  Facebook: The Untapped Job Board
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Sep, 2010
Most of what you hear about facebook while looking for a job involves keeping your information as private as possible from potential employers. While this is good advice, facebook can also be a valuable tool in your job search, as many smaller companies post their job ads on their facebook pages. If you are looking for work at a smaller local company, “liking” their facebook page can often be a great place to start. Open...
 
  Hate Your Job? Have a Plan Before You Quit
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Sep, 2010
I had lunch with a friend the other day who left her job earlier this year. She relayed to me how she had gotten fed up with a particular client, and so she decided to quit. She had about four months of living expenses saved up, so she figured she was good to go while she looked for another job. Four months later, she finds herself running out of money with no prospects in the pipeline. I was a little shocked to realize...
 
  How to save time during the online application process
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Sep, 2010
When we work with resume clients, we provide them with a plain text version of their finished resume. Regardless of whether you hire a professional or write your own resume, it is useful to have a plain text version on hand during your job application process. Most medium to large companies now use online application systems for their job openings. Some job seekers blow through these application systems, even writing thin...
 
  Presenting Your Climb to the Top
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Sep, 2010
Many executives share similar career paths. One of these paths involves entering a company at a job relevant to your degree or experience, and climbing your way up the corporate ladder until you’re eventually running the place. Another path involves working for many different companies for a few years at a time, while regularly being courted away with a higher salary or greater responsibilities. Both of these career paths s...
 
  Reminding Your Network That You’re Looking
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Sep, 2010
Recently I spoke with a woman who has been looking for work for some time. She devotes a significant amount of time each week to networking activities. She said something that stood out to me: “I wake up every day and think about being unemployed, but my contacts don’t think about me until I remind them”. Remind your contacts that you’re looking All too often, those who are looking for work feel embarrassed to repeatedly...
 
  Resumes for Every Generation
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Sep, 2010
This past week I attended a presentation about Baby Boomers, Generation X-ers, and Millennials learning to communicate and work well together in the professional world. The speaker provided great tips for understanding each generation and how to effectively use their strengths to the best advantage. While the presentation focused on helping everyone work well together, I couldn’t help but think about the ramifications of wha...
 
  Subtle Ways to Tell Your Story in Your Resume
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Sep, 2010
A frequent theme of our blogs is limiting your resume to information that’s truly relevant to the position for which you’re applying. You should feel free to leave off your high school job serving fast food or your college job working retail if you have years of subsequent work experience. Also, listing only the achievements from your previous jobs can actually omit an important component of your career: your personal story....
 
  The Best Time to Write a Resume
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Sep, 2010
Imagine for a moment that you’ve just heard the dreaded words, “We’re going to have to let you go.” A lot of people have heard this phrase over the last several years, and most have probably reacted with some degree of panic: How am I going to pay my bills? Where am I going to go? What am I going to do? Obviously, this frame of mind is not a great launching point for your next job. Writing an effective resume and cover...
 
  Using LinkedIn to Follow Potential Employers
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Sep, 2010
Many people think of LinkedIn as a tool to network with individuals. While LinkedIn is certainly useful for this purpose, it can also provide invaluable information about which companies you should target during your job search. Did you know that LinkedIn now allows you to follow all the activity related to a particular company? You do this by searching for the company on the site and clicking “Follow Company”. This st...
 
  Using Networking Groups to Your Advantage
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Sep, 2010
I know what you’re thinking: walking into a room full of strangers and announcing that you’re unemployed is as far from your comfort zone as you can get. Networking is awkward and makes you feel desperate. Do you really have to do it? The answer is no. Some people do find work without assertively networking. It just generally takes them a lot longer than those who are out actively saying, “I have a lot to offer and I ne...
