1. Holiday parties are gold mine for job seekers -

It’s party time! Chances are, you have a holiday party coming up for work or with friends that you just can’t avoid.

Whatever the occasion, these parties can be draining. This is especially true for those of us who are introverts or have other commitments. It can feel like there’s just no room for another to-do on the list.

2. Top Middle Tennessee residential sales for November 2018 -

Top residential real estate sales, November 2018, for Davidson, Williamson, Rutherford, Wilson and Sumner counties, as compiled by Chandler Reports.

3. Interviews can seem harder than the actual job -

Have you ever had to do extra work in a job interview? One of my most intense interviews ever was at Target. I interviewed there after graduate school for a project management role. The process was unlike one I had ever seen up to then.

4. What do you do if asked an illegal interview query? -

I’ve been talking to a number of job seekers lately about illegal interview questions. They keep coming up, and I keep asking myself why.

When you’re a job seeker, you may not realize how common illegal questions are because you’re interviewing for only one or two jobs at a time. But, surprisingly, they’re popping up quite a bit.

5. Interviewing is not hazing -

I never joined a sorority when I was in college. But, like you, I’ve heard some of the horror stories that pledges have to endure as part of Greek life.

For some – but not all – student-led organizations, hazing rituals are just a part of life. Looking back, it seems like they’re a silly college-aged tradition that should have been left in the past.

6. Job seekers have to deal with silly interview queries -

Most interviews come in a fairly straight-forward format: You do a phone screen with human resources and then a phone interview with the hiring manager. Afterward, you meet in person with the hiring manager and other folks on the team.

7. LinkedIn focuses on employee engagement -

I recently had the opportunity to attend Talent Connect, LinkedIn’s annual human resources event, which showcased everything LinkedIn’s been working on in 2018 and its plans for the future.

8. Salary questions poison process for hiring best workers -

Sometimes, you want to feel like your work means something. You want to feel like a person who is performing a craft. You want to feel like a professional.

Somehow, looking for a job can make you feel like a discount item on a shelf at a big-box store.

9. Settling for less money to start? That’s a bad idea -

Have you ever had someone tell you that it’s a good idea to get your foot in the door at a company? The theory is that if get your foot in the door and work your way up over time.

I understand the reasoning. It’s a career outlook that has been around for a long time. But, in today’s career environment, this approach can backfire.

10. High employment puts 'purple unicorn' on endangered list -

Dear hiring manager, You’re amazing. You’re the gatekeeper to new jobs and the person who will later help us to get a promotion that will help our careers. But, we have to talk.

The last 18 years have been great. Unemployment was high, and you were justified in being picky in who you hired.

11. Your job search window for 2018 is narrowing -

It’s less than sixty days until Thanksgiving, which will trigger a slowdown in hiring.

It’s just a fact of life.

If you’ve been thinking of finding a new job, this is the time.

12. Don’t always jump at the first job offer that comes along -

Years ago, when I was finishing graduate school in California, I spent a significant amount of time searching for the right job. I would go to job fairs and networking events as if it were my full-time job.

13. Hiring managers continue to ask illegal questions -

The title of this column is a reference to the big elephant in the room. It’s that thing that everybody knows, but nobody is talking about. I’d like to talk about it a little today: illegal job interview questions.

14. Wise up, hiring managers, you’re at a disadvantage -

If you’re looking for a new job and if you’re actively interviewing, I want to encourage you to hang in there. It’s going to work out. I’m sure of it.

Job searching is like dating. It’s really tough until you find “the one.”

15. Neither side should waste the other’s time in job search -

I recently heard a stand-up comedian make a joke about dating. They compared the experiences that men have versus women when they go on a Tinder date.

They joked that when a man gets ready for a blind date, his biggest worry is that it will be boring. He will have wasted an hour of his life and perhaps some money.

16. The time is right for you to find that new job -

For years, the job market has been tight. I’ve spoken to many job seekers who are suffering through work each day. They aren’t sure what their alternatives are, and they’re not prepared to be unemployed for any length of time.

17. Your online reviews could be killing your recruiting -

Every once in a while, I’m talking to a job seeker when something happens that I’m not expecting. It’s especially surprising if the job seeker doesn’t currently have a job and is unemployed.

18. ‘Ghosts’ turn the tables on recruiters seeking prospects -

The number of companies reporting job search candidates ghosting them is on the rise.

Ghosting is a term typically used in dating. It happens when you’ve been dating and one of the people stops responding to all communication for no reason. They suddenly stop returning calls, texts or emails.

19. When are we going to close down the open office? -

I hear from many job seekers who have a concern about what they find once they’ve landed a new job. The problem’s not with their starting salary, health care or even vacation time. It’s the office setup.

20. It’s vacation time! But there's a good chance you won't take one -

A good vacation can be one of the most relaxing things you can do for yourself. Whether you prefer the beach, camping or grilling in your backyard, down time is something we all need.

Unfortunately, we’re not all getting our much-needed time to relax. Can you relate?

21. What got you here might not carry you any further -

Do you ever feel like you’re struggling to take your career to the next level? If so, you’re not alone.

Many of the job seekers I speak with each day are struggling with similar feelings. They haven’t received the achievements they expected to get by now.

22. Top Middle Tennessee residential sales for June 2018 -

Top residential real estate sales, June 2018, for Davidson, Williamson, Rutherford, Wilson and Sumner counties, as compiled by Chandler Reports.

23. Start at the top as you look for a new workplace -

It’s often said that employees quit bosses, not jobs. Can you relate?

If you’ve ever left a job, there’s a good chance you might agree with this idea.

If you’re looking for a new job, one of the first things to consider is the management for which you’ll be working. Finding the right environment is just as important – if not more so – than finding the perfect title.

24. How would you answer ‘how much do you make?’ -

Have you ever been asked, “How much do you make?” in a job interview? This question usually shows up during the first phone call.

You’ve applied online. The HR manager calls you. The conversation seems normal at first.

25. Trying for first real job? Here are some pitfalls to avoid -

Summer is an exciting time for young job seekers, especially new graduates searching for their first full-time job.

But there are many pitfalls you might encounter along the way. Here are a few suggestions to help you deal with them:

26. ‘Weak tie’ can be strongest link to your next job -

A job seeker recently came to me with a problem. They’d been looking everywhere for the right job and finally found it. It was just what they were looking for, and their skills were a perfect match.

27. This is a test: Indeed unveils new tools for 2018 -

I recently had the opportunity to attend Indeed Interactive, the annual conference where thousands of human resources professionals come together to learn about the latest updates to the website and to job seeking this year.

28. Easier to remove: social media post or a tattoo? -

Have you ever considered getting a tattoo? Or had a child ask you about getting one? If you have, you know it can be a tough decision.

Tattoos are permanent. They have a personal meaning that often ties back to your beliefs or your experiences.

29. Must success come at the expense of your co-workers? -

We all have bad days. Whether you woke up on the wrong side of the bed or someone cut you off on the way to work, it can make getting through the day difficult.

What can make it even more difficult is when we look at each moment as a competition to the top.

30. Top Middle Tennessee residential sales for April 2018 -

Top residential real estate sales, April 2018, for Davidson, Williamson, Rutherford, Wilson and Sumner counties, as compiled by Chandler Reports.

31. Afraid of leaving vacation days at old job? Fear not -

One of the No. 1 reasons people are hesitant to switch jobs is because of their vacation time.

They start with one or two weeks of vacation each year at their company. Then, as they stay at their job for a few years, more days are added. After a while, they may find they have earned four or five weeks of vacation per year.

32. Endless interview: Never stop looking for your next job -

One of the hardest things about looking for a new job is the fact that most people don’t start looking for a job until they need one. In other words, they’ve been fired or they hate their work situation so much that they’re ready to quit.

33. Talking to strangers is a good way to make new contacts -

If you’re like me, “Don’t talk to strangers” was a lesson taught early on by the adults in your life. You may have even heard the phrase, “stranger danger.”

The idea is that strangers can harm you in some way. Staying away from strangers kept you safe from kidnapping or something else bad.

34. Always have enough money to escape unhappy job environment -

I recently had the privilege of interviewing Margaret Heffernan, whose incredibly impressive career includes running five companies in the United States and the United Kingdom, being a college professor, authoring five books and giving multiple TED Talks. Originally from Texas, Margaret has lived all over, including in the U.K.

35. SXSW: Go for the music, movies, food, stay for the connections -

I recently had the opportunity to attend South by Southwest (sxsw.com) in Austin, Texas, for the first time.

If you’ve never been, SXSW is a giant festival in downtown Austin that draws in thousands of people. Founded in 1987, SXSW has boasted an economic impact to Austin of more than $300 million in past years.

36. Using transparency to build a diverse workforce -

Diversity is one of the most important issues companies are focused on today, with

LinkedIn recently finding that more than half of companies say they are very or extremely focused on diversity.

37. When, how should you ask your boss for more money? -

Who wouldn’t like to make more money? If you’ve read my column before, you probably know that I’m an advocate of changing companies every three to five years for many industries. On top of gaining extra experience, switching has the potential to bump up your pay considerably.

38. Digital marketing careers require constant evolution -

Digital marketing is a hot field and has been hot for more than 10 years. I rarely share much about how to move into the field of digital marketing. However, I get many questions about it because a large part of my career was spent as a digital marketer.

39. 4 secrets recruiters might not tell you -

Applying for a job seems like a fair process. You apply online and, if you’re a good fit for the job, the company will give you a call.

You’ll then go in person for an interview and show your expertise. The company will then carefully choose the most-qualified candidate.

40. To share or not to share: Getting tired of social networks -

Social media used to be so fun. We could all stay connected with friends and family around the world. And it felt like social media was expanding our friend circles.

For example, I have reconnected with friends that date back to kindergarten. Before the internet, this would have been much more difficult.

41. Treating employees with a little dignity -

Part of my job is to work with professionals who have recently become unemployed. It’s incredible how many people are impacted by layoffs each day. Often, the person was let go due to something outside of their control.

42. What’s the ROI of your college education? -

College is expensive; private college is even more so. My undergraduate school is now charging approximately $50,000 per year, just for tuition.

Assuming you’re paying out of pocket, that’s $200,000 for a four-year degree, not including room and board.

43. Have you and your job lost that loving feeling? -

The month of love is upon us again. Happy Valentine’s Week! It always happens just after we create our latest New Year’s resolutions, and we’re often still thinking about career goals and future plans.

44. Workplace diversity gains momentum -

The biggest game changer in the hiring space this year will be diversity, according to LinkedIn’s 2018 Global Recruiting Trends report, in which 9,000 recruiters and hiring managers from around the world expressed opinions.

45. People hire people: Online applications not enough -

If you’re looking for a job, there’s a good chance you’re applying online. And chances are good that applying online is your go-to option. It makes sense.

The last time you reached out to a HR person at a job fair or on LinkedIn (or anywhere else), they said, “Apply online. If you’re a good fit, we’ll call you!” They may even have said, “Don’t reach out to us. We review every application carefully.”

46. Middle Tennessee's $1M-plus residential transactions for 2017 -

There were 735 homes selling for $1 million or more in Davidson, Williamson, Rutherford, Sumner and Wilson counties in 2017, according to Chandler Reports.

Davidson County had the most with 386, followed by Williamson (316), Sumner (21), Wilson (10) and Rutherford (2).

47. Job seeking: Why keep it a secret? -

In the age of oversharing online, it seems searching for a job is one of the last topics anyone wants to share.

The world’s largest job site, Indeed.com, recently commissioned a study by Censuswide, surveying 10,000 job seekers in the U.S., Australia, Belgium, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom.

48. Don’t stay stuck in the same old job -

If 2017 left you feeling disappointed at work, today is the perfect day to start turning things around for 2018.

How many times did you think the following to yourself?: “If only I work a little harder, my boss will recognize my value. Next year, I really will get a decent raise and a promotion. I’m really not happy, but I have no other choice.”

49. Interviewing just like it’s a first date -

Interviewing for a job is a nerve-racking process. When else do we want others to judge us? We spend so much time preparing – finding the perfect clothes, organizing our resume, and sneaking out of our job. We ask for recommendations from our old bosses.

50. Bah Humbug: Laid off before the holidays -

I hate to admit this, but I have seen more people let go this holiday season than in years past. It’s a sad and stressful situation.

As employers approach the end of the year, they re-evaluated their priorities and made business decisions to reorganize. The shift in structure left many people without jobs.

51. The best places to work in 2018 -

For the 10th year, Glassdoor.com has released its Employees’ Choice Awards. For 2018, they’ve expanded the list of best companies from 50 to 100.

52. Top Middle Tennessee residential sales for November 2017 -

Top residential real estate sales, November 2017, for Davidson, Williamson, Rutherford, Wilson and Sumner counties, as compiled by Chandler Reports.

53. Make the most of holiday parties -

We’ve all been there. There’s a company holiday party you’d rather not attend – or maybe your next-door neighbors are throwing an event that you just can’t avoid. Whatever the occasion, these parties can be draining during the holidays.

54. The importance of thanks to interviewers -

The holidays are here again. Along with the turkey, stuffing and loved ones, there’s more to consider. This season is a time of giving thanks.

One of the topics I’m often asked to speak about is personal branding. And part of your personal brand comes across in the way you thank others.

55. Your biggest weakness? Hope it’s not unpreparedness -

“What is your biggest weakness?” continues to be one of the favorite interview questions of hiring managers. This is a tough question all the way around.

If you are too honest, you may eliminate yourself from consideration and not get the job at all. But if you’re not honest enough, you may come across as evasive.

56. Don’t overlook company reviews -

Being happy at work is an essential part of career fulfillment. But sometimes, it seems we spend more time researching where to eat the best hamburger than where to work.

Much like skipping restaurant reviews, failing to research a company can come back to burn you. The good news is you no longer have to know someone personally to get the scoop on a company.

57. Increasing your executive presence -

I recently had the honor of speaking on the topic of executive presence – not just once, but twice.

I participated in panels discussing the importance of executive presence to your career and another on how to increase your executive presence.

58. Using social media in your job search -

Social media isn't part of a job search. You only need a resume, business cards and a nice suit to find a job, right? This was true when you were looking for a job in 2001.

Many more options are available to you in today's wired world. Why not try them?

59. Artificial intelligence targets white-collar jobs -

In the age of computers, the way we do business is changing at a record pace. Some change is good. But, inevitably, some is also quite painful.

One concern many professionals have is whether or not their job may be replaced by a robot.

60. Top Middle Tennessee residential transactions for September 2017 -

Top residential real estate sales, September 2017, for Williamson, Rutherford, Wilson and Sumner counties, as compiled by Chandler Reports. Due to technical issues, Davidson County sales are unavailable for September.

61. Talent Insights: LinkedIn’s helpful hiring platform -

The hiring landscape is continuously being reshaped by the internet and the increasing data available to employers.

On Oct. 4 in Nashville, LinkedIn.com unveiled its latest human resources product offering: LinkedIn Talent Insights. It will most likely impact how you, the job seeker, experiences the hiring process.

62. Avoid becoming trapped in your job -

One of the worst feelings you can have at work is being trapped with no way out. I meet professionals every day who feel chained to their job, who are very often in unhealthy situations that make them miserable each and every day.

63. Best time to find a job is when you have one -

Have you ever received a call from a headhunter or recruiter out of the blue? Sometimes, they’ll call your work phone and leave a voicemail you weren’t expecting. They’re recruiting for a new position. It’s one you haven’t heard about, but they want to speak to you.

64. Should your resume include a photo? Not really -

Recently, I began receiving a question I haven’t heard much before: “Should I put my photo on my resume?”

It’s a great question. And if you’ve wondered the same thing, you’re not alone.

65. Pay attention to signs it’s time to go -

Job seekers often struggle with the idea of when to leave. We may feel that it makes no sense to leave one good job for another, and this can make sense in certain situations.

However, it’s best to pay attention when the writing is on the wall.

66. How can you help hopeless job seeker? -

If you have a job seeker in your life, there’s a decent chance you’re concerned about them. This is especially true if they are currently unemployed.

They’re upset. You feel upset. You may secretly wonder what they’re doing wrong and what you can do to help.

67. 3 job search tips for the introvert -

I have to confess that I’m an introvert. People I’ve met in person are often surprised by this little-known fact. They assume that public speaking and networking skills equate to extroversion.

68. Top Middle Tennessee commercial transactions for July 2017 -

Top commercial real estate sales, July 2017, for Davidson, Williamson, Rutherford, Wilson and Sumner counties, as compiled by Chandler Reports.

69. How long should your job search take? That depends -

One of the top questions I hear from job seekers is: “How long should my job search really take?”

It’s a good question. Knowing what’s “normal” can help you to know whether you’re winning or losing at this game we call the job search.

70. Is your resume being ignored? It might not be you -

I think we can all agree the job search process can be grueling.

If you’re actively looking for a job, you know you often apply online and never hear back. Or, maybe you go through rounds of interviews that lead nowhere.

71. A little advice to my younger self -

Two interesting things have happened in the past week. First, I was asked the question: “What advice would you give your younger self?” Then, I attended my high school reunion.

Walking through the halls of my old high school brought back memories of where it all started. Needless to say, both moments made me think about the past and what advice I would give a young person today.

72. McDonald’s recruits employees using Snapchat -

When most job seekers think of using social media to apply for a new job, they think of networking website LinkedIn. Now, McDonald’s and Snapchat recently pushed the boundaries of recruiting.

73. Top Midstate residential transactions for second quarter 2017 -

Top residential real estate sales, second quarter 2017, for Davidson, Williamson, Rutherford, Wilson and Sumner counties, as compiled by Chandler Reports.

74. After-school job vs. resume building: What's better for teens -

A reader recently wrote me seeking advice on how his teenage daughter might find an after-school job for her high school years.

His logic makes sense. He wants her to learn discipline and to gain a work ethic. These are great qualities for a young student to develop.

75. Top Middle Tennessee residential transactions for June 2017 -

Top residential real estate sales, June 2017, for Davidson, Williamson, Rutherford, Wilson and Sumner counties, as compiled by Chandler Reports.

76. How to deal with workplace bullies -

Growing up, it seemed like one of the perks of being an adult was a lack of bullies. After all, bullying stops after high school graduation, right?

Unfortunately, this isn’t always the case. A few bullies sneak through life without giving up their bullying ways. Often, these meanies resurface at work, making your eight hours there much less rewarding.

77. They told you it wasn’t personal. Just go with that -

A reader recently wrote to me with a unique situation. They landed an impressive contract position, and everything was going along great for 11 months until they were suddenly let go.

The company laid off a large number of people all at the same time. After soliciting feedback, the reader was given a good review and sent on their way.

78. Breaking the rules and finding your perfect job -

Sometimes in your career, things don’t always work out the way you plan them. I first learned this lesson in college. I went to one of those fancy, private schools to study computer engineering in the late 90s.

79. 3 tips for getting a win at your next job interview -

Interviewing is hard work. If you’re looking for something new, you know that finding a job is a job.

From preparing your favorite suit to revising your resume to networking and rounds of interviews – there are times it feels like it will never end.

80. Path to job candidate’s heart isn’t always paved with cash -

I recently had the opportunity to travel to Austin to meet a number of folks who work at the job website Indeed.com. If you’ve looked for a job in the last 10 years, there’s a good chance you’ve visited Indeed.

81. Employers should remember how job searchers feel -

Typically, this column is targeted toward the job seeker. Today, I’m going to take a slightly different approach.

I’ve received the same question from multiple employers in the past week: “How can I hire better candidates?”

82. It's OK to say no to a job you don't really want -

OK, this is going to sound strange, but bear with me.

After coaching hundreds of folks on their job searches, I’ve noticed a pattern. And it’s not one I would have expected.

What’s one of our No. 1 fears when it comes to searching for a job? It’s actually that we will get the job. That’s right. We are afraid of being offered a job.

83. Ask questions of hiring manager when given the chance -

Sometimes, getting a job is dependent more on what you ask than what you answer. We spend so much time preparing for how we will answer the hiring manager’s questions but very little time thinking about what we want to know.

84. Don’t forget to say thank you. It’s free -

How many times have you heard, “Don’t forget to say thank you?” When we were children, adults reiterated it over and over again. Yet, somehow, as adults, we are forgetting this simple lesson.

85. First-job gap: Skills vs. requirements -

You’ve made it through four years of college. Now what? Getting your first job after graduation can feel like a daunting task. We have such high hopes of finding the perfect career quickly and easily – until we hit a wall. Based on a recent Wall Street Journal piece, many college graduates can relate.

86. You didn’t get the job. What’s the best path forward? -

Being overlooked for a job is the worst. It’s especially bad after you’ve had a series of interviews. You took off work (multiple times), bought a new suit and updated your resume.

How could they reject you after all of that hard work?

87. There are limits to workplace loyalty -

Loyalty is an important quality. It’s what helps bind friendships and loved ones. It’s what holds teams together. But – dare I say it – there are limits to loyalty.

Many of us were taught to be loyal to our companies. To some degree, this makes a lot of sense.

88. Your career path will take many unexpected turns -

The job market often offers twists and turns you’d never expect. My first twist happened during college.

I grew up in the ’90s, along with the internet. Companies like AOL were just starting.

89. Newfound respect for those who must practice their craft -

Things move fast in the business world. You write a business proposal, seek approval and move on to your next project.

Efficiency is key in business. Move fast. Waste little time. Produce as much output as possible.

90. Is college worth the investment? -

I’ve met a number of people lately who have said something that’s surprised me, that they aren’t sure if college is really worth it.

They believe it would be a waste of money to pay for something they might never use, especially if they change their mind on their career path later.

91. Prioritizing time to find next job -

When you’re truly unhappy in your current job, a new one can’t get here fast enough. Having to drag yourself to the office each day can be the worst.

When you’re caught up in the emotion of it all, you begin to wonder why you don’t have a new job yet. Is it a problem with your resume, your cover letter or your LinkedIn? Panic and frustration begins to set in as each day goes by.

92. Not getting that promotion? Might be time to leave -

Today’s job market is tough. If you’re trying to find a new job – or get a promotion at your current job – you can probably relate.

One of the most frustrating things, if not the most frustrating, is when your current boss is overlooking you.

93. Top Middle Tennessee residential transactions for February 2017 -

Top residential real estate sales, February 2017, for Davidson, Williamson, Rutherford, Wilson and Sumner counties, as compiled by Chandler Reports.

94. Where are you getting stuck in your job search? -

Whenever I meet with a new job seeker, I always ask the same question: “Where are you getting stuck in your search?” It sounds like a simple question, but it can shed quite a bit of light into what’s going on.

95. Dealing with opposing political views at work -

2017 has certainly started off on an interesting foot. I don’t know about you, but social media used to be a relaxing activity where I learned about engagements, saw baby photos and watched cat videos.

96. Top Middle Tennessee residential transactions for January 2017 -

Top residential real estate sales, January 2017, for Davidson, Williamson, Rutherford, Wilson and Sumner counties, as compiled by Chandler Reports.

97. How to land a job you’ll love -

If you’re looking for a new job, I’ll bet one of your top two priorities is finding a job you really, truly love.

Somehow, you’ve found yourself at a job you don’t care for, and you’re ready to make a change. And, you hope to not wake up in another situation where you don’t like your job.

98. Is spending keeping you in job you hate? -

As you grow in your career, finding a new job can become harder and harder. One of the big reasons for this has to do with salary.

If you think about it, you were open to just about any job when you first started working and would happily take a tiny paycheck. But requirements evolved as you’ve progressed in your career.

99. Overcoming past legal issues while looking for a job -

Questions around past legal trouble have come up multiple times recently, so it’s worth addressing.

A reader writes: “I’m a job seeker with a felony record and a college degree. I can’t expunge the record, and I’m not sure what to do. Where should I begin?”

100. The real reason a company doesn’t return your interest -

Interviewing for a job is an incredibly personal process – at least for the job seeker.

If you’re looking for a new job, you know the frustration when a company doesn’t call you back. It stings like rejection. It can leave you reeling and wondering what’s wrong with you.
