  7 Strategies to Overcoming the Resume Black Hole
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Oct, 2010
We hear from job seekers every day who are sending out hundreds of resumes and job applications never to be heard from again. It’s hard to tell if it’s the resume that’s at fault or the company that’s not hiring, already hired, or just sitting in a stack of 500 others never to be found. So I’ve compiled a list of seven ways to overcome the resume black hole that so many resumes seem to go in to. MANAGE YOUR JOB SEARCH DON’T...
 
  An important question to ask your friends today – it could get you a job!
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Oct, 2010
I write often about the need to surround yourself with positive, supportive people during a stressful period of job transition. Connecting with family and friends regularly lifts your spirits and reminds your network to keep an eye out for you. It can also provide you with important insider information about the job market in your local community. I recently had lunch with a friend whose husband works for a Fortune 200 co...
 
  Are you too hard on yourself?
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Oct, 2010
Remember when you were a teenager, and you were convinced that everyone around you was staring at every single imperfection you possessed? Fortunately, as we get older we realize that most people really aren’t that concerned with what we’re doing. However, I often encounter job seekers who seem a little stuck in the mentality of “Everyone is looking at me!” Few things in life are absolutely perfect, and most people don’t...
 
  Avoiding Company-Specific Lingo on Your Resume
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Oct, 2010
I recently met a woman who had started a new job with a Fortune 50 company several months ago. While she enjoyed some aspects of her new position, she was having a very difficult time adjusting to the culture of her new company due to the other employees constantly using acronyms she didn’t understand. The situation is so bad that every day she writes down a list of terms that she doesn’t grasp and asks her assistant to expl...
 
  Great Strategies for Addressing Behavioral Interview Questions
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Oct, 2010
Chances are that you’ve encountered the term “behavioral interviewing” at some point during your job search. This is an increasingly popular interview format based on the belief that past behavior is the greatest predictor of future behavior. Typically interviewers ask questions like, “Tell me about a time when you had a conflict with a coworker, and how you chose to handle that situation.” During a behavioral interview,...
 
  Helping yourself (and your job search) while you help others
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Oct, 2010
Job seekers often complain of feeling like they’re anonymously sending their resumes off into a black hole—never to be acknowledged or contacted. In today’s automated world, it can often be difficult to know if your resume is ever even seen by a live human being. Everyone knows that having a contact on the inside of an organization can greatly improve your chances of their responding to your application. How do you cultiv...
 
  Is Improper Use of Social Networking Hurting Your Job Search?
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Oct, 2010
If you’re looking for a job in this tough employment market, having an online presence can definitely improve your chances of landing a position. Sites like LinkedIn and Twitter allow you to make a professional statement and provide additional information to complement your resume. However, understanding how to properly use these sites is essential to their helping you in your job search. Here are some things to avoid: In...
 
  Looking For Work? Have You Considered Part-Time?
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Oct, 2010
I wish I could quote some studies showing how quickly the job market is improving, but unfortunately, things are still tough out there. Many of the unemployed have held full-time, high-paying jobs their entire careers and are struggling to land their next position. If you find yourself in this spot, limiting your job search to only full-time openings may be severely limiting your opportunities. The fact is, many compani...
 
  Should you be worried about age discrimination?
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Oct, 2010
Almost every client I work with who’s above the age of 40 asks the same question at some point: Do I need to make myself look younger on my resume? The fear that they are being skipped over for younger candidates is clearly a widespread concern among today’s job seekers. While I certainly encourage those with 30 or more years of work experience to only include what’s most relevant on their resumes, this article in the Wal...
 
  What NOT to Do in an Interview
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Oct, 2010
Last week I had lunch with a colleague who had recently hired someone for a part-time position for her office. My colleague was interested to observe the wide variety of people who applied for a low-paying, part-time position. She was even more intrigued by one candidate’s behavior during the interview. Apparently this candidate had called on her way to the interview to say she was en route. Based on her supposed whereab...
