In an article published in the Huffington Post, ”Women in Technology: Let’s Close the Gap,” author Peggy Johnson shares lessons she has lea...

by John E. Kobara - Sep, 2012
How will I know when I can take a risk? This may be the most popular question I get. Some hear about my career path and some are hovering around a decision and they wonder---How will I know when to jump? How will I know if it is worth it? How will I know if I should take the chance? We are confronted with these decisions everyday and I assert almost every moment. Managing risk, choosing options, deciding not to say somet...

Is it suspicious not to have an online profile?
by Miriam Salpeter - Sep, 2012

You’re okay with that, but what does it mean for your job search?

A powerful secret to career success
by Kim Meninger - Sep, 2012
After many years, I finally had an opportunity to read Carly Fiorina’s (former Chairman & CEO of Hewlett-Packard) book, Tough Choices. One of the things that really resonated with me was her approach to each new role, initiative, or challenge that she encountered. Before rolling up her sleeves and diving in, she took the time to ask lots of questions. She made an effort to understand as much as she could from as many people as...

by Nan S. Russell - Aug, 2012
Brian's work was exceptional. Still, as his boss, I rarely offered him additional responsibilities, never thought of promoting him, or selecting him for a critical project. Why? His whine factor got in the way. He was quick to complain to anyone who'd listen how much work was on his plate, or how hard or how late he worked. His whine factor was a protective shield that insured he didn't get more work to do. However, it also...

I have a great friend, a friend of over 10 years, who just got hired in a major multinational corporation in St. Paul, Minnesota and Minneapolis, proper. It took a few years to get where he is. It’s a better business card by far and the perfect job title than he had even 4 years ago in Anoka. (I must change names to keep things matter of fact, but let’s call him Peter.) Peter was working the whole time, not looking the...
Joblessness and Long-Term Unemployment
by Georgia Adamson - Aug, 2012
The topic of joblessness and long-term unemployment is potentially huge, and I realize that one blog post will not begin to cover it all. However, a teleconference I participated in today gave me some food for thought that I believe could be useful, so I wanted to share it.
