  Career Satisfaction & Lateral Moves
by Georgia Adamson - May, 2016
Many people change jobs to gain career advancement because they feel stuck where they are and see no likelihood of change in their current organization. Conventional wisdom suggests that moving “up the ladder” is the way to advance professionally, which might mean finding a new job in another company. However, a relatively new trend in the work world indicates that not everyone thinks this way or adopts the traditional care...
 
  Job Search: What's Your ROI Message?
by Georgia Adamson - May, 2016
No employer is going to hire you because you’re a good person–likable, presentable, etc. Not even if you really need a job, sad to say. You’ll have to do better than that if you want to land the new job you’re after. What you need to consider is why the prospective employer should care, why they would think you could be the answer they’re looking for. That’s it, pure and simple. Of course, it’s really not quite that simple....
 
  Is Fear The "Enemy" Of Your Career Success?
by Georgia Adamson - May, 2016
If you’re not progressing in your career the way you think you should or if you’re holding back from making a move that might give your career a boost, maybe fear is the culprit. Fear can wear many faces, and you might not recognize it as being the source of your problems. Fear of Change Probably one of the biggest fears is the fear of change. You can hesitate, even wait too long and lose out on a new employment opportun...
 
  Unethical Employers - Deceptive Practices
by Georgia Adamson - May, 2016
Ever had a company hire you for a job that sounded just right for you–and turned out to be all wrong? It’s possible you didn’t do enough due diligence ahead of time, but on many occasions the fact is that the company was simply unethical in its approach to hiring. Unfortunately, you didn’t find that out until you went to work there. Unethical Hiring Approaches & Deceptive Practices Some common elements seem to be part of...
 
  Cutting Corners is a Rotten Choice
by Georgia Adamson - May, 2016
Companies that are in a financial bind or aggressively determined to steamroller over their competition can view cutting corners as a viable option. By that, I mean that they take actions such as using inferior materials for their products or providing misleading information to convince potential customers to use their services rather than a competitors’. Why should you care? I can think of at least two reasons: 1.Your e...
 
  Resume & Job Interview Black Hole
by Georgia Adamson - May, 2016
Have you ever submitted your resume for an opening that matched your qualifications and never received an acknowledgment? Or have you interviewed with a company and never been informed as to the outcome (which obviously meant they hadn’t picked you!)? Companies too often show a lack of respect for candidates who respond to openings by submitting a resume and an equally dismal lack of courtesy toward applicants they actually...
 
  How Well Does Your Company Communicate?
by Georgia Adamson - May, 2016
If you answered, “Not well” to this question, you’re probably in good company. It often seems that employers either don’t “get” how valuable clear communication with employees can be to overall employee satisfaction and company well-being or they have an agenda that precludes giving consideration to issues not clearly profit-oriented. Why Some Companies Don’t Communicate Well with Employees Actually, I suppose there coul...
 
  5 Costly Job Search Mistakes - And What To Do About Them
by Georgia Adamson - May, 2016
For many people, job searching is less fun than going to the dentist! The path to success (a new job) is fraught with pitfalls, and the process ranks high on the Stress-Meter. While no one can guarantee you a smooth, stress-free ride, you can evaluate possible problems and prepare an active defense. Then you come up with a Plan B in case your defense crumbles! 5 Job Search Mistakes You Don’t Want to Make These are just a...
 
  Job Search Failures - Rarely "Fatal"
by Georgia Adamson - Jan, 2016
Wouldn’t it be great if every job search you ever planned could be executed without failures. In other words, you would move yourself from concept and plan to a successful conclusion (i.e., the desired new job) without any mistakes. That’s a dream, and if you recognize that dreams don’t always work the way you hope they will, you’ll be in a better situation. You can regroup and move forward again toward your ultimate goal, whi...
 
  First Impressions Matter–They Last
by Georgia Adamson - Dec, 2015
In job interviews and on the job, first impressions matter because they last. In fact, they often take effect in an instant but can be difficult to change, if not impossible (depending on how strong they were to begin with). I’m not talking about something like “is my tie straight?” (if you wear one). I’m referring to more subtle examples, such as the way you greet someone (the interviewer, maybe a new boss or colleague). D...
