References as Rainmakers
by Mary Jeanne Vincent - Jul, 2010
As a job seeker, you understand the importance of having a list of solid references — those folks who can’t say enough great things about you. But today’s job candidate needs to go beyond simply compiling a list of folks who will say positive things about him when a potential employer calls. Today’s A-list candidate seeks out references who are rainmakers, mentors and salespeople. People who can and will actively promote...
Debrief After Your Interview
by Ford R. Myers - Jul, 2010
There is rarely, if ever, a time when you will be hired following just one interview. You will typically go through multiple rounds of interviews for any position. Conducting your own formal, written debrief after the interview will give you the information you need to refine and improve your performance for the future. Consider the following strategies for a comprehensive debrief of your interviews: Interview preparatio...
You Don't Need An Expert
by Nan S. Russell - Jul, 2010
You don't need an employee engagement expert to confirm what you already know and Gallup polling substantiates: the majority of employees are disengaged at work. You don't need an employee survey to tell you why discretionary efforts are tamed, passions for work are fleeting, and ideas are tethered. And you don't need a consultant to explain why cynicism is up, enthusiasm is down, and trust is the new workplace currency. Al...
How to network when you hate to network
by Elizabeth Freedman - Jul, 2010
We all hear about how important networking is for our careers, but many of us simply don’t do it. In fact, some of us hate the practice, and would rather eat an entire copy of my book, Work 101: Learning the Ropes of the Workplace without Hanging Yourself, (sorry, shameless plug) than network, even if it meant we’d wind up in better jobs with better opportunities as a result. Does this make any sense to you? It’s time to gr...
What to do when offers for help don’t pan out
by Elizabeth Freedman - Jul, 2010
First, let’s accept a little fact about people: They lie. All the time. So, when Mr. Smith is offering to forward your resume to his contacts, he might be sincere and really mean it. Or, he might have a problem with saying no, might be afraid to disappoint you, so he offers to help, even though he has no intention of doing so. Or, Mr. Smith may have had the best of intentions, but he got slammed with a project at work, or his...
Giving Feedback To Gen Y Employees
by David Lee - Jul, 2010
"Giving Gen Y Employees Corrective Feedback: What Can Video Games Teach You?" One of the biggest complaints I hear from managers about their Gen Y employees is how defensive they get when given corrective feedback. You can dramatically increase how receptive your Gen Y employees are to feedback if you borrow from the world of video games. In video games, feedback is an essential part of the game. It’s how you know you...
What Would Bill Clinton Do?
by Suzanne Bates - Jul, 2010
I’ve never met Bill Clinton but many of my friends have, and all say the same thing about him. He’s so...in the moment. When he shakes your hand he focuses on you like you’re the most important person in the world. For that fleeting moment – 30 seconds or a minute- you believe you’re his nhew BFF. Even if you’re a Republican. That got me wondering – what would Bill Clinton do if his cell phone rang while he was locked i...
Facing the Fear in Your Career Search
by Jacqui Barrett-Poindexter - Jul, 2010
In what I envision at least a 2-part series on “Facing the Fear in Your Career Search,” my husband, Rob, starts us off with a riveting story on how our journey into a storm created one of our most memorable experiences this summer (perhaps ever). Likewise, in my nearly 13 years’ experience consulting with, coaching and strategizing career positioning messages for career transition-ers, I hear the fear over and over, and ove...
Jobseekers – Eight Tips for Getting Your E-mail Read
by Julie Walraven - Jul, 2010
Nothing is more frustrating as a job seeker than sending an e-mail out and not getting a response or even knowing if it was received. You might be doing several thing to block you from even getting to the employer’s inbox and you could look more professional when your e-mail does arrive in the inbox. #1. Your e-mail address should be your name and it should be on your resume as part of the header. If your name is John Sm...
Seven Key Aspects of a Professional BUSINESS PHILOSOPHY
by Rob Taub - Jul, 2010
The dictionary definition of philosophy is “a set of principles, beliefs and aims, underlying somebody's practice or conduct”. As such, a “business Philosophy” can be both a guide to help you grow a business, and in the ‘business of careers’ it can be a guide to help you decide what to do...and where to do it. So, define what you consider important, and you can be on your way to uncovering your “best fit” job opportunities....
