While it's good to have regular friends, everyone needs a best friend. You know, that person you can go to whenever you need help, a confidence boost, or just a laugh. The same concept applies to the workplace. While it's great to have trusted colleagues, it's especially nice to have one person in particular to confide in --- a work buddy.
If you’re in the middle of a job search, you probably have lots of well-meaning family members and friends giving you advice on how to find a job as fast as you can. Unfortunately, these people could be giving you TERRIBLE job search advice without even realizing it. Do you ever hear people telling you to be “open to any opportunity” that comes along? Or do they advise you to “take anything that’s available”? This might surprise you, but these are actually the WORST things you can do for your career. Here’s why… Back in the day, employers were looking for hardworking people who could do everything. They wanted generalists. So, if you could do something, even if you weren’t the best at it and even if it didn’t relate to the job you wanted, you would put that thing on your resume. While this might have been sought after years ago, it’s not what employers want anymore. Employers are looking for specialists in their fields. They want to know that the people they hire know everything there is to know about the thing they were hired to do. Unfortunately, there are still lots of professionals out there who still brand themselves as “Jack- or Jills-of-all-trades.” They can do it all. They know everything. They’re generalists.

So, before you take Aunt Hilde’s (accidentally) terrible job search advice from 20 years ago, think about how job search is being done today. What are employers looking for NOW?

More importantly, when we were young, our friendships got created almost on their own. Now, we realize that we need to be proactive about it. We find that leaving our social lives to chance doesn’t work. We need to re-learn how to make friends. On top of all that, we need to have a social life that we can fit in our already-busy schedules.

Although it can come naturally for some, making new friends as an adult can be difficult for many. Have you ever wondered why some people are always surrounded by friends who care about them, help them, and support them, while others feel isolated and alone? Have you ever wondered why it seems so natural and effortless for them to be social? The difference is that they have friends that know each other. Instead of having individual friends, you should absolutely introduce people to each other and form groups. Even small groups of friends make a world of difference to your social life, here is why…
