                                     questions relating to job searching techniques, networking skills, resume
                                     writing and interviewing. The employment situation is getting better, however,
                                     it is still a challenge finding were the jobs are located and how to get pass the
                                     “gate-keepers”. As an Executive Recruiter I was privy to working directly
                                     with Corporate Recruiters and understanding their process in selecting which
                                     candidates to interview and hire. I will candidly answer your questions,
                                     possibly bluntly answering you questions, but I will be totally honest. My
                                     objective is to help you achieve your employment goal.

 Q: Is it really important to include a cover letter with my resume when applying for positions? I’ve
been told that no one really reads them. Rosalind
Dear Rosalind:
    It is important! Employers do read cover letters submitted with resumes and applications. The
cover letter completes the application process and demonstrates your professionalism. The letter
should be no longer than one page and include no more than 4 short paragraphs. The first paragraph
should state the reason why you are submitting your resume, what position you are interest in and how
you found out about the opening. Discuss what you know about the company and why you would like
to join their team. Include in the second paragraph your accomplishments or skills that you feel would
add value to their company success. In the next paragraph explain why you are currently seeking a
position, any gaps in your resume, relocation issues, if you are transitioning industries or professions.
In the final paragraph include a request for an interview and state that you will follow-up with them
within the week. Be sure to include all your contact information in the cover letter.

  Q: I am signed up with several staffing agencies to help me get an administrative assistant position.
It has been more than 2 months and I have not heard from any of them. I send them an e-mail once
a month and they do not respond. I am getting desperate for job. I don’t want to make a nuisance of
myself with them. What should I do? Barbara

Dear Barbara
   I would suggest that you call them at least once a week. Find out the name of the recruiter who will
be working with you and develop an on-going relationship with the agency. This will keep you on their
active “radar” list of candidates seeking positions. Let them know that you need a job immediately,
what type of position you are willing to accept, salary requirements, and if you are open to temporary,
part-time or full-time positions. Staffing agencies receive thousands of applicants a month and you
can get lost in the “human” process. Staffing agencies are financially compensated by employers and
therefore are actually working to help employers find employees. Not necessarily job seekers to find
jobs. So, sign up with more than 10 agencies to get the results you are seeking.

  A recent government proposal to
give the President broad powers
to shut down the Internet in case
of a declared cyber-emergency is
currently being debated. While
the need for the government to
be able to take swift and decisive
action in the face of serious cyber-                    Protecting Cyberspace As A
threats that threaten our national
infrastructure is becoming more                               National Asset
of a necessity these days, would-
be opponents of such sweeping
powers worry about the potential
for misuse. During the recent unrest in Iran, the Iranian government tried its level-best to shut down
Internet access in order to keep unfavorable reports about its activities from reaching the outside
world. The government didn’t fail in its efforts to staunch the flow of information for lack of effort, but
they failed for the lack of a concerted, pre-planned effort.
    Would-be opponents of the proposed law also worry about the potential temptation, for whichever
administration happened to be in power at the time, to crack down on their opponents through use of
the new legislation. Whether these fears are unfounded or not, the fact remains that this new proposal
would give wide-ranging powers to the government to do things that would’ve been very difficult to
achieve previously.
  The actual legislation titled “Protecting Cyberspace as a National Asset Act” (or PCNAA) would require
private companies such as ISP’s, software companies, search engines and hardware manufacturers to
immediately comply with any emergency measure or action put into place by the Department of
Homeland Security or face serious fines and penalties. As ominous as this simple directive sounds on
its face, the practical implications of such a plan could run far deeper than they appear at first glance.
    The surface justification for this proposed legislation is the perceived need to counter the very real
threat of a cyber-attack on our national infrastructure. Other governments with the same concerns
have similar legislation granting similar powers to their respective governments already in place, but
at this point we may want to step back and ask ourselves if we really want to emulate their leads on this
issue. The Chinese government currently has the ability to shut down parts of their Internet for reasons
of National Security, but that might not go over so well with the freedom-loving American public for
various reasons.
   As more and more of our collective lives and business are centered on cyberspace activities, the need
to protect our digital infrastructure becomes more pressing as time goes on. Failure in this endeavor is
simply not an option, but success cannot come at the expense of our liberty and our privacy. Since this
protective mission is mandatory, the challenge our government now faces is how to accomplish these
ends without sacrificing who we are.

If you’ve followed advice given here about sprucing up your home's exterior, well
done! Now let’s focus attention on the next thing potential buyers will see - the
front door and the interior. Now is the time for spring cleaning and to show off your
home's best features.
Repaint that front door and touch up around the entry. Make it warm and welcoming
with updated light fixtures at the entrance and foyer. Speaking of entries, check
your windows and doors for energy efficiency. If they're not airtight, an investment
in new windows and insulation will pay off handsomely and impress buyers.
Freshly repainted walls won’t hurt either, and you can achieve a bright, clean look
with light yellow or cream on the walls and contrasting white woodwork. Buff up
your wood floors, clean your area rugs or carpets, and replace any worn carpeting
before your first showing.
Buyers look carefully at bathrooms, so be sure to remove any spots of mildew,
replace caulking, and consider a small investment in a new sink and vanity to really
make things sparkle.
The icing on the cake is to offer buyers a "home warranty" on the appliances in your
house, allowing them a full year of service on anything that happens to go wrong.
Your pride of ownership and their peace of mind should combine to produce a sale!
