Many people find it daunting to begin the process of searching for new employment. Maybe you don’t know where to begin. Maybe you haven’t looked for a new position in more than 15 years, or maybe you have just become complacent where you are and haven’t thought about looking in a really long time. Whatever your reasons for pursuing a new position, your success now hinges on establishing some guidelines and developing a plan. Y...
Four Ways to Get Unstuck in Your Job Search
by Kevin Donlin - Dec, 2009
If you've been job hunting for any length of time, you’ve probably run into roadblocks. Weeks go by with no job interviews. Employers don't call. And you start to feel...stuck. Where can you turn for new ideas to get “unstuck” in your job search? I suggest you try "funnel vision." As explained to me years ago by marketing master Jay Abraham, funnel vision is the opposite of tunnel vision. It’s a way of looking for ...
by Barbara Wulf, MS, CPCC - Dec, 2009
It is just days before yearend. For many, it’s been a stressful 4th quarter for our life/work portfolio. Financially and emotionally, the job forecast is looking dim and we await good news about the economy making a comeback. Our investments are still in the basement and many of us are lucky to be working or surviving on unemployment. One day you are working and the next day, you are being escorted to your car. There’s no...
Nine Tips for Mastering Email Overload for Busy Executives
by Andy Robinson - Dec, 2009
Before email, SENDERS shouldered the burden of mail. Writing, stamping, and mailing a letter was a lot of work. Email bludgeoned that system in no time. Now the RECEIVER shoulders the burden of filtering, reading and responding to the endless stream of emails we receive on a day-to-day basis. Taming email means training the senders to put the burden of quality back on themselves. What's the best way to train everyone ...
You Had Me...and Then You Totally Lost Me
by Louise Fletcher - Dec, 2009
I’m watching 60 Minutes and they have on a really moving piece about a small town in Ohio, and they interview this guy who’s probably in his late 40s/early 50s and he’s explaining how he used to have a great job managing a hundred people, but then his company shut down and he can’t find work. There’s a video of him as a senior executive a year ago, and then they show him now, and he’s not clean shaven and he looks older and ti...
Is Your Insanity Driving You Crazy?
by Kris Plantrich - Dec, 2009
Try Something New to Take the Insanity out of Your Job Search I’ve gone to the same mall area shopping for Christmas presents three times in the last couple of weeks. Each time I have gone, I come home less and less satisfied with the amount of purchases I made. I just can’t seem to find what I am looking for at the stores available in that location. With just a week left until Christmas and with more than a few presents le...
Match(.com) Your Way To A New Job!
by Jacqui Barrett-Poindexter - Dec, 2009
FIRST IMPRESSIONS MATTER First impressions matter in dating and job search. I know this all too well as I have moved through dozens of first-date impressions during the seven years following my divorce and before I remarried in 2008. My husband, Rob, and I met online via Match.com. Besides the first-impression story he wrote in his profile that resonated with my personal needs and priorities for a great mate and life-long ...
Sometimes A Job Badly Done Is The Job Description's Fault
by Gary Cohen - Dec, 2009
Don't blame the poor employee. Usually when employees fail to fulfill the expectations their job descriptions raise, their superiors work with them to improve their performance. If that fails, they are sent packing. Such firings--and all the hurt feelings, wasted time and tried patience that accompany them--aren't always avoidable, but leaders shouldn't overlook the part the job description can play. Sometimes it's the job ...
Are You Doing All You Can?
by Harry Urschel - Dec, 2009
Many people are struggling through a tough job search these days and it’s not likely to get dramatically easier very soon. So as the days, weeks, and months drag on without an offer in hand, I’ve got a tough question to ask you...be honest with yourself... Are you doing all you can? I teach an 8-week course in job transition skills. Each week everyone gives updates on what they did that week. However, as much as each of ...
It’s Been A While!
by Harry Urschel - Dec, 2009
I recently received an email from someone who’s been reading my blog and is looking for advice on his situation. He’s currently been out of work for nearly 3 years. Certainly his predicament isn’t unique, so I thought it would be helpful to discuss it here. His email stated (edited for brevity): "I had a question about something I didn't see addressed on your blog… A (Current) Employment Gap. I've managed to have a pr...
