by Miriam Salpeter - May, 2013
Job seekers have a lot of networking resources at their disposal. Theoretically, it should be possible to either a) find connections that will introduce you to people to help with your job search or b) introduce yourself to those contacts via social media.

If you’re an experienced engineer with a Ph.D. and you’re having trouble landing an entry-level engineering job, it can be tough on your morale. However, you should not be surprised when employers don’t jump at the chance to hire someone who isn’t a perfect fit for the job, even if that means turning away someone with t...

by Miriam Salpeter - May, 2013
If you are extremely qualified, have terrific application materials, a targeted resume and you’re interviewing for jobs, but always coming up with a silver medal, it’s possible that you’re bumping up against an elusive category: likability. Also known in the industry as “cultural fit,” likability is a reason many candidates don’t make the final cut—the interviewers either didn’t like them or didn’t believe they would mesh well...

by Miriam Salpeter - May, 2013
Can you find a job using Twitter? Maybe you’ve heard that “Google is the new resume” and that your online presence is the most important thing hiring managers will consider when you apply for jobs.

However, social media should still be a key component of your job search. Why? What many people forg...
 
  8 Ways To Turn A Lead Into A Job
by Marty Nemko - May, 2013
You're looking for a job and someone tells you, "Speak with Joe Smith. He may be able to help you." But if you're like most people, you don't know how to turn the lead into a job. This plan will maximize your chances: 1. Ask for an introduction. Rather than contacting the lead, ask your referrer if s/he'd be willing to introduce you to the lead. Chemistry is usually best in-person but a Google Hangout or even teleconferenc...

  The 5 Biggest Myths About Networking
by Pete Leibman - May, 2013
If you’re getting ready for graduation, or if you’ve already graduated but you’re looking for a new job, you probably know you need to spend a lot of time networking. But, do you really know what networking is and what it’s not? During my teenage years, I was painfully shy, and I thought networking was a practice used only by the elite and powerful, a group I definitely did not feel part of. What I learned was the opp...
 
  If You Want a Good Job, Promote Yourself
by Bob Roth - May, 2013
The best employers keep their ears to the ground and listen for rumblings about college students who are getting things done. These employers maintain contact with professors, campus leaders, newspapers and community leaders, in order to stay on top of the “goings on” of students who are making an impact on and off campus. They want to learn of these students as early as possible, so they can follow their progress. In some cas...

by Robin Fisher Roffer - May, 2013
If you’re stuck in neutral and you need a new job, then get out of your own way and give back. I know it seems counter-intuitive, but if you’re feeling paralyzed by uncertainty and doubt, my best advice is to resist isolating and get out into your community.
