Here are a few tips: • Meet with your boss weekly to ensure she always knows the status of your projects. Show enthusias...
Sometimes A Job Badly Done Is The Job Description's Fault
by Gary Cohen - Dec, 2009
Don't blame the poor employee. Usually when employees fail to fulfill the expectations their job descriptions raise, their superiors work with them to improve their performance. If that fails, they are sent packing. Such firings--and all the hurt feelings, wasted time and tried patience that accompany them--aren't always avoidable, but leaders shouldn't overlook the part the job description can play. Sometimes it's the job ...
Could That Sound Really Be Opportunity? During The Holidays?
by Dawn Bugni - Dec, 2009
After receiving the topic for this month’s Career Collective post, I bet I’ve read more than 50 articles addressing different aspects of staying motivated during the holiday season in the past few weeks. And that’s a mere drop in the bucket compared to what’s out there. Today, a Google search using “Job search during the holidays” brings back 97,500 (and counting) results. In fact, digging through my own archives, I found a po...

Are You Doing All You Can?
by Harry Urschel - Dec, 2009
Many people are struggling through a tough job search these days and it’s not likely to get dramatically easier very soon. So as the days, weeks, and months drag on without an offer in hand, I’ve got a tough question to ask you...be honest with yourself... Are you doing all you can? I teach an 8-week course in job transition skills. Each week everyone gives updates on what they did that week. However, as much as each of ...
It’s Been A While!
by Harry Urschel - Dec, 2009
I recently received an email from someone who’s been reading my blog and is looking for advice on his situation. He’s currently been out of work for nearly 3 years. Certainly his predicament isn’t unique, so I thought it would be helpful to discuss it here. His email stated (edited for brevity): "I had a question about something I didn't see addressed on your blog… A (Current) Employment Gap. I've managed to have a pr...
The Shortest Distance Between YOU and $$$$? Network Calling!
by Bernadette Boas - Dec, 2009
Did you notice I did not say Cold Calling? I said Network Calling...more on that in a minute. Like so many people, when I went out on my own, I knew that my marketing plan would include various techniques; definitely networking, one-one close contact lead generation, referrals, partner programs, direct mail (maybe), third party telemarketing (maybe). But one technique I was not prepared to do, nor did not want to do was the...

by Louise Fletcher - Dec, 2009
Earlier this year, Susan Boyle became famous for being able to sing well even though she was neither young nor pretty (apparently we find this surprising!). Simon Cowell rolled his eyes when she first walked on stage to sing on his TV talent show The X-Factor, although he soon warmed to her when she began to sing. A few months later, he was in the US filming the US version of his talent show, American Idol. As the season ad...
Why Recruiters Are Rejecting Your Resume
by Laura Smith-Proulx - Dec, 2009
Wondering why recruiters don’t call you back, and how you’re ever going to get hired in this recession? As it turns out, hiring authorities continually see problems with the resumes that come their way, with what one noted was “more pet peeves on this issue than Elin Woods’ attorney on the new pre-nuptial agreement.” However, most recruiters are more than happy to share their advice for getting your resume into the “yes”...
