  How Can You Guarantee That You Get An Interview?
by Stacey Lane - Nov, 2015
Oh, how I love this question. When people tell me that they’ve never had an interview when they didn’t get an offer, I ask only one question: “How long ago was your last job search?” Why? Because the whole hiring process isn’t quite as straightforward as you might have experienced it in the past. Even seasoned, confident job-seekers are getting thrown off their game and not getting offers after one, two or even three se...
  How long will my job search take?
by Stacey Lane - Nov, 2015
When I get asked by my clients how long their job search will be, I give them my general rule: “It will take longer than you think it should, even when the job market is humming along.” Your timeline isn’t necessarily in sync with hiring timelines, nor can you predict when the “right fit” job will come along. You may even base your time estimate on how long it took you back in 2009 when you were last looking. Throw those old...
  The Iceberg Illusion and Why Career Comparison Sucks
by Stacey Lane - Nov, 2015
I know many professionals find that comparing themselves – their performance, their results, and their career trajectory – to others’ helps keep them sharp. They use it as a gauge of how well they’re doing or where they want to be. I’m not a fan of comparison, even though I catch myself doing it on a regular basis. Comparison erodes self-esteem (who’s “better?”) and it disconnects you from your sense of self (full of “shou...
  Why Do We Resist Change?
by Marshall Goldsmith - Nov, 2015
Because we’re deluded! We all delude ourselves about our achievements, our status, and our contributions. We Overestimate our contribution to a project; Have an elevated opinion of our professional skills and standing among our peers; Exaggerate our project’s impact on profitability by discounting real and hidden costs. Many of our delusions come from our association with success, not failure. We get positive reinforcem...
  4 Tips to Being More Hirable Every Executive Should Know
by Louise Garver - Nov, 2015
The executive job market has changed over the years. That’s a fact. Employers are extremely selective with their executive hires more so today than ever before. The number of qualified candidates searching for new positions still creates a highly competitive market. How can you present yourself to be more hirable and beat out your competition? Tip 1: Stand out with your resume. The old-fashioned resume format is dead. Be...
  Are Resumes Withering?
by Jacqui Barrett-Poindexter - Nov, 2015
While technology is an important part of the job search equation, it doesn't trump thought-work, introspection and proper targeting. Yes, totally ignoring technology can potentially be harmful, in that disregarding its value could equate to missed opportunities. However, overshadowing the process with a hyper-focus on technology's ability to catapult your results can be equally harmful. Why You Must Not "Forget Your Resu...
  Avoid These 3 Resume Mistakes
by Jacqui Barrett-Poindexter - Nov, 2015
According to, the definition for resume is "a summing up; summary;" and, "a brief written account of personal, educational and professional qualifications and experiences, as that prepared by an applicant for a job." With this somewhat broad definition in mind, job seekers often get consumed by understanding the details of what to do when building a career summary. However, the conundrum is that you're not su...
  Critical Knowledge Holders: Are You One?
by Georgia Adamson - Nov, 2015
Every now and then, we hear about the large number of employed people who are on the verge of retiring and the risk to their employers of having irreplaceable knowledge walk out the door with them. Yet it seems to me that not enough companies are taking positive steps to meet this challenge before it becomes an epidemic. It does occur to me that I might not know everything that’s going on “out there,” so I could easily be m...
  Entrepreneurs vs. Employees: You Can be Both!
by Georgia Adamson - Nov, 2015
Sometimes the concepts of entrepreneur and employee are described as two sides of a coin–that is, you can be one or the other, but not both. In other cases, they’re positioned as not so mutually exclusive. I tend to support the latter view, at least much of the time. What does that mean to you? For one thing, you might find that even a bit of entrepreneurial spirit gives you an edge over your competition. It sets you apart...
  Give, Give, Get in Life and Career!
by Caroline Dowd-Higgins - Nov, 2015
My life and career philosophy focuses on authentically giving to others. As the recipient of priceless wisdom and generosity from others throughout my life, I want to share ideas that will help you focus on paying-it-forward. When You Give – You Also Receive – Consider how you can give of your time, talent, or treasure to others. The more you give away, the more comes back to you in the karmic circle of life. Consider how y...
