  Social Networking and Job Search
by Beth Colley - Apr, 2010
I have referenced Linkedin and methods on how to use social networking for your job search. I’d like to take some time to emphasize how important utilizing these tools are to your job search. Recently I invited some recruiters to sit down with job seekers as part of a job club that I lead in the Annapolis, MD area. There was a small group of us and we were very fortunate to be able to speak candidly about what they look for i...
  Know Yourself!
by Harry Urschel - Apr, 2010
In networking, job interviews, and in your career...self awareness is critical to success. When people don’t really know their strengths and weaknesses, they often can’t answer questions well, sell themselves effectively, or emphasize their key qualities. In order to help someone help you when job networking, you must know what you are looking for and be able to articulate it well. When you are interviewing for a positio...
  Don’t Be A Stealth Job Hunter!
by Harry Urschel - Apr, 2010
Are you trying to find a new job without letting anyone know you’re unemployed? Many people try, very few succeed. Especially in today’s job market, it is extremely difficult to get a new position without extensive networking! That word seems to scare many people. In their minds it conjures up images of glad-handing Multi-Level-Marketing salespeople who wants to show their “plan” with the “perfect” opportunity for you witho...
  Make Nurturing Your Network a Daily Habit
by Andy Robinson - Apr, 2010
All too often I find that my coaching clients, faced with an impending job change -- voluntary or involuntary -- realize very quickly that their contact network is "stale" and rather shallow. It is MUCH easier to maintain and nourish your network on an ongoing basis rather than play "catch-up" when you find yourself in need of help from others. Your network of business, professional and personal contacts is the most valuabl...

  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...

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...
