By Nina Semczuk There’s nothing like the word negotiate to make you feel uneasy. You’ve probably wondered how exactly to confidently enter a salary negotiation conversation. Maybe you’ve been so nervous about broaching the subject that you haven’t even bothered to do it. You don’t want to be too hard on yourself about your nerves, but you also don’t want to leave money on the table either. Because if you want to be competitive in today’s market, if you want to make what you deserve to for the work you do, you’re going to have to
By Dave Martin of Help Scout It would be patronizing to tell you if you only want to work 40 hours a week, then just work 40 hours. It’s not that easy, of course. There are all sorts of reasons why you might feel unable to limit your workweek. For me, it’s that there’s always more work to be done. For others, it could be that your boss has a never ending list of assignments for you. However, my work is not my life, so I’ve had to put boundaries in place that help me actively avoid workaholism. Every person and every work situation is different, but i
By Christie Mims You sit at your desk, unhappy and tired. You keep thinking to yourself: I need to find something different. But then your brain skitters to a halt because you have no idea where to begin. It feels so overwhelming. So, you stop thinking about it. And you are back to where you started—unhappy, tired, and totally stuck. Any of this sound familiar? I used to be in your shoes. When I was trapped in my fancy-pants consulting job (I know, tiniest violin!), I keep wanting to find my passion. I used that term all the time. But I couldn’t get my mind a
We all have looming to-do lists to tackle, scary goals to fill, and distractions we have to avoid today. But before we jump into all that, I think you might want to watch some of these TED Talks on productivity. How does this not fall under the “distractions to avoid” category? Because unlike that Reddit hole you were about to fall into, these videos will actually teach you about efficiency, time management, procrastination, and all the awesome science and knowledge between them. And, let’s be real, you’d much rather watch these than start your actual work.
By Alison Cardy We’ve all heard those tried-and-true cliches meant to guide your career decisions. They come from people whose experience and advice you respect. They’re supposed to make your life easier, functioning as givens you can fall back on. But that’s not always the case and you might actually be an exception. Case in point, here are five rules you may be better off ignoring: 1. “Do What You Love” You’ve been looking for a while, but you still haven’t found a job that suits both your passion and your budget. People keep telli
“You will never feel truly satisfied by work until you are satisfied by life.” ~Heather Schuck When I was two years old, my parents got divorced. In other words, I’ve never seen my biological parents spending loving time with each other. I never had the chance to experience the small things most children take for granted. For example… I don’t remember my mom and dad ever sharing a loving kiss after a long day at work I don’t remember ever having both parents around to tuck me in at night And I never overhea
We’ve all been there: It’s the end of the interview, and after nearly an hour of pouring your heart (and work experience) out to a potential employer, the hiring manager asks if you have any last questions before wrapping up. It’s meant to be a formality, of course—a way to end the conversation without kicking you out right then and there. But it’s also an opportunity, intentional or not, to make one final impression and give your interviewer something to remember you by. As Marshall Darr points out in this short piece on Medium, this final remark is actuall
By Rachel Bitte Even though you love your day job, you’ve got some big ideas for a new passion project. Or maybe you’re saving for a big trip and looking for cash flow outside of your career. Or perhaps you’re trying to monetize a hobby you love. Whatever the case, side gigs—no matter what form they take—are becoming a smart move both financially and career-wise. And the smartest people know there are a few questions you should ask before diving in if you’re currently employed full-time. 1. Are Side Hustles Even Allowed at My Company?
By Sarah Chang Getting a job is hard work, especially for new college grads or anyone who’s been out of the workforce for a while. You spend weeks on end applying, preparing, and interviewing—so when you finally do land that gig, you’re ready to breathe a sigh of relief. But, not so fast! In fact, it’s just as important to impress during those early days on the job as it was during the interview process. From making connections to following up with your managers the right way, there’s some critical new job etiquette to keep in mind...Read more at: htt
By Ravi Raman, Executive Coach Gut-wrenching. That’s the best way to describe a voluntary decision to leave a perfectly good job to pursue something new. I’ve had to go through the painful process of changing jobs many times, and it’s not easy—but getting to the point of conviction that it’s the right thing to do isn’t impossible, either. It’s helpful to know the telltale signs that it’s time to move on to new horizons. I’m going to share with you seven of the most important ones. You might face just one, or perhaps all of them. E
