by Alexandra Levit and Cady Chesney - May, 2014
Being successful in a corporate environment can be a difficult task for those fresh out of college or new to the environment.

Alexandra Levit, a business consultant and author of "They Don’t Teach Corporate in College," joins the show to share insightful tips and tri...
 
  Sweeten the Bad Apple On Your Team
by Alexandra Levit - Apr, 2014
I’ve been getting a lot of reader emails about the pervasiveness of negativity in the workplace. I can understand where people are coming from. After all, the business world is still reeling from the effects of the recession, and many employees are overworked, frustrated and stressed out. Perhaps you have a mostly terrific team made up of individuals who are upbeat, motivated and dedicated to doing the best job possible. But t...
 
  How the Latitude Assessment Changed My Life – in Reverse
by Alexandra Levit - Mar, 2014
College career counselors often ask me to recommend assessments, which is kind of funny I never took any kind of test to inform the decision about a major or a career. I’d taken AP psychology in high school and did well in it, and so I picked that. I didn’t take a test when I graduated from Northwestern University either. I just knew that pursuing psychology would take at least four more years of school, and I wasn’t having...
 
  Millennials Aren’t Aimless Kids Anymore
by Alexandra Levit - Mar, 2014
Picturing millennials, we may think of late bloomers carrying huge debt and living in their parents’ basements. For many millennials, however, those days are far in the past. According to the results from a survey I conducted last year with Deloitte, 50 percent of currently employed millennials already meet our definition of a leader. Forty-four percent of them have only three to five years of experience, yet 41 percent hav...
 
  4 Ways You’re Derailing Your Career
by Alexandra Levit - Feb, 2014

It’s easy to see why reaming out the boss or taking an unscheduled vacation might get you into hot water, but more subtle self-destructive behaviors can be just as damaging. Here are a few to watch out for. 1. You’re all business at the office While it’s essential to be productive and possess a strong work ethic, you don’t want to be perceived as th...
 
  Why Boomers Are More Likely To Succeed as Entrepreneurs
by Alexandra Levit - Feb, 2014
A study by the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation reported that the highest rate of entrepreneurial activity over the last few years is not Gen-Y upstarts, but Baby Boomers in the 55-64 year age group. In fact, Boomers are actually driving a new entrepreneurship boom as they retire from their traditional corporate jobs and seek more meaningful sources of work. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, 60 percent of th...
 
  8 Things I Wish I Knew about Business and Careers When I Was 22
by Alexandra Levit - Feb, 2014
This month, I will release the 10th Anniversary edition of my first book, the bestselling They Don’t Teach Corporate in College. I wrote the book when I was 26, and ever since then, I’ve learned a ton about what works and what doesn’t in the business world. Today, I’m sharing some of my recent insights. No one cares as much about your career as you While your organization and your manager probably do have your best int...
 
  Why Entry-Level Hires Should Not Telecommute
by Alexandra Levit - Feb, 2014
Telecommuting is the future. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that about a quarter of employed Americans work from home some hours each week. In a recent study by the Families and Work Institute, 63 percent of employers said they allowed employees to work remotely in 2012, up from 34 percent in 2005. Even Marissa Mayer, the new Yahoo! CEO who banished telecommuting from company policy last year, can’t stop this t...
 
  How to Bring up Work Flexibility in a Job Interview
by Alexandra Levit - Feb, 2014
The first question to address on this topic is—should you bring up work flexibility in an initial job interview? And in general, the answer is no. Here’s the thing. Hiring managers want to believe that you’re a candidate who is enthusiastic about the job and willing to do whatever it takes to succeed. They don’t know you from Adam, so immediately broaching the perfectly legitimate question of flexible hours and benefits ma...

Baby boomers everywhere are lamenting the same workplace development. All of a sudden, the people working in their offices are younger than their children, who are now approaching the ripe age of 30. And somehow, the same millennial traits of self-assurance and eagerness that were cute in their kids have become annoying in their teammates. If you are in this boat, fear not. Here are a few ways to work effectively with those tw...
