Family Business: Opportunities and Obstacles

2022-09-27T10:58:34-04:00Categories: Behind the Scenes, General News, Job Efficiency|Tags: , , , , , , , , |0 Comments

Research shows family businesses generate over 50% of the nation’s GDP and employ over 60% of the U.S. workforce, so in all likelihood, you or someone you know may be employed by a family business. On one hand, a family business offers an inclusive environment working toward a common goal. On the other hand, the combination of personal and professional life can be unpredictable. Before stepping in this direction, it is important to consider the pros and cons. […]

2022-09-21T14:21:23-04:00Categories: Behind the Scenes, General News, How To|Tags: , , , , , , , , |0 Comments

If the past few years have taught us anything it would have to be that life is ever-changing and situations can change at the drop of a hat. Benefits have shifted from being just part of an employment compensation package to a focal point of employment and a draw for top-tier talent. […]

67 Is the New 62

2022-09-07T08:31:33-04:00Categories: General News, I Am I Can|Tags: , , , , , |0 Comments

Picture this, you’re 60 years young, going through the motions at your 9-5, and some recent graduate walks in with a starting salary $5k below what you have worked 20+ years to receive. You’re unfulfilled with your work as you likely have it down to a science, and you have yet to feel challenged in quite some time. Now, if you were in your 30s, it would be evident that a career change would be the right move for you, but you only have a couple more years to stick it out until retirement, right? Wrong. Though you may have [...]

Are you preparing for retirement? Whether you’ve recently entered the workforce or are a seasoned vet, preparing for your retirement should be at the top of your “to-do” list, and if you fail to prepare, you should prepare to fail. The last place you want to find yourself is at the cusp of 50 years old, having not yet begun a retirement account of some sort. Luckily for you, there are a variety of options available at your fingertips when it comes to preparing for retirement. You will need to research your options and determine [...]

Why Are We Ghosting?

2022-08-02T13:42:09-04:00Categories: Acing the Interview, All About Recruiters, Behind the Scenes, General News|Tags: , , , , , , |0 Comments

Serious question, why are we ghosting? This unfortunate habit which surfaced through the abandonment of dating your newest Tinder interest has changed course in the business world and it’s coming in with a bang. People would rather cower to their disagreements than speak the truth and the worst part is that it comes from all directions. I am not just singling out candidates who are ghosting interviews or job offers, I am also shining a light on companies who are ghosting candidates post-interview with no reason as to why they do not want to move forward. The question is why [...]

Considering Relocation?

2022-05-18T15:26:19-04:00Categories: General News, Pandemic|Tags: , , , , , , , , |0 Comments

We can all vividly remember surrendering our in-office work life as the pandemic surged, though I bet none of us thought remote work would become a new reality. Over 50% of companies are now fully remote and that has prompted the relocation of their employees as a daily office visit is no longer necessary. Major cities like New York and Los Angeles registered their lowest annual growth in a decade. However, some employees found themselves in a pickle when their employer decided that they would return to in-office work, and they are no longer located within a reasonable commute. If [...]

Why You Shouldn’t No Call No Show

2022-05-13T11:03:50-04:00Categories: Acing the Interview, Behind the Scenes, General News|Tags: , , , , , , |0 Comments

Honestly one of the worst things you can do in your work life is a “No Call, No Show (NCNS).” This could apply to an interview, a phone call, or a scheduled shift, and it essentially means that you do not show up without notice or a reason given. This is not a good habit to get into so if you have found yourself committing this act, stop. It’s a slippery slope and like we’ve said before you never know where life will take you. You may think simply not showing up to the interview is no big deal and [...]

Are You Chronically Late?

2022-07-12T08:59:20-04:00Categories: General Job Search Advice, General News, Job Efficiency, Networking|Tags: , , , , , , |0 Comments

Being “fashionably late” is an excuse that people who are always late give to make themselves feel better, and it isn’t acceptable to your employer. Unfortunately snoozing your alarm 3 or 4 times and rushing out the door is an easy habit to adopt and a very hard one to break. We, humans, are creatures of habit, and we tend to lean toward the solution that gives us the most satisfaction at the moment even if it means difficulty later. It’s easy to think that extra 5-10 minutes will actually make a difference in the ease of getting out of [...]

Don’t Slack on Meeting Etiquette

2022-04-27T13:57:18-04:00Categories: Behind the Scenes, General News, How To|Tags: , , , , , |0 Comments

Studies show that in the United States, there are over 50 million meetings held each week. That totals about 11 million meetings per day and over 1 billion per year. With the amount of time we spend in meetings, it seemed fit to brush up on meeting etiquette. It can be easy to forget how to properly conduct yourself in meetings (especially if you’ve adopted a remote schedule). We’ve compiled a list of do’s and don’ts that apply whether you are attending a virtual or in-person meeting. […]

Are You Cheating Your Onboarding Process?

2022-04-07T12:58:04-04:00Categories: General News, Job Efficiency|Tags: , , , , , |1 Comment

Let’s be straight, the onboarding process does not end when the employee signs the new hire paperwork. It includes everything before and after that point, from the interview to the training process and it should be taken just as seriously for the employer as for the employee. Studies have shown that for a 100-person company with an average salary of $60,000, the turnover replacement cost could range from $750,000 to $3 million. That is not an amount to be taken lightly. Check out our suggestions for an effective onboarding process that will make for a successful future! […]
