How I went from Cookies to Corporate
by Connie Pheiff - Jun, 2015
On June 30, 2006 at 4:02 pm I was told I would no longer be the CEO of Girl Scouts. I expected to be the leader of the number one leadership program for women well into my retirement years. Unfortunately that did not happen. I had no idea losing a position I was most passionate about would change my life forever. The following three months brought plenty of margaritas and depression. Although I was CEO of a national organi...

by Michelle Kerrigan - Jun, 2015
How to Choose the Right Path to Success Life is filled with change. It is also filled with choice. Success is largely based on the choices we make when facing change. Many of the changes we face are not welcome and quite challenging, such as getting laid off; going through a restructuring; and doing more with less at work. And, many of us believe that if we worry enough, we can control the outcome. Well, we can’t. No o...
Build a Strong Reputation – Communicate Minor Achievements
by Alexandra Levit - May, 2015
Build a strong reputation by making the most of minor achievements. In my seminars, I am fond of discussing the importance of perception. You could be the smartest, most talented individual your organization has ever hired, but if people don’t like you or value what you have to offer, you’re dead in the water. Fortunately, it is relatively easy to project a positive image. When you meet people in person, make sure you...
Don’t Be a Job Search “Idiot”!
by Georgia Adamson - May, 2015
If you’ve never made any dumb or slightly silly mistakes in a job search, congratulations! On the other hand, an occasional misstep is probably not the kiss of death unless it’s seriously stupid. Look at it this way, though: If you don’t put your best foot forward when you’re planning and conducting a job search, why should a potential employer assume that you won’t do something equally bad as an employee? To those employe...
The Non-Techno-Geek’s Ultimate Guide to Using #HashTags In Your Job Search
by Michelle Dumas - May, 2015
#HashTags? Seriously? Why should I care? I hear the objections starting to run through your head already. They ran through mine too. In fact, the truth is that despite the fact that I run an online business, until recently I had only the most rudimentary knowledge of what a hashtag was. In the expectation that I am not the most naive non-techno-geek out there, and many of my readers may feel the same way, here is how...

Your Resume and Your Portfolio
by Robin Schlinger - Apr, 2015
I have many clients in creative careers that demand online or print portfolios: writers, graphic artists, photographers and web designers, among others. When hiring managers or recruiters look at job applicants for communications or design positions, they expect to see samples of previous work at some point. Any creative person about to engage in a job search should make sure to accumulate physical or electronic samples of...
