When Your Career Is in a Tailspin, Remember That Nothing Is in Stone
by Mindy Thomas - Aug, 2014
I get knots in my stomach when I hear about how twisted this job market is becoming. Frankly, the stories are never ending. From nurses at Penn who are completely skilled in their profession but have new educational mandates to complete by a certain date (or else!), to recent college graduates who are overwrought with confusion about what to do next, to baby boomers who are pressured to take severance packages before the ax hi...
How others can learn from Gen Y’s work/life balancing act
by Corinna Klawon - Aug, 2014
I stumbled upon an article that described what Millennials value the most when looking for a job, and an overwhelming majority prefers a job that allows them to have flexible hours and remote work locations for a healthier life/work balance. You ask why do we pursue that? – simply because we strive for self-contentment. For a long time, established magazines referred to us as the “Me, me, me” generation, which created this...
Stressed at Work? Read Your Desk Calendar
by Jessica Stasiw - Jul, 2014
I fully embrace technology, really I do! There are times though that just holding a tangible item, like a book or a piece of paper, helps me feel at ease. To keep your sanity you need to have something that will put things into perspective when the room won’t stop spinning. For me, it’s a simple desk calendar that I bought at the local Barnes & Noble. Every year I go after Christmas and I sift through the clearance cale...
Smart Women Thirst for Knowledge
by Dorothy Montgomery - Jul, 2014
“Smart Women Thirst for Knowledge” is a slogan on a coffee mug given to me from a very dear friend. I love this quote and display it in a place I can see it every day--my bathroom. Yes, it’s a cup holder for my toothbrush and tooth paste. May not be your classic toothbrush and tooth paste holder but it works for me! Seeing that coffee mug this morning reminded me of a radio show I just recorded with a marketing manager f...
How to Conquer 5 Common Workplace Distractions
by Adrienne Erin - Jul, 2014
Everyone wants to be a productive employee, but some people are better at maximizing their efficiency than others. Sometimes you might even be aware you’re being distracted from the job at hand, but you feel powerless to stop it. You know how it goes: you drive to work sorting through a mental checklist of tasks for the day, convincing yourself you’ll definitely get all or most of them done, but things change when you actua...
Is it time to change my job?
by Julie Walraven - Jun, 2014
Many people mistakenly think that professional resume writers do better in a bad economy with high unemployment. Nothing could be further from the truth. Though I work with people who are unemployed and though I worked with both unemployed and those who want a career change throughout the recession that started in late 2007, it takes a good economy for professional resume writers to thrive. I’d like to discuss why you s...
Avoid These 5 Common Career Change Mistakes
by Louise Fletcher - Jun, 2014
Are you feeling stuck in your current career? Dreaming of making the move to more fulfilling work? I totally understand. Throughout my career, I’ve made several career changes. I’ve worked in retail management, HR and now resume writing. In fact, I’m currently embarking on yet another career (albeit this time it’s a second career) as a professional artist. Each of these moves enriched my life and I’m glad I made each one...
A Blueprint for Telecommuting Success
by Jill Kurtz - Jun, 2014
Our roads are congested, gas prices are high, and internet access is just about pervasive nationwide. Despite these realities, most jobs still operate under the 40-hour butt in an office seat model. There is a Federal law that allows for telework and the President has just issued a memo calling for more telework options. But many organizations seem reluctant. People can work effectively from remote locations but the busines...
Is Your Job Leaving You, or are You Leaving Your Job?
by Rowe Leathers - Jun, 2014
As a career coach, I find that among the most common reasons why a person leaves a job is to find something “better.” My response is typically, “What kind of better?” Salary aside, what are you really looking for? There are a variety of reasons why people leave their jobs, oftentimes feeling that they are ready for bigger and better challenges. Other times, it is because they feel their position is a dead end with no room f...
Do You Have a Personal Philosophy That Drives Your Life and Career?
by Dorothy Montgomery - Jun, 2014
On my desk at work is the philosophy of Charles Schultz, the creator of the “Peanuts” comic strip. I’ve had a love affair with the Peanuts cartoons, books and greeting cards for a long time now, so you’ll always find Charlie Brown and the Gang around my home and office. Did you know Charles Schultz struggled in his career? This cartoonist had every cartoon he submitted rejected by his high school yearbook staff. Even af...
