by Laura Smith-Proulx - Jan, 2010
Much has been written about the impact of social media in the careers industry, with plenty of accolades for the role of Twitter and LinkedIn in the job hunt. Of course, there’s still many holdouts in the job-seeking community. But what about career professionals themselves? Should your resume writer or career coach know how to use social media—and what are the implications of working with a service provider who is lacki...
Do You Foster Helplessness or a
by David Lee - Jan, 2010
In these rather challenging times, you need ALL of your employees thinking and acting like winners, not throwing up their hands in defeat or metaphorically curling up in the fetal position. How you communicate with them plays a huge role in which kind of workforce you get. Just recently, I heard two examples that illustrated opposite approaches to communication by senior management. One approach virtually guaranteeing wh...

If you’re not familiar with the terms...a "Functional" resume lays out the functional experience you’ve had related to the field you are pursuing.

Looking For a New Job? Try Your Current Employer
by Tai Goodwin - Jan, 2010
When most people think of a getting a new job, the first thought is to look outside of their current employer. If you are in a small company with lots of “lifers” where many of the roles are set, an external move may be your only option. But if you work for a mid to large-sized company that actively recruits to fill positions, the first place to start may be your internal job board. There are several things that could be pr...
A Case Against Multiple LinkedIn Profiles
by Joshua Waldman - Jan, 2010
In the last few days, I’ve been asked 3 times this same question: How can I use social media to promote multiple businesses/interests and also have a profile that is effective for job seeking? Someone said to me recently, “There are 14 million unemployed in America. That’s a lot of entrepreneurs!” There are people who have found their passion, or at least a business interest that they wouldn’t have had the freedom to ...
Building Trust Means First Setting Clear Expectations
by Dee McCrorey - Jan, 2010
"I don't feel that my team members have my back," one of my coaching clients, "Merrall", said leaning forward in her chair during our Skype call. Watching her posture and expression on the video screen, I could see her frustration with the current situation. "What does having your back look like?" I asked. "It means giving me a heads up about situations that could bite me in the backside when I least expect it." Le...
Skirting Around Risk Taking - Why Giving Voice to the Word Matters
by Dee McCrorey - Jan, 2010
I read the Harvard Business Review blog article "How Do Innovators Think?" with its focus on "inquisitiveness". A great attribute to have, indeed, and one that speaks to someone's curious nature. But as the authors discovered, inquisitiveness on its own doesn't always translate into action. And without action, curiosity is just another nine-letter word that never moves anyone to innovate. The six-year study surveying 3,000 ...

Layoffs Inflict Collateral Damage On Friends and Family
by Ramon Greenwood - Jan, 2010
The news media rarely skip a day in reporting the grim economic news and calculating the number of jobs lost in the United States since the recession started in December, 2007.

Survivors of the axe have to deal with a variety of emotions: mourning over those who have been ...
Workplace Communication Trends for 2010
by Suzanne Bates - Jan, 2010
I’ve been scanning the internet for 2010 workplace predictions and it’s got me thinking about how all these trends are going to change the way we communicate. It’s my birthday - and I remember when you needed a carbon copier between two sheets of paper in a typewriter to make two copies of my television scripts.
