  The dreaded compensation conversation: When is it time to suck it up regarding salary?
by Hallie Crawford - Sep, 2013
I was excited to be interviewed for a recent article about the compensation conversation. I always get questions about compensation from my clients who are in career transition and wanting to know for their career planning purposes – “Am I going to have to take a cut in salary to move into my dream job?” First, a couple of notes about discussing compensation during the interview process. I spoke with a career coaching clie...
 
  Quick resume advice: Read it backwards
by Hallie Crawford - Aug, 2013
I was talking to my career book editor, Anne, the other day. As a professional writer she has helped many people with their resume writing over the years. We were working on the portion of my book (coming in early 2014, I’m very excited!) regarding resume advice and we were brainstorming tips that you don’t hear every day regarding your resume update. One of her suggestions, was after you have edited your resume and you ha...
 
  Don’t let bad credit get in the way of your job search
by Hallie Crawford - Jan, 2013
I was recently honored to be featured in this US News article, How to Convince a Prospective Employer to Overlook Poor Credit. There are many obstacles people have to overcome when applying for job search and bad credit is a common concern among job seekers. A potential employer cannot check it without your consent, but this could be seen as a red flag and decrease your chances of getting hired. You’re better off consentin...
 
  Everything but the kitchen sink in your resume
by Hallie Crawford - Dec, 2012
Many people want to include everything they have done on their resume. Whether it’s their first job, details of every position they’ve had, or even where they attended high school. This can be overkill. You only want to highlight relevant experience because you may lose the recruiter or the employer who is looking at your resume. Don’t get lost in the shuffle. It isn’t important to go back to what high school you attended...

  Watch what you say at work, but be yourself
by Hallie Crawford - Dec, 2012
I was excited to be interviewed for this article a few weeks ago about talking politics at work, Political discretion advised. It has some good advice to check out from everyone interviewed that I think we should all keep in mind. It takes a balance between watching what you say at work, always remembering that you are ‘on’, and being yourself. It’s critical to feel like you can be authentic at work, so don’t go to the oth...
 
  10 Tips to Help You Retire Without an Identity Crisis
by Hallie Crawford - Dec, 2012
If you are still in the world of gainful employment, you probably think you are too busy to think about retirement – after all, it is 3-7 years out. Or, you may be thinking you can just figure it out when you retire because you will have all the time in the world then. But be careful. That thinking can get you into trouble… and unexpectedly create an identity crisis down the line! Whether you are pushed out of your job, or...

by Hallie Crawford - Nov, 2012
With any change in your life, including a professional change, there is loss – even if the change is good. And loss must be grieved so you can leave the ‘old’ behind and move into the ‘new’ in a healthy way. Keep this in mind when change happens to you in your career, as well as in your personal life. Career transitions can have a big impact on us because our jobs can be such a big part of our lives. So be pro-active and...
 
  Top 5 tips for your resume
by Hallie Crawford - Nov, 2012
Are you lost and unsure about your resume or cover letter? Here are 5 things to keep in mind when writing your resume: 1. Keep it short – Keep it at two pages or less. Most people hiring prefer one page, but two pages is okay if the content is appropriate. For example, someone who has had a longer career. 2. First Person Implied – As a rule, your resume should be written in first person implied. No, you don’t want to...

I had a great conversation with Jamie Harrison at Black Enterprise magazine recently.

This is a process that’s different for every individual, so keep that in mind. Here are some additional thoughts I wanted to share with you… 1) GET A JOB: As a college stu...
