As usual, I’m going to try to give some practical and helpful advice to give you some strategies on how to take advantage of this optimism. 1) Test the waters wi...

LinkedIn has been called “Facebook for grownups” and “the world’s biggest networking group.” It’s both of those -- and more. Used correctly, LinkedIn can be one of the most valuable weapons in your job-search arsenal. To get the latest and best tips, I interviewed Rob Mendez, an expert on LinkedIn and other social media, who helps job hunters via his CareerNetworkMinistry.com web site. Here’s what we talked about.....

Search For a Company Not a Job!
by John E. Long - Apr, 2010
How do most people approach a job search? Well is often goes like this... As human beings we are subject to emotional reactions and our career can often trigger these reactions. At any given time, we may become frustrated, angry, disillusioned, bored, burned out, etc. with either our employer, our role in the organization, or both. In the “heat” of the moment, we jump on the Internet and resolve to find a new job! We dust o...
Selling Yourself in a Tight Economy
by Mary Jeanne Vincent - Apr, 2010
There is no doubt that today’s job search environment is very competitive. There is a lot of talk about a “jobless” recovery which seems like an oxymoron to me. Regardless of the talk, companies are hiring. Yes, the pace is slow and the interview process longer. Nevertheless, several of my clients have received offers in the last few months. Things are looking up. Having said that, I attribute much of their success to a ...
Social Networking and Job Search
by Beth Colley - Apr, 2010

Especially in today’s job market, it is extremely difficult to get a new position without extensive networking! That word seems to scare many people.

Give a Clue and Get More Results
by Judi Perkins - Apr, 2010
You’re selling a product and the product is you, so much of what I teach involves advanced sales techniques as they apply to job hunting. That’s because job seekers are too “me” focused when the buyer, which is the hiring company, wants to know what’s in it for them.

Keep on When Life Gets Tough
by Julie Walraven - Apr, 2010
In 1992, we knew a home office was part of the plan when we bought this house. I met with clients upstairs while my husband built the office downstairs in the room off the driveway. Then I moved down to a convenient and well-equipped office that was always cold. In 2005, we had a wood fireplace installed in the living room and the office grew colder. I migrated upstairs, working with clients in various spaces. Our large fam...
