Why Didn’t I Get the Job Offer? 6 Interview Mistakes Executives Make
by Louise Garver - Oct, 2013
The resume did its job and you are called for an interview. After the interview you don’t hear back from the employer or recruiter. You are left wondering what happened. 1. Show up late for the interview. There are no excuses! You can imagine a recruiter or employer has heard them all, and they have. Allow more time than you think you will need and if you have to sit in the lobby for 30 minutes, count that as a bo...
Best Way to Have Outstanding References
by J.T. O'Donnell - Oct, 2013
Last week, I thought I had a phone stalker on my cell. I didn't recognize the number and the caller ID had a weird name. Finally, I picked up the phone. It turned out to be the head of HR for a company in NYC doing a reference check on an intern I had 5+ years ago. I was totally caught off-guard. I hadn't heard from this person in over two years, was given no warning I'd be contacted, and didn't even know what position he was...

by Valerie Sokolosky - Oct, 2013
“I had no idea that being your authentic self could make me as rich as I’ve become. If I had, I’d have done it a lot earlier.” -Oprah Winfrey Here are a few points I made when I was the guest Personal Brand Expert on KTXD-TV in Dallas, TX. 1. Have a story to tell. When was there a time that you used your brand strengths to reach a departmental goal or affect the bottom line of the company? Too often, we reach a goal and...
Two Useless Words Every Job Seeker Loves to Use on Their Resume
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Oct, 2013
I’m on a mission this week to attack ineffective words and phrases job seekers love to incorporate into their resumes. Watch out resumes … apparently I’m on the war path. =) Success and results—two words job seekers seem particularly partial to including in their resumes. My hypothesis is that candidates want to be perceived as successful or able to deliver results, and so they think that by using these words on their res...
Important Questions You Can Ask When You Are Interviewing For a New Job
by Michelle Dumas - Oct, 2013
“Interviewing”. Yes, we know. We feel your pain. No matter how much we try to tell ourselves otherwise, a job interview is usually not a good time, ranking somewhere below attending traffic school among things we look forward to. Sure, interviewing for a new job can be exciting, but it’s hardly ever fun (an example of how those two words don’t mean the same thing). Now, we’re not suggesting that a job interview should...

Leave My Job Now? Are You Crazy?
by Georgia Adamson - Oct, 2013
Here we are at the beginning of October, with the end-of-the-year holiday period not quite staring us in the face but close enough to inspire some thought about what’s next for us. If someone said to you now, “You should consider leaving your current job in the near future,” would your reaction be “Leave my job now? Are you crazy?!!!” Mind you, I’m not exactly advocating that you should leap into the unknown and chuck your...

Here is your checklist to know that you are ready, an expanded version of one of our previous posts about career fairs. Prepare mentally first. Career fairs can be mobbed and overwhelming. Fighting the crowds can be intimidating as well as the prospect of making an impression in the first...

At most colleges, that means that much of the needed information and training will come from the Career Services Office. Of course, each college is different. Some do a better job than others.
