Tis the season when impending college graduates need to make a strong push for that first professional job, but whether you’re seeking job one, a summer internship, or a senior-executive position, you’ll benefit from these timeless job search tips...
Times have certainly changed. When I graduated from college in the late ‘80s, the biggest struggle my friends and I had was choosing among our handful of job offers. Today’s market has more than “eradicated” those “struggles” of yesteryear.Trust me, my friends and I were no different than you are. Times were different. Companies were different. Companies approached college and campus recruiting differently.As I’ve been coaching and mentoring rece...

Let go of this type of thinking to set yourself on the path to happiness and success!
Almost thirty years of work experience has taught me many things. One of the most important is that “life” and “work” isn’t nearly as separate as many believe. There is a thin, if any, line

Based on milewalk's annual employment survey, in 2014, seven out of eight employees were either happy or very happy with their company. In 2015, that number has dropped precipitously to less than one out of two.

It's one of the most gut-wrenching, emotional decisions. Learn how to make it wisely.
A few years ago, a protégé who I had worked with for several years while at my first company became a milewalk candidate. He had been with his current employer (my former employer) for approximately ten years or so. He had approached me because he felt it might be time for a change. I was happy to help.We started discussing his current situation, opportunities for improvement, needs, and so on. I knew him well and had worked with him for several ...

If I would have known then what I know now...
We have all looked back on our lives—for however brief a moment—and wondered what if I would have known better at the time?I also wished when I was a 22-year-old I had a few more of the ingenious inventions others created. I would have loved to have had email and a cell phone. It would have been especially handy if the cell phone could house all my friends’ phone numbers. Instead, I had to write them in an actual notebook (called a phonebook). Of...

Almost thirty years of work experience has taught me many things. One of the most important is that “life” and “work” isn’t nearly as separate as many believe. There is a thin, if any, line between them and your happiness and success. Another lesson is that the attitudes you carry permeate analogously through both.Based on my experience working with people from many walks of life and hundreds of professions, I’ve noticed some “thought culprits” t...

As part of Interview Intervention: Communication That Gets You Hired, I included what I consider the 14 most effective job interview questions an employer can ask a job candidate. While there are loads of great interviewing techniques and questions, I feel it’s important to balance time and effectiveness when determining whether a candidate and employer relationship will be strong long-term.I'd like to emphasize that point by adding that individu...

Feel free to run from the job interview whenever you're asked these questions!
