Reaching a Goal
by Jan Melnik - Jun, 2011
I’ve been on hiatus from my blog (not my clients, not my private practice, and certainly not my family)… simply because “something had to give.” This past spring I was in the final push to complete my master’s degree and write my culminating project. I can happily report that after three-and-one-half years of diligent, rigorous effort, I earned my Master of Arts degree (Humanities) from Wesleyan University on May 22… summa...

The online world has plenty to offer the executive job seeker. Unfortunately, many executives either aren’t yet on board or don’t completely understand the benefits of boosting their brand over the Internet. One great way to get started is by guest blogging with Web sites in your field. Haven’t considered this as an option yet? Here are some reasons to get started on this venture right away! You Can Widen Your Audienc...
Are your current capabilities limiting you?
by Christine Hassler - Jun, 2011
A woman at a seminar I was at last weekend stood up and shared an “aha” moment that I thought was brilliant so of course I want to share it with you! She said, “I am realizing the importance of focusing more on possibilities rather than my capabilities.” The crowd made a collective “ooohhhh” as we all realized the powerful distinction she made. How many times have you wanted something but you’ve used the excuse of “I don’t...
Personality Assessment for Personal Branding
by Debra Wheatman - Jun, 2011
Who are you and in what type of workplace do you thrive? A personality assessment can tell you a lot about the sort of environment that might best suit your personality and work style. Will you function best at a large international organization, or at a smaller firm with satellite or home-based offices? Using Myers Briggs or a DISC assessment, you can gain valuable insight into the things that drive you, in turn enabling...
Rejuvenating Your Career Goals
by Louise Garver - Jun, 2011
Spring is finally here and with it comes a sense of renewal. One area of renewal can be about our careers. Is it time to rejuvenate your career goals … to refocus … to plan? A well known study of Harvard students ten years after graduation showed that those who had specific goals made three times the annual salary of average Harvard graduates. However, this number was increased exponentially by those graduates who had take...
Five Keys to Finding Motivation
by Heather Mundell - Jun, 2011
Earlier today I was really unmotivated to write a blog post. But as you can see, I went ahead with it. Most days I talk to at least one person who is having a hard time getting motivated. Motivation is one of those things we can never have enough of. Often it becomes impossible to find when there's a task ahead that is either daunting, dull, confusing, or uncomfortable. And sometimes we're not motivated to do anything, e...
How having your own website helps you
by Miriam Salpeter - Jun, 2011
I always think one of the most frustrating aspects of job search is believing you’ve “done everything,” but aren’t finding an opportunity. I’ve never met a job seeker who actually has “done everything,” though, which I think is good news! Most people are very focused on out-dated tools and spend a disproportionate percentage of their time doing the same thing, over and over, without different results. There are so many grea...
How to Fight Boredom and Become More Motivated at Work
by Tai Goodwin - Jun, 2011
Once you’ve decided to make the transition from employee to entrepreneur, it can be extra challenging to stay engaged in your day job. Especially if the work you are doing is not challenging. When you’ve got exciting business ideas that you are itching to execute the doldrums of your 9-5 can feel like a straight jacket. Maintaining motivation on a daily basis in the face of boring assignments, office politics, and a chaotic en...
How to Get a New Job Using Social Media
by Debra Wheatman - Jun, 2011
Did you know that 85% of available jobs are never advertised? Yes, it’s true. According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, only 15% of today’s career opportunities ever make it to the job boards. And – when they do get advertised, the competition is fierce. So why do so many job seekers spend so much time searching job boards for work? My guess is that it is the path of least resistance. It is easier to sit back and wai...
Make Your Career More Social: Show Up and Engage
by Walter Akana - Jun, 2011
It often seems to me that many people in the career transition space continue to party like it’s 1999. That was the year when we were all concerned about defending life-as-we-knew-it from the looming Y2K Bug. Had disaster struck, it would have included a setback for job seekers who were just discovering the newly minted monster.com that promised to ease the process of applying for jobs. Fortunately, catastrophe was averted, an...
