Are Employers Spying on You with Facebook?
by Joshua Waldman - Jul, 2012
Facebook’s privacy issues have come and gone in past months. With their recent release of the “groups” feature, we now have more control over who can see what. But is that enough? Or better yet, is technology the answer to a fundamentally human problem? For me, the issue is the use of Facebook in the job search. Probably the most controversial question I get is, “Can I use Facebook in my job search?” Certainly, when yo...
Are you in touch with your dream job regularly?
by Hallie Crawford - Jul, 2012
I was talking with my career coaching client, Chris, recently. He was telling me that for a long time over the years, he would get started on his dream career path, then stop again. He wants to be a comedian and momentum would be built up from him attending a comedy show or doing a stand up act in LA (this guy will be successful, he’s already had many great shows!) but he’d come home to Atlanta again and lose the drive to move...
Google, Google on the Wall: Who’s the Fairest One of All?
by Barbara Safani - Jul, 2012
The New York Times recently published an article exploring the value of creating an online career portfolio to showcase your work and offered several suggestions for leveraging online platforms to create and promote your professional brand. This strategy is a growing trend for people in job search as well as those proactively managing their careers. In a recent report on global hiring trends released by Career Directors In...

It feels great at the end of a workday to know you've made progress on a mounting to-do list, resolved a persistent problem, dealt with a difficult challenge, or accomplished an important objective. Yet, too often we get to the end of a day and haven't felt feelings of satisfaction, accomplishment, or progress at work, at least not as much as we'd like. Instead, frustration, bureaucracy, and unresponsiveness creep in to th...
LinkedIn Connections as a Career Management Tool
by Georgia Adamson - Jul, 2012
Unless you’re a LION (LinkedIn Open Networker) whose goal is to collect many thousands of connections in your network, you probably don’t spend a huge amount of time trying to increase your network. That’s either a good thing or a bad thing, depending on whom you ask. As a disclaimer, I should mention that I’m a conservative LinkedIn member. I currently have somewhere between 300 and 400 connections in my network–I don’t keep...
Losing a Job is Never Easy: Just Ask Ann Curry
by Barbara Safani - Jul, 2012
It pained me to watch Ann Curry’s goodbye on The Today Show today. Job loss isn’t easy for anyone; having to make the formal announcement on national television was obviously very difficult for her. She showed all the classic emotions of job loss…shock, grief, fear, denial, and perhaps a tinge of anger. Obviously Ann is in a much better place than many of us. She is being reassigned, she will still command a nice salary, and...
Does Your Job Search Outcome Matter To You?
by Bob Roth - Jun, 2012
With regard to your college years, what matters to you? This is a simple question that has a very important impact on each student’s likelihood of finding employment success. Like the rest of us, students cannot do everything. They have to select the things that matter most and do their best to make those things have positive outcomes. “If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the...
An Honest Letter to Student with Lessons about Real Life
by Joshua Waldman - Jun, 2012
When I graduated from Brown (2000), I was promised the world. I had just completed four years at one of the most expensive schools in the country. It stands to reason, I reasoned, that my career would be a reflection of the investment I had put into school. “The world is yours!” they seemed to say as they sent me my first financial aid bill. Boy was I wrong! After two layoffs in a row and then rebuilding myself from th...
Career Action Plan – What’s standing in your way?
by Louise Garver - Jun, 2012
At the end of May LinkedIn released a survey stating that of 6,580 professionals polled globally, 89% said they could not accomplish all the tasks on daily to-do lists. That’s huge! What’s amazing is with all the available information (articles, blogs, websites, etc.), helpful tools and technology, only a little over 10% of executives end the day having finished their task list. No wonder executives in job search mode are chal...
Stuck in a rut with your career ideas?
by Hallie Crawford - Jun, 2012
I’ve had many people come to me for career coaching who are looking for a specific kind of job, in a certain industry, and have little luck; whether it’s due to the tough economy or something else. I want people to pursue their dream job, and go for the job they really want! But sometimes it’s not going to happen for whatever reason. Don’t give up on the dream, but adjust it. If your industry was hit hard by the tough eco...
