Casting Call: Would You Participate in 'Career Rehab'?

We are gearing up to produce several new web tv shows designed to help people with all aspects of their career. One of the first shows we’ll be launching is called, Career Rehab. Think Shark Tank for your career. The show will have three career experts providing job seekers with brutally honest assessments as to what they are doing wrong. Contestants will have to be willing to:
  • Open up and share their career story by e-mail or short video.
  • Provide their resume, LinkedIn profile, and a recent cover letter sent to a job opening in advance of the show for the experts to review.
Only the participant’s first name will be used during the show and they will have the option to phone in as opposed to be on camera. The goal is to give participants some hard-hitting advice, as well as some constructive encouragement. In return, participants will win a free 30-minute coaching session with a career coach and a full year’s membership to CareerHMO ($300+ value). My question is... [poll id="21"] Tell us why! Now, please share why you would or wouldn’t want to be on Career Rehab in the comments below. We want to hear your thoughts. And, if you have any ideas for additional shows, we’d like to hear those too! Yes and no buttons image from Shutterstock

If you saw our first video, you might have heard about the awkward situation one of our viewers, Diane submitted. She has recently worked with a co-worker on a group project. When it came time to present the project at a meeting, Diane let her co-worker present. While it went great, the co-worker proceed to take credit for nearly all of Diane's work. Frustrating to say the least!

Starting a family is one of the biggest milestones in a person's life. It's in those first few months when a parent can really bond with their newborn and make lifelong memories. However, for some new dads, it can be difficult to juggle being a new parent while remaining dedicated to their career.

Fortunately, some companies have generous paternity leave policies that give new dads the ability to take time off of work to stay home with their child.

There are LOTS of questions around resume dos and don'ts. There's so much advice out there that it can be overwhelming to try and figure out what's the correct answer.

During our weekly live Office Hours on YouTube, two of our coaches, Ariella Coombs and J.T. O'Donnell, answer questions live from viewers related to their job search, career success, on the job situations and more.

We complied a simple list of what we find to be the most common questions our coaches get about resumes. We hope you find this helpful.

Let's start with the basics...
