    by Debra Wheatman - October 4, 2017
    I remember teachers always impressing upon students the importance of being able to write clearly and cogently. I was a strong writer, and banging out a quick five paragraph essay posed no problem for me, only minor inconvenience.

Yet, that label is much-desired these days among people, brands, and companies. And that’s not a bad...

  • 7 Tips on How to Create Your 30-Second Elevator Pitch
    by Lisa Rangel - September 29, 2017
    If you have a career of any kind, you need an elevator pitch (some call it an elevator speech or a value proposition). An elevator pitch is a roughly 30-second sound bite - a response to the question, 'Tell me about yourself' or 'What do you do?' Has anyone ever actually used the elevator pitch in an elevator? While I doubt you will actually use it in an elevator, you will most definitely use it at BBQ's, conferen...

    by Kris Dunn - September 28, 2017
    Nothing happens without sales. Treat your salespeople right, because unless they kill something, nobody eats. For the reasons stated above, it's not wrong for the leaders of your company to want to transform your culture into a sales machine.

    by Lindsey Pollak - September 27, 2017
    Here’s a question I often hear from corporate leaders: “What benefits do millennials really want?” In the past, most of us were quite satisfied with standard benefits like health insurance, a 401(k) plan and the occasional casual Friday. Today, the benefits game has seriously leveled up. First came free breakfast, then all-day-chef-prepared meals and laundry services. Now, cool companies offer an onsite...

    by Debra Wheatman - September 26, 2017
    In simpler times, back before everyone had a home computer, and before the emergence of the Internet, people used to use typewriters, paper, and postal mail.

If you were engaged in an aggressive job search, you would take your resume to a stationery store, purchase some 80-pound bond paper, and have multiple copies of your resume mad...
