Managing Emotions During Career Change and Job Search, Part Two


Half the battle in successfully managing your emotions during a job search or career change process is in recognizing and naming what you're feeling.  Most of us could barely brainstorm a dozen or so emotions, yet many, many more exist.

Resurrecting the Perfect Resume, Part One


Is your resume dead?  Don't be so quick to say, "No way!"  Of the hundreds of resumes I've seen written by job seekers of all backgrounds and educational levels, easily 95% qualify to be labelled as dead-but-not-yet-buried.  A dead resume lacks a clear structure or chronology, does not present or quantify achievements, fails to offer a "big picture" of what you would bring to the employer and is impersonal rather than expressive.

Resurrecting the Perfect Resume, Part Two


Are you in denial about the lifelessness of your resume?  If you are reasonably qualified for the type of work you seek, yet your resume is consistently failing to win you interviews, then you need to face the reality that your beloved document is dead.  Try these professional resume writing techniques to resurrect your resume and your job search today: Problem #3:    Resume Is Blind In your eagerness to cut your job search work load have you reduced your objective statement to something grandiose and vague, something that you hope speaks to every employer but which, in fact, communicates to none?  A resume with no focus is blind; without a clear focus in your resume an employer cannot perceive what you're offering them; without a concisely stated vision in your resume an employer cannot grasp the big picture of how you fit into their organization.

Career Job Satisfaction - Get Off the Treadmill - Exit Your Rat Race!


Get Off the Treadmill - Exit Your Rat Race!We can all get in a rut from time to time. Who hasn't had a moment in their lives where you've asked yourself the question: "Why am I doing this?" Whether it's who you've become, the business you are in, your career, relationships, where you live or all of the above - sometimes you realise you're just not where you want to be - and you're not sure how you got there! It sure feels like your own version of a rat race though.

Networking is the Key to Star Performance in Everything You Do.

Networking Mistakes and How You Can Avoid Them
