by Mark Gorkin - Feb, 2010
"How can the person displaced or downsized see both the danger and opportunity in career change or disruption? Can we learn, even, to both cry and laugh at this career crisis turning point?" To be able to see the comic in the crisis requires two achievements. First we must embrace Charlie Chaplin's penetrating insight: "A paradoxical thing is that in making comedy the tragic is precisely what arouses the funny...we have...
Six Strategies for Finding Work
by Mary Jeanne Vincent - Feb, 2010
Have you ever met a fisherman with just one lure in his tackle box? I haven’t. As a kid I remember my dad discussing the merits of various lures with his brother when fishing on Lake Huron. Their tackles boxes were always a mess of shiny objects and one never knew from one day to the next which would be selected for catching the Northern Pike and Walleye they sought. As a job seeker, you can’t afford to have only one too...

by Dawn Lennon - Feb, 2010
Oh, boy, it’s exciting to get a new job, especially with a new company. Everything looks so promising. We feel really good about ourselves–validated, reinforced, and successful. It’s amazing how our careers can start out in one place and morph to another.
