Finding Balance - Turn Off Your Smart Phone
by Hallie Crawford - Apr, 2011
I read a great article in Newsweek recently about how information overload is paralyzing our ability to make good decisions. It reminded me of a great piece of advice I am always telling my clients about defining their career path. I wanted to share it with you because it's a critical step in identifying your ideal career and finding life balance. Finding your career direction is a process that takes time and effort and a lot...
Celebrating Kindness Day – How to help a job seeker
by Miriam Salpeter - Apr, 2011
Today, my colleague Phyllis Mufson invited me to participate in “Kindness Day.” Via her blog, she suggests perpetrating kindness via Twitter by doing and tweeting acts of kindness, using the hashtag (search tag) #Kindness. Writing about job search and interacting regularly with job seekers, I thought it made sense to also contribute a brief blog with tips about how to be kind to job seekers. It’s very easy to make half-hear...
A Strategy for Work/Life Balance
by Thomas J. Denham - Apr, 2011
We have more to do now in our personal and professional lives than ever before. We are ruled by haste and urgency; we race from one thing to the next. The result: we feel fragmented and often depressed. There is so much mental clutter in our minds that it is sometimes hard to even start. Achieving balance comes from regularly answering a series of questions. Here is my ten step plan: 1. Become Aware - The very first s...
SETTING BOUNDARIES: THE PSYCHOLOGICAL CONTRACT
by Wendy Adams - Apr, 2011
How successful do you want to be? If you prescribe as many do, to the Psychological Contract, you expect to at the very least feel as if you are supported in your success on the job. Whenever an employee and employer enter into a relationship, there are assumptions that they share the same or similar beliefs around the arrangement. Basic needs for success on the job must be met through the provision of resources. These re...

It was a dimly lit restaurant. Still she was dressed in pink, and while I admit it's hard to tell the gender babies, clothing color is a reliable clue. So, it surprised me when the waitress began playing with my granddaughter, asking "How old is he?" Twenty minutes later, that same waitress served our dinners into my daughter-in-law's lap, spilling the contents of her tray as she approached the table. We made light of the o...
Universally Transferrable Skills For Career Changers
by Cathy Eng - Mar, 2011
I rarely go a week without hearing from a client who is changing industries, fields, or general direction. The biggest problem that they’re running into is what they perceive to be a lack of transferrable skills. They are under the impression that there is a huge barrier that keeps field experts in and everyone else out, but there are several universal skills that - in well written resumes - successfully portray the candidate...

Killer Bosses are Worse than Killer Bees
by Dr. Maynard Brusman - Mar, 2011
Most of us can tell horror stories about the boss from hell. He or she might have been a micro-manager or so work-driven that employees didn’t have a life. The boss was unhappy and took out his/her frustration on employees. Bad bosses can be more destructive than those nasty “Killer Bees”. Killer Bosses Stanford University management professor Robert I. Sutton, PhD, author of the New York Times bestseller The No Asshole Rul...
Are You Innovative? Start by Upsetting the System!
by Valerie Sokolosky - Mar, 2011
“What we can do – what America does better than anyone – is spark the creativity and imagination of our people. We are the nation that put cars in driveways and computers in offices; the nation of Edison and the Wright brothers; of Google and Facebook. In America, innovation doesn’t just change our lives. It’s how we make a living.” ~ President Barack Obama, State of the Union Address 2011 Those are some big shoes to fil...
Don’t Be A Negative Nellie – It Doesn’t Help
by Hallie Crawford - Mar, 2011
We’ve all been through tough times; whether they’re related to our careers or even our personal lives. We commonly hear people giving advice with things like, “You just have to stay positive….” or “Keep a positive attitude…”. When all you really hear is “Blah blah blah”. Sometimes when we hear this advice, all we want to do is tell them to go pound sand. I understand these feelings because I’ve been there too. There are day...
