  Gallup Reports 70% US Workers Unengaged - Enter: Personal Branding
by Jean Cummings - Dec, 2013
Gallup's 2013 State of the American Workplace Report came out a few days ago and finds that between 1010 and 2012 only 30% of workers report being actively engaged at work, 50% are unengaged, and 20% are actively disengaged (working against the company's interest). The report estimates that this high number of unengaged workers costs the US up to $550B annually. These losses result from absenteeism, health and safety issues, q...
 
  Getting Along With Difficult People at Work
by Kevin Donlin - Dec, 2013
“Last week, my boss hired a “trainee” straight out of college to work in our department. She is young and it really showed in how she behaved. The problem is, this new “co-worker” of mine started acting like a prima donna. She has become manipulative and dominant. Some of my colleagues are complaining behind her back. It was becoming a nightmare for me just being near her. It has even made me think of quitting.” Dealing w...
 
  Heat Up Your Job Search This Summer
by Debra Wheatman - Dec, 2013
Three weeks ago I met with a new client, Rich. He expressed urgency because he has been out of work for eight months. We discussed the career history information necessary to create his resume. After following up with Rich, he said he would need a few more days. In five days, I called again and Rich replied that he would be visiting friends in Seattle for a several days and probably would not have a chance to work on this....
 
  How to Deal with an End-of-Year “Pink Slip”
by Ford R. Myers - Dec, 2013
The fourth quarter of the year is the most common time for employees to get laid off. One mistake many people make is that they leave themselves vulnerable by not being prepared for year-end changes in their work situation. If you (or anyone you know) were unfortunate enough to “get the pink slip” in December, the following six steps will help you re-gain control of your career and prepare for a successful transition: Per...
 
  Staying Viable After a “No”
by Harry Urschel - Dec, 2013
A while ago I wrote a piece titled… “No” may not be final! The point of the article was that it’s not unusual for a company to be interested in hiring a particular candidate even after they rejected them for a position they were initially pursuing. The article gave a number of reasons to be sure to let the employer know you would still be interested in pursuing other opportunities at the organization as something approp...
 
  The Power of a Referral
by Harry Urschel - Dec, 2013
A recent example reminded me of the amazing power of a referral in a job search. When it works as it should, nothing comes close to making for a better hiring experience for a job seeker! Hiring a new employee is one of the hardest things for an employer... A great hire can have an immeasurable positive impact on a team and on an organizations success. A poor hire can sour a team, set back progress, and have a treme...
 
  The Value of an Expert
by Debra Wheatman - Dec, 2013
Is it worth the investment to hire a genuine expert? In many cases, hiring an expert represents long-term value. How many DIY home projects have you seen gone awry at your home or for one of your friends? My favorite is a friend who saved $50 on the connection of a new refrigerator only to flood his entire downstairs, costing him a $1,000 insurance deductible and two weeks of downtime for the clean-up and new floor installat...
 
  What Do I Say About Being Terminated?
by Hallie Crawford - Dec, 2013
“Have you ever been terminated from your position?” your interviewer asks you. You may fear this question because you don’t want to have to say, “Yes.” However, you may be confusing the terms layoff, resignation, and termination. If you were laid off, you have not been terminated. Being laid off from work means the employer could not afford to continue paying your salary or did not have enough work for you to do. When a...
 
  What Do You Do When a Recruiter has Viewed Your LinkedIn Profile?
by Louise Garver - Dec, 2013
The etiquette required in connecting/contacting people on LinkedIn can make even senior executives anxious. The thing to recognize is that people who look at your profile are usually there for a reason. While some may be recruiters, others could be friends, or former co-workers trying to reconnect. So, what do you do when a recruiter has viewed your profile on LinkedIn? This question came up in a LinkedIn Group discussion...
