Would You Hire You?
by Debra Wheatman - Dec, 2010
I always feel satisfied when I complete a résumé for a client of mine and they say, “I look so good now – even I would hire me.” While having an outstanding résumé that highlights your true strengths is invaluable, it is equally important to seek opportunities that are realistic. Early in my career when I was in corporate HR, I cannot tell you the number of inappropriate résumés I received. It was so bad sometimes that I w...

Here are the three pieces that fit together to shape how employers see you. Are you lacking in any of these areas? 1....
How to Fire a Client or Partner
by Alexandra Levit - Nov, 2010
As a business and workplace author and speaker, I’m always getting asked about how to cope with getting fired, or how to fire a wayward employee. But no one ever talks about the best way to cut ties with an individual you’re working with as a client or a partner. In my native world of public relations, the idea of firing a client who is paying you is virtually unheard of. You simply put up with the abuse no matter how sev...
The Dos and Don’ts of Thank You Notes
by Lindsey Pollak - Nov, 2010
Last week I talked about how to ask people for advice. This week, I thought it would be helpful to talk about how to thank people for the advice (and any other assistance) you receive. How perfect that it’s Thanksgiving week, too! Here are my top tips: Email thank yous are acceptable. I admit I’ve changed my mind over the years about email thank you notes. For a long time, I preached the importance of sending handwritten...

by Miriam Salpeter - Nov, 2010
Do you have an idea that will make a difference in your community in the areas of education, social services, environment, health care or helping others engage in encore careers (careers that combine purpose, passion and a paycheck)? If you are at least 45 years old, take note! Civic Ventures (a think tank on boomers, work and social purpose) just announced its new Launch Pad contest, which is designed to discover five inspir...

Just the other day, I had another person tell me all they want to do is work at Google. I get this one a lot, so I’ve started asking why. The response usually focuses on one of the following: • “Because it’s fun.” • “They really support you.” • “They give you room to be yourself.” I also usually hear: • “… and they have great perks.” It makes sense – Google offers great health care, child care, flex time, generous compen...

About a year ago I got tickets to a Paul McCartney concert for my husband’s birthday. It was amazing to see how, now well-past that mythical and unimaginable age 64, McCartney is ever-brilliant. One of my favorite stories about the Beatles goes back to the mid-1960’s when McCartney woke up in the middle of the night with a song idea. He liked it so much that he immediately played it through on the piano to ensure that h...
Job Search Essentials: New Resume, New Suit, New Attitude?
by Cathy Eng - Nov, 2010
When I was searching for my first corporate job, I was called a few days after an interview and told, "Thank you for coming in, however we’ve decided to offer the position to someone else." I politely thanked her and let her know I appreciated the interview and follow-up call. The next day, I received a call from the same person with a job offer. I remember her words so vividly: "I’ll bet you weren’t expecting to hear from me!...
Professional Resume Writer Declares Networking is Key
by Paul Freiberger - Nov, 2010
Talk to a professional resume writer or a career counselor and they’ll tell you that you need a high quality resume. You expect that. But you might surprised when they tell you that networking is even more important than the resume. As an example, consider former President Clinton, certainly a man with a strong resume.
