The most extraordinary pumpkin in the field wins. Every. Single. Time. Are you the most...
 
  A Guide to Negotiating Compensation
by Debra Wheatman - Oct, 2012
Negotiating is an art, no doubt. Done correctly it will lead to victory. Done poorly it could lead to failure. When it comes to negotiating salary and other benefits in the workplace, nothing makes people more uncomfortable. He who talks money first loses as they say. Why? Well, it’s because the minute you reference your previous salary, the other side has a distinct advantage. If you reference a desired salary, you may put yo...
 
  Before You Can Walk the Walk, You Better Be Able to Talk the Talk
by Debra Wheatman - Oct, 2012
So, you want to change verticals; financial services is no longer your cup of tea -- maybe you are thinking of moving to a role in healthcare.

by Debra Wheatman - Oct, 2012
Career planning is challenging. It can be very difficult to figure out what you want to do. There are so many choices, and a wrong turn can really set you back. Of course, it can also provide for a very valuable learning experience. When considering what you want to pursue conduct a self assessment to understand your skills, interests, and drivers. Speak to friends and family members to get some ideas. Knowledge is power; and...
 
  E-mail netiquette
by Debra Wheatman - Oct, 2012
Why is it that communicating online is such a challenge? The minute we get in front of email, we rattle off messages that are unclear, with typographical and grammatical errors. Why is writing an email different than writing a letter? (a lost art at this point) How many times have you written an email with the aforementioned problems, but other issues as well? Have you ever gone back and read an email and thought to yourself “...

Just as important as it is for an interviewee to put his or her best foot forward, so too is it critical that a hiring manager representing their firm also make a positive impression.

  Seasoned Advice for Mature Workers
by Linda K. Rolie, M.A., CVC - Oct, 2012
A significantly growing population of job hunters, and those who are landing jobs, is between the ages of 55 to 71 (and beyond). You may have heard, “age 50 is the youth of old age” or “age 60 is the new 50” and so on. Various opinions exist about whether age-related biases negatively impact these mid-lifers’ employability. There are mature workers who are far from elder status but feel they are discriminated against due t...
 
  Networking Strategies for the Career Changer
by Heather Mundell - Oct, 2012
My client, Megan, is in her late 40s and wants to change careers. The jobs Megan is considering to target are not easily found online. She's unsure of what are the most common job titles that are most relevant for her to pursue and how to tap into job openings (or whether there even are job openings). I've said this before: changing careers is not for the faint of heart or the person who's in a big rush! Megan, however, is m...
