Giving Notice and Moving On....

Giving Notice and Moving On....
It’s the one subject I haven’t covered yet….but now, it seems all too timely. First, this is going to be my final guest post for Job Stalker - I have already e-mailed Brendan (did so two weeks ago). I wish I could say that I’ve found a steady gig, but I’ve been fortunate enough to keep... Read more »

Putting Myself Out There

Putting Myself Out There
Right now, I’m in a semi-regular position with the job search – I’m coasting on some freelance work (lost out on a potential fun job, but continuing to seek more clients); questioning whether I truly am “unemployed” based on a friend’s comment (my answer – I’m probably more underemployed than employed); and resenting those who...

Job Seeking Tips For Any Age

Job Seeking Tips For Any Age
Sometimes, when seeking work (either freelance or full-time), I find myself reading many articles that clearly define an issue…and some that make them more complex. On the “clearly defining” the issue, Kyle Lagunas (HR Analyst for Software Advice) e-mailed me and asked me write about an article he wrote on job seeking advice for Generation... Read more »

More Job Seekers Behaving Badly

More Job Seekers Behaving Badly
Awhile ago, I had posted an entry about two job seekers who tended to….well, behave in a very counterproductive manner, to put it gently. In that time, I thought that maybe my own patience would grow and I would learn to accept that kind of behavior – at the very least, accept in a way... Read more »

Through A Glass Door (Dot Com) Brightly

Through A Glass Door (Dot Com) Brightly
Occasionally, there will be a unique confluence of events – things happen which seem a little too convenient to be coincidental, but not enough to seem forced. So when I discovered Glassdoor just a few weeks before being asked to write about it by a blogging pal of mine…..it just seemed natural for me to... Read more »

And sometimes it's different …

So, another week of busy-busy and I’ve not had a chance to keep up with Twitter, or much else that’s not related to the two projects that I’m currently working on, so I don’t have links to bring you today. Those 12 links, week-in and week-out, represented the fruits of something like 25 hours of... Read more »

Job Stalking Tips....of Bronze!

Job Stalking Tips....of Bronze!
Given that today is a national holiday, when we celebrate our independence, I thought I would draft a unique essay by using a character who is a cornerstone of Amercan popular culture – a hidden cornerstone – and basically use that as a way to discuss the job hunt. Doc Savage will be celebrating his... Read more »

What you might want to be reading ...

Not that I suspect that there are any readers of this space out there whose weekly existence hinges on hearing from me, but I do feel like I’m letting you down when I miss what would be my “usual posting” slots. I wish I had a “better” reason than I do … i.e., that I... Read more »

Getting Schooled in Non-Profit Job Stalking

Getting Schooled in Non-Profit Job Stalking
Yes, I admit it – I sometimes listen and heed the advice of career coaches. One such piece of advice is to connect with my school’s alumni associations, and since I was a alumnus of Loyola here in Chicago (getting both my bachelor’s and master’s while attending classes in three different classes), I took advantage...

Welcome to the Machine

Sorry, again, for the long gap between my posts in here (thank goodness for Gordon’s Wednesday entries!), but things have been “complicated” both with some development (i.e., unpaid) work that I’ve been tied up with, and a networking calendar that has been little short of brutal. Oh, and, of course, fighting off the “I’ve been... Read more »
