Seems I continually hear this complaint, “They aren’t hiring me because I’m overqualified.” One man wrote an e-mail to me concerned about this problem: “I have a lot of incredible extracurricular professional activities, publishing expertise, project management experience, board leadership skills, etc. I have an MBA, and am a CPA. All of this info is on my resume because it sets me apart. However, I am concerned that peopl...
 
  Looking for a Job: Here is One Technique That Works
by Robin Ryan - Jul, 2014
85% of all jobs are never advertised. 85%!! Most of these are good jobs with the better salaries that you seek. A networking technique called Informational Interviewing is a successful tool that job hunters have used to find these unadvertised jobs. Many job hunters attending my job search seminars are unfamiliar with it, but 63% of all new jobs were found through contacts last year. It's a valuable technique to learn and impl...

by Robin Ryan - Jul, 2014
A Human Resources Manager, working at a Fortune 500 company, asked for my help in writing her resume. She told me: “Thousands of resumes have passed through my hands but when it comes to writing my own I have a difficult time doing it.” She isn’t alone in her concerns. Most people find resume writing challenging. A resume is nothing more than a slick piece of advertising, but an important piece, especially in today’s job marke...

by Valerie Sokolosky - Jul, 2014
We’ve all had to endure the “dreaded” interview. Have you ever left the interview thinking, “Did I do this right? Did I say that wrong?

Have you ever considered doing something entirely different from your current job role? Do you have secondary skills that if provided the opportunity could blossom into a new career path?

by Michelle Dumas - Jul, 2014
What came first, the chicken or the egg? It seems like a silly question, no? What if, however, we were to change it up a bit to, let’s say: What comes first, the job or job experience?

by Michelle Kerrigan - Jul, 2014
Many people are quick to tell you the top things you should do during a job interview, but what is often more useful is what you shouldn’t do.
