  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...

You’ve been working on your resume, and you fashioned a fancy branding statement for yourself. Of course, you want to display it across the top of your resume, but where else should you be using it? Cover letter: Format your cover letter to match your resume by copying your contact information and branding statement in the same format. Thank you letter: Same as your cover letter. Business card: If you’re using networ...
 
  How to Take the Intimidation Out of Networking
by Heather Mundell - Sep, 2010
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...
 
  Your Next Job Could be a Tweet Away
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. As a career coach and professional resume writer, I am witnessing an emerging trend: On the employment front, both job seekers and hiring managers are embracing social media with open arms. In fact, the utilization of social media is so prevalent, the very ter...
 
  Step up your professional development to combat economy woes
by Nimish Thakkar - Aug, 2010
Recently, I coached Nick Smith, a fascinating client, in fact, one of the most intelligent professionals I have ever met. Yet, despite the abundance of natural talent, Nick was unemployed for a very long time. After a series of setbacks, he knew something was wrong but couldn’t debunk the “mystery cause” that was foiling his career goals repeatedly. During one of our coaching sessions, we finally hit the life-changing eurek...
 
  Just How Many Jobs Are You Missing Out On?
by Louise Fletcher - Aug, 2010
I recently nagged a client to get her LinkedIn profile fully up and running. She emailed me the other day to say that she got an email from a recruiter within 2 days of doing it. A new survey explains why. Jobvite surveyed 600 HR and recruiting professionals across the US and found that 73% are using social media and online networks for recruitment purposes. Of those companies, 78% cited LinkedIn as a tool they used regular...
 
  How to Make Your Job Search Fun
by Kevin Donlin - Aug, 2010
If you’re looking for a job, here’s a strange question: How much fun are you having? Not much? Well, you might want to change that. That’s the advice of former Minnesota Viking Fran Tarkenton, who suggests you try to find the fun in every task: “If it’s not fun, you’re not doing it right,” he says. Wouldn’t it be nice if you were as motivated to write your resume tomorrow as you were to play Little League or skip...
 
  Grow Your Career Networking Seeds Organically
by Jacqui Barrett-Poindexter - Aug, 2010
I admit, I’ve never really embraced the word, “networking,” or the idea of it. Instead, I love the concept of NetWeaving. Over at the NetWeavers International website, they promote a pay-it-forward approach and publish a creed that talks about a “shift from thinking about WIIFM (What’s in it for Me) to WIIFY (What’s in it for YOU).” As well, they discuss strategies in learning how to be a resource for others to provide informa...
 
  Are You Headed Toward or Away?
by Christine Hassler - Aug, 2010
Our motivation is directional, impacting the results we create and the ease in which we create them. Think about when you are motivated to do something. Are you motivated more by what you want to get away from or what you want to move toward? TOWARD motivation moves us toward more of what we desire while AWAY from motivation is an attempt to get us away from circumstances/feelings that are causing discomfort. Let's consider...
