  How a New Grad Cut His Job Search Time in Half Using Twitter
by Joan Runnheim Olson - Jul, 2011
How long is the job search? 27 weeks, says the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS)! Is there a shortcut? One jobseeker found it ... in the form of Twitter. Stephen Moyer, one of the 13 jobseekers featured in The Twitter Job Search Guide (JIST, 2010) authored by Chandlee Bryan (@chandlee), Deb Dib (@CEOCoach), and myself (@SusanWhitcomb), is a stellar case study on how Twitter can work wonders in a job search. As Chandlee li...
 
  How LinkedIn Resume Builder Can Ruin Your Job Search
by Louise Fletcher - Jul, 2011
I’m a big fan of LinkedIn and encourage all my clients to use it actively. I’m even writing a guide on how to make the most of it as a job search tool. But not everything LinkedIn does is a good idea and the Resume Builder tool is a perfect example of this. It sounds great in theory – create a LinkedIn profile and then transform it into a resume at the click of a button with no extra work. Who wouldn’t want that? Here’s...
 
  If You’re Not Going to be Genuine, Don’t Bother
by Louise Fletcher - Jul, 2011
Not long ago, I was invited to join a brand new business social networking site. Because I like the person who sent the invite, I clicked ‘yes’ and signed up. But having looked around, I decided it was much too early stage to spend time on. For the last 3 days, I’ve received an email from the site founder. The first one thanked me for signing up and made reference to the fact I’m a resume writer. I thought that was a nice t...
 
  The key to successful career change
by Hallie Crawford - Jul, 2011
As a certified career coach, I have worked with hundreds of clients on identifying and realizing their dream jobs. Throughout this work, I have noticed that one consistent theme separates clients who are successful in their goals, versus those that continuously struggle. The defining factor is commitment. I have seen this play out time and time again. A client who comes to career coaching completely confused and miserab...
 
  The One Rule of Resume Writing You Can’t Afford to Ignore
by Louise Fletcher - Jul, 2011
Just lately, I’ve read a rash of articles claiming to reveal the hard and fast rules of resume writing. They have titles like “5 rules of a great resume” or “10 words you must never use on your resume.” Maybe you’ve read some of these articles. Maybe you’ve even made changes to your resume after finding out that the word “innovative” is now forbidden and must be replaced, or that using the phrase “self-motivated” is akin t...
 
  Why You Don’t Have to Explain Everything on your Resume
by Louise Fletcher - Jul, 2011
One of the most common mistakes people make when writing a resume is to try and explain everything. Every detail, every situation, every technology used, every job held no matter how short – everything. But this is a mistake. The job of your resume is not to tell the clearest story of what happened – it’s to show your experience in the best light. The Spotlight Analogy Imagine watching a play at the theater. At certain...
 
  Grumbling About Work? Get Over It!
by Dawn Lennon - Jul, 2011
It’s become a pastime, a bit of on-the-job sport. Grumbling starts out innocently but can become all-consuming, taking on many forms like: - Harping about the boss’s annoying habits - Whining about boring work - Complaining about your cubicle location - Obsessing over how long it might take to get promoted The more we grumble, the more we grumble. It’s not a cure for anything, but a perpetuator. Who’s...
 
  Horrible Bosses: Art imitiates life for many employees
by Kesi Stribling - Jul, 2011
The movie Horrible Bosses pulled in $28.3 million during its premier weekend. That should come as no surprise as the summer heat beckons us to cooler environments. Movie theaters are the perfect place to enjoy a little humor while keeping cool. The draw, however, was not solely the promise of frigid air for a few hours. Folks flocked to the big screen comedy to gain a glimpse into the characters’ world of horrible bosses – and...
 
  Hungry for Leadership Success? Whip Up a Batch of Principles
by Dawn Lennon - Jul, 2011
Serve them to your employees. They’re as hungry for success as you are. Employees know the drill: They’re expected to deliver specific results for which they’re compensated. The better they perform, the more likely their careers will advance. When they understand what matters to their bosses, they can perform with minimal uncertainty. Bosses who aren’t clear about what drives their leadership and who act inconsistently...
 
  Superstar or Has Been? Career Tips to Stay On Top
by Dawn Lennon - Jul, 2011
The rush is in the reaching. Ask any athlete whose career is on the rise. Every day is about putting it all out there for the team, the fans, and the games they love.
