Tips to consider when evaluating your LinkedIn network
by Miriam Salpeter - Jul, 2011
What’s the most important thing to consider when building your network? Size? Quality of connections? Other factors? LinkedIn published a study that said men are better online networkers than women because they tend to have a greater ratio of connections compared to women. The study did not look into the quality of the connections for the various groups. But when it comes to networking, having a large network isn’t always t...

by Teena Rose - Jun, 2011
Think Twitter is a joke? Some say yes. There are great reasons for taking Twitter seriously, however, especially when one considers it a new job-search tool that hasn’t been fully tapped. Currently other job-search methods [posting your resume with job boards and emailing your resume to recruiters], what we might call traditional job-search techniques, are continuously eroding in effectiveness.

How having your own website helps you
by Miriam Salpeter - Jun, 2011
I always think one of the most frustrating aspects of job search is believing you’ve “done everything,” but aren’t finding an opportunity. I’ve never met a job seeker who actually has “done everything,” though, which I think is good news! Most people are very focused on out-dated tools and spend a disproportionate percentage of their time doing the same thing, over and over, without different results. There are so many grea...
How to Get a New Job Using Social Media
by Debra Wheatman - Jun, 2011
Did you know that 85% of available jobs are never advertised? Yes, it’s true. According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, only 15% of today’s career opportunities ever make it to the job boards.

It is easier to sit back and wai...

by Joan Runnheim Olson - Jun, 2011
After a networking meeting, it's important to follow up with a thank you letter. Start out by thanking the individual with whom you met. State the specific advice and leads you were given. Say you will keep in touch and do keep in touch! Add the individual to your contact management system.
