  Use your FEAR of speaking as a motivator
by Yvonne Brown - Nov, 2010
I remember the first time I had to give a speech. My hands were clammy, my heart was pounding, and my throat was dry. I was terrified! I remembered the phrase ‘feel the fear and do it anyway’ and decided to just go for it. I had written and rehearsed my speech. I knew the content and believed in it. “What’s to worry about” I thought, like Nike says "just do it!" I made it through the speech and it got better once I star...
 
  #1 Piece of Resume Advice: Write For Your Audience
by Cathy Eng - Nov, 2010
Whether you are writing a book, article, thesis, letter, or a resume, the same basic rule applies: Write for your audience (in this case, recruiters, hiring managers and your future boss). In the world of resume writing, that translates to two things. First, make your resume easy to read. If it is sloppy, crowded, bare or confusing, you need to take a step back and think about what your perfect employee’s resume would loo...
 
  Moving Up In Your Company? YOU Need A Resume, Too!
by Cathy Eng - Nov, 2010
I have written resumes for many clients who were not moving companies and some who weren’t even moving departments! They were simply asked to present an updated resume to apply for a higher-tiered position within their company. And what was even more surprising was that they felt blindsided at this request from management! If you are thinking of applying for a higher position in your company, be prepared to present a new,...
 
  Renovate Your Informational Interview Strategy
by Alexia Vernon - Nov, 2010
First, in an informational interview you have an opportunity to learn about a specific company. A lot of jobseekers, particularly young professionals, use informational interviews for this reason. Most of the time we actually know quite a bit about the particular company, and that’s why we’re in the room. We aspire to work there. If this is the case, make sure you ask questions you don’t already know the answer to. Use the kno...
 
  Tuesdays Are Terrific! The Best Day And Time To Contact HR
by Cathy Eng - Nov, 2010
Many job seekers focus solely on the “how” of contacting potential employers, but the “when” can be crucial to getting noticed as well. Contacting them when they are more likely to be alert and responsive (and not tired, hungry, or stressed) is all about timing. That includes planning the optimal time and day to contact HR (to either initiate contact, follow up after sending a resume, or follow up post-interview). Accord...
 
  Watch Out! Great Careers Can Creep Up on You
by Dawn Lennon - Nov, 2010
Where we start isn’t always where we finish. At least that’s the case with many careers. It’s crazy to think that when we’re in high school we’d have a clear idea about what we want to do for a lifetime. Nevertheless, we go on to technical school or college choosing a trade or a major which declares, “This is my future.” The business world is a big place. There are tens of thousands of career paths in as many businesses....
 
  Being “Assertive” in Job Interviews
by Harry Urschel - Nov, 2010
I received a note from someone that said: “I was told I was not assertive enough in an interview I just had. How do you do that?” Good question, and one that I think affects a number of job seekers. How do you express assertiveness without being over-bearing or offensive? And what does being “assertive” really mean? One nice result of this encounter, is that the employer gave an honest critique that most people are n...
 
  Resignation Letters: Dos and Don'ts
by Barbara Safani - Nov, 2010
Are you preparing to resign from your current job? AOL Jobs recently spoke with Dr. Randall Hanson, founder of Quintessential Careers, one of the oldest and most comprehensive career development sites on the Web, for advice on the best way to resign from a job. According to Hanson, a resignation letter documents your last day of work, but it also eliminates the potential for any miscommunication that can occur when an emplo...
 
  10 Reasons Saying “No” Can Help Your Career
by Dawn Lennon - Nov, 2010
Sounds counter-intuitive, doesn’t it? After all, our careers will grow, we’re told, when we say “yes” to: -A new project or team leadership -A lateral move or promotion -Domestic or global relocation -Management’s requests When you’ve waited a long time for an opportunity, it would seem absurd not to snap it up. Right? Take stock. It’s flattering when management turns to us and says, “We think you’re the rig...
 
  Failure Is Inevitable. Ready to Handle It? | Career Strife Repositioned
by Dawn Lennon - Nov, 2010
“Be careful,” we’re told as kids. “You don’t want to make a mess.” “Double check your answers,” we’re told in school. “You don’t want a bad grade.” “Better achieve your performance goals,” we’re told at work. “You don’t want to get a poor rating or low raise, be demoted or lose your job.” Failure seems to come with negative consequences. Really? Always? The fallacy of playing it safe So much is written abou...
