They are toxic and cancerous to the office atmosphere seemingly seeking to destroy any ounce of hope and suck out all of the joy that you may have!

Celebrating Your Career Independence





Like most of you, I spent this past weekend relaxing, catching up on some long-neglected chores and between periods of light showers and heavy rain, enjoying some traditional July 4th fare, hotdogs, apple pie and lemonade.





I did give some thought about the reason for our celebration. I think many of us,…

How can employers make themselves relevant to Gen Y?

Employers need to think big about how they are going to showcase their organisational culture and people to draw in, attract, and retain the next wave of high potential talent. While baby boomers still firmly rule the roost in the workplace, a new generation of graduates are emerging with a different set of influences and cultural reference points.



These graduates have grown up with technology around them, and thus have a different set of expectations from the world they interact… Continue

If you are not turning into an expert you’re in trouble. The generalist is dead.

For many years I wondered what the real difference was between being good and being great. How do you clearly define it? What is it that puts a person or an organization at a different level than the rest? And I did read Jim Collins’ book which addresses the subject but I got my simple answer in a Homer Simpson DUH! moment watching TV. (How else do you achieve a Homer Simpson DUH! moment?) Ironically it was a General Motors…

In Every Dream Job...A Heartache?

“Such a shame, it’s my absolute dream job but I just don’t feel that I can stay”



How often do recruiters hear that?



A candidate said that to me last week. In this case, her problem was her boss...try as she might she found it impossible to have a harmonious working relationship and efforts to work through this had failed. She wants the bits of the jobs that she enjoys – challenge, responsibility, flexibility – but in another environment.



She’s not the first,… Continue

Utilizing Networking in Your Career

By Pat Meehan

Building a network over a lifetime is the most accountable thing we can do. It is the epitome of being a proactive person. Day by day, we build on this chain of meaningful personal relationships to which we can exchange the gifts of our ideas and influence. We should value these relationships and put great trust in them as they continue to develop. Stephen Covey teaches that a relationship is like an “emotional bank account.” We must nurture this emotional bank…

What the Olympics can Teach Us About Career Management, Recruiting Success, And Life

You know I sit in awe of the sunset, and I sit in awe of the incredible ride of 2009, and now a promising year in 2010. All of us can have more hope now, as the sun sets on a very bad economic wave, that propelled everyone to near despair at times, and for others, reminded them of just how important life is. I sit at my computer tonight full of perspective, full of new knowledge, the capacity…

The Career of Champions: When Economic Circumstances Teach You How To Reinvent Yourself

A few months ago, I stood looking down on the San Francisco Bay, at Sunset looking west from the Oakland Hills-when I snapped this picture. It was at that time I told myself, I had what it takes to make a difference in my profession, I could put people back to work, and really help propel myself forward to a career track of greatness. I thought of the beautiful…

Make sure you have a product before jumping on the ‘Personal Brand’ band wagon

“You now have to decide what ‘image’ you want for your brand. Image means personality. Products, like people, have personalities, and they can make or break them in the market place.” – David Ogilvy



A lot has been said in the past few years about personal branding. A term introduced in the early 80´s by Al Ries and Jack Trout in their book: "Positioning: The Battle for your Mind". In chapter 23 Ries and Trout point that you can benefit by using positioning strategy to advance… Continue
