  Surviving Job Loss
by Dale Kurow, M.S. - Apr, 2012
If you are one of the many who are unemployed or anticipate being out of work, read on. When you lose a job, whether by choice or not, you may feel loss, fear and its helpful cousin, anxiety. It may have been a miserable situation that you couldn't wait to leave. You may start beating yourself up (mentally and emotionally) for having stayed too long, for lack of foresight and for the dread of having to begin a job search...
 
  Joe Quits His Job: A Cautionary Tale of Transition
by Emily King - Apr, 2012
This is a true story. A career military officer – let’s call him Joe for simplicity’s sake – retires after 20 years of service with a valuable and highly marketable skill set. Joe receives several offers early in his job search. He accepts one based on his interest in the work, the small size of the company (that would allow him to grow with it), and salary among other factors. Two months into his employment Joe is happy with...
 
  Another Option After High School: Trade/Vocational Schools
by Randall Hansen - Feb, 2012
Why college? Unless you are one of the lucky few who receive a full scholarship to college, is a college education -- and tens of thousands of dollars in debt for you or your family -- always the right path after high school? As a former college professor, my first response is yes, of course a college education is worth the investment. More and more jobs and careers are professional, white collar jobs in which an undergrad...
 
  How to Obtain and Use References and Recommendation Letters
by Maureen Crawford Hentz - Feb, 2012
As a job-seeker, one of your most important assets is your stock of professional references. Both letters and phone recommendations can elevate a good candidate to a top choice and drop a good candidate down to the no-longer-considered pile. It's important that you manage your recommendations carefully to leverage them in the best possible way. The most important thing is to ask people who have good things to say about you...
 
  Career change – Top tips for a successful transition
by Louise Garver - Feb, 2012
The facts are clear. Over the last decade, executives want a career change because they are dissatisfied with their job / industry, unhappy with salary, insecure about longevity of job, work in an obsolete industry, or a victim of corporate downsizing. Maybe you are among nearly 50% of job seekers rethinking their career path. A recent Today show segment focused on Marla Romash, who after an amazing career in politics felt...
 
  Should you just take any old job?
by Hallie Crawford - Jan, 2012
I was talking to a career coaching client recently whose husband works at a large rental car corporation. He has been posting for a job opening for over a month. They have received very few, if any responses to the job listing. I know that most people don’t want to take a job they don’t like or one that would lower their morale. It can be frustrating to think you have to settle with any old job, especially something that is lo...
 
  3 Easy-to-Make Mistakes Job Candidates Should Avoid At All Costs
by Amanda Abella - Dec, 2011
Companies usually rev up hiring in January thanks to new budgets and the expiration of hiring freezes, which means if you’re a job seeker, you have an opportunity. But as a recruiter for a private employment agency, I can tell you that so many applicants are disqualified because of one wrong move. I interview droves of people and yet only want to refer about 10 percent to companies we work with. What disqualifies so...
 
  Top Tips for Pumping Up Your Job Search Results
by Joan Runnheim Olson - Dec, 2011
1. Network, Network, Network!!! Up to 80% of jobs are found through networking. In addition to face-to-face networking (the most powerful) be sure to add social media networking to your list. 2. Treat your job search like a job. Be willing to spend 35 hours a week in your search if you're unemployed and up to 15 if you're employed. Any less than that will most likely lengthen the amount of time you spend looking for yo...
 
  Micro Job Search Approach
by Georgia Adamson - Dec, 2011
As mentioned before, gone are the days when you could throw resumes at a bunch of “help wanted” ads in the local papers and hope enough would stick to get you a new job. The initial successor to that haphazard technique—posting your resume on a zillion online job boards—has also run into major problems over the past few years. For one thing, this change meant that you had a much larger competitive arena to struggle with in ord...
 
  Online submitting is not DEAD
by Hallie Crawford - Dec, 2011
You might think that when you submit to an online application your resume is going into a deep black hole. While it might feel that way, it’s not always the case. I’ve had two career coaching clients recently who submitted to online jobs. One client got a phone call within 2 hours to set up an interview. He didn’t get that particular job but through that person he heard about another job and was able to secure a job within...
