Standing Out in a Job Search
by Joshua Waldman - Apr, 2010
Sometimes, there is nothing wrong with defining who you are based on NOT being someone else. Let me explain. When I was in high school, I didn’t really stand out. Despite how hard I tried. Grew my hair long, dyed it green. Whatever it was I tried, it didn’t really work. I was still the quiet, unremarkable white kid in the back of the class. Then, one day the loud speaker announced, “Will Joshua Waldron please come to...
Getting In The Door: Networking with Informational Interviewing
by Julie Walraven - Apr, 2010
In the career and resume industry, career professionals have for years encouraged their clients to go for informational interviews. I have done my share of demonstrating to clients that they have a network, how to use it to find jobs and how to take the first step. I also do my own informational interviewing with both colleagues and clients. For the past few years, with clients, I periodically pick one to have lunch with an...
Why Do We Don’t Do What We WANT To Do
by Shweta Khare - Apr, 2010
There is so much we want to do there is so much we need to do, though simple words are they need and want often forces us on different paths; it does not a matter if we like it or not. We often don’t do what we want to do because of the various hurdles that we have or we make in our lives. But whatever this discussion comes to it is safe to say that it is easy to do what we want to do if we take care of the “need” first. Re...
Driving Your Business: Road Rules for the Mobile Office
by Amanda Guralski - Apr, 2010
Sometimes, a professional life can quite literally be a bumpy ride. My friend Rachel, fresh out of teaching school, often hides out in her car during her lunch break. She needs a quiet place to prepare for her afternoon classes, and has a hard time finding privacy and relaxation at the busy, urban school where she currently teaches. “I loved hanging out in my car, and it became a sort of mini-office for me,” she says. “I’d...
Money Talks. Are You Listening? Your Life Is Your Business.
by Dawn Lennon - Apr, 2010
Money is work. Given the chance, it will manipulate our decision-making. The question is: Who’s supposed to control the behavior of money? That would be us. When we have too little money to get what we want, we borrow and pay interest. When we have extra money, we invest and hope for gain. Too much borrowing and interest eats up what we earn. Poor investing means loss. There’s a lot of “woe is me” around money. When you...
Action Plan - an Interview Necessity or a Threat To Your Future?
by Amanda Guralski - Apr, 2010
Ready. Set. Action plan. More and more, businesses are discovering that employee action plans are an efficient, uniform way to keep employee and potential employee ducks in a row. It makes sense. Before a business becomes a business it is typically birthed through the breeding grounds of a business plan. To transfer that organizational philosophy to the individuals who comprise the business, expecting that they create their ow...

by Nan S. Russell - Apr, 2010
Even now, months after it happened, it surprises me when I think about it. No phone call. No heads up. No discussion. As I opened the email from a business associate, checking my messages from an airport lounge, I expected a routine update. Instead, I read a message severing our relationship. What startled me wasn't that this person decided it best to change a business situation. These things happen. It was how she informed...
