Workplace Friends and Foes—Your Forever Network
by Dawn Lennon - Apr, 2011
Ever been to a high school reunion? Some former classmates look the same. Some you only recognize if they have a name tag. It's not how people look that flips our memory switch. It's their names that get us to remember how each person has been preserved in our minds: -How they treated us (and we them) -How smart and/or accomplished they seemed to be -How they behaved alone, in groups, and with those they dated -If we...

by Debbie Brown - Apr, 2011
Performance reviews are supposed to be an objective evaluation of an employee's performance, based on measurable criteria. But how often does that happen? And how often does a job lend itself to actual objective metrics? Samual Culbert, a professor in the Anderson School of Management at UCLA, is the author of "Get Rid of the Performance Review! How Companies Can Stop Intimidating, Start Managing-and Focus on What Rea...

What if you think losing your job is the worst thing that can happen to you? But what if a career counselor shows you that a layoff due to a corporate takeover can lead to a better job? Here is my example of what career counseling can do to make a job search successful. Feeling panic over losing his job and anxious about the pressure of finding a new one quickly, George contacted me on the Career Counselors Consortium we...
Is It Too Soon to Think about Work/Life Balance?
by Lindsey Pollak - Apr, 2011
One of my biggest surprises when I first started speaking about career issues on college campuses was the number of students who asked me questions about work/life balance. College women (and more than a few men) as early as their freshman year were asking me about how to build a career that would enable them to have flexibility for child rearing, service projects, travel or other pursuits. When I started my own career in th...

20 Careers Where Women Outnumber Men
by Barbara Safani - Apr, 2011
I know that Tuesday was International Working Women’s Day, but since I think we should celebrate working women (and men!) everyday, I decided to hold off on this post so it could get some air time on one of the other 364 days of the year when women are making meaningful contributions to the world of work. According to a recent report by Forbes, there are 20 careers dominated by women. The top 5 are: 1. Registered Nurses...
Networking – What you might be missing
by Hallie Crawford - Apr, 2011
I met with a VP at a public relations agency, Mary, a few months ago. We talked about LinkedIn and how it is an important resource for job search, and for career management. I know many people are not on LinkedIn and many others feel they don’t need to be. Some professionals are at the top of their career path, or even the tails end of their career and don’t see the need for continued networking. I disagree with this perspecti...

by Alexandra Levit - Apr, 2011
There have been times in my life that I’ve been unhappy at my job, and I recall that Sunday evenings were always the worst. The precious weekend was over, and now I’d have an interminably long work week stretching ahead of me like miles of barren desert. I’d start getting anxious around dinnertime and would have trouble sleeping that night. Sound familiar? The good news is, if you find yourself dreading Sunday nights but...

Scanning USA Today the other day I spotted the article I was waiting for a savvy entertainment reporter to write. A lot of fans of American Idol have noted the chemistry between the three judges this year is jammin’. Most people wondered if the show would survive without Simon Cowell. Au contraire! Newcomers Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez and veteran Randy Jackson have made it hipper, more interesting and fun. I thought I wo...
