Earlier this week I delivered a presentation at a Twin-Cities based job transition group. My presentation was titled, "Your Two-Minute Pitch: The Keystone of Your Job Search." It's critically important to have a well-crafted, targeted two-minute pitch, aka your elevator pitch to use during your job search.

I’m a Recent Grad, I Never Worked Before
by Joshua Waldman - Apr, 2014
I remember the first job interview I had as a soon-to-be-minted MBA. It was with a financial investment firm in the suburbs of Boston. The first two interviews were fine, normal, followed the script. But the third and last interview didn’t. My interviewer wore a full beard, not common in the financial industry. And he looked at me, pushed my resume away and said, “What’s a job you took that’s not on this resume?” I to...
LinkedIn Groups; One of the Most Underutilized Features of LinkedIn
by Kathy Bornheimer - Apr, 2014
Millions of professionals all over the world are now on LinkedIn (or at least have an account). One of the best features of this dynamic, fluid venue is the Group feature. Too many LinkedIn users do not appreciate the power of LinkedIn groups in reaching the right people for the right reasons.

The Guide to Being Bold at Work for the Fabulously Average
by Lisa Rangel - Apr, 2014
The reality is most managers and employees are not subject matter experts, leaders in their field, self-appointed visionaries, innovators or game changers. Not everyone can be or even wants to be. We need all kinds of people in the work force, including the fabulously average. These hard-working people go to work reliably, fix problems, anticipate needs to their clients and fellow co-workers, and receive positive performan...

Time To Retire the “Elevator Speech” For Job Seekers
by Teena Rose - Apr, 2014
Time to retire the term “elevator speech” from the job seekers lexicon Does it really work for job seekers? Isn’t a “speech” about 30 or 40 minutes? Most elevators are very short rides here in California. So what is the standard definition? From Wikipedia “An elevator speech, or elevator statement is a short summary used to quickly and simply defines a person, profession, product, service, organization or event an...

Yes, You Need to Pick a LinkedIn Industry
by Joshua Waldman - Apr, 2014
I understand. Your industry isn’t on the list of available industries on LinkedIn. Mine isn’t either. The problem is that this little tid-bit of data you’re leaving off makes it hard for your audience to figure out what you do. In fact, my eye often goes to a profile’s Industry before I decide to accept a connection request or reply to an InMail. The Industry provides the context needed for someone to relate to...
