  •  Seven job search resolutions to help you be successful in 2018
    Here are some resolutions to help you with your job search in 2018.
  • Should you continue the search during the holiday season? You bet, and here’s why.
  • Whether you’re the interview candidate or the employer, determining cultural fit is a crucial part of the interview process
  • There’s one salary question you should never answer – or ask
  • Your job search wasn’t built in a day, and as with most things in life, success is the sum of many repeated efforts. Perhaps more than any other factor, persistence truly is the key to a successful search.
  • Enjoy our professional interview & networking tips and stay up to date on the latest Human Resources events.
  • Once everything is said and done, what should your next steps be?
  • Staying motivated during a job search is tough enough – but it’s even worse when summer months dry up your momentum
  • If you are sending in a resume, chances are good that the first person to see it won’t be a person at all; it will be an algorithm searching for key words and information.
  • In addition to finding people who can manage their time, employers are looking for: hard workers, good communicators, team players, leaders, and most of all, people who are smart!
  • To interview well, you want to be noticed, remembered, trusted and liked – and you want to create an impression of competence and expertise.
  • In all interviews –regardless of whether it’s for your dream job or not – your objective should be to get a job offer. In fact, you should do anything necessary – as long as it’s legally, ethically and morally appropriate – to get a job offer.
  • Gone are the days when it was typical to spend one’s entire career at one company. Professionals today seek constant learning and continual growth.
  • Thoroughly preparing for your interview is of the utmost importance – you are, essentially, building the foundation for success.
  • The bottom line of the whole equation is this: if your resume isn’t a stand-out, it’s quite likely to be passed over without a second glance.
  • A good job search isn’t just about clicking through postings online – to find a job that’s the right fit for you, a key ingredient in your search should be networking.
  • If you are a girl, live with a girl, work with a girl or have had any sort of fleeting contact with the female gender over the past few weeks, chances are you’ve heard about the Gilmore Girls revival. (And if you’re a guy or any other gender and you enjoy the series too – rock on.)
  • Most HR recruiters or hiring managers get an overwhelming response to job postings – stacks upon stacks of resumes to read through. When they are facing a seemingly unending pile of dozens – even hundreds – of applications to sift through, it’s important that yours stands out.
  • The main aim of a covering letter is to encourage recruiters to read your CV. However, it needs to do a lot more than say, 'here is my CV!'. In short, it is the biggest chance you have to sell yourself.
  • Are you branding yourself effectively for the job search?
