Three Good Ways to Answer the “What’s Your Weakness?” Question
by Lauren Randa Hasson - Feb, 2009
It’s the most dreaded question in any job interview: “What’s your greatest weakness?” Everyone fears it, and no one knows how to answer it. Plenty of us have tried to pass off canned answers like “I’m too much of a perfectionist” or the always popular “I’m a bit of a workaholic.” If you haven’t found out already, these just don’t work. Chances are your interviewer has heard them before. So she’ll probably turn around and...

by Suzanne Bates - Feb, 2009
In today’s economic environment, companies need great leaders. Yet lately much public conversation has focused on whether our economic crisis has been partly the result of too much “leadership testosterone,” both on the trading floors and in the boardrooms of banks and investment firms. Would a more balanced male-female presence have made a difference in averting the current crisis? Many, many experts agree that ideal corpo...

Declare War With Worry
by Deborah Brown-Volkman - Feb, 2009
Are you worried about your career? Would you like to stop? The reason many of us worry is that we have a situation in front of us and we are scared that it will not work out. We are afraid that we will make the wrong decision (again), fail, or look bad in front of others. Uncertainty in our career has us so worried about paying the bills, losing our home, going to war, etc. that we cannot seem to focus on anything els...
When Do You Just Give Up
by Annemarie Segaric - Feb, 2009
When do you quit? When do you say, "This is just not going to work," and then stop? When does it become too difficult and not worth the sacrifice? I'm sure you have wondered about this. I know I have. Everyone working toward a dream or desire wonders about this. Yes, even the most wildly successful people ask themselves this question. So how do you answer it?

by Annemarie Segaric - Feb, 2009
We've all heard that saying before: keep your personal life out of the office and leave your work at work. I don't know about you, but that never really worked for me. I tried to separate the two. I really did. I just never did it that well. I know some of you out there are much better at compartmentalizing things than I am. But doesn't it take a lot of energy to keep your life so separate? When you're going to a job ...

Debate by renowned astronomers from seventy-five countries culminated in the decision to reduce the number of planets to eight "classic" ones. This reclassification got me thinking. Like a company reorganization or leadership c...

Turning a Second Interview Into a Job Offer
by Jeanne Knight - Feb, 2009
Congratulations! You have been called for a second interview. That’s a great sign that a potential employer is interested in you. But it doesn’t mean you’ve secured the job, yet. You are likely one of two or more candidates asked to return for a follow-up interview, so don’t let down your guard.
