Why I Quit My Toxic Law Job to Teach Yoga
by Katie Chamberlain Kritikos - Aug, 2014
Young and Idealistic: All I Really Want to Do Is Drink Beer At my first yoga class in my high school library in 2002, I discovered yoga as a way to both exercise and relax. Yoga then accompanied me through college in South Carolina and Alabama, graduate school in Illinois and New York City, and law practice in rural Illinois and Chicago. Through the challenges (divorce, autoimmune disease) and triumphs (launching a law...
Do Your Colleagues See You the Same Way You Do?
by Dale Kurow, M.S. - Aug, 2014
Have you heard the saying that goes something like this: if you don’t know who the office jerk is, it’s probably you? You might be a well-intentioned manager that feels like a team player, but there might be something about your approach that prohibits your employees and colleagues from agreeing. Columbia Business School suggests those who are rough around the edges at work don’t necessarily know it. “Finding the middle...
Quitting Your Job? Think Twice, Do It Right
by Carole Kanchier - Aug, 2014
"I quit my job by email since that's how I normally communicated with my boss. But a company's firing by email got me thinking that quitting by email may not be appropriate ..." Have you had enough? Is quitting the right option? If so, resign with class. But first, know why you're leaving. Do you have patience with customers or co-workers? Are company policies and ethics congruent with your values? Do you have sup...
Can I Give You Some Feedback? YES PLEASE!!
by Corinna Klawon - Aug, 2014
It’s that time of the year again, where midyear conversations are being held and feedback forms are being gathered. If you are anything like me, then you also have those initial jitters of “oh dear...what will he/she say?” and, “How can I not make this mistake again?” For me, receiving personal feedback or criticism was something I had to learn how to process. We can tell ourselves that receiving feedback is just another perso...
When Your Career Is in a Tailspin, Remember That Nothing Is in Stone
by Mindy Thomas - Aug, 2014
I get knots in my stomach when I hear about how twisted this job market is becoming. Frankly, the stories are never ending. From nurses at Penn who are completely skilled in their profession but have new educational mandates to complete by a certain date (or else!), to recent college graduates who are overwrought with confusion about what to do next, to baby boomers who are pressured to take severance packages before the ax hi...
How others can learn from Gen Y’s work/life balancing act
by Corinna Klawon - Aug, 2014
I stumbled upon an article that described what Millennials value the most when looking for a job, and an overwhelming majority prefers a job that allows them to have flexible hours and remote work locations for a healthier life/work balance. You ask why do we pursue that? – simply because we strive for self-contentment. For a long time, established magazines referred to us as the “Me, me, me” generation, which created this...
Stressed at Work? Read Your Desk Calendar
by Jessica Stasiw - Jul, 2014
I fully embrace technology, really I do! There are times though that just holding a tangible item, like a book or a piece of paper, helps me feel at ease. To keep your sanity you need to have something that will put things into perspective when the room won’t stop spinning. For me, it’s a simple desk calendar that I bought at the local Barnes & Noble. Every year I go after Christmas and I sift through the clearance cale...
How to Conquer 5 Common Workplace Distractions
by Adrienne Erin - Jul, 2014
Everyone wants to be a productive employee, but some people are better at maximizing their efficiency than others. Sometimes you might even be aware you’re being distracted from the job at hand, but you feel powerless to stop it. You know how it goes: you drive to work sorting through a mental checklist of tasks for the day, convincing yourself you’ll definitely get all or most of them done, but things change when you actua...
Is it time to change my job?
by Julie Walraven - Jun, 2014
Many people mistakenly think that professional resume writers do better in a bad economy with high unemployment. Nothing could be further from the truth. Though I work with people who are unemployed and though I worked with both unemployed and those who want a career change throughout the recession that started in late 2007, it takes a good economy for professional resume writers to thrive. I’d like to discuss why you s...
Avoid These 5 Common Career Change Mistakes
by Louise Fletcher - Jun, 2014
Are you feeling stuck in your current career? Dreaming of making the move to more fulfilling work? I totally understand. Throughout my career, I’ve made several career changes. I’ve worked in retail management, HR and now resume writing. In fact, I’m currently embarking on yet another career (albeit this time it’s a second career) as a professional artist. Each of these moves enriched my life and I’m glad I made each one...
