  Apply This Dating Technique to Your Job Search
by Bernie Frazier - Jul, 2015
Whether I’m speaking before audiences or working with clients, I always use analogies. I find they really help to make my points relatable. I’ve shared one with audiences that really seems to resonate about the importance of displaying confidence when searching for a job that I want to share with you. Now men, I’ve learned that I can’t always use you as the target in my analogy because I’ve gotten responses like, “Yeahh...
  Are Business Cards Still a Relevant Networking Tool?
by Rowe Leathers - Jul, 2015
A recent conversation with a colleague left me wondering if using business cards for networking is becoming obsolete. With the growing use of social media, is the business card no longer effective? Worse, does it make one appear dated and – eek! – very “90s”? To some, the use of business cards is no longer relevant. However, it can’t be argued that within a business setting, they make exchanging contact information seamless...
  Cracking the Code on Interview Questions
by Bernie Frazier - Jul, 2015
Several years ago, I interviewed someone for an Executive Administrative Assistant position. Because the previous Assistant left the company after 20 years due to harassment from a peer, I knew the next person coming through the door would have to be strong enough to stand up to the “Bully” to get her to back down. After qualifying her credentials by reviewing her resume and in the phone interview, I invited her to meet with...
  Don’t Quit Your Job!
by Bernie Frazier - Jul, 2015
Having worked for six different companies before branching out into my own business full-time, it seems crazy for me to tell others not to quit their job, but I’m doing it anyway. Why? Because most people quit too soon. No matter where you work, you will always encounter people, processes, systems, etc. that you will want to change. The problem is too many people allow this frustration to grow from a “mole hill to...
  Emotional Anorexia: Are You Starving Yourself While Striving Towards Your Career Goals?
by Mindy Thomas - Jul, 2015
I don’t know whether you agree, but I think there is always a cost to leveraging your career in the workplace. I’m talking about the emotional, physical, spiritual, or just plain psychological toll that we pay when we push to achieve our career goals and delay gratification in other areas of our lives. The answer to whether you are starving yourself on any these levels lies deep within you. You and I both know that, in many...
  How to Get an Employee Referral
by Jean Cummings - Jul, 2015
OK, in my previous blog post I noted that employee referrals are the #1 source of hire in corporate America. This statistic comes out of CareerXroads Source of Hire Study for 2014. That means leveraging employee referrals is better than depending on recruiters to find your a job, applying to jobs on big job boards, or using specialty services like Execunet or Netshare. Everyone knows that “networking” has always been the be...
  How to Keep Your Job Search Confidential
by Heather Krasna - Jul, 2015
As a career coach, I get this question often: how do I look for a new job without my current boss finding out? Here are some tips: 1. Lock down your LinkedIn profile. If you are connected to any of your co-workers or your boss, and are also aggressively updating your LinkedIn profile, someone might notice. To ensure your updates aren’t being broadcast to the universe, fix your privacy settings. Click on the tiny icon of you...
  LinkedIn as a Career Motivator
by Rowe Leathers - Jul, 2015
There is no bigger career motivator than the fear that comes from seeing your friends and colleagues move forward in their career when you are feeling stagnant. A new title in a LinkedIn profile is evidence that colleagues in your circle are progressing forward in their careers, and that realization can leave you questioning your own career journey. Rather than letting fear make you second guess your career decisions, allow th...
  Passive Candidates: Highly Perishable – Handle with Care
by Sandra M. Smith - Jul, 2015
When hiring new talent, it is important for hiring managers to understand whether the candidates they are pursuing are active or passive candidates. To distinguish between the two, an active candidate is any candidate who is already active in the job marketplace – this candidate is enthusiastically pursuing new jobs and is highly engaged in his or her search. A passive candidate, on the other hand, is one that is not actively...
  Survey Shows Project Managers Are Stretched to the Brink
by Alexandra Levit - Jul, 2015
New Workfront research shows project managers are so slammed that they are unable to focus on the most important aspects of their work. According to Workfront’s new Project Management Survey, conducted in late 2014 with 384 North American PMs, project managers are being inundated with too much work, lack of visibility into the work being done, and the use of disconnected tools to do the work. As a result, they are left with...
