It takes more than a well branded resume to land a great position
by Anne-Marie Ditta - Aug, 2011
You have a great resume, know and can speak about your professional brand, network regularly…but nothing’s happening. Could your smile – or lack of – be getting in the way? During my former career as an account executive I realized people needed to like me before they could sign an agreement with me. So I made a conscious decision to let them know me.

Do I Ever Think About You if We Aren’t Connected Online?
by Barbara Safani - Aug, 2011
My three closest friends don’t participate in any form of social or business networking. You’ll never find a business profile, status update, family photo, or even a poke from any of them on any online networking platform.

His tripod (if that’s what you call it) covered his body like some sort of shield. Clearly, there was somethin...
