Charlie Sheen Eligible for Unemployment?

I’ve been watching the Charlie Sheen media storm like many of you I woke up today to hear he broke the Guinness Book of World Records for the fastest time for reaching 1 million followers on Twitter – he did it in just over 25 hours. Move over Ashton Kutcher and Oprah, there’s a new tweeter in town – and he’s a bad boy! What if Charlie was YOUR career coach, America? I have a million questions I’d like to ask Charlie Sheen from a career coaching perspective. I’m not judging here – I’m honestly fascinated. Most of us will never have his fame or be in his situation – we can’t begin to understand his professional and personal life. So, it poses some very thought-provoking questions. Here are the top 10 questions I’d ask when he joins us on our new social TV show, Career Reality.
  1. Do you plan to file for unemployment?
  2. How do you feel about all the people who lost their jobs because of you?
  3. What advice would you give the 14 million people who are out of work right now and don’t have your personal brand or money to tide them over until they find a new gig?
  4. What would you tell the four million people who have been out of work for over two years and are now struggling to get employers to take them seriously?
  5. Do you believe in typecasting as a career move?
  6. What does it take to survive what you are going through?
  7. What does a typical day in your life look like right now since you are unemployed?
  8. Do you think career and personal life should be separate?
  9. Whose job and life would you want if you couldn’t be you anymore?
  10. What are you looking for in your next job/career?
Charlie, if you are reading this, then join us this Friday, at 1:00 PM ET, so we can Skype you in and get your answers first-hand to the questions above. For the rest of you, tell us your thoughts in the comments below.

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...
