Sites like LinkedIn and Twitter allow you to make a professional statement and provide additional information to complement your resume.

  Looking For Work? Have You Considered Part-Time?
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Oct, 2010
I wish I could quote some studies showing how quickly the job market is improving, but unfortunately, things are still tough out there. Many of the unemployed have held full-time, high-paying jobs their entire careers and are struggling to land their next position. If you find yourself in this spot, limiting your job search to only full-time openings may be severely limiting your opportunities. The fact is, many compani...
 
  Should you be worried about age discrimination?
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Oct, 2010
Almost every client I work with who’s above the age of 40 asks the same question at some point: Do I need to make myself look younger on my resume? The fear that they are being skipped over for younger candidates is clearly a widespread concern among today’s job seekers. While I certainly encourage those with 30 or more years of work experience to only include what’s most relevant on their resumes, this article in the Wal...
 
  What NOT to Do in an Interview
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Oct, 2010
Last week I had lunch with a colleague who had recently hired someone for a part-time position for her office. My colleague was interested to observe the wide variety of people who applied for a low-paying, part-time position. She was even more intrigued by one candidate’s behavior during the interview. Apparently this candidate had called on her way to the interview to say she was en route. Based on her supposed whereab...
 
  You Landed the Interview – Now What You Need to Know to Land the Offer
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Oct, 2010
I recently met a recruiter for a Fortune 50 company who interviews at least 10 candidates every day for her employer. As we all know, hiring managers are receiving anywhere from dozens to hundreds of applications for most open positions these days. Given that atmosphere, this recruiter offered the following piece of advice: If you get an interview with a company, your resume has already convinced them that you could do the j...
 
  The Job Seeker’s Death Knell—Believing Your Own Excuses
by Dawn Lennon - Oct, 2010
Beating the pavement does more than wear out your soles. It can wear out your self-confidence. Rejection is strength sapping. When the reward for trying hard and staying the course keeps netting a big fat zero, we become frustrated beyond belief, plagued by that nagging question, “Why?” Hiring decisions are the great unknown. When we walk out of a job interview, we usually have a sense of “how it went.” If we think i...
 
  What Your Job Search Says About You. Sometimes It Isn’t Pretty!
by Dawn Lennon - Oct, 2010
I hear a lot of excuses, justifications, and whining from people looking for a job. It’s always the same things: -“I hate networking.” -“I followed up on a bunch of leads and nothing!” -“I’ve got my resume out there but don’t hear anything.” -“I don’t know what to put on LinkedIn or how to use it.” Come on now! Face reality. Jobs rarely find you. They don’t call it a “search” or “hunting” for nothing. The pr...
 
  Why your next job might come via LinkedIn
by Laura Smith-Proulx - Oct, 2010
As you might expect, I speak with many senior executives and other job hunters on a regular basis. As I review their job search techniques and situation, the common refrain I hear is that they’ve set up a LinkedIn Profile, but then failed to do anything else with it. These executives are often just peripherally aware that using LinkedIn can help their job search, but they're not sure what steps to take that will help them...
 
  Resume Rescue: Tame My Resume From Long and Shaggy to Short and Chic
by Barbara Safani - Oct, 2010
When it comes to resumes, longer is rarely better. In today's fast-paced world, hiring managers generally spend less than 15 seconds looking at a resume. They want to be able to see your key differentiators quickly, and they will rarely look past page two to find the information they need. So how do you keep your resume concise without sacrificing clarity or quality? Here are some common resume problems that can result in a do...
 
  Human resources consultant lists 10 tips for writing a terrific resume
by Judith Lindenberger - Oct, 2010
If you are looking for a job, writing a resume is one of the first steps you need to take. The goal of a resume is to get you in the door with prospective employers. And, you have about 30 seconds to grab the reader's attention. As the former Manager of Staffing for a Fortune 500 company, certified career counselor, and board member of several nonprofit organizations, I have reviewed thousands of resumes. Based upon my exper...
