Your Rights in Wisconsin When Applying for Jobs with an Arrest & Conviction Record
by Randy Enochs - Nov, 2010
One very common problem for people with an arrest and conviction record(s) is the fear of being rejected for a job because of the stigma associated with such a record. What further complicates the matter is the ease of employers and the general public to conduct a search on the Consolidated Court Automation Programs (CCAP) to discover a person’s court history, both civil and criminal.

“You Like Me, Right Now,You Like Me”
by Suzanne Bates - Nov, 2010
One of my best friends recently sent an urgent text. She said something like, “Award speech on Tuesday. 3 days to write a three minute speech. Help.” This is an accomplished woman - author, renowned expert in her field and a sought-after keynote speaker. She routinely gets invited to Washington to testify and lectures around the world. The issue was not eloquence. It was twofold. How to say it without bragging; and h...
#1 Piece of Resume Advice: Write For Your Audience
by Cathy Eng - Nov, 2010
Whether you are writing a book, article, thesis, letter, or a resume, the same basic rule applies: Write for your audience (in this case, recruiters, hiring managers and your future boss).

by Cathy Eng - Nov, 2010
I have written resumes for many clients who were not moving companies and some who weren’t even moving departments! They were simply asked to present an updated resume to apply for a higher-tiered position within their company. And what was even more surprising was that they felt blindsided at this request from management! If you are thinking of applying for a higher position in your company, be prepared to present a new,...

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....
