Parts of a Job Search

I have been looking for a new job for over a year. I am not sure what the problem may be. I was a Controller a few years ago and am now a Senior Accountant, does that look bad? Are there good Accounting recruiters that you can recommend? I will paste my resume here for you to look at.

Accounting to HR

I have worked as an auditor/accountant for the past 10 years. I currently work for one of the Big Four firms and I have decided that I have no desire to continue on this path. I am not completely sure where I would like to end up, but my interest is currently in Human Resources as a compensation analyst. I have no compensation experience but I do have experience in analyzing data and critical thinking. What is the best way for me to break into this field. I realize that I would most likely have to take a pay cut also and I'm okay with that as long as I'm rewarded appropriately.

Lawyer Moving to Chicago

I am a lawyer practicing in Arizona, but wish to move to Chicago. Is it possible to find a good job as a non-licensed attorney in Chicago before writing the Illinois bar exam?

Welcome to Chicago! Finding whatever you consider a "good job" might be a possibility if you do your homework. You might first clarify what "good" means for you.

Being Truthful to Employers

I’m starting classes full time at night. Is it necessary to disclose this information to jobs that I am applying for?

It all depends.... what are the jobs you are applying for? Would they require you to work at night? How many days a week will you attend class? Will the classes you'll be taking enhance your job skills? What is your reason for wanting to disclose the information?

Dealing with a Bad Reference

Following a year in a top management position at a new job, I had major health problems requiring hospitalization which affected my work performance. Prior to this position I have had an exemplary 13 year track record. I do not believe this organization or my supervisor will give me a positive reference and I may be terminated. How would you deal with this on a resume or in a job interview? Should I not list this on my resume, and if so, how do I explain the gap?

Interview Help

What is an employer looking for? I have been on many interviews and still have come up with nothing. Should I change my strategy?

Well, you are certainly correct, if what you are doing isn't working it would seem that a change of strategy is called for. If you are having many interviews but aren't being offered a position, you might need to improve your interview skills.
