by Walter Akana - Jun, 2011
When I think about how people make career choices, I often recall the scene from the classic movie, The Graduate. In it, a well-meaning family friend, Mr. McGuire, corners young Benjamin resulting in the following exchange: Mr. McGuire: I want to say one word to you. Just one word. Benjamin: Yes, sir. Mr. McGuire: Are you listening? Benjamin: Yes, I am. Mr. McGuire: Plastics. Benjamin: Just how do you mean that, s...

by Miriam Salpeter - Jun, 2011
When you’re in the midst of a job hunt, you never really know what will make the difference between being hired and coming in second place. When there are many qualified candidates, employers often rely on subtle, nuanced reasons to choose one candidate over another. Maybe one applicant seemed to have strong observational skills or one candidate seemed a better fit for the team than another. One way to help you stand out fr...

“Check it out,” said my husband as we zipped out of a parking space past a gaggle of cars. “What!!?” (I always miss these things). “That window sticker, didn’t you see it? Who Rescued Who?” If you don’t own a dog, or more accurately, aren’t a member that exclusive little club that has RESCUED a dog, the humor might not be obvious.

Working for a Tough Boss
by Suzanne Bates - Jun, 2011
Shakespeare once said, “Heavy is the head that wears the crown.” If you are a boss you may feel frustrated when you get feedback that people perceive you as tough. Is tough a good thing, or not?

Recently I came across an article on Boston.com with tips on dealing...

Ok. I admit it. I like to play Chuzzle. After a long day of ferreting out client information and formulating presentation strategies, I like mindless, no-thinking-involved entertainment. Chuzzle provides it. Briefly, you match three (or more) of the same color fuzz balls by moving the columns up and down or left and right. They giggle, explode and accumulate points. New fuzz balls drop into place until you’ve exploded enoug...

Enough Already: Why Now is the Perfect Time to Pursue Your Career Dream
by Elizabeth Freedman - Jun, 2011
At some point you just have to make the call, stop hemming and hawing and decide that it’s time. At some point you have to stop getting ready to get ready to make the career change that you fully intend to do once you’re ready. You have to stop telling yourself that you will do it…once you’re not so busy/once you graduate/once the kids graduate/ once your closet is finally organized and life is perfect.
