Good Grades Are Not Enough
by Bob Roth - Nov, 2013
College students should be aware that employers look for much more than just good grades. Employers believe that well-rounded students who have had a broad range of on-campus and off-campus work and learning experiences tend to perform at a higher level than students whose experiences and performance were limited to classroom.

by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Nov, 2013
Over the past few weeks I’ve reviewed hundreds of resumes—and to my dismay, they’ve all looked and sounded the same. I’m not sure who thought it was a good idea to give job seekers the advice that replicating an unoriginal career summary or objective statement on their resume was a sound job searching practice. But whoever did that should be blacklisted from providing career advice to job seekers. I can assure you (and I’m...
Why Keeping Your Options Open May Harm Your Job Search
by Jacqui Barrett-Poindexter - Nov, 2013
It is human nature in job search – as in dating – to want to keep your options open. Many job seekers, whether early-career and fairly inexperienced or 15+ years in and heralding a plethora of different functional strengths, feel they will limit their opportunities by narrowing their job search target. In fact, just the opposite will happen. Broad Resume Nets Don’t Work. By casting a broad net, job seekers drown out t...

Building and maintaining a successful executive network should be a top priority whether you are involved in a current job search or not. Don’t store away contacts that you meet and reach out only when you are in the midst of job search. You need to create an action plan to cultivate those contact relationships.

Networking for the Nervous
by David Couper - Nov, 2013
If you don’t like going outside and meeting people then don’t! The Internet is a powerful way of spreading a form of “electronic word of mouth.” Blogs, newsletters and well-visited web sites can carry your marketing messages to large worldwide audiences. These messages can lead to job opportunities, freelance contracts and customers. You may know that a company is hiring and you simply want to know more about that company....

3 Secrets of Non-Verbal Communication
by Lindsey Pollak - Oct, 2013
It’s been said a zillion times, but it’s true: It’s not just what you say; it’s how you say it. The tone with which you deliver your words, the way you stand and the all-important eye contact connection express information that words cannot.
