Career Corner: A Deeper Look at Ghosting

By Angela Copeland There’s been a lot in the news about ghosting lately. Job seekers aren’t showing up to interviews. And, they’re not coming to work on their first day – all with no notice.

Don’t Fool Yourself

By Angela Copeland I can’t say this enough times. The job market is excellent! It’s the strongest job market we’ve seen in fifty years. Fifty years! Lately, there have been more open jobs than people looking for a job. The national unemployment rate has dropped below 3.8 percent. That’s pretty incredible. With this said, I…

By Angela Copeland If you’re like most people, there was a time when you were under-qualified for a job. This is typically the case when you apply for your first job or when you make a big career change midstream. At some point, you didn’t meet all of the requirements of a job description you…

Career Corner: Trouble Finding Candidates? Try This

By Angela Copeland I read articles about candidates who are ghosting employers. They’re not showing up to interviews. They’re not showing up on their first day. They’re disappearing and employers are frustrated. On top of the ghosting phenomenon, employers can’t seem to find enough qualified candidates. It’s like there just aren’t any good people left….

Career Corner: It’s Not Personal

By Angela Copeland Job searching is one of the most personal impersonal experiences there is. As a job seeker, you pour your heart into your cover letter. You customize your resume. You sit in agony at each step of the process, which can drag out for many months. Along the way, you may encounter many…

Career Corner: Cutting The Cord

By Angela Copeland I could write a book about the information I’m about to share. If you’re a parent with an adult child, this is for you. Before I go too far, let me say this: I know you love your child. I know you want them to do well and when they’re struggling you…

Career Corner: My New Pet Peeve

By Angela Copeland There’s this thing that happens when you see something unexpected. You just can’t unsee it. Once you know, there’s no turning back. That happened for me one year ago. I’ve tried to push it out of my mind, but I just can’t any longer. Professionals on LinkedIn are posting some very unprofessional…
