Do you feel like you lose a little bit of your soul every day you go to work? Like your job is literally sucking the life out of you… And turning you into a real life zombie? All you want to do is get out of there – but then what would you do? Where would you go? This is an incredibly tough position to be in. The good news? You’re not the only one.

When you work at a job where you have to deal with customers often, you’re bound to run into a few that test your patience, gross you out or are down right nuts.

We’re launching a new show soon here on CAREEREALISM based around the crazy stories that people have from their jobs. You can read more about this great new show at the bottom of this post!

If you haven’t heard it before, here it is: Your resume needs to showcase the top accomplishments you’ve achieved on the job. Employers want to hire the best talent and they won’t have a reason to consider you for their job opening unless your resume presents an indication of the success you have had in your previous work. So, now that we have that out of the way, the question becomes: “How do I describe that experience and the resulting accomplishments on my resume?” The language you use to highlight your accomplishments can make a huge difference, consider the following:...

Time and again, I encounter job seekers that have good prior or current work experience, pretty sharp resumes, and a convincing cover letters, but still struggle to get interviews.  Start searching for compaines with jobs for hiring. In situations like this, I like to suggest having a closer look at their personal brand. Personal brand? What do I mean by this exactly, and might this “personal brand thingy” also apply to your situation? Personal branding is a complex subject, and in my opinion there is no one good definition that sums it up entirely. In my opinion, the bottom line...

Excellent interview questions
Jobs for hiring but what about the interview? As an interview preparation expert and career coach I leverage my skills and experience as a recruiter, human resource professional, and Student of Life to guide clients in their interview preparation. I have a day job as a corporate recruiter and I conducted around 3,000 phone interviews for a number of different and diverse companies in 2010. Each day, I witness job seekers make serious errors in how they market their skills and present themselves as individuals during phone interviews–errors which knock them out of the recruitment process! Sadly for them, with...

Job seekers without a flair for writing and storytelling may find it painfully difficult to put together an impressive cover letter. The most common way they start their cover letter is with words like, “I’m very pleased to submit my application.” But do you realize just how awfully stiff these words sound to employers? A cover letter is your personal introduction to the employer. It has to communicate your professional journey so far, or how you acquired the skills that you’ve listed in your resume. In the recruitment industry, narrating a story and driving home a point is considered a “very good”...

Leaders and followers are linked – you cannot have one without the other. Becoming an effective leader requires figuring out how to create a following and motivate them to produce for you. To do that, you first need to understand what makes a great leader tick. Attributes Of Great Leaders Effective leadership is not the same as good management. In order to effectively run an organization, management must be able to plan a strategy, communicate a vision, inspire others to action and solve problems. Effective leadership is based on behaviors that bring about empowerment and change. Great leaders develop loyal...

Job search. Not your favorite pastime, I’m sure. For many, it consists of “unfun” (and even dreaded) action steps such as writing your resume, networking, doing research, and interviewing. So, let’s make it easier on yourself. How To Find The Fun In Job Search I have a – related – personal example for you. When it comes to exercising, I refuse to go to a gym and work out. I despise it. Won’t happen. I want to do something I either enjoy (such as dancing, rollerblading, ice skating, skiing, or martial arts) that gives me a good workout in the...

In your 40s and looking to change careers? You’re not alone. And you’re certainly not crazy. In fact, if there’s ever a time you can – and should – reinvent yourself, that time is now. Below are four ways in which you can start a transition into something better than your status quo. 1. Stop Making Excuses You’ve become accustomed to the fact that your 20s were the years where you figure out what you want to do with your life and then suffer through your choice for the rest of your life. Wrong! You are most definitely not the first...
