by Bob Roth - Jan, 2014

Therefore, if you want to make the best possible impression, a customized resumé is a valuable tool. To increase the number of invitations you receive for interviews, customize your resumé for each employer. Just like you, employers appreciate people wh...

Likewise, as we create and nurture these relationships, we need to be prepared to offer the same in return. Unfortunately, making contacts and turning business cards into a dependable rolodex of steadfast colleagues is easier said tha...

by Laura Smith-Proulx - Dec, 2013
As a former hiring manager in several consulting firms, I often wondered if candidates were cognizant of the impression they made on employers.

Ironically, many of the issues I spotted were easily fixed by taking care...
How Do I Pick My Major If I don't Know What I Want To Be (When I Grow up)?
by Rob Taub - Dec, 2013
Start with the end in mind. As with writing a speech, you determine what your objective is and what it is you hope to instill in your audience and only THEN do you begin to write your speech, make sense?

Major Mistakes Executives are Making on LinkedIn
by Rosa Elizabeth Vargas - Dec, 2013
Let’s get right into it. Shall we? #1 – No picture. Profiles with no pictures are ignored [because they are boring]. Please place a picture on LinkedIn. Stop procrastinating, get a nice headshot, Photoshop it just a bit if you must, but get one pronto! Contrary to what others will say regarding attire, I am advising you go with something other than the ‘mundane’ black business suit. A warmer earthy tone will hel...

Prickly or Pleasant? What Style Gets You. Simple Gifts
by Dawn Lennon - Dec, 2013

Almost on a daily basis you can find a TV program touting the latest fashions for men and women, some programs even providing “make overs” for audience members. The problem is: new clothes, hair styles, or accessories can’t remake the way you come across to others. Looking nice isn’t the same as being nice. Your interpersonal style, the way...
