  Your Elevator Speech: Keep It Simple Silly
by Harry Urschel - Nov, 2010
So often, when job seekers give their Elevator Speech at a networking event or when asked in a formal environment, they give an overly “slick” or a too detailed recitation. A key to success in networking with others, is for them to clearly understand what you do and what you are looking for. If you come across as if you’re trying to impress them too much, or if they don’t “get” what you do, you won’t get results. Furthermor...

  Stupid Mistakes Job Hunters Make
by Thomas J. Denham - Nov, 2010
1. Being Negative – Number 1 is not having a positive, upbeat and enthusiastic attitude. Evict any thoughts that are excuses, self-defeating, limiting, or roadblocks. Forget about what’s not working. Focus on what IS working for you. Put out positive energy. Key to your success is staying mentally and physically fit with a good diet, exercise, sound sleep and a dose of fun. 2. Insufficient Reflecting – STOP and really...

  Networking From The Opposite Direction
by Kevin Donlin - Oct, 2010
Here’s a Guerrilla Job Search maxim to live by: When in doubt, do the opposite. Think about it: If most job hunters are struggling to find work, why do what most job hunters are doing? Take email, for example. If most job seekers email their resumes to employers … and get no reply, why not try the opposite? The opposite of email could be in-person delivery, fax, or U.S. Mail, to name but three possibilities. Here’s an...
 
  An important question to ask your friends today – it could get you a job!
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Oct, 2010
I write often about the need to surround yourself with positive, supportive people during a stressful period of job transition. Connecting with family and friends regularly lifts your spirits and reminds your network to keep an eye out for you. It can also provide you with important insider information about the job market in your local community. I recently had lunch with a friend whose husband works for a Fortune 200 co...
 
  Helping Your Network to Help You (Find A Job)
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Oct, 2010
Remember the infamous scene in Jerry McGuire where Tom Cruise is standing in a locker room, begging Cuba Gooding Jr. to stop shooting his own career in the foot? You know the line: “Help me help you!” Many of us have family and friends who don’t really understand what we do for a living. I personally have a cousin who can’t explain her own husband’s job. We often recognize that those around us don’t really appreciate our...
