  The “Secret Sauce” to Your Boss
by Bernie Frazier - Jul, 2015
Years ago, I had a boss who played a dual role for me. Fred was my boss and gave me all of the direction, support, challenge, opportunity and even correction required. But, he also served as a mentor in the sense that he would give me career advice that transcended my time working for him. “Hey, I hear the overtime pay around here sucks!” he would say when I would come in way before him and leave way after him. But,...
  The Job Search Money Trap
by Bernie Frazier - Jul, 2015
Earlier in my career, I took a job because it allowed me to start shifting my career in another direction. I wasn’t in love with it but knew it was a good move for me. About 1.5 years into the role, I took a chance and expressed an interest in doing something else within my company. While the results didn’t come immediately, one day my boss approached me about taking on a different type of assignment. I had minimal amounts...
  The LinkedIn Summary Dilemma: Use "I" or Not?
by Jean Cummings - Jul, 2015
LinkedIn profile writing is a challenge. And there are ways in which the LinkedIn profile summary section is still the Wild West. The LI summary is a blank page only restricted by the 2000 character limit. There are no requirements for anything in particular, such as listing your jobs and dates. So why is it important to worry about this? And what should you do? People know that LI is the premier business networking site. I...
  The One Thing Winners Do
by Bernie Frazier - Jul, 2015
A few days ago, I was talking with a friend about a variety of topics. One of the topics was careers. As the conversation evolved, I told her the thing I don’t see many people do that is the most effective thing a person can do for their career – play to their strengths. Instead, people spend time, money, and energy trying to transform the areas in which they are weakest (not challenged….weak!) to only end up moving the dia...
  The Power of Referrals
by Linda Dobogai - Jul, 2015
Studies consistently show that insider referrals far outpace online applications in helping candidates secure interviews and jobs. This outcome relates heavily to credibility. It is assumed that an inside referral is made by an employee who is willing to risk their reputation by recommending you. An online applicant with no connections to the business is a complete unknown. This, of course, is where the hard work associated...
  The Work Week: Is 32 the new 40?
by Mary V. Davids - Jul, 2015 released an article today on the benefits of a 32-hour work week in an interview with Ryan Carson, CEO of Treehouse. According to Carson who has implemented a shorter week within his company, “….the decrease in time spent in the office has actually led to an increase in levels of productivity:” Carson goes on to say “There’s no rule that you have to work 40 hours, you have to work more to be successful.” Gallu...
  Wasted Talent: Are You Working for the Right Company?
by Mindy Thomas - Jul, 2015
Wasted Talent. Sadly, I see it every day in the business I’m in. When I hear about how troubling the workplace has become, and specifically the toxic cultures and environments some people work in, I get knots in my stomach. As a resume writer and career counselor, I often find myself serving as a trusted confidante and advisor. Many times that translates to hearing the dirty secrets about the abhorrent lack of leadership, t...
  What Story Does YOUR Resume Tell and Will It Work?
by Jean Cummings - Jul, 2015
Read through your current resume with an objective eye - what story does it tell? Here are some of the stories I've seen in people's resumes: - I had a lot of authority in my jobs before 2005 but since then not so much - I stuck with one job for 10 years back in the '90s but have had really short 1-2 year stints since 2005 - I have a ton of technical skills and am a real hands-on techie (Problem is that resume is mea...
  When What You Want is a Raise
by Bernie Frazier - Jul, 2015
My, how the world has changed! Employees don’t make money like they used to. In the early years of my career, a basic raise was 6% – a basic every nine months! Roll the clock forward to today. A decent raise is 3% if you’re lucky. Many employees only see 1-3% raises, while some see no raise at all. In many instances, the raises are across the board no matter what the employee performances were. You work twice as hard...
  Who’s the Boss? YOU are!
by Bernie Frazier - Jul, 2015
Ah, the good old days! Back when you could join an organization and not have to worry about your career or its future path. When bosses proudly boasted, “Don’t worry. Leave the driving to us!” However, in the last 20 years, the workplace agreement between employer and employee has changed dramatically. Gone are the days when employers would guarantee you employment until you retire (assuming you were a good worker)....
