  Great Strategies for Addressing Behavioral Interview Questions
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Oct, 2010
Chances are that you’ve encountered the term “behavioral interviewing” at some point during your job search. This is an increasingly popular interview format based on the belief that past behavior is the greatest predictor of future behavior. Typically interviewers ask questions like, “Tell me about a time when you had a conflict with a coworker, and how you chose to handle that situation.” During a behavioral interview,...
 
  Helping Your Network to Help You (Find A Job)
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Oct, 2010
Remember the infamous scene in Jerry McGuire where Tom Cruise is standing in a locker room, begging Cuba Gooding Jr. to stop shooting his own career in the foot? You know the line: “Help me help you!” Many of us have family and friends who don’t really understand what we do for a living. I personally have a cousin who can’t explain her own husband’s job. We often recognize that those around us don’t really appreciate our...
 
  Helping yourself (and your job search) while you help others
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Oct, 2010
Job seekers often complain of feeling like they’re anonymously sending their resumes off into a black hole—never to be acknowledged or contacted. In today’s automated world, it can often be difficult to know if your resume is ever even seen by a live human being. Everyone knows that having a contact on the inside of an organization can greatly improve your chances of their responding to your application. How do you cultiv...
 
  How to Mention Unrelated Work Experience on Your Resume
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Oct, 2010
Many candidates who come to us for resume help have the same question. They have years of professional work experience, but a lot of it isn’t relevant to the position they’re currently seeking. On the one hand, they don’t want to waste resume space detailing work that doesn’t relate to their application. On the other hand, they don’t want to omit years of work that developed them as a professional. THE RIGHT PHRASE I us...

  Is there still a market for what you do?
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Oct, 2010
Most people know that certain sectors of the economy have been hit harder than others, like real estate, construction, and banking. If you’ve spent the last decade or two working in those industries, what are you supposed to do now? As you begin your job search and sit down to write your resume, you should ask yourself an important question: “Do any companies pay people to do what I do?” Remember five years ago when the...
 
  Looking For Work? Have You Considered Part-Time?
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Oct, 2010
I wish I could quote some studies showing how quickly the job market is improving, but unfortunately, things are still tough out there. Many of the unemployed have held full-time, high-paying jobs their entire careers and are struggling to land their next position. If you find yourself in this spot, limiting your job search to only full-time openings may be severely limiting your opportunities. The fact is, many compani...
 
  Managing Your Online Brand and Digital Dirt
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Oct, 2010
On the one hand, the Internet is a wonderful place to get your name out as a highly qualified job candidate. On the other hand, there may be information floating around about you that you’d rather was not shared with everyone in the world. How can you determine what’s out there in cyberspace? Googling your own name is a popular technique for digging up digital dirt. You will certainly find some information this way, but...
 
  Should you be worried about age discrimination?
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Oct, 2010
Almost every client I work with who’s above the age of 40 asks the same question at some point: Do I need to make myself look younger on my resume? The fear that they are being skipped over for younger candidates is clearly a widespread concern among today’s job seekers. While I certainly encourage those with 30 or more years of work experience to only include what’s most relevant on their resumes, this article in the Wal...
 
  Should You Be Worried About Temp Jobs On Your Resume?
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Oct, 2010
In the midst of the Great Recession, many workers have found themselves cobbling together temporary or short-term jobs in order to pay the bills. These workers often become very concerned about how this work activity will appear on their resumes. If this is a concern of yours, take heart—many people are in the exact same situation. The first thing you should know is that the current economy has forced many workers to take...
