Get Noticed
Many people are concerned about being no more than a faceless
number, represented only by their digital resume as they seek to find a job.
Their frustration is justified because so many others are doing the same thing
at a time when the current job market i...

The Confidence Deficit
I have been a headhunter and consultant for a long time, working
with and on behalf of company hiring managers on one side of the table and job
seekers on the other. I have dealt with people of all professional levels,
functions and roles, too many to count...

Resume Usefulness
The interview is an interactive
event. You will need to demonstrate why you are worthy of consideration and to
the extent that you will be selected over other applicants. But it is not only
about you and your qualifications. The process will also help you t...

After the Interview
After you attend an interview, what do you do; what would
you do? I am relentlessly suggesting that when seeking a job, your activity
during the interview process requires that, in order to increase your odds for
success, you must effectively multi-task bec...

Reference Checked Before the Interview
If you think you are reference checked only near the end of
the interview process, you are mistaken - that’s how it was, but no longer. Sure,
reference checks as we’ve known them still exist, usually at the end of the
hiring process, when an HR rep or hirin...

A Failure to Communicate
During the conduct of the interview,
an applicant is supposed to elaborate upon the information on their resume in
order to give the interviewer a good and thorough understanding of their
abilities, and how that can relate to the role for which they have ap...

The Chicken or the Egg
When it comes to helping oneself find job opportunities,
most of us have been conditioned to believe the internet is the answer for
everything. We’re led to believe that without online efforts, we have no hope
of finding a good job when, in fact, this is a ...

Earn the Opportunity to Say No
Question: When you go to the
first interview for any job, what is your goal; what should be your goal? Answer: To be invited back for
the next step in the process for further consideration.   That is your mission, do well enough
to be invited back, one step...

Exit with Class
When you resign form a job, sometimes long suppressed animosities may
bubble to the surface because you’re about to leave your old job for a new one.
As a result, some people like to get a little revenge, or at least want to
thumb their noses on their way o...

Getting an Invitation
In January I posted a blog entry suggesting people do more real activity than limit themselves only
to online efforts, which in reality amounts to not much effort. As a matter of
common sense, I always suggest you must do more if you want better results by ...

Networking Effectively
Networking for professional
purposes has been diluted in its meaning, having become so vague it’s worthy of
clarifying the different types of networking as related to your job search
efforts. It is wise to identify what kind of networking activity will be a...

Why You Should Heed My Advice
I hear people complain and say, “…you don’t know how tough
it is.” Or, “when was the last time you looked for a job”, blah, blah…   well, those folks couldn’t be more mistaken.
For those who want to do more than to complain; if you are serious and you mean
