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. And – when they do get advertised, the competition is fierce. So why do so many job seekers spend so much time searching job boards for work? My guess is that it is the path of least resistance. It is easier to sit back and wai...
Social media: So what’s the point?
by Dawn Bugni - Jun, 2011
I don’t know about you, but part of my ability to learn new things comes through understanding the “why” behind a given task or project. I better visualize the steps needed to reach the goal when I know why I’m doing something. I want to understand the end benefit. My personal need leads me to share with you the whys behind why you want (dare I say, need) to incorporate social media into your job search and career growth strat...

by Walter Akana - Jun, 2011
At the invitation of Sarah Behunek, Director of Alumni Relations, I had the privilege of doing a video shoot, with Tonya Riggs Clement, for the University of Colorado Leeds Business School. In case you don't know who she is, Tonya is one of the Everest Peace Climbers.

It's All in the Follow Up: What to Do After a Networking Meeting
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.

Networking: Anywhere, Anytime
by Joan Runnheim Olson - Jun, 2011
I'm always touting the importance of networking and try to practice what I preach. I've been flying across the country presenting worshops and try to strike up a conversation with whomever is sitting next to me on the airplane. Of course, I try to gauge whether or not they're open to talking. If they whip out their book and don't exchange pleasantries, I leave them alone. On a recent trip to Lansing, Michigan, I sat next to a...

“Good communication does not mean that you have to speak in perfectly formed sentences and paragraphs. It isn’t about slickness. Simple and clear go a long way.” -John Kotter Is your communication clear or calculated?

After they told me the story behind the a...

Invaluable Resources for Job Search Success
by Heather Mundell - May, 2011
Embarking on a job search is a lot like heading out on a backpacking trip. Sure, you could show up at the trailhead with only a liter of water, a granola bar and an indomitable spirit. But come the afternoon, after the biting flies have found you and your granola bar is a distant memory, your energy starts to flag. By nightfall, as the cold sets in and you realize you're lost, you know it's time to turn back. Just like a ba...
MAKE THAT NET-WORK
by Wendy Adams - May, 2011
The old adage of its not what you know, but who you know will never go out of style. We see it daily represented in almost anything publically displayed in the media. Now that media is currently most strongly held in the hands of the people, there is no shortage of proof that power is grown by the more people you know; the greater the access you have to these people and by the diversity of people you know. We are expanding...
