Tim Tonella's curator insight, November 17, 1:23 PM

Although I usually write about job search advice for adults, this interesting posting from a former Harvard admissions interviewer really hit home.  With informal stats showing half of recent college grads are unemployed (and even more living in their parents’ proverbial “basement”), perhaps the quickest way to a better personal income statement is simply helping your millennial son or daughter move out, move up, and move off the family payroll!  The four pillars noted may seem obvious, but devil’s always in the details . . . or, as we like to say, in the execution.  Money management has always been an under-served focus for young people, but a strongly run bottom-line allows more flexibility for which job a person can accept based on top-line income.  Likewise, time management – another skill often not specifically taught in classrooms – is critical to anyone’s success.   It’s been said that the ONLY real limited resource any of us have is, indeed, TIME.  Finally, the article’s emphasis on developing “conflict resolution” skills is literally at the heart of personal relationship building, employee retention, and future growth in any vocation.  Just turn on the nightly news this week, and you will find college students struggling to find a vehicle for managing their own disappointment over events such as the national election.  While some are protesting in the streets, others are attending emotional support groups, joining crying rooms, or receiving pick-me-up care bears. Regardless of where you come down on these issues, one fact is clear – it’s important to develop a “mentality” for handling situations that may not go your way.  The reality of the working world is that we don’t always get that coveted raise or win over the job interviewer. Sometimes there is inherited bias, while other times we just didn’t cut muster as well as more qualified candidates or competitors.  Getting back on that horse – with a new game plan, a positive attitude, and without pushing blame onto others – may be the quickest route to independence and a bright future!

Daniel Watson's curator insight, September 8, 6:41 PM

 

If you have set up a blog for your business, either on your website or as a stand-alone endeavour, you need to feed the beast with regular blogs. This can be easier said than done, especially after the initial enthusiasm has waned, and ideas for posts are harder and harder to find. Advice from successful bloggers can be most useful if you have hit such hurdles, and this article provides great pointers on how to maintain a regular schedule of blog posts.

Brett.Ashley.Crawford's curator insight, September 9, 9:08 AM
All true.  Writing is hard but writing is essential for content generation.  Writing can take many forms (video, audio, etc.) but it is a mental pursuit to find the structure and meaning you intend to convey.
