Honesty and the Job Interview
by Wendy Enelow - Mar, 2011
Some years ago, I was fired from a job. It was not for cause, but it certainly dealt a blow to my ego, confidence, and desire to look for another job. I was devastated. Once I began interviewing, I was inevitably asked “Why did you leave your last job?” Not yet in career management, I was at a loss, and didn’t handle my reply very well at all. I didn’t land another position until I finally mustered my courage, returned to...

What If You Continue to Ignore your “What If” Questions?
by Christine Hassler - Feb, 2011
"Life is an unanswered question, but let's still believe in the dignity and importance of the question." -Tennessee Williams What if? This question evokes a feeling of wonderful possibility or dreadful panic. For many, it’s the latter. What if questions usually pop-up when we are navigating our way through unknown territory. When worrying about a situation or facing anxiety about something in the future, the incessant what if...
Give Thanks, Get Hired
by Kevin Donlin - Feb, 2011
One day in September 1996, I was talking to Steve, my manager. We had just interviewed a woman for a job. Discussing how we had applied to our company, I mentioned that I had mailed a thank-you note to the manager who hired me. “So did I,” replied Steve. Steve and I were both hired. Coincidence? The next day, we each received a thank-you note in the mail from Leitha, the woman we interviewed. We hired Leitha....
Why you need your own website - and how to get one!
by Miriam Salpeter - Feb, 2011
Do you believe you need an online presence to help you land a job — or to help you manage your career? I spent 45 minutes last week trying to convince a career-changing friend she needed HerName.com. She is finishing an advanced degree and will be looking for opportunities in a teaching specialty. She can’t understand why it is important to have an online presence, and she made some good points: - I’m going to get a job b...

by Lindsey Pollak - Feb, 2011
I was struck by a recent front page story in The New York Times that discussed the steady rise in Chinese students applying to U.S. colleges and universities. While the article focused on how schools like Grinnell College in Iowa actively recruit in China and how an international students can “have an edge if he or she can pay full tuition,” my mind immediately fast-forwarded four years: Will the same universities that woo...
6 Steps for Building Executive Presence
by Dr. Maynard Brusman - Feb, 2011
Recently, I’ve received a dramatic increase in requests from companies and law firms seeking help for leaders to improve their “executive presence”. When I inquire into what they mean by executive presence I very often get quite different responses. I seek clarification by asking the HR Director or potential executive coaching client to describe the leader’s current behavior and what cultivating more executive presence would...

Is your client a natural manager?
by Wendy Enelow - Feb, 2011
Three groups of talents are often associated with people in supervisory positions: the initiators or developers – the people who come up with the vision and get the ball rolling; the planners and analyzers – the people who take that vision and make it a reality by planning on how to put the right elements in place, or improve upon what is already there; and the front-line managers or operations supervisors- the people who main...
