Job search tales: Ask not for help in your job search, ask what you can do to help

In this episode of “Tales from the job search trenches“, Kevin Kermes explains that today’s challenging employment market requires a different approach by job seekers. Candidates need to find activities which allow them to both demonstrate their skills, learn, and network at the same time. Offering free advice, and help, to companies you are interested in working for can build those relationships you will need to get your job. Don’t just send a resume asking for a job, tell people how you are going to help them. (download mp3) or play live:

Job search tales: Your next job may be with your ex-employer

Here’s a new show we’re checking out;

In this episode of “Tales from the job search trenches”, Jennifer Ellis explains how companies such as Microsoft often like hiring alumni to fill new openings. Job seekers should consider their previous employers as places to work, and ex-employers often value the knowledge of the business, and organizations, that they bring to the table. Better still, the connections that alumni have with their ex-employers give them a distinct advantage over other applicants. Jennifer also offers tips for how alumni, who have been through lay-offs or other difficult situations, when leaving their previous employers can get in a healthy mental state before applying for new jobs.
