Never have an e-mail go unanswered again. Get your e-mails read with these simple rules.
It’s a constant battle to keep up with the deluge of e-mails inundating my inbox on a regular basis. Between my online publications, social media alerts, and the god-forsaken spam e-mail, it’s a wonder I’m ever able to find and respond to the e-mails that matter most.
Your head shot should add value to your profile. Fix these common mistakes to get it on the right track.
In today’s marketplace, it’s not enough to have a well-written resume and a list of great referrals; it’s essential for every job seeker to develop and actively monitor their online professional brand.
While a photo on your resume is still considered taboo, recruiters have come to expect a picture to accompany your online professional profiles. In fact, your LinkedIn profile is 40 percent more likely to get clicked on if it contains an image. Here at TheLadders, we also encourage our members to upload a profile picture.
A lot of great things were accomplished during the Brooklyn Tech Triangle Internship Program (BTTIP) over the summer of 2014. Many new relationships were formed, a great deal of real-world projects were completed, young professionals (and a couple of seasoned players) grew and became more immersed in their respective disciplines, a few shells were broken out of, a few new journeys began, and tons of free food was eaten. A huge part of this came courtesy of BTTIP. The program was a great success and instrumental in helping all of the interns get a step closer to their career goals.
BTTIP provided me with clearer professional possibilities and choices. Experiencing and learning about startup work culture has impacted not only the type of learning environment I want to be a part of, but also the type of work I want to be associated with.
Thank you to everyone and everything who made this summer possible; Toryl, Shayna, BNY, SBS, Enstitute, City Tech, all the companies we paid site visits to, BRIC Arts, everyone who came to the graduation ceremony, all the wonderful host companies where we all interned, BTTIP alumni, and to the summer 2014 cohort!
P.S. Toryl, you are a 1 of 1. We will all miss you.
Jump-start your fall job search with a fresh way to network.
As much as I hate to admit, fall is just around the corner. If you took some time off from your job search this summer, it’s time to gear up for a productive September!
The easiest way to get back in your job-hunting groove is to give your network some much-needed attention. When leveraged properly, your network can help you establish your personal brand, uncover new job leads, and gain valuable insight into a prospective employer.
