Keeping It Simple in the New Year....

With the New Year upon us it’s time to clear the way for the new by discarding the old. Time to clear out the closets and rid yourself of what no longer fits. Grab that hefty bag and start emptying out draws, shelves and purge anything and everything in your life that no longer serves you. When you start the New Year with a clean slate in every aspect of your life, you send yourself and the universe a message that you are making room for the new. It’s time to simplify your life and your job… Continue

Hold the Vision and Trust the Process...

I’m hearing from more and more from people I meet with and interview how difficult it is out there. Particularly during the holidays when you are reminded about a holiday bonus, giving gifts and sharing good times with friends and family. You may not be in much of a mood to celebrate, but you have to show up, put a smile on your face, and pretend anyway. It’s not that you can’t be a good actor but why do you have to try so hard? It’s times like these where you have to hold onto the vision and… Continue

Jobspiration-When the Going Gets Tough ...

You know the old expression, “When the going gets tough, the tough get going!” Well, these days it might mean you should run! We are in the midst of tough times, no doubt about that. We also need all of the inspiration we can get and we are not likely to find it from our immediate surroundings.

The Holidays-Time To Get To Work!

While most of us are busy getting ready for the holidays, whether that includes traveling to visit family or making plans to entertain friends at home, we might want to make the most of the time we have now and do something a little different, like focus on ourselves.

Are You a Natural Born Recruiter?

Are You A Natural Born Recruiter?

What does it take to recruit talent these days? Is it as easy as it once was? When all it took was to post an advertisement in the trades, newspaper, job boards, Craigslist, or better yet, to actually pick up a phone and put the word out to your “network” for referrals? Do you remember when you would actually post jobs on a piece of paper in the lunch room so employees could apply to them before you even started the recruiting process accepting… Continue

Feel Sorry for the Recruiter...

We are all so concerned about our jobs, whether we have one or not. Everything from blogs, the news and just about anyone you’ll speak with reminds us that the recession is still well under way and maybe the end, is well not as close as we think. We try hard to focus our attention on how best to pursue our career goals, even when there doesn’t seem to be much encouragement. We sometimes become so self-absorbed in our own career angst, that we often forget the one who is on the frontline trying… Continue

Fast Forward, Rewind, Pause or Play Your Career …

It does not always feel like you make progress as you measure your success by how much you have truly accomplished and in what period of time it took to get there.
