    Moving Up the Ladder - The Gaming Industry: Sexism and Death Threats
by Brianna Wu and Tim Muma - Mar, 2015

In some scenarios, serious threats of bodily harm and even death have become regular occurrences for women who are speaking out and trying to counteract the inequalities.

    Community Concepts - Nonprofit HR
by Lisa Brown Morton and Tim Muma - Mar, 2015

Lisa Brown Morton, president and CEO of Nonprofit HR, tells Tim Muma about the variety of challenges that exist in relation to human resources and non-profits. Lisa also gives some insight into wh...

  Don't Say These 4 Things in a Performance Review
by Alison Green - Nov, 2015
If, like many managers, you’re gearing up for year-end performance reviews (and perhaps dreading them!), you’re probably thinking a lot about what to say. But what not to say is just as important. Here are four common traps to avoid. 1. Don’t say “I haven’t had much time to prepare for this.” Managers notoriously dread writing performance reviews and tend to put them off. But if you think about it, that sends a pretty terri...
  How Veterans Can Find Civilian Jobs
by Miriam Salpeter - Nov, 2015
Making a career change isn’t easy, and it’s especially challenging when you’re transitioning from a military to a civilian environment. You need to showcase why you are qualified for the targeted job, even if your past experiences do not identically match the employer’s requirements. Adding to the complexity, most employers are not familiar with military service, positions, jargon or acronyms, so it can be even more challengin...
  Over 50? How To Find Job Satisfaction
by Miriam Salpeter - Nov, 2015
Job satisfaction isn’t a typical state of mind for most U.S. workers, according to the The Conference Board’s 2015 Job Satisfaction survey. They found 48.3 percent of U.S. workers are satisfied with their jobs. While that is an increase of 0.6 percentage points from 2014, it still leaves the majority (51.7) of U.S. workers dissatisfied with their work. If you’re over 50 and seeking a more satisfying work experience, you’re...
  Are Recruiters and Hiring Managers Really Using Your Age Against You?
by Louise Garver - Nov, 2015
I’ve had many mature executive clients tell me they have experienced some form of age discrimination in their careers. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission stated that record levels of age-discrimination lawsuits have been filed in the last five years. One contributing factor: millennials are moving into junior executive or executive positions and some may not recognize an older worker’s value to an organization. The...
  Are You Properly Leveraging Your Retiring Boomers?
by Alexandra Levit - Nov, 2015
I've observed an interesting phenomenon. Condo sales in the town where my in laws live, West Palm Beach, were picking up. As someone who studies workforce trends, this is the opposite of what I expected to happen. The baby boomer generation, I thought, does not want to retire to Florida and play golf and mahjong all day. They want to stick around and keep contributing. It turns out I had only part of that right. Boomers wan...

by Georgia Adamson - Nov, 2015
Whether you’re in the 55+ job seeker category yet or not, the job search and career resources available for that group will undoubtedly become important to you at some point.

  How To COPE When Trying to Reach a Multigenerational Audience
by Lindsey Pollak - Nov, 2015
In a world where young people suffer from FOMO (Fear of Missing Out) on social media, somehow that doesn’t apply to in-person events. Event planners frequently tell me how hard it is to get millennials to show up for events like conferences or resume workshops. While I hear this complaint about Millennials, the truth is it’s a multigenerational audience issue: It’s amazing how many people now sign up for something but don’t...
  What Is a Millennial? Everything You’ve Always Wanted to Know But Were Afraid to Ask
by Lindsey Pollak - Oct, 2015
On Halloween, you get permission to be something that you’re not, surprising the world with a big reveal. I’ve found something similar in my work with millennials: Many people have specific, often negative stereotypes about this generation. They’re surprised when they find someone behind the “millennial mask” with traits they weren’t expecting: hardworking, humble, inquisitive, to name a few. When I talk to people about...

  Great Leaders Manage Perceptions
by Dr. Maynard Brusman - Sep, 2015
How Great Leaders Manage Perceptions “You can influence people’s perceptions of you by playing to their needs. Once you understand how to make other people feel comfortable with you, you’ve won their approval.” —Corporate marketing consultant Camille Lavington, You’ve Only Got Three Seconds (Main Street Books, 1998) Even at the highest levels of government and business, leaders struggle to communicate their intentions.
