Is Your Boss Wrong About You?
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...
Is Your Mind Getting Fat?
by Christine Hassler - Apr, 2011
Yesterday as I was packing my lunch in my new Easylunchbox that has built in dividers like a bento box, a metaphor came to mind about portion control (you know how I love metaphors!). If you were attempting to release weight, decreasing your portions of high-calorie food while increasing your consumption of nutritional veggies and fruits would be an effective strategy. Imagine the benefits of applying the same principle of po...
It’s Time to Make Comparison a Thing of the Past
by Christine Hassler - Apr, 2011
March is Women’s History Month, a time to celebrate the diverse and historic accomplishments of women. It is my busiest time of the year (only five days in my own bed this entire month!) as I’m blessed to travel around the country to speak on women’s issues and empowerment. My favorite part of speaking to women is feeling the phenomenal energy that is created when we come together. Anyone who has ever been in a room where w...
Overwhelmed by Opportunities?
by Wendy Enelow - Apr, 2011
According to CEO Update’s March 4th issue, new association job listings are up an eye-popping 45 percent in the first two months of 2011. At the same time, the article also says, some hiring managers are receiving fewer resumes. After the multi-year recession, this is fantastic news for job seekers. It’s certainly better than the alternative! However, as with most things, there is a downside. Lately, I’ve had more than one p...
Telephone etiquette for your job search
by Miriam Salpeter - Apr, 2011
Years ago, when I was working on Wall Street (and mobile phones were a lot less common), I called a candidate for a job. She answered her cell phone — from a loud, New York City street corner. You can imagine our conversation: Me: We’d like to see about scheduling an interview… Her: I’m sorry…I can’t really hear you so well. It’s really LOUD here. Let me try to get somewhere quieter. Me: Okay. (Waiting…thinking — why...

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...

Supervisors who manage teenagers in the workplace understand that to be successful, this group of workers requires special management support.

Managers with the right blend of supervisory skills to manage, train and support teenage workers, can realize the benefits of a motivated teenage workforce. Su...
The Citgo Sign
by Suzanne Bates - Apr, 2011
Years ago when I moved to Boston I lived in a lovely old apartment in the Back Bay overlooking the Charles River- a stunning part of the city - safe, walkable and within striking distance of chic boutiques (which at the time I couldn’t afford but window shopping was fun). Two drawbacks to living there - you pay nearly the equivalent of rent to lease a cramped alley parking spot often half a mile away, and there isn’t a gas s...

Jobseeker, Are You Crazy?
by Rosa Elizabeth Vargas - Apr, 2011
I have said it many times before and I will say it, here, again…you have to be willing to stand apart from the job search mob by daring to break the norm and differentiate yourself. Try the new, the fresh—take a chance. Will someone think a resume without an Objective is just crazy? Maybe. Will your friends advise you against a personal branding statement on your resume because that is just not done? Perhaps. If you call a com...
