The dictionary definition of philosophy is “a set of principles, beliefs and aims, underlying somebody's practice or conduct”. As such, a “business Philosophy” can be both a guide to help you grow a business, and in the ‘business of careers’ it can be a guide to help you decide what to do...and where to do it. So, define what you consider important, and you can be on your way to uncovering your “best fit” job opportunities....
The New Social Business Card: Poken Review
by Joshua Waldman - Jul, 2010
Imagine you are at a job fair. You have 10 copies of your resume, and 50 business cards. You are ready to network! However, about half way through the aisles you begin to run out of materials. So you’re more selective about who you give your information to. Then you begin to wonder what those companies are actually going to do with your card or resume…will they be tossed away or lost in the pile of hundreds of other ones fr...
What’s the Difference Between a Resume, CV and Bio?

People Problems Afoot? Get the Words Out! Supervisors As Challenged Communicators
by Dawn Lennon - Jul, 2010
“I’m speechless!” Ever said that? It usually pops out when we’re given unexpected praise or are caught unaware. Being “speechless” is a problem when we’re expected to say exactly the right thing when something important is on the line. Keep your foot in your shoe. We rightly expect our bosses to be good communicators. We need them to solve problems and motivate us by saying the right things at the right time. Being...
Jobseeker, Are You Interconnected & Plugged In?
by Julie Walraven - Jul, 2010
Today I spent the day in the hospital waiting while my husband, Bill, had outpatient surgery. Since I am not good at waiting, I packed plenty of work, books, my phone, and my laptop to keep me company while I waited. Interconnected I certainly wasn’t alone. The easily accessible wifi connected me with my e-mail and my Facebook status let my network know where I was and what was going on. I talked to clients via e-mail, t...
Keywords And Resumes: Don’t Miss The Point
by Judi Perkins - Jul, 2010
Keywords. The very phrase is enough to freak job seekers out. “Does my resume have enough?” “Is there any such thing as too many?” “Should I change it for every ad?” Conventional wisdom says a resounding YES for the last question.

by Stephanie Thomas, Ph.D. - Jul, 2010
Are you performing proactive statistical analyses of your employment decisions? If you don’t perform these analyses, is it because you are afraid of what those analyses might show? If so, your firm may suffer from Organizational OCD. You won’t find Organizational OCD in the DSM-IV, and it’s not an official medical diagnosis. But it’s a problem I see all too often. OCD is an anxiety disorder in which a person has an unreason...

by Kevin Donlin - Jul, 2010
You think it’s tough to find a job now? It’s been tougher. Like in the Great Depression of the 1930s, for example.

Would you be interested in learning two ways to find that worked back then -- and still work now? Here they are... 1) Appeal to the self-interest of the employer In the boo...
