  • The One Essential Element of Every Job Interview"People appreciate honest, specific and personal stories that foster a connection and show some human vulnerability."

  • 4 Ways to Use Facebook to Find a Job"List not only your current but your past employers, your job title, a description of your role and the years you were with the organization. If you want to make yourself known to all of those recruiters who troll for job candidates on Facebook, take a few minutes to fill out this information."

  • How to Build a Meaningful Career"Invite four or five people to serve as your informal board of directors. You might tell them, 'I’m doing some exploring about what I want from work and I’d love to talk with you on occasion to get your feedback on my direction'."

  • 5 Tips for Instant Interview Success"The best interviews are a give and take. Come prepared to discuss the company, the role, your background, current trends in the industry, the reason for the opening and any recent business events that may impact the interviewer, role, company or industry."

  • Social Media and the Job Search"A key principle of marketing is to generate interest without giving away the whole story. Your resume and your LinkedIn profile are advertisements and their purpose is to pique someone's interest enough to get you a first interview."
