What is the key to getting my resume noticed along with a good number of job interviews?

Alfred Mariani, October 17 2022

I have been in this field for 30 years and I am still amazed at the number of weak resumes I see. Over 90% of our clients create resumes that look like a job description vs a marketing piece.  This doesn't surprise me since job seekers don't specialize in resume writing. A resume has to be a marketing piece where ordinary language is converted...

Are we on the verge of a civil war?

Christopher Mariani, October 4 2022

I keep hearing talk about a civil war, and I am hearing it more frequently than I care to hear it. A civil war would surely end this great republic to everyone's demise.

A great philosopher once stated that the greatest threat to a society is ignorance. We are at a point in our society where intellectual curiosity and the quest for knowledge are on the decline.

Everyone needs a career partner:

Defining the ideal career coach:

Inflation, inflation, inflation...

Christopher Mariani, September 22 2022

I must admit that I am getting mixed signals. The Fed keeps raising interest rates, but then we are printing billions of dollars that we don't have, which will devalue our currency. We want to avoid a recession, but higher interest rates will hurt the housing industry which is 15-18% of GDP, and we are already seeing layoffs in the mortgage industr...
