10 Things You May Not Know About Personal Branding

Executive Career Brand

Do you dismiss personal branding for your executive job search because you think it’s all about self-promotion, and you don’t like to boast about yourself? You’re not alone.

Structuring Your Resume to Accomplish Its Goal

The Job Quest

It’s not uncommon for folks who want to partner with me to say something along the lines of, “ I need a better résumé to get a job. ” I then (gently) correct them: Your résumé won’t get you a job. It doesn’t matter if it’s the best résumé in the world. It won’t get you a job. What your résumé can do is get you a call for an interview. That should be your goal for those sheets of paper that contain the summary of your life’s work. Nothing more.

3 Tips for New Employee Orientation at Small Businesses


When I facilitated new employee orientation at companies with over 500 employees, I easily had enough new hires for several orientations per month. However, this approach to orientation is not realistic for a small business where there may only be a few hires per year. As a result, new hires at small businesses often get no more orientation than sitting down at a desk to fill out paperwork and read the employee handbook. Orientation is not just a way to teach new hires about policies and rules.
