  Don’t throw your computer out the window
by Hallie Crawford - Oct, 2011
I hear this all the time from career coaching clients, “I submitted my resume online and when I copied and pasted it to the form, the formatting was completely lost and it looked like junk.” I know what this is like. This has happened to me before too, and it can drive you nuts! You need to realize that employers knows this happens. I imagine they give some leeway when it comes to formatting when you have submitted your res...
 
  How Long Should My Resume Be?
by Barbara Safani - Oct, 2011
This may just be the No. 1 question I am asked regarding resumes. People seem to think that the length of a resume plays a key factor in whether or not the resume gets read. But the reality is that resumes rarely get read, no matter how short or long they are. At least not in their entirety. The length of your resume is not what’s most important. What’s most important is the quality of the content. Most hiring managers s...
 
  How to Fix Four Common Resume Mistakes
by Barbara Safani - Oct, 2011
I review a lot of resumes. And most of them have at least one of four major problems related to content, style, and form. Does your resume fall into one or more of these categories? If so, it may be time to perform a checkup on your resume to improve the overall health of your job-search campaign. The job description. These resumes list job responsibilities galore and often look like the writer literally cut and pasted thei...
 
  How to Not to Fumble the Interview
by Norine Dagliano - Oct, 2011
Sometimes job seekers do the strangest things. Take the interview, for example. As with football, sometimes things can go badly in a split second and put you out of the game. Some of the common reasons interviewers reject candidates are things that are totally within the job seeker’s control. Naturally, I can reference a dating experience to illustrate many of these: Showed up late: Getting lost or not planning enough t...
 
  In What Ways Have You Improved This Year?
by Andy Robinson - Oct, 2011
In the day-to-day, week-to-week conduct of our work, business life and personal life, we do the things we need to do to accomplish our job and get things done. We exercise our talents to get these things done; we utilize our key skills to do those things as well as we can. Six months go by, nine months go by, lots of work is done, lots of things get done. but ..... have WE gotten better? .... or are we simply going through t...
 
  Is Your Name Hurting Your Chances of Landing a Job?
by Barbara Safani - Oct, 2011
My son has a name that is very common in some parts of the world but not very common in the United States. When you hear a person’s name, do certain thoughts and associations come to mind? I started thinking about how birth names might affect a job seeker’s candidacy and wondering if they can actually play a role in the hiring process or lead to discrimination. Here are three situations where I think in some cases, a job seeke...
 
  Leaders: Embrace Being Wrong
by Andy Robinson - Oct, 2011
True leadership sometimes means owning up to the idea of admitting you’re wrong. Consider this .... If you've done a great job of surrounding yourself with incredible team members, it's important to understand that they MAY have better ways of doings things or breakthrough ideas to consider. Hopefully, they WILL have better ideas and unique and (possibly) more powerful ways of handling problems and formulating winning sol...

  Résumé Formats: What is Acceptable “Attire”?
by Norine Dagliano - Oct, 2011
Ensuring that your résumé format works in every situation is a bit tricky. Do you create it using MS Word or is an alternate word-processing program acceptable? Is it okay to include tables, graphs, shaded text boxes, and/or borders? How about color and graphics? Yes, I do have a dating analogy to answer those questions! Suppose you accept a date with an outdoorsman who wants to take you hiking? Obviously the proper atti...
