    Employment Notebook - Success in the Corporate Environment
by Alexandra Levit and Cady Chesney - May, 2014
Being successful in a corporate environment can be a difficult task for those fresh out of college or new to the environment. The business tactics, office politics, and expectations of peers and managers are typically things a new employee has to figure out on his or her own – until now. Alexandra Levit, a business consultant and author of "They Don’t Teach Corporate in College," joins the show to share insightful tips and tri...
 
  10 Ways to Juice Up Your Job
by Alexandra Levit - Oct, 2014
When it comes to the topic of finding one’s passion, Curt Rosengren is the man with the plan. He’s been blogging on this issue longer than anyone else I know, and here’s what he had to say on Wild About Work: “Far too often when people’s careers start to get a little stale, they do one of two things. They either go into ‘grit your teeth and suck it up’ mode (after all, work IS a four-letter word, right?), or they do a swan di...
 
  How to Hire the Best Project Managers
by Alexandra Levit - Oct, 2014
When you bring in new project managers, do you do so strategically? Interviewing is subjective, of course, but for the essential job of Project Manager, you want your process to be as bulletproof as possible. After all, ending up with a bad Project Manager could cost you big time. Fortunately, PMO director Russell Harley is here to share his best practices for making the right hiring decisions upfront. Alexandra Levit: R...
 
  What to Do If Your New Job Isn’t What You Expected
by Alexandra Levit - Sep, 2014
According to a new survey by staffing firm Robert Half, 41 percent of workers said the role they accepted at a company was different than what had been outlined to them during the interview process. If you find yourself in this situation, what’s the most productive way forward? To gain insights into this unfortunately common scenario, I tapped Paul McDonald, senior executive director at Robert Half. Paul, from the comp...
 
  Why You Need to Close Your Open Offices Now
by Alexandra Levit - Jun, 2014
The open office trend has reached a fever pitch, with nearly 70 percent of American workers now residing in them. But is an open office really the best way to go? A few months back in the New Yorker, Maria Konnikova reported that open offices don’t actually do what they were designed to do, which is to facilitate communication and idea flow. She said: In 2011, the organizational psychologist Matthew Davis reviewed more...
 
  5 Things High Performers Do to Drive Better Result
by Alexandra Levit - May, 2014
Were you born to succeed? Not necessarily. As it turns out, even if you’re mid-career and feel you’ve never shined in school or work, you can completely transform your ability to contribute. I recently had the opportunity to meet David Sturt, author of the book Great Work: How to Make a Difference People Love. As he describes in his piece for Forbes, last year Sturt’s firm the O.C. Tanner Institute conducted a fascinating s...
 
  Sweeten the Bad Apple On Your Team
by Alexandra Levit - Apr, 2014
I’ve been getting a lot of reader emails about the pervasiveness of negativity in the workplace. I can understand where people are coming from. After all, the business world is still reeling from the effects of the recession, and many employees are overworked, frustrated and stressed out. Perhaps you have a mostly terrific team made up of individuals who are upbeat, motivated and dedicated to doing the best job possible. But t...
 
  10 Things About Work You Should Have Learned in Kindergarten
by Alexandra Levit - Apr, 2014
Some of you know that my firstborn is six years old and in kindergarten. He’s learning all the basics – how to add, how to read, how to tie his shoes. But he’s also mastering some great lessons that it would behoove all of us to remember as we slog through the work week and attempt to advance our careers. Here they are: in my son’s words: “Always try to do it yourself before you ask the teacher.” The kids in my son’s cl...
 
  How the Latitude Assessment Changed My Life – in Reverse
by Alexandra Levit - Mar, 2014
College career counselors often ask me to recommend assessments, which is kind of funny I never took any kind of test to inform the decision about a major or a career. I’d taken AP psychology in high school and did well in it, and so I picked that. I didn’t take a test when I graduated from Northwestern University either. I just knew that pursuing psychology would take at least four more years of school, and I wasn’t having...
 
  Millennials Aren’t Aimless Kids Anymore
by Alexandra Levit - Mar, 2014
Picturing millennials, we may think of late bloomers carrying huge debt and living in their parents’ basements. For many millennials, however, those days are far in the past. According to the results from a survey I conducted last year with Deloitte, 50 percent of currently employed millennials already meet our definition of a leader. Forty-four percent of them have only three to five years of experience, yet 41 percent hav...
 
  4 Ways You’re Derailing Your Career
by Alexandra Levit - Feb, 2014
The worst kinds of career gaffes are those you do unintentionally. It’s easy to see why reaming out the boss or taking an unscheduled vacation might get you into hot water, but more subtle self-destructive behaviors can be just as damaging. Here are a few to watch out for. 1. You’re all business at the office While it’s essential to be productive and possess a strong work ethic, you don’t want to be perceived as th...
