Job Search Spring Cleaning
by Barbara Safani - Mar, 2010
Happy Spring! It’s time to spring into action and add some news strategies to your job search campaign. Here are a few things to try. 1. Go around the gatekeeper. If you find an open position through a job board or company website, don’t only submit your resume to human resources—they’re often gatekeepers who don’t have much control over who ends up getting hired. Instead, go around the gatekeeper and do some Internet resea...

Getting Past the Fear – How to Succeed in a 21st Century Job Search
by Kris Plantrich - Mar, 2010
Most of my clients are experienced professionals in their 40’s or 50’s and come to me in the throngs of a failed job search. Usually their career has progressed easily through internal promotions or word of mouth referrals. Now faced with a struggling economy and a new job search arena, they feel unsure and even fearful of the challenge before them. Suddenly they are 6 years old again and afraid to step off their bed for fe...
Job Hunting? Three ways Your Competition Is Killing Your Chances
by Laura Smith-Proulx - Mar, 2010
Recently, I talked with a jobseeker who had been laid off from a company in shutdown mode. A long-term employee, she had been promoted many times, with her recent job involving distributor relations. She was most interested in working for a university near her home. When I asked her what type of job she would pursue, she told me that she’d be applying to their posted career counseling position, since she did have HR experie...
Top Traits of an Entrepreneur - Learn from Successes AND Failures - 3 Helpful Tips
by Bernadette Boas - Mar, 2010
One key trait of an entrepreneur that I continually work to sharpen my skill at is learning from the successes, mistakes and failures that I have had in my business, and life (as so often personal events contribute to both). This week for example - Murphy, as in Murphy’s Law of ‘if anything will go wrong it will when you have a critical deadline or goal you are working on”...well I certainly had him chasing me.

Three Ways to Spring Clean Your Career
by Lindsey Pollak - Mar, 2010
I’m having trouble writing this blog post, because all I want to do is go outside and enjoy the warm spring air. Alas, I am inside at my computer, occasionally staring out my window at the bright blue sky. And, after I finish writing, there is more inside work to be done today. I’ve just received a delivery of three brown boxes filled with file folders, storage bins, crates and plastic hangers. I have a stack of garbage ba...
Managers Who Don’t Manage - Taking Issue
by Dawn Lennon - Mar, 2010
Fear of employees. Way too many managers have a case of it. From what I can see, it’s highly contagious. That’s the issue. Businesses hire managers to make sure the right work gets done in the right way. Managers don’t actually do the work (usually), their employees do. So, the manager’s job is to set direction and clear the way. Problem: Too many managers don’t manage. Guess they’re just too scared. It’s epidemic. T...
The WAR For Talent Is...OVER?
by Todd Rhoad - Mar, 2010
Many high achievers still fail to recognize the need for skills beyond their own technical ability. A hard charging attitude coupled with a graduate degree isn’t sufficient. While they see themselves as real talent, they fail to see that the needs of industry are continually evolving. The battle for technical skill alone is over. We’ve stepped off that field and have engaged a foe of the social nature. You’ve just spent tha...
No One Told Me...
by Dawn Bugni - Mar, 2010
No one told me... That was the response I heard when I asked a client about the monetary impact of changes she’d suggested and implemented. I pressed further. “Can you remember anything about how things changed after you introduced your idea?” Her response...a nervous giggle, then **crickets**. I’m not picking on her. It’s not the first time I’ve gotten that response. Pragmatically, we know no job comes with guarantees. ...
