Awaken the Hero and Leader In You!
by Dorothy Montgomery - Aug, 2014
As a society we are always looking for someone as a hero to guide us and lead us. As social beings we need and seek leadership. We cannot live without leaders. We are a hierarchical society and like a child we look to others like a parent for protection. We look to them to point the way, to give us direction and something to belong to. We admire our hero’s great confidence, fortitude and their character to do the right thin...
Network to Keep Your Work!
by Joan Runnheim Olson - Aug, 2014
Increase your visibility up, down, and across your current organization. Networking can help you…. 1. Be seen as an integral part of the company. 2. Become known as a subject matter expert. 3. Expand your network. 4. Keep your network alive. While some may reserve networking for times when they’re in a job search, others are continually working to build and maintain their n...
Network Your Way to Job Interviews and Offers
by Georgia Adamson - Aug, 2014
To some job seekers, “networking” is almost a dirty word–something they want to avoid like the plague. This isn’t a new thought; we’ve been around this track a few times before. However, in the unpredictable times we live in now, seemingly old methods can become new again, at least in terms of their importance to a successful job search. Networking: Not Just a Numbers Game I’ve seen various statistics and pieces of advic...
When Your Career Is in a Tailspin, Remember That Nothing Is in Stone
by Mindy Thomas - Aug, 2014
I get knots in my stomach when I hear about how twisted this job market is becoming. Frankly, the stories are never ending. From nurses at Penn who are completely skilled in their profession but have new educational mandates to complete by a certain date (or else!), to recent college graduates who are overwrought with confusion about what to do next, to baby boomers who are pressured to take severance packages before the ax hi...
How others can learn from Gen Y’s work/life balancing act
by Corinna Klawon - Aug, 2014
I stumbled upon an article that described what Millennials value the most when looking for a job, and an overwhelming majority prefers a job that allows them to have flexible hours and remote work locations for a healthier life/work balance. You ask why do we pursue that? – simply because we strive for self-contentment. For a long time, established magazines referred to us as the “Me, me, me” generation, which created this...
Stop the Busy-ness! Redefine Success on Your Terms
by Caroline Dowd-Higgins - Aug, 2014
We all love to talk about how busy we are. It means we’re needed. It means we have places to go and people to see, and it also means we may well be running ourselves into the ground. Blogger Guy Kawasaki went so far as to implore readers to ‘stop the glorification of busy’, and he’s so right. We wear our busy-ness like a badge of honor, and yet where does busy get us? Overscheduled, anxiety-ridden, tired and even sick. H...
What Are Titles Good For?
by Sherri Edwards - Aug, 2014
One of my challenges when working with someone in transition is to encourage them to move away from “titles” as a focus and help them to see the bigger picture. Titles don’t immediately translate to skills or value. They often are labels that far too many people take for granted as a reason to believe someone has done something reflected by their title, when under closer scrutiny, it is learned they have not.

Branding for the Not-So-Average Person
by Debra Wheatman - Aug, 2014
Recently a client asked me, “Why do I need a brand? I am just an average person. It’s not like I am an executive, celebrity, or an entrepreneur.” My answer was, “That is exactly why you need to think about your personal brand.” Do you want to be perceived as average? No; you want to be perceived as exceptional at what you do. Everyone is unique. You need a brand strategy. Where do you begin? How does the not-so-average...
Don’t Get an Associate from the School of Assumptions: How to Conduct Career Research
by Cathy Francois - Aug, 2014
This post is inspired by a recent conversation with a friend of mine, who, it turns out, was making career decisions based upon assumptions, not facts. This friend was interested in pursuing a career in a highly specialized healthcare field, and picked her current major believing the coursework would satisfy the necessary prerequisites for this career. Being an experienced career coach, I knew this was not the case. However, r...
Dressing Well for Work on a Budget
by Shun McGhee - Aug, 2014
I am the youngest of five children and grew up in what would be considered a lower-middle class family. While performing research for this blog, I found there is a large gap between lower middle class and upper middle class families. Rather than demonstrating the disparity with numbers, I thought it would be beneficial to describe using popular television shows. “The Cosby Show,” a house headed by a medical doctor and the othe...
