3 Easy-to-Make Mistakes Job Candidates Should Avoid At All Costs
by Amanda Abella - Dec, 2011
Companies usually rev up hiring in January thanks to new budgets and the expiration of hiring freezes, which means if you’re a job seeker, you have an opportunity. But as a recruiter for a private employment agency, I can tell you that so many applicants are disqualified because of one wrong move. I interview droves of people and yet only want to refer about 10 percent to companies we work with. What disqualifies so...
Top Tips for Pumping Up Your Job Search Results
by Joan Runnheim Olson - Dec, 2011
1. Network, Network, Network!!! Up to 80% of jobs are found through networking. In addition to face-to-face networking (the most powerful) be sure to add social media networking to your list. 2. Treat your job search like a job. Be willing to spend 35 hours a week in your search if you're unemployed and up to 15 if you're employed. Any less than that will most likely lengthen the amount of time you spend looking for yo...
Micro Job Search Approach
by Georgia Adamson - Dec, 2011
As mentioned before, gone are the days when you could throw resumes at a bunch of “help wanted” ads in the local papers and hope enough would stick to get you a new job. The initial successor to that haphazard technique—posting your resume on a zillion online job boards—has also run into major problems over the past few years. For one thing, this change meant that you had a much larger competitive arena to struggle with in ord...
Online submitting is not DEAD
by Hallie Crawford - Dec, 2011
You might think that when you submit to an online application your resume is going into a deep black hole. While it might feel that way, it’s not always the case. I’ve had two career coaching clients recently who submitted to online jobs. One client got a phone call within 2 hours to set up an interview. He didn’t get that particular job but through that person he heard about another job and was able to secure a job within...
The Art of the Exit
by Dee McCrorey - Dec, 2011
This past year I've experienced "transitional speed-up" while writing Innovation in a Reinvented World, a reminder that embracing the ebb and flow of disruption is the norm in this new reality. The speed of change and the degree of complexity in solving big problems in the new world of business requires a faster regeneration of our innovation DNA. Our ability to manage beginnings and endings, entrances and exits with agili...
Where Are Those “Hidden Job Market” Jobs Hiding?
by Georgia Adamson - Dec, 2011
I’ve heard references to the hidden job market that go back decades, so this isn’t a new concept. We used to say that only a small percentage of available jobs were ever found in the classified section of the local newspaper. Fast-forward to the Internet age, and the statement changes to “only a small percentage of available jobs are advertised on the Web.” So where are those hidden jobs hiding? Why aren’t they being adver...
How to network and job search when you have a job
by Miriam Salpeter - Nov, 2011
How can you actively job search and network, even when you are already over-scheduled and employed in a full-time job? As one of Quintessential Careers Career Masterminds, I contributed responses to this and other questions they asked as part of their anniversary celebration. Here is my answer: Looking for a job is a full-time job itself. When you already have a full-time job, it’s even more important to leverage social-...

Is It Time to Rethink Your Job Search Strategy?
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Sep, 2011
Conducting a job search can be a bit of a confusing experience. If you have been looking for employment for weeks without an interview call, you’re likely to be thinking, “What could I be doing wrong?” Sometimes, it’s that you need to make a few small tweaks to your resume—and other times, you need to completely overhaul your job search. If you’re not getting any callbacks, there’s a good chance that you fall into the lat...
Find Great References
by Tory Johnson - Sep, 2011
It is inevitable that at some point in your job search you will be asked for references, and when you are, you’ll want to be sure you have a great group of advocates who are prepared with answers that will help rather than hinder your chances at landing the position. References are something you should think about at the beginning of your interview process and not just at the end when you are under immediate pressure to provid...
