    Brian writes: I am a liberal-arts graduate Invariably, I have submitted my resume to many organizations outside of archaeology and anthropology type jobs, which was my major. The HR person that will “screen” my resume has told me on numerous occasions “I’ve never seen a resume like this before.” This frustrates me as it seems as though the business and especially the HR world do not seem to know anything about what we do or what an anthropology major could do for their organization. The Career Doctor responds: I think one approach for you to consider is to try to…

    Learn how to use Twitter to your advantage for networking and career opportunities. Just how important can one tweet be? Believe it or not, an insensitive tweet can instantly break your career. In many cases, some jokes may be viewed as derogatory against certain groups, even if you’re just trying to brighten someone’s day. Here are some tips on how to best use Twitter for networking and new opportunities: Be positive. Posting negativity on Twitter is never a good decision. Don’t use your Twitter account to vent about anything — including your previous employers and any frustration…

    When it comes to resume writing, isn’t more information better? Not necessarily! Remember that your resume is a marketing document – it needs a clear and concise message if it is to do its job of securing an interview. Many employers now view resumes on a smartphone. Think of how much text you prefer to ...

    Has the productivity of your team taken a steep dive recently? Is your communication full of misunderstandings? Are there conflicts developing between your employees that are building more and more over time? Then it sounds like your team is dangerously close to disaster. Generally, it’s recommended to check the compatibility of future team members in advance, before hiring any new colleagues. But even with measures like these, that doesn’t always guarantee the harmony and success of a team. Therefore, you as a senior manager should be well versed in creating – and…

    This story begins at 3am in the Orrington Hotel when I am answering emails. I woke up in the middle of the night to my son vomiting on the bed, which we are sharing, and now smells faintly of chewed up room service fruit plate. Maybe I should have said no to room service. It’s extravagant. But he loves the fruit plate and it’s hard to pin down the meaning of extravagant when we routinely stay at hotels for cello lessons for a nine year old. Of course I cannot sleep after this. So I am answering emails and I have an inbox full of writing from people who are paying me to edit…
  • How to tell if it’s a good job or bad job

    Penelope Trunk
    26 Mar 2015 | 9:47 pm
    Many of the coaching sessions I do center around a single question: is it time to switch careers? What I’ve found is that in most cases, the answer is no, it is not time to switch careers. Here’s why: We are absolutely terrible at predicting what we will like to do in our careers, and we overestimate how much we’ll like a new career. We learn best from trial and error. However we are naturally risk averse and we hate to fail, so we’re constantly trying to make intelligent decisions in an attempt to avoid the errors in trial and error. You have to be okay with…
  • What leadership will look like when Generation Z takes over (and I love Pope Francis)

    Penelope Trunk
    24 Mar 2015 | 9:35 am
    If you want to understand Generation Z (born in the 200o’s), take a look at Pope Francis. He is not just a new pope. He is revolutionizing the Vatican in a way that generation Z is likely to revolutionize secular institutions. For those of you who are not following Pope Francis, you should. He is so cool he makes me want to give money to the Catholic church. He is a Gen Z mascot. Francis was not trained to be a powerful man. He is honest, for one thing, and no one trains for power through honesty. But also, he wants simply to do good for people and keep the Church healthy and…

    Most of the time on this blog I focus on bursting bubbles. I deliver bad news about finding a spouse, choosing a career and earning money. But the thing that really keeps me going as a career adviser is the good news. My career has saved me so many times that I think of career advice as a sort of trousseau that you draw on to make life more livable. Or, for those of us who are way past trousseau time, career advice is a way to gain equilibrium in our lives after we’ve completely given up on the preposterous idea of work-life balance. Which is why I have collected a bunch of tidbits…

    Scaling a business can be thrilling and exhilarating – but it also can be exhausting.It’s not unusual to hear those in the midst of growing a department, division or small business talk about how they’re working 60 to 80 hours a week, rarely seeing their friends or families. They may even admit they’re not sure they’ve brushed their teeth in the last week.When reaching this point, alarms should begin to sound. Not just because no one can keep up such a pace, but because it means the person is actually hurting the business instead of helping it. Growth will actually stall…
  • 5 Ways That Bosses Drive Away Employees

    22 Apr 2015 | 6:52 am
    A recent survey finds that about half of employees quit their jobs to get away from bad bosses.Count me as one of them. I've quit two jobs in my career because I believed the bosses were actually hurting my ability to do my job. I don't think these bosses (one was a man, the other a woman) were horrible people -- they were just horrible managers.In the Gallup survey, the 7,200 people polled wanted more communication from their managers. They wanted regular interactions with their bosses -- they wanted someone who cared about them as people with their own hopes and dreams. That kind of…

    Success today often depends on being innovative and testing boundaries, but with that comes the risk of failure. While failure can certainly be an important part of the learning process, it also can bog down projects or processes.But what if there was a roadmap that used best practices and research to show how to embrace failure better and faster? Would that be a key to competitive advantage?A new book, “Fail Better,” by Anjali Sastry and Kara Penn aims to show organizations and leaders how to create the conditions, culture and habits to “systemically, ruthlessly, and quickly…

How many times did he pull out a game-winner at the buzzer?But whether the rest of us mere mortals can do the same when we’re under pressure is the subject of a new book, “Performing Under Pressure: The Science of Doing Your Best When it Matters Most,” by Hendrie Weisinger and J.P.

    Matt Banner
    24 Apr 2015 | 3:00 am
    No one likes driving to an office or making a long commute to and from work each day. Not only does it waste time and gas, but it also takes away from precious time you could be doing other things like spending time with your family, relaxing, or just doing absolutely nothing at all. A recent survey from Stanford University revealed that more than 10 percent of all U.S. employees now work from home. That’s the dream though, isn’t it? You get to be your own boss. You can sit around in your pajamas all day — whatever you want! Of course, it’s not all sunshine and rainbows. During an…
  • It’s Time to Get Serious About Your Side Hustle — Here’s Why

    John T. Meyer
    23 Apr 2015 | 10:00 am
    People sometimes say entrepreneurs suffer from “Shiny Object Syndrome.” Remember when you were little and wanted to play the drums or soccer, or take up dance? Your parents would sign you up, buy the required gear, and drive you to practice. But maybe you didn’t practice as much as necessary, skipped a few lessons, and eventually quit those hobbies. Fast forward to now. Let’s say I told you to commit five years to a hobby like karate. You’d probably get pretty good at it, earn a few belts, and advance to higher levels. You have the stamina and attention span to stick with it and…

    The newest generation of entrepreneurs has rewritten the rules on everything from education to collaboration. There’s no conventional path to success anymore — just a combination of innovation, teamwork and elbow grease that leads to the promised land of investors and revenue. But at some point, garages and coffee shops no longer cut it as workspaces. Yet how can young professionals afford traditional offices? Taking on office space goes beyond signing a lease. There are utilities, network equipment, amenities and more logistics to consider. Playing by the traditional office rules present…
  • Networking in Tucson: 7 Can’t-Miss Networking Groups to Grow Your Career

    Shelby Blanchard Stogner
    22 Apr 2015 | 10:00 am
    Nobody does networking like Tucson. People in Tucson are friendly and curious and interested in making new connections. If you’re an Arizona native, you may take it for granted that you can strike up a conversation anywhere without a second thought. But if you’re from out of town, the willingness of Tucson professionals to welcome you into conversations and group events can be a breath of fresh air. It makes sense, then, that it’s not difficult to find a place to network in Tucson. However, it can still be challenging to find the right place to network. If you’re still looking for a…
  • 7 Stealth Tips for Looking for a New Job While Employed

    22 Apr 2015 | 3:00 am
    Looking for a new job while you’re still employed can be tricky. For one, it makes your remaining days at work awkward. Once the news comes out, it might burn bridges between you and your employer, who might feel betrayed. If you resign before securing a new job, you may not have a stable stream of income to support yourself for a while. In the Forbes book Find And Keep Your Dream Job, Sara Menke, founder and chief executive of a staffing firm Premier, encourages employed job seekers to stay put. “Companies want to hire the best of the best and [those people] are usually employed,” she…

  • On-Call Workforce Isn’t Always a Good Call

    CareerDiva
    16 Apr 2015 | 12:44 pm
    The growing use of on-call staffing is being scrutinized for undermining employees’ economic security and work-life fit. The latest probe comes from New York’s Attorney General Eric Schneiderman whose office sent letters to 13 large retailers saying that the practice may not be complying with state laws. This from the letter, via a Wall Street Journal article published today: Unpredictable work schedules take a toll on all employees, especially those in low-wage sectors. Without the security of a definite work schedule, workers who must be “on call” have difficulty making…

Case in point, a few weeks back the CFO of Google quit, ostensibly to get more work-life fit. He spent years bypassing his family but finally had a come to Jesus moment and quit his job to make his wife happy. Well, Google has found a replacement, and guess what one of the top tech sites — Mashable — says about the new financial chief: “Google’s CFO left the job for work-life balance, so they…
  • Are Online Degrees Worth It Now?

    There were several ads for online education outfits on the radio this morning, and it got me thinking about a brief item I heard on the news last week about a new study on online learning. Unfortunately, it didn’t get a lot of play in mass media so I thought I should share the findings with you here. It’s not great news for online degrees. A study by Babson Survey Research Group found: Only 28.0% of academic leaders say that their faculty accept the “value and legitimacy of online education.” And as for your job search, hiring managers aren’t all that big on online…

    When high-profile dads take time off for family, or at least say that’s the reason, a host of headlines typically follow. It’s big news when a head honcho makes such a decision. Case in point, Starbucks chief operating officer Troy Alstead. He plans to devote “the next year” to his wife and children, “to give them my dedicated time and attention,” according to a recent article in The Seattle Times about the executive deciding to take a year off without pay. But there are many dads and moms out there who don’t have the luxury to take a year—or even a week—off to spend…

    You and I come up with some pretty wonderful ideas, which--for some strange reason--aren't immediately embraced by those around us. So what's our natural response?

Clear-thinking people everywhere acknowledge that it's easy for two people to see the same situation very differently.  In a world where we increasingly work across time zones and cultures, this would have even greater meaning if perceptions were influenced by one's culture.

You can do this, too. Take time to choose words that create pictures, sounds, and feelings that will make your ideas connect in different ways all at once. For example: "Using this plan offers clear benefits that are in total harmony with our goals and will have an impact on customer satisfaction." In one sentence, you've touched the visual, auditory, and feeling senses of your listeners. It's…

    When I was a kid, it took me longer than I would have liked to learn how to ride a bike. I kept using a bike with training wheels and I didn’t practice much, so of course I didn’t learn how to balance. One day I observed that my sister (younger by 2.5 years) was getting close to figuring out how to ride a bike. She wasn’t quite there yet, but she was clearly much closer to balancing than I was. I couldn’t let her beat me to it! So I grabbed my bike, pushed it out to the street, and decided that I was going to learn how to ride it then and there. I hopped on — sans…

Everything was going okay up to a certain point, and then you hit a snag, and you could just tell that you made the wrong decision. Game over. Or did it happen later? Maybe things were going well for a while. Then you made that one fatal error — that moment of poor judgment — and the connection died then and…

    For the farmers in the valleys, hills, and plains of America and the fishermen scattered down its endless coast, Europe in the eighteenth century had little meaning. Few realized that their lives were tangled in a web of forces - diplomatic, social, economic - that stretched from London to Moscow, or that their fate might be settled on the plains of India or amidst the isles of the Caribbean. But it was so. For nearly a century Britain had been locked in a struggle with France; on its outcome the fate of the world depended. - From The American Revolution by Bruce Lancaster

It's because the activity is finite and has a sense of accomplishment.  You mow the grass and look at it after you're done and say, "I did that. That feels good." But the normal week of work for professionals?  A sea of gray.  No black and white.  No yard to mow, knowing that after an hour you'll clearly see the results of your action. The higher you go, the more gray it is.  Will what I do today result in any achievement I can point to as the result of my action?

    Take a look at this one: The analysis that I have on this one is pretty simple.  Look at the chart and you can only come to one conclusion - broadly, there is no such thing as "pay for performance".  For supervisors or normal worker alike. Interesting to see that worker pay spiked post-recession but managers continued to decline.  But I digress. For the most part, employees have to change companies to get a big raise.  That remains true. How much of a raise does it take to steal someone out of your company?  That depends how bad your company is or how shitty your managers are,…

    What's the value proposition when it comes to people working at your company?  If you have a hard time answering that, you're undoubtedly struggling to find people who want to work for you in this economy - where talent has more options than they've had for awhile, or at least any time since 2009. Some of creating a value prop comes down to what's valuable to the core positions that make up your company.  That's why I love what Starbucks recently did with Tuition Aid.  More from Bloomberg: "Starbucks Corp. will now pay full tuition for its workers to get a…

    "The best thing you can do for employees—a perk better than foosball or free sushi—is hire only ‘A’ players to work alongside them. Excellent colleagues trump everything else." --Patti McCord, former Chief Talent Officer at Netflix Admit it - when you think of HR and Netflix, you think about this 124-slide culture code, which Sheryl Sandberg famously described as “one of Silicon Valley’s defining documents.” It's full of s### like unlimited vacation and grown up accountability.  It's fun to look at.

  • 5 Reasons You Should Hire Someone Who Has Been Fired

    Evil HR Lady
    24 Apr 2015 | 8:17 am
    Hiring the right person is hard. It’s truly difficult to judge someone’s value based on atwo-page summary of her career and a few interviews. Therefore, hiring managers use something called proxies to help determine someone’s potential. One of these proxies is a college degree, another is current employment. Many managers reject anyone who is not currently employed because — the logic goes — if they were truly good employees they would not be unemployed. While it’s true that bad employees are more likely to be unemployed than good employees, it’s…

    I’m a member of the management team (3 of us who directly report to the CEO), in a start-up company with 12 people. Our office is very casual, but we work really hard. We’re not strict about start times or dress codes or lunch breaks. I would truly describe everyone at the company as an A performer. Our founder/owner/CEO is especially casual. He isn’t always in the office from 9-5, he’ll text or take personal calls. However, he works nights/weekends/vacations when most of us are not working.

I went to my boss and explained that I had worked there loyally for two years without raises understanding that my medical issues might make them loath to pay me more. Then I pointed out everything I accomplished, how well I was working, and most importantly that for someone with my experience salary.com says 74k was in the bottom 10% of the salary for my job.

    Evil HR Lady
    22 Apr 2015 | 4:59 am
    One of the best things ever as a manager is when you hire someone new who is awesome. Your new hire jumps right in and solves problems, builds relationships, thinks up new ideas. In short, you couldn’t hope for a better employee. On the other hand, one of the worst things is when you hire someone new who is terrible. Your new hire can’t handle the workload, complains about everything and drags the whole department down. This a  hiring fail. Since most of us aren’t experts at hiring, when we hit the jackpot with the perfect hire, we want to keep that person firmly in our…

    Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton did not–I repeat not–leave a tip in the tip jar at Chipotle on a recent visit. The horror of it all, right? It’s not a sit-down restaurant. The employees aren’t receiving a paycheck based on the idea that they are eligible for tips. If you were to put money into a tip jar, presumably it would be shared with the whole staff, and not the person who did an extra good job with the guacamole. A tip is nice, but it’s not required or even expected at such a restaurant. For the record, I have never, ever, not once left a tip at a…

    Receiving a job offer is an exciting occasion. With today’s tough market, accepting the position could be a knee-jerk reaction. But before committing yourself to the new company, think long and hard about a number of work-related aspects.

    In business, the companies that hire the best employees are the companies that win. This concept sounds simple, executing on it is an entirely different story. Despite more efficient job ad targeting and increased usage of social recruiting, hiring “difference makers” is – and always has been – a tall sales order. It’s basic recruiting economics: the demand for intelligent, driven, passionate job applicants is consistently high while the supply is always too low. Regardless of the supply-side problems, companies can consistently source, engage and hire the most in-demand job…

  • Drug Money: Top Ten Most Expensive Prescription Drugs

    Gerri
    22 Apr 2015 | 11:06 pm
    Image Source It’s little wonder that prescription programs and insurance that covers prescription costs is such a big deal today. While a good deal of research time and money goes into developing some of the most groundbreaking medicines humans have ever had access to, many people wonder where these price tags come from. Are some of these pharmaceutical companies price gouging because they can, or are they making modest profit margins after all the research funds have been taken into account? Regardless of the profit margins, here’s a list of the most expensive prescription drugs…

    Alexander

    My business card. Does your workplace have a CHO? I think every company should have a CHO – a Chief Happiness Officer. Here’s why. The CHO title is modelled on all the other CXO titles. The CTO is in charge of technology, the CFO is responsible for the financials, the COO is head of operations, etc. And once you realize that employee happiness may be the most important success factor for a business today, it becomes essential to have a Chief Happiness Officer, someone who is the main driver in making and keeping the workplace happy.

    Contributed Article by Agata at Now Learning If you’ve had to repost a job listing due to a tepid response, it may be time to take a closer look at your listing content. Does the ad use language that could be a turnoff to potential candidates? Did you promote the listing adequately using social media channels? Will a candidate understand who you are and what your brand stands for when glancing at your listing? It may seem like a lot of thought to put into a basic “help wanted” ad, but the more specific and unique you can be with your listing, the more likely you will be to pull in…

In those days, you have to wear many hats. One minute you are doing marketing, the next accounts it is all a whirlwind. Finally, you realize that you can’t keep all of the balls in the air and take on your first employee. It is a great relief, but in no time, you have turned your new employee into a jack of all trades putting a huge amount of pressure on them. Without realizing it, you are creating a negative culture that is…

    How Human Resources Software Can Help Small Businesses One of the most time-consuming and expensive facets of any small business is the Human Resources department. It has remained largely outmoded in regards to how technology can assist with the essential role that they play. After all a company is only as efficient and motivated as the workforce that they employ, but compared to sales, marketing and accounting it has – until recently – been largely left behind the times. Modern HR software looks set to revolutionise how small businesses can run their departments akin to companies…

    At the end of the day, most employees’ pay and benefits extend far beyond the base salary.

What to Consider Including A total compensation statement may include:/p> Base pay Bonuses, including any onetime bonuses for that year Value of vacation/PTO/sick days, and any other paid leave Note: Employers should be careful not to double count this item if it’s already counted in the base pay figure.

    Get out your dress code; it may be time for an update. Clothing that used to be considered “gym clothes” and too casual for the workplace is now part of ‘athleisure’ business chic—think $195 sweatpants! Like many trends, athleisure started on the left coast, according to an article on NPR’s Pop Culture website, and began when yoga outfits crossed over to the workplace. The “new sweatpants” are a prime example of jogger clothes making the jump. These garments that used to be loose and tied at the waist with a cord are now made of dressier, high-end material and can be…

In fact, the dress code has been known to turn heads! In one waitress’s case, though, heads were turned for a different reason! According to NBC News, an African-American waitress was fired from Hooters for having blonde hair.

    [Go here for tips 1 to 4.] 5. Use the Power of Silence Talking too much is a sure-fire way to kill a deal.  Have you ever been offered a product or service, and the salesperson kept talking until he or she talked you right out of the purchase? If they would have simply asked for the sale and stopped talking, their chance for success would have increased significantly. Never underestimate the power of silence.  There’s an old adage that says “he or she who speaks next loses.” When discussing a deal, if you simply stop talking and get comfortable with the awkwardness…

    Let’s not pretend that happiness and creativity is something as easy to come by as taking a pill. There are no quick fixes, but that does not mean that there aren’t tools that you can use. A few weeks ago I was stuck in a rut, battling and a severe case of writer’s block. All creative juices, which had previously flown free, were as stagnant as a tepid swamp, rendering me nearly incapable of creating even the simplest of sentences. During my dry spell I had plenty of time to reflect on my condition and my life, and found that not only had my creativity disappeared, but also my…

A laugh popped out. “Hey, don’t laugh. I’m serious,” he said. “I’m not laughing at you. I feel the same way,” I told him. “I just don’t want to be one of those old guys that is bored and watches day time game shows all day and sports all night.” Passion is the reason we get up in the morning. Passion is why we try hard. Passion is a connection to something greater than ourselves.

    You spend a great deal of time perfecting your resume. You follow all of a pundit’s advice — including mine. You post that outstanding resume onto the right job boards. And yet, all you hear back is crickets. Don’t be surprised. Or disappointed. You see, even if you have a perfect resume — even one […]

    2 Apr 2015 | 3:00 am
    Graduating from college calls for a big celebration, but there’s not much time to let loose before having to officially start the job hunt. It’s a frightening crossroads that is inevitable for most. There will be long nights of filling out applications, followed by grueling follow up emails, phone calls and, if you’re lucky, interviews.

  • I Don’t Know

    Eric
    21 Apr 2015 | 3:59 am
    It’s clear we like to know where we’re going. The idea of mystery, question marks and pure unknowns disturbs us. The statement of “I don’t know” can be liberating. Many won’t go there. We’ve been duped into believing that we have control, can master anything we set our minds to, or there is a solution for every problem. Terry Walling once wrote that the best leaders know how to live with the questions. As tough as that is to swallow and live, I agree, from my own experience. There’s something about moving forward without an answer. There’s…

    “The hardest thing about really seeing and really hearing is when you have to do something about what you have seen and heard.” – Frederick Buechner   There are times, crucial times, in our lives when we have to stand strong in acceptance and allow our will to take over. The trick is found in how prepared we are. As you know, preparation is found in the sun and in the rain. Do you know anyone who lives their life not to see the rain? Their endless pursuit is to avoid difficulties. I, like you, wouldn’t sign up for rain. However, it is inevitable to experience what…

    I can’t think of a more abused/overused word than “leadership.”  So few practice well the ARS DUCENDI (latin for the art of leadership).  Seems like we should shy away from using it.  But, alas, this post isn’t about how to remove a word from our modern lexicon. I’ve come to a point in my life where I believe that the “art” of leadership is found in integration and balance.  Show me a man or woman who integrates and applies balance to their lives, and I’ll show you someone who understands what true leadership is.  They may not have a title,…
  • The Organization Versus Your Health

    Eric
    30 Mar 2015 | 4:09 am
    I admire the organizations that are structured around encouraging strong wellbeing for their people. It’s rare, but important in so many ways. Kinda makes sense that a growing organization would want employees who are sharp mentally, physically and spiritually. Only trouble is the rest of the sample size makes up the majority. They’re representative of organizations who may market themselves as a “best place” to work or a “healthy employer,” but the reality is far from it. Call me the Upsetter of the apple cart. I’m not alone, you know? One thing must…

  • 10 Things I Had to Learn in Order to Create a Happier Relationship

    Sarah Landrum
    26 Apr 2015 | 6:49 am
    Moving in with your partner is a big life change. People say you don’t really know everything about your relationship until you live with your special someone. Well, I thought I knew everything about my fiancé when we moved in together after six years of dating, and I did – for the most part. After living together, though, I learned a lot more about him. Don’t get me wrong, most of it was great, but living together also shed some light on some not-so-favorable habits of his. And he got to know all of my bad habits as well. We realized that we had to break certain habits – not…

The more you know who you are, and what you want, the less you let things upset you.” -Lost in Translation, 2003 One of the hardest things I’ve ever done is give a piece of my writing to my parents. It sounds so inconsequential, so small, and yet, it was one of the many steps that I took to feel sane, to feel okay, and to – yes – actually keep writing. But why did I immediately want to recoil as soon as I gave them my work? Why would anybody? It’s simple:…

    “For every minute you are angry you lose sixty seconds of happiness.” ― Ralph Waldo Emerson The world works in mysterious ways; never in my wildest dreams would I have ever thought to find myself experiencing the loss of a child. Growing up, it almost seemed like the world was made of marshmallows and bad things only happened in the movies. So when my daughter died, my life came to a halt. My ideals changed and I became cynical, dismal and felt very sorry for myself. I lost who I was and everything that I had ever wanted in life seemed to dissipate with her loss. And I would like to say…

    “The single clenched fist lifted and ready, or the open hand held out and waiting. Choose: For we meet by one or the other.” — Carl Sandburg In my practice as a psychotherapist, I’ve seen people experience so much pain around anger and it breaks my heart. It’s an emotion that either sits in us like a cancer eating away at our happiness and peace, or it explodes out into our closest relationships causing distress and disharmony to all involved. And it’s not just the anger. When we come to our senses, we’re often consumed with shame and regret about how we’ve…

    “To travel is to take a journey into yourself.” - Danny Kaye This is my sixth life. Or is it seventh? When we move to a new city, especially if it’s abroad, it often feels like we started living a completely new life. Like we are a different person compared to the one that left home. Living in a foreign place feels much different than going there as a tourist. As a tourist, it seems much harder to experience the way the foreign culture breaths and it’s much harder to find the nooks and crannies which locals are well aware of. But immersing myself in another culture…

    Seth Godin is one of the greatest business minds living today. I don’t believe that’s an exaggeration. I read his blog and here, summarized some of his best advice from the last year. The thing about a clean sheet of paper …is that it still has edges. It’s tempting to believe that creativity comes from starting fresh. But even when we start fresh, we approach projects and problems with self-created boundaries. You can’t do real work without edges, without something to leverage, but those edges don’t have to be the same edges as everyone else uses. Creative people often…

    I could have titled this, “Why there is an IT talent shortage”. The past 9 months or so the number of “this developer is too junior” comments has increased. And it’s not just me… a number of my Recruiter and HR friends are hearing this in all sizes (# of employees and revenue) of companies. I get that depending on size of company, division or group a too junior developer may not fit in. Whether they need mentoring that there is not time for (or someone not capable of doing it) or there would be so much “dead” time for them that they may get frustrated and leave… I get there…

    It’s difficult to find a job if you don’t know what you want to do. Sounds obvious? Have you really focused on your skills and accomplishments and whether they help qualify you for the jobs you seek? One pet peeve of recruiters and hiring managers is that job seekers often apply for positions ill-suited to their requirements. Don’t be one of those job seekers. Before applying, take some time to figure out what you want to do – and what you’re good at – and it will be easier to get hiring managers to notice you.

    Ever go to a restaurant and get seated in the very back? The minute you sit down, you realize you’re going to be in for a long night because the waiter always seems to forget you’re there? What if the same thing happens at work and you get seated in the equivalent of “kids’ table.” In that case, you wind up with a lot worse than cold soup and an empty drinking glass: you could be passed over for opportunities that could improve your career. There are a lot of reasons why people seem to be “out of sight, out of mind” at work. While a poor cubicle or…

    Are you afraid of nightmare interviews? These come in all shapes and sizes. Maybe your interviewer grills you for hours and hours or expects you to sit through five or six rounds of interviews with team after team. Or maybe your interviewer doesn’t crack a smile or provide any nonverbal feedback the entire time. Some job seekers have gone to interviews only to be kept waiting for hours to meet the potential employer. A common (and perhaps not unfounded) fear among job seekers is the seemingly bizarre interview question that comes out of nowhere like an apparition. For example, what if…

    Most people would agree that a boss could help make or break a job.

In fact, it’s often said people don’t leave jobs; they leave bosses. Tom Gimbel, founder and CEO of LaSalle Network, a Chicago-based staffing and recruiting firm, notes that there are many different types of supervisors. He categorizes them as: “the narcissist, the friend, the buzzword boss, the cheapskate and the uncaring.”…

    Last week in Utah there was a crazy wind storm… it caused all kinds of accidents, and blew people’s stuff around their backyards.  And, of course, it caused a few Globe Willows to fall down.  Globe Willows are called “garbage trees” because of the amount of branches that fall from them… they grow very, very fast, but are also susceptible to having big branches fall in a storm.  Last week a friend posted a picture on Facebook of his tree that had fallen towards his house.

That can be uncomfortable for both of us. So when I held you, I didn’t want to let go. Not for your mom. Not for nurses.

Sure, there is a place you can congregate and talk about how you saw him in a Kroger in Texas buying chips.  Man didn’t land on the moon?

I’ve done the smartwatch thing with the crowdfunded Pebble. It was cool. I liked having RunKeeper on my wrist, for instance.

  • Slow Down You(r) Crazy Child

    8 Mar 2015 | 7:48 pm
    Our trip to Hawaii was our first big one with a child. It definitely changed a few things for us. First of all, I was never one of those guys that hated seeing kids while traveling. In fact, one of my more enjoyable travel experiences was sharing some Beatles tunes with a three year old kid off my iPhone and hearing her half-whisper the words and tunes she knew. I would tell her the names of the songs she hadn’t heard. So being on the other end of the traveling six hours nonstop with an 11 month old wasn’t as bad as it could’ve been. People around us were gracious and kind.

    24 Apr 2015 | 3:45 am
    Years ago, I just put my head down and wrote like a motherfucker. Then I blogged. Then I started cross-posting my blogging content on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn. Then I used a WordPress plug-in to automate that laborious task. Then I used Twitterfeed to cross-promote other people’s work. I now use ManageFlitter to organize my Twitter account. I can categorize accounts that I’ll always follow even if they don’t follow me. I can block accounts that suck, too. I purchased a license for Sprout Social to auto-post promotional information about my long-form content on other…

    Do you remember your first meeting? I do. I was at Monsanto. We were talking about staffing. I didn’t know what to do. I just sat there with a pen in my hand looking ridiculous. Remember the days when meetings were over fast? Or when you could make up a lie, walk out of a meeting, and nobody noticed because nobody cared about you? Remember when meetings were called by someone else, and you were like — Sheesh, glad I’m not the nerd who needs to call a meeting every time my self-esteem needs a boost. Sucks to be that guy. I hate people who cancel meetings at the last minute.
  • HR Advisor Versus HR Consultant

    I was in NYC, last week, for a workshop with young, adorable and very fun HR professionals. All of them were high-performing, high-potential leaders with big hearts and big ideas. And it was weird to be on the other side of the room acting like an adult. I used to be one of them. Frustrated at work, but still sorta hopeful. Wondering how to make an impact with limited budget and resources. Hoping that I get a decent raise, but more importantly, craving public appreciation and admiration for a job well done. I hit the same HR-related obstacles and roadblocks that many human resources advisors…
  • The Over-Engineering of HR: Part-Myth, Part-Truth

    ruettimann
    21 Apr 2015 | 3:45 am
    The new trend in human resources and recruiting is to harken back to simpler times. People say that HR has become cluttered and over-engineered, and it’s time to get down to brass tacks. I don’t disagree at all. When it takes two systems and five people to process one form — and you still need to send a paper copy to Iron Mountain — it’s tough to fight against the rising tide of simplification and automation. Let’s not pretend that complexity is a recent condition of your human resources department, however. Long before HR, the act of hiring and employing…

    I was born in 1975. My brother was born in 1978. Our parents were youngish baby boomers, and my dad was very nostalgic and sentimental. He loved to take pictures of everything. Unfortunately, there was no good way to preserve photos from that period. My father doubled-down on 35mm slides. He “scanned” our childhood images to photographic slides that can only be seen through a slide projector. (Do you kids even know I’m talking about? Damn youngsters. See links above.) I recently discovered about 700 slides in my basement. Not the ideal conditions for archival footage. For…

    Guest post from Rowan Gibson: Not since the dawn of the Industrial Revolution has there been a greater need to learn the art of innovation leadership. In today’s hyper-accelerating, value-based economy the churn of “creative destruction” has become more intense than even Joseph Schumpeter could have imagined. Successful products, services, strategies, and business models now have a shorter shelf-life than ever before in business history, which means that “innovate or die” is not just a cute bumper sticker; it’s a brutal reality of twenty-first century competition.As innovation…

  • Why Should You Keep Your Friends Close and Your Enemies Closer?

    Dan Erwin
    25 Apr 2015 | 12:17 pm
    It wasn’t the Godfather’s Michael Corleone who first uttered this well-known dictum. Actually, it came from Machiavelli in "The Prince," the definitive primer for how to be a dictator. You’d think that with my easy-going optimism, I’d never write a blog on this subject.  But, au contraire! As a manager or leader it is inevitable that we’ll want to add to our knowledge base, try to sell ideas, get people on board and even change the direction of our organization. One of the involved persons just might be your enemy. That’s my basic rationale for acting on…
  • How to Use Networking as a Leadership Tool

    Dan Erwin
    10 Apr 2015 | 10:46 am
    Acting like a leader is not just about what you do. It’s also about the company you keep. So what kind of company are you keeping?  In her brilliant new book, Act Like a Leader, Think Like a Leader, Herminia Ibarra describes the best ways to lead with far greater impact. She emphasizes the necessity of redefining your job to make more strategic contributions and “playfully evolving” your outdated leadership style. But the other strategy for... becoming a leader is to diversify your network with the “right company” so that you can connect and learn from a bigger range of…

    Analysis of business conversations inevitably reveals that they are chock full of misunderstanding, differences of opinion and inherent disagreement. Yet, it has been more than a dozen years since anything significant on managing conflict has been created. But in a recent and highly awarded study UVA’s Kristin Behfar and her colleagues have provided a new, very practical approach to conflict prediction and resolution. Rather than focus on conflict types, such as task or relationship orientation, they found that by manipulating two dimensions—directness and intensity—they were able to…
  • The Four Competencies of Leadership

    Dan Erwin
    6 Apr 2015 | 7:24 am
    It’s wonderful—perhaps because it’s so rare—to reread something that you started using thirty years ago and discover that it’s still highly relevant. Desktops were just beginning to show up and technology organizations were starting to use organizational networks. Organizations began to flatten and the need for leading started to surface. The talk was all about leading, not managing. The Pillsbury CIO had a lot of money but little leadership talent on his team. So he tracked me down and asked me to work with a number of his new managers. I had done some coaching in R&D--as an…

    Dan Erwin
    23 Mar 2015 | 7:14 am
    As a result of interacting with a number of Gen-yers over the past few years, I’ve developed a sense of when their input can be trusted and when it can’t. MIT’s Josh Hartshorne and Harvard’s Laura Germine recently validated my hunches, providing a great deal of clarity. Two areas are very significant, one of little surprise but the second confirming a number of questions and doubts about Gen-Y expertise.

    I am a black woman. In recruiting. Over the years, I’ve had opportunities to work on diversity teams. I have been invited to interview for roles in Diversity & Inclusion. I have been called upon to weigh in on issues of diversity. I have been the guest of honor at meetings that start and end with the assertion that more diverse candidates should be added to every slate. Here is my typical response: You don’t need a diverse candidate “slate.” I am not a fan of creating slates of candidates that include a mandatory number of diverse candidates. These efforts, while well intentioned,…

    While the U.S. workforce may be gradually shifting toward office-based jobs, hundreds of non-desk occupations are still thriving, according to a new CareerBuilder/Economic Specialists Intl. study.

    When I was growing up, I did not have any friends whose parents were attorneys. In fact, I did not really know any attorneys until I got to college. A girlfriend of mine at that time had a friend whose stepfather was an attorney. I met him during my senior year, when I was applying to law schools. He seemed nice enough, and we shook hands and exchanged pleasantries, and that was that. When I went to law school several months later, I decided that I would write him to tell him that I was looking for a summer job. I sent him a letter reintroducing myself and told him that I would be calling him…

    Several years ago I was on vacation with my wife in Paris and was trying on shoes and found a pair of dress shoes that I really liked a lot. I had never seen a pair of shoes like this before and they were extremely comfortable. After trying them on and walking around the store in them, I told the salesman that I would take them. ”You would be an idiot to buy them here,” he told me. ”The shoes are made in the United States and there is a duty charged on them, taxes are charged here and they are way more expensive here than back home.

    Our company owns a building where there is a furniture store downstairs. For several years, the furniture store and I have been in a battle of sorts. The furniture store  continually leaves its front doors open so more customers off the street walk in. We don’t like the doors open because it lets out the heat in the winter and the air conditioning in the summer. For the past several years, we have been exchanging insults, legal briefs and all sorts of nonsense due to the fact that I want the door closed—the furniture store continues to leave the doors open. Our building has an…
  • The Importance of Endorsements, References and Getting Others to Cheer for You

    Harrison Barnes
    22 Apr 2015 | 12:00 am
    As a legal recruiter, one of the things I spent a lot of time doing was writing long, in-depth letters on behalf of my candidates. In many cases these letters would be over 10 pages long. The letters would contain discussions of the candidate’s character, overflowing praise of the attorney’s accomplishments and would also tell a story. I did such long and in-depth letters because I learned, early on in my legal recruiting career, that the longer and more praiseworthy the letter was the more likely the person was to get a job. Most recruiters do not even write letters on their…

Nearly 50 percent of the US population describes itself as shy, according to Wendy Gelberg, author of The Successful Introvert (a very good resource for this situation). A good way for the shy and introverted to network is with a buddy. Buddies can give each other moral support while holding each other accountable.

After a while, it started being a bit of a joke, but it isn’t a bad idea to use your middle initial professionally because middle name initials enhance evaluations of intellectual performance according to a research study in the European Journal of Social Psychology. That study found that people think an author is more intelligent if there is a middle initial; more middle initials in an author’s name look smarter still. How does this play out in the…

And your client or employer is your customer – working with you may not just be about the result – it may be about them liking the experience you offer…

In this episode of Win Win, the two industry leaders share their observations of equality in the work place, and why true leaders can never be afraid to get their hands dirty. "I work in business. I have a business career. But the workplace isn't working for women," says Sandberg. "And the home situation and the lack of balance isn't working for women, and it's up to all of us to change that."

    Great leaders inspire their people and provide focus by setting a clear vision, a mission, and actionable values that fuel an environment for individual and company-wide success. A strong company culture is fueled and inspired by leadership actively involved and connected to the realities of their teams and their business.

Poor, nonexistent, misdirected and dysfunctional communication are among the biggest reasons companies fail to accomplish their missions. Building a strong culture takes…

That study found that people think an author is more intelligent if there is a middle initial; more middle initials in an author’s name look smarter still. How does this play out in the…

    For a while we’ve argued that “follow your passion” has limited value as career advice.  Of course, it’s lovely to feel passionate about what you do, but the outcome is lousy advice for the process. For example, in my own career change I was interested in psychology, but my first experience of learning it- a distance learning module out of Staffordshire University – was probably the most soul destroying thing I’ve ever done.  This is partly because it was part of my “Big Career Change”, so I was expecting instant passion; but my first actual…

It has been such an enjoyable and moving process journey that I wanted to write them a short letter… Dear Escape Tribe, I can’t tell you my admiration for your courage to stand for something in your lives, even in the presence of your fears. It feels like a privilege to watch you and work with you; in many ways one of the highlights of my career. So I wanted to write you my own letter, perhaps because I was so moved by…
  • How Did You Get Stuck? Gradually then Suddenly.

    11 Feb 2015 | 2:55 am
    In Ernest Hemingway’s The Sun Also Rises one character asks: How did you go bankrupt?” “Two ways, gradually then suddenly” comes the reply. And in a nutshell that explains how so many of us get trapped in career paralysis. No one plans to get stuck in a job they hate.  Most of us make a series of what seemed like rational, logical decisions to get where we did.  We did what was expected, followed the advice we were given, took the opportunities available and ended up stuck in a job that leaves us counting the minutes til 6pm. How does this happen?  Gradually and then suddenly. We…

Over the next 3 years, roughly 100,000 people rushed there, hoping to strike it rich. (Yes, mining gold and consulting are a lot alike–stick with me for a minute and you’ll see). But getting to the Klondike was a brutal and dangerous ordeal.

  • How to Get the Applicant Tracking System to Pick Your Resume

    Pamela Skillings
    28 Feb 2015 | 4:23 pm
    The entire process of reviewing and evaluating resumes is evolving fast. If you’re a job seeker today, you must adapt to the new reality of candidate screening if you hope to move past resume screening software and onto the interview. Here is a guide by our own Elizabeth Magill. These software applications are called many things -- applicant tracking systems (ATS), resume screening software, resume robots, soulless automated resume rejecters, etc. But whatever you prefer to call them, it behooves you to learn to speak their “language” fluently in order to make your resume stand out…

    Showcase Your Strengths Without Feeling Like a Used Car Salesman “I just don’t know how to sell myself!” It’s one of the most common complaints that I hear in my job interview coaching practice. I love hearing these words because I know I can help these clients make a dramatic improvement in their interview game pretty quickly. They tend to be people who are successful and confident and poised, but just a bit too modest when it comes to talking about themselves. Take Lawrence for example. He is an accomplished IT professional with an impressive resume and no problem getting up in…

    For many people, owning a business is a long-time dream. However, when this dream doesn’t pan out, it’s time to jump back into a more traditional role and find a job working for someone else. This can be a slightly uncomfortable change and may take some getting used to on the part of the former business owner. In order to ease the transition, consider these points: Come to terms with the change If you weren’t totally thrilled about the idea of selling or closing your business, it may be hard to come to terms with the fact that you’ll now be working for someone else.

  • Who should I vent to about issues at work?

    Jaime Petkanics
    20 Apr 2015 | 9:56 am
    One of my highlights from last week was co-hosting a Lunch & Learn at Yelp with my friend Brandi. There were a lot of great questions on topics like being professional in a casual workplace, mentorship, and how you know that you’ve chosen the right career path. Then someone brought up this really good question: When there are issues at work, who is the best person to vent to? Is it a coworker, your boss, a friend, a family member? Or someone else? No job is 100% perfect. Even for those of us who love what we do there are ups, downs, and days that feel a bit “meh”. Some…

    This scenario is pretty common and actually just happened to two clients I was working with. You hustle hard in your job search, land an offer you’re excited about, sign on the dotted line, and feel like the process is officially over. For the most part, it is. However, you never know when other companies will come across the applications you submitted over the past few weeks/months and reach out. Of course, they’ve arrived too late to the party and you’re already off the market, but what’s the best way to respond? Q&A: A company reached out after I accepted…

    I recently asked a group of college students about some of the most tricky interview questions they had gotten lately and this was definitely a tough one! Tell me something that’s not on your resume While I don’t think this question is so common that it will come up in any interview, it is definitely worth thinking about! It may also asked as: Tell me something I can’t find out about you on paper Why it’s a tough one For me, this question is tricky because you don’t know exactly what they’re looking for. Do they want to know something professional or…
  • The 3 steps to a successful job search

    Jaime Petkanics
    7 Apr 2015 | 11:09 am
    I believe there is a system to job searching and there aren’t too many short cuts around it. Essentially it’s this: you apply, you network, you interview, you get an offer. The tricky thing here is that this process doesn’t follow the formula of “you do this, so you get this” like we all want. At each of these stages there is a big drop off. Not every application gets a pair of eyes on it, not every networking email gets a response, not every interview results in an offer… so instead of A + B = C things look more like this: So before we dive in to each…

          Sales Engineers are vital to your sales efforts, providing the technical glue that holds deals together. Quality Sales Engineers can be a challenge to find because competition is fierce for effective engineers.

  • Healthy IT Economy Means Businesses Are Spending and Hiring Again

    25 Nov 2014 | 7:00 am
    When the U.S. economy crashed in 2007, much of corporate America went into a spending freeze.  The Information Technology, security and audio / visual (A/V) industries were especially impacted.  Today, the IT and U.S. economy as a whole appear to be on the rebound with industry pundits suggesting consumer confidence is back, especially after a strong second quarter that has economists believing we will close 2014 on solid footing. In fact, the gross domestic product expanded at a higher than expected 4 percent annual rate after shrinking to just 2.1 percent in the first quarter.

    April 23rd is the big day: take your daughter to work day! The idea of take your daughter to work day is a fun one, at least for the children. Growing up, I loved take your daughter to work day. (Yes, now it’s technically take your “child” to work day but this is her agenda after all, so we’ll focus on the girls. In fact, the day was started by Gloria Steinem and the Ms. Foundation back in 1993 to help close the gender gap in the workplace.) But, back to my story!

  • Let’s Come Up With New Ideas Together

    TheProfessionalWebsite
    22 Apr 2015 | 5:50 am
    Earlier in my career, I worked at a startup that struggled to survive (like most startups do). One thing I remember from this experience was how unified and committed we were to get better. Every day the four to five of us went to lunch together. This is when we bounced ideas on each other. No one was squirrely about sharing because we had mutual respect for each other and had common goals. (So now I always ask in an interview: “What do you guys do for lunch?”) New Ideas Ideas are critical to success; actualizing new ideas should be part of a company culture. It is something many…
  • Build A Foundation (Ideas) And Show Strength (Hustle)

    TheProfessionalWebsite
    16 Apr 2015 | 5:26 am
    Hated packed lunches with a peanut butter and jelly sandwich when I was a kid. Got twenty-five cents for milk money, which I used to buy candy at a local grocery on the way to school every morning. I then sold the candy to my classmates and made enough profit to buy lunch at the cafeteria. This was my first real hustle. Now, I am much more driven by an idea – something that solves a problem. In my mind, generating new ideas is the number one priority of a business (at least one that I am part of). Meeting customer and investor expectations and battling with competitors are also priorities.

    Thinking of a performance review, an employee pictures a sit-down with a supervisor where there is a discussion of positive and negative experience over the prior period. With good management, the supervisor has a report consisting of grades or measurements based on desired behaviors and expectations; a great report has benchmarks and input from team members. A performance review is an ideal time to apply the Skills-Based Approach methodology. Its central premise is the development of a skill set throughout a career in four stages: planning, building, presenting, and validating. Skills-Based…

A brief bio is below. – Amy One of the most effective ways to get an increase in your salary is to negotiate an increase with the person responsible for signing off on it. This may be when you are first offered a position, or in your current job. Most people find it an uncomfortable topic to bring up, and a lot of people never muster up the courage to attempt to negotiate their salary. This is an opportunity missed however, and you have nothing to lose by asking. You’ll never know what the outcome might be if you never ask, will you?

It’s not surprising that in television, a boss is almost always present to direct the course of action in some way, shape or form.

  • How to get fired from a job in five seconds flat

    9 Feb 2015 | 11:07 am
    By Julia Richardson – For most of us skipping work is risky business. Many companies, like Wal-Mart, have no-call policies. This means, if you miss work, you need to call in. Failure to do so will result in termination of employment. It’s pretty standard. No matter what the individual company policy is on the number of absences in relation to termination, if you’re sick, you call. And if you miss too much work, you’re fired. Of course that’s all in theory. It doesn’t always work like that. In fact, USA Today recently reported about a man in India who had skipped work for 24…

    Career Management is the new Job Security In the 20th century, job security looked like this… A corner office looked like job security, until your company merged with another with corner offices in taller buildings, and the game of musical chairs began. A great backlog of work looked like job security. Then management found a faster, cheaper way to meet the business requirement. A degree from a prestigious university looked like job security, as long as the skills behind that degree were needed. But then technologies changed, and the business shifted focus to different things, done…

Soon after reporting to that first job, the search becomes a quest for better conditions or a promotion. For the employed, job-seeking becomes career development.

    It feels like a trap – “Why are you interested in this job?” Sure, there are plenty of ways not to respond: “I need the money… My old company fired me! My friend said you give great bonuses!” But it’s a very important question to know how to answer, especially when an HR manager is sitting across the table and wants to know, “Why us? Why here?” This kind of tricky interview question is hardly new, definitely nothing exciting, but with the right answer, you can seal the deal and show the hiring manager that you’re the perfect…

    “There’s no university or program that prepares someone to become a headhunter,” says Julian von  Blücher, CEO and founder of headhunting firm Talent Tree GmbH, headquartered in Munich. It’s true – though headhunting is now considered to be the most effective method of matching candidates with companies, there’s no training or education process that can teach someone how to become a headhunter.

Whereas in the past, workers were seen as “stable” and “hardworking” for staying with a company for tens of years, now people worry that they may be missing out on other career opportunities, staying stagnant instead of growing.

    21 Apr 2015 | 3:25 pm
    Recently I was reading this article by CEO Mark Weinberger where he discusses why he left EY three times, but continuously returned, and is now the CEO. I’ve left a fair few organisations (7 at last count) and within my consulting roles, I’ve also left quite a few long term projects where it felt like I was leaving an employer. So Mark’s post had me thinking about whether you should ever go back to an organisation that you have previously left. Instinctively, my answer is an emphatic *NO!* On further reflection, however, I realised that there are some instances in which…

    Sometimes when people are put in leadership positions, they focus more on their own work and managing upwards than taking care of their team. In my experience, the people who support their team and help them to succeed have the most engaged and highest performing teams, and experience the most success. Conversely, those who take all the credit for the team’s work, worry about safeguarding their jobs and spend most of their time ensuring that their boss is happy are less well-liked and tend to have a tarnished reputation from their colleagues downward. Even though these people are likely…

    9 Apr 2015 | 2:57 am
    (from Entrepreneur.com/ Jayson Demers) For many of us, the morning doesn’t seem like it’s anything important. The time between your initial wakeup and your arrival to the office is usually a blur, and your routine has become so second-nature that you never think to change it. Unfortunately, our morning tasks are much more significant than we’d like to admit, and our bad habits tend to accumulate over time. The morning sets a tone for how the rest of the day is going to go, and even a handful of small mistakes can take its toll on your productivity in the afternoon and beyond. Take a…

We’ve shed these relics along with our fax machines and CD-ROMs, trading cookie-cutter professionalism for corporate cultures that foster individuality, freedom and creativity. From open workspaces and relaxed dress codes to flexible schedules and impromptu meetings, today’s offices allow employees to work as they please.

    (from Levo League/Molly Russell ) What’s the first thing you notice about a person? It’s generally their facial expression. And when you meet someone for the first time, you’re likely to remember if they greeted you with a big grin or a disappointing sulk. First impressions do matter, and your facial expressions can affect how people perceive you. Dr. Alan Fridlund, professor at University of California Santa Barbara, says that expressions are inherently social; they give others clues to how you’re feeling. Facial expressions can forecast how a person’s feeling: “The face is like…

    (from Entrepreneur.com/Jay Bacrania) If you’re an entrepreneur, you know well that feeling of deciding when to leave work for the day. In your mind, you weigh the mountain of work against things like exercise, family, kids, friends, sleep, etc. Unlike most jobs, YOU have to make (and often second guess) the decision of when to punch out. Every. Single. Day. If you’re in the first few years of starting a company, your mountain of work may rightfully win out. Hard work and long hours are the reality, and anyone who says otherwise hasn’t actually started a company themselves.

    When preparing for legal support interviews many key factors contribute to success. In preparation, many questions must be asked. What will you wear? Are you nervous?

  • Introverts or Extroverts – Who Gets Hired?

    Kimberly MacMillan
    4 Apr 2015 | 4:16 pm
    Hiring managers and recruiters are always looking for employees who fit job descriptions to a tee. One of the biggest qualifiers for potential candidates is personality fit. Outgoing candidates (extroverts) are hired most often; however, if introverts can articulate their skill sets and answer questions properly, they might be seen as a better fit. What type of employee are you? The Extroverted Employee Extroverts are outgoing, sociable, curious, inquisitive, energetic, positive, dynamic, charitable, exposed, like incentives, are open to new ideas, scrupulous in their working style, and high…

  • Catch 22: How To Get A Job Without Experience

    Lauren Holliday
    21 Apr 2015 | 5:30 am
    It’s a catch-22: you need experience to gain experience. One obvious way to gain experience is to undertake a paid or unpaid internship, which may lead to one of the following problems: You cannot afford to work as an unpaid intern You do not have the extra time in your schedule You have no prior experience Or you have two months left until graduation Now, what do you do? You get creative, and think outside the box. When you have a thick portfolio of proven, real-world experience, it makes no difference if it was from a three-month internship or if it was from volunteering or successfully…
  • Three Content Projects You Should Insource Immediately

    Lauren Holliday
    20 Apr 2015 | 12:33 pm
    One of the biggest misconceptions of working with interns is that one intern can act like Super(Wo)man for you. While it may be possible to find a full-stack freelern, the search will be difficult. So in order to economically and efficiently grow your business, you need to develop working relationships with multiple people. I like to call this “pair interning” or “paired freelerning.” Outsourcing different projects to different freelerns is the way to go for a few reasons. Projects get done quicker because people are focused. Contractors work together, answering questions one another…
  • You Must Learn How to Write a Damn Good Email

    Lauren Holliday
    11 Apr 2015 | 6:21 am
    Everyday, I receive emails, LinkedIn smail (spam mail), texts and/or Facebook messages from people looking for resume help. I typically don’t respond to them – not because I don’t want to help but because they’re not listening to me when I tell them that any resume I create is NOT going to get them a job. And, let me be straight, it’s not because I’m not good at fabricating bullet points for them. The reason upgrading their resume isn’t going to work is because it’s not a resume that scores you a job. It’s relationships. Have you ever heard the saying: “It’s who you…
  • Two Steps to Prepare You to Manage Remote Freelancers

    Lauren Holliday
    8 Apr 2015 | 7:25 am
    If you haven’t let employees start working from home, you’re soon to be alone. According to a U.S. Census Bureau report, in 2010, 13.4 million people worked at least one day at home per week – an increase of over 35 percent in the last decade. And a quick look at the data shows that the number of people working remotely will only increase in the years to come. For instance, a recent survey of business leaders at the Global Leadership Summit in London found that 34 percent said more than half their company’s full-time workforce would be working remotely by 2020. A full 25 percent…

    Hiring an intern or contractor, whoever, comes with a lot of tiny details. Most likely there are a ton of things you haven’t yet considered. Some places will tell you that internships are all about your benefit. Honestly, it depends on the type of internship you offer. In many cases though, this just is not true. Don’t take this as law, however. Instead, this short guide will walk you through the steps of what to do once you hire a contract-based intern. Here’s our contractor hiring checklist.

      Career Coaching, Life Coaching. . . Maybe it’s just me, but it seems that now everyone is a coach. It used to be that no one knew what a coach was. If I told someone I was a coach, they looked at me funny or asked what sport I played. Even though most people know what coaching is now, this is still what people sometimes think coaching looks like: HA! This was sent to me by my friend Bruce. (Thanks Bruce!) The truth is, coaching is obviously a lot different from that, and if you’re feeling stuck in your career you should think seriously about coaching.  Why?  Because…

  • A Brief History of Golf

    angela moore
    24 Apr 2015 | 12:34 pm
    The game of golf as we know it today can be attributed to the Scots, although there are records of several stick and ball games throughout history. As far back as the 13th century, the Dutch played a game where a leather ball was hit with the intention of reaching a target several hundred yards away. The winner would be the player who reached the target with the fewest shots. However, the Scottish sport, which was known as Golf, had one distinction that separates it from similar sports in history: the hole. When we’re talking about the modern game with 18 holes, golf history traces its…
