Struggling to find a job in your industry? Don’t discount the benefit of volunteering. If you volunteer your time in the field of work you are interested in, you still have the option to work a part-time position and make money outside of that industry if needed. This really helps fill gaps in your resume and allows you to network. Two key benefits of volunteering: Networking – While you are volunteering you are able t...

by Joshua Waldman - Dec, 2011
If you are big into personal effectiveness then you are familiar with Steven Covey’s 2nd Habit: Begin With the End in Mind. Actually, this principle extends far beyond the realm of self-help and into all aspects of our lives. A Sculpture is first conceived of in the mind of the artists, and then emerges from the stone. A symphony is first heard in the mind of the composer, and then written to the score. Likewise, in yo...
Create an Executive Brand by Telling Your Story
by Louise Garver - Dec, 2011
Think of Coca Cola. Do you have a picture of a can of Coca Cola clearly in your mind? What do you see? Red and white/silver aluminum can with distinctive lettering. Now picture a glass of coke, just an ordinary glass with a dark colored beverage inside. It could be Coke, but it could also be Pepsi; it could even be root beer. If the ‘resume’ of Coca Cola just talked about a carbonated soft drink in general terms, and didn’t re...
Is job hopping an issue for job seekers?
by Miriam Salpeter - Dec, 2011
Is job hopping an issue for job seekers? This was another of Quint Careers’ questions for those of us selected as “Career Masterminds” as part of their 15-year anniversary celebration. This was my reply: I attended an event hosted by iRelaunch, and a panel of hiring managers and recruiters discussed this question.

Leaders .... What's Your "Likeability Factor"?
by Andy Robinson - Dec, 2011
Leaders .... Stay conscious of your "Likeability Factor." Are others drawn to you because of your friendliness and approachability? Do you make an effort to help others -- whever possible -- feel better about themselves? Do you tend to seek out and point out the "good" in others' situations and circumstances? Do you opt for kindness over trying to be right? Likeability is a magnet -- When you're likeable, pe...
The Art of the Exit
by Dee McCrorey - Dec, 2011
This past year I've experienced "transitional speed-up" while writing Innovation in a Reinvented World, a reminder that embracing the ebb and flow of disruption is the norm in this new reality. The speed of change and the degree of complexity in solving big problems in the new world of business requires a faster regeneration of our innovation DNA. Our ability to manage beginnings and endings, entrances and exits with agili...

ABOUT YOUR FUTURE
by Nan S. Russell - Dec, 2011
When faced with catching a fly ball, Lucy missed again. "The past got in my eyes," she told Charlie Brown, "I thought I had it, but suddenly I remembered all the others I'd missed." In two decades in management, I've known hundreds of workplace Lucys. People who let their past get in the way of their future; who self-determine what they're going to do, can do, or might be able to do by what they didn't do, haven't done, or...
Four Generational Clash Points at Work
by Dr. Maynard Brusman - Dec, 2011
An argument can be made that the different generations represented in the workplace view work in four ways that can create conflict that must be managed to ensure full engagement. Learning how to work, live and play together is crucial, and every manager must master ways to bridge generational gaps.
