The date has come and gone, so what now? What should contractors have in place, and what should they be working on? What is OFCCP doing now, and what might we see on the horizon? Let’s explore these and many other important questions....
EEO-1 Report and Voluntary Disclosure
by Sandra Zeigler, Esq. - Jun, 2014
On February 14, 2010, Mercury News reported that Google, Apple, Yahoo, Oracle and Applied Materials had successfully convinced the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) not to release race and gender data from their EEO-1 report under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) because releasing such data would cause "commercial harm." CNN made a similar FOIA request on August 18, 2011 for EEO-1 data on 17 technology companies that refused...
5 Ways to Start Off a Productive Morning
by Jessica Stasiw - Jun, 2014
Before you dive into your daily office gossip, your regular coffee break at around 9:30, and before you click on your favorite Buzzfeed quiz there are a couple of things to do first. It’s a common misconception you need to follow routine to be successful. For most people a routine will dull their work and will push them towards a burnout much quicker. Instead, I prefer getting through the stress points first, and easing into t...
5 questions to ask to determine if your network is effective
by Julie Walraven - Jun, 2014
We speak much about networking these days with some confusion about what defines networking. Though I do attend one networking group every month – my Christian Business Leaders breakfast – I don’t think running to networking events is the solution or what I mean by networking. Though I am a proponent of using social media for networking, I don’t think just signing up for all the social media you can find is what I mean by netw...
Should You Include Hobbies on Your Resume?
by Louise Fletcher - Jun, 2014
I often tell people that resume writing is an art, not a science. This means that there are often questions with no definite answers and ‘should I include hobbies on my resume?’ is one of them. The truth is that including hobbies on your resume will almost never hurt you, and sometimes may help you. I say ‘almost never’ because there are a few situations in which including hobbies might damage your chance of an interv...

Regardless of whether you’re a business or financial Controller, your job deals with profits and losses, the balance sheet, financial operations processes, cost-saving measures, and financial systems. The Controller must demonstrate that he/she is at the top of his/her game to keep the business running soundly and position the company to remain solvent in the future. When you’re in the market for a new Controller position,...
How to Survive a Professional Panic Attack
by Michelle Kerrigan - Jun, 2014
Yesterday, I received an SOS message from a former colleague. She is in considerable distress: Her company is failing; the staff is shrinking; the survivors are exhausted; and she’s dying to jump ship. She is panicking, and needs my help. Her note began with her kicking herself for not doing anything sooner, and spiraled into many regrets about the past. She berated herself for pigeonholing herself into a specific career,...
Top 15 Misconceptions about Resumes Writing
by Julie Walraven - Jun, 2014
During my many resume writing and career marketing presentations to college classes, state job center groups, and AmeriCorps members, inevitably questions come up about resume strategies and assumptions about how resumes should be written. I always begin my presentations by saying that what I tell them will perhaps sound contradictory to what they have read in books or even learned in classes but as a Certified Master Resum...
Volunteers Wanted, Now!
by Rowe Leathers - Jun, 2014
Whenever I suggest volunteering as a way to gain experience in a new field, the typical response is, “Where?” To which I reply, “Everywhere!” Are you a history buff? Why not feed your passion by volunteering at museums or historical landmarks? If you are located in a region deeply rooted in history, and prefer a little more fun, consider taking part in reenactments. Historical reenactments are about as close as you will...
Top 10 Executive Resume Mistakes
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Jun, 2014
Over the past several weeks, I’ve reviewed hundreds of executive resumes and I’ve seen the same resume mistakes over and over again. Executive resumes must be personally branded, persuasive, and impactful. They must also be laser-focused on what you have accomplished—and not just what you do. Here are the top ten resume mistakes I see on most executive resumes: Focusing on “Do” I get it; it’s hard to write about yourself...
