A growing number of industry networks are online too. Consider Technol...
If only I’d done more networking, I’d be able to find a new job.”
“If only they’d stop bothering me with trivial meetings, I could finish this project.”
“If only I’d gotten that promotion, I wouldn’t hate this company.”
“If only I were younger, I bet they’d listen.”
One of the more self-destructive phrases used in discussing careers is &l...
The world of work is changing at an ever increasing pace. To succeed, we must embrace new ideas and technologies, and strengthen Questers traits such as adaptability and flexibility.
Adaptability and flexibility have meanings which are broadly the same but not identical. Adaptable indicates long-term changes; flexible more short-term alterations. One might adapt to the introduction of a new shift pattern, and be flexible enou...
Think summer is a slow time to find a new job? Think again!
Recruiters and hiring managers do not usually take summers off. Hiring managers are looking for top talent now. If they have any openings, they do not wait to hire. So, now is as good a time as any to look for your next position.
There’s less competition in the summer. Fewer people are job searching so you and your resume have a better chance of being seen...
At a recent breakfast meeting with HR professionals, as we waited with coffee in hand for the program to start, I asked the recruiters and hiring managers sitting at my table about their perspectives on cover letters. Here’s what I learned:

You do have a job search marketing campaign, don’t you? Even if you’re not actively job searching now, you should have a campaign either in mind or in the works. To paraphrase an old saying, “An ounce of job search preparation is worth more than a pound of after-the-fact damage control.”

I recently received this question via email:
How do I set up my resume and LinkedIn profile for the NEXT job I want? If I’m a “Manager,” I’m not that interested in jobs with the title “Manager” in them.

In my last post, I covered the reasons why a passive job search typically does not produce the desired or longer-term results. An effective job search begins with taking a controlled approach, which is very much the same as building a business. You need to know what you want to accomplish, who your target market is, what they need and if you can supply it (for the right price). Once you have established what you want, you can...
Fact: I used to despise networking.
A sense of dread would come over me.
I would do it, but I hated it.
