The Compassionate Side of Corporate Entrepreneurship
by Dee McCrorey - Jul, 2010
Most of us have heard the old saying about giving someone a fish and you feed him for a day, but teaching a person how to fish and you have fed her for a lifetime. I'm reminded of this when I see so many unemployed people right here in my own Silicon Valley sandbox as the result of company downsizing, rightsizing, restructuring, et al. Given the Bay Area's penchant for start-ups, I'm surprised that so many professionals...
...and then “shut up.”
by Dawn Bugni - Jul, 2010
Back in the late 70s, early 80s I attended a Careertrack seminar. I don’t remember the name of the seminar. I don’t really remember the exact topic, but one story the presenter shared stuck with me all these years. The presenter, (we’ll call her Sue) traveled across the US doing seminars. Because of a hectic travel schedule, Sue spent a lot of time in airports peopl e watching. One day, she noticed a woman in an absolutely...
Lessons from the Coach Seats
by Suzanne Bates - Jul, 2010
You learn a lot from the savvy traveler who has to fly coach. Of course they all carry on; and they’ve learned to stand as close to the miserable airline representative collecting boarding passes as is socially acceptable. This way they are positioned to sail forth with alacrity onto the jetway when their row is called. This is critical because it guarantees a prized overhead luggage spot - you’re two steps ahead of the v...
Improve Job Search Success - Add a Resume Objective Statement!
by Marcia Robinson - Jul, 2010
I just read a post on a new career blog where the writer proclaimed that resume objective statements are unnecessary. I don't agree! Of course I don't support resume objective statements that say nothing, but I know for sure that a resume objective is a good way to get the reader's attention. Isn't that your goal? Imagine you are in a busy HR office sifting through stacks of resumes from potential candidates for a posit...
Twitter Users Are More Likely To Get Job Interviews
by Miriam Salpeter - Jul, 2010
Do you think of Twitter like this badge describes – as a pointless exercise? It may be time to rethink! Have you ever considered the skills you use to leverage Twitter well? It is not rocket science, but it does require key abilities, and not everyone has them. Sending tweets that inspire people to read, retweet and reply requires an ability to communicate in the short form. It turns out this may be much more valuable than...

As you can probably tell from reading my blog, I love lists. Top 10 These. Absolute 5 Thats. Well, I recently came across a fantastic list of 10 Everyday Super Foods, described by WebMD as “multitaskers,” such as nuts, blueberries and salmon, that are packed with multiple nutrients to help you stay healthy, promote wellness and weight control and taste good, too. This got me thinking: What are the “Everyday Super Foods” for...
Have You Compromised Your Values?
by Barbara Giamanco - Jul, 2010
At the core of what I believe about success in life is personal accountability and responsibility. This is certainly true in sales. If you are not hitting quota, have you taken the time to evaluate your own actions, attitudes and beliefs? Or, as so often happens, are you blaming the economy, the local market, your boss, the crappy CRM system that was installed, or maybe the prospective buyer who doesn’t call you back? It is ea...
Wanted: High Flying Career. Will Work Without a Net! Risking Failure for Success
by Dawn Lennon - Jul, 2010
High wire acts. Acrobats. Human cannonballs. Circus careers come with big performance expectations and high stakes. The consequences of failure can be dire. Successful circus performers are masters of precision, flexibility, teamwork, and consistency. They own every move they make for their own good and the safety of others. Flying through the air on a trapeze with no net below is the measure of a career that you own. Wh...

Here are 3 common pitfalls to avoid when setting up and using LinkedIn for a job search: 1 - Failing to use all the space provided.

Change Your Perspective: Look From Another Angle
by Julie Walraven - Jul, 2010
Back to the berry patch! You may have read my 4th of July reflections while raspberry picking. Well, the berries are not going away. I have been helping to pick my father-in-law’s (Bob) patch since July 3 and am barely keeping up with the crop. The patch is important to him and since at 88, he can’t get in there any more to pick, I am helping my husband try to keep up with the overwhelming and rapid growth of berries. I...
