Do We Short-sight Ourselves in Our Job Search

As a career coach, the majority of calls that I receive are from people who are out of work and needing to get a job. I can hear the desperation in their voices, especially when they say that they have tried “everything” to find employment. They’ve sent out hundreds of resumes, sometimes a day, and spend hours searching the internet looking for employment opportunities. It turns out that they have no real focused job search, feeling that the more resumes they send, the better the odds. Often… Continue

Planning a Job Transition Strategy: Three Ways to Develop Your Plan of Attack

If you are in a job transition, either by entering the workforce, changing jobs, or after you’ve been laid off or fired, you will need to have a plan of attack for how you will find your next job. Your job search strategy is your roadmap for how you will go about finding and obtaining a job. Even if you know where you want to go, you still need a well thought-out strategy or plan that will give you focus and streamline your efforts. If you haven’t decided what type of job, or career path you… Continue

1) A Wireless Router,

2) A computer with a Wireless Network Adapter that recognizes the signal from the router.

If you are a bilingual professional and your office outsourced translation services, what was your demeanor when the translation was received?

Just for Laughs! 12 Tips from a Translator to a Client...

12 Tips from a Translator to a Client

on How to Enhance their Relationship

1. Never give me work in the morning. Always wait until 5:00 p.m. and then bring it to me. The challenge of a deadline is refreshing.

2. If it's really a "rush job" call in and interrupt me every 10 minutes to inquire how it's going. That helps.

3. Always leave the office without telling anyone where you're going. It gives me a chance to be creative when I need to ask a question.

So pretty much I'm just talking about the great people that I work with. To start off I work with another intern named Colby he is really awesome and he wears… Continue
