Career Tip: Get a Professional Opinion

People tell you all manner of false information in a job search, including "resumes are dead," "you only need a one page resume," "LinkedIn is just like Facebook," "a cover letter isn't important," and "if you apply to enough jobs online through job boards you will get a job."  Listen to real experts in a job search, not friend, family and acquaintance opinions.  While the aforementioned are well-meaning, they will make your job search longer, more frustrating, and potentially unsuccessful.  Get the facts from an experienced career professional if you have questions.  To your job search success!

CAREER TIP: Detach From Your Technology

Detach from tech on evenings, weekends and vacations. When you never “leave” work or social networks you become numb to information and less productive in your work.  Constant use of tech devices has been linked to higher stress, anxiety, and depression which leads to lowered work performance and decreased job satisfaction.  Give your mind a break – try working each day after a night off without work emails and social media overload and watch your productivity soar.

CAREER TIP – Make Networking Less Stressful

Afraid of networking?  Take a friend with you.  Going to an “event” can seem very intimidating, particularly if you are somewhat shy.  Having a friend along gives you an automatic “group.”  If the friend happens to be more outgoing, you will have the added benefit of them making introductions as well.
