    Management Decisions - The Pension Pickle and Your 401K
by Alex Menassa and Tim Muma - Mar, 2016

  Job Hopping on Resume Still a Red Flag?
by Jean Cummings - May, 2016
Traditionally – pre-2008 meltdown but definitely before the dot-com boom – having too many jobs in short period of time on a candidate's resume was clearly an issue for hiring authorities. They assumed the person would be a short-term employee and reduce the ROI from recruiting, onboarding, and training them. Recruiters believed that short stints at several companies showed that the applicant wasn't committed, got easily bo...
 
  Personal Branding - An Exercise In Content Marketing
by Debra Wheatman - May, 2016
Having a personal brand is not optional. Perhaps you think you don’t have a personal brand, but you do. And if you don’t know what your brand is, your brand is neither strong nor polished. Having a strong personal brand is critical to managing your career, and you want to be sure that you are in control of what your brand is. If you are passive about your brand, others will craft it for you. In order to create and to build a s...
 
  Poor Communication Skills Are Killing Your Authority
by Lindsey Pollak - May, 2016
Remember the “house phone,” that apparatus we now call a “landline?” Every Gen Xer recalls the torment of the long cord that was just a little too short to get you away from your eavesdropping siblings, the annoying busy signal, and let’s be honest, the thrill of calling your crush and hanging up pre-caller ID. But as house phones became relics, so, too has the notion of practicing critical communication skills at home....
 
  Are You Living Your Plan A?
by Sherri Edwards - May, 2016
The other night, a client asked me if I was in my “Plan A” job. Loosely interpreted, his question meant, is my current work experience the vision of what I really want to do? My answer required thought and a much longer answer than “yes” or “no.” The first point I want to make is that I don’t have a “job.” I do “work.” My work can be very rewarding and satisfying. I am able to have relatively flexible hours, and I work out...
 
  Negotiating the Nonnegotiable: How To Understand Conflict and Resolve yours Successfully
by Kathy Caprino - May, 2016
Conflict is everywhere. We cannot live our lives, communicate powerfully, share our diverse opinions, support our divergent agendas, or honor our own deepest values without some degree or form of conflict emerging. The question is: How can we address our conflict with others in ways that are mutually beneficial, supportive and positive, rather than damaging and bridge-burning, leaving body parts in our wake? To answer that...
 
  How Well Does Your Company Communicate?
by Georgia Adamson - May, 2016
If you answered, “Not well” to this question, you’re probably in good company. It often seems that employers either don’t “get” how valuable clear communication with employees can be to overall employee satisfaction and company well-being or they have an agenda that precludes giving consideration to issues not clearly profit-oriented. Why Some Companies Don’t Communicate Well with Employees Actually, I suppose there coul...

For many people, job searching is less fun than going to the dentist! The path to success (a new job) is fraught with pitfalls, and the process ranks high on the Stress-Meter.

by Sherri Edwards - May, 2016

Regardless of what may be going on in the market, those are really the only elements you have any control over. Recognizing and acknowledging all of your current circumstances and how continued unemployment has already impacted or can impact your lifest...
 
  Is Your Head In The Sand?
by Jacqui Barrett-Poindexter - Apr, 2016
Most of us have been guilty of the “they’re so lucky” assertions. I hear it from careerists in regard to wishes for better opportunities and wistful envy of a colleague’s or friend’s advancements while they are left in what feels like the dust of opportunity and the waning light of their own careers. Is Your Head in the Sand While Your Career Walls Crumble? I’ve also witnessed a plethora of careerists, dutifully doing th...
