  I’ve Got a LinkedIn Profile - Now What?
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Jul, 2010
If you’re currently searching for a job, Linkedin offers a free and easy way to create a presence for yourself online. While some people think of the site as simply another place to post their resumes, it offers many other career promotion tools as well. For example: Start a reading list LinkedIn is not a great place to advertise the trashy romance novel you read by the pool, but it does allow you to show professional...
 
  Using Networking Groups to Your Advantage
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Jul, 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...
 
  What To Do About An Employment Gap
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Jul, 2010
Historically, having a significant gap in your professional employment has been seen as a huge negative on a resume. However, given that a May Gallup poll showed that 19% of the American population is underemployed (either not working or working part-time instead of full-time), there are many, many job seekers out there wondering how to handle this resume issue. The good news is that there are ways to present gaps in employm...
 
  Two Ways to Network Smarter
by Kevin Donlin - Jun, 2010
Networking -- everyone will tell you it’s a great way to connect with employers. Yet, I get more questions and complaints from readers about networking than almost any other employment topic. Why is that? Here’s an example. Russ, in Minneapolis, writes: I am looking for a job. The problem is that I have not the foggiest idea where to network. I am looking for a management position, possibly in manufacturing, but I...
 
  NextGen Sales: Understanding Social Selling
by Barbara Giamanco - Jun, 2010
There is fair amount of buzz about a concept called “social selling” (often used synonymously with Sales 2.0, a term coined and trademarked by Nigel Edelshain). Certainly some people will argue that sales, particularly B2B sales, has always depended on a sales reps ability to build a relationship with their potential buyer, which could be viewed as a social activity. Since successful selling has always revolved around relation...
 
  Don’t Go it Alone, Prosper with Partners - Five Tips
by Bernadette Boas - Jun, 2010
I just returned from an early morning partner referral meeting; and when I got back to my desk (currently a library table/chair) I looked over the notes I took, the thank you’s and leads that I was given or provided and I was so appreciative of having that group of people around me - supporting, motivating, counseling, and challenging me. Though I am a solopreneur myself with a part time contract assistant, my own business...
 
  Why Networking Gets a Bad Rap and What to Do About It
by Barbara Safani - Jun, 2010
Many people think that networking during a job search means calling everyone you know and asking them for a job. They associate networking with being pushy, overbearing, and an overall pest. People often shy away from networking because they don’t want to be labeled as this type of person. But research shows that 70-80 percent of all jobs are filled through networking. How can this be so, if networkers are such an annoying, se...
 
  The Job Search Basics
by Kevin Donlin - Jun, 2010
I got an email recently from a man that read: “I followed all your advice but I have not gotten any job interviews. Do you have any other suggestions?" I took a look at his LinkedIn profile and found that he hasn't followed all of the advice I gave him. In fact, as near as I can tell, he’s not doing anything I suggested. And, yet, he wants more ideas from me. So, here's my advice to him and anyone else struggling t...
