  Align Your Career for the Best Culture Fit
by Debra Wheatman - May, 2011
As a job seeker, it is important to look not only at the role you will be playing, but where you will be playing it. You don’t want to land in the wrong sandbox. The importance of a good cultural fit and positive office environment should not be treated as the step child. Accepting a job within an organization that is not aligned with your style can turn into a nightmare. (Think Cinderella’s coach turning back into a pumpki...
 
  Career lessons from a royal wedding
by Miriam Salpeter - May, 2011
Did you get up to watch the royal wedding? I did! I’m a royal watcher from way back. Unlike the last royal weddings I arose early to view, this time, I am thinking of the career lessons from the story. Everyone seems to be making a major point of how Catherine and William hold the burden of the whole country — the future of England and the monarchy — on their shoulders. Can you imagine a bigger job? These are the...
 
  Do You Really Want to Use THAT LinkedIn Photo?
by Laura Smith-Proulx - May, 2011
Some time ago, I ran across a LinkedIn picture of a job seeker who was holding a very specific political sign over her head. In bright letters. In shorts (and no, they did NOT become her). Curious about this phenomenon, I surveyed my fine resume-writing, coaching, and careers industry colleagues at Career Directors International on the subject of inappropriate LinkedIn photographs. As a result, I came away with a...
 
  How to Explain Being Fired
by Debra Wheatman - May, 2011
Dear Deb, Q. I was fired from my last job because of a conflict I had with the manager. He did something that I felt was unethical. When I found out, I went over his head and told his superior. He was able to twist the situation and next thing you know, I got the boot. I have decided not to take the company to court; but I was wondering what your thoughts are on how to best explain this during an interview. J.D, Houston...
 
  Take Responsibility For Your Career
by Deborah Brown-Volkman - May, 2011
Who do you fault if something goes wrong in your career? Yourself or someone around you? How about if no one is to fault, but someone is responsible? How about if the responsible person is you? Most people don’t like to take responsibility. First of all, it’s not fun. Second, responsibility forces you to look deep inside yourself to assess and reassess your life and career, which is also not fun. Finally, responsibility...
 
  The employer didn’t get back to me. What should I do?
by Wendy Enelow - May, 2011
It seems that 99% of the time, employers say they will get back to you within a certain time frame, and then they don’t. There are two possible reasons for this: 1. They are short-staffed and just can’t get all the decision-makers together to make a hiring decision, so they haven’t decided who to hire yet; or they are still checking people’s references and waiting to hear back from the references before a decision is made...
 
  Want That Executive Job? Don't Write Your Own Resume
by Laura Smith-Proulx - May, 2011
Here’s a common refrain that I’ve heard from budding C-level executives: “I wrote my own resume a few years back, but I can see that it’s just not working now. I can't get anyone to respond at the right level!" An overwhelming majority of aspiring and current executive job hunters (and I mean literally 80%+ of the people that I talk with) cannot position themselves properly in a resume, and here’s why: Buzzwords and pro...
 
  6 Social Media Mistakes to Avoid While Job Seeking
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - May, 2011
For many job seekers, the Internet presents two very different worlds. One consists of hanging out with friends via social networking, and the other focuses on the seriousness of a job search. Having the worlds collide could result in the playful social media environment posing problems for a job search since many employers conduct online research to determine candidate eligibility. This is why, if you’re looking for work...
 
  Having No College Degree Doesn’t Mean You’re Not a Qualified Candidate
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - May, 2011
Are you currently seeking a professional job but don’t have a college degree? If so, you are not alone. According to a recent study conducted by The Chronicle of Higher Education, only 27.5 percent of adults in the United States have a degree. This means there are a lot of people competing for professional jobs but lack the credentials some employers desire. But just because you don’t have a degree doesn’t mean you aren’...
 
  The Right Tools for the Job
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - May, 2011
Imagine for a minute, that you’re a contractor. And let’s say you’ve heard about a job that is going to pay handsomely. Only problem is, your cash flow is a bit “sluggish” right now, and you’ll need to obtain a few specialized tools before you can submit your bid; without those tools, you won’t even be considered for the contract. And you intuitively know that if you could just submit that bid, the contract would likely be...
