    Classroom to Boardroom - Creating Job Opportunites in College
by Sarah Kikkert and Tim Muma - Sep, 2015
One of the best ways to learn is to get first-hand accounts from the individuals who have recently lived through the exact scenario you're currently in. With that, Tim Muma is joined by Sarah Kikkert, the communications and social media coordinator for the Wisconsin State Fair. Sarah hasn't been out of college for long, but she took every opportunity to work, learn and network while she was in school. Sarah describes the keys...

  Do You Choose Your Arguments Wisely?
by Marshall Goldsmith - Feb, 2016
The #1 bad habit of successful people is winning too much. It is easily the most common behavioral problem I observe in successful people. You might think this is okay. How can winning too much be a problem? Isn’t winning too much why people are successful? No, not really, it’s oftentimes in spite of it. Winning too much is the #1 challenge for many of us, because it underlies nearly every other behavioral problem. For inst...
 
  Meet The Employers Who Are Seeking You Out
by Linda Dobogai - Feb, 2016
Wouldn’t it be wonderful that if instead of having to chase down job opportunities, you could just get a large number of employers together in one room that are eager to meet you? Actually this scenario is very real and occurs frequently in the form of job fairs. Each year thousands of people take advantage of this short-cut to talk directly to recruiters about their job interests, skills, and backgrounds. Even though often...
 
  Students Can't Ignore Important Activities And Still Expect To Land A Good Job
by Bob Roth - Feb, 2016
When students go through college without doing any of the things that lead to the best jobs, they should expect to be disappointed. The competition for good jobs is stiff, even in an excellent job market. Employers do not relax their requirements just because they have more open jobs. And yet, each year, many students graduate from college unprepared to compete for those jobs. Students who have already graduated or are i...
 
  Are You Using Your Genius to Improve Things?
by Marshall Goldsmith - Jan, 2016
Like many young Ph.D. students, I was deeply impressed with my own intelligence, wisdom, and profound insights into the human condition. I consistently amazed myself with my ability to judge others and see what they were doing wrong. I thought I was more than good enough, and everyone else was not quite up to par. Dr. Fred Case was both my UCLA dissertation advisor and boss. My dissertation was connected with a consulting p...
 
  Are You Wrong (and Foolish) If You Don't Follow The Advice of Renowned Experts In Your Field?
by Kathy Caprino - Jan, 2016
In the professional world I’m immersed in – coaching and online personal and professional development services – I’m literally bombarded every day with “experts” who share what they believe is the one “right” way to proceed in life and in business. Today, we can tap into wisdom and advice from literally an unlimited number and array of sources: from world-renowned researchers and speakers, to multimillionaire entrepreneurs, to...
 
  The One Relationship That Will Change Your Career
by Lindsey Pollak - Jan, 2016
Many well-respected leaders share a secret to career success: having a mentor who guided and advised them along the way. I have relied on the wisdom of a helpful circle of professionals over the years, and I have benefitted from being a mentor, as well (as my readers know, I’m a big fan of the “reverse mentor,” in particular). One thing we don’t hear about often enough: Mentorship is a two-way street. Millennials need to be...
 
  It's Not About You: What You Really Need To Know About Your Personal Brand
by Lindsey Pollak - Jan, 2016
In 1997, business guru Tom Peters wrote an article for Fast Company, “The Brand Called You.” The timing for this revolutionary concept was especially powerful for me, as a recent college graduate just beginning my career. Now, I know the phrase “personal brand” can turn some people off (much like the word “networking.”) If it sounds too salesy or buzzwordy to you, I totally understand; all we’re talking about it is the con...
 
  Beyond Perks: These Companies Are Getting Creative To Keep Millennials On Board
by Lindsey Pollak - Jan, 2016
For a long time, the conversation about attracting and retaining millennial employees focused on perks. Over the past few years, companies have realized that creating a millennial-friendly environment doesn’t just mean video games and free granola bars. Employers are making significant strides in offering benefits that are important to millennials, from open offices to flexible work schedules to time off for volunteering. I...

  Quiz Can Help Measure Your Assertiveness
by Carole Kanchier - Jan, 2016
Shirley was taught to put others' needs before her own. She usually gets stuck with office "odd jobs." Jerry keeps getting promoted into administrative roles he dislikes. Although he does a great job, he prefers working with people. Many employees don't stand up for themselves and express their feelings. They're not assertive. Assertive behavior differs from aggressive behavior. Aggressive people accomplish goals at all co...
