Networking with strangers can be a terrifying experience for many people, especially when it’s in-person. What do you say? What if you’re awkward? What if you don’t make a good first impression? 1. Know How To Break The Ice Struggling for ice breakers? Instead of trying to memorize one-liners, keep things simple. “A simple ‘Hello, my name is ___’ is more than sufficient if said with a smile,” said LoDolce. “Or, my favorite, ‘So, what brings you here?'” 2. Get Warmed up Don’t start batting without a few practice swings! Make sure you talk to a few people before you...

Important Resume things to know
So, you think you know everything about resumes, huh? Well, that’s good, but a lot of people really don’t. Let’s clear up a few things. Here are three things EVERYONE needs to know about resumes: 1. Your resume should be strictly fact-based. If your resume has any adjectives or any other subjective terms, you need to hit the Delete button ASAP. Employers and recruiters are looking for hard facts and skills. They are NOT looking for subjective statements like “hardworking team player” or “results-driven.”   Ew. Get. Away. Let’s stick to the facts, shall we? Only list hard skills and...

So many of us settle for an unhealthy relationship with our manager, hoping that it will eventually blow over. The truth is, relationships are a lot like icebergs – what you see above the water is usually rooted in something much bigger happening beneath the surface. What you may experience as a pattern of sharp feedback or increased micromanaging might be rooted in something bigger. Even if it’s not, sweeping these...

A few months ago, my 10-year-old son announced that he wanted a new brand of body wash. He had been using Spiderman Berry Bubble for quite a while, so when he requested Axe Body Wash instead, I was a bit surprised. Nonetheless, I agreed, and we came home from the store with a large bottle of Axe Apollo shower gel. A few days later, we added the body spray to his collection. When I asked him why he chose this new brand, his response was “Spiderman is for little kids and, well Mom, it was time.” Since that day, he...

Here’s something interesting: the way you respond to specific situations tends to be the way you respond across the board. This is nothing mysterious; it simply reveals some of our character traits underlying our behavior. The goal here is to be aware of your behavior patterns during your career transition. For example: If some of your friends you frequently hang out with make plans to get together without you, what is your first reaction? Do you feel rejected, do you get angry, or do you simply wonder what they’re up to and assume they were just about to ask you? Your reaction to...

Job hunting is easy, right? All you do is find a recruiter, comb through their ads and apply to the jobs that suit you. How’s that for simple? Well, if you’ve ever had to spend a while canvassing the job market, you’ll know that it’s anything but.
