By J.T. O'Donnell My friend, GL Hoffman wrote a post/e-book that outlines 100 attributes of people who start businesses. As soon as I read it, I thought, "These apply to ANY person who wants to know how to be employable for the duration of their professional lifetimes." Here's why... The new rules of job search and career development involve some harsh realities. Things like: - EVERY job is temporary! - College teaches you how to learn, but not necessarily how to get a job. - Brand or BE branded. - Jobs aren't deserved, they're earned. That being said, GL's list perfectly outlines why we all need to see ourselves today as starting our own 'businesses-of-one.' Which means, we can use his tips to assess our ability to succeed in today's competitive working world. From there, build steps to make sure you meet all of these attributes and I guarantee the success you seek will materialize. Here are my 10 favorites: #3 - Learn how to ask for advice. #6 - Find a business metaphor for your business idea. #11 - What pain are you solving? #21 - Delayed gratification. #32 - Ignore the little things. #72 - 4X the money, 4X the time #78 - Under promise, over deliver. #93 - Screw security. #97 - Don't blame others. #100 - Humorous. I shot an impromptu video above while hanging out at my favorite coffee shop to tell you why the above are so vital to professional success. Now, tell me your favorites below. In your opinion, what attributes are most vital?

According to a recent study on college employment, 43% of the nation's full-time college undergraduates and 81% of part-time undergraduates worked while getting a degree. Not surprisingly, time shortage is one of the biggest reasons for students dropping out before completing their degree. So how do you make sure that you stay the course?

Whether you're new to LinkedIn or you're a seasoned user, connecting with new people can be a challenge, especially when you're not sure what to write in your LinkedIn invitation. You might be tempted to use the generic "I'd like to add you to my professional network on LinkedIn" template, but beware! By not personalizing your message, you could lose a precious opportunity to network.
