Do your research
BEFORE the interview
Abridged: Fox News
DENVER, CO --
Research and find out about the company you are interviewing with. One
of the first questions an employer may ask is, "What do you know about
us?" At the least, know what products/services the company provides, how
long it has been in business and something about its reputation. Your
knowledge of the company demonstrates your interest in working there.
Conduct salary research. You should find out what the market rate is for
the job you are interviewing for in advance of the meeting. Take into
account your experience and the location. If the salary question comes
up, you will be prepared to make an educated response. You can find
salary information by calling the company's human resources department,
looking at job postings for similar jobs or looking at salary surveys on
Research the interviewer. If you know the person you will be meeting,
try to find out something about him/her. Perhaps the interviewer is an
alumni from your school, was recently promoted or won a citizenship
award. Slipping this information into a conversation will be impressive,
if you do it judiciously.
Getting back on track and refocused
Abridged: Job Seeker Weekly
MIAMI, FL -- Loss
of confidence is the main issue that derails a successful job search. It can
hurt a job candidate's marketability and successful reentry to the job
market. Here are a couple of tips to assist you in getting refocused and
back on track. Focus on your greatest assets. Years of work and practical
experience have given you many marketable skills, make sure that you are
advertising these skills to the people that could utilize them.
Get out and about and network! Isolation will lower your spirits and keep
you from connecting with people who can assist you in getting a job. During
this time, increase the reading you do within your area of expertise. Get
free-magazine subscriptions to all those trade and general business
magazines in your area of employability.
No matter what business you're in, there are trade magazines to help you
improve professionally. Trade magazines help keep you current with your
industry, improve your business and improve your profitability. There are a
lot of trade magazines covering a variety of industries; topics include
technology, IT management, marketing, business technology and e-business and
more. There are many excellent articles in these trade magazines each month.
Your biggest problem will be that there is never enough time to read them
Networking in the
Abridged: Yahoo! HotJobs
VIEW, CA -- Networking is probably the best opportunity you'll ever have to
make connections, build relationships and help yourself and others in the
networking group succeed. Networking with like-minded individuals is also a
great way to explore new career options, learn more about a specific
industry, gather insights from peers on critical business issues and grow
Think about what you want to accomplish by joining a particular networking
group. Are you looking for a job, trying to develop new business or do you
want to expand your network of contacts and become known as the go-to person
in the industry? You can choose to be either an active or passive member of
the group, but will get the most out of the experience by regularly
attending and participating in the activities.
Once you decide on the networking group that matches your goals, you can
immediately increase your visibility by volunteering to participate on a
committee. According to Executive Career Consultant Kathleen Jennings, "It's
not who you know, it's who knows you." Joining a professional networking
group is an opportunity for you to gain access and exposure to people you
might not otherwise meet.
Job hunting takes
personal effort on your part
BIRMINGHAM, AL -- I've said it many
times: "Nothing beats the smile, eye contact, and hand shake!" I also
said, years ago when the Internet first got started that the day would
come when job seekers would sit at their computers, unshaven or hair in
rollers, expecting to get hired before getting dressed. It doesn't, and
won't happen, without effort on your part.
I believe that the best purpose of the Internet for job seekers is for
information, research and applying to job vacancies. The Internet has
become an integral part of the job-hunting process. Any job-hunters who
fail to access the information, contacts, job listings, assessment tests
and research opportunities that the Internet has to offer are putting
themselves at a serious disadvantage.
It's also important to note that most large employers refer all requests
for references to their human resource department. So if you are feeling
cautious about listing a previous supervisor, simply refer prospective
employers to the director of human resources. You should list previous
co-workers whom you know will give you positive feed-back. It will be
best for you and your previous employer to present the facts accurately,
and without prejudice.

SAN MARCOS, CA
-- In a career that spans more than four decades, Kathryn Coverston has
had her share of highs and lows. She's doubled her salary more than
once, she's had job offers without asking, and she's received
promotions. On the other hand, she has not been immune to the vagaries
of the economy and the job market. She has been laid off three times.
After each setback, Kathryn, 63, has bounced back with a mix of
flexibility, determination and a network of contacts. After she lost her
human resources job last year, Kathryn enrolled in an eight-month course
to train for a new career. With diploma in hand, she is scouring
websites, developing contacts and visiting employers to find a job as a

shows. I will go over and above what is expected.”
