This article is going to be short and sweet. It also might be the most important piece of advice you get this year… about taking advice. You see, advice is a tricky thing. Most of us happily take it from our friends, family members, co-workers, and the Internet. But have you ever asked yourself whether that advice is working for you? Is it helping you get the results you want in life? Especially when it comes to success and your career, advice can be a dangerous thing. My Dad has one idea about success, and would give me different advice...

Remember all those years ago when you first started down your career path, making steady progress or landing a job you were sure you would want forever? Or maybe you just accepted a job that seemed promising, or that you felt was the best you could do, and one thing led to another – leaving you stuck without even a honeymoon period to look back fondly on? It happens a lot. We wake up and don’t want the job that we’ve got. It pays decently, or more-than-decently, and/or provides some other Holy Grail-type perks, such as flex time or, the...

Opening a new business can be extremely fun and exciting.

In order to succeed in the workplace, you need to know how to bring your ideas to fruition. Unless you understand who the key influencers are in your office, even your best ideas won’t receive the recognition they deserve. The patterns of influence in most offices don’t follow the lines of the formal org chart, so it’s important to identify who has the power to institute change. You also need to know how to persuade those with informal power to buy into your ideas. Here are five tips for establishing your office influence, identifying the key influencers in your company,...

Just like when they entered the workplace, Millennials are changing things up as they begin stepping into leadership roles. Gen Y is ready to take on new challenges as they grow professionally, calling for the end of Millennial shaming, a trend that I cover in my recent Tomorrow @Work Trends Report in conjunction with The Hartford. Related: Why Millennials Aren’t Really Lazy Contrary to some stereotypes associated with Millennials, The Hartford’s 2013 Leadership Survey shows Gen Y is motivated to make the transition and become leaders in multiple aspects of their lives. Where Gen Y Leads Today Despite being the...

Anyone who is on the lookout for a new or different job knows how important it is to have a solid portfolio. However, the kind of portfolio you want to establish is dependent on the field you’re in. An artist, for example, is going to have a very different one from a sales manager, whose portfolio will look very different from an executive’s. Knowing and understanding what tools are available to you will help you make the most of yours. Remember, everyone has a portfolio – you have to make yours stand out. Choosing Correctly Okay, this isn’t so much...

Do what you love. We’ve heard that phrase a million times. It sounds so simple, so obvious, that we don’t really catch it for what it is: bad advice. “What’s that?” you say. “I shouldn’t do what I love?” Well, in a way, no you shouldn’t. But before you have a panic attack, let’s back up. I’m not asking you to resign yourself to a life of paper pushing and boredom. I would never do that to you. To get the life you want, I’m asking you to be intentional rather than indulgent. That’s a big concept, so let’s unpack...

Employers are inundated with quality candidates these days, whether through online job postings, submissions through their corporate websites, or unsolicited contacts from prospective employees. So, what’s the best way to cut through the clutter and grab a company’s attention? Their employee referral program. According to a recent New York Times article “big companies are increasingly using their own workers to find new hires, saving time and money.” At large firms such as Ernst & Young, employee referrals account for 45% of nonentry-level new hires, while Deloitte sources 49% of their experienced hires in the same way. A recent study by...

Did you realize LinkedIn has a built-in marketing and search engine-friendly capability that is easy to use – and often overlooked? Well, neither do most job hunters. The best 120 characters of keyword optimization you can find for a job search, your LinkedIn Headline (or title) is a major piece of the puzzle that can help recruiters locate your skills. If you’re one of the many that loaded up this field with your current job title (such as “Vice President of Operations” or “Sales Executive”), or worse yet, used it to declare your unemployed status, you’re missing out on a great opportunity to...
