  Emotional Anorexia: Are You Starving Yourself While Striving Towards Your Career Goals?
by Mindy Thomas - Jul, 2015
I don’t know whether you agree, but I think there is always a cost to leveraging your career in the workplace. I’m talking about the emotional, physical, spiritual, or just plain psychological toll that we pay when we push to achieve our career goals and delay gratification in other areas of our lives. The answer to whether you are starving yourself on any these levels lies deep within you. You and I both know that, in many...
  How to Get an Employee Referral
by Jean Cummings - Jul, 2015
OK, in my previous blog post I noted that employee referrals are the #1 source of hire in corporate America. This statistic comes out of CareerXroads Source of Hire Study for 2014. That means leveraging employee referrals is better than depending on recruiters to find your a job, applying to jobs on big job boards, or using specialty services like Execunet or Netshare. Everyone knows that “networking” has always been the be...
  How to Keep Your Job Search Confidential
by Heather Krasna - Jul, 2015
As a career coach, I get this question often: how do I look for a new job without my current boss finding out? Here are some tips: 1. Lock down your LinkedIn profile. If you are connected to any of your co-workers or your boss, and are also aggressively updating your LinkedIn profile, someone might notice. To ensure your updates aren’t being broadcast to the universe, fix your privacy settings. Click on the tiny icon of you...
  LinkedIn as a Career Motivator
by Rowe Leathers - Jul, 2015
There is no bigger career motivator than the fear that comes from seeing your friends and colleagues move forward in their career when you are feeling stagnant. A new title in a LinkedIn profile is evidence that colleagues in your circle are progressing forward in their careers, and that realization can leave you questioning your own career journey. Rather than letting fear make you second guess your career decisions, allow th...
  Passive Candidates: Highly Perishable – Handle with Care
by Sandra M. Smith - Jul, 2015
When hiring new talent, it is important for hiring managers to understand whether the candidates they are pursuing are active or passive candidates. To distinguish between the two, an active candidate is any candidate who is already active in the job marketplace – this candidate is enthusiastically pursuing new jobs and is highly engaged in his or her search. A passive candidate, on the other hand, is one that is not actively...
  Survey Shows Project Managers Are Stretched to the Brink
by Alexandra Levit - Jul, 2015
New Workfront research shows project managers are so slammed that they are unable to focus on the most important aspects of their work. According to Workfront’s new Project Management Survey, conducted in late 2014 with 384 North American PMs, project managers are being inundated with too much work, lack of visibility into the work being done, and the use of disconnected tools to do the work. As a result, they are left with...
  The “Secret Sauce” to Your Boss
by Bernie Frazier - Jul, 2015
Years ago, I had a boss who played a dual role for me. Fred was my boss and gave me all of the direction, support, challenge, opportunity and even correction required. But, he also served as a mentor in the sense that he would give me career advice that transcended my time working for him. “Hey, I hear the overtime pay around here sucks!” he would say when I would come in way before him and leave way after him. But,...
  The Job Search Money Trap
by Bernie Frazier - Jul, 2015
Earlier in my career, I took a job because it allowed me to start shifting my career in another direction. I wasn’t in love with it but knew it was a good move for me. About 1.5 years into the role, I took a chance and expressed an interest in doing something else within my company. While the results didn’t come immediately, one day my boss approached me about taking on a different type of assignment. I had minimal amounts...
  The LinkedIn Summary Dilemma: Use "I" or Not?
by Jean Cummings - Jul, 2015
LinkedIn profile writing is a challenge. And there are ways in which the LinkedIn profile summary section is still the Wild West. The LI summary is a blank page only restricted by the 2000 character limit. There are no requirements for anything in particular, such as listing your jobs and dates. So why is it important to worry about this? And what should you do? People know that LI is the premier business networking site. I...
  The One Thing Winners Do
by Bernie Frazier - Jul, 2015
A few days ago, I was talking with a friend about a variety of topics. One of the topics was careers. As the conversation evolved, I told her the thing I don’t see many people do that is the most effective thing a person can do for their career – play to their strengths. Instead, people spend time, money, and energy trying to transform the areas in which they are weakest (not challenged….weak!) to only end up moving the dia...
