By Matt Black, “Unfortunately, we’ve decided to move forward with another candidate…” Cue the disappointment. Strike up the “boo-hoo” band.  You didn’t get the job – and you’re pissed. Sometimes you’ll have every right to be; at other times you may have been in over your head. View Details

By Vicki Salemi, The next time an outstanding colleague on your team resigns or your fantastic mentor moves on to another role, think about how you can help them with testimonials.

By Lolly Dasklal, If you have a hard time remembering people's names, you're not alone. We have all experienced it--you meet someone and scramble to remember their name. It's frustrating. A new study shows part of the reason why: The name of someone you've just met doesn't convey much meaning. This is known as the Baker Effect. If someone new tells you they're a baker, they're giving you context about their life and what they do. View Details

By Laura Smith-Proulx, Have you struggled with putting your brand into your resume, writing a profile paragraph that looks great, but is failing to get the attention you deserve? If you’ve spent considerable time (or money) on a lackluster resume that serves up the same information as everyone else’s, it might be time to rewrite your introductory summary to get better results.

By Miles Jennings, You’ll hear that successful people think differently — that they are somehow hard-wired for high performance. There’s the notion that some entrepreneurs perfectly combine analytical and reasoning skills with optimism, creativity, problem solving and people skills. But successful people entertain the same kind of negative and self-limiting thoughts that everyone else has. What differs is their identification and reaction to them. View Details

By Kazim Ladimeji, In recent times, the interview process has softened from a more hostile and interrogative style to a more gentrified and dignified approach.

By Laura Smith-Proloux, As a former hiring manager in several consulting firms, I often wondered if candidates were cognizant of the impression they made on employers.
