Losing a Job is Never Easy: Just Ask Ann Curry
by Barbara Safani - Jul, 2012
It pained me to watch Ann Curry’s goodbye on The Today Show today. Job loss isn’t easy for anyone; having to make the formal announcement on national television was obviously very difficult for her. She showed all the classic emotions of job loss…shock, grief, fear, denial, and perhaps a tinge of anger. Obviously Ann is in a much better place than many of us. She is being reassigned, she will still command a nice salary, and...
Does Your Job Search Outcome Matter To You?
by Bob Roth - Jun, 2012
With regard to your college years, what matters to you? This is a simple question that has a very important impact on each student’s likelihood of finding employment success. Like the rest of us, students cannot do everything. They have to select the things that matter most and do their best to make those things have positive outcomes. “If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the...
An Honest Letter to Student with Lessons about Real Life
by Joshua Waldman - Jun, 2012
When I graduated from Brown (2000), I was promised the world. I had just completed four years at one of the most expensive schools in the country. It stands to reason, I reasoned, that my career would be a reflection of the investment I had put into school. “The world is yours!” they seemed to say as they sent me my first financial aid bill. Boy was I wrong! After two layoffs in a row and then rebuilding myself from th...
Career Action Plan – What’s standing in your way?
by Louise Garver - Jun, 2012
At the end of May LinkedIn released a survey stating that of 6,580 professionals polled globally, 89% said they could not accomplish all the tasks on daily to-do lists. That’s huge! What’s amazing is with all the available information (articles, blogs, websites, etc.), helpful tools and technology, only a little over 10% of executives end the day having finished their task list. No wonder executives in job search mode are chal...

When Is The Best Time To Contact HR?
by Cathy Eng - Jun, 2012
Many job seekers focus solely on the “how” of contacting potential employers, but the “when” can be crucial to getting noticed as well. Contacting them when they are more likely to be alert and responsive (and not tired, hungry, or stressed) is all about timing. That includes planning the optimal time and day to contact HR (to either initiate contact, follow up after sending a resume, or follow up post-interview). Accordin...
Helping To Encourage a Career Identity in the Young
by Betty Cohen - Jun, 2012
As an experienced career practitioner who has partnered with many young to older adults to help them identify satisfying career goals, one complaint I often hear from clients is “Why can’t I be like most people, who know early on what they want to be when they grow up?” My response is “Actually, you’re not in the minority, in terms of career decision making. While some people do follow a career pathway they determined at a ve...

Influential references that sing your praises
by Louise Garver - Jun, 2012
At some point in the hiring process, a recruiter, hiring manager or human resources manager will be asking for references. Don’t be misled by the internet thinking that people will find everything they need to know about you online and not ask for references. This is still an important part of checking out any job- seeking executive. Recruiters expect to hear raving comments from a reference. Only use someone you can rely on t...
Can Executives be Perceived as “Too Smart”?
by Louise Garver - May, 2012
Executives rise to the top of an organization for a variety of reasons that include: thinking outside the box, vision, business savvy, strategies, and the intelligence to see the big picture and drill it down to deliverables. These are attributes that are expected of high-level leaders and work well for an executive no matter what corporate environment they may find themselves in.
