by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Apr, 2014
LinkedIn is a great tool for professionals. It offers the opportunity to network with others in your field, and it can be a great tool for finding job leads—and even getting hired. All too often, I see people who simply copy their resume information directly into their LinkedIn profile.

by Louise Fletcher - Apr, 2014
So you’ve read lots of resume advice, and you know that your resume needs strong, results-focused bullet points. But try as you might, you don’t really know how to write those bullet points.

Negotiating an Executive Level Salary
by Lisa Rangel - Apr, 2014
You got your foot in the door of that executive level position you were eyeing, you nailed the interview, and you’ve been told that you’re at the top of the list of qualifying candidates. Congrats!

As a career coach, I get a ringside seat to great brands and so-so brands. But so do you - take your experience as a consumer and think about your favorite brands. What's their emotional appeal?
