    What have you done at work lately to make yourself a little nervous? How about volunteering to give a presentation even though standing in front of an audience terrifies you? Or offering to analyze data, when crunching numbers takes you on a long trip outside your comfort zone? Doing things that give flight to those butterflies can sharpen your competitive edge on the job. And trust me: Bosses appreciate a team member who’s willing to try something new or take an assignment no one else wants to touch. (Click here to tweet this quote.) When we get nervous, our first instinct is to turn and…

  • “Should my Linkedin summary be the same as my resume summary?”

    Blue Sky Resumes Blog

    7 Oct 2014 | 2:53 am
    I am often asked whether LinkedIn summaries and resume summaries should be the same. The answer is simple: DEFINITELY NOT! There are 3 main reasons to write different summaries for LinkedIn and your resume. Your resume summary should be short – no more than 5 or 6 lines at most and preferably less. Your LinkedIn summary is expected to summarize your career and highlight your main strengths, therefore needs to be longer. Think of it your LinkedIn summary as a mini bio and you’ll be on the right track. Your LinkedIn profile should be written in a more informal style than your resume…

Growing up in Canada, my dad the businessman would also talk about the beginning of the fiscal year.

The recent look back was troubling for me, to say the least. The just-completed guest blogging contest was a resounding success and helped revitalize JobMob, but…

But now that she lives with me she would like me to not be so bossy. Kate discovers that the best time to talk with me is late at night when the boys are asleep and I’m too tired to work—that’s when I’m the least stressed out. And she is getting used to me having an assistant for everything. Jeanenne and Kate spend the morning on the sofa trying to figure out how to get Kate health insurance.

  • 7 Ways to have a good marriage

    6 Nov 2014 | 5:34 am
    Staying married is important for your career. If you’re the breadwinner, and you have kids but get divorced, you will need to earn enough money for two households instead of one. Bye-bye career change. If you are not the breadwinner, you’ll start being the breadwinner, and all the career flexibility your marriage provided will be gone. Now you’ll have a much more limited set of possibilities for your career choices. Add to that: you won’t be able to relocate for a job because your kids are not going to relocate with you—that’s almost always by court…

    I spent a lot of the last decade writing about what each generation wants from a job. I wrote for Time magazine that Generation Y wants engagement. I wrote that Generation X wants flexibility. I wrote that Baby Boomers want power. But the common truth is that we all want stability. Each generation just has their own idea of the right path to a stable career. A unifying thing about a multigenerational workforce is that career stability is the same for all of us—it’s about keeping us with the changing demands of work. Here’s what you need to do to create stability for…
  • What type of woman should freeze her eggs?

    Penelope Trunk
    19 Oct 2014 | 2:13 pm
    Apple and Facebook announced that the companies will pay for female employees to freeze their eggs. It’s a great company policy. For one thing, it’s acknowledgment that the gap between women and men in the workplace is that women’s careers are controlled by their biological clock and men’s are not. Another thing this new policy does is it gives women more reproductive choices. Similar to the pill, really. So it should be no surprise that like the pill, egg freezing faces widespread wariness. As if perfectly timed for the news, Jonathan Eig just published a book titled, The Birth of…

  • How to Use Frequent Job Changes to Your Advantage

    Dan Campbell
    21 Nov 2014 | 3:00 am
    It used to be that someone who worked at a company for a year or two would have signaled red flags as a risky hire. Today, it’s more common for professionals to change jobs — even careers — more frequently. But this isn’t something new. It’s been heading this direction since the 1940s when a gold watch marked a 30-year employee’s send-off into retirement. While more people are changing jobs at a faster rate, there’s a lingering stigma tied to those with lengthy resumes that hasn’t caught up with the times. Just ask the Millennials who are told that making frequent job…

    Graduating is an exciting time. You’ve most likely spent the last few years planning, studying, cramming, writing, crying, reporting and cramming some more, and now it’s finished — you’ve got every right to be excited! You’re moving onto a new, unexplored chapter in your life and you should be raring to go. This is a great attitude to have; it promotes confidence and implies a state of readiness for the big, bad world. But chances are, you’re not as ready as you think.

  • Really: How Many Choices Do You Want?

    Steve Roesler
    17 Nov 2014 | 8:08 am
    The rallying cry of sales reps, product managers and politicians is "Choices! We offer choices!" My observation?  We really don’t like having too many choices. It makes us a little nervous. Every option leads to a chance to foul something up. Heck, a lot of people are more worried about not being wrong than about being right. So, we allow our experiences and habits to narrow our options to just a couple of familiar ones. It reduces the anxiety and relieves stress. So, how do you make genuine changes faced with the siren song of habits? The first move is to re-capture your sense of…

    You may already have the right people to enable your company to "win"--however you define the word. A couple of years ago I was involved in designing a leadership program to develop the top talent in a global company. We created a model that used the senior management team as coaches for the structured learning activities. First we coached the coaches on how to coach; then we turned them loose. It's been the most effective learning we've experienced in nearly 30 years of leadership development and design. What's happening that works? The top leadership learns a lot about their own abilities.

We start off in a family, play with groups of friends, attend classes, and work in groups and teams. So, woudn't it make sense to learn as much as possible about the dynamics associated with groups?  Some years ago, organizations spent a fair amount of time educating people on the fine points of group dynamics. The research was new and fascinating. New is good. Now that that body of work has been around for a while, it's no longer "what's happening." The human condition--and certainly the organizational…

    This was a newsletter I wrote a few years ago that inspired me to write The Seed. I think it’s such an important message and we have so many new readers I wanted to share it again. What if work wasn’t just work? What if work was a vehicle to live and share a bigger purpose? I believe there’s flawed perception in our society that in order to live a life of purpose we have to leave our jobs and go solve world hunger, feed the homeless, move to Africa or start a charity. While these are all noble causes and many are called to do these very things, for many of us our bigger…

    As I ran on the beach the other day I noticed that certain areas were closed off by fences and signs that said "Sea Turtle Eggs." I remembered reading that female sea turtles swim to shore between May and August to dig nests in the sand and lay their eggs. Months later, the eggs hatch and the baby turtles follow the pure light of the moon back to the surf. In a perfect world, the pure light of the moon guides every turtle back safely to the ocean. However, as we know, we don’t live in a perfect world. Sea Turtle hatchlings instinctively crawl toward the brightest light. On an…

I doubt you’ve heard anything like it before. We definitely broke some rules when we recorded it. The main topics are relationships, dating, and personal growth — nothing unusual about that. What’s unusual is the way in which we made the recordings — and what…

    12 Nov 2014 | 3:04 pm
    When you desire to attract and meet a new relationship partner, a common approach is to be more social, start connecting with new people, and try to be as likeable as possible. I think that’s a mistake. Where does this lead? You may very well find a new relationship this way, but it probably won’t be very satisfying. There’s an excellent chance you’ll end up settling for someone who’s only partially compatible with you. When people are seeking new relationships, they often modify their personalities. They amplify and show off their most socially acceptable…

    One thing I really like about open relationships is the ability to learn through experience more quickly. There are valuable lessons to be learned from a long-term monogamous relationship, but I found that my understanding of relationships quickly accelerated with a more open attitude towards connections. This is a predictable consequence of being able to learn from a greater variety of partners/teachers. As I see it, this is the same learning dynamic that you can gain by working for different companies, with different teams, and in different industries. You’ll surely learn some…

    The standard economic narrative as applied to human history tells us that barter came first, then money, and then credit and debt. In actuality we know that these concepts developed in the opposite order. Debt and credit pre-date the use of money by thousands of years. Money, in the form of early coins, came into usage largely as a way of keeping track of debts. And finally, the human use of barter systems actually arose after money, not before. Barter is employed by people who’ve already learned about money, and barter systems often use an equivalent of money to manage trades, such…

  • Is a Job Interview the same as a sales call?

    Paul Freiberger
    15 Oct 2014 | 2:36 pm
    Is a job interview exactly like a sales call? No, there are clear differences. An interview is not an explicit demonstration of what you can do. Instead, you’ll be asked about your background and your accomplishments. You’ll talk about yourself and your work history. Through all of that, you’ll be selling. Your interviewer is, in essence, your customer, and qualifying that customer is just as important as any product sale, of course. You are the one who benefits most of all. The meaning of qualification is the same even though you are the interviewee. You still must ask questions with…
  • Goodbye Google. Farewell Complacency

    Paul Freiberger
    9 Oct 2014 | 1:09 am
    Michael Peggs publicly (very publicly) told the world last week that Google is not always the dream job. He had pre-announced his departure on September 16 in an article in the Huffington Post, called “I’m Quitting Google in 10 Days: In Search of Me, Myself and I.” He’s not going to get sympathy as he moves on to start his own firm, but his video declaration is entertaining and it makes you think. It certainly gets me curious to keep on eye on his next venture. Good luck Michael!
  • Sell Me This Pen: How to answer the key sales job interview question

    Paul Freiberger
    2 Oct 2014 | 1:50 am
      Sell me this pen. If you’re in sales, that’s the task you’re likely to be given in a job interview. Sooner or later, an interviewer will reach into his pocket, pull out a pen and ask you to hit him with your very best pitch. It’s a task that achieved some fame when it appeared in “The Wolf of Wall Street,” with Leonardo DiCaprio playing the role of Jordan Belfort, a notoriously crooked stock broker. In the film, DiCaprio asks a group of friends he’s recruiting as salesmen for his boiler-room operation to sell him a pen he takes from his pocket. One recruit nails it –…

But that's macro, let's get micro.  Training $$ per employee?  Turnover percentage?  Does that include involuntary? <Yawn>.... Let's roll out something cool, like evaluating innovation spend vs peers.  Check out this chart from Business Insider that shows R&D spend as a % of revenue (email subscribers, display images or click through for the post): As they say... daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaamn. So, you can measure your spend on innovation as a percentage of revenue.

How do you hold the highest level corporate managers accountable when they make decisions that are illegal or unethical?  What do you say to them to make them know you are correct and their decision is wrong?  Using the threat of a penalty/fine for the situation would typically be the way to get the attention of a VP of Finance/Budget, but that does not seem to work.  --Sarah from Syracuse Hi Sarah - Thanks for the question.  I'm going to stay true to the webinar you pinged me about and tell you what HR people I know and respect have learned from Sales Pros in this…

    Want to increase your revenue by 10 percent? Give your employees flexibility. A new Harvard Business Review article says that’s the key to success. For instance, companies that allow employees to work from home at least three time per month are more likely to report growth than companies that have more restrictive policies. Is flexibility practical? A lot of companies can’t imagine functioning without strict rules and constant oversight. But these findings say the opposite is true. When you give flexibility, you get better results. For example, Cisco says it saves $277 million per…

Since social media came onto the scene, the way people look for information on the Internet has become much more conversational.

    In honor of National Disability Employment Awareness Month and Veterans Day November 11, I gleaned some practice tips from recent research studies on physical disability and career development.The goal is to inform and link career development practitioners working with disabled clients to research and resources they may not be aware of. Why should we pay attention to disability in career development? In 2005, one in five U.S. residents reported some level of disability (U.S. Census 2008) with the number rising with large numbers of returning veterans. Individuals with…

  • What the Walmart VP Termination Over a Resume Teaches Us

    Juliet Jones
    17 Sep 2014 | 10:31 am
    Yes, it teaches us not to lie on our resume, not to leave a misimpression or omission about our credentials.  But why did Walmart’s former Vice President of Communications David Tovar feel the need to demonstrate he graduated from college?  I can’t speak for him but we know the answer… it’s because he needed the degree. You need to graduate from college if you want to make a living wage working for someone else. Like most employers, Walmart will not hire you for salaried sales or management without a college degree (example). Want a living wage? Want to be a VP someday?

Particularly in today’s 24-hour and global markets, in which your customers and your competitors can come from anywhere, the maxim’s truer than ever. Change or die, and to do this you’re going to need some good direction. Unfortunately, more often than not businesses fail to adapt. Even massive companies from 1985 have gone defunct. In fact, only 71 companies remain today from the original 1955 Fortune 500 list. Here’s…

    By Susan Prince, JD, Legal Editor HR.BLR.com Employers get ready! Minimum wage increases will affect numerous states across the country during the remainder of 2014 and into 2015. Under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), the current federal minimum wage is $7.25 per hour, but the FLSA does not supersede any state or local laws that are more favorable to employees. Therefore, if a state has a minimum wage that is higher than the federal minimum, employers subject to the state minimum wage law are obligated to pay the higher rate to employees working in that state. Note: The minimum wage…

No. I hope I get fired.” I remember this conversation very vividly. I’ve been there.

I don’t know whether that’s just by coincidence or whether there’s some sort of higher being out there that really wants to ingrain a particular message into my head, but if it’s the latter, it’s starting to work. You see, I never really believed in the quote for a long time – surely if you find yourself going through hell, you turn around and retrace your footsteps until you’re safely out of there … I mean, that makes more sense than…

My teacher tried to help me but had too much on her plate. So she called my mom and told her I was “slow” and that she didn’t have the time to devote to me in class. She went on to tell my mom she thought I might be mentally challenged. Of course my mom protested and told her I was smart and capable just like the other kids.

These are some of the things I learned: 1. I learned that people all over the world want the same basic things: enough to eat, clear water, decent shelter, good health, education and opportunities for their children, an honest way to earn some money and respect. 2. I learned that some of the poorest people on this planet are also some of the most generous. They share what they have, even if it is only a glass of water.  When someone offers you something from the…

    As tablets and wearable devices become more prolific, it looks like the BYOD (bring your own device) phenomenon is here to stay. To learn what executives and managers should be doing to keep their organizations safe and streamlined, I connected with Bill Carey of Siber Systems (creators of BYOD apps RoboForm and Goodsync) to share the most common danger zones and their solutions. Danger Zone: All apps welcome Allowing your employees to download whatever they want leaves your enterprise vulnerable to viruses as well as data storage and productivity issues.

    I recently got an inquiry from the brilliant Bret Silverberg, a Monster.com writer who never stops probing the tough questions. What Bret asked me sounded simple at the outset. What exactly is talent and how should we define it? A talent is a natural aptitude or skill. Talent in the plural is an HR term referring to a population of employees. Bret wanted to know if it could be learned. Personally, I feel that a talent is at least somewhat natural, although you have to practice to refine it. Skills, however, can usually be learned from scratch and most workplace tasks involve…

Rather, it’s the way we make decisions that predicts how far we go in our careers. There are, in fact, four types of decision-makers one finds in the workplace: Leaders This decision-making process places high importance on gathering information and gaining the support of other people affected by the decision. Leaders hold themselves…

    The open office trend has reached a fever pitch, with nearly 70 percent of American workers now residing in them. But is an open office really the best way to go? A few months back in the New Yorker, Maria Konnikova reported that open offices don’t actually do what they were designed to do, which is to facilitate communication and idea flow.  She said: In 2011, the organizational psychologist Matthew Davis reviewed more than a hundred studies about office environments. He found that, though open offices made employees feel like part of a more laid-back, innovative enterprise, they…

Jessica Hagy, author of How to Be Interesting (In 10 Simple Steps), and the blog “Indexed,” notes, “Interesting people build social capital, which is another way of saying that they’re valued by others.

    On LinkedIn there is an article proposing the ultimate interview question.  I don’t agree with the author. Spoiler alert: he says the ultimate interview question is “What did you learn last week?”  The author makes a case for this being the ultimate question… but I’m guessing he is someone who really values learning and curiousity… both great things.  My experience, though, is that most interviewers aren’t even close to ready to ask that question, much less understand great answers to the question. If I were to interview someone right now, I would…

They aren’t taking it lying down, either. They are deleting the app everyone! I repeat: THEY ARE DELETING THE APP. That’s as severe as it gets for tech journos. Now, the real reason they are deleting the app is because intimidating the press is a shitty thing to do. That’s reason enough. Even though some media outlets do dig into the personal lives of tech executives (ahem, Valleywag), most don’t — at…

    Margaret Haun was my great-grandmother. Born in 1909, she died in 2000 and she was a fairly prolific writer, especially in the latter part of her life. I’ve been trying to collect some of her works but they are scattered across many different publications. She submitted to magazines and journals and from what I can find, wrote mainly in the 1970s and 1980s. It’s lovely storytelling that conjures sweet memories of our visits. She did most of her writing for publication from her place in Santa Cruz, California so I’ve been able to find a few references to pieces from the Santa…

Gotta love her! It’s so condescending and meant to diminish my contributions. It’s beyond cynical — and sometimes rooted in the institutional sexism in my industry. Oh. Fucking. Well. I chose this path. I brush dirt off my shoulder on a daily basis. I can do this because I have good mentors who lead by example. But I can’t tell you how many times people tell me that…

    Forgive me for the inside baseball, but I have something to say. Every year, several hundred human resources nerds across the world vie for an opportunity to speak at an event called SHRM’s Annual Conference and Exposition. Much like an RFP process — with no ROI for anyone involved and no transparency — SHRM selects speakers for mega sessions and concurrent sessions. Nobody gets paid, but airfare and hotel are included for a few nights. This year, SHRM selected its speakers in its normal veil of secrecy. I’m not complaining because there are some new names on the…

Well, lots of splashy consultants are walking around this conference talking about the future of the modern workforce. “Things are different, Laurie. Everyone should learn to code.

    “Many people would sooner die than think. In fact they do.”                --Bertrand Russell “Why is talent getting harder to find?” Just a few months ago, one of my long term clients, a managing architect, asked that very question. He’d been through the experience over the past two years of hiring 3 new architects, only to gradually let them go because of their ineptitude. But architecture has no unique grip on the problem. The evidence for failure for newly appointed and promoted executives…
  • How Women Can Use Anger To Their Advantage

    Dan Erwin
    12 Nov 2014 | 7:33 am
    Over the years women and their emotions have taken a beating in the workplace. You know the accusations: women are shrill, emotional and teary.  Having worked with some very tough females over the years, I've never been willing to believe all the malarkey about women and emotions.  I've also noticed a lot of those emotions to be typical of men.  However, whatever your experience or beliefs about women and emotions, current research indicates fairly clearly that women can often benefit from the use of anger. Most of us are familiar with the anger antics of…

    It’s become a recurring storyline for newspapers, magazines, tv and the web. Joe, for example, was a leading candidate for a good position in a hot firm. Before the final recommendation the recruiting firm checked out his use of social media. There was no badmouthing of his current firm. But a 20-something, Joe had sent one “harmless” picture of sexting while in college and the picture was still there. No recommendation for Joe! Even though he was now embarrassed by his college prank, there’s practically no disposal. And the recruiter found it. Surveillance…
  • Do You Have An Immunity to Change?

    Dan Erwin
    30 Oct 2014 | 6:29 am
    Humans differ significantly in their ability to make change.  As a personal coach to executives for more than thirty years, it’s obvious that these differences are the status quo. Desire and motivation aren’t enough—even when it’s literally a matter of life or death. Some, it seems, have a profound immunity to change.  Often, they understand the need for change and they may even understand what the change might look like. But for some reason they seem stymied, and unable ...  to achieve long term change. It's an issue I've worked with for years, and…

    The short answer to that question is rarely. Yet bosses matter a lot because nearly all employees have them.  And most bosses also have bosses. There are at least 21 million bosses in the United States.  Bob Sutton points out that estimates run as high as 38 million bosses.  Far more often than not our success is tied to that relationship with our boss.  It's invitable In organizational structures that we sometimes wonder whether the information coming from our boss is really the truth.

    Unlike growing a chia plant at your workstation, you need to put a lot of time and effort into making your next hire. That’s because job seekers expect responsiveness and communication throughout the hiring process. Setting the right expectations for job seekers from the start — by communicating regularly and effectively — is key to offering a great candidate experience.

    Up until recently, employers had the upper hand in the hiring process. Now, that’s all changed. On the heels of the Great Recession, employers were suddenly getting more applications than they knew what to do with, as millions of highly skilled workers found themselves out of jobs. Many companies took advantage of this and began devaluing candidates with lower-than-average salary offers for highly skilled jobs.

    Business leaders and executives tend to be a rather focused group. It makes sense: After all, they’re tasked with creating and executing successful plans to achieve business growth and profitability. They want (and need) to win, and in order to have the best shot at a victory; they’re constantly seeking ways to gain competitive advantage. This is good news for talent advisors! Why? Because talent advisors are the experts when it comes to the organization’s key source of competitive advantage — the ability to attract, recruit and retain the right people.

    When I was growing up in Grosse Pointe, a suburb outside of Detroit, I lived on a street where all of the other families were married, and my mother was the only single mother on the street. At some point it became clear to me that the other families in the neighborhood did not approve of the fact that my mother was single.

I lost track of this book long ago; however, much of its content was quite memorable. I remember one simple story in particular that had an interesting message, which was very different from every other tale in the book. The story went like this: There existed a man who lived alone and worked at a train station as a ticket taker. He woke up at the same time each day to go to his job. He took his lunch break at the same time each day. He walked home at the same time each day. He…

    Launching a personal website, launching a brand, launching a business. These were some of the key search terms on Google when people wanted to begin building a brand. Many of the personal branding articles share ambiguous advice without real actionable steps to act upon. Launching your brand does not need to take months and months [...] The post Personal Branding: Where to Start When You Don’t Know How appeared first on Career Rocketeer.

    You know how to research companies, how to tweak your resume and even how to answer tough interview questions. But do you really know how to follow-up after the interview? If you’ve been invited to interview it means the company is already interested in you. You will either seal the deal or blow the show. What can you do to woo the employer and land the job?

  • Understanding Millennials- A New Study

    Hannah Morgan
    13 Nov 2014 | 1:31 am
    Millennials often get a bad rap for being tech-obsessed, having an entitlement mind-set and poor work ethic. And while some of this might be true, there are other things you need to understand and appreciate about this generation of 18-34 year olds. You will work with Millennials who are projected to make up 75 percent of the workforce by 2025. In fact, you are working with them right now. How well do you understand Millennials?

    No one who has been unemployed expects it to last very long. The reality is that you will be looking for work longer than you want. You can’t control the fact that it is taking an average of 24.9 working days to fill a position, according to Dice Holdings August hiring report.

  • Three very different creative languages – each one powerful and effective

    21 Nov 2014 | 7:51 am
    Selfie with audience by Figaro singer Jose Adan Perez This past week I saw a comic opera from 1816, a very contemporary dance performance and Iñárritu’s terrific movie, Birdman. Each was so different in form and language. Each one of those performances left me thrilled in its own emotionally intense fashion.  This reminds me not only that there are many diverse instruments and languages we can use to get our own messages across – but also that when I expose myself to several of these creative languages my brain is stimulated far more than when it is immersed in just one of these…
  • Which words should you avoid in your resume?

    michaelpollock
    19 Nov 2014 | 7:53 am
    Heads up: this post appears to be about menus or houses, but don’t be fooled – it’s really about the effectiveness of the language you use in your resumes and pitches. It’s about what words you should avoid, and why. So process accordingly as you read. In Freakonomics, Dubner and Levitt tell us that houses that are pitched as “charming” or “fantastic” sold for lower prices – while houses sold with specific qualities, such as maple or granite, sold for higher prices. Specifics are good – vague generalities are not. According to Dan Jurafsky in The Language…

Clearly, Forbes was surveying the biggest brands, but having five or six agencies involved in a brand that spends under $10 million annually in measured media is commonplace these days.” (MediaPost) So let’s talk interdependence!

    Networking results come from quality relationships. When you’re working the room at a networking function, your goal should be to engage in meaningful conversations and build relationships, not just participate in small talk and amass business cards. Think just as carefully about the cards you’ve giving out. Refrain from handing out your business card to anyone and everyone by shoving it in people’s hands (I’ve even had people tuck their cards into my jacket pocket!). Set a target for how many new people you’d like to meet, perhaps six to eight. In those first few important minutes…

And in the process, perhaps miss out on what could have been an amazing career move...

    Lucy Skipper
    13 Nov 2014 | 4:00 am
    We can find it easy to form opinions on the bosses, managers, leaders in our work life because it’s somehow easier to form views on others’ leadership skills than it is to look at our own habits as leaders. This could be because a lot of us don’t know where to start when it comes to self-reflection. However, if we’re in a leadership position we owe it to ourselves and to our followers to learn how to evaluate our own skills as a leader. Here are some ways to start doing that.

  • Mastering the Art of Change: An Interview with Leo Babauta

    Jennifer Gresham
    18 Nov 2014 | 6:23 am
    In 2010, a chance encounter with Leo Babauta saved me from a terrible mistake. I’d recently had a minimalism epiphany after our family moved for the second time in 3 years. As I unpacked box after box, I saw how our stuff was driving decisions we never consciously made. We mostly bought little things–a new fry pan one month, a toy for our young daughter another–but we also rarely threw things away. Over time, our stuff had become a burden (at least to me). The way I saw it, it was a vicious cycle. The more stuff we needed to store, the more furniture we needed to hold it…

    The choices seem small and insignificant, but they plague you. Should you take a long walk outside or answer your email? Should you watch a movie or work on the book idea you’ve been talking about for years? And when are you going to finally enroll in that Spanish immersion class? Every day you feel pulled in different directions, torn between the things you want to do and the things you feel you have to. And that tension, quite frankly, is wearing you out. Instead of making a decision, night after night you allow yourself succumb to the things you think will make you feel less…

    What I was trying to do should have been simple. I was attempting to hold a small stack of books with my left arm, where my hand cupped one edge and my elbow cradled the other. But I couldn’t do it. I had noticed my wrist getting weaker for a couple of years. And thanks to some back pain issues, it had become clear my office set-up was probably the source of my problem. But I didn’t do anything about it. I didn’t see a doctor. I didn’t look for a new desk. I didn’t even take the simple step of ordering a wrist brace online. The questions is: why did I wait until I had nearly…

    I felt like a KANJOOS. That’s an Indian word for “miser/scrooge/stingy”. It was a Friday night and I had gone out with friends.  We’d seen a show, and headed on to a pub after for a bit. I was acutely conscious of the fact that my wallet was lighter than a hummingbird, and that I really couldn’t afford to be out spending like I was. Having eaten before going out and being an occasional drinker, I’d decided to conserve my limited funds – music, dancing, friends were all I needed that night.  But here was the dilemma – how could I keep this up?!

    I recently conducted some local workforce research on the availability of Licensed Practical Nurses. Part of my process was to post blind job ads, review resumes and analyze if the regional labor force could support the client’s talent acquisition needs. Long story short, the answer was affirmative and the client was satisfied the region’s homegrown pool would do, and a national search and relo packages wouldn’t be necessary. The exercise did however prove once again, that even in the age of seemingly unlimited information on the Internet about how to reply to a job ad — people…

    18 Nov 2014 | 11:52 am
    Hello Lana! What were you doing prior to coming to The Career Psychologist? I was working as an Art Director in advertising for over 10 years. I then had my daughter and suddenly my work/career outlook changed completely. Why did you originally come to The Career Psychologist? After having my daughter I realised that I did not want to work in an office full time. I tried changing my schedule to 4 days a week but my employer wasn’t very supportive.

I can count on one hand the number of people in my life I considered as part of my very own ‘career change dream team’ when I decided to walk away from a soul crushing job in the corporate world. In hindsight I realise just how fundamental my cheerleaders were for me to make a meaningful shift. When I needed it most, they provided words of encouragement, a boost of energy and motivation, and even a reality check when I couldn’t see past my own blind spots!

The thing about difficult career decisions is that they are a ‘hard choice’ in the sense that there is (probably) no right or wrong answer.  (Our process is designed to weed out the ‘wrong’ choice, but more often than not clients are left with choices that still feel difficult to make using reason alone). This, Ruth Chang argues, is what makes them so hard…and so…

It is the comic-book arch villain that has endless resources to hunt down all its enemies, methodically and mercilessly grinding them underfoot, one insignificant dream at a time. No matter how small and underfunded your small business is, you feel as if the IRS has a person, nay, a team, a crack-team of experts combing through your every transaction, just waiting for you to give them a reason to pounce. The bad news is that they do have the resources to make this true, but the good news is that even the…

    As you probably know, internship positions are very difficult to land as there are so few of them. In fact, high competition for these positions has led to an increase in unpaid internships and the US Department of Labor has guidelines for the scope of these positions. If you are unable to land a paying position, we suggest a part-time unpaid internship (in addition to a paid part-time job) as a way to acquire the necessary and desired experience without quite so much financial pain. Securing an internship (paid or otherwise) is largely about tenacity, connections and luck. It requires a…

  • How to Craft a Salary Negotiation Story

    Daisy Wright
    17 Nov 2014 | 8:12 am
    Never bargain or job hunt from a position of weakness. Soar like an eagle, even when you are feeling like a wounded pigeon. –George C. FraserChairman and CEO, FraserNet Inc. Every job seeker should learn how to craft a salary negotiation story long before there is a job offer. It allows them to weigh their options before saying “Yes!” This salary negotiation article, while not written along gender lines, was prompted by the recent comment by Microsoft’s CEO Satya Nadella, who said that women should not ask for a raise, but have faith that the system will reward them well.

      Since 2010, I have been deviating from my job search and career topics to write a blog post on November 11, in remembrance of the many people who paid and continue to pay the ultimate price for the freedom we so often take for granted. I am not from a military family, but I am sure if I dig deeper into my Jamaican ancestry, I might find a relative or two who were a part of the Royal Air Force (RAF) from the West Indies. And, if that’s not the case, at least my father-in-law is a retired Sgt. Major of the Jamaica Defence Force. Today, November 11, 2014, I am paying tribute to the…

    “Worry is a total waste of time. It doesn’t change anything. All it does is steal your joy and keeps you busy doing nothing.” ~Unknown Ouch! Seems like a callous way to look at a serious matter! But, it’s the truth. Worrying about a situation doesn’t change anything. Did you get up this Monday morning worried about something? Are you a ‘serial worrier’ – the ones who worry even when they don’t have anything to worry about. I hope not. This edition of the Monday Rx is not an attempt to trivialize a genuine concern, but to put things into…

It’s like lots that I get from readers & students who’ve taken action: How much did that technique boost Kieran’s consulting rate? A full 50%. Imagine if you got a 50% raise. And Kieran got it using my FREE material. In the last few emails, we’ve talked about getting clients.

Last time, I shared a technique to see whether your market niche is profitable: how you can see if your prospects are both able AND willing to pay for your services (without even contacting them).

Today, I’ll go even further, and show you exact steps you can take to find those things out, BEFORE you even reach out to prospects. The idea for qualifying prospects as both able and willing came out of a job I had years back when I worked as a caseworker for foster children in Chicago.

Now, I’ve done lots of these before, for both my kids. Over the years, I’ve led their classes on a bunch of 1/2-day outdoor field trips, where we traipse around a big canyon near the school, learning about nature, ecology, and seeing rabbits, hawks, bugs, flowers, and having a blast. Last week was a bit different, since it was a (mostly) indoor activity focused on atoms, matter, and…

References should always be from verifiable sources as well as convey a positive and favorable image of your personality, achievements, and skills. Merely asking for a reference is not enough, yet it is a mistake many job seekers make.

Whether you’re looking to make extra money over the holidays or hoping to get your foot in the door at a larger company, the holidays rely on a notable influx in the temporary workforce, one that many job seekers should take advantage of.

  • How to Work from Home Without Running Afoul of the IRS

    Prashant Sharma
    28 Oct 2014 | 9:26 am
    For entrepreneurs and work-from-home types, the IRS can sometimes seem like the bogeyman. It is the comic-book arch villain that has endless resources to hunt down all its enemies, methodically and mercilessly grinding them underfoot, one insignificant dream at a time. No matter how small and underfunded your small business is, you feel as if the IRS has a person, nay, a team, a crack-team of experts combing through your every transaction, just waiting for you to give them a reason to pounce. The bad news is that they do have the resources to make this true, but the good news is that even the…
  • How to Land Internships

    22 Oct 2014 | 8:50 am
    As you probably know, internship positions are very difficult to land as there are so few of them. In fact, high competition for these positions has led to an increase in unpaid internships and the US Department of Labor has guidelines for the scope of these positions. If you are unable to land a paying position, we suggest a part-time unpaid internship (in addition to a paid part-time job) as a way to acquire the necessary and desired experience without quite so much financial pain. Securing an internship (paid or otherwise) is largely about tenacity, connections and luck. It requires a…

A few weeks back, my wife and I loaded up our aging family van and pointed it east for the 1,200-mile round trip to take our oldest child to college. This was the going-to-college adventure we both had envisioned when dreaming about taking our academic overachiever off to university for the first time. We had dreamed of a smiling child who would embrace university life like he was swimming in a warm bathtub filled with knowledge. No longer shackled with the conventions of high school,…

However, doing so recklessly puts you in a precarious position, particularly if you’re making it easy for your current employer to discover what you’re up to. Use these strategies in order to keep your search discreet: Never do anything on company time Besides possible legal complications, it’s also unethical to conduct your job search when you’re technically on the clock for your current employer.

Before you start applying to positions, take a few minutes to think about WHY you want to leave your current position.  Has there been a change in management or operations? Do you feel…

    The holidays at work are a pretty fun time of the year. There is usually less work, more dinners/parties, and of course gift giving and receiving. While it’s not necessary to exchange gifts at work, I find that it’s pretty common for managers to give gifts to their direct reports… and also for close coworkers to exchange. With close friends and family members, you probably know the person well enough to have good ideas about what they would like. Since work relationships don’t always get super personal, it can be tougher to choose appropriate gifts. So what should you…

Q: When should I send a thank you note after an interview? A: Within 24 hours of the interview Why? Well, the primary purpose of a thank you note is to actually show someone gratitude for the time they took to speak with you. The more prompt you can be, the better so send the thank you (by email) as soon as you can. Of course, when you’re interviewing in the middle of your workday, you probably will have to wait until that…

Some days for me, it’s a glass of wine or dinner with friends. Other days, it’s fitting in a workout… but if I’m waking up early or working out after a 10+ hour day, it better be somewhat fun.

    When I think back to graduating from college, I remember how painful that summer was for me from a career perspective. I had a shiny new degree from NYU, a vague idea of what I wanted to do, and no job. Somehow when you don’t have your life figured out, that’s precisely when you are bound to get a million questions about what you’re up to. I don’t think I handled those questions particularly gracefully but probably stumbled through them and got out alive. By October, I had a job and was relieved to have an easy answer for that question leading into Thanksgiving and…

    One pet peeve that really irritates a recruiter or potential employer is when a candidate shows even a little bit of executive arrogance. If you do come off as arrogant the chances of being hired decrease significantly. Simply put, people only hire people they like. Chances are that you may not be conscious when you’re coming off as arrogant. In fact, you may not even think you are being arrogant, but it could very possibly be a different case from the recruiter’s perspective.

    6 Oct 2014 | 7:00 am
    While blogging as a platform has been around for a while, it wasn’t until relatively recently when job seekers started using this social media tool to help them find their next job.

  • Why You Need to Keep Learning (and How to Do It)

    Kate Wilson
    20 Nov 2014 | 4:00 am
    Remember how relieved you felt after graduating from college? That degree freed you from mind-numbing study sessions, maddening thesis papers and seemingly endless tests. You were able to focus on your career without worrying about grades or about going home to a mountain of homework every night. It was such a freeing feeling. One of the biggest myths surrounding higher education, however, is that the pursuit of knowledge is over once you have that degree in hand. If you don’t put an emphasis on learning, you’ll definitely be missing out, both in your career and in your life. Here are…
  • 50 Tools You Need To Get Your Freelance Business Started

    Skillcrush
    19 Nov 2014 | 4:00 am
    By Meredith Lepore Going freelance can be one of the most rewarding career changes you will ever make. And clearly, people have heard about this little secret: one in three Americans (roughly 42 million) are considered to be freelance, and freelancers will make up half the workforce by 2020. Working for yourself is no trend. Working for your self, being your own boss. It sounds amazing. And it is. But all the freedom you gain by becoming freelancing comes with a side of responsibility. As a freelancer, you are literally playing every role in your business in addition to doing the work that…

    We’ve all been there. When a trusted friend, one of the countless online dating sites, or even bottom-of-the-barrel Tinder, sets you up on a date to meet the man of your “dreams.” As you sit and await the mystery man’s arrival, in your head you can hear your BFF saying, “girl, you guys a perfect for each other!” Or you recap the 99.9% compatibility score he received from the dating site. Yet, upon hearing a deep, sultry voice call your name, you turn around only to face a man whose hair appears to have escaped a comb and shampoo for days; is wearing a shirt with a collection of…

    We are constantly moving. Have you ever noticed that? After a full day of attending meetings, pitching ideas, and connecting with other people, we still take phone calls at dinner and send e-mails before bed. In between each Skype call we have, we fit in another task, say yes to another assignment. We work hard and we love the work we do. That’s the way it’s supposed to be, isn’t it? We should not want to take a break. After all, the more time and effort you put into something, the more you’ll accomplish, right? Well, as it turns out, that isn’t the case.

Service members went overseas knowing the dangers but didn’t know if they would make it back. Family members had to live not knowing exactly where their…

    7 Nov 2014 | 9:54 am
    This comes from a client and the insight he gained through our sessions and working with her boss. - Coach Wolfgang When Goldilocks went into the three bears’ house, she found one bowl of porridge too hot, another too cold and the last one just right. In a similar way, your new manager is wondering if you will be too timid, if you won’t communicate sufficiently or if you will be a healthy balance between the two. With that in mind, let’s review how you can achieve that balance that your manager is hoping for. The Loner A solid contributor and hard worker who doesn’t provide much…

    Thanks to Monica Gomez for her guest blog. A brief bio is below. – Amy Most of us prefer to spend time with positive people rather than spend time with negative people. Happiness is contagious, and we feel better overall when surrounded by positive people. Even if you know that you prefer to be around positive people, you may not realize that being around those who are negative actually has a negative impact on your life. Here are six ways that being around negative people can hurt your performance at work. Increasing Your Burden If you’re one of the many people who prefer to be…

My resume is in front of me. Job application, company website, questions I intend to ask… check, check, check! At 8:30 the Vice President of Sales is calling me on my home phone. I chose my home phone since it’s easier to have a conversation on a land line rather than a mobile phone line. It’s 8:34 am… I check my cordless phone handset – no missed calls, power on.

    Usually when Thanksgiving comes around I tend to focus on the first part of that word…the thanking.

It always results in awkward pauses while people try to come up with something actually meaningful.

  • A Career In Sales- Everything You Need to Know

    Biron
    5 Nov 2014 | 4:40 pm
    Very few people talk about corporate sales as a career option in highschool or college. Everyone learns about the various career paths in Finance, Accounting, Science, Engineering, etc because those topics can be studied specifically. Because schools cannot (or do not) teach sales techniques, you’re not usually introduced to this option. It’s a pretty well-kept secret but the reality is that sales people make a ton of money with just a Bachelor’s degree (or sometimes without one!). And forget the stereotypes about how a career in sales requires an outgoing or extroverted…

    I didn’t create this video but I found it invaluable and fascinating and wanted to share. It was shown to me yesterday.   The video is a 40 minute compilation of 50 startup founders discussing how they came up with their ideas. These are founders of top companies like Facebook, Spotify, Instagram, Airbnb, and many many more. Incredibly valuable to anyone who ever hopes to start their own firm. My takeaways from the video: Learning how to write code is pretty valuable. I wish I knew how. Maybe I should learn. Once it’s time to scale up a project and really make it mainstream,…
  • The Best Subject Line for Job Applications

    Biron
    3 Nov 2014 | 7:52 pm
    I previously wrote this article about the best email subject lines for followup emails. A couple of people asked me specifically about subject lines for initial job applications, so I wanted to write a brief post to address this. If you read my first article, the same general advice applies for job applications- get specific. Generic subject lines like ‘Resume Submission’ or ‘Sales Job Resume’ are likely to get mixed in with all of the other applicants and either delayed or forgotten. The solution: Make sure your subject line is specific. Here’s an example.

    Ask yourself this question: what would you do if you knew you couldn’t fail? Start a company? Become a writer? Photographer? Whatever you decide, how close is it to what you’re currently doing? And if it’s not even in the same ballpark, it’s time to ask yourself why. Fear of failure is a pretty common reason holding people back from attempting their dreams. Here’s the reality though- if you don’t attempt something, you’ll never ever reach your goal. This is 100% guaranteed. If you don’t pursue your dream job because you decide you’re…

    By Julia Richardson -Picture if you will, you’re an employer or a recruiter and in front of you are two resumes. One is wall to wall text that contains a variety of fonts, bold words and even underlined words. The second contains a lot of information but you can read through it quickly because of the clear, crisp formatting. Of these two, which would you choose first? Many of employers are evaluating multitudes of resumes each week and are more than likely going to go for that second resume to read first. This is because the second resume is easy on the eyes and can be read quickly. The…

    By Julia Richardson – We often hear the phrase “harassment in the workplace” with little thought as to what it actually means and the legal ramifications. Generally speaking, harassment in the workplace could be verbal or physical harassment and if based on sex, race or religion and is both unlawful and discrimination. Any unwelcome or discriminatory conduct is considered to be harassment by law when it is such a problem that it has a negative impact on the working environment. If a supervisor is the one who is doling out the harassment that has the result of an obvious…

There is gray area and many of us encounter it daily. Although we wouldn’t consider these “white” lies to be devious, they serve a purpose – some beneficial to us, some beneficial to others.

There’s not much to do but tune it out, but every time it stops for an extended period of time I’m struck by how peaceful it feels. The silence is almost palpable. Every time I experience that silence, I realize how much tension the jackhammer has been causing – both in my mind and my body.

  • You Won't Believe How Scary These Resumes Are

    6 Nov 2014 | 5:00 am
    When you embark on the job search, updating your resume is the natural first move. Resume writing is where you devote significant energy, in order to increase the likelihood that the recruiter will stand up and take notice. But it doesn’t bode well if the recruiter flags your resume for all the wrong reasons. In the spirit of Halloween, let’s highlight some of the scariest types of resumes out there: 1. The template. No, no, 1,000 times NO. I beg of you: please do not use a Microsoft Word resume template. I cannot express to you deeply enough how unimpressive that appears to the reader.

It is about discovering our unique gifts and then using those to create our livelihood and life’s work. For me, reading this book reinforced what I’ve known and seen successfully demonstrated throughout my 16 year career as an HR coach and consultant; that is, when we work from our strengths and let our unique abilities shine through, we are most…

  • 9 Networking Groups That Will Change the Way You Find A Job

    3 Nov 2014 | 5:00 am
    Everyone should know by now that networking is the best way to find a job. Where job boards have a 3-10% effectiveness rate, and probably less now that Applicant Tracking Systems (the software that will rank your resume) are becoming prevalent, networking has a 30-60% effectiveness rate. Referred people are less risk and have a higher retention rate – that’s why companies offer referral bonuses to employees who recommend someone who has been hired.

When you see you’ve been rejected in black and white it’s can take the wind out of our sail as a job seeker. After we get a rejection letter and recover our balance the tendency is to shy away from that company, those people and maybe even that type of job. It can and often does, change our behavior and often not in a way that serves us well. Don’t let that be you. Let’s look at a rejection letter first and then what your actions and behavior should be following a rejection letter. What Does A…

    Every day we are presented with choices. What to eat, what car to buy, where to go on holiday, what movie to watch. Most decisions we make are trivial, and often we don’t even notice that they really are decisions at all. After all, if everything we did involved a momentous decision, it would be a difficult world to live in. Occasionally we’ll need to make choices where all the options are positive – if you choose path A, you win, and if you choose path B, it’s still great, but simply a different way to go. These types of decisions can be fantastic – it’s a…

    Workplaces can be the strangest of settings. The intoxicating mixture of different personalities, egos and varied aspirations creates a multitude of potential issues as well as great stories and long-lasting friendships. However, when navigating your workplace, it’s extremely important to be aware of how you present yourself to others. I’m harping on about it again – and will continue to do so until everyone knows it – self-awareness is key. There is a unique creature in the workplace that sometimes rears it’s head, often resulting in significant, almost audible…

    Have you ever come across a job that you think you’d be perfect for, but you don’t feel like you have quite the right skills or experience that were stated in the advertisement? What did you do? Did you apply for it, hoping that your CV intrigued them enough to interview you? Or did you let it pass, thinking it wasn’t likely they’d be interested? No, I’m not suggesting that you should try to get jobs that you are not at all qualified to do, only those that are possibly *just above* your current skills and experience. While companies often seem to be looking for…
  • Perception is (almost) reality

    ucareerstrategy
    6 Nov 2014 | 2:14 pm
    The way we are perceived in life and work is a critical factor in successfully getting to where you want to go. Although we have all met people who “don’t care what others think”, the reality is that a bad perception can eliminate potential opportunities, so it’s a good idea to cultivate a good impression where possible. What often happens in workplaces or the job market is that people use shortcuts to generate their own impressions of others rather than put in time and effort to understand the truth. The reason? It is far simpler to adopt a superficial impression…

    Sometimes work is tough, regardless of what career path you’re on. You’re going to meet roadblocks, challenges and difficult people along the way. It doesn’t matter if you’re trying to start your own business or working for an organisation, the challenges will be there. Some people are blessed with a positive mindset that seems almost unshakable, but others are not so fortunate. If you fall into the latter category, it’s worth taking the time during your week to actually sit back and re-frame what has been happening over the past week or months and grabbing as…

    A couple of months ago, I wasn’t really paying attention to my LinkedIn profile. I had applied some basic best practices, but honestly – it was pretty average. I didn’t post on there much, and I hadn’t put a lot of effort into it. Then some changes and opportunities came up in my life, and I wanted to make sure I had a strong LinkedIn profile that really did me justice. I wanted it to showcase my skills and experience in a way that proved my credibility and the showed the value I bring to the table… So I started looking around at what the best people are doing on LinkedIn these…

    For-Benefit companies are taking over the world, and if you want your dream job… Where your contribute your strengths to a meaningful purpose… And make a great income AND impact in the world… Then the new, “For-Benefit” sector is where you’ll want to begin your search. Now, if you’ve seen the movie Office Space, then you’re familiar with what would be the exact opposite of a For-Benefit company’s culture. Beige cubicles. Miserable employees. Red staplers. Milton from “Office Space” protecting his Swingline stapler You get the picture. So what’s the alternative?

    Fun Husband Fridays Since I started dating my wife in 11th grade, we have been through MANY anniversaries and birthdays with barely enough money for a candle lit ramen noodle lunch at times (candles were too expensive!).  Because of this, I have become much more creative with our gifts than I ever thought.  One of my most successful gifts only cost me about $20 in printing costs but was “The most thoughtful thing ever!”, according to my wife. I had our story put into book form.  We have a million inside jokes and funny stories that got us to where we are today.  I just took those and…

    Don’t settle!  But if you do compromise, do it with a purpose!  You can’t always get your way on everything (shocking), which means that you have to compromise occasionally.  If you must compromise, make sure you are doing it with an end goal in mind.  A prime example is taking a job that you really don’t want, but doing so with the understanding that you are building your skill set to put yourself in a position to get that coveted job later on. Take Action Today Have you settled for something lately?  If you have, will the end result get you closer to your goal?  If not…

    Would you ever reward a child with a cookie for eating all of their vegetables BEFORE they ate them in hopes that they would eat more vegetables?  As a father,… I can tell you the answer is NO!  All you would do is set the expectation that they can have the cookies without doing the veggie work first.  Then a few years down the road you might have an overweight kid with horrible eating habits that are hard to reverse.  Now put that into terms of money and success.  Too many people assume that they will be successful in the future and spend all of their current earnings or more to…

    Want to know the number one mistake of selling? Selling features, not benefits. This one concept can take your resume from a bland run-of-the-mill resume, to one that stands out and explodes your interview rate. Imagine being a supplement salesmen trying to pitch a multivitamin to someone who knows nothing about your product (note: a hiring manager typically knows nothing about you before your resume). Compare these two different pitches. Pitch number one focuses on the features of the multivitamin: This multivitamin has 45 milligrams of vitamin C It also contains 10 mg of iron! The pills…

    “I could never achieve that. I’m too young/old/poor/uneducated….” Recognize any of these thoughts? Unfortunately, our thoughts have a tendency to talk to us in ways that are not so productive. Thinking is rational and logical and often cherished as such. But to be honest, our thoughts are usually the #1 culprit to both misery and inaction. I’ve been interested in […]
