Nobody Cares About Titles - Or Do They?
by Alexandra Levit - Mar, 2012
Corporate hierarchies are out. Organizations are flatter than ever. Entrepreneurialism is the new best practice. The newest college grads are railing against the establishment, saying they don’t want to “pay their dues” in order to climb the corporate ladder rung by rung, and that they want to do meaningful work right away. And the business world is listening to them. It seems as if the entry-level grunt is a thing of the past...
Another Option After High School: Trade/Vocational Schools
by Randall Hansen - Feb, 2012
Why college? Unless you are one of the lucky few who receive a full scholarship to college, is a college education -- and tens of thousands of dollars in debt for you or your family -- always the right path after high school? As a former college professor, my first response is yes, of course a college education is worth the investment. More and more jobs and careers are professional, white collar jobs in which an undergrad...
How to Obtain and Use References and Recommendation Letters
by Maureen Crawford Hentz - Feb, 2012
As a job-seeker, one of your most important assets is your stock of professional references. Both letters and phone recommendations can elevate a good candidate to a top choice and drop a good candidate down to the no-longer-considered pile. It's important that you manage your recommendations carefully to leverage them in the best possible way. The most important thing is to ask people who have good things to say about you...
WANT MORE BALANCE?
by Nan S. Russell - Feb, 2012
Despite efforts on the Wii Fitness balance game, Wii persists in rating me as "unbalanced." And while it's true I'm feeling a bit stressed with a new book coming out in May, and more commitments than common sense dictates, being balanced is a challenge. Work reminds me of that balance game. Some days, I feel like I'm floating my avatar in a balloon down a lazy river, enjoying virtual sunshine and feeling pretty balanced, wh...
Go with your grain
by Hallie Crawford - Feb, 2012
I recently gave a speech at the GA Tech Alumni group. They are a wonderful group of people who are really committed to finding greater fulfillment in their careers. We talked about the analogy of painted versus stained wood that I normally use in my speeches. It’s about not letting your authenticity be painted over so to speak by a coat of paint, like paint over wood. Instead, imagine that you use stain instead to bring out, o...
Stop Making Career Excuses
by Deborah Brown-Volkman - Feb, 2012
Are you having a tough time in your career? If the answer is yes, know that you are not alone. Things are tough for most people. There are fewer jobs and more work for those that are employed. Workers are over-utilized and stretching themselves thin. It’s a bit crazy out there. Many people I talk to are tired and stressed out. Not ideal conditions to do your best. But sometimes you have to ask yourself, “What is really...
What is Your "Why"?
by Andy Robinson - Feb, 2012
What is your "Why"? Do you have clarity on WHY you do what you do? What beliefs, cause or purpose are you driven by? What COMPELS you to do what you do for a living? Do your clients and customers know your "why"? If your why aligns with their beliefs and needs, you'll be drawn to each other as if by magic. Great companies understand this. Highly successful people embody this. My "Why" is driven by my BELIEFS,...
Can You Be the Jeremy Lin of Your Workplace?
by Lindsey Pollak - Feb, 2012
I simply can’t let the Linsanity pass without getting involved. It’s just too much fun. The short story if you’ve somehow missed it: Jeremy Lin played high school basketball in Palo Alto and in college for Harvard. He received no athletic scholarships and remained undrafted after college. Eventually making his way to the NBA, he mostly sat on the bench, most recently for the New York Knicks. Then, a few weeks ago, due...
3 Ways to Reinvent Yourself on LinkedIn
by Lindsey Pollak - Feb, 2012
We’re already a month into 2012 and most job seekers have given up on their lofty New Year’s resolutions. If you’re in this boat, don’t despair! Instead, use LinkedIn — and a few trusted friends or colleagues — to help you make the change you desire. Over the years I’ve observed the ways that people use LinkedIn to change career direction or perk up a slumping job search. Here are my three favorite reinvention tips: 1....
Get a Job or Retire?
by Betty Cohen - Feb, 2012
With the national unemployment rate currently hovering over 8%, I am still seeing a significant number of clients who are experiencing the adverse effects of suddenly becoming unemployed. Upon losing a job, one possible early outcome of that loss can be the commonly expressed feeling of paralysis or numbness, a sense of being stuck, with an inability to move forward and take some constructive action. For clients soon approac...
