Old habits die hard and new habits can be difficult to sustain. Change is tough ... change requires willpower ... change requires determination, and ... change requires effort. Change is necessary if you're planning to adopt winning habits, particularly those that seem "foreign" to you or take you out of your "comfort zone." Winners, high achievers, super-star performers ALL have adopted winning habits -- habits that...

Getting Keen Career Advancements, Sideways
by Jason Stauffacher - Aug, 2012
I have a great friend, a friend of over 10 years, who just got hired in a major multinational corporation in St. Paul, Minnesota and Minneapolis, proper. It took a few years to get where he is. It’s a better business card by far and the perfect job title than he had even 4 years ago in Anoka. (I must change names to keep things matter of fact, but let’s call him Peter.) Peter was working the whole time, not looking the...
Joblessness and Long-Term Unemployment
by Georgia Adamson - Aug, 2012
The topic of joblessness and long-term unemployment is potentially huge, and I realize that one blog post will not begin to cover it all. However, a teleconference I participated in today gave me some food for thought that I believe could be useful, so I wanted to share it. What is the difference between joblessness and long-term unemployment? As you can probably figure out, these two concepts are potentially differe...
Salary and Benefits “Secrets” in the Interview-to-Offer Process
by Georgia Adamson - Aug, 2012
Salary questions are probably one of the biggest concerns I hear from clients and potential clients (with benefits being a related issue). Two sides of the coin could be involved: (1) the salary history and/or salary expectations of the job seeker; (2) what the company will probably pay and how to get an idea of what that amount (or range) might be. I always recommend that job seekers do their research to find out things like...

by Joshua Waldman - Aug, 2012
I’m often asked, “Well, if I need nouns, how do I know what nouns to use?” Here is a simple list of some great places to begin growing your Keyword list. Use Your Brain I’m not being cheeky by saying that. I think we often overlook our own common sense because the online tools are so convenient.

Your career path might be right under your nose!
by Hallie Crawford - Aug, 2012
I was thrilled that our Career Intensive with the Georgia Tech Alumni Association went so well last month. Working with one of the participants reminded me that sometimes the right idea for your next career path is right under your nose. Katie was going around and around in her head with different career ideas, from being a professional organizer, to working in a theater and even thinking of continuing to work in a library as...
College Students Are Missing Out on Career Planning
by Marcia Robinson - Aug, 2012
College students who don't take full advantage of their college career centers are missing out big time on the career planning advantage. In addition to finalizing course schedules, buying books and outfitting college dorms, college students should make working with the campus career center a priority this year.
