SALARY NEGOTIATION 101

By |2018-10-16T11:45:59+00:00October 11th, 2018|Categories: WORK + LIFE|

It can be one of the most nerve-wracking situations you ever encounter and a lot of students are in the dark on how to handle some of the basics. How much should I ask for? What happens if they don’t like what I say? What’s even considered normal? These are all valid concerns. While salary negotiation [...]

ATTITUDE MATTERS

By |2018-10-16T11:46:04+00:00October 10th, 2018|Categories: WORK + LIFE|

“If seeing others succeed, doesn’t make you happy…You’re doing life wrong.” I came across this quote several months ago and wrote it down because it felt significant. It’s easy to fall down the rabbit hole of feeling inadequate. You either thought that you’d be farther along by now in your career, you don’t understand the lecture [...]

ANOTHER NETWORKING EVENT? MAKE IT COUNT!

You’ve heard the term and you have grown accustomed to hearing it whenever someone is discussing their career—networking.  Everyone is saying you need it and you decide after turning down those morning or evening events to meet up with other professionals for a month you are going to see what all the fuss is about.  Now [...]

TRANSLATE THAT CURRENT JOB INTO A CAREER

The climate in higher education is continuously changing and the majority of students are now working part- or full-time jobs to help pay for school and living expenses.  If you are eager to look beyond these positions into the future—graduating with that degree, it can be difficult to stay committed to high-quality work at that company.  [...]

IF YOU DO SOMETHING, SOMETHING WILL HAPPEN

By |2018-10-10T10:20:27+00:00October 10th, 2018|Categories: WORK + LIFE|

Recently I had the chance to watch a TEDx event that discussed that exact phrase and how it can change one’s perception on pursuing a career. Each student and alumni’s job search is different and my advice for their approach will vary depending on their situation, experience, and goals. While the idea of finding and landing [...]

LET’S INTERN!

Early October marked the end of 8-week courses or the mid-mark for 16-week courses — either way, you probably enjoyed a lavish getaway during Fall Break.  No? Okay, maybe you just enjoyed a short break from school to regroup and prepare for classes to rev back up.  If you are a Senior, you might have graduation on your mind [...]

MAXIMIZE THAT WINTER BREAK OF YOURS

By |2018-10-10T10:11:15+00:00October 10th, 2018|Categories: WORK + LIFE|

Finals week is winding down and Winter Break is within reach -cheers! It’s about that time of year in Missouri where you need five layers to leave the house and hot coffee is a must in the morning (if it’s not already a year-round necessity). Kudos to those reading from Arizona and California, I hope you [...]

Companies are pouring money, additional resources, and their time to create a culture within their organization that is sought after by outside applicants and appreciated by those internal – with good reason. These same organizations are realizing that the need to evolve with its new workforce is a must. There is a strong correlation between a [...]

TED TALKS: YOU’VE HEARD OF THEM BUT HAVE YOU HEARD THEM?

By |2018-10-09T16:13:43+00:00October 9th, 2018|Categories: WORK + LIFE|

There are many people in the world that follow podcasts quite faithfully – they are great for a subway ride, background noise at work, and some provide powerful messages for professionals. I’ll be honest, I’m not an avid follower of any podcasts but I love the concept of sharing ideas without location being a barrier. Whether these [...]
