How Do You Know When It Is Time To Start Job Searching? Signs You Shouldn’t Ignore!
by Michelle Dumas - Sep, 2013
Let’s be honest: Job searching is rarely enjoyable. However, like paying taxes or seeing the dentist, we all have to do it from time to time. Sometimes job searching is necessary because of lay-offs (those who suffered as a result of “downsizing” during the most recent financial crisis know what that looks like). There are, however, other situations when job searching isn’t necessarily forced upon us, but the handwriting on...
Spot Phony Employment Ads Like a Pro
by Cathy Francois - Sep, 2013
As a former classified sales representative it is too easy for me to distinguish a legitimate employment ad from a phony one. It’s like trying to give me a Chucky Cheese game token and telling me it’s a dollar coin. However, I have found that for many others these differences that I see plainly might not be so obvious.

5 Ways To Keep Up In Today's Job Market
by Erika Andersen - Sep, 2013
Lately my job has been changing. For the past couple of decades, the business I started in 1990 was small enough that if I didn’t have a good month, the business didn’t have a good month. Now it’s grown beyond that: how much work I do for clients in a given period doesn’t have much to do with how well we’re doing overall. In fact, doing work for clients is no longer the single highest value thing I can do for the business’...

by Georgia Adamson - Sep, 2013
Whether it’s a case of being one of 100 people receiving the dreaded pink slip or just one poor soul who ran afoul of management and was shown the door, your job has gone and it’s not coming back. What do you do now? Of course, the exact circumstances can and probably do have some bearing on the actions you take.
