What Does Labor Day Mean to You?
by Carole Kanchier - Aug, 2014
What do enjoy doing on Labor Day? What does Labor Day mean to you? Labor Day is so much a part of our culture that we rarely pause to consider its purpose and meaning.

Labor Day began in Canada in 1872, when the Toronto Trades Assembly organised the first significant workers' dem...
How My “Potential” Landed Me a Job
by Corinna Klawon - Aug, 2014
A few years ago I found myself bidding on a job that I thought was quite far out of reach. I was going for a Marketing Communications job that required strong verbal and written communication skills as well as the ability to be detail-oriented, read proofs and overall have a good sense of English grammar. On the other side, there was me…just finishing up my BS in Marketing and Management: young, inexperienced, and above all a...

by Jessica Stasiw - Aug, 2014
The day starts when you step foot into your office building, and it ends when you put your computer to sleep around the 5 o’clock hour. For some, the eight hour work day isn’t enough, and for others it’s way too much. So, here’s the question you need to ask yourself…do you micromanage your time to stay busy, or do strategically play out your tasks and projects to be more productive? There’s a subtle difference here. Being a...

by Katie Chamberlain Kritikos - Aug, 2014
Young and Idealistic: All I Really Want to Do Is Drink Beer At my first yoga class in my high school library in 2002, I discovered yoga as a way to both exercise and relax.

Confidence on Tap – Part I
by Caroline Dowd-Higgins - Aug, 2014
As a career consultant, I’ve coached many clients who’ve suffered from a debilitating lack of confidence, and my best advice – born from experience – is to take action. Moving through my own career transition from opera singer to university director, and, additionally, to author, speaker and coach, has tested my confidence mettle, to say the least, over the years. I went from high confidence – singing on stages all over...

The Optimist’s Creed

by Georgia Adamson - Aug, 2014
If you think you aren’t a creative employee, you might want to think again. And if you aren’t being creative in some way, can you change that? The tendency is to think of creative employees in terms of fields such as graphic arts, marketing communications, and such–in other words, either visual or written creativity that’s an essential aspect of the individual’s job.

Why Not to Force Yourself to Become a Morning Person
by Adrienne Erin - Aug, 2014
Some find happiness in the early morning hours when all is quiet and still; and then, of course, there’s you. Whether you cringe at the sound of your alarm clock or block out the sun’s first rays by placing a pillow directly over your head, one thing’s for certain: you are not a morning person.
