  Being “Assertive” in Job Interviews
by Harry Urschel - Nov, 2010
I received a note from someone that said: “I was told I was not assertive enough in an interview I just had. How do you do that?” Good question, and one that I think affects a number of job seekers. How do you express assertiveness without being over-bearing or offensive? And what does being “assertive” really mean? One nice result of this encounter, is that the employer gave an honest critique that most people are n...

by Harry Urschel - Nov, 2010
As job seekers hear various job search tactics and strategies, they often think… “That doesn’t really apply to me. Those techniques are for different kinds of jobs.” Is that true?

While LinkedIn and other online resources are “must-haves” for an effective white-collar job search...
 
  Dealing with “The Jerk”
by Harry Urschel - Nov, 2010
Someone in one of my job search classes had a terrible experience at a recent interview and wasn’t sure how she should have responded. The interviewer/hiring manager was rude, confrontational, aggressive, and belittling. Essentially… he was a Jerk! It’s pretty rare that it happens… but sometimes it does. What should you do if you are confronted with that kind of situation, and does it necessarily mean the potential oppo...

  I Got a Counter-Offer! Woo-Hoo???
by Harry Urschel - Nov, 2010
Congratulations… you got a new job offer that you like! Then, when you went back to give notice to your current employer they said: “Hey wait! We don’t want to lose you, we’ll beat your new offer!” Great news… right? Maybe… but probably not!

  What’s an Employer Really Looking For in Your Resume?
by Teena Rose - Nov, 2010
Most job-seekers write their resumes with one thing in mind—themselves! They toot their own horn so loud the interviewer is blown away by the sound. The “I did this” and “I achieved that” approach is important, of course. The hiring manager wants to know what you’ve accomplished in your previous line of work and how you can benefit his or her company in the new position. Reading Between the Lines BUT—he or she is also lo...
 
  Your Elevator Speech: Keep It Simple Silly
by Harry Urschel - Nov, 2010
So often, when job seekers give their Elevator Speech at a networking event or when asked in a formal environment, they give an overly “slick” or a too detailed recitation. A key to success in networking with others, is for them to clearly understand what you do and what you are looking for. If you come across as if you’re trying to impress them too much, or if they don’t “get” what you do, you won’t get results. Furthermor...

  10 Reasons Saying “No” Can Help Your Career
by Dawn Lennon - Nov, 2010
Sounds counter-intuitive, doesn’t it? After all, our careers will grow, we’re told, when we say “yes” to: -A new project or team leadership -A lateral move or promotion -Domestic or global relocation -Management’s requests When you’ve waited a long time for an opportunity, it would seem absurd not to snap it up. Right? Take stock. It’s flattering when management turns to us and says, “We think you’re the rig...
