by Thomas J. Denham - Nov, 2011

As a career counselor, I know that a 25 year old client presents dissimilar issues than someone who may be close to retiring and asking themselves the question, “What’s next?” One of the pioneers in the field of career development,...
 
  We can do it! – Especially in a digital age
by Hallie Crawford - Nov, 2011
I recently read this article, Why Women Make Excellent Entrepreneurs in the Digital Age, and thought it was so good that I had to share it. It talks about women in today’s workforce.

  Soft Skills Learned in Career Training Programs
by Marcia Robinson - Oct, 2011
In addition to the practical knowledge that career training graduates develop, these five soft skills also make them attractive to employers. The Council of Economic Advisers is projecting faster-growing demand for workers with a two-year technical-college degree, or specific training, than for those with a full university degree. As Americans rethink the options for career training that will make them job ready for 21st c...

by Miriam Salpeter - Oct, 2011

Worker #1 asked, “Why don...
