by Mary Jeanne Vincent - Feb, 2014
Nearly every client I work with laments the fact that he didn’t keep better records of his achievements in previous years. While it is not impossible, it is often a challenge to reconstruct specific examples of your work accomplishments. More than one client has spent hours in his garage rummaging through old boxes in search of evidence that we can use on his resume. If you are faced with this dilemma, here is what you...
 
  Handling Illegal Interview Questions
by Mary Jeanne Vincent - Feb, 2014
Most of us are aware that federal and state laws prohibit discrimination against an employee or applicant because of race, color, gender, religious beliefs, national origin, disability, or age. While these laws are designed to protect us from discrimination, they do not always prevent us from being asked illegal questions during an interview. If you suspect that you may be asked an illegal question, it is important to pr...

  Putting the Sizzle in Your Next Interview
by Mary Jeanne Vincent - Nov, 2010
Did your last interview sizzle like bacon on the grill, or did it fizzle like a bottle of champagne left on the counter December 31? Who wins when you seize the opportunity to shine? You, your future co-workers and the hiring manager do. Use the following tips to put the snap, crackle and pop into your next interview. Build interest before the interview by crafting a well-written résumé and cover letter. Use your cov...
 
  Be Choosy About What You Want
by Mary Jeanne Vincent - Oct, 2010
Years ago, I worked in the hospitality industry hiring people for a wide variety of positions. Job seekers frequently approached me by saying, “I’ll take anything.” That was one of the biggest turnoffs. It wasn’t my responsibility to identify the right job for every person who walked through the door. It was their responsibility to figure that out before the interview conversation ever happened. There is the misconcep...
 
  References as Rainmakers
by Mary Jeanne Vincent - Jul, 2010
As a job seeker, you understand the importance of having a list of solid references — those folks who can’t say enough great things about you. But today’s job candidate needs to go beyond simply compiling a list of folks who will say positive things about him when a potential employer calls. Today’s A-list candidate seeks out references who are rainmakers, mentors and salespeople. People who can and will actively promote...
 
  Ask These Interview Questions
by Mary Jeanne Vincent - May, 2010
An interview is a conversation between two or more individuals with all parties involved in the process. Asking and answering questions is fair game for everyone. Unfortunately, sometimes job seekers and hiring managers alike are so uncomfortable with the interview process that they ask the wrong questions or forego their opportunity to ask questions entirely. As a job seeker, it is your responsibility to communicate to the...

by Mary Jeanne Vincent - Apr, 2010
There is no doubt that today’s job search environment is very competitive. There is a lot of talk about a “jobless” recovery which seems like an oxymoron to me. Regardless of the talk, companies are hiring. Yes, the pace is slow and the interview process longer. Nevertheless, several of my clients have received offers in the last few months. Things are looking up. Having said that, I attribute much of their success to a...
 
  Creating a Powerful Impression
by Mary Jeanne Vincent - Mar, 2010
First impressions count. Is your professional image enhancing or hindering your chances for success? This is the question, Marion Gellatly, a certified image master in Pebble Beach, isn’t afraid to ask. And you can believe it is what every hiring manager is mentally assessing during the interview.
