Job Search 2013: Not for the Faint of Heart
by Georgia Adamson - Dec, 2012
Based on what we have been seeing over the past year–and more–job search in 2013 will not be for the faint of heart. If you want or need to plan and conduct a job search next year, you will need to have several things, not the least of which is enough determination to overcome the numerous obstacles that could and possibly will pop up to block your path to a new job or career. To quote Mr. William Shakespeare: “Our doubt...
Job Search and Housecleaning: An Odd Couple?
by Georgia Adamson - Dec, 2012
I am not necessarily recommending that you start your job search planning by literally cleaning your house, but the combination of the two activities is not such an odd couple as you might think at first. Whether you are the kind of person who finds housecleaning (or cleaning in general) therapeutic–I am not!–you could find it useful to consider some of the key aspects of housecleaning and how those might translate to an eff...

Get Your Hands Dirty: Messy, Gross, Great-Paying Jobs
by Annie Favreau - Nov, 2012
There’s no getting around it: some jobs have a high “ick” factor. In these so-called dirty jobs, you’ve got to deal with stuff that would gross most people out—like disease, waste or even death. But without these positions, society would be a whole lot messier. As the saying goes, “It’s a dirty job, but someone’s gotta do it.” But here’s the not-so-dirty little secret: these career paths actually come with big benef...
10 Mistakes to Avoid in a Confidential Job Search
by Georgia Adamson - Nov, 2012
In an ideal world, every job seeker could be open about the job search with colleagues, friends, family, and even employers.
