Degrees — the subject of sleepless nights, eternal loan repayments, and much debate. The theory tells many school leavers that a degree is essential, a way to increase your earning potential and get you one step closer to that elusive job you’ve been dreaming of.
But does the reality match up? After all, the media drowns us in bad news.

The Will to Succeed — Smart Job Searching

Being unemployed is a sickening state, causing feelings of worthlessness and depression. Don’t be tempted to blindly apply for all the jobs going in and around your area – not only is this counterproductive and exhausting, but your letters will have a vibe of desperation that recruitment agents will pick up on almost instinctively. Rather, fight down your desperation to be back in work and pick and choose the jobs you apply for, going only for jobs that you feel you’d enjoy and writing your application with enthusiasm and zest.

The Three Components of An Effective Branded Resume

The most effective resume is a branding document showcases a job seeker’s previous experience in a way where a prospective employer can see how the job seeker’s expertise can work within their organization. When this happens, the prospective employer sees how the job seeker’s experience can help their organization achieve results and will call the job seeker in for an interview.  A traditional resume, that only houses job duties, does not outline achievements and is visually boring cannot stand up to a well-branded resume.
There are three things that differentiate a …

Read Keith Ferrazzi’s “Never Eat Alone” and Network Like a Politician

A fellow salesman recommended Keith Ferrazzi’s Never Eat Alone: And Other Secrets to Success, One Relationship at a Time to me several years back.  We both attended a lead sharing group and he couldn’t help but recommend it to the rest of us.
Ferrazzi vividly describes how his father enabled him to break with his blue collar background by networking throughout his community. It led to Ferrazzi:

Eat, Pray, Love Book’s a Real Spiritual Boost

My daughter gave me a copy of “Eat, Pray, Love” and it was a book that gave me some unexpected spiritual insight.   And it was a good addition to a few others I’ve reviewed to help explore our spiritual side.  I’ve read and reviewed “Silence on Fire” (follow this link for my review). I also wrote reviews for Eckhart Tolle’s “The Power of Now” and “A New Earth“. These three books work at explaining and enlightening me about the spiritual. I recommend them, but cannot deny these aren’t the easiest …

The Cathedral of Cologne Was the Only Thing Standing, How About You

I make a habit of attending noon Mass near the place where I work.  It’s only a few blocks down and it gives me a chance to get away from what is typically a busy and stressful day.  It occassionally also gives me a chance to attend confession.
Before Fr. Eddy even saw me coming around the separator for a face to face confession, he started aloud with his prayers. Then he stopped abruptly, “Jorge, how are you? How are you and your family?” He wore his usual smile and, as always, slowly …

Careers for the Non-Traditional Job Seeker
Some say that people who enjoy their jobs never have to work a day in their lives. Although the economy seems to be recovering and jobs openings are much more available than they have been in the past few years, most people tend to take what they can to pay the bills. Uninspired, they end up settling and resenting their job.
If you always considered yourself a non-traditionalist job-seeker, a boring, 9-5 desk job is probably at the bottom of your open positions list. If creativity, …

Photography is certainly an interesting artistic field. It has the best of both worlds – a little bit of technical knowledge, working with numbers and fractions and having the eye and the mindset of the bohemian artist. Nevertheless, just as with any other artistic venture, it takes time and a lot of effort to become noticed, and a lot of time and effort to make money out of it.
This can be a real downturn as the equipment is quite expensive, not to mention the fact that it’s a vicious circle …

There was a time, back at the dawn of the Industrial Age, when machines and factory equipment were behemoth in size and bulky to operate. They often took up huge chunks of a room or large space on a warehouse floor, and if a machine broke down it could take hours, if not days, to find out where the piece of equipment was that made the entire unit stop operating.
Now, in an era where a robot arm can position a key piece of equipment on a machine, that past era …
