Performance Reviews–A Valuable Job Search Tool
by Georgia Adamson - Sep, 2012
If you receive periodic performance reviews from your current employer–or have received them in the past from former employers–are you using them as a job search tool?

Of all the submissions we received, only one cand...

I was on a career panel this week with Tim Harris Executive VP of the Lakers. We were presenting to a bunch of students at UCLA who want to know what they are going to do with their Sociology degrees. Tim and I were both Sociology majors.

Getting Keen Career Advancements, Sideways
by Jason Stauffacher - Aug, 2012
I have a great friend, a friend of over 10 years, who just got hired in a major multinational corporation in St. Paul, Minnesota and Minneapolis, proper. It took a few years to get where he is. It’s a better business card by far and the perfect job title than he had even 4 years ago in Anoka. (I must change names to keep things matter of fact, but let’s call him Peter.)
