Whether they are ready or not, every student will be expected to have the maturity to act responsibly, do their best work and make good choices.

by Judi Perkins - Sep, 2010
Frank Lloyd Wright, world-famous architect, said, “The thing always happens that you really believe in; and the belief in a thing makes it.” In other words, we create our own reality by what we think. For a huge number of people, this is a tough concept to accept, because it means acknowledging responsibility for their circumstances.

It All Begins in Your Head-Part 2
by Judi Perkins - Sep, 2010
Last entry I showed you how and why your thoughts, verbalizations, and intents create what you experience. To quote Mark Twain: “If you think you can, you can. If you think you can’t, you’re right.” So if you don’t like what’s happening with your job search, look to how you’re thinking and what you’re saying about the process, because your ability to find the perfect job is determined by your attitude and beliefs....

Why finding a recruiter won't automatically end your job search
by Laura Smith-Proulx - Sep, 2010
I was recently asked by a prospective client if I "knew" any recruiters. Well, I do maintain strong relationships with recruiters in various fields, but there seemed to be a disconnect in the question. You see, finding a recruiter is only part of the effort you'll need to undertake in order to be successful. Recruiters find candidates, not jobs. Let me repeat that again - a recruiter will NOT set out to find you a job. T...
