  Yet Another Reason to Clean Up Your Facebook Profile
by Lindsey Pollak - Jul, 2011
Over the years I’ve written multiple posts about the importance of cleaning up your online image and, specifically, your Facebook profile. When I first wrote about this topic in 2007, I found a study by the Ponemon Institute, a privacy think tank, reporting that 35 percent of hiring managers used Google to do online background checks on job candidates, and 23 percent admitted to looking people up on social networking sites....
 
  Your Digital Dirt May Have Just Gotten Messier
by Barbara Safani - Jul, 2011
I’ve been writing about employers who Google candidates prior to interviewing them or hiring them for some time, but the stakes on using information found online to make a hiring decision just got higher. AOL recently reported that the Federal Trade Commission recently granted background check company Social Intelligence permission to search information from people’s social networking sites as part of routine background che...
 
  Talk about commitment – career coaching in the janitor’s closet!
by Hallie Crawford - Jun, 2011
During one of my recent career coaching groups, client Brent admitted he had been attending our career coaching calls from some very interesting places at his company. Brent is one of the most committed clients I have ever worked with. I’m constantly impressed with his positive attitude, his willingness to take a look at the tough obstacles in his way, and he is the first one to take action on our homework every week. On t...
 
  Why Your Email Address Matters
by Caitlin McNally - Jun, 2011
You may have just updated your resume, fine-tuned your cover letter and discovered that the job of your dreams was recently posted online. You plan to reply to this job with the perfect email that will present yourself as a true professional. To accomplish this, you double and triple-check your email message, resume, and cover letter for spelling and grammar mistakes. No doubt, perfecting every last detail in your email res...
 
  Are You a Reactor or a Responder?
by Andy Robinson - Jun, 2011
As a leader, as a human, it's natural and instinctive to REACT to a situation -- allowing our EMOTIONS to drive our immediate behavior. Many times, our initial/immediate reaction is something we regret later or is something we realize could have been handled much better. Great leaders are conscious of their reaction and response to situations. The best leaders substitute reaction with a conscious RESPONSE to a given situ...
 
  Do You Have Interview-Ready Hair?
by Barbara Safani - Jun, 2011
I’ve known a lot of men who were sensitive about their hair. Guys who didn’t want to part with their long locks for the sake of an office job, men who were concerned they didn’t have enough hair, and others who checked out the gray around the temples and thought about coloring it. But men rarely talk to me about their hair prior to an interview and if you think about it, that’s as good a time as any to discuss the topic. So...
 
  How Many Americans Are Happy at Work?
by Barbara Safani - Jun, 2011
According to a recent survey of close to 2,400 US employees conducted by Mercer, half of US employees are not happy in their jobs. Here are some other interesting stats from the survey: • Thirty-two percent of US workers are currently considering leaving their organization, up from 23% in 2005. • Twenty-one percent are not looking to leave but view their employers unfavorably and have low scores on key measures of engag...
 
  Positivity and High Performance - Characteristics of High-Performing Business Teams
by Dr. Maynard Brusman - Jun, 2011
Enlightened leaders over the past two years became aware of the need for resilience, and restructuring their organizations for a period of survival and stabilization. Now leaders must rebound and take the next steps for a sustainable future. They must refocus, inspire and innovate to lead successfully and grow their business. I was recently working with one of my San Francisco Bay Area executive coaching clients – the presid...
 
  Managing your career in a bad economy
by Hallie Crawford - Jun, 2011
I was interviewed on the radio recently in Atlanta, on Q100, talking about whether the economy’s getting better and how people are feeling about it. The good news is that more of my clients are scoring job interviews. In fact, two of my clients recently have secured new jobs. I’ve also noticed that despite high unemployment rates, employee confidence is coming back. I’m hearing of clients getting called by recruiters again, in...
 
  Why "Grunt Work" Matters
by Lindsey Pollak - Jun, 2011
I’ve become increasingly distressed over the years by the number of students and recent grads who complain to me that their jobs or internships contain too much “grunt work.” (Interestingly, these complaints have not slowed at all in the bad economy, when one might think any job, including one that requires some “gruntage,” is better than none.) First, let’s define this yucky phrase. According to a (possibly dubious?) entr...
