best writers of sales letters who ever lived. It goes like this: To create successful advertising, the writer must enter the conversation already going on in mind of the reader. Because everybody is thinking about something. If you can tap into a person’s thoughts with your mess...
 
  Resume Writing Strategies from a Career Coach’s Secret Toolkit
by Nimish Thakkar - Sep, 2010
Ever wonder how career coaches and resume writers transform ordinary resumes into attention-grabbing documents? As career professionals, we use a variety of strategies to position job seekers and add the much-needed “punch” to their resumes. 1. Address employer needs; speak their language Employers look for solutions, not people. When a company publicizes an opening, it is advertising a need, a gap within its system. In...
 
  Tips for Writing a Persuasive Cover Letter
by Nimish Thakkar - Sep, 2010
Much has been said about creating a perfect resume, but job seekers pay very little attention to the document that precedes it: the cover letter. A well-crafted cover letter can not only deliver a solid first impression, it can actually influence the hiring manager even before the resume is reviewed. In my professional practice, I often come across cover letters that resemble cookie-cutter templates. Generic letters can be...
