Working? Looking? What You Need Right Now
by Michele Woodward - Sep, 2012
Last week a friend told me about a job she’s filling and asked if I had any candidates to recommend. It’s a senior job that will pay in the good six-figures, with budget and people authority. It’s with an organization with a mission, and it’s often in the news. Immediately, I thought of a perfect candidate and told my friend that I’d send over the candidate’s LinkedIn profile so she could get a sense of the person and se...
Tips On Time Management
by Valerie Sokolosky - Sep, 2012
Try to use waiting time (Dr’s office, business appointments) to knock out paperwork. Is everything on your list for today a priority? If not, put it on the list of “nice-to-do’s.” Maintain a list of most important things to do. Those you don’t want to do? “Eat the Frog.” Examine your time-wasting habits (e.g., checking email/texts too often). Eliminate them. Minimize — as gently as you can — those people, tasks who...

With so many employees having to remain in the workforce longer than they anticipated, it’s critical to help them find the right career fit as well. In some cases, when you’ve been in a certain industry for a long time, it can be harder to think outside the box and see yourself in a different role than you’ve been in before. What if you didn’t like your last career very much which is part of why you’re leaving? One of the...

How to Decide to Apply for a Job
by Miriam Salpeter - Sep, 2012
Just because you would be willing to take any job someone offers does not mean you should apply for every position you review. How can you evaluate job descriptions to decide if it is worth your time to submit an application? Answer the following questions: Do you have the required qualifications? Employers are asking for the equivalent of the sun, moon, and stars in their preferred qualifications, but it's the mandatory re...
How to find a job over 50?
by Miriam Salpeter - Sep, 2012
I am over 50, and just got laid off after working in the same place for 15 years. How should I approach prospective employers and deal with the age issue? I have a lot of experience, but the age thing seems like a big deal. No one doubts it is difficult to find a job after working in one place for over a decade. The job market is different today than 10 years ago. Expectations are different, employers source candidates dif...
It's Your Time: Executive Time Management
by Suzanne Bates - Sep, 2012
At this stage in your life, you have certainly learned something about how to be productive. You don't get tapped for a top job, or lead an organization, unless you can get things done. Still, even seasoned leaders tell me they sometimes have a nagging feeling that they spend too much time on the wrong things, and too little time on the right ones. In the heat of the day, the consequences may seem insignificant. In the long...

For some of us that works; others are left to ask how things got so overwhelmingly complicated.

Performance Reviews–A Valuable Job Search Tool
by Georgia Adamson - Sep, 2012
If you receive periodic performance reviews from your current employer–or have received them in the past from former employers–are you using them as a job search tool? If not, you might be missing a good bet! Of course, if all the reviews do is say you are "9 out of 10" or "4 out of 5" or something else equally vague, they might not be very useful. However, in the cases where your manager has actually provided thoughtful...
Should I Include Salary Requirements on My Cover Letter, Resume, or Application When Asked?
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Sep, 2012
I recently found myself baffled. Yes, baffled. I placed an ad with a prominent, industry-related newsletter seeking a few new, talented, certified resume writers to add to our team. One of the requirements of the application submission included submitting a few samples of previous work the writers had completed—and also a request that they submit their fee requirements. Of all the submissions we received, only one cand...
