  Can Gen-X Career Discontent Work for YOU as a Job Seeker?
by Joe Turner - Nov, 2010
I recently interviewed Career Coach Randy Block about the generation gap between Baby Boomers and Gen-X hiring managers. Turns out the generation gap works in both directions per a recent AP article from Martha Irvine. She noted that the Gen-Xers are feeling squeezed between the Boomers who won’t go away and the up and coming Gen-Yers. According to Robin Erickson, manager at Deloitte Consulting, once this recession eases o...
 
  Have You Considered Working a Temp Job?
by Joe Turner - Nov, 2010
If you’ve thought before about working a temp job, here’s some further ammo for considering it. Today the US unemployment rate rose to 9.8%, the highest this country has experienced since June 1983. That’s 15.1 million Americans now out of work. According to the US Labor Department, another 263,000 jobs were lost last month, higher than expected. Additionally, if those who were already laid off and have had to settle fo...
 
  Is There a Work Gap on Your Resume?
by Joe Turner - Nov, 2010
Are your prospects dimming because you’ve been out of work for 3 months, 6 months, even longer? I talk with job seekers every day about their resume and job hunting strategies. Many are in this same boat and rightly concerned. As the economy continues to tank, I predict that the out-of-work gap period will only grow longer for many job hunters, making the search even harder for them. In the past, when a job hunter was o...
 
  A Zillion More Reasons to Abolish Job Descriptions
by Lou Adler - Nov, 2010
As most of you know, I think job descriptions are the primary reason why companies can’t find or hire top talent. For this reason alone they should be abolished. Here’s the first dozen of a zillion reasons why. 1. Except for the list of responsibilities, they don’t define jobs at all; they define people taking the jobs. If these descriptions left out the required skills, years of experience, industry background, and academ...
 
  Watch Out! Great Careers Can Creep Up on You
by Dawn Lennon - Nov, 2010
Where we start isn’t always where we finish. At least that’s the case with many careers. It’s crazy to think that when we’re in high school we’d have a clear idea about what we want to do for a lifetime. Nevertheless, we go on to technical school or college choosing a trade or a major which declares, “This is my future.” The business world is a big place. There are tens of thousands of career paths in as many businesses....
 
  A LinkedIn Profile That Works!
by Harry Urschel - Nov, 2010
As I’ve said many times before, LinkedIn is a game changer when it comes to an effective job search in today’s online world. There has never been a resource that made it as easy to find the critical information you need when you’re looking for a new job… Companies, Contacts, Interview Prep information, Comparative Job Histories, and venues to discuss topics and challenges related to any job, field, or industry. It’s incredible...
 
  Being “Assertive” in Job Interviews
by Harry Urschel - Nov, 2010
I received a note from someone that said: “I was told I was not assertive enough in an interview I just had. How do you do that?” Good question, and one that I think affects a number of job seekers. How do you express assertiveness without being over-bearing or offensive? And what does being “assertive” really mean? One nice result of this encounter, is that the employer gave an honest critique that most people are n...
 
  Blue-Collar or White-Collar… Different Strategies???
by Harry Urschel - Nov, 2010
As job seekers hear various job search tactics and strategies, they often think… “That doesn’t really apply to me. Those techniques are for different kinds of jobs.” Is that true? Are there different “rules” for ‘Blue-Collar’ vs. ‘White-Collar’ jobs? Well… Yes… and No! Here are some things to consider… Online tools. While LinkedIn and other online resources are “must-haves” for an effective white-collar job search...
 
  Dealing with “The Jerk”
by Harry Urschel - Nov, 2010
Someone in one of my job search classes had a terrible experience at a recent interview and wasn’t sure how she should have responded. The interviewer/hiring manager was rude, confrontational, aggressive, and belittling. Essentially… he was a Jerk! It’s pretty rare that it happens… but sometimes it does. What should you do if you are confronted with that kind of situation, and does it necessarily mean the potential oppo...
 
  How to Keep Your Cool During an Interview
by Teena Rose - Nov, 2010
Have you ever had trouble keeping your cool during an important interview? Actually, overcoming this common problem, although difficult at times, is one of the major factors which contribute to the assurance of a successful interview. Perhaps you arrive at an interview for that new job you really want after a long, sleepless night due to your childÂ’s bout with the flu, or the constant, nervous barking of your brand new puppy....
