by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Oct, 2010
On the one hand, the Internet is a wonderful place to get your name out as a highly qualified job candidate. On the other hand, there may be information floating around about you that you’d rather was not shared with everyone in the world. How can you determine what’s out there in cyberspace?

  Should you be worried about age discrimination?
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Oct, 2010
Almost every client I work with who’s above the age of 40 asks the same question at some point: Do I need to make myself look younger on my resume? The fear that they are being skipped over for younger candidates is clearly a widespread concern among today’s job seekers. While I certainly encourage those with 30 or more years of work experience to only include what’s most relevant on their resumes, this article in the Wal...

by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Oct, 2010
An article published earlier this month showed that more than half of recent graduates from college did not receive a job offer prior to graduation, regardless of their undergraduate major.

Here are some things to consider when makin...
 
  What NOT to Do in an Interview
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Oct, 2010
Last week I had lunch with a colleague who had recently hired someone for a part-time position for her office. My colleague was interested to observe the wide variety of people who applied for a low-paying, part-time position. She was even more intrigued by one candidate’s behavior during the interview. Apparently this candidate had called on her way to the interview to say she was en route. Based on her supposed whereab...
 
  You do what for a living?
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Oct, 2010
Some of you out there have nice, easily explainable jobs like “professor” or “salesman” or “consultant”. Others of you have job titles that people either totally don’t grasp or think are kind of odd. As a resume writer, I fall into the second category, with reactions to my vocation ranging from, “Wait, is that a euphemism for your being unemployed?” to “Why would anyone ever pay someone to write their resume?” Most people...

As we all know, hiring managers are receiving anywhere from dozens to hundreds of applications for most open positions these days. Given that atmosphere, this recruiter offered the following piece of advice: If you get an interview with a company, your resume has already convinced them that you could do the j...
 
  Use “Snapshots” Not Potshots to Wake Up “Problem Employees”
by Dawn Lennon - Oct, 2010
It’s kind of an eerie label—“problem employee.” With supervisors it usually means, “I have someone working for me who isn’t with the program.” Then what they often fail to admit is: “I don’t know what to do to turn him/her around.” So, what’s the problem? In most cases, the problem is around employee behavior—their approach, conduct, interpersonal relationships, and way of communicating. It’s that dreaded “soft stu...
