  Have You Considered Working a Temp Job?
by Joe Turner - Nov, 2010
If you’ve thought before about working a temp job, here’s some further ammo for considering it. Today the US unemployment rate rose to 9.8%, the highest this country has experienced since June 1983. That’s 15.1 million Americans now out of work. According to the US Labor Department, another 263,000 jobs were lost last month, higher than expected. Additionally, if those who were already laid off and have had to settle fo...
 
  Watch Out! Great Careers Can Creep Up on You
by Dawn Lennon - Nov, 2010
Where we start isn’t always where we finish. At least that’s the case with many careers. It’s crazy to think that when we’re in high school we’d have a clear idea about what we want to do for a lifetime. Nevertheless, we go on to technical school or college choosing a trade or a major which declares, “This is my future.” The business world is a big place. There are tens of thousands of career paths in as many businesses....
 
  A LinkedIn Profile That Works!
by Harry Urschel - Nov, 2010
As I’ve said many times before, LinkedIn is a game changer when it comes to an effective job search in today’s online world. There has never been a resource that made it as easy to find the critical information you need when you’re looking for a new job… Companies, Contacts, Interview Prep information, Comparative Job Histories, and venues to discuss topics and challenges related to any job, field, or industry. It’s incredible...
 
  Being “Assertive” in Job Interviews
by Harry Urschel - Nov, 2010
I received a note from someone that said: “I was told I was not assertive enough in an interview I just had. How do you do that?” Good question, and one that I think affects a number of job seekers. How do you express assertiveness without being over-bearing or offensive? And what does being “assertive” really mean? One nice result of this encounter, is that the employer gave an honest critique that most people are n...
 
  Dealing with “The Jerk”
by Harry Urschel - Nov, 2010
Someone in one of my job search classes had a terrible experience at a recent interview and wasn’t sure how she should have responded. The interviewer/hiring manager was rude, confrontational, aggressive, and belittling. Essentially… he was a Jerk! It’s pretty rare that it happens… but sometimes it does. What should you do if you are confronted with that kind of situation, and does it necessarily mean the potential oppo...
 
  I Got a Counter-Offer! Woo-Hoo???
by Harry Urschel - Nov, 2010
Congratulations… you got a new job offer that you like! Then, when you went back to give notice to your current employer they said: “Hey wait! We don’t want to lose you, we’ll beat your new offer!” Great news… right? Maybe… but probably not! More money always sounds nice… but here are some things to consider before accepting that counter-offer and staying at your current company… Why were you willing to inte...

AOL Jobs recently spoke with Dr. Randall Hanson, founder of Quintessential Careers, one of the oldest and most comprehensive career development sites on the Web, for advice on the best way to resign from a job.

  10 Reasons Saying “No” Can Help Your Career
by Dawn Lennon - Nov, 2010
Sounds counter-intuitive, doesn’t it? After all, our careers will grow, we’re told, when we say “yes” to: -A new project or team leadership -A lateral move or promotion -Domestic or global relocation -Management’s requests When you’ve waited a long time for an opportunity, it would seem absurd not to snap it up. Right? Take stock. It’s flattering when management turns to us and says, “We think you’re the rig...
 
  Failure Is Inevitable. Ready to Handle It? | Career Strife Repositioned
by Dawn Lennon - Nov, 2010
“Be careful,” we’re told as kids. “You don’t want to make a mess.” “Double check your answers,” we’re told in school. “You don’t want a bad grade.” “Better achieve your performance goals,” we’re told at work. “You don’t want to get a poor rating or low raise, be demoted or lose your job.” Failure seems to come with negative consequences. Really? Always? The fallacy of playing it safe So much is written abou...
