  The Sweet Sound of Striking the Right Chord: An Interview with Ricky Bell
by Dawn Lennon - Jul, 2011

To my surprise, I soon learned that those hands were equally talented on the neck of a guitar and that Ricky had connected two talents into one amazing career. DL: Ricky, do you consider yourself a computer guy who’s a musician or a musi...

by Joan Runnheim Olson - Jul, 2011

  If You’re Not Going to be Genuine, Don’t Bother
by Louise Fletcher - Jul, 2011
Not long ago, I was invited to join a brand new business social networking site. Because I like the person who sent the invite, I clicked ‘yes’ and signed up. But having looked around, I decided it was much too early stage to spend time on. For the last 3 days, I’ve received an email from the site founder. The first one thanked me for signing up and made reference to the fact I’m a resume writer. I thought that was a nice t...
 
  Why You Don’t Have to Explain Everything on your Resume

One of the most common mistakes people make when writing a resume is to try and explain everything. Every detail, every situation, every technology used, every job held no matter how short – everything. But this is a mistake. The job of your resume is not to tell the clearest story of what happened – it’s to show your experience in the best light. The Spotlight Analogy Imagine watching a play at the theater. At certain...

by Hallie Crawford - Jul, 2011
The WSJ's reporting on the unemployment rate for June and lower amount of jobs added last month: "Bad news for the U.S. economic recovery. New private-sector jobs barely outweighed government job losses, causing the unemployment rate to climb to 9.2 percent from 9.1 percent.

by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Jul, 2011
I read an article this week that stated the average job search is said to be a whopping 10 months! I guess that extended the last estimate I heard which was around 6-9 months. Seems that now more than ever patience is far more than a virtue—it is a must! As a job seeker, I encourage you to stay positive while on the hunt to avoid losing belief in your talents as a professional. Here are four great ways to do just that:...
 
  What Your Body Language Is Saying During the Interview
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Jul, 2011
First impressions mean everything when job seeking. Your resume makes the ultimate first impression since it introduces you and your skills to a prospective employer. If your resume makes the impression you hoped for, then you’ll be called in for an interview where you’ll now need to make your first in-person impression. What many job seekers don’t realize is that although providing the right answers is important, your ti...
 
  Why Writing Targeted Resumes Is More Critical Than You Think
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Jul, 2011
When applying for a job, you are immediately handed the responsibility of proving you’re the best candidate, which can be challenging if you can’t provide examples showing that this is indeed a fact.
