Bumps In The Road Can Hurt Your Chances
by Bob Roth - Jul, 2012
The search for employment is not something that you do during the second semester of your senior year. Preparation for your senior year job search begins when you enter college and does not stop.

It feels great at the end of a workday to know you've made progress on a mounting to-do list, resolved a persistent problem, dealt with a difficult challenge, or accomplished an important objective. Yet, too often we get to the end of a day and haven't felt feelings of satisfaction, accomplishment, or progress at work, at least not as much as we'd like. Instead, frustration, bureaucracy, and unresponsiveness creep in to th...
LinkedIn Connections as a Career Management Tool
by Georgia Adamson - Jul, 2012
Unless you’re a LION (LinkedIn Open Networker) whose goal is to collect many thousands of connections in your network, you probably don’t spend a huge amount of time trying to increase your network. That’s either a good thing or a bad thing, depending on whom you ask. As a disclaimer, I should mention that I’m a conservative LinkedIn member.

Losing a Job is Never Easy: Just Ask Ann Curry
by Barbara Safani - Jul, 2012
It pained me to watch Ann Curry’s goodbye on The Today Show today. Job loss isn’t easy for anyone; having to make the formal announcement on national television was obviously very difficult for her. She showed all the classic emotions of job loss…shock, grief, fear, denial, and perhaps a tinge of anger. Obviously Ann is in a much better place than many of us. She is being reassigned, she will still command a nice salary, and...

Do You Deserve Respect?
by Bob Roth - Jun, 2012
Not everyone deserves to be respected. Since your words and actions tell others who you are and what you are, it is your words and actions by which you will be judged. Only those of you who are judged to be worthy of respect can receive it. If you want to know whether you are likely to be respected by others, ask yourself these questions: - Are you seen as being honest? - Do others trust you? - Do people follow your lead...
