Three Reasons You're Earning Less Than What You're Worth
by Tai Goodwin - Dec, 2009
Recently, I began reflecting back to when I began my journey towards earning a 6-figure income in corporate America. I remember spending a lot of time in blame mode. First, I blamed the system for not paying teachers enough. When I left teaching to join the corporate world, I blamed my job for not paying me enough money and my boss for not offering me a raise when I was clearly performing above and beyond expectations. Ch...
Nine Tips for Mastering Email Overload for Busy Executives
by Andy Robinson - Dec, 2009
Before email, SENDERS shouldered the burden of mail. Writing, stamping, and mailing a letter was a lot of work. Email bludgeoned that system in no time. Now the RECEIVER shoulders the burden of filtering, reading and responding to the endless stream of emails we receive on a day-to-day basis. Taming email means training the senders to put the burden of quality back on themselves. What's the best way to train everyone ...
How to Communicate Difficult Stories on Your Resume
by Barbara Safani - Dec, 2009
My son just recently celebrated his birthday. It is a tradition in our family to tell our kids the story of the day they were born each year on their birthday. And while I’ve been telling my son this story for the past 13 years, it has always been somewhat sanitized. You see, my son’s birth was particularly hairy and what seemed like a routine delivery quickly turned into an emergency. For awhile, the doctors didn’t know if he...
Five Ways to Beat the Ugly Networking Stigma
by Kris Parfitt - Dec, 2009
“My intention is to meet five people at this function who I really connect with and that two of them eventually become clients.” My friend was impressed while somewhat doubtful of my declaration. My actual success that night was that I met ten people with whom I connected, but I didn’t find the opening to give all of them my business card. It’s not that I’m shy – by nature I’m quite the extrovert. But I have a stigma about ne...
You Had Me...and Then You Totally Lost Me
by Louise Fletcher - Dec, 2009
I’m watching 60 Minutes and they have on a really moving piece about a small town in Ohio, and they interview this guy who’s probably in his late 40s/early 50s and he’s explaining how he used to have a great job managing a hundred people, but then his company shut down and he can’t find work. There’s a video of him as a senior executive a year ago, and then they show him now, and he’s not clean shaven and he looks older and ti...

Is Your Insanity Driving You Crazy?
by Kris Plantrich - Dec, 2009
Try Something New to Take the Insanity out of Your Job Search I’ve gone to the same mall area shopping for Christmas presents three times in the last couple of weeks. Each time I have gone, I come home less and less satisfied with the amount of purchases I made. I just can’t seem to find what I am looking for at the stores available in that location. With just a week left until Christmas and with more than a few presents le...
What's Supposed To Appear at The Top of Your Resume?
by Laura Smith-Proulx - Dec, 2009
Job hunters are often told that hiring authorities will give their resumes a quick, 10-15 second glance before moving onto the next candidate. However, during my recent survey of recruiters for an Examiner.com article, I found out that it's more like 3-5 seconds. While your initial reaction to this news might be panic, stop for a second and think about it – how are you obscuring your message with all the noise at the top of...
The Art of Working and Reworking Your Network
by John Crant - Dec, 2009
Why is it so difficult for people to turn to network contacts for help on the second or third time? The simple answer is guilt. We all have that nagging voice in our heads that our call is not of interest, and is really a nuisance, to those in our network that we may call more than once asking for help. Many times, we even play out the mental conversations to our detriment, “Why are they calling me again, I can’t help them!...
