79. Becoming a team player is vital to career success -

81. Quality resume opens doors, improves pay -

You have only a few tools to help you land a good job, one being a resume. Not having the right one can cost you.

There are different approaches you can use to create a resume.

First, you can do it yourself. If you are a good writer this may be a good option. But don’t try and do it without research.

82. Negotiating pay, perks can be tricky business -

One of the more difficult issues facing job seekers is how to negotiate a compensation package after a position has been offered. There is little room for discussion with some employers, while others are open to some give and take. Understanding negotiations can prevent the process from becoming a barrier between you and the job you want.

83. Keeping skills current makes you marketable -

Keeping up with the latest trends and developments in your field is more important than ever during these difficult economic times, especially if you are looking for a job.

Managers want their new hires to be on top of what is happening within their area of expertise. They want to feel comfortable their employees are the most knowledgeable and, thus, capable of keeping them ahead of the competition.

84. Drop the tie? Not if you want to look professional -

Seems some businessmen are abandoning ties. I think it is a mistake. The look of no tie and open collar looks unprofessional and reduces confidence. It looks like something is missing – which may be your image.

85. Knowing what to spotlight is key to good resume -

When writing your resume, selecting the best examples of what you have done in your experiences and career and placing them in a short, concise space takes a lot of time and thought.

Second guessing your selections is a frequent result. So, what are some of the better ways to choose your very best activities and accomplishments?

86. Unprecented times call for unprecedented tactics -

There are small businesses that could use boosting, and unemployed talent on the sidelines. Seems like a natural match except nobody knows who can do what and: a) employers don’t have the working capital to experiment with new hires; b) job hunters do not know where the openings are to apply to; or c) both parties are looking but don’t like what they see. Folks also are worn down from job hunting.

87. Be ready, you might be fired any day now -

You’re an excellent employee with great performance reviews and always on time. The new boss calls you in to his office with a supervisor sitting in a chair next to the one reserved for you. You sit down.

88. When offered a choice, go with resume instead of application -

When applying for a position, job seekers often are presented with the choice of an application and submitting a resume. Having an option might seem like a great opportunity, but really it is an opportunity to make the wrong decision.

89. A little creativity can go a long way in workplace -

Use your creativity to get a new job or a better position with your present employer.

Not everyone has the ability to be creative at work. If you are one of the lucky individuals who have some form of creativity, don’t assume that everyone else has the same attribute. And don’t assume that those around you at work have the same creative ability.

90. Get ‘motivated’ to write a resume that stands above others -

When writing your resume, consider that many other candidates applying for the same job might be making similar claims and using the same words you are.

Instead of being another applicant that just fits the job profile, try to be a little smarter. Revitalize your application with a review-and-improve effort of your resume when you apply for your next position. Make sure you stand out.

91. Want to live at the beach? Train for job to match locale -

Where you want to live should influence the type of career and industry you are considering.

Certain jobs tend to be located in specific cities and regions of the country. Other jobs can be found throughout the country in urban and non-urban locations. The ease of finding a job you desire can be quite specific to the occupation or industry you select for a career.

92. Pick up that phone! Internet, snail mail not always enough -

The Internet is the way to look for a job and converse with hiring managers. To deal with employers, you need only send them an e-resume and converse with them through e-mail. Correct? Wrong! Don’t forget the phone.

93. Adapting to change no longer an option -

In the 1970s, a book titled Future Shock described a world of rapid change with consequential impact on everyone and everything. That world is now here in ways the author could never have imagined.
