The Day I Got Laid Off

Guest post by Nathan Tanner, member of LinkedIn's Acquisition team and author of Not Your Parents' Workplace.

I was sitting at my desk when the head of our team tapped me on the shoulder and asked me to come by his office. At that moment I knew that I was toast. I was told to collect my things, and after a few quick goodbyes, I was forced to leave the building. It was over that fast. The job that I’d worked so hard to obtain was over.

Is Your Resume Ready for Prime Time? It only takes a few minutes to find out. http://t.co/Bz7DoDyGc5 #resumes  
Is your current resume ready for prime time? This question has nothing to do with the peak viewing time on television when advertising rates are at their highest. It refers to the less than 30 seconds that it takes a recruiter or hiring manager to make a decision about your resume.Consider this: The average length of a television ad is 60 seconds. This is twice the time it takes the most discerning, eagle-eyed recruiter to scan a resume and decid...

The comfort zone is too comfortable. Many of us are too fearful about trying something different, so we lock ourselves in this comfort zone circle and settle for less. Is it time to get out of this too familiar space and give yourself the freedom to s-t-r-e-t-c-h?

Today is the International Day of UN Peacekeepers! It's a day to celebrate the UN Peacekeepers working to help countries torn by conflict create the conditions for lasting peace. Recently, we partnered with the Centre for United Nations Peacekeeping to launch a project that trains female military officers to prevent and address sexual and gender-based violence in armed conflict. The 2-week course builds on previous training and aims to support women peacekeepers, whose numbers are small but whose participation in the security sector is essential for the success of +UN Peacekeeping missions.

In two recent articles – one from Elevate Talent Network, and the other from The Huffington Post – it is being inferred that the cover letter is dying, or has died.
