Executive Job Hunting? You'll Need more Than a Resume
by Laura Smith-Proulx - Jun, 2011
If you’re an executive planning your next career move, it might intrigue you to learn that you’ll be judged by more than just your resume during your job search. In other words, a full resume is not necessarily the best fit for each interviewer or contact. Surprised? You’ll find that recruiters, company owners, Boards of Directors, and other hiring decision-makers often look at your experience through a series of interv...

Here are some other interesting stats from the survey: • Thirty-two percent of US workers are currently considering leaving their organization, up from 23% in 2005. • Twenty-one percent are not looking to leave but view their employers unfavorably and have low scores on key measures of engag...
Are You A Weiner, A Whiner,
by Eva Jenkins - Jun, 2011
With more than 14 million Americans currently looking for work, it is definitely a buyer’s market out there. Companies understandably want to hire the best candidates they can find. With so many people to choose among, businesses are looking beyond black-and-white credentials such as education and experience to identify prospective employees who bring something more to the table, such as basic common sense. In this regar...

When a federal contractor is formally selected for a compliance review, the OFCCP notifies the contractor by sending what is referred to as a Scheduling Letter directly to the facility that will be evaluated.

Women in the Trades
by Joan Runnheim Olson - Jun, 2011
Over a decade ago, I began my journey helping females and males consider non-traditional careers. I worked for a St. Paul, MN-based non-profit helping women enter and succeed in blue collar jobs in the trades. My role was to assess women’s readiness to enter the six-week pre-apprenticeship training program and then help them find jobs once they finished. I conducted lengthy interviews to determine their level of interest...

Now leaders must rebound and take the next steps for a sustainable future. They must refocus, inspire and innovate to lead successfully and grow their business.

Would You Marry Someone Who Was Unemployed?
by Barbara Safani - Jun, 2011
According to a recent survey conducted by YourTango and ForbesWomen, 75 percent of women surveyed said they would not marry someone without a job and 65 percent said they wouldn’t get married if they were the one who was unemployed. But 91 percent of single women said they would marry for love over money. Huh? Some of the other survey stats intrigued me as well including: • 55 percent of women would give up their careers t...
Managing your career in a bad economy
by Hallie Crawford - Jun, 2011
I was interviewed on the radio recently in Atlanta, on Q100, talking about whether the economy’s getting better and how people are feeling about it. The good news is that more of my clients are scoring job interviews. In fact, two of my clients recently have secured new jobs. I’ve also noticed that despite high unemployment rates, employee confidence is coming back. I’m hearing of clients getting called by recruiters again, in...
Why "Grunt Work" Matters
by Lindsey Pollak - Jun, 2011
I’ve become increasingly distressed over the years by the number of students and recent grads who complain to me that their jobs or internships contain too much “grunt work.” (Interestingly, these complaints have not slowed at all in the bad economy, when one might think any job, including one that requires some “gruntage,” is better than none.)

Observe Those You Admire Most
by Andy Robinson - Jun, 2011
Make it a point to observe the people you respect -- those who really seem to "walk" the leadership talk and inspire others. • What EXACTLY do they do that draws their team members to them? • What actions do they take that really seem to uplift others? • What key behaviors stand out? • What is distinctly different or unique about the way they interact with others? Observing is a great way to learn. Look fo...
