  Apply This Dating Technique to Your Job Search
by Bernie Frazier - Jul, 2015
Whether I’m speaking before audiences or working with clients, I always use analogies. I find they really help to make my points relatable. I’ve shared one with audiences that really seems to resonate about the importance of displaying confidence when searching for a job that I want to share with you. Now men, I’ve learned that I can’t always use you as the target in my analogy because I’ve gotten responses like, “Yeahh...
 
  Are Business Cards Still a Relevant Networking Tool?
by Rowe Leathers - Jul, 2015
A recent conversation with a colleague left me wondering if using business cards for networking is becoming obsolete. With the growing use of social media, is the business card no longer effective? Worse, does it make one appear dated and – eek! – very “90s”? To some, the use of business cards is no longer relevant. However, it can’t be argued that within a business setting, they make exchanging contact information seamless...
 
  How to Get an Employee Referral
by Jean Cummings - Jul, 2015
OK, in my previous blog post I noted that employee referrals are the #1 source of hire in corporate America. This statistic comes out of CareerXroads Source of Hire Study for 2014. That means leveraging employee referrals is better than depending on recruiters to find your a job, applying to jobs on big job boards, or using specialty services like Execunet or Netshare. Everyone knows that “networking” has always been the be...
 
  How to Keep Your Job Search Confidential
by Heather Krasna - Jul, 2015
As a career coach, I get this question often: how do I look for a new job without my current boss finding out? Here are some tips: 1. Lock down your LinkedIn profile. If you are connected to any of your co-workers or your boss, and are also aggressively updating your LinkedIn profile, someone might notice. To ensure your updates aren’t being broadcast to the universe, fix your privacy settings. Click on the tiny icon of you...
 
  LinkedIn as a Career Motivator
by Rowe Leathers - Jul, 2015
There is no bigger career motivator than the fear that comes from seeing your friends and colleagues move forward in their career when you are feeling stagnant. A new title in a LinkedIn profile is evidence that colleagues in your circle are progressing forward in their careers, and that realization can leave you questioning your own career journey. Rather than letting fear make you second guess your career decisions, allow th...
 
  The Job Search Money Trap
by Bernie Frazier - Jul, 2015
Earlier in my career, I took a job because it allowed me to start shifting my career in another direction. I wasn’t in love with it but knew it was a good move for me. About 1.5 years into the role, I took a chance and expressed an interest in doing something else within my company. While the results didn’t come immediately, one day my boss approached me about taking on a different type of assignment. I had minimal amounts...
 
  The Power of Referrals
by Linda Dobogai - Jul, 2015
Studies consistently show that insider referrals far outpace online applications in helping candidates secure interviews and jobs. This outcome relates heavily to credibility. It is assumed that an inside referral is made by an employee who is willing to risk their reputation by recommending you. An online applicant with no connections to the business is a complete unknown. This, of course, is where the hard work associated...
 
  An active professional network is like insurance
by Sherri Edwards - Jul, 2015
In an ever-changing economic market, or riding the wave through industry changes, you just never know when you might need to rely on your professional network to help bail you out of a rough patch. Maintaining a professional network is like having car insurance – it’s a pretty big risk to drive without it. Your network is your safety net. And like insurance, it requires an investment that can’t lapse. Without it, the costs can...
 
  Why Going Solo Is A Silly Job Search Strategy (and What To Do Instead!)
by Michelle Dumas - Jul, 2015
It’s no secret that most people view looking for work as one of life’s necessary evils. Can you relate? Most of us have had to do it at some point, but few of us have ever enjoyed the process. Finding a job is often a job in itself. It is time consuming, frustrating at times, sometimes exciting, and just as quickly can turn depressing. In order to succeed you need to put your best foot forward and make full use all th...
 
  Being active in communities can help your career to thrive
by Beverly Jones - Jun, 2015
When I meet new clients, it's sometimes easy to spot the ones who're enjoying resilient careers. Whether they are solopreneurs creating their own thing, or professionals making their way through large organizations, people with thriving work lives tend to share some of the same characteristics, like a positive attitude and an ability to listen. As I chat further with clients, one factor I try to gauge is whether they consc...
