An Insider's View of Negotiation with OFCCP
by Sandra Zeigler, Esq. - Jun, 2012
Most OFCCP allegations are resolved through negotiation. Negotiations at the agency level usually end in a signed conciliation agreement. The purpose of this article is to walk you through the negotiation process in case you find yourself considering this option for resolving matters with OFCCP. Why conciliate? You agree with OFCCP that you are in violation of the law. [Rare to get such a concession. Some technical viola...
What to Expect During an OFCCP Audit?
by Julia Mendez, PHR, CELS - Jun, 2012
With compliance evaluations of federal contractors and subcontractors nearing 5,000 per fiscal year in the last several years, it's likely that one of your locations will receive a compliance review notice sooner rather than later. All federal contractors and subcontractors should be well prepared for an audit notice. Being caught off guard if the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) knocks on your door could...
Reflections about Testifying Before the Subcommittee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions
by Alissa Horvitz, Esq. - Jun, 2012
On April 18, 2012, I had the honor of testifying before the U.S. House of Representatives' Subcommittee on Health, Employment, Labor and Pensions about various OFCCP-related issues. I have to say that it was one of the highlights of my career so far. It was a lot of work to prepare for the hearing, but I would gladly do it again, if invited. The genesis for my testimony began in February 2012 when the U.S. Chamber of C...
Can’t break the bad habit? Change your routine
by Hallie Crawford - Jun, 2012
I was talking to my career coaching client Chris from Chicago the other day, and he brought up one of the techniques he’s using to help him in his job search and in his life in general. He has a tough habit of focusing too much on why he doesn’t like his job. It’s hard to break out of this habit because he’s there every day for 8 hours! At the end of the day he feels drained and frustrated and it can be difficult for him t...
Resume Trends: Modernizing Your Resume
by Georgia Adamson - Jun, 2012
Recently I participated in a teleseminar titled “Modernizing Your Resumes and Cover Letters,” presented by the Resume Writing Academy and Career Thought Leaders Consortium. This seminar gave me a lot of food for thought, including the fact that change has been happening so rapidly, it’s hard to keep up! Among other things, this means you can’t keep using your old resume indefinitely. If you haven’t updated it within the past y...
Creating a Fresh Resume for a Job With Your Current Employer
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Jun, 2012
Thinking about applying for a job with your current employer? Many employees consider doing the same thing every year in hopes of being promoted internally. Of course, in most cases, employees are required to start the application process all over again. This can feel intimidating but actually isn’t a bad thing at all. By starting over, you have a chance to review your current skills and accomplishments and improve your re...
Mastering The Law of Career Attraction
by Robin Fisher Roffer - Jun, 2012
If everything you’re seeking is seeking you, then you better get clear on what you really want. I’ve been hearing from many of my followers that they feel stuck. They’ve achieved a great deal in their careers, but don’t know where the road they are on is taking them. Many want to move forward, but the economy and a tough job market have held them in place. Although those are real barriers, I believe that a lack of visio...
I Just Got Hired for a Role that Never Existed
by Nimish Thakkar - Jun, 2012
The Hidden Job Market refers to over 75% job openings that are never advertised. Yes, the employment ads (online and offline) account for just a small fraction of openings that actually exist. As a career coach and resume writer, I have observed that most of these jobs are filled through networking and other internal channels that job seekers rarely care to exploit. The Hidden Job Market is powerful, but the strategy that I...
Don’t just network – Network strategically
by Hallie Crawford - Jun, 2012
Now that I have started working with a marketing consultant I realize that networking requires more of a strategy and more thought than I ever knew. My career coaching client Kelly is a great example. She recently made a list of networking contacts to build her new business in home renovation. We came up with this basic strategy to help her create a structure for her networking efforts and not have them be haphazard. Once...
How to figure out your skills
by Miriam Salpeter - Jun, 2012
“To thine own self be true.” It’s more than just a line from Shakespeare! Wouldn’t it be nice if everyone who worked had the luxury of spending their work hours doing something that they enjoyed and was true to their values and skills? If you are considering a new career, have you done any thinking about how that career intersects with who you are (or want to be)? Focusing your your values is one way to help direct your se...
