Career


Time for a Midyear Checkup of Your Social Media Presence – If you’re one of those mid-level managers secure in your position who hasn’t wanted to take the time to learn about social media, you’re not just missing out — you could be damaging your career in the long run.

Help! My office shyness is hurting my career goals – I am an intern at a financial investment firm. I’ll soon graduate with a degree in business administration, majoring in finance. I have been told by a few people on my team that I do a fantastic job and that the team really likes me. To increase my chances of being hired permanently (they want to hire recent graduates and my department is growing), my co-workers say I should talk to the few people I don’t do a lot of intern work for, so they can get to know me and my abilities.

What your resume can’t do for you – One of the biggest sources of job seeker frustration is sending resumes out and then hearing nothing back. It feels pointless and futile — because for most people, it is pointless and futile. If you don’t have the kinds of skills that employers are desperate to hire, then your resume will not be much help to you, and your job search might take a while.

Why ‘follow your passion’ is bad advice – Do you want to love what you do for a living? Follow your passion. This piece of advice provides the foundation for modern thinking on career satisfaction. And this is a problem.
