Why Teens Should Start Networking In High School via Career Realism

High school networking

As a professional recruiter and career coach, I regularly have the opportunity to speak with recent college graduates referred to me by parents from my professional and personal networks.

Don't Compare Your Beginning to Someone Else's Middle via Lifehacker

When you’re jumping into a new project or endeavor, it’s natural to look to those who know what they’re doing in order to learn from them. That’s great, but as the blog Life Without Pants points out, it’s important to remember not to compare yourself to those who have been doing something for longer than you.

3 Questions to Ask Yourself When You Don't Know What You Want to Do via The Muse

I started college as a musical theater major, but by the end of my freshman year, I knew I wasn’t supposed to have a career on stage. I dabbled in psychology before finding my calling in marketing.

A friend of mine, on the other hand, started her career as a marketer. But after picking up running, she’s in school to become a physical therapist. Another friend has been a software engineer by education and profession, and he recently transitioned into data science.

Why Having More Time Being Alone Makes You A Greater Person via Lifehack

“The best thinking has been done in solitude.” – Thomas Edison

When was the last time you were alone?

Not alone by today’s standards (Facebook and Twitter within arms reach, friends constantly buzzing your phone), but truly by yourself, with no outside influences providing data or information to your brain. Can you think of that time? If you’re like most people, it might take you more than a few seconds. The speed of life at which the world lives today doesn’t leave much time to stop and smell the flowers, let alone leave time for yourself.

Noted: How Taking A 20-Minute Walk Every Day Transformed My Approach To Work via Fast Company

If you’re like most Americans, you suffer from the physical, emotional, and mental epidemic that the scientific community calls “sitting disease.”

But unlike many other illnesses that require a team of doctors, the cure is in our own hands–or feet, rather–and all we have to do is take a walk.

Op-Ed: America, say goodbye to the Era of Big Work via The Los Angeles Times

For much of the past century, the Era of Big Work — the 40-hour workweek and its employer-provided benefits — were the foundation of our economy. That was then. Now, independent work is the new normal.

Freelancers, independent contractors and temp workers are on their way to making up the majority of the U.S. labor force. They number 42 million, or one-third of all workers in the nation. That figure is expected to rise to 40% — some 60 million people — by the end of the decade.
