Win Career Prizes From Us On Twitter!

By J.T. O'Donnell I was just in the middle of planning a contest for our site and was thinking, "Wow, I wish I could hold a contest on Twitter." And then of course, the leading authority on all things social media related , Mashable.com, sent me information about Twittaways.com - a way for me to pick random winners from Twitter followers who enter my contest. So, here's how it's going to work: 1) I'll post on Twitter the item we are giving away in the morning. 2) Followers RT the message to all their followers which automatically enters them to win. 3) We'll pick the winner at 8PM EST that night and post it. It's that easy! What's up for grabs? Well, to start, I'll be giving away free private hour-long career consult by phone ($130 value). I'll look at your resume, discuss your career situation, and help you with your gameplan to increase your chances of getting interviews and offers. But I'm hoping the word will catch on and some others will donate items to be given away. So, if you have or know someone who has something to donate - let me know! And of course, if you have any questions (or want to donate an item), e-mail us at twitter@workitdaily.com.

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...
