Are you looking in the right direction for your career?
by Miriam Salpeter - Aug, 2011
Last month, while walking in the magnificent Central Park in New York City, I saw a man taking a picture. As you can see in the photo I took of the man (to your right), it wasn’t that he was taking a picture that was striking, but HOW he was taking it — on his back, on the ground, pointing the lens up at the trees. His tripod (if that’s what you call it) covered his body like some sort of shield. Clearly, there was somethin...
Are your perfectionist tendencies helping or hurting you?
by Miriam Salpeter - Aug, 2011
My friend, Ken Revenaugh, who authors the Fast Track Tools blog, often writes about the importance of storytelling in business. He advocates keeping an eye and ear out for stories everywhere you go to help illustrate a point down the road. During my recent visit to New York City, I kept a list of inspiring blog topics relating to career and job search. My favorite inspiration occurred during a visit to the Metropolitan Museum ...

White Collar Professionals Unemployed for 1 Year or More: Investigating Your Job Options
by Ben Ruark - Aug, 2011
If not encountered already, at some point in a protracted unemployment interlude we're forced to decide whether continuing a search for the same/similar position previously held is going to succeed in the near-future; or whether we're on a treadmill-to-nowhere: that we've crossed over some invisible 'threshold of denial' - refusing to acknowledge the harsh reality that our profession's job market exercises exclusionary criteri...

Winning at Working - Shades of Gray
by Nan S. Russell - Aug, 2011
A paperweight sits on my desk, etched in silver with the message: Life isn't always black and white. It serves as a reminder there are few absolutes at work (or in life). Yet, it would be easier if there were; if good ideas from bad, trustworthy people from non-trustworthy, and right paths from the wrong ones could easily be discerned. I've learned in twenty years in management that increasing one's perspective increases th...
5 Ways to Have More Fun at Work
by Lindsey Pollak - Aug, 2011
It’s no secret that “all work and no play” is a bad idea. But what if you could actually play more at work? Wouldn’t that be the best of both worlds? According to guru Dale Carnegie, fun is not just pleasurable, it’s actually essential for career success: “People rarely succeed,” he once said, “unless they have fun in what they are doing.” While every minute of every day can’t necessarily be a blast, I wholeheartedly agree ...

Bosses have employee issues. Employees have boss issues. Coworkers have peer issues. Isn’t working together supposed to be easy? We often set ourselves up for the people problems we face.
