Online Resume Help - What Not to Include?
by Joshua Waldman - Jan, 2010
Hi Joshua, I’ve been working at a high-end boutique in SoHo for about a year now while still trying to apply for corporate jobs. Should I put this retail sales (fashion) position in my profile at all? I’ve been told my having a retail job on my resume might jeopardize my career path. I’m a Communications major (1992) and have worked in sales/marketing in the past. I’m working on towards a marketing certificate at NYU’s S...

Thou Shall Not Slander
by Alexandra Levit - Jan, 2010
In the last few months, I have spotted no fewer than three examples of one person in our social networking community slandering another person in our social networking community. I use the word slander, although technically it's more like libel because the articles are written by bloggers who are read by thousands. I am not going to tell you who they are because A) I will not stoop to their level and B) that would send even ...
Making A Fresh Start
by Nan S. Russell - Jan, 2010
"How could that be?" I muttered silently as I reread the message. This was not a person I wanted to encounter as I returned from a holiday vacation filled with family, friends, and fun. And yet, there he was on my calendar. My first meeting of the New Year was scheduled with my nemesis. I wish I could tell you it was a good meeting, but it wasn't. I got exactly the difficult, irritating, frustrating event I expected. Now ye...
How Many Pages Should My Résumé Be?
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Jan, 2010
This has to be one of the most common questions we hear as professional résumé writers. My answer to our clients is that one size does not fit all. Traditionally, résumés are one, two and three pages. (In some industries and countries more than three pages are acceptable, even expected!). While I don’t have a concrete answer I’ll provide you with the information you need to decide which length works best for you. What works...
Job Hunting in 2010, But Using Tactics From Back in 1999?
by Laura Smith-Proulx - Jan, 2010
Think you're ready for a New Year's job search? It's entirely possible that your methods aren't keeping pace with the times. Despite an abundance of great job-hunting advice, many candidates cling to outdated job search and resume writing practices that negatively impact their success. If you’ve continued to send resumes to “Dear Sir or Madam,” or updated the same old resume since 2000, you’ll find that these methods ha...
Search For Jobs By Identifying A Company
by Miriam Salpeter - Jan, 2010
One piece of advice I share with all of my clients – don’t look for a job, look for a company. If you are looking only specifically for a job (focusing only on job boards or posted listings), you are missing out on potential opportunities that are never advertised. Seeking an organization and broadening your target will help you be more competitive in this environment. Some recent research from the Michigan State University...
Leveraging Those Letters of Recommendation In a Job Search
by Laura Smith-Proulx - Jan, 2010
Letters of recommendation and other types of testimonials such as performance reviews are a great strategy for reinforcing your value proposition and of course, your personal brand. One of the ways you can put these letters to good use is to add some snippets from each letter to your resume. Why does this help? Well, a resume is written to tell your own story, presumably from YOUR point of view. While you can tell other...
Tutorial: Analyzing The Offer
by Debra Wheatman - Jan, 2010
When it comes to analyzing the job offer there are some key things that you should be reviewing to determine whether or not the position is right. Of course if you have made it this far, chances are you like the company and they like you. But how much do they really like you? Is it worthwhile to leave (if you are currently employed) or accept vs. continuing the search for something more suitable? Since you are not going to ...
Three Reasons Job Seekers Will Have to ‘Hit the Gym’ in 2010
by J.T. O'Donnell - Jan, 2010
We recently asked CAREEREALISM readers how long it’s going to take to find a job in 2010. The majority of you (45%) said you expect it to take 3-5 months to find work. But honestly, current economic indicators suggest it will be even longer. With 6 job seekers to every job opening and unemployment expected to hover near 10% for most of 2010, the harsh reality is only the truly committed job seekers will find work. Similar to l...
