Dear J.T. and CAREEREALISM Team,

Yesterday I received the best news one can receive, a job offer for a senior level position with great benefits, salary within my asking range, and a short walking distance from my apartment.

I can say this would not have happened if not armed with the knowledge acquired by reading your newsletter articles and watching your CAREEREALISM TV episodes. I particularly enjoy "Brand ME!," "Career School," and "Career Reality." It got me a job!

I haven't even subscribed to CareerHMO.com yet, which is something I will do soon since I see my career as something that is ongoing, and was able to learn so much more than an expensive professional writing service company I enlisted that had the primary focus of getting me a job instead of helping me build a career. CAREEREALISM taught me what kind of questions to ask and how to behave during interviews as well as prepare for them, helped me determine what kind of career personality I am so I may be able to relate to others better, negotiate a higher salary, etc. This is all very useful information anyone seeking meaningful employment that makes them happy should subscribe to.

I was very lucky to have found CAREEREALISM when I did.

- Y.K.

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.

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.
