How to Utilize Similarities Between House Shopping and Job Hunting
by Jessica Stasiw - Sep, 2014
Having your house listed is similar to animal visitations at the zoo. There is a consistent parade of strangers coming in and out of your dwelling, touching your things, critiquing where you live, and tracking in dirt. My house was recently listed and while I went through the experience I had to in turn look for a new place to live. We are still currently on the hunt for the right house, and let me say there have been some mis...

Video Interviews: Challenges & Opportunities
by Georgia Adamson - Sep, 2014
A while ago I mentioned the idea of “canned” video interviews that some companies were instituting in their hiring process (make that screening process). Now I have a first-hand client story that points out some of the perils these interviews pose for job seekers. One of my clients was required to undergo a video-webcam interview that he expected would contain five questions. After just one question, he found he was una...
Building Relationships –Your Competitive Advantage!
by Dorothy Montgomery - Sep, 2014
Not marketing. Not strategy. Not technology. It is building relationships that remains the ultimate competitive advantage in business today both because building relationships is powerful and yet so hard to start and sustain.

They were holding an annual meeting in Madrid and the goal of the...
The Foundation of Any Job Search or Transition
by Bernie Frazier - Sep, 2014
When working with clients today or working with candidates in my past life, there’s always been one thing successful people do that unsuccessful ones typically don’t do – be clear about what they want. On the surface it seems like a simple thing, but if you stop and think about it, answering the question, “What do you want?” isn’t always so simple.

A Professional Resume: What It Means and How to Create It

Second, the content conforms to expectations for professional resumes...

Taking the Fear Out of Public Speaking
by Corinna Klawon - Sep, 2014
As a college grad, I always feared taking the classes I would have to present at. I remember it like it was yesterday; the sweaty palms, the feeling of wanting to vomit, and the thoughts going through my head: “What if I forget and have a complete blackout...Oh dear, and what if I stumble over my own words...I mean, everybody will be staring.” It certainly wasn’t a healthy approach because little did I know that I would get in...

by Carole Kanchier - Sep, 2014
QUESTERS Take Charge of Your Career Are you a Quester? Would you like to become one? What are Questers, anyway? Questers have been around for centuries. Many have made significant contributions to humankind. Galilei Galilio, the Italian physicist, proved the earth revolved around the sun; and Dame Margaret Thatcher fought for the right of individuals to run their own lives.
