Resumes provoke a great deal of questions. Should I write a functional, chronological, or hybrid resume? What do I do to make my resume survive the filtering programs companies use to hone in on a select few candidates? I'm over fifty years old, how far back do I go with my resume? I'm just getting out of school, what can I put on my resume? Should I use a service to help me write a better resume? How important are resumes? These are some of the questions this show will answer as it arms...

The war we must win is the one fought within (http://www.tompayne.com). This tagline of mine applies to many fields and certainly to the area of job search. But sometimes job loss is such an unexpected crushing blow that it is next-to-impossible for an individual to overcome the shock of this devastating loss on their own. So what are they to do? Grit their teeth and hope for the best? How about taking advantage of the coping mechanisms that Professor Michael Milco discusses. His 18 years of...

Everyone knows, or has heard, how networking is the key to finding the job. (http://www.tompayne.com) If that is true, then why do people spend so little time networking and then hate doing it whenever they do? It is because networking events are an alien environment, filled with strangers who the jobseeker is convinced are not interested in them or their situation. We need to change this mindset by planning, rehearsing and getting to the point where we become fearless networkers. Fearless...

Many jobs never get posted, because they are filled by networking. Informational interviewing allows you to gain access to this job market, and there are techniques that can be used that make this both much easier and far more fun.

Kerry Obrist, the CEO and owner of More Access Solutions (http://www.moreaccesssolutions.com ), is legally blind. Her disability came upon her when she was thirty years old and it suddenly made all that she had previously studied and worked for--being a school psychologist--irrelevant. Her story and the unique issues surrounding job search (http://www.tompayne.com) for the disabled are covered in this show. This is a much-needed topic, because 1 in 5 Americans have some disability and the...

The goal is to find the best opportunity as effectively (http://www.tompayne.com ) and efficiently as possible. Long layoffs can be financially painful both in the short- and long-term. To limit the amount of downtime we need to focus on the most important job search issues in a manner that is somewhat sequential. Anita Jenke, the Executive Director of the Career Transitions Center of Chicago, shares the type of plan that is taught by this organization and invites jobseekers to download some of...

Many jobseekers over 40 years of age are frightened about their prospects of finding work. They hear on the news the following constant refrain: those who are over 40 are out of work for a longer period of time than those who are younger. But this same statistic means those who are over 40 are being hired and, therefore, these jobseekers need to focus on the elements of successful job search if they want to shorten the amount of time they spend between jobs. This show will feature tips from...

For example, did you know that interviewers who create a relaxed, comfortable environment can find out far more about you--including your weaknesses--than those who create a hostile or stressful environment? In this show Sharon Krohn, an executive recruiter who has conducted thousands of job...

In this show we explore just how central this development of the value statement is to one's job search, and offer a template to guide you in the construction of your own.
