Are Curated Online Talent Platforms Running Recruiters Out of Business?

by: MARK FROMSON Curated online talent platforms are on the rise. Frustrated with behemoth job boards like LinkedIn and Indeed, many job seekers are now turning to talent platforms tailored to their specific industry or role. At the same time, companies are increasingly utilizing these niche talent platforms in order to find the specific talent they need far more quickly than they could on larger job sites.

As Banking Jobs Shift to Infrastructure and Tech, Job Seekers Need New Skills to Keep Up

by: DAN BLACHARSKI  Getting a job at a bank used to be seen as a wise career move and an easy path for anyone with a business degree. For those without degrees, a job as a bank teller still carried high status and decent pay. While these jobs required some business skills, they were mostly high-touch roles centered on customer service. Today, your friendly teller has been replaced by an ATM, and your loan officer is an automated bot inside a smartphone app. Jobs in banking aren’t going to disappear any time soon, but they will change form. Instead of sitting at a desk

4 Ways to Earn Income in While You’re Waiting to Get Hired

JOHN STEVENS   You just got out of college, and now you’re looking for a job. You were told all throughout your childhood that the key to success is to “go to school, get good grades, and get a job.” So you did exactly that – only to find out upon graduating that the reality is not that simple. No matter how good your grades are, you’re highly unlikely to get a job immediately after graduating college. According to some sources, it takes the average college graduate up to nine months to get a job. It doesn’t help that, in the meantime,

How You Can Improve Your Interview Success Rate With a Thank-You Letter

by: KAZIM LADIMEJI In this age of bleeding-edge, social media-based job-search techniques, it can be easy to overlook some of the more traditional strategies. That’s a shame, because these techniques are often very effective, even if they do seem unfashionable. The thank-you note is one such old-school technique that many employers respond favorably to. In fact, according to an Accountemps survey, 59 percent of recruiters said thank-you notes were “very helpful” for candidates, and 32 percent said it was “somewhat helpful.” It seem

So You Didn't Get the Job – That Doesn't Mean Your Relationship With the Company Needs to End

ANGELA COPELAND  You attended a series of interviews. You took time off of work. You bought a new suit. And you didn’t get the job. After all that hard work, rejection stings especially badly. It’s pretty awful when a company puts you through the ringer just to toss you aside in the end. Sometimes, they don’t even notify you. They aren’t shopping for a new pair of shoes. You’re a person, and they should treat you like one. What do you do once you’ve been rejected? If you’re like most people, you stay as far away from the compa

To Find Diamonds in the Rough, Look at Abilities, Not Resumes

by: JOSH MILLET In 2009, programmer Brian Acton applied for positions at Facebook and Twitter and was passed over. Five years later, he sold his startup, WhatsApp, for $19 billion. What happened in between those two events? Two critical moments occurred. First, Acton got an iPhone and had an idea for an app that represented a new market with unlimited potential. Second, he decided to put his time and energy into a startup. Looking back now, it seems absurd that any major tech company would pass over a clear innovator like Acton, but that’s exactly what happened –

Starting Your First Job? How to Stay Organized and Sane

by MELINDA PRICE Like many other young professionals, I have a jam-packed schedule. A typical week for me consists of working at my 9-to-5 job, volunteering at two nonprofits, happy hours and hikes with friends, networking at professional events , getting in some “me” time, and even doing some contract work. And I love this pace, but when I first made the transition from college to working world, I found that balancing a new job, a personal life, and a new city—and staying happy doing it—was a pretty big challenge. Sure, I did a lot in undergrad, too, but t

10 Ways to Build Your Mental Strength

Article by Amy Morin Developing mental strength takes conscious effort, dedication, and daily practice. Start with these 10 exercises to work out your mental muscles: 1. Establish Goals The human brain is naturally predisposed to reach for and achieve goals. Don’t just set one big goal, like “I want to lose 50 pounds.” Set more manageable short-term goals, too, such as “I want to work for 30 minutes without checking my phone” or “I want to reply to all of my emails by noon today.” With each goal you achieve, you’ll gain more confi

Your Career Path Will Be Full of Twists and Turns – and That's a Good Thing

by: ANGELA COPELAND The job market is full of twists and turns you’d never expect. I faced my first twist during college. I grew up in the ’90s alongside the internet. Companies like AOL were just starting out. With a “fast” dial-up modem, you could connect to the web through your phone line. It was just the sort of thing a teenager dying to go to college out of state needed. It was an exciting time. Everything and everyone suddenly seemed magically intertwined in a new way. Startups were popping up everywhere. Young people were getting investments to
