To launch a new job, you need a good plan
by Beverly Jones - Mar, 2015
Are you looking forward to your first day in a different job? Or maybe you're preparing to welcome a new colleague? My worst first day was 30 years ago, but I still remember it vividly. I was a few years out of law school and shifting to a new firm in the nation's capital. The title on my business card read "partner," instead of "associate," in deference to the clients I was able to bring along with me. Well in advance...

You would never buy a car without first researching different models and prices, right? Nowadays it’s unlikely you’d even leave the house without first looking up reviews and directions to wherever you’re going. So why is it that so many of us go into negotiations without a roadmap or any preparation? Why, then, when it comes to important – possibly financially game changing — conversations about negotiating salary or raisi...
Proofreading Resumes on Paper
by Robin Schlinger - Mar, 2015
I have often ranted about the complete uselessness of electronic grammar checkers and mentioned the need for manual proofreading, rather than relying on electronic spellcheckers, but I am also against proofreading a resume on the computer instead of printing it out. Here are my top five reasons for advocating manual proofreading, with paper in your hand: No matter how carefully you look, onscreen you are going to miss the...
Many Interviews, Zero Offers – 5 Ways to Audit Your Interview Performance
by Lisa Rangel - Mar, 2015
You might have had a few interviews. But, no offers. That could mean the competition was significantly more qualified than you were. Or that you could improve how you interview. Doing an Executive Interview Audit However, if you’ve had many interviews and zero offers, then it makes common sense to do an audit of what has transpired during past interviews to see what can be modified to improve performance.

3 Small Steps to Better Integrate Millennials Into Your Workplace
by Lindsey Pollak - Mar, 2015
One of my major business goals for this year is to continually improve my keynote speeches. So far, this has involved signing up with a respected speaking coach, taking several high-level online classes and watching a ton of other speakers work their craft.

How to Complain at Work (and Actually Get What You Want)
by Melody Wilding - Mar, 2015
In the daily hustle of the workday, petty annoyances and inconveniences are par for the course. And often, when we counter those stressors, we handle them by complaining to anyone willing to listen. But complaining is complicated: Sure, it can be a way of expressing frustration and eliciting advice from others. On the flipside, it can be destructive to workplace morale and your reputation. When you complain on a regular bas...

Why Some Projects Will Always Fail
by Alexandra Levit - Mar, 2015
Accomplished project managers understand that it’s not always smart to play it safe. Most people with project management experience are familiar with Cobb’s Paradox. The term was coined when Canadian Martin Cobb was serving as secretary of the treasury board in the mid-90s and famously asked the question: “If we know why projects fail and we know how to prevent their failure, why do they still fail?” In his recent art...

by Ahmed Younies - Mar, 2015
In our last two posts, we examined key actions taken by the OFCCP in 2014 through the lens of President Obama’s ambitious agenda. While some OFCCP actions have reflected Mr. Obama’s priorities, others have actually resulted directly from Executive Orders.
