As a psychologist and career counselor, I have worked with thousands of people over the years who are choosing or changing careers, and who are wondering whether they would really like to be in a particular career. Based on this experience, I believe that most people who want to go into a career they think they’d like, do not really explore the questions they need to in order to be sure that it’s the right career for them....
  3 Keys to Identifying a Sales Achiever in a Hiring Interview
by Sander Marcus, Ph.D. - May, 2007
How can you identify the great salesperson in a job interview? Well, it’s not easy. First of all, true sales virtuosos are scarce, even though there are many good salespeople and sales is one of the most common and necessary types of jobs. Also, research shows that the job interview is notoriously unreliable as a predictor of job performance. And it’s even worse if you are interviewing salespeople. Because if there is one...
  7 Common Résumé Clichés To Avoid
by Sander Marcus, Ph.D. - May, 2007
Writing a résumé isn’t easy. To your reader this one piece of paper is you, and he or she is going to give it about 20 seconds of attention (often less). Unfortunately, there are résumé traditions that seem to make sense but that ought to be questioned in today’s tough job search world. One of those traditions is that certain words and phrases are considered basic necessities. They aren’t. There are many such clichés, but here...

Losing one's job is often one of the most traumatic events in any person's life, and can have an immediate and devastating impact on one's social, emotional, financial, and family life.

by Sander Marcus, Ph.D. - May, 2007
1. Recognize your motivational enemies in a job search. They are: constant rejection, constant failure, and lack of control. Don’t let them make you inactive and lacking in confidence. 2. Look forward, not backward: Every minute you spend thinking about your past job is a minute robbed from your future. And anyway, your previous employer is no longer paying you for thinking about them; you’re giving them free consulting tim...

by Sander Marcus, Ph.D. - May, 2007
Most of the experts say that the average person can expect to change careers (not just jobs) 3 to 5 times in their working life. The reasons?
