How To Have Fun In The Office And Not Kill Anyone

August 14, 2013 By admin | 3 Comments

I read an article on LinkedIn a few days back which hit home a bit for me. It was about having fun at the office.

Job search and career sites are full of articles about how to answer those "tough" interview questions. Frequently, we spend many hours creating resumes and cover letters, searching through the job boards and postings on the internet, and networking -- all in order to get an interview.

July 27, 2013 By admin | Write Comment

Do you find yourself having cynical responses to the power of a positive attitude and glass half-full quotes?  Pie in the sky - "the longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life"1 - "just believe hard enough" …etc.  I know I have.  Maintaining an effective attitude is one of the hardest...more >>

Those of you following my Blog posts know that I left a full-time job to care for my mother, until her death from Alzheimer's disease in 2008, right as the job market took a downward turn.

Count Your (Job) Blessings

July 25, 2013 By admin | Write Comment

For those of us fortunate enough to have kept a job for the past few years, news that the unemployment rate has shifted up or down some fraction of a percentage point has become something similar to hearing another commercial on TV – we have begun to tune it out.  We are beginning to forget that...more >>

July 23, 2013 By admin | Write Comment

Many professional women take a career hiatus of anywhere from a couple of years to a decade in order to raise their children. This was fairly common among my mother’s generation. Most of these mothers returned to work when the children were more or less self-sufficient in order to finance the children’s education, save for...more >>

CEOs – You Need To Leverage Your Kids

July 23, 2013 By admin | Write Comment

I read an article not long ago about CEOs in general being "technologically challenged". I have found this to be very true. CEOs want to be seen as "leading edge". They see others who whip out their laptops, tablets, and smartphones while at the airport or in meetings. They immediately instruct their purchasing people to...more >>
