  Are Job Fairs a Good Use of Your Job Search Time?
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Sep, 2010
When you’re out of work, you suddenly find many friends and family who are willing to share their ideas with you about how to get a job. In their attempts to be helpful, people who care about you will often pass on every single tip or nugget they hear about a job opportunity—leaving it up to you to sift through the information in order to find something you can actually use. In many areas of the U.S., the issue is not a la...
 
  Facebook: The Untapped Job Board
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Sep, 2010
Most of what you hear about facebook while looking for a job involves keeping your information as private as possible from potential employers. While this is good advice, facebook can also be a valuable tool in your job search, as many smaller companies post their job ads on their facebook pages. If you are looking for work at a smaller local company, “liking” their facebook page can often be a great place to start. Open...
 
  Hate Your Job? Have a Plan Before You Quit
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Sep, 2010
I had lunch with a friend the other day who left her job earlier this year. She relayed to me how she had gotten fed up with a particular client, and so she decided to quit. She had about four months of living expenses saved up, so she figured she was good to go while she looked for another job. Four months later, she finds herself running out of money with no prospects in the pipeline. I was a little shocked to realize...

She said something that stood out to me: “I wake up every day and think about being unemployed, but my contacts don’t think about me until I remind them”. Remind your contacts that you’re looking All too often, those who are looking for work feel embarrassed to repeatedly...

While LinkedIn is certainly useful for this purpose, it can also provide invaluable information about which companies you should target during your job search. Did you know that LinkedIn now allows you to follow all the activity related to a particular company? You do this by searching for the company on the site and clicking “Follow Company”. This st...
 
  Using Networking Groups to Your Advantage
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Sep, 2010
I know what you’re thinking: walking into a room full of strangers and announcing that you’re unemployed is as far from your comfort zone as you can get. Networking is awkward and makes you feel desperate. Do you really have to do it? The answer is no. Some people do find work without assertively networking. It just generally takes them a lot longer than those who are out actively saying, “I have a lot to offer and I ne...

If the idea of networking makes you want to run for the hills, this post is for you. There is no activity that inspires fear and loathing in a job search more than networking. First off, the word networking is loaded with cringe-worthy connotations, as in networking event, which makes many of us start sweating just imagining the elevator speeches and small talk. Networking has gotten a really bad rap. And for really good...
 
  Grow your network in three easy steps
by Nimish Thakkar - Sep, 2010
Networking is a powerful tool that can catapult even ordinary careers to extraordinary heights. From entry level employees to business owners to politicians, individuals at all levels have leveraged networking to achieve their professional aspirations. Despite its proven effectiveness, many fail to exploit “people power”, mostly due to self-imposed, often myopic, misconceptions. I have come across myths ranging from “I am...

by Nimish Thakkar - Sep, 2010
From tweeting about office gossip to discussing dating nightmares, social media has literally redefined the way we communicate about our personal and professional lives.
