  Job Hopping on Resume Still a Red Flag?
by Jean Cummings - May, 2016
Traditionally – pre-2008 meltdown but definitely before the dot-com boom – having too many jobs in short period of time on a candidate's resume was clearly an issue for hiring authorities. They assumed the person would be a short-term employee and reduce the ROI from recruiting, onboarding, and training them. Recruiters believed that short stints at several companies showed that the applicant wasn't committed, got easily bo...

  Giving Notice: What do to When You Change Jobs
by Sharon Cohen - Mar, 2016
Do people still give notice to their employer? Do employers have an obligation to give notice prior to layoffs? If you give notice, is the employer required to pay you for the 2 weeks? Can they show you the door that day? As a career coach, I often hear stories from both employees and employers about what really happens in the workplace. Giving notice is topic which figures into many of these conversations. The...
 
  Turn A Job Loss Into An Opportunity
by Carole Kanchier - Dec, 2015
Two former clients, both managers, were laid off with three month’s severance pay. Though both had comparable skills, each approached job search differently, and the outcome of their searches reflects these differences. The initial approach of the first client was to make a brief appearance at professional meetings, tell others about his search, get leads, then leave. He followed up on leads, but after a flurry of interview...

If you’re getting ready for graduation, or if you’ve already graduated but you’re looking for a new job, you probably know you need to spend a lot of time networking. But, do you really know what networking is and what it’s not? During my teenage years, I was painfully shy, and I thought networking was a practice used only by the elite and powerful, a group I definitely did not feel part of. What I learned was the opp...

The days of lengthy cover letters and bulleted resumes are fading as employers ask job applicants to present their case in a modern and challenging way—by describing themselves and why they are a perfect fit for a job in 150 characters or less. Borrowing from the style of Twitter (which maxes out at 140 characters) and similar to a quick-and-to-the-point elevator pitch, this new request forces you to carefully select wor...

  15 Ways to Describe Yourself in an Interview
by Ken Sundheim - Mar, 2013
In just about every interview, the interviewer asks the question, “How would you describe yourself?” While this is something that should be anticipated and practiced, many job seekers overlook the importance of this question and fail to take the time to formulate the right answers. Moreover, when describing ourselves, we should approach our answers in an honest, candid manner. Even though some answers are laid out below,...
 
  Did You Lose Your Job? How To Get Your Mojo Back and Get Hired Quickly
by Michelle Dumas - Mar, 2013
Okay, let’s start this with one of the most obvious and truthful statements you’ll read in a “How to” piece: Getting fired sucks. Actually, losing your job in any fashion does.
