  Career Change: Is Now the Time?
by Georgia Adamson - Dec, 2014
Recently I published a post about midlife (or other) career change. Related to that is the situation that too many people face–being in a lousy (read: toxic) work situation that clearly isn’t going to get substantially better soon, if ever. During this year-end holiday period, you might benefit from carving out at least some time to consider your current work environment and decide whether it’s great from start to finish, s...
 
  Talent vs. Hard Work in Job Success
by Georgia Adamson - Nov, 2014
Companies theoretically want to hire high-performance employees, and if that describes you, you probably want to be hired by a company that will recognize and appreciate the value you bring to it. The trick is, how do companies determine ahead of time whether someone will be a high performer and how do you present yourself in that light to prospective employers? Is it all about talent or does hard work play a part? 5 Signs...
 
  Midlife Career Change–And Other Times, Too
by Georgia Adamson - Nov, 2014
The phrase “midlife career change” is nothing new. It’s something that’s been occurring for decades, maybe even centuries. However, there are some aspects these days that might make career change–midlife or otherwise–more challenging or at least challenging in different ways than in the past. Midlife Career Change–What’s Involved Two broad scenarios can apply to these situations. Either you’re considering a career change...
 
  Freelance Workforce vs. Direct Employee
by Georgia Adamson - Nov, 2014
If you’re currently working and aren’t a direct employee of a company, you would probably be part of the freelance workforce. That’s either a good thing or a bad thing, depending on several factors. Regardless, it points to a trend that has been growing over the years and could have relevance for you in the future. Is Freelancing the “New Normal” Employment? According to a study quoted by Recruiting Trends, freelancing i...
 
  Ho-Hum Resumes: Is Yours One of Them?
by Georgia Adamson - Nov, 2014
Sometimes it feels as if I’m playing a broken record on this, but experience shows that too many job seekers still don’t get the difference between a resume that showcases their unique value to employers and one that looks basically like a job description. The latter is what I’ve decided to call a ho-hum resume. In other words, the response to it is likely to be something along the lines of “who cares?” or “So…?” or even “O...
 
  Key Job Search Requirements You Might Not Think Of
by Georgia Adamson - Sep, 2014
You might know–or think you know–what’s important in conducting a successful job search. BUT…are you overlooking or unaware of job search trends that could sharply reduce your odds of success? A recent article by personal branding guru William Arruda, titled “6 Unspoken Requirements for Every Job Seeker” makes some telling points about this subject. I highly recommend reading the entire article, but I’m going to share the 6...
 
  Video Interviews: Challenges & Opportunities
by Georgia Adamson - Sep, 2014
A while ago I mentioned the idea of “canned” video interviews that some companies were instituting in their hiring process (make that screening process). Now I have a first-hand client story that points out some of the perils these interviews pose for job seekers. One of my clients was required to undergo a video-webcam interview that he expected would contain five questions. After just one question, he found he was una...
 
  Commodity Job Seeker: Make Sure This Isn’t You
by Georgia Adamson - Sep, 2014
One definition of commodity is: “A basic good used in commerce that is interchangeable with other commodities of the same type.” In the world of job search and career management, you do not want to be a commodity! Interchangeability is not your friend. Avoid the “Me Too” Syndrome If your resume and other career marketing/job search tools paint you as just another candidate like the scores whose resumes preceded yours...
 
  Behavioral Interviews: What Are They & How Do You Handle Them?
by Georgia Adamson - Sep, 2014
The term “behavioral interview” isn’t new. It’s been around since at least the 1990s, I believe. However, you might still not have heard it or you might have encountered a behavioral interview without knowing that’s what it was going to be. You can prepare just as well for a behavioral interview as for a “normal” interview (whatever that is!). However, you do need to understand what they involve in order to do the most effe...
 
  Your Career and the Search for Talent
by Georgia Adamson - Aug, 2014
You might have heard the term “talent wars” or something similar, which generally refers to companies competing for top talent even when a lot of job seekers are unemployed (and some have been for an extended period). If you’ve been looking for a new job or trying to move out/up from your current job for a while, this whole concept of a talent shortage might seem almost laughable–except that no job seeker I know is laughing...
