So You Didn't Get the Job – That Doesn't Mean Your Relationship With the Company Needs to End

ANGELA COPELAND  You attended a series of interviews. You took time off of work. You bought a new suit. And you didn’t get the job. After all that hard work, rejection stings especially badly. It’s pretty awful when a company puts you through the ringer just to toss you aside in the end. Sometimes, they don’t even notify you. They aren’t shopping for a new pair of shoes. You’re a person, and they should treat you like one. What do you do once you’ve been rejected? If you’re like most people, you stay as far away from the compa

To Find Diamonds in the Rough, Look at Abilities, Not Resumes

by: JOSH MILLET In 2009, programmer Brian Acton applied for positions at Facebook and Twitter and was passed over. Five years later, he sold his startup, WhatsApp, for $19 billion. What happened in between those two events? Two critical moments occurred. First, Acton got an iPhone and had an idea for an app that represented a new market with unlimited potential. Second, he decided to put his time and energy into a startup. Looking back now, it seems absurd that any major tech company would pass over a clear innovator like Acton, but that’s exactly what happened –

Starting Your First Job? How to Stay Organized and Sane

by MELINDA PRICE Like many other young professionals, I have a jam-packed schedule. A typical week for me consists of working at my 9-to-5 job, volunteering at two nonprofits, happy hours and hikes with friends, networking at professional events , getting in some “me” time, and even doing some contract work. And I love this pace, but when I first made the transition from college to working world, I found that balancing a new job, a personal life, and a new city—and staying happy doing it—was a pretty big challenge. Sure, I did a lot in undergrad, too, but t

10 Ways to Build Your Mental Strength

Article by Amy Morin Developing mental strength takes conscious effort, dedication, and daily practice. Start with these 10 exercises to work out your mental muscles: 1. Establish Goals The human brain is naturally predisposed to reach for and achieve goals. Don’t just set one big goal, like “I want to lose 50 pounds.” Set more manageable short-term goals, too, such as “I want to work for 30 minutes without checking my phone” or “I want to reply to all of my emails by noon today.” With each goal you achieve, you’ll gain more confi

Your Career Path Will Be Full of Twists and Turns – and That's a Good Thing

by: ANGELA COPELAND The job market is full of twists and turns you’d never expect. I faced my first twist during college. I grew up in the ’90s alongside the internet. Companies like AOL were just starting out. With a “fast” dial-up modem, you could connect to the web through your phone line. It was just the sort of thing a teenager dying to go to college out of state needed. It was an exciting time. Everything and everyone suddenly seemed magically intertwined in a new way. Startups were popping up everywhere. Young people were getting investments to

What to Do When You Hate Your Job and You Don't Have Anything Else Lined Up (Yet)

Photo of sad man courtesy of Shutterstock. There’s no way to sugarcoat it—you hate your job. Your stomach is in knots every single Sunday night. Your walk into the office often feels like you’re trudging through cement. And, a sledgehammer seems like the only suitable way to silence your alarm clock each weekday morning—at least you’d be able to get some of that pent-up aggression and hostility out. First of all, I’m sorry. Your career is a huge part of your life, and when it doesn’t leave you feeling fulfilled and satisfied, it can have a pr

3 Reasons Why Your Employee’s Personal Brands Are Your Biggest Untapped Resource

by: KARA WALSH Let’s say you’re in the shampoo aisle at your favorite drugstore and you want to try something different from your usual product. You’re between two brands: one you see plastered on every billboard and one that comes highly recommended by your friend. Which do you choose? If I had to guess, I’d say you’re most likely to go with the brand that has your friend’s stamp of approval. Numerous studies have shown that people tend to trust what other people have to say more than they trust brand messaging. This fact is exactly

How the Perfection Trap Is Ruining Your Hiring Process

by: MIKE MCRITCHIE  “If you wait for perfect conditions, you will never get anything done.” – Ecclesiastes 11:4 You’ve seen them: overly detailed job descriptions masquerading as job postings. You’ve probably even written them yourself. When it starts, you’re simply framing a description of your ideal candidate in isolation. You check all the normal boxes.
