by Barbara Safani - Apr, 2010
I recently spent two weeks touring college campuses with my daughter. I quickly became fascinated with the process...everything from the information sessions to the student guided tours to the admissions requirements made me think about what hiring authorities at companies could learn from the college admissions process. What struck me on these tours were six things that schools practice routinely that you would think would...
Using Literary Techniques To Make Your Resume More Interesting
by Debra Wheatman - Apr, 2010
What word is this? Resume Without the appropriate context, we don't know. If I put it in a sentence, "If you want the job you better brush up your resume" you immediately know what I am talking about. If I say, "Hey, you better resume your job search before all the good jobs are gone," again you know. I can even say "Hey, if you want to resume your job search, you better brush up your resume." Now I used two words that...

by Dawn Lennon - Apr, 2010
In the dumps? Disgusted? Feel like no one’s struggling with career frustrations and business uncertainties the way you are? Makes you ask yourself, “What’s my problem?” Well, that’s how I felt. It doesn’t matter whether you’re an employee, a business owner, a budding entrepreneur, college student, or unemployed. We just don’t have all the answers.

Day In The Life - How To Manage Four Jobs
by Alexandra Levit - Apr, 2010
You may have heard the phrase, “if you want to get something done, ask a busy person.” In my experience, this is true. For instance, try eating at two restaurants – one crowded and one empty – and notice the speed of the service at each one. I guarantee that the crowded restaurant will be faster every time. The busier you are, the more quickly you learn how to work efficiently, and you can get more tasks done in less time...

Your network of business, professional and personal contacts is the most valuabl...

You Can Do This. Tell Your Story.
by Suzanne Bates - Apr, 2010
Suddenly it’s become this thing. I didn’t used to hear it that often but lately everybody’s talking about how their leaders need to tell stories. The reason most people can’t find their leadership stories is because when asked, they can only remember the stories they’ve been telling at neighborhood cocktail parties or around the family dinner table on Thanksgiving. You know - the one everybody likes about how in third gra...
How to Target Hiring Managers and Crack the Hidden Job Market
by Kevin Donlin - Apr, 2010
Fact: The advertised job market is literally the tip of the iceberg. Fully 70-80% of jobs go unadvertised by employers, who fear being deluged by hundreds of resumes from applicants, most of whom won’t be qualified. With that in mind, it makes sense to spend about 80% of your time cracking this “hidden” market of unadvertised jobs.
