There you are: sitting on the beach, covered in sunscreen, reading your favorite book, drinking your favorite drink under the cool shade of an umbrella. Life doesn’t get any better than this… Suddenly, a door slams, a phone rings, a printer turns on. You jolt back into consciousness. You’re at work, sitting in your cubicle, without even a hint of sunshine streaming in from outside. The days of sleeping in until 12 then spending the day at the beach on a random Tuesday are gone. When you’re working a full-time job, finding time to enjoy the warm, bright summer weather...

Motivating your team can be a challenge, especially during the summer when no one wants to be stuck in the office and everyone is daydreaming about the beach. When you employees aren’t “in it to win it,” your brand will suffer. That’s why it’s important to make motivating your team a priority. 1. Be Supportive I think it’s very important to have a supportive team. Our team is very open and supportive of each other. This attitude encourages our employees to go to each other when they are stuck in a project or need some extra input. I know from...

An interview can be extremely nerve-wracking. Why? Because you’re simply being judged. The fate of your future relies on how you come across to an employer/interviewer. There are so many interview prep tips out there; let’s cover the most important four. #1 – Being Nervous Is Good, But Being Too Nervous Isn’t You need to relax as much as possible (easier said than done) and take a confident approach – being a nervous wreck doesn’t show the interviewee your true personality. On the other hand, there’s a fine line between confidence and arrogance, so be careful. Think about what you’re saying...

Social media recruiting. If you’re a 21st century job seeker, you’ve likely heard those three words buzzing around recently. The truth is, social media is a widely used resource that job recruiters have been tapping into for years. So, it’s no surprise that 92% of employers currently recruit or are planning to recruit job candidates on social media (Jobvite). While the job market is getting flooded with qualified college graduates, there simply aren’t enough jobs to go around. Social media has become a secondary resume; another resource to whittle down a growing applicant pool. 4 Tweets That Don’t Belong On...

I’ve known about ‘working vacations’ for as long as I can remember. Growing up, my dad owned an engineering firm. Every time we went away, it was a working vacation. However, I realize most people don’t generally take these types of vacations. When they go away, their company and co-workers don’t hear from them until they get back. And they definitely don’t think about, let alone, do any work while their out of the office. Yet, this summer, I guarantee more people than ever before, even people who don’t believe in working vacations, will take their first one. I’ve talked...

Doing well in an interview is the result of many things, ranging from the first impressions you make with your physical appearance (body language) to how well you communicate and respond to the interview questions. Watch: How To Handle Tough Interview Questions There are the predictable questions, such as “What are your greatest strengths/weaknesses?” and then there are the offbeat questions that may make your nerves rattle and leave you dazed as to how to respond diplomatically and professionally. The fact is, there isn’t going to be a correct answer to offbeat questions, only a correct response. Such questions are usually...

A lot of people tell you to follow your passion, follow your dreams, or do what makes you happy. But how many people are really doing it?
