Two More Job Search Frustrations
by Jason Stauffacher - Jul, 2010
This week, I’ll address two common job-search frustrations found in the hundreds of emails I’ve received this year from people across America Do either of these apply to you? Frustration #1: There just aren’t enough jobs out there to apply for. Solution: Let’s analyze this one … When I speak to job hunters, in seminars, by phone, or via email, I ask the same question: “How are you looking for jobs?” Almost invar...
Interested In a New Career Path? Try These Steps to Get Started
by Beverly Jones - Jul, 2010
Chances are that you have a career switch in your future. Maybe changes in your professional field will force you to look for something new. Or maybe you will elect to step off the treadmill and find a career that is less stressful or more personally rewarding. Perhaps, like me, you’ll keep things interesting by reinventing your career several times. If you are beginning to think about a new career direction, but don’t know...
You Don't Need An Expert
by Nan S. Russell - Jul, 2010
You don't need an employee engagement expert to confirm what you already know and Gallup polling substantiates: the majority of employees are disengaged at work. You don't need an employee survey to tell you why discretionary efforts are tamed, passions for work are fleeting, and ideas are tethered. And you don't need a consultant to explain why cynicism is up, enthusiasm is down, and trust is the new workplace currency. Al...
How to network when you hate to network
by Elizabeth Freedman - Jul, 2010
We all hear about how important networking is for our careers, but many of us simply don’t do it. In fact, some of us hate the practice, and would rather eat an entire copy of my book, Work 101: Learning the Ropes of the Workplace without Hanging Yourself, (sorry, shameless plug) than network, even if it meant we’d wind up in better jobs with better opportunities as a result. Does this make any sense to you? It’s time to gr...
What to do when offers for help don’t pan out
by Elizabeth Freedman - Jul, 2010
First, let’s accept a little fact about people: They lie. All the time. So, when Mr. Smith is offering to forward your resume to his contacts, he might be sincere and really mean it. Or, he might have a problem with saying no, might be afraid to disappoint you, so he offers to help, even though he has no intention of doing so. Or, Mr. Smith may have had the best of intentions, but he got slammed with a project at work, or his...
Giving Feedback To Gen Y Employees
by David Lee - Jul, 2010
"Giving Gen Y Employees Corrective Feedback: What Can Video Games Teach You?" One of the biggest complaints I hear from managers about their Gen Y employees is how defensive they get when given corrective feedback. You can dramatically increase how receptive your Gen Y employees are to feedback if you borrow from the world of video games. In video games, feedback is an essential part of the game. It’s how you know you...
What Would Bill Clinton Do?
by Suzanne Bates - Jul, 2010
I’ve never met Bill Clinton but many of my friends have, and all say the same thing about him. He’s so...in the moment. When he shakes your hand he focuses on you like you’re the most important person in the world. For that fleeting moment – 30 seconds or a minute- you believe you’re his nhew BFF. Even if you’re a Republican. That got me wondering – what would Bill Clinton do if his cell phone rang while he was locked i...
Seven Key Aspects of a Professional BUSINESS PHILOSOPHY
by Rob Taub - Jul, 2010
The dictionary definition of philosophy is “a set of principles, beliefs and aims, underlying somebody's practice or conduct”. As such, a “business Philosophy” can be both a guide to help you grow a business, and in the ‘business of careers’ it can be a guide to help you decide what to do...and where to do it. So, define what you consider important, and you can be on your way to uncovering your “best fit” job opportunities....
People Problems Afoot? Get the Words Out! Supervisors As Challenged Communicators
by Dawn Lennon - Jul, 2010
“I’m speechless!” Ever said that? It usually pops out when we’re given unexpected praise or are caught unaware. Being “speechless” is a problem when we’re expected to say exactly the right thing when something important is on the line. Keep your foot in your shoe. We rightly expect our bosses to be good communicators. We need them to solve problems and motivate us by saying the right things at the right time. Being...
Does Your Firm Suffer From OCD?
by Stephanie Thomas, Ph.D. - Jul, 2010
Are you performing proactive statistical analyses of your employment decisions? If you don’t perform these analyses, is it because you are afraid of what those analyses might show? If so, your firm may suffer from Organizational OCD. You won’t find Organizational OCD in the DSM-IV, and it’s not an official medical diagnosis. But it’s a problem I see all too often. OCD is an anxiety disorder in which a person has an unreason...
