Job Searching During The Holidays
by Katie Lindbloom - Dec, 2009
Job searching at anytime can be discouraging, but hang on because it is especially hard during the holidays.

A Vision Without a Plan Is a Hallucination
by Rob Taub - Dec, 2009
Success is not always something you necessarily find when you arrive. It may be the journey that gets you there. It seems as though people make career management more difficult than it has to be. When something threatens to make it simple, they almost invariably find a way to make it more complicated. For example, in recent years there's been much more activity in the small- to mid-size companies, yet the majority of people...
Personal Branding for Dummies
by Mary Sherwood Sevinsky - Dec, 2009
Personal branding can be something as simple as a title or label: General Contractor Nurse CEO Stay at Home Mom These “tags” allow others to immediately know something about who we are and what we do. As adults, most of us identify ourselves by our jobs or what we do. We understand others in these same terms as well.

by Bob Roth - Nov, 2009
College students receive their diplomas at the end of the senior year; and, there aren?t many shortcuts to get there. Students understand that they must proceed through college one semester at a time, take the required courses and successfully complete each course with a passing grade.

Five Tips on Giving Performance Reviews
by Suzanne Bates - Nov, 2009
Tis the season when we are called upon to deliver end of the year performance reviews. Hardly what most people regard as a task of “good cheer.” While these are crucial conversations which can be pleasant, more often they are difficult. Even top performers need guidance, and of course there are those who have slipped or not lived up to their potential. If you tend to avoid conflict or are simply feeling too busy with other...
Maybe Scrooge Was Right
by Nan S. Russell - Nov, 2009

Unfortunately, when you get that question in an interview, the boat answer will probably not work in you...
Five Ways Body Language Can Cost You The Job
by Debra Wheatman - Nov, 2009
What your body conveys can tell far more about your feelings than you suspect. How you stand, your eye contact (or lack thereof), and the position of your hands, among other things send a message. Depending on your body’s language establishes a tone that you subconsciously convey. Most of the time, you have no idea that you are giving off these signals. They are quite automatic.
