This month we provide advice designed to help job seekers stand out in the job market, both as a candidate and as an employee. While a merger and acquisition is generally good news for a business, it can be a mixed bag for employees. We offer tips to help you cope with the uncertainty of a merger and acquisition and protect yourself as changes are being implemented. Also, find out why doing your job may not be good enough in today’s job market, and what you need to do to earn new opportunities.

Have you ever been involved in a merger and acquisition? They often represent an exciting opportunity for businesses, and sometimes for employees, too. The one certainty for employees is that mergers and acquisitions lead to change, and not all of it is bound to be welcome. Find out what you should expect in a merger and acquisition, and what you need to do to protect your best interests.

As you navigate the job market for new opportunities, there is tremendous competition from other job seekers. How do you stand out from the crowd? There are certain qualities that nearly every employer is looking for in a new hire, and the more you can exemplify these qualities the more you can differentiate yourself as a quality candidate. Find out what employers want from their employees and new hires.

The job market may be improving, but unemployment remains high and opportunities are hard to come by. The question you need to ask is this: is your next great opportunity with your current employer? Differentiating yourself by displaying a can–do attitude and going above and beyond can get you noticed and lead to better things. Doing your job isn’t always good enough – find out why.
