  Four Words to Avoid on Resumes or Cover Letters
by Robin Schlinger - Apr, 2015
Can’t “Can’t” is the first word to avoid on your resume because your resume should show you at your best, outlining your achievements, skills, education and overall fit for the job you want. If you “cannot” travel, work on weekends, handle certain tasks or function in rush situations, do not share that information on your resume or cover letter. That is a conversation for later, perhaps during the interview. If the job post...
  7 Ways to Self-Promote at Work with Grace
by Lisa Rangel - Apr, 2015
You don’t have to be an aggressive attention-seeker to get ahead at work. In fact, the less obnoxious you are, the better. Instead, build positive relationships with everyone you can, both inside and outside your organization. Get ahead by helping others succeed, improving their perceptions of you, and doing the marketing legwork required to stay visible. This way, when opportunities come along for promotions, you’ll be...
  11 Ways to Master Your Professional Presence
by Valerie Sokolosky - Apr, 2015
Who has a presence you admire? What words would you use to describe that person? Is it how they communicate, how they give engaging presentations, or how they hold meaningful conversations? They may bring a spark the moment they enter the room. They may have a profound self-awareness, naturally knowing how to take control in most situations, being rarely intimidated. Typically they are well dressed and groomed, exhibiting a pr...
  4 Ways To Leave Your Job Gracefully
by Stacey Lane - Apr, 2015
“I just need to know how to do it” said a new client. She was referring to how to quit her job. I’ve blogged about this in the past but her request, and what we discussed got me thinking – maybe you, too, are wondering about how to part ways with your employer. If you’re just embarking on a job search, my advice can be summed up in two words. Horse. Cart. Remember – they go in that order. Don’t worry about how you’re goi...
  Be someone people are happy to refer
by Sherri Edwards - Apr, 2015
There are professionals who match people to jobs or business opportunities and others who connect people with similar interests. Professional associations or academic institutions may match mentors with mentees. All around us are opportunities to link people with people, or people to information. The success of these referrals is typically predicated on how much the referring party knows about each of the others. Everyone w...
  Keeping the Resume Real
by Robin Schlinger - Mar, 2015
The goal of a resume is to get you to the next stage, an interview; and a great resume is written in a way that allows you to ace the interview and possibly move on to the stage after that, a job offer. None of that may happen if you make these three mistakes. Recently a blogger on resumes suggested that all tasks in a job lend themselves to being described as an accomplishment. He advised a college student who handed out...
  Company Loyalty–How Much Do You “Owe” Them?
by Georgia Adamson - Mar, 2015
The title of this post is somewhat of a trick question. When a company pays your salary, as agreed when you took the job, you probably do owe them something in return. In other words, in most cases you should deliver whatever you agreed to do in exchange for that salary. On the other hand, what if the company expects actions that are, for example, unethical or borderline illegal? Then you’re looking at possible consequences...
  Non-communication is the new normal
by Sherri Edwards - Mar, 2015
At the risk of severely dating myself or alienating my readers, I‘ll start with a confession: I still expect people to do what they say they will do. I know, I know, I know. Call me a dreamer. Recently, after a series of disappointments due to people not following through on commitments, I asked someone what they thought about this apparent trend. I was told to “change my expectations.” At first, it seemed like a puzzling r...
  Salary: 7 Tips To Help You Ask for What You Want
by Caroline Dowd-Higgins - Mar, 2015
Salary negotiation…it’s right up there with root canals and tax audits in the minds of many. There’s no doubt, it can be challenging to be in the negotiating “hot seat”. In a recent study conducted by, 31,000 people were surveyed about salary negotiation, and over half responded that they had never asked for a raise. The most common reasons given for not negotiating included: feeling “uncomfortable”; and feelin...
