Tuesday’s Tip: LinkedIn IPO

Posted by Kevin Crews - The Career Strategist on May 31, 2011 in Job Tip |

I am really glad to have (and use) LinkedIn as a networking tool for finding qualified candidates and networking with like-minded individuals. It has been a great tool to accomplish these tasks. And with the price of FREE, it is making the big monster mega job boards run for cover. But, is this another MySpace […]

Tuesday’s Tip: Your Negotiation Levergage is Now… Not a Year from Now

Posted by Kevin Crews - The Career Strategist on May 24, 2011 in Job Tip |

Research shows that more than 50% of the people accepting positions have no negotiations at all with their potential employer. This is wrong for at least 3 reasons: 1) There is no easy way for a company to come back to you after you fail to negotiate and say, “I know we offered you $50,000 […]

Thursday’s Thought: WIA Grant Money and Other “Free” Training

Posted by Kevin Crews - The Career Strategist on May 20, 2011 in Job Tip |

If I where to take a poll on how many job seekers have looked into WIA Grant Money, or have taken any kind of free education while they have been searching for their next opportunity, I am afraid that the results would make me cry. Why is it that so many of us are reluctant […]

Tuesday’s Tip: Is There Activity, Productivity (or both) in Your Job Search?

Posted by Kevin Crews - The Career Strategist on May 17, 2011 in Job Tip |

If you don’t know where you’re going, any road will take you there! When I work with job seekers, too many of them confuse (or substitute) activity for productivity. Activity does not necessarily equal productivity. I see a lot of people keeping themselves “busy” (or active) by going to multiple networking groups every week, applying […]

Thursday’s Thought: “It Takes a Village” to Get Me a Job?

Posted by Kevin Crews - The Career Strategist on May 12, 2011 in Job Tip |

It might not take a Village, but you certainly don’t want to be the only cheerleader for Team You. You need to network and establish relationships with people in your area of interest if you want to have a team of willing supporters of You. And I don’t mean by inviting them to connect on […]

Tuesday’s Tip: You Can’t Click “APPLY” to Find the Hidden Job Market

The majority of all positions ever filled in the history of time have never been posted! So all of you that are comfortable signing onto your computer, finding positions posted online, and clicking on that dreaded “APPLY” button are not only “clicking” your resume into a black hole, but you are missing out on a […]

Thursday’s Thought: Get Those Creative Juices Flowing!

Posted by Kevin Crews - The Career Strategist on May 5, 2011 in Job Tip |

I have met many job seekers during my career, and the one thing that still amazes me is their reluctance to do (or try) something outside-of-the-box. We need to bring back the “kid in us” and not worry about what someone is going to think about us. When we were kids, we seldom “asked for […]
