Tips for times of transition: Part 1 – Career marketing strategies for job seekers

Recently, Twitter friend Bridget Haymond, of Truth for Life Coaching, approached me to collaborate on putting together handouts for job seeking members of the congregation at her church — Grace Covenant Church, in Charlotte, NC. I happily obliged. With Bridget’s permission, I’ll also share the information we created together with my blog readers. Here’s the […]

We’re all connected somehow …

I was going to title this, “It’s a small world after all”, but then “that song” would be stuck in our heads all day and I didn’t want to do that to us. I’m reading Malcolm Gladwell’s The Tipping Point. In it he recounts Stanley Milgram’s small world experiment, the original study about six-degrees of […]

Job Search Tweets

When Susan Whitcomb, Deb Dib and Chandlee Bryan put out a call for job search tweets for inclusion in their upcoming book, The Twitter Job Search Guide: Find a Job and Advance Your Career in Just 15 Minutes a Day, (set for release early March 2010), I gladly dug through my Twitter stream and found […]

There is no such thing as “Just”

“It’s not who we are that holds us back….it’s who we think we are not!” This quote floats by on Twitter occasionally. I liked it so well the first time I saw it, I wrote it down on a post- it note and put it at eye-level in front of me. Not sure who coined it, but […]

Yes. I tweet. And I’m proud of it.

It’s early New Year’s Eve, the last day of 2009. I just tweeted this: “One of my favorite things about 2009 … all my Twitter friends. You guys gave me more than you’ll ever know. Thank you! HAPPY NEW YEAR!!” And it’s true. I can trace a good bit of the wonderfulness of 2009 back […]

Is your job search "cookie-cutter" or "hand-dropped"?

I’ve been honored by my career colleagues with an invitation to participate in The Career Collective. Once a month, a group of career professionals will blog on a subject topical and timely for a job seeker. We’ll post our thoughts on our own blog and link to the post of our colleagues on the same […]

Do as I say, not as I do.

When I first took a teleseminar on blogging, one thing the instructor said was if you disappear from your blog for a while, don’t call attention to it. Start again like you posted yesterday. Sooooo, here I am calling attention to the fact it’s almost been two months since I’ve pontificated … to help make […]

Guest Post on Careerealism

Between Daylight Saving Time and the events of this past weekend, I’ve been remiss in tooting my own horn about my contribution to an article on resume writing for Careerealism. (As I tell my rez clients. If you don’t toot your own horn, who will???) And yes gang, this is another Twitter-generated opportunity. Stop rolling […]

Guest Post on What Would Dad Say?

I’ve alluded to the wonderfulness of Twitter in my previous post. Well, here’s an example. I meet G L Hoffman through Twitter. Not only did he send me copy of his e-book Dig your Job or Find a New One (I’ll review it in a future post. Great stuff!!!!) when we connected, he recently tweeted […]
