  • On the Job Hunt, ‘Rejected’ Is Not ‘Ejected’

    As a writer, I don’t make it a point to talk about my life because it’s not all about me. However, I’ve noticed a trend in recruiting and hiring today that strikes a chord with me: a high level of discouragement among job seekers. I often hear this pain from my college students (i.e., millennials) – this fear that there is nothing out there, that they are not talented enough, that … Read more here...

  • The Differences Between Your Resume and Your LinkedIn Profile (Part 1)

    As I tell job seekers in my Advanced LinkedIn Workshop, your LinkedIn profile is not your resume. It’s important for me to say this, because many of these job seekers’ LinkedIn profiles resemble their resumes very closely. I can spot a copy-and-paste job a mile away. In further installments of this series, we’ll examine other differences between your resume and your LinkedIn profile, but today we’...

  • The Difference Between a ‘Job’ and a ‘Passion’ – and How to Find Your Passion

    There are three general approaches to work: having a job, having a career, and having a passion. I presume that most of us are looking for passions that can also equate to well-paying careers/jobs. Does finding your passion have to mean finding a million-dollar job? Not necessarily. Your nightmare job could be another person’s passion, and vice versa. Finding your passion is … Read more here:: Rec...

  • Tough Times: 7 Freelance Works to Survive

    By Ellen Summerhills It’s no surprise now that the economy is dwindling.

  • Are Your Adlerian Needs Being Met at Work?

    While Alfred Adler is most widely known for his birth-order theories, his work was founded on the basic belief that we all are searching for a sense of belonging and significance. Family dynamics aside, there is no place where these conscious or unconscious forces are as prevalent as in your place of employment. As you progress in your career within a certain organization, those feelings, at times...

  • Managing the Future of Your Career: Why Retirement Is Harder Than Ever

    We are job-search campaign managers, which means we frequently work with senior leaders who are experts in wearing their public masks of confidence. But often, beneath those veneers is a profound despair. There are two variations of this despair: “My college roommate was able to retire at 64. I can’t afford to retire. I feel like such a failure. What did I do wrong?” “I am looking for employment b...

  • How to Use Content to Build Your Personal Brand

    We often talk a lot about content in the marketing world. Broadly defined, “content” means creating and sharing relevant information. It can range from business-related articles and blog posts to videos and podcasts. Content can paint a picture of a company, explain what it sells, create engagement, and do so much more. Many companies also use content to build their brands. Engaging content can gi...

  • Why Confidence Is the Most Important Quality a Candidate Can Have

    In my experience, there’s one quality that separates job seekers who are successful in their searches from those who flounder. It’s not the college they went to, the degree they hold, or how smart they are. It’s not a particular certification or a certain amount of experience. The thing that makes all the difference is confidence in their own abilities. I’m not talking about being completely unrea...
