It’s your life. It’s your career. Stop apologizing.
by Dawn Bugni - Mar, 2012
Three times this week, (and it’s only Wednesday), I’ve had clients say to me, “If only I’d …”, or “How am I going to explain this gap in employment?”, “What will ‘they’ think, when they see …?” and other, self-deprecating comments about their career and the choices they’ve made in their lives. To which I gently SHOUT, “Stop apologizing for events and decisions you cannot change. Find the value or diminish the event, but stop c...

The Stress in Ame...
The one thing you need to start your new job
by Mary Sherwood Sevinsky - Mar, 2012
One of my hardest working job search clients got a job offer for not only a good job, but THE JOB he told me he wanted at our first or second meeting. Both of us were on top of the world – back to work! We talked on the phone several times to ensure he was completing everything required of the employer for the hiring process: Drug Screen Completed Drug Screen Passed Formal Application Submitted Background Check...
What do you believe about your career?
by Deborah Brown-Volkman - Mar, 2012
What do you believe about your career? In a world that puts out a lot of negativity, it's a challenge to think positively. But unless you do, your goals won't happen. A negative attitude holds you back. It makes you doubt yourself and your ability to reach your goals. People talk about "belief" as this thing that only works for people who are successful. Ask these same successful people what they owe their success to an...
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...
