  Don't Let Short Term Thinking Derail Your Career
by Jean Cummings - Oct, 2014
Is this you? Do you find that the pressures of day-to-day work and home responsibilities keep you from doing what you need to do to get a good job fast in the future? I think that would describe the vast majority of us. It's human nature to pay attention to what is front of us rather than what's down the road. It's also human to choose pleasures in the present (completing current projects) over pleasures down the road (gett...
 
  24 Executive Recruiter Tips for Job Seekers
by Jean Cummings - Jun, 2014
At a recent ACPI-NE event, executive recruiters spoke on what they are looking for in job seekers. Attendees had a chance to ask questions afterwards. The opinions below are those of the particular recruiters at the roundtable and should not necessarily be viewed as cast in stone. But, overall, this snapshot of the mindset of these particular recruiters can be generalized to how most recruiters think. 1. Recruiters spend a l...
 
  What You Don't Know About Networking
by Jean Cummings - Feb, 2014
Everybody is always telling you that networking is how most people get jobs. But I can't think of anyone who hears that who doesn't feel a sinking sensation in their stomach and a sense of... I don't have a big enough network My network is out of date My network is in another industry I've moved and I don't know anyone in the area I hate to call people and ask them for a job I hate to call people out t...
 
  Will You Have a Portfolio Career?
by Jean Cummings - Dec, 2013
Everyone's head is spinning with the rapid pace of change in the employment market. Many more workers are contract workers or consultants, whether by necessity or choice. Many have a business on the side. Many have 2-4+ jobs they are juggling at any one time. Those who have more than one employment gig at a time have "portfolio careers." Why do they do it? 1. They can't find or don't want a full-time job that uses only the...
 
  Gallup Reports 70% US Workers Unengaged - Enter: Personal Branding
by Jean Cummings - Dec, 2013
Gallup's 2013 State of the American Workplace Report came out a few days ago and finds that between 1010 and 2012 only 30% of workers report being actively engaged at work, 50% are unengaged, and 20% are actively disengaged (working against the company's interest). The report estimates that this high number of unengaged workers costs the US up to $550B annually. These losses result from absenteeism, health and safety issues, q...
 
  Executive Resume Checklist

The reader can grasp a "reason to hire you" inside of 3 seconds. 2. The recruiter or hiring authority can get a sense of your career brand, that is, what makes you YOU professionally and distinguishes your from the competition. 3. The recruiter or hirin...
 
  Objectives on Resumes Are So Last Century - Really??
by Jean Cummings - Oct, 2013
People have been telling you for years now to drop the objective on your resume - it automatically dates you and makes your resume look old-fashioned. Well, that is undeniably true, if we're talking about the typical objective statement that reads like: Objective: Seeking a position as a Project Manager where I can contribute to the company and continue to upgrade my skills. Ditch it, if you've got one like it. But let...
 
  Recruiters Make 25% of Executive Hires in This Place: Are You There?
by Jean Cummings - May, 2013
Where is that? Yup, you guessed it, social media is where recruiters report sourcing 25% of executive hires. And those are 2012 figures! I'm ready to say it straight out: "If you're not spending a portion of your time every week on one of more of the following - LinkedIn, Twitter, blogs, youtube, Pinterest - you will be seriously handicapped in your job search both now and in the future." Here's what you'll want to do: Lev...
 
  Trick Interview Question: Can You Bake Me a Cake?
by Jean Cummings - Mar, 2013
I just had to write a quick post to let you all know about an intriguing trick interview question and the trick to answering it! I was talking to an IT Director who said that he was asked this question when he was applying, earlier in his career, for a position managing a Help Desk. He was offered the job on the basis of his answer. The hiring authority told him other candidates failed to answer this question in a way that...
 
  7 Key Ways to Use Social Media in Your Job Search
by Jean Cummings - Mar, 2013
One of the biggest concerns my executive clients have is how to use social media in their job search. They know that it's the new kid on the job search block, but they themselves have rarely gone beyond a bare bones LinkedIn profile (LIP). Facebook evokes shudders of horror, and Twitter is deemed trivial. Some rethinking might be in order. Life calls on us to go out of our comfort zone on occasion - and this may be one of t...
