My mother loves to tell the story about the night of my senior prom. I was on the decorating committee, we had some no-shows, the theme was ridiculously complicated to bring alive through paper streamers and balloons, and we didn't finish until after 5 o'clock. As I was careening into the driveway it shouldn't have surprised me to peer in the rear view mirror and see my date, Jimmy, no more than a block behind me in his green...
Does Your Office Space Reflect Your Brand?
by Valerie Sokolosky - Nov, 2011
When you think about personal branding, most of the time, you consider things like, what does my personal appearance say about my professionalism? Or, what does my web site say about my innovation? Or what does my speech say about my work ethic? What gets forgotten, or not even considered, is what does my office say about my company? And I mean physical office. Not your wonderful co-workers and superiors, but rather the fou...

Your resume is not (only) about you!
by Miriam Salpeter - Nov, 2011

Take a few steps back… How much of the information you are including in your resume is relevant or interesting to your target audience — the employer you want to hire you now? How much jargon from your old job does your *nex...

The Five Career Stages
by Thomas J. Denham - Nov, 2011
I always ask my clients their age. I don’t mean to make them feel bad about how old they are. But someone that’s 55 is at a different stage in their career and life than someone that’s 25 or 45.

by Hallie Crawford - Nov, 2011
I recently read this article, Why Women Make Excellent Entrepreneurs in the Digital Age, and thought it was so good that I had to share it. It talks about women in today’s workforce. One statistic in this article that stuck out to me was in 2010, women became the workforce majority for the first time in the United States. I find this fascinating and encouraging.
