They’ve achieved a great deal in their careers, but don’t know where the road they are on is taking them. Many want to move forward, but the economy and a tough job market have held them in place. Although those are real barriers, I believe that a lack of visio...
I Just Got Hired for a Role that Never Existed
by Nimish Thakkar - Jun, 2012
The Hidden Job Market refers to over 75% job openings that are never advertised. Yes, the employment ads (online and offline) account for just a small fraction of openings that actually exist.

If you are considering a new career, have you done any thinking about how that career intersects with who you are (or want to be)? Focusing your your values is one way to help direct your se...

You’re a Really OLD Job Seeker!
by Georgia Adamson - Jun, 2012
Okay, so the title is a somewhat hokey bid to get your attention, but it does point to a situation that everyone really needs to be aware of. As I’ve said before, we all know age discrimination in the workplace is illegal, and we also know it happens–probably more often than you would like to think. Plus, it’s an issue even if you’re still on the sunny side of 40 and think it doesn’t apply to you. Maybe it doesn’t now, but it...
