A Hard Worker - With Pre-Conditions
I am in contact on a regular
basis with many very well-qualified and dedicated people who want to pursue
good jobs and, lately, the job market is improving and some sectors are doing
rather well and experiencing growth. I have client companies with needs fo...

The Root of the Problem
Understandably, most people don’t
consider the things I write about until such time as they need a job;
ironically, it is my job. But I highly suggest you share this article with
others you know, whether they find themselves in need of this less-than-desira...

About Discrimination
I was recently asked by a reader about my thoughts
on discrimination and what one can do about it.   We do unfortunately live in a world where people make snap judgments about
others, casting aspersions and thereby exposing their own insecurities. But
discr...

Self-inflicted Damage
“Time Kills All Deals” – as the
saying goes among sales professionals. I often write about obstacles that lay
in the path of an individual’s efforts, when trying to advance their own job
search and interview progress. But on the opposite side of the subject...

We Don’t Talk Anymore
Business, the business that matters to us on a personal
level – that related to finding and interviewing for a job, is conducted by direct
communication, there is no substitute. But in order to do so, you’ve got to
identify who to speak with and then you mu...

Especially Because Others Don’t
With each passing year I find
more and more people are losing their skills to communicate to not much more
than a basic level, incapable of purposeful interaction and, above all, unwilling
to take initiative to do the things that can help them to advance th...

The Art of Asking Questions
When you are engaged in an interview process, far too many
people sit mute and do little on their own behalf. Reciprocal dialogue is part
of the process but, to do so effectively, requires the ability to effectively
communicate. It is an interactive event a...

A Super-Charged Interview Performance
I speak to a LOT of people and,
when I question them about their interview skills, they are most often very
self-assured. They tell me with a hint of condescension, “oh, Michael I know
what to do thank you very much”. Then, when it comes time to interview -...

The Uncomfortable Truth About Jobs Posted Online (Redux)
This is a re-post of one of the most
popular articles I have written. Viewed by almost 50,000 readers it truly

Convention Be Damned
There are already plenty of
obstacles built into the process of seeking a job. The interview process is

Firing for More Hiring
This short article/blog entry will elicit two distinctly different
reactions: some will wince and accuse me of being hard-hearted and, yet, others
will see the common sense logic in my perspective and nod in full agreement.   No one is entitled to a job per...

The Clock is Ticking
When you find yourself having to interview for a job, you’ll
have a limited window of time within which you need to make the most of the
event. The first interview should be about their learning more about you beyond
your resume and you should learn more ab...
