Networking Is Not Working by Derek Coburn

Networking Is Not Working by Derek Coburn

Over the last few decades, networking has devolved into an endless series of cattle call events full of open bars and closed fists. Perfect strangers, after a long day at the office, agree to show up and bump into each other, randomly exchanging business pitches for business cards.

Needless to say, traditional networking isn’t working anymore. For successful 21st century business people, large networking events and the mountains of business cards they produce have become a waste of time and valuable resources. It’s time for a new, modern approach to networking.

Born out of author Derek Coburn’s frustration with having spent thousands of fruitless hours attending traditional networking events, this book offers fresh, effective, unconventional strategies for growing and nurturing a powerful network. These strategies grew Coburn’s revenue by 300% in just 18 months and can have a major impact on your business.

You will learn how to:
– Become the Ultimate Connector
– Become the Ultimate Resource
– Identify and develop relationships with world-class professionals
– Enhance the value you deliver for your best clients
– Position yourself for more quality introductions to ideal prospective clients

Once you implement the networking strategies in this book, the quality of your clients, your business, and your life will improve dramatically.

Heroes Get Hired: How To Use Your Military Experience to Master the Interview by Michelle Tillis Lederman

“Our returning troops and their family members can offer an extraordinary combination of leadership, dedication and technical expertise in today’s civilian workplace. The information and advice contained in this book is designed to prepare our service members to successfully make the transition from active-duty service to a meaningful job here at home.” –Michael E. O’Neill, Chairman, Citigroup Inc.,First Lieutenant, U.S. Marine Corps, 1969-1971

Going back to work after being in the military can be a daunting yet rewarding experience. As a veteran re-entering the workforce or looking to change jobs, you may face a unique set of challenges as you become accustomed to civilian situations, expectations, and demands. Your recent experiences may be very different from those of the average civilian candidate. This is part of your advantage and what sets you apart from other candidates, but it also can contribute to these unique challenges.

As you go through the job-interview process, you may need to learn to align yourself with new protocols, environments, and codes of behavior. You may also be learning to adapt to civilian life with certain physical or invisible difficulties, such as hearing loss, that are the result of your military service.

In Heroes Get Hired: How to Use Your Military Experience to Master the Interview, author Michelle Tillis Lederman addresses the particular issues, questions, fears, and mental roadblocks that you as a veteran may encounter as you re-enter the civilian workforce, and how you can overcome these challenges to acquire the skills you need to excel at the interview process. Featuring contributions from IAVA and MSCCN, this free book sheds light on the specific strengths and competitive advantages that you as a veteran bring to the civilian workforce, and how you can make sure to communicate these qualities to a recruiter or potential employer.

This edition features a video message from Medal of Honor Recipient Col. Jack Jacobs, Ret., and 20 videos that demonstrate best conduct during the interview process.

It’s time to put aside any fears you may have and land your next job!

Heroes Get Hired is published and available free-of-charge thanks to the generous support of Citi. For more information on Citi’s support for military veterans and their families, visit

Develop a Vision for Your Job Search


Career Vision

by Gordon Walter

People head straight for problems when they fail to create a clear vision for their job search; fail to define important values; and fail to clearly know career expectations.  The term “vision” has become a haggard cliché.  It can mean everything or nothing.  It is often used to describe the high-level objectives leaders want to achieve within organizations, and other times it is actually a mission statement.  Often these are but slogans or lists of desired objectives or “values” that are put in a file drawer, but do not impact behaviors and attitudes.  A vision should be a vibrant mental image that depicts the candidate’s view of the desired future state in an inspiring way.  It is not an objectives statement, or a simple list of values. It is a word picture of what will be seen, heard, and felt when results are achieved.  It is about a person’s role in the culture, environment, and the values upheld.  If it does not inspire a little, then it may not be a vision.

Without a clear vision, a job candidate may not garner a connection with interviewers.  Why?  Because most hiring managers judge actions and words closely and critically, hunt for signals of direction, purpose, motives, and, especially, for the answer to “who is this person?”  Job candidates begin down the path to failure when they do not gain control of their own career objectives.  The result is not effectively getting their messages across, shaping a job plan, or gaining the confidence of those in a position to judge results of their job candidacy.

Job candidates secure early successes in the interview process with a potential employer by identifying employer issues they can address resulting in tangible improvements in performance.  In doing this, they speak the language of the hiring manager, set the right tone, and energize their candidacy.  It all starts with a vision; your vision for who you want to be and where/how it benefits the potential employer.

Your Resume Leadership Advantage By Gordon Walter


business people #10Your Resume Leadership Advantage By Gordon Walter

Picture this: you are tasked with interviewing new college graduates for work in a “fast-track” manager training program. The job requires participants to work in each functional area of the company then be assigned to a position in operations. Most candidates are the “cream of the crop” with impressive academic credentials from top business schools. Each of them spent time abroad studying or traveling. They have excellent grades, a fine resume, speak intelligently, and present themselves with aplomb. But one of the candidates is different from the others. He had “B” –level grades in college, went to a well-known but smaller university, and was employed full-time as a parking lot supervisor for a downtown professional sports stadium while attending school. He worked many nights and weekends, and had responsibility for hiring/managing as many as sixty people. On the strength of the information in this true story, should he be considered for the job?

These days, most graduates from top business schools come with a great education, are well-versed in management theory and are current on business best practices. But one thing they sometimes do not to have is experience leading/managing people. Being able to exercise judgment and accomplish results through others is key. John Maxwell, noted management consultant and expert on leadership said “Most people who want to get ahead do it backward. They think, ‘I’ll get a bigger job, then I’ll learn how to be a leader.’ But showing leadership skill is how you get the bigger job in the first place. Leadership isn’t a position, it’s a process.

Organizations formerly offered entry-level positions with career tracks to higher management. However, many “flattened” organizations of today have removed these foundational entry level positions. New graduates are hired directly into management or supervisory positions and must learn leadership skills the hard way. Such learning may come at the expense of their direct reports and/or organization in which they work.

Job candidates with leadership skills would do well to repeatedly bring such experience to light on their resume. If they do lack some knowledge of theory but are steeped in real world management experience coupled with the ability to learn, they offer a valuable commodity. A good result achieved through the excellent organizing, managing and leading of people provides the candidate something to talk about and be proud of. When properly done, highlighting of these skills can provide a competitive tipping point over other candidates. Whether from job history, military service or volunteerism, leadership skill and ability are worth tasteful emphasis on resumes and in job interviews.

What happened with the job candidate mentioned at the top of this article? After much discussion, the organization decided to take a chance and hire him into the management program. He thrived. Later, he became a valued leader in the supply chain and repeatedly said that his people “made me look good.” In reality, he already knew how to manage and motivate people, while the rest he learned.

Heard on the Street: Quantitative Questions from Wall Street Job Interviews by Timothy Falcon Crack

Heard On The Street by Timothy Falcon Crack – Quantitative Questions from Wall Street Job Interviews

THIS IS A MUST READ! It is the first and the original book of quantitative questions from finance job interviews. Painstakingly revised over 18 years and 14 editions, Heard on The Street has been shaped by feedback from many hundreds of readers. With over 50,000 copies in print, its readership is unmatched by any competing book. The revised 14th edition contains over 185 quantitative questions collected from actual job interviews in investment banking, investment management, and options trading. The interviewers use the same questions year-after-year, and here they are with detailed solutions! This edition also includes 140 non-quantitative actual interview questions, giving a total of more than 325 actual finance job interview questions. There is also a revised section on interview technique based on Dr. Crack’s experiences interviewing candidates and also based on feedback from interviewers worldwide.

NEW for 2014!
Does 325+ sound like too many questions? Is 8.5×11 too big? If so, then try the two pocket sized editions, each containing a careful selection of questions from the full sized edition. Search Amazon for “Pocket Heard on The Street.” These smaller books fit easily into your pocket or purse, and are easy to read on the subway, bus, plane, etc.

The quant questions cover pure quant/logic, financial economics, derivatives, and statistics. They come from all types of interviews (corporate finance, sales and trading, quant research, etc.), and from all levels of interviews (undergraduate, MS, MBA, PhD). The first seven editions of Heard on the Street contained an appendix on option pricing. That appendix was carved out as a standalone book in 2004, and it is now available in its revised second edition: “Basic Black-Scholes” ISBN=0970055242.

Dr. Crack has a PhD from MIT. He has won many teaching awards, and has publications in the top academic, practitioner, and teaching journals in finance. He has degrees/diplomas in Mathematics/Statistics, Finance, Financial Economics and Accounting/Finance. Dr. Crack taught at the university level for over 20 years including four years as a front line teaching assistant for MBA students at MIT.
