Job search like a salesperson to get a job that doesn’t exist – yet.

You’ve heard it countless times: With the economic recovery crawling along in the slow lane job seekers need to prepare for a longer than expected search and consider new and innovative ways to differentiate. But how do you prepare for a longer than expected search when you don’t have any sense of how long it’s going to take in the first place, and how can you be…See More

Sharpen Your Job Hunting Weapon – 7 Ways to Set Your Resume Apart

Sharpen your job hunting weapon before you plunge into the battlefield.

Aside from your wit and confidence and other important job hunting factors that you should possess, first and foremost, you need to give your frontline equipment some strict attention -- your resume. Your resume is simply your very first job hunting weapon. If you're not able to catch the eye of the boss, or at least HR personnel, then you're not going to have the chance regardless of your "pleasing personality" or your credentials.

LinkedIn Marketing Strategies to Increase Interviews

So you have a LinkedIn account with either a handful of colleagues or thousands of new “friends”. Focused on finding a new job, you’ve filled out each profile section, study your daily profile “views”, and connect with every received invitation to build a huge professional database. Now what? You need results, INTERviews. Building a virtual […]

Who do you need to know?

Scroll through your social network contact list with the following question in mind: "How many of these people really know me, know what I do, and know what I'm interested in?" It's a question that puts things in perspective - and it makes us realize that knowing lots of people doesn't always mean that these people really know you. It's not size of your network that counts, it's the quality of the relationships that matters most - and while knowing the right people helps, having the right people know you is what will open the most doors.

“Your Results Depend on Y.O.U.”

A job hunter’s focus is to create interviewing opportunities to quickly get back to work. My mission as a career coach is to recommend proactive, productive, and proven strategies to strengthen your candidacy and shorten your search time. Together, we fine tune your search activities to get you hired.

Many talented candidates automatically and indefinitely blast out resumes to employers and friends, and that’s where their energies end. When they fail to introduce and market themselves directly to hiring managers, how successful can their passive search be in selling their leadership skills? These candidates are baffled that interviews aren’t pouring in.

Are you one of these highly motivated, talented job seekers eager to find a great opportunity but experiencing lackluster results? Job hunting tasks can quickly become a frustrating energy drain when a job offer isn’t in sight. How do you generate great results? Who’s responsible for your getting you hired?

Career services is from Mars and students are from Venus

Getting students engaged is a big challenge that social networks, job boards, and most web-based student-career planning platforms haven't figured out. While it's the career networking silver-bullet for professionals, LinkedIn really isn't the right tool for students - many of whom don't use it in the first place - either because it's intimidating, too professional, or not designed for the type of networking that students really need or want to do.
We need to take a step back and recognize that while the world of work has changed dramatically, it's not the students who need to change - it's we who need to adapt. Students coming into today's workforce came into the world with cellphones in-hand, most don't know a world without Facebook and Twitter, and some are only a handful of years older than the original iPhone. They rarely bother to read instructions that come with anything electronic, and they certainly mastered every Facebook and Twitter feature in less time than it took you to read this post. So why would they want to be taught how to network and how to job search?

LinkedIn has 161 Million members - I was the 980,469th to sign up. What number were you?

Posted on June 20, 2012 at 12:00pm 0 Comments

LinkedIn is of my favourite things about the Internet. Period. I love what it does, I love the way it does it, and I really hope they don't mess it up like some other large social networks have recently. I'm not alone in my love for LinkedIn, and with 160 million users there's a lot of LinkedIn love going around, but while some users quantify their LinkedIn love with the number of connections they have, they're missing the point - it's not how many connections you have - it's quality of your…
