You can learn a lot from books.

The solution to almost any problem can be found in a book somewhere, and that includes problems you may be having with your job search.

In fact, there's one book I've used since 1996…

Two Job Search Tips From a Sales Pro

Every job search is a sales campaign. You knew that, right?

Before getting hired for any job -- from accountant to zoologist -- you must first sell an employer on the idea of "buying" the services you offer as an employee. So, the more sales tricks you know, the shorter your next job search is likely to be.

With that in mind, I interviewed sales expert Jeffrey Gitomer, author of several best-sellers, including the "Little Red Book of Selling" and "Little Black Book of… Continue

Padded Executive Resumes: Are Hiring Corporations Getting What They Ask For?

We look up to our bosses. They've acquired a status many strive to achieve. Keeping up with high-achievers can be daunting and make a person feel somewhat inferior. So while we cluck away at completing those degrees and paying our dues at each career rung, discovering people aren't always who they say they are is a deep form of betrayal both to colleagues and companies alike. What if some who surpass you in line for career succession get there by false representation? Would you hold your… Continue

"Making Talent a Strategic Priority": Thoughts From the Fringe (Part 1)

The new McKinsey Quarterly came out today, and thus, it is a good day. Of particular interest is the article titled, "Making Talent A Strategic Priority", by Guthridge, Komm, and Lawson. For those of you who, much like me, have trouble digesting 3,000 any later than 2 hours post-coffee (or Green Tea for the caffeniatically-challenged), I'm going to translate and focus on those elements to… Continue

Analyzing Body Language

I'm a fan of the neo-necon. She's a psychotherapist who was raised as Democrat but swung to the centre-right. So, she's not voting for Obama.

The other day, she analyzed his body posture. I initially said that her comments were the product of pure bias but she challenged my opinion so I had a second look and think that it might be of interest to us as recruiters.…

More Ways to SCAMPER for a Job

Recently, I wrote about how to use three principles from the book,

"Thinkpak: A Brainstorming Card Deck," by Michael Michalko, to find work


To recap, Michalko's book helps you brainstorm solutions by forcing you to

look at problems in nine different ways, arranged around the mnemonic SCAMPER.

They are: Substitute; Combine; Adapt; Modify or Magnify; Put to other uses;

Eliminate; Reverse or Rearrange.

This time, I'll apply the last four… Continue

Winds of change

I ran across an article that was written a while ago but it caught my attention nonetheless. The article was titled “The Dirty Dozen Dangerous Online Job Search Assumptions” and it can be found on It is riddled with comments about the job boards’ inability to ensure that the companies that advertise thru them are real or that the job positions for that matter are real.

The article went on to recommend the use of an identity suppressed or cyber-safe resume. As I was… Continue

Network of Value?

I don’t know what’s more difficult; trying to help the unemployed IT pro’s out there find quality jobs that align well with their career direction or telling them that I can’t help them because they enlisted the help of there spouse, friend or neighbor, and have had their resume forwarded around to many of the potential jobs before I ever spoke with them.

I know that every self proclaimed job search expert will tell you that “networking” is the best way to get a job, but what they… Continue

"Big Picture" comment

Reading John Sumser's "big picture" post today reminded me of a show I saw last night on Nova - there was a segment about a young MIT roboticist Karl Iagnemma, who moonlights as an acclaimed fiction writer. Interesting, because it explored how one person could have two successful careers and how one career impacted the other. I would have posted this on John's wordpress site… Continue
