“The Shark Tank” And Your Job Interview!
by Harry Urschel - Jan, 2010
I began watching “The Shark Tank” on ABC last year and it quickly became one of my favorite TV shows. It’s fascinating, and instructional, to watch people pitch their business ideas to the potential investors in the hopes of gaining venture capital to get their business off the ground or expanding more rapidly.

Stumped About Why You Didn’t Get Hired? Here’s the Back Story
by Dawn Lennon - Jan, 2010
Myth: The job candidate who flat out “nails” the interview gets the job. Truth: The decision about who gets the job is, well, complicated. For all the years that I was a senior manager at a Fortune 500, every time I didn’t select a candidate who thought they had the “right stuff,” I was questioned. Actually grilled! Filling job vacancies isn’t as simple as having an opening, interviewing candidates, and picking one. I...
Sell What You Have
by Mary Jeanne Vincent - Jan, 2010
A recent Networking Roundtable for job seekers held at my office included a mix of people. There were those who kept bumping into the issue of “over qualified”, and felt that age was definitely an issue that was prolonging their job search.

Some examples are: http://dannycoxdidit.com/ http://pamelaslim.com/ http://chrisguillebeau.com/ Do a Google search on each of these people and their URL will be on the first page. Let’s set something straight. You ...
Being Nice Does Matter in Finding Your Dream Job
by Kris Plantrich - Jan, 2010
This week was the kick off of the 9th season of American Idol. Every year I say I am not going to watch it, but somehow the show finds its way on to the screen of my television. I tell myself, just the first night… to get a feel for what this season may hold. I admit that I watched the whole show and towards the end, when there were only a few contestants left, a man entered the room for his very long awaited audition and ...
