Why Your Network Isn’t Going To Help You - Pure Jobs
Fresh-faced graduates receive the same advice from every podium speech they hear before going up to the stage to pick up a piece of paper they spent four years earning and haven’t started paying for: Do what you love, be happy, always wear sunscreen, and success is about building a network around you. So, you go about building a network of friends, colleagues, old professors, or high school teachers. And of course, you gravitate towards like-minded folk. People in your industry or who have helped you understand that what you’re doing is what you want to do for the rest...

9 Great Ways To Answer A ‘Stupid’ Interview Question
its #Monday Why do interviewers ask strange interview questions like, “What animal would you be?” They want to throw you off your game and get candid answers (they know you’ve practiced good answers to interview questions) and they really want a peek into your personality and thought process. Hiring you is a risk, and they want to make sure they make the right choice. There’s no such thing as being over-prepared for any job interview, and that includes being ready for questions like this one. It’s actually a pretty good pre-interview exercise—thinking about the qualities necessary to do a job...

5 ‘Wake Up Call’ Things To Ask Yourself About Your Dream Business
So, you’re thinking about opening a little shop around the corner where your friends can always find the bauble of their dreams or, perhaps, a charming little bed and breakfast to be your own vacation paradise. Maybe you’ve got the TV ideals in mind, like the bar in “Cheers” — “Where everybody knows your name” — or the little Vermont inn that Bob Newhart called home for years. But running a business is much more than sugar plums and fairies. Your most important consideration: The business of the business. While it’s good to have lots of ideas and a passion...

#1 Secret To Becoming Popular
When you were in high school, you dreamed of being popular. You wanted to know everyone, get invited to all of the parties, and be liked by everybody. Now that you’re grown up, you still crave popularity – except, instead of being the cool kid in your high school, you want to be the cool kid in your industry. Becoming popular in the professional world takes much more than making hundreds of LinkedIn connections. Sure, having lots of connections on LinkedIn is great, but if you’re just mindlessly connecting with people and not working to build relationships with them, your...

Your Resume Has 2 Minutes Or Less To Get Attention
An overwhelming majority of recruiters and HR professionals invest less than two minutes reviewing a candidate’s resume, according to a survey CareerBuilder recently completed. Additionally, almost 20% of the HR professionals surveyed stated that they invest 30 seconds or less. Talk about a shrinking window of time to capture the employer’s attention! So, what’s a job seeker to do? 1. Make It Newsworthy The hiring manager will invest most of their 30-second to 2-minute scan of your resume at the top, so it’s imperative that you put the most noteworthy content first. Furthermore, don’t be vague! Use significant metrics, accomplishments, and...

Secret How To Get A High Paying Job Without A Degree
College isn’t for everyone, and it’s about time we come to terms with this fact. Despite having made the Dean’s List, I dropped out of college after my freshmen year. I didn’t feel comfortable with the debt I was incurring, and I didn’t feel confident that college was adequately preparing me for my future. After dropping out of college, I made a series of unconventional choices that allowed me to flourish in my career with job opportunities at top firms, including a Fortune 10 telecom. My story goes against conventional wisdom that states that you must have a college degree in...

6 Steps To Kickstart Your Career As A College Freshman
 So, you and your parents have just invested a significant amount of money for your college education. As a freshman, what can you do to make sure you get your money’s worth? How will you assure a return on your investment (ROI)? Well, here is a very important fact about college and ROI.

3 Fatal Executive CV and Resume Mistakes You Should Avoid
Struggling to convey your distinguished career in a compelling executive resume? looking for jobs for seniors. If you believe your resume is disjointed and fails to tell employers who you really are, you’re probably right. Here’s why: we’re taught to be good at what we do, but not to articulate our value proposition. You may spend many waking hours spearheading change, handling corporate strategy, leading large teams, or directing enterprise-scale projects – but not a single minute thinking about how to represent these accomplishments to others. As a result, writing about your executive career can be a difficult task – particularly without...
