The Power of the Words on Your Resume
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Mar, 2010
Words convey action, meaning, purpose, and results. What are the words that you placed on your resume saying about you? Are you using passive terms like ‘Responsible for...’ and ‘Duties included...’? These words communicate minimal value, input, and effort. Or are you using stronger action verbs that communicate results? Every week we evaluate 200+ resumes from job seekers like you. Every day we notice that at least 90...
Prepared for Randomness
by Gary Cohen - Mar, 2010
You work hard to become knowledgeable yet, admittedly, it is easier for some than for others. Even before you learn to speak a journey has begun. As a youth perhaps you begin to emulate some of your parent's beliefs regarding religion, politics, and culture. As time advances you move on to more complex ideas such as advanced equations, the teachings of early philosophers, and even how your system of government was designed to ...
Who is Talking About You Online?
by Joshua Waldman - Mar, 2010
Your Personal Brand is not a static thing. It’s not a thing at all. Perhaps, a brand is best described as a process. Think of a candle. At first, the candle produces no flame. Then you strike a match, and light the wick. Then, the candle will burn just as long as there is something to burn, oxygen, wick and wax. Remove any of these conditions and the light goes out. Keep the Fire of Your Brand Burning If you’ve inv...
Why Are You Going To College?
by Bob Roth - Mar, 2010

All I Need Is a Way To Get My Foot In The Door...
by Kris Plantrich - Mar, 2010
Recently I had a conversation with a job seeker which I have had similarly with many others in the past. The conversation begins with a recap of what actions they have taken in their job search and what thei r expectations are for working together. I often here something like, “I can handle the job search – I just need a resume to get me in the door, and I know I can talk my way into the job – I can talk my way into anything”....
How High-School Students are Better at Getting Jobs Than Most Professionals
by Joshua Waldman - Mar, 2010
Recently, I’ve been engaged with a local company doing some marketing consulting. They asked me to help them screen candidates for an open rec in the marketing department. This experience was both shocking and revealing. Now, I’m not new to interviews. In fact, I volunteer for my alumni association every year to screen high-school students interested in attending. It’s great practice and I’ve always been extremely impressed...
Your Resume Is Not a Tweet
by Jacqui Barrett-Poindexter - Mar, 2010
I read it, and I get it, and I buy-in to the 20-second ‘resume scan’ rule. Yet, I don’t FULLY buy in .

I love how GL Hoffman discusses the lean resume concept by playfully experimenting with the idea of a 6-word r...
Quality and Personal Excellence...NOT an Option!
by Andy Robinson - Mar, 2010
Quality and Personal Excellence are two key elements of your Personal Brand. The degree to which you fully embrace the importance of these elements is communicated to others on a continuous basis and is incorporated into others' vision of who you are -- i.e., the Personal Brand that you broadcast. Those who are fully aware of this fact can definitely undertake action to broadcast a Personal Brand that elevates their profession...
Customer Service as Horror Story - Give It The Boot
by Dawn Lennon - Mar, 2010
Ever wonder if really bad customer service is a conspiracy? Or is bad service just about poor leadership? I had to break my foot to find out. On a very hot summer morning, I was trying to teach a strong-willed colt of mine to walk nicely when being led. Instead he’d take two steps and rear. I would dodge his feet and try again. Well, my luck ran out. Up he went and down he came, digging his hoof into the outside of my le...
