  Speak Out About The Dismal Job Market
by Ramon Greenwood - Nov, 2010
These are troubling times in the job market. No doubt about that. Nearly 15 million Americans are looking for work. The unemployment rate is holding steady at 9.6%. No one has a firm idea as to when this situation will improve. The reasons cited for this horrendous condition include lack of consumer spending (i.e. confidence), plus uncertainty about what the government will do about taxes and regulation, as well as changes...
 
  Five Things A Cover Letter Can Show That A Resume Can’t
by Cathy Eng - Nov, 2010
These days, the professional cover letter has taken a backseat to its much more popular cousin, the resume. Although it is often seen as stuffy, antiquated, and even frivolous, the cover letter actually has the power to establish the all-important first impression. And what you put in that letter could be the catalyst that sets you apart and gets you an interview. Though many people underestimate the importance of a cove...
 
  Renovate Your Informational Interview Strategy
by Alexia Vernon - Nov, 2010
First, in an informational interview you have an opportunity to learn about a specific company. A lot of jobseekers, particularly young professionals, use informational interviews for this reason. Most of the time we actually know quite a bit about the particular company, and that’s why we’re in the room. We aspire to work there. If this is the case, make sure you ask questions you don’t already know the answer to. Use the kno...
 
  Switching Careers? How To Advertise Your Transferrable Skills
by Cathy Eng - Nov, 2010
While doing what you love is important, bringing home a paycheck often forces people to make a decision between pursuing their dreams and putting food on the table. Plus, the changes in the economy are driving many workers to make a choice right now to change careers paths. But that’s not necessarily a bad thing, nor is it impossible to find an equivalent job in a different industry. You just need to rewrite your resume to adv...
 
  Tuesdays Are Terrific! The Best Day And Time To Contact HR
by Cathy Eng - Nov, 2010
Many job seekers focus solely on the “how” of contacting potential employers, but the “when” can be crucial to getting noticed as well. Contacting them when they are more likely to be alert and responsive (and not tired, hungry, or stressed) is all about timing. That includes planning the optimal time and day to contact HR (to either initiate contact, follow up after sending a resume, or follow up post-interview). Accord...
 
  10% Unemployment – Now What?
by Joe Turner - Nov, 2010
Well, it finally arrived. On Friday the Labor Department reported that the official unemployment rate for October rose to 10.2%, from 9.8% in September. We knew this was coming and that it was just a matter of time. Hundreds of thousands of people are unemployed and job opportunities just arenft available. OK, now that wefve broken that barrier, where do we go from here? What do we do now? One of the bigger problems...
 
  4 Resolutions to Rock Your Job Search in 2010
by Joe Turner - Nov, 2010
OK, did you survive the past year? We all know 2009 was a devastating year economically for the US. The good news is that 2010 may see recovery in some sectors. The bad news is that the high unemployment rate will continue to be with us for quite some time. While there may continue to be fewer job openings, companies still do business and they still need talented employees to help them better compete during the coming ye...
 
  Can Gen-X Career Discontent Work for YOU as a Job Seeker?
by Joe Turner - Nov, 2010
I recently interviewed Career Coach Randy Block about the generation gap between Baby Boomers and Gen-X hiring managers. Turns out the generation gap works in both directions per a recent AP article from Martha Irvine. She noted that the Gen-Xers are feeling squeezed between the Boomers who won’t go away and the up and coming Gen-Yers. According to Robin Erickson, manager at Deloitte Consulting, once this recession eases o...
 
  Have You Considered Working a Temp Job?
by Joe Turner - Nov, 2010
If you’ve thought before about working a temp job, here’s some further ammo for considering it. Today the US unemployment rate rose to 9.8%, the highest this country has experienced since June 1983. That’s 15.1 million Americans now out of work. According to the US Labor Department, another 263,000 jobs were lost last month, higher than expected. Additionally, if those who were already laid off and have had to settle fo...
 
  Being “Assertive” in Job Interviews
by Harry Urschel - Nov, 2010
I received a note from someone that said: “I was told I was not assertive enough in an interview I just had. How do you do that?” Good question, and one that I think affects a number of job seekers. How do you express assertiveness without being over-bearing or offensive? And what does being “assertive” really mean? One nice result of this encounter, is that the employer gave an honest critique that most people are n...
