Jobs Jobs Jobs and more Jobs!

Where do I start to look for Jobs?? Seems a simple question, but quite frankly if you are in the jobs market, how can you be sure you are looking in the right places to find the right job?

 

There are literally thousands of jobs posted on websites everyday, the big newspapers have big dedicated advertising sections with pages upon pages of jobs on certain days of the week, the local papers have their own healthy jobs section every week. Yet there are people who can't find a…

How to toot your own horn without choking on it…

One common thread across all levels of clients has been their internal road blocks to recognizing their accomplishments.  They are so used to living and working day in day out that their record keeping of accomplishments fades into oblivion. Although, there are still the handful that have enough ego for the rest of us, those aren’t the people this blog is meant for – not to mention I am sure many of us wouldn’t mind if there were some choking happening there (wink wink).

Change Your Career Today

I went home this past weekend and I felt like Dr Phil for about the whole time with my brothers and sister.  Not about feelings and family issues, but about career management and decision making.  Not the position any of else wishes for however turned out to be a good way for us to bond.  With a large family, six siblings spread across 17 yrs there tend to be some lost communication and relationships differ.  That being said, this weekend in career counseling might be more difficult than…

‘Managing Forward’ Series Part I: Advice on Managing Young Professionals

I had a great student job when I was in college.  I had the pleasure of working in the SUNY Geneseo College Student Union and working for a great mentor, Chip Matthews, Union Director.  I often lean on the learnings and advice I received from Chip, and wanted to know how he was doing since I left (I am sure the place is falling down without me!).  I had the opportunity to sit down and discuss the topic of managing college students with Chip Matthews.  What…

Are you contemplating changing lanes? Is it time for a career change?

The last two years our economy has really given us all a good shake. It was a cold hard slap for many who believed they were secure in their careers but received the “golden boot” out the door instead. Others went to great lengths to remain under the radar for fear of being the next on the booting block, if Bob the company’s most committed employee got the pink slip everyone knows no one is safe!

One of the strangest but arguably potentially coolest side-effects of being the receiver…

'Tis The Season to be Thankful: Some Thoughts On Thanksgiving, Career Progression, and Recruiting

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of going to Valco Mall with my sweet daughter in Cupertino, CA. The wonder in her eyes, as she explored a new place, complete with Christmas decorations, and running from store to store, with a broad smile, energy, and enjoyment made me remember what it was like to be a child, and have the spirit of Christmas, of Thanksgiving every day - and while as an adult I have this now, it is amazing how a child can always be happy, and how it doesn't take much to find the…

The Economic Mt. Everest: 3rd Quarter Analysis

Earlier this year, I analyzed what I called the Economic Mt Everest. I find it interesting to keep an eye out on very key economic indicators. The economy has certainly been a challenge for many, with frustrated job seekers seeking assistance. I know I have been one of those staffing professionals turned career counselor, and using my knowledge of social media techniques to help job seekers find their way. It has been a very interesting time. There are some interesting statistics that both…

Reaching your Recruiting Apex: What it will take to succeed in Life and Business

This was the sign that greeted me on July 1st, 2010, as I reached one the crown jewels of my vacation.

It was in Yosemite I had a chance to remember when as a young man, of 10, that visit that had changed my life. I had at that time had the privilege of a Memorial Day weekend trip with my family. On this day, I was on a journey to greet my wife…
