  Four Ways To Help Your Resume Pass The HR Screen-Out Phase
by Cathy Eng - Nov, 2010
In most cases, before your resume even gets to a hiring manager’s desk, it is passed through a screen-out process that is designed to immediately eliminate candidates who do not meet the minimum requirements. This makes it a lot more efficient for companies to fill positions, but I can also leave qualified candidates out in the cold if their resumes do not display those clearly defined requirements. If you are wondering w...

  Stupid Mistakes Job Hunters Make
by Thomas J. Denham - Nov, 2010

Insufficient Reflecting – STOP and really...

  Be Choosy About What You Want
by Mary Jeanne Vincent - Oct, 2010
Years ago, I worked in the hospitality industry hiring people for a wide variety of positions. Job seekers frequently approached me by saying, “I’ll take anything.” That was one of the biggest turnoffs. It wasn’t my responsibility to identify the right job for every person who walked through the door. It was their responsibility to figure that out before the interview conversation ever happened. There is the misconcep...

The two answers given most frequently: "Dress professionally" and "communicate what you want and what you have to offer." Since so many employers mentioned these two things, along with other valuable tips, it occ...
  Why finding a recruiter won't automatically end your job search
by Laura Smith-Proulx - Sep, 2010
I was recently asked by a prospective client if I "knew" any recruiters. Well, I do maintain strong relationships with recruiters in various fields, but there seemed to be a disconnect in the question. You see, finding a recruiter is only part of the effort you'll need to undertake in order to be successful. Recruiters find candidates, not jobs. Let me repeat that again - a recruiter will NOT set out to find you a job. T...
