  How to Fight Boredom and Become More Motivated at Work
by Tai Goodwin - Jun, 2011
Once you’ve decided to make the transition from employee to entrepreneur, it can be extra challenging to stay engaged in your day job. Especially if the work you are doing is not challenging. When you’ve got exciting business ideas that you are itching to execute the doldrums of your 9-5 can feel like a straight jacket. Maintaining motivation on a daily basis in the face of boring assignments, office politics, and a chaotic en...
 
  How to Get a New Job Using Social Media
by Debra Wheatman - Jun, 2011
Did you know that 85% of available jobs are never advertised? Yes, it’s true. According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, only 15% of today’s career opportunities ever make it to the job boards. And – when they do get advertised, the competition is fierce. So why do so many job seekers spend so much time searching job boards for work? My guess is that it is the path of least resistance. It is easier to sit back and wai...
 
  Make Your Career More Social: Show Up and Engage
by Walter Akana - Jun, 2011
It often seems to me that many people in the career transition space continue to party like it’s 1999. That was the year when we were all concerned about defending life-as-we-knew-it from the looming Y2K Bug. Had disaster struck, it would have included a setback for job seekers who were just discovering the newly minted monster.com that promised to ease the process of applying for jobs. Fortunately, catastrophe was averted, an...
 
  Makeover Your Career By Unleashing Your Leadership Potential
by Tai Goodwin - Jun, 2011
There is a steady flow of information in the form of books, articles, white papers and training all in the context of, “what is leadership” or “how to develop a leader”? In this issue, I will avoid those two questions and write about two others that I believe might be on the minds of a lot you readers and they are: 1.Why does better leadership make a difference? and 2.How does better leadership achieve those differences?...
 
  You Have to Put Yourself Out There
by Norine Dagliano - Jun, 2011
Many years ago, when I was between my first and second marriage, I found a delightful little book entitled The Divorced Woman’s Guide to Meeting New Men. The basic premise of the book was that you need to “put yourself out there”. Go where single people go; talk about subjects single people talk about; dress and act like a person who is interested in a new relationship. Not only did the book contain all kinds of great “network...
 
  Key Actionable Items for Getting Back to Work: The Job Search Process
by Sherri Edwards - Jun, 2011
The job search process can be a mystery for people returning to work after a long absence from the work place or for those who have found themselves in the middle of a stalled search. The following is a quick outline of steps to help guide you if you are wondering where to begin or have gotten off track. 1. Determine which skills you prefer to use, are current, you are good at, and are marketable or competitive, based o...
 
  Discussing Salary: Timing is Everything
by Joan Runnheim Olson - Jun, 2011
During your job search, whenever possible, try to move the salary discussion further back in the interview process to help keep from being eliminated. This will help hiring managers to see the real value you bring before you talk money. One way to get around salary requirements in an online application is simply fill in "1," with the expectation that a hiring decision maker will still be interested in you based on experien...
 
  Following Up On Leads
by Sherri Edwards - Jun, 2011
How many times have you heard “information is power?” If you agree, then hopefully it will prompt you to take a new look at how you are pursuing your job search or your efforts to advance your career. A posted job announcement is only an inkling of the information a person needs to consider before initiating their pursuit of an employment opportunity. Although many people believe that gaining access to more job boards creat...
 
  Missed Opportunities
by Sherri Edwards - Jun, 2011
The thing about a missed opportunity is that you typically only figure out that it was missed in hindsight, and many times, there is no going back. The following are a few examples of what can happen from a job seeker’s perspective and from a sales perspective when assumptions are made and not investigated. I’ve co-mingled examples of both because the aspects of an employment opportunity are very much the same as with sales op...
 
  Riding the Wave: Problem Solving, Coping and Staying Resilient
by Sherri Edwards - Jun, 2011
There are many factors beyond a bad economy that are contributing to some people’s continued unemployment. The limited number of jobs may only be a fraction of what the problem is. Let me qualify this by stating I am not a therapist or a psychologist and don’t pretend to be. As I review my clients’ circumstances, I look at some basic and obvious issues, the same way employers will: are you able to go to work and do what you ar...
