by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Oct, 2010
Remember the infamous scene in Jerry McGuire where Tom Cruise is standing in a locker room, begging Cuba Gooding Jr. to stop shooting his own career in the foot? You know the line: “Help me help you!” Many of us have family and friends who don’t really understand what we do for a living. I personally have a cousin who can’t explain her own husband’s job. We often recognize that those around us don’t really appreciate our...

  Tips for Writing A Winning Proposal
by Judith Lindenberger - Oct, 2010
So how do you or your organization get up to $600,000 in state funds to underwrite the mission of your choice? Well, you have to ask for it, as any well meaning friend or relative will tell you. But how you ask is critical. Grant proposals have to sing -- and gain the attention of the funding source as surely as a mezzo-soprano reaches the upper balcony. Lots of frugal nonprofits have concluded that money spent on a profes...
 
  Why your next job might come via LinkedIn
by Laura Smith-Proulx - Oct, 2010
As you might expect, I speak with many senior executives and other job hunters on a regular basis. As I review their job search techniques and situation, the common refrain I hear is that they’ve set up a LinkedIn Profile, but then failed to do anything else with it.

Job seekers frequently approached me by saying, “I’ll take anything.” That was one of the biggest turnoffs. It wasn’t my responsibility to identify the right job for every person who walked through the door. It was their responsibility to figure that out before the interview conversation ever happened. There is the misconcep...

Recently I attended a local job fair and spoke to several of the employers to solicit their response to the following question: "If you were to offer one tip for job seekers attending a job fair, what would it be?"
