Does Your Brand Really Communicate What You Think It Does?
by Alexia Vernon - Dec, 2010
Although we like to think that we are pretty good at identifying how others see us, most of us can still use a studio audience from time-to-time to test out our assumptions. I received a clear reminder of this in one of my recent workshops. When sharing her WOW Factor–the 3 most significant and positive qualities about herself–a participant mentioned something that really didn’t ring true for me in the couple of hours I had sp...
Facebook and Your Career
by Rosa Elizabeth Vargas - Dec, 2010
Excuse me. Come again? Are you kidding? What is the first thing you do when you want more information about ANY topic? About a celebrity? About a dream vacation? The weather? You Google it. That's right. I know you do. You Google it. What makes you think you are un-googleble? Simply put, Facebook can affect your online brand, your digital reputation, your corporate identity, and ultimately your employability. The most impo...
Give Your Career a 360
by Alexia Vernon - Dec, 2010
I’m a big fan of individual and organizational feedback–that which comes from others as well as the self-directed, self-reflective kind. When we give ourselves opportunities to take stock we get clearer on what is working (so we can do more of it) as well as that which isn’t working (so that we can self-correct and do less of it). We also stay connected to our personal power. It’s just so darn easy to believe that we are puppe...
Would You Hire You?
by Debra Wheatman - Dec, 2010
I always feel satisfied when I complete a résumé for a client of mine and they say, “I look so good now – even I would hire me.” While having an outstanding résumé that highlights your true strengths is invaluable, it is equally important to seek opportunities that are realistic. Early in my career when I was in corporate HR, I cannot tell you the number of inappropriate résumés I received. It was so bad sometimes that I w...

8 Ways to Make Your Age an Afterthought | Timeless Career Moves
by Dawn Lennon - Nov, 2010
There are a million ways to be self-defeating. Fretting about the impact of our age on our career is a popular one. I hear it all the time: -“I’m right out of college and stuck in an entry level job because I’m the only one who can show my older coworkers how to do stuff on their computers.” - “Because I’ve worked here my whole career, everyone thinks my ideas aren’t cutting edge enough.” -“No one takes my ideas seriou...
How to Fire a Client or Partner
by Alexandra Levit - Nov, 2010
As a business and workplace author and speaker, I’m always getting asked about how to cope with getting fired, or how to fire a wayward employee. But no one ever talks about the best way to cut ties with an individual you’re working with as a client or a partner. In my native world of public relations, the idea of firing a client who is paying you is virtually unheard of. You simply put up with the abuse no matter how sev...
The Dos and Don’ts of Thank You Notes
by Lindsey Pollak - Nov, 2010
Last week I talked about how to ask people for advice. This week, I thought it would be helpful to talk about how to thank people for the advice (and any other assistance) you receive. How perfect that it’s Thanksgiving week, too! Here are my top tips: Email thank yous are acceptable. I admit I’ve changed my mind over the years about email thank you notes. For a long time, I preached the importance of sending handwritten...
by Ariadne Moisiades - Nov, 2010
Just the other day, I had another person tell me all they want to do is work at Google. I get this one a lot, so I’ve started asking why. The response usually focuses on one of the following: • “Because it’s fun.” • “They really support you.” • “They give you room to be yourself.” I also usually hear: • “… and they have great perks.” It makes sense – Google offers great health care, child care, flex time, generous compen...

Here are AOL Jobs' top 10 office turkeys of 2010. 10. Joshua Lee Campbell We've all fantasized about breaking a computer or other office equipment when we get frustrated at work.
