Career Mania 2012

It’s coming… and it’s going to change your life. I know you are thinking, “I don’t believe you.” – But, it’s true. Here’s why... Resolutions Are a Waste Every year, millions upon millions of Americans make ”finding a new, better job” their New Year’s resolution. And every year, they fail at making it happen. Why? Because just saying you want something doesn’t make it come true. When it comes to feeling better about your career, the old saying, “actions speak louder than words,” has never been more accurate. Let’s Face it, You Can’t Do it Alone Reality check: If you could have achieved the career success you want and deserve right now on your own, you would have. So, this year you need to get some help! But, before you can do that, you need to take two action steps – right now! Step 1: Stop Thinking “Free & Easy” is Going to Solve Your Problem If there is one thing you can do for yourself that will really make a difference in your career in 2012, it’s to stop assuming all the career advice you need should be free and easy to access. Now, you might be thinking, “Aren’t I reading this on a free career blog?” Yes, but this site is designed to give you some basic insight into what it takes to be successful in all aspects of career. It by no means is designed to give you all the answers. Do you honestly think the experts on this site have the ability to give all their best information and resources away for free? Their job is to help people with their careers. So, their best material is saved for paying customers. Step 2: Quit Being a Professional Hypocrite Now, I know for a fact your initial reaction to the above was resentment. Somewhere deep in your heart, you believe career advice and coaching should be free. Why? Society has actually conditioned you to think that way. We have been trained to act entitled when it comes to career help. We were also told a college degree would get us a better job and if we just kept our head down and did what we were told we’d stay employed and keep getting annual raises. Well folks, that train has left the depot! These days, if you need help from an expert (i.e. surgeon, nutritionist, orthodontist, lawyer, and any other specialist you can think of), you pay for it. And the better they are, the more you pay. Career coaching works the same way. You need to pay for it – and the more personal the attention you want from top experts, the more you are going to pay. Solution: Sign up for Career Mania 2012 & Get Deals from the Best Career Experts in the Country! It’s time you invested in your career. Aren’t you worth it? Isn’t feeling better worth it?

If you saw our first video, you might have heard about the awkward situation one of our viewers, Diane submitted. She has recently worked with a co-worker on a group project. When it came time to present the project at a meeting, Diane let her co-worker present. While it went great, the co-worker proceed to take credit for nearly all of Diane's work. Frustrating to say the least!

Starting a family is one of the biggest milestones in a person's life. It's in those first few months when a parent can really bond with their newborn and make lifelong memories. However, for some new dads, it can be difficult to juggle being a new parent while remaining dedicated to their career.

Fortunately, some companies have generous paternity leave policies that give new dads the ability to take time off of work to stay home with their child.

There are LOTS of questions around resume dos and don'ts. There's so much advice out there that it can be overwhelming to try and figure out what's the correct answer.

During our weekly live Office Hours on YouTube, two of our coaches, Ariella Coombs and J.T. O'Donnell, answer questions live from viewers related to their job search, career success, on the job situations and more.

We complied a simple list of what we find to be the most common questions our coaches get about resumes. We hope you find this helpful.

Let's start with the basics...
