  What Millennials Want At Work - And Why It Matters
by Lindsey Pollak - May, 2016
We’ve all heard and read the millennial-bashing. Millennial employees want free food; they want unlimited vacation; they want to run the company two days after they arrive; they want to be coddled and given a trophy. If you’ve read my blog before, you know that I’m definitely not in the millennial-bashing camp. Why am I always so bullish on this generation? Because if you look past the stereotypes, you quickly see that mill...
 
  Your Top Priority In The Interview: Hint - It's not getting the offer
by Randy Block - May, 2016
Success is measured by your results. You’ve had this ingrained in you:. It follows that if you didn’t get an offer after your interview, you failed. Your self-esteem takes a hit and maybe even depression sets in. “Nobody wants me.” You make all about you. You all have heard about how much a “bad hire” costs the company. Well it costs you as well. Your zeal to get the offer by overselling yourself with the “right answe...
 
  A Tech Career Like a Straightaway or a Rotary - which is better?
by Jean Cummings - May, 2016
If your career is a car, are you driving down a straight road? Or, do you picture yourself going around a rotary, seeing a number of exits, and then selecting one? In other words, is your career path more like a straightaway or a rotary? This is an important question to understand as you go about your personal branding, executive resume writing, and career management. Let's imagine you are a VP of IT. Did you get there by s...
 
  Technical Resumes: Five Steps to a Better Resume
by Robin Schlinger - May, 2016
Many technical resumes suffer because engineers, developers, researchers, and other technical job applicants have trouble communicating what they do. Many of them are more at home drawing a diagram than writing; and many are used to communicating with their peers at a level where a hiring manager or recruiter is simply lost. Still, the hiring managers and recruiters are the ones who will ultimately examine a resume and decide...
 
  10 Surefire Ways To Blow An Interview
by Randy Block - May, 2016
Interviews: They’re all about pressing the flesh or running for office, or a first date. You are talking to a complete stranger. Sweat comes out of glands you didn’t know you had. Relax: It’s probably easier to just blow them off. If you want to know how to “blow” an interview, be sure to take any or all of the following actions: » Don’t prepare. Your intention to be spontaneous is important. Let them talk about thei...
 
  Job Search: What's Your ROI Message?
by Georgia Adamson - May, 2016
No employer is going to hire you because you’re a good person–likable, presentable, etc. Not even if you really need a job, sad to say. You’ll have to do better than that if you want to land the new job you’re after. What you need to consider is why the prospective employer should care, why they would think you could be the answer they’re looking for. That’s it, pure and simple. Of course, it’s really not quite that simple....
 
  Interview Questions You Should Always Be Prepared to Answer
by Debra Wheatman - May, 2016
Interview preparation is hard work. You need to practice your STAR (Situation, Task, Action, Result) responses. You have to vet out possible behavioral questions and craft compelling responses to them. You must ensure that your image reflects your professionalism—your shirt must be ironed, and your shoes must be polished! Be sure that you are focusing your efforts in the right area, by narrowing in on what the interviewer...
 
  Nature or Nurture: Can You Learn Entrepreneurial Skills?
by Alexandra Levit - May, 2016
You’ve probably heard that most businesses fail, but the reasons why are not always clear. Lack of managerial expertise may be one factor. After all, most inexperienced people who get jobs in large corporations aren’t put in charge right away. Rather, they may be given small responsibilities until they have sufficient business acumen to be trusted with larger ones. On the other hand, small-business owners are often overconfide...
 
  Time to Retire the "Elevator Speech" For Job Seekers
by Randy Block - May, 2016
Time to retire the term “elevator speech” from the job seekers lexicon. Does it really work for job seekers? Isn’t a “speech” about 30 or 40 minutes? Most elevators are very short rides here in California. So what is the standard definition? From Wikipedia: “An elevator speech, or elevator statement is a short summary used to quickly and simply defines a person, profession, product, service, organization or event...
 
  Ask Deb: Preparing Recent Grads For The Workforce
by Debra Wheatman - May, 2016
I recently interviewed four candidates for an entry-level position on my team. One thing that is absolutely clear at the end of this experience is that college career centers are giving their students bad, outdated advice! All four of these young people had objective statements on their resumes, and presented themselves in the same bland manner. They talked about their academic achievements, and how great they were, but they n...
