  Stop Being A Victim In Your Career
by Deborah Brown-Volkman - Dec, 2011
I know what it feels like to be trapped in a career. You dread going to work, but believe you have no options. You dream of greater things, but don’t know or don’t believe you can get them. You feel hopeless, powerless, and alone. What’s missing is the bigger picture of where you are headed. Without a destination, you are like a leaf on a tree going where the wind takes you, rather than being the tree that stands strong de...
 
  What are QR Codes and How Can They Help Your Job Search?
by Barbara Safani - Dec, 2011
I’m always on the prowl for new tools to help market my clients effectively. A leading-edge marketing strategy can help differentiate you in a crowded market and get your phone to ring more frequently. Lately I’ve been fascinated with the growing use of the QR code. QR (quick response) codes are currently one of the hottest trends in marketing. They’re popping up everywhere, including product packaging, business cards, sig...
 
  How the OFCCP’s Thirst for Data Will Impact You
by Stephanie Thomas, Ph.D. - Dec, 2011
The OFCCP wants more data. The agency’s current proposal for all of this additional data has been described by some as both “burdensome” and “stealthy”. McGuire Woods, a 900-person law firm based in Richmond, Virginia, went so far as to say that the OFCCP “does not understand the private sector or have any apparent concern about the burdens and confidentiality issues these proposals place on contractors.” In fact, the OFCCP i...
 
  OFCCP FAQ Series: Federal Contractor Selection System (FCSS)
by Carla Irwin - Dec, 2011
Beginning in January 2011, OFCCP implemented its new audit strategy that moved the philosophy of compliance evaluations from management to enforcement. Director Shiu discontinued the previous compliance evaluation strategy of Active Case Management (ACM) and rang in the new year with a new directive, Active Case Enforcement (ACE). The switch to ACE is part of the OFCCP’s plan to continually increase efforts to enforce com...
 
  Are Resumes Dead?
by Georgia Adamson - Nov, 2011
Occasionally I read something by a recognized expert on employment issues or job search techniques, suggesting—or plainly stating—that resumes are dead and job seekers shouldn’t bother using a resume to secure their next position. If you’re sitting there staring at your shiny new resume, especially if you’ve just paid a professional to create it, you might be wondering whether you’ve wasted your time and hard-earned money. Tak...
 
  Case Study: Increasing Awareness of Non-Traditional Careers
by Joan Runnheim Olson - Nov, 2011
If you’re a counselor at the middle school or secondary level, the following case study is for you. How can you increase parents’ awareness of non-traditional careers? What activities would you use to help parents learn more about non-traditional careers. i.e., male or female-dominated? Parents may a major role in their child’s career choice. That’s why it’s important that parents encourage their children to consider...
 
  Networking With a School or Corporate Alumni Connection
by Barbara Safani - Nov, 2011
One of the best ways to foster a networking relationship is through a school or corporate alumni connection. Such connections are considered warm leads because a certain degree of relationship already exists. Warm leads are more viable than cold calls where no relationship is present. Members of the same affinity group are often more likely to help one another. But how do you approach people authentically, without making them...
 
  Seven Things You Don’t Want to Have on Your Resume
by Barbara Safani - Nov, 2011
While every job seeker is unique, here are some general items I recommend leaving off of your resume to achieve optimal results. 1. Objectives Most hiring managers I talk to are not interested in reading resume objectives. Frequently objectives sound very cliched and they rarely communicate what a candidate can do for an employer. Instead, use a professional summary that outlines your competencies and proves how you can h...
 
  Sweden Engineers Gender Equality
by Joan Runnheim Olson - Nov, 2011
I have talked about it before- socialization plays a big role in gender stereotyping and ultimately career decision-making. From an early age, girls are dressed in pink, boys in blue. Girls are given dolls to play with and boys trucks. Around the home, girls are typically given the tasks of washing the dishes and cleaning the house, while boys mow the lawn and change oil in the car. Traditional gender roles often carry over in...
 
  What’s Driving Your Career?
by Beverly Harvey - Nov, 2011
Is it your personal vision, passions, and innate talents … or is it uncertainty, confusion or even desperation? Are you clear about the type of position that would be intrinsically fulfilling … or are you willing to accept whatever you can get? When you hear the words personal vision, passion, drive, and innate talents what emotions do you feel? Energy, excitement, enthusiasm, curiosity, hope? Do you feel like you want to g...
