7 Clues the Interview Didn’t Go as Planned
by Lisa Rangel - Jul, 2015
The most difficult part of the job search for many is the dreaded interview. Interviews are designed to test applicants to see if they will be a good fit for the company. After an interview, it is normal to spend time waiting for a phone call as you hope to land that next job. However, if you pay attention to a few details, you can probably already tell if you have shot at the job or not. Knowing when an interview didn’t go as...

by Carole Kanchier - Jul, 2015
Surveys suggest most who won lotteries would continue to work. Would you? Do you live to work or work to live? Or, do you have challenges separating the two? If you work for a paycheck, you probably work to live. If you're engrossed in enjoyable activities, you might live to work. Separating work and non-work activities suggests you may strive for balance. Many, who have made contributions to humankind, have been a...

Go Big or Go Home: What is Your Approach?
by Sara Canaday - Jul, 2015
I love this saying because it conjures up images of a highly charged, “just do it” kind of person who is making things happen. On the other hand, I must admit that sometimes this phrase stops me cold in my tracks. I know the value of giving it your all, and I can intellectualize the idea of pushing through my fears and letting go of my aversion to risk. However, I also have a keen sense of my tolerance for a “burn the ships” m...
Research Proves That Delayed Responses Hurt You
by Alexandra Levit - Jul, 2015
Instant ecommunication equals sky high expectations. I’ve talked before about how responsiveness – or lack thereof – can make or break your reputation at work. Typically, I complain about people who never answer emails unless there’s something in it for them at that moment, or who take weeks to do so. However, it turns out that most people’s definition of responsiveness is even stricter than I would have thought. It turns...

Although age discrimination is discouraged by state and federal regulations, anyone with a long career knows how difficult it is for a 55-year-old to impress a recruiter or hiring manager who is 30 years younger.

Multitasking used to be a sought after professional competency thought to be a valuable skill for the busy professional. Research tells us that singletasking is actually more effective and can result in higher productivity and time efficiency. I can envision a woman at work reading this blog while eating her lunch, checking her email, listening to a webinar, and texting her daughter about carpool plans for soccer practice...
The Simple Way to Build Intergenerational Relationships at Work
by Lindsey Pollak - Jul, 2015
If there’s one issue on which all generations agree, it’s that millennials are masters of technology. The Wall Street Journal recently published an article on millennials helping “befuddled” older employees with their tech troubles. Although I don’t love the thought of myself as “befuddled,” I did recently share in my newsletter how I enlisted a willing Millennial (my “Snapchat mentor”) to help me master the app’s quirks....
Time to Take My Own Career Advice
by Sara Canaday - Jul, 2015
Though I help others craft their value propositions and enhance the way they communicate their personal brands, I recently recognized that I might need my own refresher course. I was at a dinner event last week and faced the inevitable question: “Tell me about what you do.” I found myself in the trap of brushing off the question, assuming it was a polite conversation-starter.
