Getting In The Door: Networking with Informational Interviewing
by Julie Walraven - Apr, 2010
In the career and resume industry, career professionals have for years encouraged their clients to go for informational interviews. I have done my share of demonstrating to clients that they have a network, how to use it to find jobs and how to take the first step. I also do my own informational interviewing with both colleagues and clients. For the past few years, with clients, I periodically pick one to have lunch with an...
How To Research Your Way To a Networking Contact
by Miriam Salpeter - Mar, 2010
Is it socially acceptable to go up to random people on the street and invite them to coffee? Typically, no. You need to have a reason to meet, and it is up to you to come up with the reason before you do the inviting! Research is a key factor for successful networking. I like to tell my clients, “Don’t look for a job, look for a company.” Similarly, networkers should not first try to identify a list of people to meet, but...

Career Thought Leader Conference TakeAways After spending my week at the Career Thought Leaders Conference in Baltimore, I have so many take-aways and experiences that I could write posts for months. Several of my Twitter friends are anxious to find out what I learned. I am a very experienced resume writer with way more than 15 years of resume writing experience who has read, learned, and mastered the craft of resume wri...
Five Reasons Why Your Social Network Isn’t Working
by Tai Goodwin - Mar, 2010
“Are you on Facebook? What’s your Twitter handle? Send me the link to your LinkedIn profile.” Thousands of social networking accounts are created every month. And a large percentage of those new networkers become easily frustrated because it doesn’t seem to be working for them. It’s what I like to call the “Field of Dreams” approach: if you build a profile, thousands of people will find you, become your friend, buying your...
The ABC’s of Networking
by Anne Jabusch - Mar, 2010
Let’s face it- many of us feel awkward when it comes to networking. Walking into a crowded room alone can be an intimidating feeling for job seekers. By following these rules, networking can be as easy as the ABC’s- at least A-B-C-D-E-F! A: Appropriate Attire Make sure you are dressed for success. First impressions count, so put your best foot forward. Make sure you wear a current, clean and pressed outfit with no holes or...
Who is Talking About You Online?
by Joshua Waldman - Mar, 2010
Your Personal Brand is not a static thing. It’s not a thing at all. Perhaps, a brand is best described as a process. Think of a candle. At first, the candle produces no flame. Then you strike a match, and light the wick. Then, the candle will burn just as long as there is something to burn, oxygen, wick and wax. Remove any of these conditions and the light goes out. Keep the Fire of Your Brand Burning If you’ve inv...
From Twitter, LinkedIn & Facebook to Face-To-Face
by Harry Urschel - Mar, 2010
Not long ago, I received an email from someone asking: “I am in the midst of a horrible job hunt and have been for a while. Do you know of any online groups or support forums that can help me keep a schedule or talk about issues? I live in a small town and the local groups are more geared towards factory workers rather than professionals.” Good question! Most larger metropolitan areas have a number of networking groups,...
How LinkedIn’s Twitter Integration has Changed LinkedIn
by Joshua Waldman - Mar, 2010
I used to tell my clients to update their profiles and status on LinkedIn no more than two times a week. All of that has changed since LinkedIn’s integration with Twitter. Now, there is almost no limit to the number of times you should update your LinkedIn status, but there are still some things you will need to be careful about. Update Frequently, but LinkedIn is NOT Twitter In an earlier post, I wrote about the...
Focus First, Network Second
by Thomas J. Denham - Mar, 2010
The number one reason clients work with me is because they lack focus. A typical client may have been tossing around a few ideas in their head for a while, but are just not sure. Sometimes, they’ve been on the Internet seeing what’s out there with little or no luck. Without a sharply defined focus, this process quickly becomes scattered leaving them feeling confused, discouraged and at-risk of giving up any hope for change....
