Battling Unemployment in Today's Job Market

Author: Robt Barlow

Being unemployed can take a major toll on your self-esteem, your financial situation, and your desire. If prolonged, it can also have a negative impact on your competency level (i.e., keeping up with skills, experience and attributes that are in demand in the job market). But don't get down on yourself. As you look for a new job, you need to understand that there are thousands of others who are also unemployed and looking for a job.

Telecommuting Cover Letter Tips

Author: Nell Taliercio

You have your resume completed and you want to get a cover letter developed to send along with it. Should you use the same one you used for past onsite jobs? The answer would be no.

Onsite jobs are different than telecommuting jobs. Not only do you not commute to work for a telecommuting position, but employers are also looking for slightly different things from a person who will work from home.

Author: Christopher

If you are one of those people who do not feel satisfied or do not find any joy in your current job, then it may be a time to move on to a new job. This decision requires a lot of careful planning and thinking. Because of typical circumstances such as conflict with your boss or problems with your colleagues, you may be tempted to hand over your resignation too hastily.

Stop Your Job Search Until 2010 – Dumb Move

Author: Brad Remillard

I get this all the time from candidates I’m working with in our job search coaching program. It usually starts with, “The holidays are here and nobody is hiring during this period.” or “Why look now? I will wait until the new year. It is time for a break.”

As succinctly as my mild manner can put it, DUMB MOVE. Sorry to yell, but that is what this attitude is. So let’s call it dumb.

Work at Home Scams

Author: Josiah Walter

I'm sure we've all seen the ads: "Earn $1000's weekly stuffing envelopes from home!" Have you ever been tempted to send in your money for that one? I have. Luckily I didn't do it, but I know many people have. It sounds so great, doesn't it? Sit at home watching television while stuffing hundreds of envelopes, and get a nice check every week. If only such a job existed! Don't fool yourself, it doesn't. Why?
