  Contacting agency recruiters only when you need a job? That is not networking.
by Sherri Edwards - Nov, 2015
Recently I read a “success story” written by someone who was very proud of their networking efforts to get a new job. They had simply sent their resume to a handful of recruiters and waited to see what came back. In a matter of weeks, an interview was arranged and they accepted a contract position. The problem is that they had not learned much about the company in advance of the interview and only knew what the company’s websi...
 
  Do I have to use LinkedIn in my job search?
by Stacey Lane - Nov, 2015
No. You don’t have to use LinkedIn – nor do you have to have a resume or do any networking. But would you ever attempt to be in a serious job search without a great resume and tapping into your professional network? Probably not. So why, in 2015, would you attempt a job search without leveraging LinkedIn? Here are some interesting stats about how 10,000 professionals who recently changed jobs did it. But back to using L...
 
  Do you know why you are unemployed?
by Sherri Edwards - Nov, 2015
If you are thinking this is a dumb question, you may want to think again. Unless you are aware of the circumstances that led to your layoff or termination and are also very clear about your current market value, you’ll be unable to craft a strategy for moving forward. Although statistics may show there are more jobs available this year, what you actually do and how you do it will play a significant part in determining whether...
 
  The Iceberg Illusion and Why Career Comparison Sucks
by Stacey Lane - Nov, 2015
I know many professionals find that comparing themselves – their performance, their results, and their career trajectory – to others’ helps keep them sharp. They use it as a gauge of how well they’re doing or where they want to be. I’m not a fan of comparison, even though I catch myself doing it on a regular basis. Comparison erodes self-esteem (who’s “better?”) and it disconnects you from your sense of self (full of “shou...
 
  Why Do We Resist Change?
by Marshall Goldsmith - Nov, 2015
Because we’re deluded! We all delude ourselves about our achievements, our status, and our contributions. We Overestimate our contribution to a project; Have an elevated opinion of our professional skills and standing among our peers; Exaggerate our project’s impact on profitability by discounting real and hidden costs. Many of our delusions come from our association with success, not failure. We get positive reinforcem...
 
  Are Resumes Withering?
by Jacqui Barrett-Poindexter - Nov, 2015
While technology is an important part of the job search equation, it doesn't trump thought-work, introspection and proper targeting. Yes, totally ignoring technology can potentially be harmful, in that disregarding its value could equate to missed opportunities. However, overshadowing the process with a hyper-focus on technology's ability to catapult your results can be equally harmful. Why You Must Not "Forget Your Resu...
 
  Is Your Body Language Costing You A Promotion?
by Melody Wilding - Nov, 2015
For the past two months, you’ve had your eye on that promotion. It’s between you and your colleague, and you really want the job. So you put in crazy hours, deliver top-notch work, and take on extra projects to show your work. You don’t see any reason it shouldn’t go to you. But then time comes for the promotion to be announced, it goes to your colleague instead. What could possibly have gone wrong? Turns out, it may tot...
 
  When I started focusing on the right things
by Jacqui Barrett-Poindexter - Nov, 2015
My husband recently summed up a work-life conversation, saying, “It’s a funny thing, but when you start focusing on the right things, everything else starts falling into place.” I cling to this, as I pursue a new phase in my journey. Just seven months ago, I felt adrift as frustration began seeping into my foundation. My resume and career storytelling business was booming, and life at the lake with my husband was an actu...
 
  3 Reasons Your Consultant Brand Is Failing
by Abby Locke - Nov, 2015
Congratulations! You took the brave step and leaped into the world of free agents. After years and years of experience in the corporate world, you decided it was time for you to call your own shots. That's good...but why are you not experiencing the same success. Sure, working on your own and having to market yourself is hard...but you did so successfully as a corporate executive, so what is really wrong now? When you sw...
 
  3-Part Strategy To Beat Your Competition To The Job
by Louise Garver - Nov, 2015
The statistics prove the results – more than 75% of jobs are filled before they are formally advertised. At one time or another you may have even experienced finding a job through a resource other than by submitting your resume to a job board for an advertised position. Executives have all heard about the hidden job market, back door career opportunities, or whatever you want to label it. But do you know how effective caree...
