  Do I have to use LinkedIn in my job search?
by Stacey Lane - Nov, 2015
No. You don’t have to use LinkedIn – nor do you have to have a resume or do any networking. But would you ever attempt to be in a serious job search without a great resume and tapping into your professional network? Probably not. So why, in 2015, would you attempt a job search without leveraging LinkedIn? Here are some interesting stats about how 10,000 professionals who recently changed jobs did it. But back to using L...
  How Can You Guarantee That You Get An Interview?
by Stacey Lane - Nov, 2015
Oh, how I love this question. When people tell me that they’ve never had an interview when they didn’t get an offer, I ask only one question: “How long ago was your last job search?” Why? Because the whole hiring process isn’t quite as straightforward as you might have experienced it in the past. Even seasoned, confident job-seekers are getting thrown off their game and not getting offers after one, two or even three se...
  How long will my job search take?
by Stacey Lane - Nov, 2015
When I get asked by my clients how long their job search will be, I give them my general rule: “It will take longer than you think it should, even when the job market is humming along.” Your timeline isn’t necessarily in sync with hiring timelines, nor can you predict when the “right fit” job will come along. You may even base your time estimate on how long it took you back in 2009 when you were last looking. Throw those old...
  The Iceberg Illusion and Why Career Comparison Sucks
by Stacey Lane - Nov, 2015
I know many professionals find that comparing themselves – their performance, their results, and their career trajectory – to others’ helps keep them sharp. They use it as a gauge of how well they’re doing or where they want to be. I’m not a fan of comparison, even though I catch myself doing it on a regular basis. Comparison erodes self-esteem (who’s “better?”) and it disconnects you from your sense of self (full of “shou...
  Another Sign The Job Market Is Improving
by Stacey Lane - Sep, 2015
Another cool thing about the improving job market? The focus on employee engagement and retention. I happen to think I know a thing or two about how to engage and retain the best employees. Why? Because they’re the ones who seek out a career coach to help them with their careers. (Pause for a moment and think about it…) I’m not a recruiting expert, nor an employee development guru, but what I’ve learned through my...
  Frequently Asked Career Decisions Questions And Answers
by Stacey Lane - Sep, 2015
My clients ask great questions. And sometimes I find the perfect article or resource that says exactly what I want to say. So here are three of my frequently asked questions, and spot-on answers from my colleagues: How do I know if I’m making the right career decision? Whether you’re wondering about quitting a job without having another one, turning down a perfectly good job offer because it doesn’t “feel right,” or...
  Try On The Hiring Manager’s Hat
by Stacey Lane - Sep, 2015
In talking with a couple of hiring managers this week, we got on the topic of marketing materials. I heard the good, the bad and the ugly. The good? A cover letter from an under-qualified candidate that landed him an interview. You see, he’d done his homework and realized that his background in construction operations could benefit a creative services operations team. Smart. The bad? The candidate with less than...
  Begin The Mentoring Process By Knowing Yourself
by Stacey Lane - Jun, 2015
We know from ecology that a tree planted in a clearing of an old forest will be stronger than one planted in an open field. This is because the roots of the new tree are able to follow the pathways created by former trees and embed themselves more deeply. Over time, the roots of trees graft themselves together forming a system underground. The older trees help the younger ones mature and become stronger. The same principle hol...
  Rejection And Why It Stings So Much
by Stacey Lane - Jun, 2015
“We’re moving forward with another candidate.” “It was really great to meet you, but we’ve found someone who has more direct-to-consumer experience.” “You’re just not a cultural fit for our team.” “At this point, we won’t be extending a job offer to you.” Actual rejection quotes from this week. Clearly, it was Rejection Week and I missed the official notice. Three clients got rejected for jobs they really...
  3 Reasons Why Reinvention Is So Darn Hard
by Stacey Lane - Apr, 2015
Maybe it’s because the job market has improved. Or they’re just tired of feeling so unsatisfied. Or that it’s spring. Or my clients have known for a while that they’re mismatched with their current career. Whatever the reason, reinvention is on their minds. When I surveyed my list about what they’d like to hear about, Reinvention was the number one webinar topic they said they’d like to see. Let me tell you a little bit mor...
