Happy Administrative Professionals’ Day!

Who are the most powerful and important people at work? Administrative assistants! Great article on this topic via Inc. Magazine...

As a covert agent in New York City, Jason Hogg was trained to track down criminals. Turns out, it was pretty good training for building a $300 million business, too.

You just accepted a new job. Congratulations! You’re so excited, you feel as if you could fly. Then it hits you… now you have to quit your current job. Ugh. 

Don’t worry, just follow these steps to exit your current job in a manner that is professional and will leave your reputation intact:  http://onforb.es/1hNWuhg

Career Tip Thursday:  Finding a job or career you’re passionate about isn’t always easy. If you’re struggling with this, take a time out for personal reflection and exploration of what makes you happy, things you enjoy doing, and things you don’t like to do.  

Today is the perfect day to begin considering your future and how you can fill your life with meaning.
