Networking: Script it out; just don’t sound like a telemarketer
by Hallie Crawford - Mar, 2011
I was talking to my client Kellie recently about her job search. She had a few calls to make to prospective employers to follow up on her interviews. (Yes luckily, I’m finding recruiters are calling people again, and I have several clients out there going on interviews.) Kellie was nervous, she didn’t know what to say to them and didn’t want to choke up or sound unprofessional on the phone or on their voicemail. This is imp...

Choosing a Path
by Nan S. Russell - Mar, 2011
Reading in the airport while waiting for a flight to Houston, a housekeeper was tidying around me when approached by another facilities employee. After a few minutes of easily overheard chit-chat, she received coaching from her now apparent supervisor. "You know," he said "I'd like you to pace yourself." Intrigued by his words, I stopped reading to eavesdrop and heard as he told her, "You're doing too good a job. You don't...
Manage Your Career with Mentoring
by Thomas J. Denham - Mar, 2011
Just about everyone needs a mentor at some point in their career. A mentor is a trusted seasoned professional who guides a less experienced individual in his/her development through listening, instruction, advice and encouragement. This can also include being a coach for better career decision-making. The mentor can be someone internally or outside the organization that has overcome obstacles on the road to success. Often...
Give Thanks, Get Hired
by Kevin Donlin - Feb, 2011
One day in September 1996, I was talking to Steve, my manager. We had just interviewed a woman for a job. Discussing how we had applied to our company, I mentioned that I had mailed a thank-you note to the manager who hired me. “So did I,” replied Steve. Steve and I were both hired. Coincidence? The next day, we each received a thank-you note in the mail from Leitha, the woman we interviewed. We hired Leitha....
Why you need your own website - and how to get one!
by Miriam Salpeter - Feb, 2011
Do you believe you need an online presence to help you land a job — or to help you manage your career? I spent 45 minutes last week trying to convince a career-changing friend she needed HerName.com. She is finishing an advanced degree and will be looking for opportunities in a teaching specialty. She can’t understand why it is important to have an online presence, and she made some good points: - I’m going to get a job b...
Enough with the Excuses-Just Get Started
by Hallie Crawford - Feb, 2011
I was talking to my group coaching client, Jodi, this week. She was concerned that she hadn’t yet identified her ideal career, and was putting a lot of pressure on herself to not only figure it out, but to have a plan with each specific action step she needed to take to make it happen. I told her, like I tell all of my clients, that this isn’t realistic. Career transition is a process that has to unfold. It’s organic and y...
What Kind of Skier Are You?
by Christine Hassler - Feb, 2011
This past weekend I spoke to a group of professionals of all ages on the topic of career transitions. Mark Goldston, CEO of an extremely successful internet company kicked off the event with his biggest “pearls of wisdom” and there was one particular metaphor he used that I want to share with you. He asked us all to envision our career as a mountain and ourselves as the skier. We have choices when it comes to which path...
Job Seeker: How To Unearth Value From Twitter
by Jacqui Barrett-Poindexter - Feb, 2011
Attempts to tame the Twitter Wild West abound. Some well-meaning, expert advice is on point while other opinions should be taken with a grain of salt. The splendor of Twitter is the absolute control you have to read or respond to the words flagging you down for attention. Tools like TweetDeck or HootSuite facilitate organizing your followers into ‘lists’ to ensure you can focus in on those conversations most relevant to you...
Interview With a Mentor
by Judith Lindenberger - Feb, 2011
Lois J. Zachary, Ed.D., President, Leadership Development Services, LLC, Phoenix, Arizona, is one of my mentors. I met Lois in 1997 and from the first time I met her she has encouraged me to think big and do more. One of my favorite quotes, which I learned from Lois, is how I sum up our relationship … “Most people don’t know that there are angels whose only job is to make sure that you don’t get too comfortable, and fall aslee...
