Sunday Night Blues? Deciding If It's Time to Move On
by Joan Lloyd
Do you have the Sunday night blues? You know...that dread in your gut about going to work the next day? Most people have experienced the bummed out feeling that comes at the end of the weekend. But if your dread is a regular depression, it's time to do some re-thinking about your job.
Making the Most of Your References
Because "References provided upon request" appears at the end of your resume it may seem like an afterthought. After all, potential employers only check references when they are ready to make you an offer and your past employers are expected to say good things about you. Acting cavalier toward your references is a mistake you can't afford to make. References are the final step in the selection process where you want to end on a high note without stumbling or giving people a negative impression.

Q. My rep called me about an assignment while I was out shopping. It couldn't have been more than 30 minutes, but when I called back, somebody else already had the job. Do you really fill positions that fast?
A. Absolutely. While direct hire opportunities and especially positions with specific and unique requirements may take a little longer to fill, most positions will be filled in considerably less than 30 minutes. Since you don't want to miss any opportunities, if you have a cell phone on which you can be reached more consistently, it's a good idea to make sure that your Account Executive has that number listed as your primary number.
