Your Long Lost Friend on Facebook Could Lead You to Your Next Job

We all know what a huge tool networking is these days! Staying connected with your friends and coworkers from years past is always a helpful resource to have at your disposal. In the past, if one was reaching out to an old friend to inquire about a potential job opportunity, it would have taken weeks of time to get writing correspondence back and forth between the two parties. Now, within seconds, at the touch of a button or two, the same type of correspondence can be initiated.

Negotiating a Job Offer… Are You Prepared?

Whether you are on the job hunt fresh out of the university or have decades of experience under your belt, the process can be tricky. As you advance in your job search, the questions and concerns swimming around in your head become less about resumes and cover letters and more about interviews and the details of a potential job offer.   There are so many angles to be considered when looking at a potential job and the package that it entails.

You want a decent salary but don’t want to be laughed out of the office when you offer too high of a [...]

Struggling to Write Your Resume? We’ll Transform Your Trash into Opportunity

For many, the task of writing a resume can seem like a never-ending cycle of writing a rough draft, shaking your head in disapproval, wadding it up and throwing it in the trash, and then starting all over again. You just can’t seem to get the right words together. You just can’t seem to take the wealth of experience and knowledge that you have in your field and make it shine on this very important piece of paper.   As if searching for a new job isn’t already exhausting and emotional enough, nobody wants to endure the added pressure of throwing together a well-written resume in a short amount of time. Oftentimes, this is something that we put off longer than we should. We think, “Well, I don’t have any legitimate prospects at this time, so I’ll just mess with tweaking my resume later this week.” Or, the ever popular, “It will only take me [...]
