Making The Most Out Of Job Rejection
by Christine Hassler - Jan, 2009
Dear Christine, I've been in the job application process for several months now without success. Most of the time, I don't hear back from potential employers unless I initiate a call. Usually if I get them on the phone, they say something like they have filled the position or are no longer hiring. What is the appropriate response to that? Also, is there any follow-up necessary after I receive a voicemail stating that I was ...
Networking, Today, Tomorrow, Always!
by Bernadette Boas - Jan, 2009
Prior to deciding on my next career adventure, I experienced what many have - but never imagined myself - experiencing. That was, the five minute ‘we are making some organization changes’ discussion from my manager. Even as he said that, I was imagining a different job, a new role, maybe a downsizing of my responsibility within the company. I never imagined after years of dedication, loyalty, and, if you allow me to boast, ...

by Lindsey Pollak - Jan, 2009
To go to grad school or not to go to grad school, that is the question for many graduating college students - especially during a recession. I wish I could give you the absolute right answer, but I can't. The decision is personal and different for everyone. What I can do is provide you with the right questions to ask to make the right move for you. First, here are what I consider to be the no-brainer decisions: No-...
OMG, I Lost My Job!

What I am thankful for...
by Beth Gilfeather - Jan, 2009
When looking to make a move, almost all candidates understandibly focus on salary and other "surface" elements of the job (responsibilities, hours, commute, title, rank, etc..). While these are all very important, what about the other things that really matter in a job? Go through our list of "things to be thankful for" at work. If you have these things, you're lucky and I would suggest you reconsider looking for a new job. Ho...
Adaptability: How to Survive in Today’s Business Climate
by John E. Long - Jan, 2009
There’s no getting around the news—foreclosures, bailouts and breathtaking stock market swings. It’s real. It’s upon us. It can be scary. Though we can’t control the economy, we can control our perception (and reaction) to it. Every crisis creates a positive by-product—opportunity. It’s more important than ever to think creatively and adapt “onthefly” to seize those opportunities. Companies that do so will thrive, even dur...
Top 10 Ways to Cope with Job Transition
by John E. Long - Jan, 2009
Job transitions can be stressful — whether they’re due to layoff, a new job or working extra hours because other workers were laid off. If you’re facing one, consider the following: 1. Take an honest look at yourself. What are your strengths, weaknesses, skills? How did those influence—positively or negatively—your transition? 2. Step up your self-care. Major changes are physically and emotionally taxing. You need self-c...
Catching People at Their Best
by Rebecca Ryan - Jan, 2009
I once got a lovely email from one of my staff members. Her son was sick, and she chose to work from home so that she could look after him. In her email, she thanked me for 'birthing' NGC and making it the kind of place where people can do their work from anywhere. Felt good. Really good. When I saw her that morning, I acknowledged receiving her note. She said, "You thank us all the time, and it occured to me that you prob...
Create A Business Plan to Ensure Success in a New Job
by Liz Handlin - Jan, 2009
A client of mine called yesterday to say that he is on the verge of getting an offer from a large bank. Before they will extend him an offer the recruiter has requested that he submit a business plan outlining his plans to achieve his goals. The job is a wealth management role which would require that my client bring about $10 million in investment dollars to the job within the first year. If you are not familiar with this typ...
Don’t Be a Conversation Killer
by Liz Handlin - Jan, 2009
The other night I met some friends for drinks after work. One of the friends-of-friends who showed up announced that she had been laid off from her job and was in the midst of a job search. We were all very supportive, of course, and my first impression of her was, “Wow, she is sharp and is sure to land a great job soon”. However, the more she talked the less impressed with her I became. She is certainly a bright young lady bu...
