  Career Advancement - What Does It Take?
by Georgia Adamson - Jun, 2016
Thoughts of career advancement might have flickered in your brain at the start of the year (when you were considering possible new year’s resolutions), but life happens. Have you given any thought recently to where you stand in regard to your career advancement prospects? First let me back up a bit and ask, “What does career advancement mean to you?” If you haven’t figured that out yet, this would be a good time to think ab...
 
  Unrealistic Expectations - Lighthearted Look At A Serious Situation
by Georgia Adamson - Jun, 2016
If you encounter the specter of unrealistic expectations in your work environment–from your boss or others–you might wonder how it’s possible to take a lighthearted look at that potentially serious situation. However, I believe a little levity isn’t out of line and could help you navigate such a situation if (or when) you do encounter it. I’m happy to share a few that have occurred to me; feel free to add yours to the l...
 
  Hedge Your Bets For Career Success
by Georgia Adamson - Jun, 2016
“If you hedge your bets, you don’t risk everything on one opportunity, but try more than one thing” (www.usingenglish.com). That’s not a bad approach to adopt if you want to pursue long-term career success, as well as shorter-term job satisfaction. The future is necessarily at least somewhat uncertain, unpredictable. Your overall career success could hinge a lot on recognizing this fact and taking preemptive action to incre...
 
  Is Your Job Stress On The Rise? Can Burnout Be Far Behind?
by Georgia Adamson - Jun, 2016
Do your work-days seem increasingly stressful? Are you finding it harder to see a light at the end of the tunnel? Maybe you need to find a way to beat stress before it beats you–and turns into burnout! Job Stress: Why It Happens Of course, job stress doesn’t necessarily happen in a vacuum (that is, at work). Taking work home with you at night could be a contributing factor to stress in areas outside the work environme...
 
  Career Satisfaction & Lateral Moves
by Georgia Adamson - May, 2016
Many people change jobs to gain career advancement because they feel stuck where they are and see no likelihood of change in their current organization. Conventional wisdom suggests that moving “up the ladder” is the way to advance professionally, which might mean finding a new job in another company. However, a relatively new trend in the work world indicates that not everyone thinks this way or adopts the traditional care...
 
  Job Search: What's Your ROI Message?
by Georgia Adamson - May, 2016
No employer is going to hire you because you’re a good person–likable, presentable, etc. Not even if you really need a job, sad to say. You’ll have to do better than that if you want to land the new job you’re after. What you need to consider is why the prospective employer should care, why they would think you could be the answer they’re looking for. That’s it, pure and simple. Of course, it’s really not quite that simple....
 
  Is Fear The "Enemy" Of Your Career Success?
by Georgia Adamson - May, 2016
If you’re not progressing in your career the way you think you should or if you’re holding back from making a move that might give your career a boost, maybe fear is the culprit. Fear can wear many faces, and you might not recognize it as being the source of your problems. Fear of Change Probably one of the biggest fears is the fear of change. You can hesitate, even wait too long and lose out on a new employment opportun...
 
  Unethical Employers - Deceptive Practices
by Georgia Adamson - May, 2016
Ever had a company hire you for a job that sounded just right for you–and turned out to be all wrong? It’s possible you didn’t do enough due diligence ahead of time, but on many occasions the fact is that the company was simply unethical in its approach to hiring. Unfortunately, you didn’t find that out until you went to work there. Unethical Hiring Approaches & Deceptive Practices Some common elements seem to be part of...
 
  Cutting Corners is a Rotten Choice
by Georgia Adamson - May, 2016
Companies that are in a financial bind or aggressively determined to steamroller over their competition can view cutting corners as a viable option. By that, I mean that they take actions such as using inferior materials for their products or providing misleading information to convince potential customers to use their services rather than a competitors’. Why should you care? I can think of at least two reasons: 1.Your e...
 
  Resume & Job Interview Black Hole
by Georgia Adamson - May, 2016
Have you ever submitted your resume for an opening that matched your qualifications and never received an acknowledgment? Or have you interviewed with a company and never been informed as to the outcome (which obviously meant they hadn’t picked you!)? Companies too often show a lack of respect for candidates who respond to openings by submitting a resume and an equally dismal lack of courtesy toward applicants they actually...
