Top Three Ways to Find a Job in 2010
by Kevin Donlin - Dec, 2009
As 2009 draws to a close, most job seekers can only say, “Good riddance.” According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average job search as of November 2009 took 28.5 weeks -- more than 7 months. That’s the longest since record keeping began in 1948. But there is good news: People are still finding jobs, often faster than average. How are they doing it? From what I can see, talking to and counseling hundreds...
The Twitter Experiment
by Stephanie Thomas, Ph.D. - Dec, 2009
Experiments rarely tell us what we expect. That's the dirty secret of science. - Kevin Dunbar, Director of the Laboratory For Complex Thinking and Reasonsing, University of Toronto, Scarborough I began using Twitter in late September of this year, largely as an experiment. There were two primary motivators for the experiment. First, my partners and I were curious about using social media for business development purposes....
Trust Your Strategy, Not LinkedIn
by Joshua Waldman - Dec, 2009
LinkedIn is a very powerful SUV. I get in it for a road-trip. I turn it on, take it to the car wash. Then I realized that I have no idea where I want to go. The maps in the back seat pile up and spill over, leaving me in limbo. Where do I go now? Relying on technology to make our career decisions is probably the biggest fallacy any job seeker could make. In the 1970s, British economist E.F.Schumacher wrote that the...
Five Ways to Beat the Ugly Networking Stigma
by Kris Parfitt - Dec, 2009
“My intention is to meet five people at this function who I really connect with and that two of them eventually become clients.” My friend was impressed while somewhat doubtful of my declaration. My actual success that night was that I met ten people with whom I connected, but I didn’t find the opening to give all of them my business card. It’s not that I’m shy – by nature I’m quite the extrovert. But I have a stigma about ne...
The Art of Working and Reworking Your Network
by John Crant - Dec, 2009
Why is it so difficult for people to turn to network contacts for help on the second or third time? The simple answer is guilt. We all have that nagging voice in our heads that our call is not of interest, and is really a nuisance, to those in our network that we may call more than once asking for help. Many times, we even play out the mental conversations to our detriment, “Why are they calling me again, I can’t help them!...
Match(.com) Your Way To A New Job!
by Jacqui Barrett-Poindexter - Dec, 2009
FIRST IMPRESSIONS MATTER First impressions matter in dating and job search. I know this all too well as I have moved through dozens of first-date impressions during the seven years following my divorce and before I remarried in 2008. My husband, Rob, and I met online via Match.com. Besides the first-impression story he wrote in his profile that resonated with my personal needs and priorities for a great mate and life-long...
Could That Sound Really Be Opportunity? During The Holidays?
by Dawn Bugni - Dec, 2009
After receiving the topic for this month’s Career Collective post, I bet I’ve read more than 50 articles addressing different aspects of staying motivated during the holiday season in the past few weeks. And that’s a mere drop in the bucket compared to what’s out there. Today, a Google search using “Job search during the holidays” brings back 97,500 (and counting) results. In fact, digging through my own archives, I found a po...

by Miriam Salpeter - Dec, 2009
With so much great advice about how to use the holidays to network, I thought it would be appropriate to revisit an important, but overlooked topic to help job seekers stand a head above the rest at this busy and fun time of the year. Networking is great. Meeting a lot of new people is terrific. However, knowing what to do once you’ve made a contact is just as important as finding the contact. How can you hook your contacts...
It’s Been A While!
by Harry Urschel - Dec, 2009
I recently received an email from someone who’s been reading my blog and is looking for advice on his situation. He’s currently been out of work for nearly 3 years. Certainly his predicament isn’t unique, so I thought it would be helpful to discuss it here. His email stated (edited for brevity): "I had a question about something I didn't see addressed on your blog… A (Current) Employment Gap. I've managed to have a pr...
