  • Selling Your Salary

    I usually conduct a brief survey when I speak to groups about job searching. I ask participants to rank a list of topics to indicate where they feel they need the most assistance. The choices are: resumes, cover letters, finding job openings, negotiating and interviewing. Across the board the recipients choose negotiating to discuss. This ...

  • The Twelve Steps of Rejection, Part 2

    This week I am finishing up with the last half of my list of the 12 reasons why your resume may have been rejected.   6. Too generic. You submitted a one-size-fits-all resume. Job seekers often fall into the trap of thinking that they only need to create ONE resume. In today's job market employers want to see resumes that are ...

  • The Key to Your Next Job

    Historically, employers often have had some confusion when it comes to our professions. I'm sure you have all become quite accustomed to the question ''What is the difference between a PA and an NP?''

  • Bad Resume Advice

    I read a lot of resume advice. I like to keep up with what others are telling you to do.   I realized even when I was a new graduate NP that much of the resume guidance I was receiving was not particularly helpful. I could sense that it wasn't geared toward the medical professions, much less applicable to a nurse practitioner. Even ...

  • Privacy and Confidentiality

    I don't know about you, but there isn't a day that goes by when I don't have some sort of umm....interesting experience at work. I understand how awfully tempting it is to jump on Facebook or Twitter and share the events of my day with all 100+ or so of my closest ''friends''. It's so very rewarding to watch a post collect ''likes'' and ...

  • Networking

    One of the most frequent questions I get when counseling job seekers is ''How do I network? I don't think I really understand how to go about it.''  Networking sounds like one of those outdated buzzwords from the 1990s but I can assure you it is still relevant today. Why? For every one of you who will find your next job via a ...

  • The Importance of Cover Letters

    Don't underestimate the importance of a cover letter. Recruiters and hiring managers are far more likely to take note of your application when you include a cover letter. And it's imperative that you be noticed. Because, if you are not noticed you won't be invited to an interview - it's as simple as that.   Here are three major ...
