How to say ‘no’ without saying ‘no’ to the boss
by Elizabeth Freedman - May, 2010
If you work for a Slave Driver, you’ve got to master the art of saying ‘no’ the boss…without saying ‘no.’ Here are a few tips, smoothie: Let your boss know how much you care about getting the job done – and how much you value working “smart” – instead of just working “hard.” Try: “John, I’ve noticed how much extra time we put in on weekends and evenings to get the job done.

Customize Each Cover Letter You Send Or Don't Send One At All
by Liz Handlin - May, 2010
One of the services I offer is cover letter writing. Many clients contact me and ask me to write both a resume and cover letter. I always tell them the same thing: I am happy to write a resume but let's wait until you are applying for a specific job or to a specific company to write that cover letter. Part of the reason for that is that the way I write cover letters is very customized. I need to learn about the person I am wri...

Should the Recruiting Department Be Charged with Financial Malfeasance?
by Lou Adler - May, 2010
Earlier this year I presented a financial model that demonstrated that on average, hiring a C+ person instead of a B+ person costs a company somewhere between 50 and 100% of the person’s annual compensation. This becomes a huge waste of resources if you do this more than once. For example, if you’re hiring just one $60,000 C+ person instead of a B+ person, the net loss is $30,000-60,000 per year. If you’re hiring 1,000 peop...

The temptation is particularly strong after a number of rejections. Avoid gimmickry like the plague.

Bad Credit? Employer Credit Check? No Worries!
by Judi Perkins - May, 2010
In addition to drug testing and often fingerprinting, companies both national and international have also required credit checks. But it’s become more the norm than the exception, because with the extreme number of people applying, companies have implemented it as a means of indicating a candidate’s character. Unfortunately for the many who have been out of work so long they’ve destroyed their credit, a credit check strike...

Create Harmony & Fulfillment By Creating Practices That Work
by Beverly Jones - May, 2010
Our routine practices – our normal ways of doing things – shape much of our time, even though we may not be conscious of these habitual patterns. But we have the power to transform our lives by examining our own activities, and replacing some of our habits with a new set of practices that are both mindful and rewarding. This kind of mindful “practice” is close to the conscious, regular activity you might undertake if you pu...
Where Do Job Leads Come From?
by Harry Urschel - May, 2010
That’s what most job seekers want to know! “What is the most likely source for finding the right job?” and “Where should I focus my time?” Questions that make sense to ask… however, are very difficult to answer! MANY times, the best job leads come from the most unlikely sources! The best job lead may come out of the blue!
