You’ve probably done this (or have a friend or colleague who has). You’re in an extended job search but can’t get the interviews or offers you need. Running out of time and money, you take a lower-level role just to cover the bills and keep a roof over your head. Watch: Fighting Against Underemployment  The problem, though, is that once you do this, it gets harder to return your career to its pre-search trajectory and salary. Recruiters and hiring managers will tend to perceive your candidacy as tarnished and you’ll find it more difficult than ever to land interviews, let...

In order to move ahead in your career, you have to generate a lot of energy. Sometimes you can get stagnant and out of practice at making things happen. Here is a simple five-minute/three-step way to get back on track: 1. Review Your Goals Review your entertainment career goals to make sure they are clear and up-to-date. Maybe you thought you wanted to be a talent agent, but after six months on the desk of an agency power player, you changed your mind. What’s your goal now? 2. Describe Your Career Goals Create a really solid two to three sentence description of...

Mock interviews provide candidates with an opportunity to test out their interview skills with someone who isn’t evaluating them for an actual job. A mock interview may be offered through career services for students or recent alumni, by a career coach or through a local workforce services office for candidates in the process of transitioning to a new opportunity. Here are some of the benefits of a mock interview: 1. They help you reduce stress and anxiety about interviewing. If you’re not sure how to answer typical interview questions, mock interviews provide a great opportunity for you to “test drive” your answers. The...

I recently wrote a post over on LinkedIn about the power of Mindful Career Ownership. It’s the idea that, as a business-of-one who is fully responsible for my career success, I must create a business plan to hold myself accountable that will also guide me to achieve what I want. In my experience, a lot of people out there today are on career autopilot – and it’s costing them a happy professional life. For example, take this quick quiz to see if you are guilty of not being mindful enough in your career: You find yourself pondering your bad luck...

The first thing to know is that it is possible to find employment in a matter of days, like a colleague of mine.  He got recruited via Facebook and offered a position two days after he was interviewed and 4 days...

Over the course of the last year, I have been given the gift of learning to identifying my top skill sets. These lessons were not without skepticism and questioning. But, I can say that these lessons have transformed the way I work and the types of work I take on. Because I was lucky enough to have someone share with me the #1 secret to identifying your top skill sets. And it is this: The tasks and projects are you best at. AND When you finish the task, you have more energy than when you started the task. applying for...

Zappos
Did you know that working for Zappos, a company on the GameChangers 500 list of the world’s top purpose-driven companies, is so desirable that it’s actually harder to get a job there than it is to be admitted to Harvard? It’s true. In 2013, 25,000 people applied for jobs with Zappos, and they only hired 250. That means that 99% of people who applied didn’t get the job. So, what makes these types of companies so darn desirable? (Because there are thousands more out there.) And how do you get the attention of a company like this and get the...

Do you know how to be the employee your company wants to promote? I heard an interesting statistic on the radio awhile back that really sparked my interest. It stated that 90% of people who do this are promoted. Then, they had listeners call in and try to guess what that one thing was. It was something I personally NEVER would have guessed. About 90% of people who keep a candy bowl on their desks for people who visit their office or drop by are promoted. Can you believe it? Maybe you can… maybe you can’t… but it got me...

You can’t escape stress that is a direct outcome of your busy work schedule. Everest College’s Third Annual Survey reveals some startling truths –workplace stress is on the rise amongst Americans and a massive 83% are stressed out by at least one thing at work. It’s also been identified as the number one workplace risk issue. A large percentage of employees see work stress as an acceptable fallout of their professional lives and ignore it. What they do not realize or choose to ignore is that it has a detrimental impact on their physical health, their personal lives and in...

Job searching can be a lengthy process, especially if you’re just depending on the submission of your resume to job postings through job boards. On the other hand, if you are working with the right recruiters, they can put you in front of the right opportunities and help you get your dream job quicker. The fact is, there are some jobs that never even make it to job boards. Employers may hire a recruiter as the main avenue to finding the right job candidate, and if you’ve grabbed that recruiter’s attention, you have a chance at the job. How To...
