by Debra Wheatman - Mar, 2010
It is a well known fact using job boards exclusively as you conduct a job search will leave you confounded and frustrated. Sure you might be qualified for the positions for which you are applying – but posting your résumé online is like trying to find a needle in a haystack – a really, really big haystack. So what exactly is this thing called ‘the hidden job market’? The hidden job market consists of openings not directly a...
Networking For Your Career Success
by Mary Sherwood Sevinsky - Feb, 2010
Research done by the Career Center in 2009 has shown that 60 per cent of job openings in the U.S. are filled not through advertising and recruiter companies but through word-of-mouth or networking. And that is quite understandable: to hire someone via recommendation is both much safer for employers, as they have a reliable reference, and easier, as they save considerable effort in advertising the position and sorting through a...

Your Personal Brand, their Emotions Think about Steve Jobs. What emotions come to your head...I think: “innova...
How Do I Find Out If My Resume Really IS The Problem?
by Laura Smith-Proulx - Feb, 2010
Laura, I’m trying everything I know to get a call back for an interview, but it isn’t working. I’ve been spending a lot of time surfing job ads, and when I apply to something that seems perfect for me, I never get so much as a rejection letter. It’s getting to the point where I’m worn out from trying to figure out if there’s something wrong with my resume. Plus, I'm never sure what to do about it. Is it possible that...
Are You Worth The Risk? Your Life Is Your Business
by Dawn Lennon - Feb, 2010
Any idea about who has a stake in you? I mean a real money stake based on your risk-reward value. Seem like a weird question? When you’re the investment, you’re expected to deliver a return. That’s right. Every time we borrow or accept money from an outside source, we are their investment. So we have an obligation to reward the investor. Here’s how this works.

The Four Day Week: Lessons Learned From Taking Fridays Off
by Rebecca Ryan - Feb, 2010
In January 2010, we shrank our work week from five days to four, giving everyone Fridays off. The idea was born of economic necessity; Fridays off seemed like a way to give something back to our teammates in exchange for the salary sacrifices they were willing to make. Our teammates loved it! On Fridays they sleep late, have lunch with friends, start long weekends with their loved ones, and pursue their hobbies. It’s been a...
What Do Hiring Managers Want?
by Harry Urschel - Feb, 2010
As a recruiter, I was just talking to a client, a Director at a mid-size company, about a couple of positions he’s trying to fill and specifics of what he wants to see in a good candidate.
