Comment on Company Culture Is Important To Hiring Managers by Veronika

I’ve never seen a person who was eager to get a job in the company and would be unable to adapt to the corporate culture. The ability to be flexible is in human nature. So I think that almost everyone is able to integrate into the corporate culture, if he/she has a strong motivation and thus the importance of matching the candidate to the corporate culture is highly exaggerated.

3 Things Bad Career Coaches Don’t Want You To Know 3 Things Bad Career Coaches Don’t Want You To Know

The career coaching industry is like any professional industry: There are the good, the bad, and the ugly. And that last group gives us all a bad name!
This past year, I’ve heard far too many stories from desperate job seekers who were scammed by the underbelly of career coaching. The worst stories usually involved the job seeker spending thousands on services that were supposed to get them interviews for high-paying jobs – but nothing materialized. Please, if you are considering investing in some help in your
job search

Ask These Questions BEFORE You Buy!

International Relations In New York City International Relations In New York City

Home to Broadway, Wall Street, a strong economy, and an impressive population to boot, New York City is the place where everything happens. Due to the city’s size as well as its cultural and economic influence, it’s not surprising that those with qualifications in
International Relations

How To Protect Your Online Reputation How To Protect Your Online Reputation

Many people do not consider their
online reputation
to be important. This is also true of small business owners. However, just
a few bad reviews online could result in lost business
when people search for a company on the Internet. Since we now live in the age of Yelp, Facebook, Twitter, and many user-generated websites, it’s more important than ever for a business to protect its online reputation.
Google Your Business
One of the easiest ways for a small business to keep tabs on their online reputation is to Google the company at least once a day. By doing this, the owner of the business can monitor what other people are saying about the business. A business owner can also set up Google alerts to let them know when their company has been mentioned online.

Why Feedback Will Help Your Professional Development Why Feedback Will Help Your Professional Development

Feedback, in the world of business, is the breakfast of champions. Feedback “feeds” us – it’s at the top of the food pyramid for learning and
professional development
How often do you ASK for feedback?
Feedback can be humbling, it can be eye-opening, and it can bring awareness to us of things that we’re simply “blind” to… but if we don’t ask for it, we usually don’t receive it - particularly the constructive form.
Many or most people will give us positive feedback, but very few will give us honest, candid feedback focused on how we can improve or how we can get better; things we SHOULD change or do differently.
Make ASKING for feedback a habit. Seek feedback from others:

Baby Boomers Unprepared For The Costs Of Long Term Care Coverage Baby Boomers Unprepared For The Costs Of Long Term Care Coverage

Does your company offer a group
long-term care coverage
policy? If not, you may want to consider purchasing LTC insurance on your own. It has been determined that baby boomers are vastly unprepared for the cost of long-term care coverage. This is due in part to the various planning aspects and retirement cost aspects.
For the most part, baby boomers were not prepared for any type of long-term care. Many did not feel the need in creating a savings account for long-term care or for end-of-life care coverage.
In fact, many of the baby boomer generation population feel that Social Security and other aspects would take care of themselves and, therefore, the cost of long-term care coverage would not be a issue. However, in recent years, the baby boomers have found that they are vastly unprepare

Top 10 Questions NOT To Ask Yourself In A Job Search Top 10 Questions NOT To Ask Yourself In A Job Search

I’m about to say something radical:
If you are searching for a new job, the number one most dangerous thing you can do is ask yourself questions about your
job search
“What do you mean?” you may ask. “Are you crazy? All the job search guides tell me to answer questions like what my goals are and what my ideal job is. If I don’t ask myself questions, how will I get answers?”
The problem with asking yourself questions is it’s really difficult to have a conversation with yourself. Asking yourself questions will get you only the answers you can generate yourself. Those answers are necessarily limited.
Your conversation might sound something like this: “What do I want to do next? Oh, I don’t really want to think about that. I’m confused. The economy sucks. Maybe I’ll never get a job again. I th
