Behavioral Interviews: What Are They & How Do You Handle Them?
by Georgia Adamson - Sep, 2014
The term “behavioral interview” isn’t new. It’s been around since at least the 1990s, I believe. However, you might still not have heard it or you might have encountered a behavioral interview without knowing that’s what it was going to be. You can prepare just as well for a behavioral interview as for a “normal” interview (whatever that is!). However, you do need to understand what they involve in order to do the most effe...
Will You Settle For What You Think You Deserve?
by Bob Roth - Sep, 2014
Many college students can recite a litany of reasons for why their performance is relatively average when it comes to college and career endeavors. They talk about their lack of resources, their family history and the disadvantages they have faced. Because these students focus on personal problems, shortcomings and failures, they are trapped in the mind set of someone who is likely to underperform. For most students,...

Are Your Sundays Spent Dreading Mondays?
by Joan Runnheim Olson - Sep, 2014
Do you enjoy your work? Are your Sundays spent dreading Mondays OR do you look forward to getting up each week day? Since yesterday was Labor Day, I thought this topic would be fitting. On average we spend 40 to 46 years of our life working. With work consuming a large chunk of our day and our life, why not be doing something we enjoy? For many people, little thought was put into their career choice. Some may think that wor...

Communicate with Power: Master the Unconscious
by Dr. Maynard Brusman - Sep, 2014

While our conscious brains can handle some 40 bits of information per second, the unc...
Confidence Part II – Change Your Body, Change Your Mind
by Caroline Dowd-Higgins - Aug, 2014
You may recall the scenes in The Sound of Music where Julie Andrews, as Maria, is trying to summon her confidence as she prepares to interview for the governess post with the Von Trapp Family. I love Maria’s feisty, go-get-em attitude. She’s terrified, but she holds her fear at bay by dancing down the road taking big steps and making big, bold gestures – waving her guitar and satchel in the air as she sings “I have confiden...
The 411 on Informational Interviews
by Kristen Carter - Aug, 2014
One of the new networking strategies that you may have heard buzz about is informational interviews. This term was developed by Richard Nelson Bolles, author of What Color Is Your Parachute?, and its purpose is to gather information on a particular industry and/or specific company you may wish to work at one day. Think of it as an information gathering session, not an opportunity to ask for a job. This is an excellent strategy...
What Does Labor Day Mean to You?

Labor Day is often more associated with fairs and a long weekend, than its original meaning – affirmation of the dignity and worth of workers. Labor Day began in Canada in 1872, when the Toronto Trades Assembly organised the first significant workers' dem...
