Would You Hire You?
by Debra Wheatman - Dec, 2010
I always feel satisfied when I complete a résumé for a client of mine and they say, “I look so good now – even I would hire me.” While having an outstanding résumé that highlights your true strengths is invaluable, it is equally important to seek opportunities that are realistic. Early in my career when I was in corporate HR, I cannot tell you the number of inappropriate résumés I received. It was so bad sometimes that I w...

8 Ways to Make Your Age an Afterthought | Timeless Career Moves
by Dawn Lennon - Nov, 2010
There are a million ways to be self-defeating. Fretting about the impact of our age on our career is a popular one. I hear it all the time: -“I’m right out of college and stuck in an entry level job because I’m the only one who can show my older coworkers how to do stuff on their computers.” - “Because I’ve worked here my whole career, everyone thinks my ideas aren’t cutting edge enough.” -“No one takes my ideas seriou...
How to Fire a Client or Partner
by Alexandra Levit - Nov, 2010
As a business and workplace author and speaker, I’m always getting asked about how to cope with getting fired, or how to fire a wayward employee. But no one ever talks about the best way to cut ties with an individual you’re working with as a client or a partner. In my native world of public relations, the idea of firing a client who is paying you is virtually unheard of. You simply put up with the abuse no matter how sev...

Just the other day, I had another person tell me all they want to do is work at Google. I get this one a lot, so I’ve started asking why. The response usually focuses on one of the following: • “Because it’s fun.” • “They really support you.” • “They give you room to be yourself.” I also usually hear: • “… and they have great perks.” It makes sense – Google offers great health care, child care, flex time, generous compen...

About a year ago I got tickets to a Paul McCartney concert for my husband’s birthday. It was amazing to see how, now well-past that mythical and unimaginable age 64, McCartney is ever-brilliant. One of my favorite stories about the Beatles goes back to the mid-1960’s when McCartney woke up in the middle of the night with a song idea. He liked it so much that he immediately played it through on the piano to ensure that h...
