The Perfect Job Search Process

Fri, 28 Mar 2014 20:17:32 +0000

I think the fear of standing out keeps a lot of people from pursuing opportunities that they know are *perfect* for them. It’s scary to go after something that you really want, especially if it means having to take a risk–stand out–in the process. In an ideal world, the job search process would be just [...]

How to Quit Your Job

Wed, 16 Oct 2013 23:43:24 +0000

Maybe it’s because the job market is getting better, or simply because people are more frustrated with their work situations. Or maybe it’s because they are tired of doing more work for the same amount of money. I don’t know – but what I’ve seen is a lot more poor judgment being exercised when it [...]

Is Your LinkedIn Summary Stuffed or Human?

Tue, 01 Oct 2013 23:54:29 +0000

Your LinkedIn summary is 2000 characters of opportunity (or chocolately deliciousness, if you will) Why? Because you get to create your summary – nothing is filled in for you – so you can tell your career story in an authentic, interesting way.

Successful LinkedIn Headlines (and some basics for you to improve yours)

Wed, 18 Sep 2013 19:41:46 +0000

Let’s start with your headline in LinkedIn.  I started this blog writing about the summary section because I thought Headlines were self-explanatory.  Step back.  Regroup.  I can’t overlook Headlines, in all good conscience.  They are super important when it comes to branding and positioning.  So I’m writing all about headlines with the promise that the [...]

What’s wrong with the job market?

Wed, 11 Sep 2013 20:25:04 +0000

Sometimes hiring decisions are based on a complex mix of intangibles – which you are never going to figure out. Here are four observations about the candidate/hiring equation and why it’s out of whack...

Resumes versus LinkedIn Profiles

Tue, 27 Aug 2013 20:33:20 +0000

LinkedIn allows you to change your profile as your career evolves. We’re conditioned to just update our resumes when we have a need. Resumes are static, fixed in time. The cool thing is that LinkedIn profiles can morph as you do and instanteously, your profile is updated and fresh.

Why I finally changed my LinkedIn photo (and why you should too)

Mon, 19 Aug 2013 22:03:00 +0000

I want to inspire and encourage them to not get caught up in the belief that their LinkedIn profile needs to look like everyone else’s. I hate watching professionals with amazing work histories and backgrounds, get paralyzed over their LinkedIn profile.

Go Ahead And Ask About Salary

Wed, 14 Aug 2013 20:29:00 +0000

Is it a breach of etiquette to ask about salary? Probably to some. Norms and behavior standards evolve based on lots of different factors. Don’t get caught up in an old-school practice that might not serve you. Being direct and upfront isn’t vulgar when done respectfully. It’s smart and illustrates and understanding of the hiring and salary negotiation process.

Advice That This Career Coach Can’t Give

Wed, 07 Aug 2013 00:05:21 +0000

Stacey Lane, Career Coach speaks to the advice that she never wants to give. For example, "How long will it take me to find a job?" Candid Answer: It’s probably going to take longer than you’d like. And longer than you think it should.

Why Everyone Should Have A Job They Hate

Mon, 22 Jul 2013 21:42:01 +0000

Sometimes we have to be forced into growing and getting outside of our comfort zones – kicking, screaming and throwing internal temper tantrums every step of the way.
