When students apply the wrong approaches, they are setting themselves up for failure. They frequently choose a direction or approach that is...

3 Ways New Grads Must Shine in a Job Interview
by Marcia Robinson - Jul, 2012
I continue to work with new grads who are struggling to land a job after graduation. One of the reasons new grads can't find jobs is because they are failing to shine in the job interview. Of course when I ask, many of these new grads tell me that the reason they can't find a job is the high unemployment rate. That's the easy answer. As one grad said to me recently; everybody can understand that reason. It usually surprises th...

WHICH HALF ARE YOU?
by Nan S. Russell - Jul, 2012
When more than half of Americans were identified as overweight, people took notice. Major news outlets began educating on how to stay out, or get out, of that statistic. I wish the same attention had been paid when a new survey was released confirming more than half of Americans are dissatisfied with their job.
