Do You Hate Your First Job (or Are You Confusing it with Your Boyfriend)?

Do You Hate Your First Job (or Are You Confusing it with Your Boyfriend)?

Considering the pressure put on students to obtain the perfect job after college, it’s surprising that the majority of them leave their work within the first two years. Today’s Generation Y professionals are not constrained by the job loyalty that their predecessors felt. Perhaps that’s why a recent Guardian Life survey revealed that young grads…

Fair Compensation Depends on Your Attitude

Last week I presented to a group of executive women and relayed a story about compensation. As a senior banker, I met with my manager to discuss year-end bonuses for the junior officers.

Steve Jobs’s Style

Steve Jobs’s Style

I’m half way through Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson. My take away at this point is that despite being considered arrogant, rude, disrespectful and at times smelly… Jobs’ manic belief in his product overrode his negative attributes and inspired a severely beaten up workforce. How does that happen? When you’re repeatedly told that everything you…

Yes, You do Have Connections

Last week I wrote a post entitled: Have Connections? Use Them! One of my readers wrote in “Yeah, well, that doesn’t apply to me; I don’t know anyone.” I told her it doesn’t matter whether she’s 22 and just out of college, or 32 and changing careers. She has connections. The same goes for you.…

Have Connections? Use Them!

The woman I interviewed had a gap in her resume. I couldn’t figure out what she did during that period. “So how about this time frame?” I asked. “Well…” she began, hesitatingly, “I did have a job at a pharmaceutical lab.” Really? Why isn’t it on your resume? Oh, I hate to talk about it.…

In a recent YEC/Buzz Marketing study of young professionals, 79% of respondents were interested in entrepreneurship. Anyone, Generation Y or not, who read about Facebook’s suggested IPO market capitalization of up to $100 billion, garnering $28 billion of value for founder Mark Zuckerberg alone, could understandably become giddy at the thought of starting their own…

Love Your Job? Get Ready to Leave

I loved my job and had no thoughts of leaving. But a funny thing happened when I went on maternity leave; half my 30-person work group left for a competitor. The news came as a shock to me, even in my rather emotionally removed state. I hadn’t seen the change coming and felt a mixture…

Business Meeting Conduct for the New Professional

If you’ve been to business meetings, you know they can be dry, lengthy and confusing, but you’re probably still glad you were invited. Attending a meeting is a reward, or at least an acknowledgement that you’re not a rank amateur anymore. So what do you do when you get there? Make sure you say something.…
