Shift happens to all of us. It occurs with the change of the seasons, when children are born, when love enters our lives, when new friendships are forged...you know where I’m going. I recently read about a couple of shifts that can give all career professionals, in or likely to enter into a career transition, evidence of the possibilities and a clear approach to making them real, even while “shift happens”. Consider a stor...
What You Can Learn From Sales Superstars
by David Lee - Aug, 2009
I just read about a recent study on trust and selling, conducted by Huthwaite Inc, that has huge ramifications for managers and business leaders. Their research revealed that the most successful salespeople were the ones people experienced as most trustworthy. While not surprising, if you dig deeper into their findings and then ask: “What are the implications for a manager or business leader”...that’s when things get intere...
Getting Ahead in Your Career – Ten Rules of Success
by Marcia Robinson - Aug, 2009
Starting a new job can either be a totally harrowing experience or one of the most exciting times of our lives. Which of these situations we encounter depends to a large extent on how our new employer goes about the task of helping us to settle down, feel more at home and develop the confidence we need in order to quickly establish ourselves as valuable members of the organization. Once we’ve become a little comfortable wi...
Should You Be More Loyal?
by Alexandra Levit - Aug, 2009
Are you loyal to your employer? Maybe you should be. According to the Ipsos Loyalty Study, employees with the highest levels of loyalty to their job also characterized themselves as happiest. Unfortunately, the same study found that only about 30% of us feel loyal to our employers, or feel that our employers have earned our loyalty. So, what does it mean to be a loyal coworker? Here are five loyalty skills and ways to impr...
Powering Up Your Annual Performance Reviews
by Abby Locke - Aug, 2009
Most professionals I know dislike the process of annual performance reviews as much as they dislike job interviews. Why is this annual routine so greatly disliked and viewed the dreaded moment that you have to come face-to-face with the big boss? I am thinking that if you spent the entire year preparing for performance reviews and keeping track of your achievements and kudos, you would be in a better position to discuss...
Advice On Advice
by Christine Hassler - Aug, 2009
The last few weeks, I have offered observations and advice regarding the twenty-something experience which inspired even more advice, feedback and colorful commentary. One comment that I wanted to highlight was from mono who wrote: This article is bogus because I think nobody can give advice to others. I heard a commencement speech by Dolly Parton in the 2009 graduation ceremony at University of Tennessee. She said "I cannot g...
Are You Really Ready to Return to Work?
by Sherri Edwards - Aug, 2009
Every day I hear from job seekers that claim their job search is their highest priority..but, there is always a caveat. It is the "except for" that really defines the reality of the moment. I naturally take note of all of the reasons people offer for not immediately jumping on each and every lead they receive, even when they have declared their situation is dire, i.e., close to homelessness or bankruptcy. In order to be able r...

Whether you've just made the decision that it's time to switch jobs or you've been hard at work at your career transition, it always makes sense to examine your personal foundation and how it is being deteriorated by energy drains. Your personal foundation is the base upon which all changes you make in your life will sit. Energy drains are things in your life you're putting up with. The more energy drains you have, the weak...
Clean Up Your Online Footprint
by Louise Fletcher - Aug, 2009
In a recent post, Career Rocketeer discussed the importance of building a positive online footprint. Your online footprint is the digital imprint of your life. It’s the things you created deliberately, with readers in mind, like your LinkedIn profile or VisualCV. But it’s also the comments you made two years ago on a political blog. It’s the nasty review you once wrote on Amazon because you were feeling cranky. It’s the let...
