Author: Chelsea Babin Get ready to start networking! If you’re uncomfortable with the process or unfamiliar with the best ways to go about it, don’t worry. These fail-safe tips will help you effectively develop a network of IT professionals. Put yourself out there: The first step of any kind of networking is to put yourself out there.

By: Justine Clay Do you ever worry that someone’s going to catch on and call you out as a fraud? Me too. Being a creative freelancer or entrepreneur means that we often say “yes” to things that we’re not 100% sure we can do (yet). I once dated an actor who claimed he could horseback ride in an audition and then had rush out and get lessons when he got the part. He knew that sometimes, if you want the part badly enough, you have to fake it ’til you make it. In a world of authentic marketing (of which I am a huge proponent), I understand that ‘faking […]Continue Reading... No Comments.

Education of course is quite important when you want to land that dream job. While in college I was under the impression when I finished college I would go straight into that career when I came out. I was wrong; instead I spent over 5 years as a retail salesperson before I got my opportunity. First when you choose a career, research it. Find out what is the best educational path for that career. For example someone doing banking and finance would be best off with a college degree but a certification in that field may also improve you job chances. A mechanic however may be better off in more […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
by: Samantha Knowles While traveling, reserve a seat that lets you work. I always choose an aisle seat. I feel like I can stretch out a bit more, and can make it to the restroom without disturbing those around me. Everyone has a different seat preference, whether it be aisle or window, but either way, you will be more productive when you are comfortable. Avoid the chitchat.If you are trying to get things done on your flight (although I reluctantly will admit you can make great business connections en route), the last thing you need is a stranger updating you on his mother’s bunion surgery. I find that the best […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
Is it time to consider a new job? Are you stuck in a low paying, low-interest job and craving more? Sometimes, the worst part is getting started looking for that new job. Here are a few tips to get you started on that road to a new job: Cold call. Locate a specific person who can help you (usually the human resources hiring manager at a company or organization you’re interested in). Call that person and ask if they are hiring, but do not become discouraged if they are not. Ask what kind of qualifications they look for or if they have apprentice or government-sponsored work programs. Ask if you […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
The key to any good strategy is to have a solid understanding of the causes of a problem. Once you have a solid understanding of the sources, you can then work to find solutions and determine the best route to attack it. This approach shouldn’t just be left for tackling business. This can be applied to any situation, including your stress level and those around you. In a perfect world, employers should provide a stress-free work environment, recognize where stress is becoming a problem for staff, and take action to reduce stress. However, this isn’t always possible, even with the best employers. Stress is inevitable, but how you deal with […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
We rarely leave things to chance when it comes to the important aspects of our lives. When bills arrive, we don’t let them pile up on our desks and just hope they somehow – by chance – get paid. On our anniversaries, we don’t roll the dice and hope the cosmos somehow magically buys a great gift for our wives and husbands. When crossing the street, we don’t close our eyes and hope chance favors us and doesn’t send a bus our way. No, in all of these instances, we have a plan – a system – that ensures our goals are achieved in an efficient and effective manner. And […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
