Recently, an overseas client contacted me who was in the planning stages of moving back to the U.S. Specifically, he was wondering about how to make the transition back to the American job market. I suggested that he start reviewing U.S.-based job openings to get a sense of what the requirements are, and then take the time to sign up for online courses or attend conferences (if possible) in order to improve critical skills.
Goal setting can get left by the wayside. The culprit? The daily grind of work can mean that your career comes to a screeching halt. It’s all too easy to get caught up in routines. And then one day, you wake up and you think, “What the heck am I doing here?!” Don’t feel bad. This happens to all of us at some point.
I have the occasional client who pauses when they are told the investment level of a great cover letter.
Why so much, they wonder. Is a cover letter really that important?
Great employers invest in their employees, follow through on their promises, and encourage greatness.
Bad employers push you aside and see you as disposable…
Do you enjoy exhibiting leadership at work, but you don’t want to be a leader?
As much as everyone likes to move forward in their career, many professionals don’t want to get into leadership roles…
Owning failure and changing your mindset around how you talk about it and deal with it is an incredibly powerful friend and ally in your career.
