The message to develop potential business relationships pours out of every career website, book and magazine. Professionals know to network, but many don’t make use of their networking opportunities.

The First Thing You Should Do After You Accept a Job

……………Congratulations, you got a job! Someone has finally recognized your talents after you’ve sucked up loads of time in interviews, not-getting-interviews, and not-getting-return-emails. You’re probably ready to absorb yourself in your new position, but make sure you take time to do one more thing; contact everyone who was helpful to you during your search. Middle…

Job Satisfaction for the Millennial Generation

……………………………The Millennial Generation has job-hopped more than past generations, which the media attributes to a variety of influences, but job dissatisfaction is at the core. Most of the factors influencing job satisfaction aren’t too surprising: working conditions, workload and stress, recognition and responsibility, promotion and financial rewards, co-worker respect and relationship with supervisors. More thought…

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.…

Racing woman

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…

How to Respond to an Unfair Boss

Yesterday I spoke to a group of students at George Washington University about professionalism. GWU’s Career Development office selected the topic because recently-employed alumni were having difficulties adjusting to their new environments. They weren’t having trouble coping with the work expected of them, but with the nuances of workplace behavior. After my talk, one of…

It’s Easy for Gen Y Professionals to Succeed

Surprising (I thought) results from a recent career survey revealed that 68% of professionals polled said millennial workers are less motivated to take on responsibility and produce quality work than others. Forty-six percent think millennials are less engaged at work than others. Interestingly, the Gen Y professionals themselves agree, with 54% believing their peers are…
