  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)....

Your emotional state will depend on your morning outlook. If you are a worrywart then I can almost guarantee you’ve been up half the night. Like most business entrepreneurs, you worry about the productivity of your business. Will we make budget? Are we deliveri...
  An active professional network is like insurance
by Sherri Edwards - Jul, 2015
In an ever-changing economic market, or riding the wave through industry changes, you just never know when you might need to rely on your professional network to help bail you out of a rough patch. Maintaining a professional network is like having car insurance – it’s a pretty big risk to drive without it. Your network is your safety net. And like insurance, it requires an investment that can’t lapse. Without it, the costs can...
  Executive Presence is Coming Full Circle
by Valerie Sokolosky - Jul, 2015
Can I make an observation? And I mean this with due respect. Your clothing does matter! Listen to the marketplace. You’ll find the term Executive Presence is coming full circle. It’s just flat important! Clients who dress for success get the higher marks. Don’t think for a minute that they don’t. Oh, I know what you’re saying – “Why should I be concerned with what I wear when I’m technically proficient?” Because it’s just...
