  Are Business Cards Still a Relevant Networking Tool?
by Rowe Leathers - Jul, 2015
A recent conversation with a colleague left me wondering if using business cards for networking is becoming obsolete. With the growing use of social media, is the business card no longer effective? Worse, does it make one appear dated and – eek! – very “90s”? To some, the use of business cards is no longer relevant. However, it can’t be argued that within a business setting, they make exchanging contact information seamless...
  Don’t Quit Your Job!
by Bernie Frazier - Jul, 2015
Having worked for six different companies before branching out into my own business full-time, it seems crazy for me to tell others not to quit their job, but I’m doing it anyway. Why? Because most people quit too soon. No matter where you work, you will always encounter people, processes, systems, etc. that you will want to change. The problem is too many people allow this frustration to grow from a “mole hill to...
  How to Keep Your Job Search Confidential
by Heather Krasna - Jul, 2015
As a career coach, I get this question often: how do I look for a new job without my current boss finding out? Here are some tips: 1. Lock down your LinkedIn profile. If you are connected to any of your co-workers or your boss, and are also aggressively updating your LinkedIn profile, someone might notice. To ensure your updates aren’t being broadcast to the universe, fix your privacy settings. Click on the tiny icon of you...
  LinkedIn as a Career Motivator
by Rowe Leathers - Jul, 2015
There is no bigger career motivator than the fear that comes from seeing your friends and colleagues move forward in their career when you are feeling stagnant. A new title in a LinkedIn profile is evidence that colleagues in your circle are progressing forward in their careers, and that realization can leave you questioning your own career journey. Rather than letting fear make you second guess your career decisions, allow th...
  Survey Shows Project Managers Are Stretched to the Brink
by Alexandra Levit - Jul, 2015
New Workfront research shows project managers are so slammed that they are unable to focus on the most important aspects of their work. According to Workfront’s new Project Management Survey, conducted in late 2014 with 384 North American PMs, project managers are being inundated with too much work, lack of visibility into the work being done, and the use of disconnected tools to do the work. As a result, they are left with...
  The Job Search Money Trap
by Bernie Frazier - Jul, 2015
Earlier in my career, I took a job because it allowed me to start shifting my career in another direction. I wasn’t in love with it but knew it was a good move for me. About 1.5 years into the role, I took a chance and expressed an interest in doing something else within my company. While the results didn’t come immediately, one day my boss approached me about taking on a different type of assignment. I had minimal amounts...
  The LinkedIn Summary Dilemma: Use "I" or Not?
by Jean Cummings - Jul, 2015
LinkedIn profile writing is a challenge. And there are ways in which the LinkedIn profile summary section is still the Wild West. The LI summary is a blank page only restricted by the 2000 character limit. There are no requirements for anything in particular, such as listing your jobs and dates. So why is it important to worry about this? And what should you do? People know that LI is the premier business networking site. I...
  The Work Week: Is 32 the new 40?
by Mary V. Davids - Jul, 2015 released an article today on the benefits of a 32-hour work week in an interview with Ryan Carson, CEO of Treehouse. According to Carson who has implemented a shorter week within his company, “….the decrease in time spent in the office has actually led to an increase in levels of productivity:” Carson goes on to say “There’s no rule that you have to work 40 hours, you have to work more to be successful.” Gallu...
  Wasted Talent: Are You Working for the Right Company?
by Mindy Thomas - Jul, 2015
Wasted Talent. Sadly, I see it every day in the business I’m in. When I hear about how troubling the workplace has become, and specifically the toxic cultures and environments some people work in, I get knots in my stomach. As a resume writer and career counselor, I often find myself serving as a trusted confidante and advisor. Many times that translates to hearing the dirty secrets about the abhorrent lack of leadership, t...
  When What You Want is a Raise
by Bernie Frazier - Jul, 2015
My, how the world has changed! Employees don’t make money like they used to. In the early years of my career, a basic raise was 6% – a basic every nine months! Roll the clock forward to today. A decent raise is 3% if you’re lucky. Many employees only see 1-3% raises, while some see no raise at all. In many instances, the raises are across the board no matter what the employee performances were. You work twice as hard...
