Executive Job Hunting? You'll Need More Than a Resume
by Laura Smith-Proulx - May, 2011
If you’re an executive planning your next career move, it might surprise you to learn that you’ll be judged by more than just your resume during your job search.

by Hallie Crawford - May, 2011
I’ve been writing about this Wall Street Journal article, written by Dilbert, creator Scott Adams, How to Get a Real Education, for the past few weeks because it’s rich with good career advice. The last excerpt that I really liked is “Find the action.” In my senior year of college I asked my adviser how I should pursue my goal of being a banker. He told me to figure out where the most innovation in banking was happening and...
Invaluable Resources for Job Search Success
by Heather Mundell - May, 2011
Embarking on a job search is a lot like heading out on a backpacking trip. Sure, you could show up at the trailhead with only a liter of water, a granola bar and an indomitable spirit. But come the afternoon, after the biting flies have found you and your granola bar is a distant memory, your energy starts to flag. By nightfall, as the cold sets in and you realize you're lost, you know it's time to turn back. Just like a ba...
MAKE THAT NET-WORK
by Wendy Adams - May, 2011
The old adage of its not what you know, but who you know will never go out of style. We see it daily represented in almost anything publically displayed in the media. Now that media is currently most strongly held in the hands of the people, there is no shortage of proof that power is grown by the more people you know; the greater the access you have to these people and by the diversity of people you know. We are expanding...

As a child in Jamaica I grew up in a time when coming to America was the ultimate dream. People from all over the world coveted the American lifestyle with its manicured lawns, beautiful homes, and happy healthy children playing in the yard or riding their bikes in the neighborhood.

by Alexandra Levit - May, 2011
I admire creativity a a great deal, especially when there are only so many ways to provide the same career advice. So when Operation Freedom War vet and sporting goods entrepreneur John Durfee e-mailed me his tips for how surviving a job search is like surviving war, I was intrigued. John and I corresponded for a few weeks, and here are some of his suggestions: Applying for jobs is like going on patrol. It's repetitive,...

I have been reading Martin Yate since I was a job seeker about to be fresh out of college, and he has been one of my major sources of inspiration over the last few years. Fortunately for us, Martin's got a new Knock Em Dead book (this one is called Secrets and Strategies from the Insiders), and when I asked him if he could share some of the book's most important wisdom with you guys, here's what he had to say: Take control...

How to stand out on your resume
by Miriam Salpeter - May, 2011

The problem is that everyone applying for the job you seek probably has a similar list of “stuff.” What makes you stand out? Why are you special – why do YOU deserve to win an interview and the job?
