by Andria Corso and Tim Muma - May, 2013
Much like companies, each individual has a brand that follows them around whether they intend it that way or not.

| Job Search Guide - Mistakes You Don't Realize You're Making
by Robert Chen and Tim Muma - May, 2013
Attitudes and behaviors - many of which we don't even recognize - sabotage the efforts people make when looking for a job. A lack of understanding of our own subconscious creates frustration, confusion and hopelessness, as we believe we're doing everything right and still coming up short. Robert Chen is the founder of Embrace Possibility and a communication skills consultant, and he explains to Tim Muma how individuals are hur...
Bouncing Back from “Bad” Feedback
by Julie Cohen - Jun, 2013
Feedback has an effect on you whether you’re receiving it from an annual performance review, a 360 feedback assessment, or a seemingly well-intentioned comment from a supervisor or colleague. Your interpretation of the feedback depends on a multitude of factors including the source, the content, the intention, your ability to change in relation to the feedback, and how you’re feeling when you receive it. In some instances, ...
Can I Really be Satisfied with Work?
by Julie Cohen - Jun, 2013
Do you feel like you fell into your work? So many of us go to law school because it was expected, or we become doctors because it’s the family profession. Professional choices are made because it’s what we ‘should’ do, as opposed to pursuing what we want to do. The results of making these decisions, or lack of decisions, can be varied. For some of us, this path is acceptable. The work may be interesting, challenging, or...
Working Hard and Working Smart
by Emily Chardac - Jun, 2013
Have you ever thought about how hard you're working? As in, you probably take eight hours in the day in the office handling business-related affairs. You leave the office with the intention to go to the gym, eat a salad, meet some friends, and possibly catch-up on your favorite TV programs? On your way home you realize there a few emails handle before the evening. Before you know it you have a five minute meal in the oven and ...

How to Be More Optimistic at Work
by Alexandra Levit - May, 2013
I was born a pessimist. From a young age, my thoughts have gravitated to the glass half-empty mentality, negatively impacting my own life satisfaction and my relationships with others. Over the last several years, though, I’ve been working to change my outlook. Dr. Noelle Nelson, the author of Make More Money By Making Your Employees Happy, thinks this is definitely a good thing. Research from Yale University found ...
Speaking It Into Existence Isn’t As Important As This
by Rich Jones - May, 2013
Positive affirmations ain’t never hurt nobody. But inaction has. I wish I could tell you how many times over the years I’ve tried “speaking it into existence.” I’ve made proclamations to the man in the mirror or to a close friend, which resulted in a “[Hell] yeah!” or “Go be great.” Then I’d swagger away — enthusiasm and endorphins flowing — intent on taking the world by storm before falling into old habits like tv and t...
The 5 Biggest Myths About Networking
by Pete Leibman - May, 2013
If you’re getting ready for graduation, or if you’ve already graduated but you’re looking for a new job, you probably know you need to spend a lot of time networking. But, do you really know what networking is and what it’s not? During my teenage years, I was painfully shy, and I thought networking was a practice used only by the elite and powerful, a group I definitely did not feel part of. What I learned was the opp...
Career Success: Sharpen Your Focus
by Georgia Adamson - May, 2013
Few people can do a zillion things at once, and even fewer can do them well. Career success and the actions that achieve it are just one example of that fact. You might consider yourself a super-multitasker, but I’m betting you don’t do it as well as you think. You only have a certain amount of energy (although some of you have more than others), not to mention a limited amount of time. Even the best of you can’t get more than...

The days of lengthy cover letters and bulleted resumes are fading as employers ask job applicants to present their case in a modern and challenging way—by describing themselves and why they are a perfect fit for a job in 150 characters or less. Borrowing from the style of Twitter (which maxes out at 140 characters) and similar to a quick-and-to-the-point elevator pitch, this new request forces you to carefully select wor...

It’s good to be you. You’re gainfully employed. You’re not worried that your job is threatened by the economy, your performance or the designs of others. Yet…something’s missing. Although not unhappy in your current job, you don’t necessarily see it as being the pinnacle of your career aspirations either. In short, you’re hankering for a promotion.
