Focus: A powerful element in job search
by Dawn Bugni - May, 2012
(This is a long post, but hang with me …) It’s unusual for our land line to ring much anymore. It’s more unusual for us to answer it.

by Kimberly Schneiderman - Apr, 2012
When I was asked to prepare a list of top 5 tips for job seekers for the materials for ASIS’s May 18 Career Transition event, at first I couldn’t decide where to start. Should I list 5 resume tips? Cover letter tips? Ack! There are so many “basic” tips out there that limiting ideas to “top 5” is actually a daunting task. Of course, I was able to take a step back and asked myself what tips job seekers usually don’t hear. Fr...

What is the Key to Finding Joy in a Job You Hate?
by Cathy Eng - Apr, 2012
I was listening to a popular morning talk show on the radio the other day and something someone said struck me (and is still staying with me a week later). When the host asked a caller what he had planned for the day, the caller answered begrudgingly, “Man, they’ve got me drivin’ these trucks.” His answer was dripping with self-pity and resentment of his plight.
