10 Ways to Juice Up Your Job
by Alexandra Levit - Oct, 2014
When it comes to the topic of finding one’s passion, Curt Rosengren is the man with the plan. He’s been blogging on this issue longer than anyone else I know, and here’s what he had to say on Wild About Work: “Far too often when people’s careers start to get a little stale, they do one of two things. They either go into ‘grit your teeth and suck it up’ mode (after all, work IS a four-letter word, right?), or they do a swan di...
Getting Over Post-Project Depression
by Robin Fisher Roffer - Oct, 2014
Ever get that empty feeling when you’ve worked intensely on something big and then it ends? During the first quarter of this year I worked on three major projects that had me zigzagging the country through the dead of winter to New York, LA, Chicago, Detroit, Houston, Tampa and Atlanta. The pace was non-stop and the stakes were high. I worked closely with my clients every day to ensure that what I was delivering was on ta...
The Disorganized Boss!
by Dorothy Montgomery - Oct, 2014
As I write this blog I’m traveling down Interstate 80 through Nebraska with my husband. I’m sixteen hours away from the start of my work week in Denver with a laptop on my lap. My husband is driving and as we get closer to the Colorado state line, my anxiety is increasing thinking about all I have to do before I walk into the workplace tomorrow morning. Meetings start at 7:00 a.m., followed by presentations, budget reviews...

The Art of Failure and Why It's Good for You
by Caroline Dowd-Higgins - Oct, 2014
Years ago I was in an interview for a big freelance opportunity and my almost future boss asked me – “What was your biggest professional failure?” The question really freaked me out since I did not want to expose my vulnerable side or my true weaknesses. I was trying to land the job and show him why I would be a rock star hire. I fumbled through the rest of the interview and left feeling deflated and lacking confidence for job...
Don’t Demote Yourself in the Office
by Terri Tierney Clark - Oct, 2014
It was when I called my naval officer father by his first name that he told me I was “bordering on insubordination.” No joke. I wanted to laugh, but even at age 13, I wasn’t that stupid. With my upbringing as a Navy brat, not surprisingly, I entered the work force with as much fear of corporate brass as anyone. At my first job, the new trainees worked mostly with the recent MBA’s. They were pretty approachable, so all wa...
Maintaining Senior Relationships at Work
by Terri Tierney Clark - Oct, 2014
Through your early career, it will seem like everyone you work with will be senior to you. They will be. And damn it- sucking up to them is unfortunately part of your job description. It would be so nice to scrunch up in your office chair, just you and your half-caf double latte, hold the foam. But no… you have to impress your senior colleagues throughout each project. At least when the project is over, you can breathe a tin...

by Lindsey Pollak - Oct, 2014
You probably just think of yourself as you, not part of a massive demographic group. But seeing yourself as a member of a generation is valuable, because it can help explain why your motivations, preferences and work style may seem different from those of your colleagues. Below is a quick primer on each of the generations in today’s U.S. workforce. Every individual is unique and should be treated that way, but these generat...
Discomfort Means You’re On The Edge Of A Break-Through
by Stacey Lane - Oct, 2014
There’s so much that’s uncomfortable about this whole career thing. Facing rejection as you interview, embarrassing yourself when networking, coming across as a desperate job seeker, having to ask your network for help, being unclear about your career direction when you think everyone else is clear, or desiring a career reinvention but being unsure about even where to start. Yuck. Uncomfortable terrain. I don’t care if...
Don't Let Short Term Thinking Derail Your Career
by Jean Cummings - Oct, 2014
Is this you? Do you find that the pressures of day-to-day work and home responsibilities keep you from doing what you need to do to get a good job fast in the future? I think that would describe the vast majority of us. It's human nature to pay attention to what is front of us rather than what's down the road. It's also human to choose pleasures in the present (completing current projects) over pleasures down the road (gett...
