All I Need Is a Way To Get My Foot In The Door...
by Kris Plantrich - Mar, 2010
Recently I had a conversation with a job seeker which I have had similarly with many others in the past. The conversation begins with a recap of what actions they have taken in their job search and what thei r expectations are for working together. I often here something like, “I can handle the job search – I just need a resume to get me in the door, and I know I can talk my way into the job – I can talk my way into anything”....
How High-School Students are Better at Getting Jobs Than Most Professionals
by Joshua Waldman - Mar, 2010
Recently, I’ve been engaged with a local company doing some marketing consulting. They asked me to help them screen candidates for an open rec in the marketing department. This experience was both shocking and revealing. Now, I’m not new to interviews. In fact, I volunteer for my alumni association every year to screen high-school students interested in attending. It’s great practice and I’ve always been extremely impressed...
Your Resume Is Not a Tweet
by Jacqui Barrett-Poindexter - Mar, 2010
I read it, and I get it, and I buy-in to the 20-second ‘resume scan’ rule. Yet, I don’t FULLY buy in . What I mean is, I don’t accept the implication by some that your resume only gets a 10-, 20-, 30-second sweeping glance by the hiring manager, recruiter, HR...AND THAT’S IT (the end of the road for your resume). I love how GL Hoffman discusses the lean resume concept by playfully experimenting with the idea of a 6-word r...
Quality and Personal Excellence...NOT an Option!
by Andy Robinson - Mar, 2010
Quality and Personal Excellence are two key elements of your Personal Brand. The degree to which you fully embrace the importance of these elements is communicated to others on a continuous basis and is incorporated into others' vision of who you are -- i.e., the Personal Brand that you broadcast. Those who are fully aware of this fact can definitely undertake action to broadcast a Personal Brand that elevates their profession...
Customer Service as Horror Story - Give It The Boot
by Dawn Lennon - Mar, 2010
Ever wonder if really bad customer service is a conspiracy? Or is bad service just about poor leadership? I had to break my foot to find out. On a very hot summer morning, I was trying to teach a strong-willed colt of mine to walk nicely when being led. Instead he’d take two steps and rear. I would dodge his feet and try again. Well, my luck ran out. Up he went and down he came, digging his hoof into the outside of my le...
Serious as a Heart Attack
by Suzanne Bates - Mar, 2010
About seven or eight years ago, I worked with the CEO of a global manufacturing firm. We were in his office for about 2.5 hours (in theory for a media training but he didn’t want to because he was tired) so we talked mostly about his career. I gently raise the oh-so-popular topic of a succession plan. Did he have one? Not really. Who would be in line for his job? Four or five people could be ready someday. Did he want t...
How to Write a Resume: Steps #1 - #4
by Louise Fletcher - Mar, 2010
Writing a resume is a chore for most people. I know this because whenever I do an online search for the term ‘how to write a resume’ or ‘writing a resume’, I come across someone tweeting “ARRRGH I hate writing my resume” or “I have been trying to write this stupid resume for weeks. I hate it!!!” Being the intuitive person that I am, I therefore deduce that resume writing is not something more people enjoy. Me? I love it!...
From Twitter, LinkedIn & Facebook to Face-To-Face
by Harry Urschel - Mar, 2010
Not long ago, I received an email from someone asking: “I am in the midst of a horrible job hunt and have been for a while. Do you know of any online groups or support forums that can help me keep a schedule or talk about issues? I live in a small town and the local groups are more geared towards factory workers rather than professionals.” Good question! Most larger metropolitan areas have a number of networking groups,...

Six Ways To Increase Your Visibility at Work
by Tai Goodwin - Mar, 2010
