  Career lessons from a royal wedding
by Miriam Salpeter - May, 2011
Did you get up to watch the royal wedding? I did! I’m a royal watcher from way back. Unlike the last royal weddings I arose early to view, this time, I am thinking of the career lessons from the story. Everyone seems to be making a major point of how Catherine and William hold the burden of the whole country — the future of England and the monarchy — on their shoulders. Can you imagine a bigger job? These are the...
 
  CIO Resumes: Mining IT Projects for Strategic Benefit
by Laura Smith-Proulx - May, 2011
Are you a rising star in the IT world eager for a shot at the CIO role? Ascending from IT Director or VP takes more than just showing how you’ve leveraged the technology itself: you’ll need to first put yourself in the C-suite on paper. As described by my recent article in ComputerWorld, most would-be technology executives stumble when it comes to resume writing at the CIO level. Transitioning your value proposition to...
 
  Do You Really Want to Use THAT LinkedIn Photo?
by Laura Smith-Proulx - May, 2011
Some time ago, I ran across a LinkedIn picture of a job seeker who was holding a very specific political sign over her head. In bright letters. In shorts (and no, they did NOT become her). Curious about this phenomenon, I surveyed my fine resume-writing, coaching, and careers industry colleagues at Career Directors International on the subject of inappropriate LinkedIn photographs. As a result, I came away with a...
 
  Don't Apply Just Once
by Laura Smith-Proulx - May, 2011
Planning to apply to that hot job you just found online? Take it a step further with some competitive research that can put you first in line (but at another company). Here’s the idea: when companies post a position, they might be hiring from within their network – looking at suppliers, competitors, vendors, and any other organizations within their sphere of influence for that perfect candidate. If they follow through...
 
  How to Explain Being Fired
by Debra Wheatman - May, 2011
Dear Deb, Q. I was fired from my last job because of a conflict I had with the manager. He did something that I felt was unethical. When I found out, I went over his head and told his superior. He was able to twist the situation and next thing you know, I got the boot. I have decided not to take the company to court; but I was wondering what your thoughts are on how to best explain this during an interview. J.D, Houston...
 
  Résumé Help - Information Technology Manager
by Debra Wheatman - May, 2011
Today our Résumé Help reviews the résumé of a candidate in the Information Technology space. George is a strong candidate; and some of the information on his résumé is quite compelling. George has overused bullets throughout the document. This detracts from the readability. Most hiring managers and recruiters will skip bullets beyond a certain point. George also uses the first person, which is not appropriate for a résumé...
 
  Résumé Help – Business Management Candidate
by Debra Wheatman - May, 2011
Today we are showcasing the résumé of candidate who does not have a clear path in terms of his work history. He included a summary, which I omitted so we can focus on the Experience section of his résumé. He neglected to create a concise headline and the summary he has written does not steer the reader in any specific direction. As a result, I am left wondering what this candidate is interested in doing. He put his Educatio...
 
  Take Responsibility For Your Career
by Deborah Brown-Volkman - May, 2011
Who do you fault if something goes wrong in your career? Yourself or someone around you? How about if no one is to fault, but someone is responsible? How about if the responsible person is you? Most people don’t like to take responsibility. First of all, it’s not fun. Second, responsibility forces you to look deep inside yourself to assess and reassess your life and career, which is also not fun. Finally, responsibility...
 
  The employer didn’t get back to me. What should I do?
by Wendy Enelow - May, 2011
It seems that 99% of the time, employers say they will get back to you within a certain time frame, and then they don’t. There are two possible reasons for this: 1. They are short-staffed and just can’t get all the decision-makers together to make a hiring decision, so they haven’t decided who to hire yet; or they are still checking people’s references and waiting to hear back from the references before a decision is made...
 
  Want That Executive Job? Don't Write Your Own Resume
by Laura Smith-Proulx - May, 2011
Here’s a common refrain that I’ve heard from budding C-level executives: “I wrote my own resume a few years back, but I can see that it’s just not working now. I can't get anyone to respond at the right level!" An overwhelming majority of aspiring and current executive job hunters (and I mean literally 80%+ of the people that I talk with) cannot position themselves properly in a resume, and here’s why: Buzzwords and pro...
