Are you struggling with your resume? Finding it hard to come up with creative ideas, even though that’s what you do for a living every day? Don’t worry – you’re far from alone in this. Most interior designers struggle to sell themselves effectively.

Personal Branding Aids in Landing a Dream Job
by Robin Ryan - Aug, 2014
Don’t you want a job you love? One for which you are rewarded with a higher salary and enhanced perks? Fantasy? Dreams for somebody else? No, this can be your new future, but you may need to manage your career in a whole new way. The name of the career game is now personal branding. My client Cathy was a Chief Financial Officer, longing to become her company’s CEO, and when Larry her boss announced his retirement this was h...

Network Your Way to Job Interviews and Offers
by Georgia Adamson - Aug, 2014
To some job seekers, “networking” is almost a dirty word–something they want to avoid like the plague. This isn’t a new thought; we’ve been around this track a few times before. However, in the unpredictable times we live in now, seemingly old methods can become new again, at least in terms of their importance to a successful job search. Networking: Not Just a Numbers Game I’ve seen various statistics and pieces of advic...
When Your Career Is in a Tailspin, Remember That Nothing Is in Stone
by Mindy Thomas - Aug, 2014
I get knots in my stomach when I hear about how twisted this job market is becoming. Frankly, the stories are never ending. From nurses at Penn who are completely skilled in their profession but have new educational mandates to complete by a certain date (or else!), to recent college graduates who are overwrought with confusion about what to do next, to baby boomers who are pressured to take severance packages before the ax hi...
Stop the Busy-ness! Redefine Success on Your Terms
by Caroline Dowd-Higgins - Aug, 2014
We all love to talk about how busy we are. It means we’re needed. It means we have places to go and people to see, and it also means we may well be running ourselves into the ground. Blogger Guy Kawasaki went so far as to implore readers to ‘stop the glorification of busy’, and he’s so right. We wear our busy-ness like a badge of honor, and yet where does busy get us? Overscheduled, anxiety-ridden, tired and even sick. H...
What Are Titles Good For?
by Sherri Edwards - Aug, 2014
One of my challenges when working with someone in transition is to encourage them to move away from “titles” as a focus and help them to see the bigger picture. Titles don’t immediately translate to skills or value. They often are labels that far too many people take for granted as a reason to believe someone has done something reflected by their title, when under closer scrutiny, it is learned they have not.

Branding for the Not-So-Average Person
by Debra Wheatman - Aug, 2014
Recently a client asked me, “Why do I need a brand? I am just an average person. It’s not like I am an executive, celebrity, or an entrepreneur.” My answer was, “That is exactly why you need to think about your personal brand.” Do you want to be perceived as average? No; you want to be perceived as exceptional at what you do. Everyone is unique. You need a brand strategy. Where do you begin? How does the not-so-average...
Don’t Get an Associate from the School of Assumptions: How to Conduct Career Research
by Cathy Francois - Aug, 2014
This post is inspired by a recent conversation with a friend of mine, who, it turns out, was making career decisions based upon assumptions, not facts. This friend was interested in pursuing a career in a highly specialized healthcare field, and picked her current major believing the coursework would satisfy the necessary prerequisites for this career. Being an experienced career coach, I knew this was not the case. However, r...
Dressing Well for Work on a Budget
by Shun McGhee - Aug, 2014
I am the youngest of five children and grew up in what would be considered a lower-middle class family. While performing research for this blog, I found there is a large gap between lower middle class and upper middle class families. Rather than demonstrating the disparity with numbers, I thought it would be beneficial to describe using popular television shows. “The Cosby Show,” a house headed by a medical doctor and the othe...
