    Control Your Environment

    By Dec 20,2014

    Have you ever known someone whose life seems to go wrong at every turn? I have known several people like this. Here are some examples of things that have gone wrong for them: They sign up for a course in school, forget they are enrolled, and get an F in the class–crushing their chances of getting into a good graduate school. They constantly have strange health problems. People around them seem to constantly be dying or having accidents for no apparent reason. They are robbed and beaten up, even in good neighborhoods.

    How to Choose a Recruiter Based on Recruiting Style

    By Dec 18,2014

    Every recruiter’s individual style has certain merits. However, there are recruiters who are truly exceptional at what they do. Choosing an exceptional recruiter is even more important in a bad market because the methods he or she uses determines if a candidate will find employment.

    Marketing Yourself–Who, What, and How

    By Dec 08,2014

    If You Want to Earn More, You Need to Be Worth More

    By Dec 16,2014

    Your financial requirements and what you would like to earn have nothing to do with what you are worth in the market.
