Why Ageism Isn’t Your Real Problem
by Lisa Rangel - Mar, 2015
Ageism as a challenge gets thrown around a lot in the executive recruiting world. There is this false assumption that because you’re a certain age that you won’t get the job.

You Are What You Accomplish
by Bob Roth - Mar, 2015
It is not how hard we work at something; rather, it's all about the results we achieve. Employers hire people who can get things done well. Because activity without results amounts to little, we know that results are more important than activity alone. Example: Let's say that you volunteer to lead a fundraising drive for your favorite charity. You and your team work sixteen hours a day for twenty-one straight days, in an...
Your best work adventures may begin when you stop worrying about status

Why Quitting is So Hard – Especially If You’re a Winner
by Stacey Lane - Mar, 2015
It’s hard for me to quit something. I keep trying to make things work – jobs, relationships, a broken door handle, whatever. I stay focused on making things work way too long past the freshness expiration date. I guess this makes me a bad quitter. Despite me knowing this about myself, I find it hard to give up on something. “If I just try doing it this way, it might work…” Great if you’re doing a team building challenge wit...

by Robin Schlinger - Mar, 2015
An IT professional responded to one of my blog posts by stating that he contributes so much to his company that his experience bursts the bounds of a resume.
