  It’s Been A While!
by Harry Urschel - Dec, 2009
I recently received an email from someone who’s been reading my blog and is looking for advice on his situation. He’s currently been out of work for nearly 3 years. Certainly his predicament isn’t unique, so I thought it would be helpful to discuss it here. His email stated (edited for brevity): "I had a question about something I didn't see addressed on your blog… A (Current) Employment Gap. I've managed to have a pr...
  The Shortest Distance Between YOU and $$$$? Network Calling!
by Bernadette Boas - Dec, 2009
Did you notice I did not say Cold Calling? I said Network Calling...more on that in a minute. Like so many people, when I went out on my own, I knew that my marketing plan would include various techniques; definitely networking, one-one close contact lead generation, referrals, partner programs, direct mail (maybe), third party telemarketing (maybe). But one technique I was not prepared to do, nor did not want to do was the...
  Polish Your Brand During the Holidays
by Kris Parfitt - Dec, 2009
There are many questions being asked this time of year about what is expected and/or appropriate actions towards professional peers and colleagues during the holidays. Do you give your boss a gift? Is it OK to bring baked goods to the office? Can I bring a date to the office party? How professional should I dress for the company’s holiday party? All these and the many more questions of professional etiquette during the holiday...

by Andy Robinson - Dec, 2009
How well are you "branded" amongst your network of connections - friends, family members, individuals with whom you share outside interests, vendors, clients, colleagues, former colleagues? • What comes to mind when people think of YOU? • Do your contacts fully understand what you do for a living and exactly HOW you add value to other people's lives? • Who's "radar screen" are YOU on when someone asks a contact if the...
  Five Tips for Evaluating a Role as a Board Member - Choose Wisely

Being asked to join the board of a community, professional or business organization certainly can be a boost to the ego. But, to make sure you say "Yes" for the right reasons, ask yourself these five questions, recommended by some seasoned board members: 1. "What do I bring to the table?

  LinkedIn - How often should I update my
by Andy Robinson - Dec, 2009
One of the features of LinkedIn that tends to be underutilized is the "Status Update" (also called your "Network Update") in your LinkedIn Profile. Your status update "block" is a white box located just below your picture on your "View My Profile" page. If you don't see such a block, then you've not posted a status update. From your LinkedIn Home Page or your "Edit My Profile" page, you can change your status update as fr...
  LinkedIn - How to Effectively Use LinkedIn's Group Feature to Grow Your Network
by Andy Robinson - Dec, 2009
The "Groups" feature of LinkedIn has continued to grow in popularity and utility. Groups are a powerful tool for expanding the depth and breadth of your LinkedIn network. Many Groups treat members similar to FIRST DEGREE connections -- allowing you to make direct contact with a Group member without a referral or "Inmail". I am currently an active member in over 30 Groups (LinkedIn allows you to join up to a maximum of 50...
  The Importance of 'Staying in the Loop' at Work - You Simply Can't Afford to be Out!
by Andy Robinson - Dec, 2009
Information is power. Knowledge is power. At work, information and knowledge allow to be at our best and contribute in a highly effective manner. We stay focused on the important, are fully aware of emerging issues and obstacles, understand the "big picture." Without timely information and knowledge, we end up working in a vacuum and we're not hooked in to "real time" needs, opportunities and circumstances. You simply c...

  Three Reasons Why LinkedIn is NOT the Only Way to Get a Job
by Joshua Waldman - Dec, 2009
There have been more and more stories of people finding work through LinkedIn. In fact, most recruiters I talk to say they are actively seeking candidates through keyword searches on LinkedIn. So why would a job seeker look anywhere else for their online networking? I think there are 3 reasons why it is a bad idea to corner yourself, as a job seeker, to just LinkedIn. But first let me preface this by saying I LOVE Linked...
