Unemployment, particularly long-term unemployment, can have a serious impact on multiple aspects of your life.  In my newest piece for careersingovernment.com, I talk about some of the challenges and offer some suggestions aimed at helping job seekers regain some control over what can be a difficult process.
According to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 3.5 million people fall into the category of the long-term unemployed—defined as those individuals who have not had a job for 27 or more weeks.  To put this into greater perspective, the long-term unemployed make up a little more than 35% of the total unemployed.  The ...

I was fortunate to have the opportunity to record a podcast on changing your job search perspective with Tim Muma of localjobnetwork.com.  It's now up and running, and available for download on iTunes (in case you'd like to listen to me while you're on the treadmill!).  As an aside, I have never been particularly fond of the sound of my own voice...

A great post with tips for preparing your resume for the ATS.
You can never be sure if your resume will make it past the robots---also known as the applicant tracking system (ATS)---that many organizations use to screen applicants. It's easy to appeal to a ...

Warren White - Dual-certified Human Resources professional, career strategist, consultant, & writer
Introduction

I'm an experienced Human Resources and Career Transition professional with interests in HR, talent acquisition, career transition and job search, and social media.  I currently work as an HR Specialist with Lifetouch National School Studios, and I am also the Principal and Founder of Humanus Consulting.  

I write a blog, Humanus, featuring my take on HR, job search, and social media--and particularly what happens when all three intersect.  I am also the Baltimore Job Search Examiner for Examiner.com, where I write about what's happening in the local job market, as well as offering more broadly applicable job search advice.  I am happy to announce my affiliation with CAREEREALISM, where I have joined their Career Expert Panel.  

I currently serve in a volunteer role as the Social Media Team Lead for the Human Resource Association of the National Capital Area (DC's SHRM chapter).  I am also a volunteer with the Taproot Foundation, where I've had the chance to donate 200 hours of pro bono HR consulting to some great DC-area nonprofits.
