If All Else Fails in Executive Job Search, Read the Directions

Executive Career Brand

I’m sure you’ve heard this sound advice, but you still may resist it as you plow into various tasks around the house or at work. I think some of us are just wired to test our mettle and problem-solving ability, without taking the time to first learn about those things, so the process will make sense and work better. The same holds true for executive job search. If you haven’t been in a job search for, say, 5 years or more, you probably don’t have an overall understanding of how it works today.

5 Things You Can Expect From Orangetheory

Ms. Career Girl

The post 5 Things You Can Expect From Orangetheory appeared first on Ms. Career Girl. I never know what to anticipate, which can feel scary and exciting at the same time. To date, I have taken four classes at the Orangetheory in downtown Sarasota , each one led by a different coach, each one a distinctive workout from the previous. ICYMI, their elevator speech is this: half of the class starts on the treadmills, half of the class starts on the rowers/in the weight room.

How Long Should Your Resume Be?

Professional Resume Services

An executive resume service can help you highlight your skills properly. Traditional thinking holds your resume should be no longer than one page, but have times changed? An executive resume service will typically urge you to keep it to no more than two pages. However, some will say three pages is appropriate in certain instances. The bottom line is there are exceptions to every rule, and although your resume should be well edited, the focus should be on content, not length.

5 Ways to Overcome a Bad Reference

Evil HR Lady

In an ideal world, all bosses would be fantastic , and the only bad references would be for former employees who deserved the bad reference.

“Who is your next employer? – How should I respond?”

Sklover Working Wisdom

Question: Hi. I’m trying to find out how to respond to management and colleagues who ask where I’ll be working once I tender my resignation. Any ideas? Delia. Pawling, New York. Answer: Dear Delia, Your question is a common one, and one you are wise to ask, as well: 1. When an employee resigns, he or she is not obligated to tell HR, colleagues or managers who their next employer will be. Who you will be working for in the future is simply your business, and no one else’s. It’s that simple.

Science Says: You Can’t Charm Your Way Through a Video Interview

Evil HR Lady

Some companies use recorded interviews for their first round. You sit at home, and using your computer’s equipment, videotape your answers to a series of questions. There are distinct advantages to this-you can practice your answers, you can take several runs at it (unless the company has a specific software program that doesn’t allow do-overs), you can do it at 3:00 a.m. if that works for you, and the decision makers can watch it when they have the time.

Sklover’s Thought for the Work Week

Sklover Working Wisdom

“Don’t put water. into somebody else’s wine.”. Greek Proverb. At work and elsewhere, it never pays to be a “spoiler.” No matter how much you may wish your “wine” was as “sweet” as another person’s, it does you no good to criticize, sabotage or minimize what they have done, what they have, or who they are. Turn the other way: make your own “wine” as sweet as possible. Otherwise it – and you – will surely only grow bitter. 2016 Alan L. Sklover. All Rights Reserved.

If you read about the situation like that, it makes complete sense that a judge would deny her request. After all, the whole purpose of contracts is to prevent one person from walking away. What makes this case different is that Kesha claims that Dr. Luke drugged and raped her years ago. Isn’t a claim of rape enough to let the victim out of the contract?
