  6 Common Sense Job Search Tips
by Lindsey Pollak - Sep, 2010
Last week’s post, “5 Simple But Brilliant Job Interview Strategies,” generated a lot of feedback, particularly from recruiters who told me how often job seekers make seemingly obvious mistakes such as spelling a recruiter’s name incorrectly. This reminded me of the fact that, as Voltaire famously said, “Common sense is not so common.” So today I wanted to share some additional seemingly simple career tips that many job seek...
 
  It’s 2010…Do You Know Where Your Digital Footprint Is?
by Barbara Safani - Sep, 2010
I’m headed out to Dallas to present a hands-on workshop on social media strategies for job seekers to my colleagues at this year’s National Resume Writers’ Association Conference. Resumes are an important marketing tool, but I believe that a resume is naked without a corresponding social media strategy. Over 90% of recruiters perform Internet searches on candidates before making a hiring decision, and more than half of empl...
 
  How to Protect Your Career if a Tornado Hits
by Barbara Safani - Sep, 2010
Last week a tornado ripped through parts of Queens, New York. New Yorkers aren’t exactly used to tornadoes and the event really took us by surprise. The storm passed through the neighborhood where I grew up and I still have many friends and family there. Several of them posted pictures of the storm’s aftermath on Facebook to capture the devastation. One friend shared a picture of a weeping willow tree that had been broken...
 
  5 Simple But Brilliant Job Interview Strategies
by Lindsey Pollak - Sep, 2010
In a recent blog post I outlined some of the biggest job seeker mistakes to avoid, based on my own experience hiring a paid intern. Today, I’ll share some simple but impactful tactics you should employ to help you land the job you want. 1. Spell the recruiter or hiring manager’s name right. Of the emails I received responding to the position I posted, about half (!) spelled my name wrong. To me, that was an instant sign th...

  Be Productive Over the Summer Slowdown
by Alexandra Levit - Sep, 2010
Many of you reading today are headed into work, and it may well be slow. In the business world, it’s not uncommon to spend various days in July and August sitting at your desk and twiddling your thumbs because your colleagues and clients aren’t around to do business with. I’m willing to bet that web surfing, Facebook checking, and online shopping are at an annual high. Here are a couple of tips to get through the summer mon...
 
  College: Time To Grow Up
by Bob Roth - Sep, 2010
When students enter college, they will begin to face a long list of challenges. Whether they are ready or not, every student will be expected to have the maturity to act responsibly, do their best work and make good choices. This is a time when students begin to operate on their own and take full responsibility for their decisions, words, behavior and results. Students who finance their own way through college, usually...
 
  Friends? Don't Be Afraid to Ask for Their Business!
by Andy Robinson - Sep, 2010
We often develop social relationships with individuals who COULD be clients -- they definitely meet the definition of our ideal client profile. Why not simply ask for their business? Many of us don't, hoping that THEY will make the first move. Really? Just ASK! "I understand you may already have a (Insert your specialty) Advisor, but if anything ever comes up where you might want to consider a new or additional advisor...
 
  It All Begins in Your Head-Part 1
by Judi Perkins - Sep, 2010
Frank Lloyd Wright, world-famous architect, said, “The thing always happens that you really believe in; and the belief in a thing makes it.” In other words, we create our own reality by what we think. For a huge number of people, this is a tough concept to accept, because it means acknowledging responsibility for their circumstances. Too many people would rather play the victim, preferring to believe they have no contro...
 
  It All Begins in Your Head-Part 2
by Judi Perkins - Sep, 2010
Last entry I showed you how and why your thoughts, verbalizations, and intents create what you experience. To quote Mark Twain: “If you think you can, you can. If you think you can’t, you’re right.” So if you don’t like what’s happening with your job search, look to how you’re thinking and what you’re saying about the process, because your ability to find the perfect job is determined by your attitude and beliefs....
