Job Hunting? Three ways Your Competition Is Killing Your Chances
by Laura Smith-Proulx - Mar, 2010
Recently, I talked with a jobseeker who had been laid off from a company in shutdown mode. A long-term employee, she had been promoted many times, with her recent job involving distributor relations. She was most interested in working for a university near her home. When I asked her what type of job she would pursue, she told me that she’d be applying to their posted career counseling position, since she did have HR experie...
Top Traits of an Entrepreneur - Learn from Successes AND Failures - 3 Helpful Tips
by Bernadette Boas - Mar, 2010
One key trait of an entrepreneur that I continually work to sharpen my skill at is learning from the successes, mistakes and failures that I have had in my business, and life (as so often personal events contribute to both). This week for example - Murphy, as in Murphy’s Law of ‘if anything will go wrong it will when you have a critical deadline or goal you are working on”...well I certainly had him chasing me. And a numbe...
Three Ways to Spring Clean Your Career
by Lindsey Pollak - Mar, 2010
I’m having trouble writing this blog post, because all I want to do is go outside and enjoy the warm spring air. Alas, I am inside at my computer, occasionally staring out my window at the bright blue sky. And, after I finish writing, there is more inside work to be done today. I’ve just received a delivery of three brown boxes filled with file folders, storage bins, crates and plastic hangers. I have a stack of garbage ba...
Managers Who Don’t Manage - Taking Issue
by Dawn Lennon - Mar, 2010
Fear of employees. Way too many managers have a case of it. From what I can see, it’s highly contagious. That’s the issue. Businesses hire managers to make sure the right work gets done in the right way. Managers don’t actually do the work (usually), their employees do. So, the manager’s job is to set direction and clear the way. Problem: Too many managers don’t manage. Guess they’re just too scared. It’s epidemic. T...
The WAR For Talent Is...OVER?
by Todd Rhoad - Mar, 2010
Many high achievers still fail to recognize the need for skills beyond their own technical ability. A hard charging attitude coupled with a graduate degree isn’t sufficient. While they see themselves as real talent, they fail to see that the needs of industry are continually evolving. The battle for technical skill alone is over. We’ve stepped off that field and have engaged a foe of the social nature. You’ve just spent tha...
No One Told Me...
by Dawn Bugni - Mar, 2010
No one told me... That was the response I heard when I asked a client about the monetary impact of changes she’d suggested and implemented. I pressed further. “Can you remember anything about how things changed after you introduced your idea?” Her response...a nervous giggle, then **crickets**. I’m not picking on her. It’s not the first time I’ve gotten that response. Pragmatically, we know no job comes with guarantees. ...

by Barbara Safani - Mar, 2010

Unfortunately, others are preying on uninformed and sometimes desperate job seekers to illegitimately turn a buck and ruin people’s credit or drain their bank accounts. Identity theft expert and Director of Operations at Kroll Fraud Solutions, Jeremy Miller, relates a typical...

Face To Face
by Suzanne Bates - Mar, 2010
The other night three of us from our firm were taking the high speed Acela train home from New York. We clambered aboard at Penn Station and grabbed one of those foursome setups where the seats face each other. I was okay with it as long as I didnft have to ride backward. With one empty seat left, we were relieved and delighted when our friend Marcia unexpectedly appeared, exclaiming well, my day just got a whole lot bette...
Stay the Buyer – The Secret to Recruiting Top Performers
by Lou Adler - Mar, 2010
Most recruiters think that recruiting means being able to sell or talk your candidate into the merits of your job. To me, this is a 10% solution at best. While it will work some of the time, it misses the forest for the trees. The best people – whether they’re active or passive and not desperate – will not be swayed by your cleverness. Instead, they will make a career-oriented decision focusing on short- and long-term ...
