Career Tip Thursday: Receiving criticism can sometimes be a messy situation, especially when it’s unexpected, harsh or given when others are present.

You might feel shocked, angry or even embarrassed by the comments. But before getting defensive, try switching your mind-set and treating the feedback as a gift, rather than criticism.

This is an interesting article and a good reminder that not all office perks will lead to happier employees. Sometimes, a perk can have the opposite effect.
Want happier, more productive employees? Then these 'perks' need to go.

Happy National Mentoring Month! Are you a mentor?

"Nobody succeeds on their own: each young person's strength and resilience is fostered by those who have taught them they can do anything they put their mind to. Whether helping mentees study for a test, learn a new skill, or lift their heads up after a setback, mentors provide them the chance they need to move forward and set their sights even higher." ~ Barack Obama

Career Tip Thursday: Sometimes, searching for a job or trying to find a different job can be so frustrating and stressful that it becomes overwhelming.

It’s important to recognize when you’re feeling overwhelmed, so you can take a personal “time out.” Give yourself permission to take a break from your job search.

Take a brief time out to relax, enjoy life and to remember what you’re thankful for. Who knows? After your break, your new-found positive attitude and increased energy might be exactly what’s needed to help you find your dream job!
