How Many Pages Should My Résumé Be?
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Jan, 2010
This has to be one of the most common questions we hear as professional résumé writers. My answer to our clients is that one size does not fit all. Traditionally, résumés are one, two and three pages. (In some industries and countries more than three pages are acceptable, even expected!). While I don’t have a concrete answer I’ll provide you with the information you need to decide which length works best for you. What works...
Job Hunting in 2010, But Using Tactics From Back in 1999?
by Laura Smith-Proulx - Jan, 2010
Think you're ready for a New Year's job search? It's entirely possible that your methods aren't keeping pace with the times. Despite an abundance of great job-hunting advice, many candidates cling to outdated job search and resume writing practices that negatively impact their success. If you’ve continued to send resumes to “Dear Sir or Madam,” or updated the same old resume since 2000, you’ll find that these methods ha...
Search For Jobs By Identifying A Company
by Miriam Salpeter - Jan, 2010
One piece of advice I share with all of my clients – don’t look for a job, look for a company. If you are looking only specifically for a job (focusing only on job boards or posted listings), you are missing out on potential opportunities that are never advertised. Seeking an organization and broadening your target will help you be more competitive in this environment. Some recent research from the Michigan State University...
Leveraging Those Letters of Recommendation In a Job Search
by Laura Smith-Proulx - Jan, 2010
Letters of recommendation and other types of testimonials such as performance reviews are a great strategy for reinforcing your value proposition and of course, your personal brand. One of the ways you can put these letters to good use is to add some snippets from each letter to your resume. Why does this help? Well, a resume is written to tell your own story, presumably from YOUR point of view. While you can tell other...
Tutorial: Analyzing The Offer
by Debra Wheatman - Jan, 2010
When it comes to analyzing the job offer there are some key things that you should be reviewing to determine whether or not the position is right. Of course if you have made it this far, chances are you like the company and they like you. But how much do they really like you? Is it worthwhile to leave (if you are currently employed) or accept vs. continuing the search for something more suitable? Since you are not going to ...
Three Reasons Job Seekers Will Have to ‘Hit the Gym’ in 2010
by J.T. O'Donnell - Jan, 2010
We recently asked CAREEREALISM readers how long it’s going to take to find a job in 2010. The majority of you (45%) said you expect it to take 3-5 months to find work. But honestly, current economic indicators suggest it will be even longer. With 6 job seekers to every job opening and unemployment expected to hover near 10% for most of 2010, the harsh reality is only the truly committed job seekers will find work. Similar to l...

Remember that old definition of insanity: “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results”. Well it’s 2010, and there is no time like the present to push the boundaries of your comfort zone by infusing some creative energy into your daily routine. No need to make lofty New Year’s resolutions just because it seems like the thing to do in January. I’m suggesting that you reflect back upon 20...

Rules of Intimacy for Social Media
by Joshua Waldman - Jan, 2010
Social media can be a real time sink. There is no doubt. And with out a strategy, the danger of spending hours online and getting nothing accomplished is very real. So in response to this apparent need of saving people time online, 'Social Media Aggregation' services were invented. These services allow you to simply post your update once, and 40 of your social media sites get the update simultaneously. Seems like a good ...
Are Leaders “Born” or “Made?”
by Suzanne Bates - Jan, 2010
“Leaders are made, they are not born. They are made by hard effort, which is the price which all of us must pay to achieve any goal that is worthwhile.” – Vince Lombardi I’ve talked with a few clients recently about whether it was “worthwhile” to invest in their people. One CEO said he wouldn’t put ANY of his direct reports through further training. An SVP decided to postpone coaching because he couldn’t decide whether ...
