Since she'd been referred by a good client, I rearranged my schedule to accommodate a phone meeting for what she described as a "pressing decision" about a potential business endeavor I had experience with. The day before our appointment, the call was confirmed and it was verified that she would call my office at the arranged time. When the time arrived and no call came, I was surprised. Fifteen minutes later, still no call...
It isn't the work... It's the place
by Kimberly Schneiderman - May, 2011
Have you ever started a new job that was supposed to be great only to discover that while the work was fine, the place was just awful? Perhaps the budget for marketing was nil. Maybe the boss gave no direction…or too much direction! Did they move from downtown to uptown within a couple months? Wouldn’t it have been nice to know some of these things before you accepted the job offer? Here are some questions you can ask, along...
The garden and the network
by Dawn Bugni - May, 2011
I worked in the yard this past weekend. Truth be told, a well-manicured lawn and perfect landscaping hasn’t been a priority for many years. Combine five dogs and two growing businesses (up until 2009) with country living and no homeowners association to tell me weed whack and it got a little shaggy around the edges. I’ve learned; if you don’t’ get in control early in spring; forget it. The weeds win. This year, I found a ne...
10 Dollars and A Laptop
by Steve Farber - May, 2011
Last weekend at the always inspiring SobCon event in Chicago, I had the opportunity to meet Greg Hartle, the itinerate business consultant and philosopher. He’s on a mission to visit 50 states, collect 501 stories, and demonstrate that it’s possible to make a living starting from scratch–even in this new, challenging (to say the least) economy. He started his journey with ten dollars, a laptop, and the clothes on his bac...

by Dawn Lennon - May, 2011
obs are precious these days. Most careers are made up of jobs we¡¯ve loved and others that felt like a long trek across the desert with an empty canteen. It¡¯s tempting to grouse when we see our jobs as: ¡öBoring and repetitive ¡öUncreative and confining ¡öUnchallenging and limiting If we¡¯re not complaining that the work isn¡¯t exciting enough, we¡¯re dissing on the boss who isn¡¯t doing something about it.

by Dawn Lennon - May, 2011
Companies are credentials. Who we work for says a lot about us. Just ask any resume screener or hiring manager. This reality adds to the job search and career building pressures that are already intense enough. No one ever said this career success thing was going to be easy. What’s in a name? Here’s how it happens: Organizations have their own identities. They are defined by the mission, decisions, and performance...

by Suzanne Bates - May, 2011
Perhaps recently you’ve been in a conversation with business friends when the topic of Twitter comes up. It usually goes something like this. “I don’t get this Twitter thing. What’s the point?” “Who has time?” “Tweet, twit, I don’t even know the terminology.” “You know it is interesting, I just don’t know what the business application would be.” “One of those passing fads.” Now comes news from Wall Street t...

Action Is Essential To Career Success
by Deborah Brown-Volkman - May, 2011
Are you working on your career goals regularly or just thinking about them? Are you moving forward a little bit every day or waiting for the right time to begin? Goals don’t get realized on their own. They get completed and achieved when you are working on them. Work on your goals and you will reach them. Work on something else and your goals will take a back seat. Nothing great happens in your career without your activ...
Align Your Career for the Best Culture Fit
by Debra Wheatman - May, 2011
As a job seeker, it is important to look not only at the role you will be playing, but where you will be playing it. You don’t want to land in the wrong sandbox. The importance of a good cultural fit and positive office environment should not be treated as the step child. Accepting a job within an organization that is not aligned with your style can turn into a nightmare. (Think Cinderella’s coach turning back into a pumpki...
