  Is there still a market for what you do?
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Oct, 2010
Most people know that certain sectors of the economy have been hit harder than others, like real estate, construction, and banking. If you’ve spent the last decade or two working in those industries, what are you supposed to do now? As you begin your job search and sit down to write your resume, you should ask yourself an important question: “Do any companies pay people to do what I do?” Remember five years ago when the...
 
  Looking For Work? Have You Considered Part-Time?
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Oct, 2010
I wish I could quote some studies showing how quickly the job market is improving, but unfortunately, things are still tough out there. Many of the unemployed have held full-time, high-paying jobs their entire careers and are struggling to land their next position. If you find yourself in this spot, limiting your job search to only full-time openings may be severely limiting your opportunities. The fact is, many compani...
 
  Managing Your Online Brand and Digital Dirt
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Oct, 2010
On the one hand, the Internet is a wonderful place to get your name out as a highly qualified job candidate. On the other hand, there may be information floating around about you that you’d rather was not shared with everyone in the world. How can you determine what’s out there in cyberspace?

An article published earlier this month showed that more than half of recent graduates from college did not receive a job offer prior to graduation, regardless of their undergraduate major. September 2010 data showed that the average length of unemployment was more than eight months. Scary statistics such as these have left many wondering if now is a good time to return to school. Here are some things to consider when makin...
 
  What NOT to Do in an Interview
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Oct, 2010
Last week I had lunch with a colleague who had recently hired someone for a part-time position for her office. My colleague was interested to observe the wide variety of people who applied for a low-paying, part-time position. She was even more intrigued by one candidate’s behavior during the interview. Apparently this candidate had called on her way to the interview to say she was en route. Based on her supposed whereab...
 
  You do what for a living?
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Oct, 2010
Some of you out there have nice, easily explainable jobs like “professor” or “salesman” or “consultant”. Others of you have job titles that people either totally don’t grasp or think are kind of odd. As a resume writer, I fall into the second category, with reactions to my vocation ranging from, “Wait, is that a euphemism for your being unemployed?” to “Why would anyone ever pay someone to write their resume?” Most people...

As we all know, hiring managers are receiving anywhere from dozens to hundreds of applications for most open positions these days. Given that atmosphere, this recruiter offered the following piece of advice: If you get an interview with a company, your resume has already convinced them that you could do the j...

  5 Success Tips for Gen Y
by Alexandra Levit - Oct, 2010
It's been a while since we've talked generationally, and since these ideas came up in two media interviews this week, I thought I'd share them here: *Focus on acquiring transferable skills. You have all the time in the world to get promoted and have the responsibility of a senior executive.
