  1. Sales strategies can be applied by job seekers

    Strategies used by sales professionals are effective for job searches as well, such as flattery, mirroring the interviewer, and making the interview a two-way conversation, Emily Moore writes. The SPIN technique, which involves identifying pain points, is an example of a sales technique that job seekers can use, she writes. Glassdoor (8/14)

  2. Social networks have replaced resumes, experts say

    LinkedIn and other social networks have become far more important than resumes for landing a job, Kathryn Vasel writes. Resumes have become less than 10% of the hiring process, says Macy Andrews, senior director of HR at Cisco. CNNMoney (8/14)

  4. Older college students could face retirement challenges

    The number of college students age 35 and older was 2.2 million in 2015 and is projected to grow to 2.4 million by 2026, according to the National Center for Education Statistics. Going back to school later in life could mean a hit to retirement savings, and those doing so should avoid borrowing from a 401(k) to pay for it, says advisor Sean Moore of Smart College Funding.
