Negotiating an Executive Level Salary
by Lisa Rangel - Apr, 2014
You got your foot in the door of that executive level position you were eyeing, you nailed the interview, and you’ve been told that you’re at the top of the list of qualifying candidates. Congrats! Then, the interviewer asks that dreaded question, “What kind of compensation are you looking for?” Most job hunters tend to freeze up here, but for execs it can be particularly frightening. Big positions tend to equal big mo...
Job Interview Jitters? What You Can Do To Soothe Them
by Michelle Dumas - Apr, 2014
Work can be stressful. Being out of work can be very stressful. And looking for work is stressful as well. There are few things (a visit to the dentist, for example) more sweaty palm inducing than sitting through a job interview. Whether your angst is attributable to the importance of getting the job or because you’re uncomfortable talking about yourself, it’s normal to feel nervous about a job interview. So, what can...
Personal Brand Audit
by Stacey Lane - Apr, 2014
As a career coach, I get a ringside seat to great brands and so-so brands. But so do you - take your experience as a consumer and think about your favorite brands. What's their emotional appeal? Are they quirky? Are they innovative? Are they reliable? The brands that come to my mind: Southwest Airlines is Quirky, Apple is innovative and Maytag is reliable. Now think about your current or past co-workers. Who...
Two Ways to Do Your Resume: DIY & HAE
by Georgia Adamson - Apr, 2014
Boiled down to its simplest level, you have two ways to create or revamp your resume: Do It Yourself (DIY) or Hire An Expert (HAE). Since my profession is resume writing, you might guess I’m not going to tell you you should always do your own resume, but I will say that sometimes “it depends.” Having made my disclosure about possibly not being 100% impartial, I’ll still do my best to give an unbiased view of the two ways y...

Career Resiliency: What Does It Take?
by Mindy Thomas - Apr, 2014
No doubt there are many tough career stories in the naked city. I interviewed a close family friend yesterday about what it took for him to stay in the game. I have to tell you that I was completely moved by his brutal honesty in discussing having been fired four times over the course of his career. Mind you, I am not talking about downsizing or the company going offshore. I am speaking about being let go for politically...

Make LinkedIn References Count
by Louise Garver - Apr, 2014
Sometime during the job search process, every executive is asked for references from a potential employer. Before 2004ish employers asked for references from the executive at the end of the interview and before extending an employment offer. Fast-forward 10 years—today references may be checked before an interview. LinkedIn Reference feature makes this easy for a recruiter or hiring manager to see what people are saying about...
Toxic Work Environments
by Georgia Adamson - Apr, 2014
This isn’t the first time I’ve blogged about toxic work situations–including toxic bosses. However, it was prompted by a recent comment from a new client that was fairly disturbing. He indicated that even though he’d had a successful record over the past three years, he was very concerned about the situation in his company. Many people had quit, including his last two bosses, and a number of others had been fired. He...
