Career Change: Parenthood - Anyone else inspired by the show?
by Patricia Erickson - Apr, 2010
Just recently I watched an episode of NBC's Parenthood that I thought was truly inspirational. I guess that personal dreams and career change touch everyone. Even writers in Hollywood. If you're an avid viewer of the series, you know that Amber is in her junior year of high school and is poised to either head off to college after she graduates from high school or maybe not - it depends on Amber. Sarah is Amber's mother and ...
Is It Your Boss That's Bad, or Are You Just Hard to Get Along With?
by Heather Mundell - Apr, 2010
In my former life, I was an HR director. HR folks can be a cautious, cynical bunch. Reason #1 - they are the legal front line when things go south with employees. Reason #2 - they've seen a lot of bizarre and bad behavior at work (and they're called in to help deal with it). I inadvertently had my HR hat on when I read What to Do If Your Boss Is the Problem on the Wall Street Journal online. It's a good article with...
Twitter Job-Search Success Story
by Kevin Donlin - Apr, 2010
If you’ve been on the Internet for longer than 30 minutes, you’ve likely heard of Twitter.com. It’s the “micro-blogging” web site that lets you share information with people in your network using short updates of 140 characters or less, called “tweets.” It’s free to join and to use. Can it help you find a job? Yes. Can it also be a huge waste of time in your job search? Yes. So, let’s look at a Twitter job-search s...
When Is An Offer Not An Offer?
by Judi Perkins - Apr, 2010
I received an email from a woman who was “elated about an offer for employment for a long awaited job opportunity.” She’d been looking for a while and hadn’t been having much luck. Despite her elation, she went with her instinct and turned down the offer. They’d been “sweating” her about coming in for training while she was working notice on her current job. She felt she needed to have fully resigned one job before she b...
Career Counsel: Job Opportunities In A Tough Market
by Ramon Greenwood - Apr, 2010
It is very difficult to find much good news in today's job market. However, there are signs of a sliver of silver lining in the dark clouds for ambitious young men and women. With companies downsizing to operate with fewer employees as a means for reducing operating costs, job opportunities are opening up for younger careerists, with lower salaries and less experience, to take on more responsibilities. Fair or not, thi...

How To Guarantee A Successful Career
by Tai Goodwin - Apr, 2010
The criteria for having a successful career will vary from person to person. For some career success is measured by income, for others it may be title or the overall impact made by their work. And some of us define career success as being able to do the work we love. Regardless of our personal interpretation of career success, there are two strategies that will help you get there: 1. Building a career centered on something ...
Interviewing the Interviewer!
by Harry Urschel - Apr, 2010
Most people, when interviewing for a new job, forget the process is supposed to be a 2-way street. It’s as important for you, as a candidate, to determine if the job, the company, the culture, and the work environment is right for you as it is for the company to determine if you’re right for them. You do yourself no favors by accepting an offer for a job that is not a good fit. It will make you miserable, your employer dis...
Negotiating is an Art
by Debra Wheatman - Apr, 2010
Negotiating is an art, no doubt. Done correctly it will lead to victory. Done poorly it could lead to failure. When it comes to negotiating salary and other benefits in the workplace, nothing makes people more uncomfortable. He who talks money first loses as they say. Why? Well, it’s because the minute you reference your previous salary, the other side has a distinct advantage. If you reference a desired salary, you may put...

The Groups feature of LinkedIn has continued to grow in popularity and utility. Groups are a powerful tool for expanding the depth and breadth of your LinkedIn network. Many Groups treat members similar to FIRST DEGREE connections allowing you to make direct contact with a Group member without a referral or Inmail. I am currently an active member in over 30 Groups (LinkedIn allows you to join up to a maximum of 50 Groups). ...
