Negotiating an Executive Level Salary
by Lisa Rangel - Apr, 2014
You got your foot in the door of that executive level position you were eyeing, you nailed the interview, and you’ve been told that you’re at the top of the list of qualifying candidates. Congrats! Then, the interviewer asks that dreaded question, “What kind of compensation are you looking for?” Most job hunters tend to freeze up here, but for execs it can be particularly frightening. Big positions tend to equal big mo...
Personal Brand Audit
by Stacey Lane - Apr, 2014
As a career coach, I get a ringside seat to great brands and so-so brands. But so do you - take your experience as a consumer and think about your favorite brands. What's their emotional appeal? Are they quirky? Are they innovative? Are they reliable? The brands that come to my mind: Southwest Airlines is Quirky, Apple is innovative and Maytag is reliable. Now think about your current or past co-workers. Who...

Career Resiliency: What Does It Take?
by Mindy Thomas - Apr, 2014
No doubt there are many tough career stories in the naked city. I interviewed a close family friend yesterday about what it took for him to stay in the game. I have to tell you that I was completely moved by his brutal honesty in discussing having been fired four times over the course of his career. Mind you, I am not talking about downsizing or the company going offshore. I am speaking about being let go for politically...
Make LinkedIn References Count
by Louise Garver - Apr, 2014
Sometime during the job search process, every executive is asked for references from a potential employer. Before 2004ish employers asked for references from the executive at the end of the interview and before extending an employment offer. Fast-forward 10 years—today references may be checked before an interview. LinkedIn Reference feature makes this easy for a recruiter or hiring manager to see what people are saying about...
Ask For What You Want: You’re Worth It!
by Caroline Dowd-Higgins - Apr, 2014
In my coaching practice, and in interviews I’ve conducted around the country, I see women, time and time again, waiting in the proverbial wings of their organizations – hoping and praying that they’ll be given a raise or promotion. As the saying goes, ‘hope is not a strategy’. If you’re at a point where you have a proven track record at work, you’re ready for that raise or new challenge, and you’re leaving it to your boss...
Eating Lunch at Your Desk Can Hurt Your Job Promotion Potential
by Lisa Rangel - Apr, 2014
How often do you find yourself eating lunch at your desk? If you decide to work through lunch you could be hurting your chances for growth opportunity. Not just because companies are now looking for balanced employees, but perhaps because you may be missing out on opportunities to network with other people. Oftentimes people assume that networking has to involve big formal (and let’s face it, sometimes stuffy) events. For...
How Having Life-Work Balance Can Help Advance Your Career
by Lisa Rangel - Apr, 2014
Many people assume that companies couldn’t care less about life-work balance. On the contrary, many companies are now trying to make sure their employees are healthy, happy, and balanced. As a result, they want to make sure that any new employees they take on (or anyone they promote) embody these same characteristics. The reality is only by being a balanced employee can you attract a truly balanced employer. (Note: We call it...
Job Interviews: When Silence is Golden
by Georgia Adamson - Apr, 2014
Have you ever put your foot in your mouth, figuratively speaking, and then wished you could take back what you said? That’s an uncomfortable experience in any situation, but it’s potentially disastrous in a job interview. Once the words are out of your mouth, you can’t un-say them. That’s why the title of this blog post is “Job Interviews: When Silence is Golden.” Now, don’t get me wrong: When you prepare for a job interv...
Sweeten the Bad Apple On Your Team
by Alexandra Levit - Apr, 2014
I’ve been getting a lot of reader emails about the pervasiveness of negativity in the workplace. I can understand where people are coming from. After all, the business world is still reeling from the effects of the recession, and many employees are overworked, frustrated and stressed out. Perhaps you have a mostly terrific team made up of individuals who are upbeat, motivated and dedicated to doing the best job possible. But t...
