Career lessons from a royal wedding
by Miriam Salpeter - May, 2011
Did you get up to watch the royal wedding? I did! I’m a royal watcher from way back. Unlike the last royal weddings I arose early to view, this time, I am thinking of the career lessons from the story. Everyone seems to be making a major point of how Catherine and William hold the burden of the whole country — the future of England and the monarchy — on their shoulders. Can you imagine a bigger job? These are the...
Do You Really Want to Use THAT LinkedIn Photo?
by Laura Smith-Proulx - May, 2011
Some time ago, I ran across a LinkedIn picture of a job seeker who was holding a very specific political sign over her head. In bright letters. In shorts (and no, they did NOT become her). Curious about this phenomenon, I surveyed my fine resume-writing, coaching, and careers industry colleagues at Career Directors International on the subject of inappropriate LinkedIn photographs. As a result, I came away with a...
How to Explain Being Fired
by Debra Wheatman - May, 2011
Dear Deb, Q. I was fired from my last job because of a conflict I had with the manager. He did something that I felt was unethical. When I found out, I went over his head and told his superior. He was able to twist the situation and next thing you know, I got the boot. I have decided not to take the company to court; but I was wondering what your thoughts are on how to best explain this during an interview. J.D, Houston...
Are You Ready to “Work on Purpose”?
by Lindsey Pollak - Apr, 2011
In today’s changing economy and challenging job market, it can be difficult for a young professional to make choices about what type of career you’d really like to pursue. The options can seem nearly limitless, and it may feel impossible to truly consider all of the necessary factors involved in your decision-making. Furthermore, many Millennials feel compelled to find work that is personally fulfilling and beneficial to th...
Getting a Little Ahead
by Suzanne Bates - Apr, 2011
In college I once pulled three all-nighters. In a row. I wasn’t trying to ace the finals. I had to cram, just to pass. It wasn’t a report card I was proud to show my parents. And, just before the last final at 7 pm, I lay down (exhausted) to take an hour or two nap. I awoke in the middle of the night, in a panic, 7 hours late for the test. No way to reach the professor. I sweat it out until office hours. He had mercy a...
Have You Written Your Thank You Letter Yet?
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Apr, 2011
Now that we’ve officially settled into the digital age, many old-school job seeking practices have been thrown out the window. One formality that was popular years ago but has all but faded away is sending a thank you letter. What is a Thank You Letter? A thank you letter is a note or card sent to a hiring manager via snail mail. It’s usually sent after you’ve completed the interview process to let the manager know tha...
Rebranding Your Image on the Job
by Debra Wheatman - Apr, 2011
What does your brand say about you? Are you famous or infamous? Are you sought out for projects or are you the last one picked? Is your professional image not quite what you had hoped or expected at this stage of your career? Even if you don’t think your brand is good – take heart – it isn’t too late. You can always begin anew with the brand new “YOU.” Your income and opportunity for advancement may depend on it. In order...
Dick Nettell, Extreme Leader
by Steve Farber - Apr, 2011
Yesterday, I had a long talk with my old friend (and constant source of leadership inspiration), Dick Nettell. Dick had a long and storied career at Bank of America where his results and style were legendary. I mentioned in an earlier post that he’s in the process of writing a book, and he’s told me that I’ll be getting the rough draft, soon. But in the meantime… …Since I wrote about Dick as a semi-anonymous example in The Ra...
Volunteering: Gain work experience and exposure
by Hallie Crawford - Apr, 2011
Volunteering your time is a great way to get experience in a new career field you haven’t worked in before. What is even better, it’s a wonderful way to give back to your community. One of my group coaching clients sent me this update recently: This Friday is my first scheduled presentation for the North Georgia Goodwill and there are three others later in the month. Next Monday is my first formal speech with the Gwinnett H...
Full Engagement for Peak Performance
by Dr. Maynard Brusman - Apr, 2011
According to research, only 29 percent of employees are motivated and energized. What, then, is happening to the other two-thirds of the people working in organizations? This is an even worse scenario than the old joke in which a manager is asked how many people work in his company and he responds, “About half of them.” Are the people in your workplace happy and fully engaged? Two Sides of the Disengagement Coin Dise...
