  Does Your Resume Make You Look Like a Job Hopper?
by Barbara Safani - Jun, 2010
When hiring managers read resumes, one of the first things they look at is dates of employment. If they see multiple short employment stints, they will often assume that you are a job hopper, question your ability to stay at one company for long, and move on to the next candidate. Often people’s choppy employment record may be caused by several factors beyond their control; but unless the story behind your job changes is ma...
  Interview Success: First Step, The Resume
by Patricia Erickson - Jun, 2010
When I work with clients looking to improve their interviewing skills, they are surprised when I mention that the interview process begins with the resume. Of course it does. Why is the resume so important? It’s a major element of the job search because without an effective resume, there’s no reason to worry about interviewing. But really, it is much more than that. Of course, the resume is a document that summarizes your e...
  Resume Writing Checklist
by Patricia Erickson - Jun, 2010
In a recent blog post, I mentioned the importance of a high impact resume on the interview process. Clearly, a well written resume gets you in the door, but it also stacks you up against your competition and ranks you in the employer’s eyes even before you get in the door. If your resume puts you in the top three out of ten great – you can work with that. However, if your resume places number ten out of ten, you’ve really g...

In the Get Interviews, Get Hired Now! interview success guide, being prepared for your next telephone interview is the second step in the interview process. If you are well prepared for your telephone interview, you’re on your way to a great on site interview with your prospective employer. Depending on the employer, telephone interviewers might ask many of the questions you would be asked in an on site / in person interview....
  Telephone Interview Tips #2
by Patricia Erickson - Jun, 2010
In a recent blog post, I mentioned that the second step in the Get Interviews, Get Hired Now! interview success guide is telephone interview preparation. If you’re well prepared for your telephone interview, chances are you’ll be invited in for a face-to-face interview. And, in the telephone interview, you will be faced with many of the same issues as you would be in a face-to-face interview. So, you’re preparing for the...
  The Best Job Seeking LinkedIn Applications
by Joshua Waldman - Jun, 2010
Use Them, They’re Free During my LinkedIn profile audits, one of the first questions I answer is if the job seeker uses a LinkedIn Application or not. The applications on Linkedin are probably one of the best personal branding tools you have. Without the colors of your most recent book, or the wisdom of your most recent blog post, your profile looks awfully similar to the 50 million others. What’s even better is that...
  How to Organize Your Contact Network for Success
by Andy Robinson - Jun, 2010
All to often I find that my coaching clients, faced with an impending job change -- voluntary or involuntary -- realize very quickly that their contact network is "stale" and rather shallow. It is MUCH easier to maintain and nourish your network on an ongoing basis rather than play "catch-up" when you find yourself in need of help from others. Your network of business, professional and personal contacts is the most valuable...
  The Amputated Resume: Is Yours Missing Critical Details That Can Get You Hired?
by Laura Smith-Proulx - Jun, 2010
I’ve seen an alarming trend among self-written resumes lately, where job hunters are positioning themselves for promotion, but have failed to include any information that substantiates their placement at this level. If you’ve decided that it’s time for the next step up in your career, it’s a good idea to use prominent wording and a resume title that clearly shows your intent. But if you forgot to include supporting detai...
  Your Phone in the Jobsearch
by Julie Walraven - Jun, 2010
The telephone has always played an important role in the job search but since cell phones have changed the rules somewhat, let’s revisit how to best use your phone in the job search. Q: Should I put my cell phone number on the resume? In today’s world, you need your cell phone on the resume. Most business calls are returned during daytime hours. You need a number that a hiring manager can easily access during the day. If y...
  Dealing With Inappropriate Interview Questions
by Harry Urschel - Jun, 2010
In your job search, if you are interviewing regularly, it’s highly likely that sooner or later you will be asked a question that may seem inappropriate or legally dubious. How you view that question, and how you respond will very likely have a great impact on your success. I recently had someone in my job search class tell me about an interview he had at a small company. The hiring manager asked what year he graduated...
