  Communication Tips–Before the Hire & On the Job
by Georgia Adamson - May, 2014
Communication. What a vague and potentially meaningless term! Note that this doesn’t mean it’s unimportant–far from it. Communication comes in two forms, broadly described as written and oral (spoken). For greater success in landing a new position and doing well afterward, you need to have strong skills in both areas. 6 Tips for Effective Communication Whether in a job search or after you’ve been hired, you need to ens...
 
  Part-Time or Full-Time Employment: What’s Best for You?
by Georgia Adamson - Apr, 2014
If you need full benefits and/or a substantial salary, the question of part-time or full-time might be easy for you to answer. However, in many cases, it’s not so straightforward. Part-Time vs Full-Time Trade-Offs Clearly, you stand to receive more income if you work a full-time position, and the employment package generally includes at least some benefits, such as vacation and health insurance. For those of you who ar...
 
  Two Ways to Do Your Resume: DIY & HAE
by Georgia Adamson - Apr, 2014
Boiled down to its simplest level, you have two ways to create or revamp your resume: Do It Yourself (DIY) or Hire An Expert (HAE). Since my profession is resume writing, you might guess I’m not going to tell you you should always do your own resume, but I will say that sometimes “it depends.” Having made my disclosure about possibly not being 100% impartial, I’ll still do my best to give an unbiased view of the two ways y...
 
  Toxic Work Environments
by Georgia Adamson - Apr, 2014
This isn’t the first time I’ve blogged about toxic work situations–including toxic bosses. However, it was prompted by a recent comment from a new client that was fairly disturbing. He indicated that even though he’d had a successful record over the past three years, he was very concerned about the situation in his company. Many people had quit, including his last two bosses, and a number of others had been fired. He...
 
  Job Interviews: When Silence is Golden
by Georgia Adamson - Apr, 2014
Have you ever put your foot in your mouth, figuratively speaking, and then wished you could take back what you said? That’s an uncomfortable experience in any situation, but it’s potentially disastrous in a job interview. Once the words are out of your mouth, you can’t un-say them. That’s why the title of this blog post is “Job Interviews: When Silence is Golden.” Now, don’t get me wrong: When you prepare for a job interv...
 
  Your Career Roadmap
by Georgia Adamson - Apr, 2014
In the days before GPS, you didn’t take a trip to unfamiliar territory without a roadmap. If you did, you were likely to get lost and waste a lot of time trying to find your way again! The same is true of your hopes for career success. Note that a roadmap can often include more than one route to a given destination. For example, you might want to stick to the freeways as much as possible to reach your destination quickly...
 
  Job Offers and Foot-Dragging Employers
by Georgia Adamson - Mar, 2014
Have you ever had the experience of interviewing (multiple times) for a position and feeling as if an offer was just around the corner…but it didn’t come and didn’t come and….? Then you know how frustrating and exasperating it can be. What you might not have considered was how seriously this situation can derail your job search and prevent you from reaching a successful conclusion. Job Offers Aren’t Inevitable Even...
 
  Performance Reviews: A Love-Hate Relationship?
by Georgia Adamson - Mar, 2014
Very few people, if any, would say they love performance reviews–either receiving or giving them. After all, they’re a pain to prepare for, regardless of whether you’re on the giving or the receiving end, right? For this post, I’m going to focus on receiving a performance review, including tips for making the experience as positive as possible and enhancing your prospects for long-term career success. 5 Reasons People...
 
  Job Performance: How Do You Measure Up?
by Georgia Adamson - Mar, 2014
It’s easy–sometimes all too easy–to get caught up in the day-to-day activities of your work-life and not take a good look at how you’re really doing overall. This approach bears an uncomfortably strong resemblance to a racehorse with blinkers on. If you’ve fallen into that trap, now is the time to free yourself from it. Job Performance and Blinkers Just to give a little background, blinkers have at least a couple of pu...
 
  Avoid LinkedIn Goofs
by Georgia Adamson - Feb, 2014
As you probably know, LinkedIn keeps changing–sometimes it seems as if that happens every time you turn around. However, that’s no excuse for letting yourself get so far behind the curve that your profile brands you as hopelessly out of touch. 10 Amateurish LinkedIn Blunders According to a Forbes.com article by personal branding guru William Arruda, there are “10 LinkedIn Blunders That Make You Look Like an Amateur.” T...
