  E-mail netiquette
by Debra Wheatman - Oct, 2012
Why is it that communicating online is such a challenge? The minute we get in front of email, we rattle off messages that are unclear, with typographical and grammatical errors. Why is writing an email different than writing a letter? (a lost art at this point) How many times have you written an email with the aforementioned problems, but other issues as well? Have you ever gone back and read an email and thought to yourself “...
 
  Employer Interviewing Tips
by Debra Wheatman - Oct, 2012
Since I spend a significant amount of time posting information, providing advice that helps those seeking employment, I thought in this post, I would reference some useful tips for hiring managers to help make effective decisions. Just as important as it is for an interviewee to put his or her best foot forward, so too is it critical that a hiring manager representing their firm also make a positive impression. The interview p...

  Seasoned Advice for Mature Workers
by Linda K. Rolie, M.A., CVC - Oct, 2012
A significantly growing population of job hunters, and those who are landing jobs, is between the ages of 55 to 71 (and beyond). You may have heard, “age 50 is the youth of old age” or “age 60 is the new 50” and so on. Various opinions exist about whether age-related biases negatively impact these mid-lifers’ employability. There are mature workers who are far from elder status but feel they are discriminated against due t...
 
  Networking Strategies for the Career Changer
by Heather Mundell - Oct, 2012
My client, Megan, is in her late 40s and wants to change careers. The jobs Megan is considering to target are not easily found online. She's unsure of what are the most common job titles that are most relevant for her to pursue and how to tap into job openings (or whether there even are job openings). I've said this before: changing careers is not for the faint of heart or the person who's in a big rush! Megan, however, is m...
 
  Tired of looking for a job? 5 tips to prepare to start your own business
by Miriam Salpeter - Oct, 2012
Are you dissatisfied with your job, or reading the writing on the wall that suggests it may be time to think of your own exit strategy? If so, you are in good company. A Mercer’s What’s Working™ survey last year, conducted over two quarters, included 2,400 workers in the U.S. They found, “nearly one in three (32%) U.S. workers is seriously considering leaving his or her organization at the present time, up sharply from 23% in...
 
  Ask the Career Coach: "How Exactly Do I Set up an Informational Interview?"
by Heather Mundell - Oct, 2012
Informational interviews aren't just for college students and recent grads - they're still a fantastic way to research a field or a company. As long as you are just meeting to get information and aren't asking for a job, people are usually willing to say yes to a request if their schedule permits. Here are my tips for setting up an informational interview: Send an email or call them In many industries, voice mail i...
 
  Finding Happiness at Work
by Heather Mundell - Oct, 2012
Happiness at Work For many people out there participating in the daily grind, work is not something that makes them happy. As a matter of fact, getting out of work is probably the highlight of their day. While this may be the case for a larger than normal segment of the population, there is a way to find happiness at work—if you are willing to look for it. If not, maybe it’s time you started looking for something you might...
 
  Is It Your Boss That's Bad, or Are You Just Hard to Get Along With?
by Heather Mundell - Oct, 2012
In my former life, I was an HR director. HR folks can be a cautious, cynical bunch. Reason #1 - they are the legal front line when things go south with employees. Reason #2 - they've seen a lot of bizarre and bad behavior at work (and they're called in to help deal with it). I inadvertently had my HR hat on when I read What to Do If Your Boss Is the Problem on the Wall Street Journal online. It's a good article with...
 
  What to Do When You're Overwhelmed by Too Many Career Ideas
by Heather Mundell - Oct, 2012
Many of the people who hire me as their coach aren't struggling with a lack of career options. Rather they are stuck because they have too many ideas and don't know where to start to narrow them down. This reminds me of a story a friend of mine told me who moved from the U.S. to New Zealand for a year. She lived in a town in New Zealand where the local store had four kinds of cereal, two kinds of soap, one kind of lettuce -...
