Building Relationships –Your Competitive Advantage!
by Dorothy Montgomery - Sep, 2014
Not marketing. Not strategy. Not technology. It is building relationships that remains the ultimate competitive advantage in business today both because building relationships is powerful and yet so hard to start and sustain.

They were holding an annual meeting in Madrid and the goal of the...
The Foundation of Any Job Search or Transition
by Bernie Frazier - Sep, 2014
When working with clients today or working with candidates in my past life, there’s always been one thing successful people do that unsuccessful ones typically don’t do – be clear about what they want. On the surface it seems like a simple thing, but if you stop and think about it, answering the question, “What do you want?” isn’t always so simple. Many of the people I’ve encountered have either chased the almighty doll...
A Professional Resume: What It Means and How to Create It
by Robin Schlinger - Sep, 2014
A professional looking and sounding resume is as important as a professional wardrobe when you are looking for a job. What makes a resume professional? First, the contact information is professional, with an email address that consists of your name, not some cute phrase or an address you share with your entire family (such as TheSmithFamily@yahoo.com).

Unfortunately, your demeanor can send a message of doubt and desperation that potential employers can sense, and quite frankly, avoid. When hit with a financial...
Taking the Fear Out of Public Speaking
by Corinna Klawon - Sep, 2014
As a college grad, I always feared taking the classes I would have to present at. I remember it like it was yesterday; the sweaty palms, the feeling of wanting to vomit, and the thoughts going through my head: “What if I forget and have a complete blackout...Oh dear, and what if I stumble over my own words...I mean, everybody will be staring.” It certainly wasn’t a healthy approach because little did I know that I would get in...

by Carole Kanchier - Sep, 2014
QUESTERS Take Charge of Your Career Are you a Quester? Would you like to become one? What are Questers, anyway? Questers have been around for centuries.

3 Steps to Becoming the Boss
by Lindsey Pollak - Sep, 2014
I like to define the word leader quite broadly, as someone who has influence over others, with or without formal authority. Even if you don’t yet have anyone reporting to you, or you work alone, or you’re a student, or you’re a stay-at-home parent — in my opinion you have every right to call yourself a leader. More than anything else, I believe leadership begins on the inside with the way you approach the world and your desire...

That problem in your background? It isn’t as bad as you think
by Louise Fletcher - Sep, 2014
I’m taking on online sketching class at the moment. I’ve always loved painting and drawing, and I’m finding this a particularly rewarding way to work.
