  • How to Court a New Career"Recruiters see hundreds of applications, so stand out from the crowd and show your best assets from the off. Relevant sector experience is crucial, but it doesn't hurt to show a little personality."

  • Replace Your Bad Leadership Habits"Instead of trying to keep all the interesting knowledge to yourself, leaders should start giving away as much as possible to their employees while seeking out new information."

  • 5 Ways to Become More Self-Aware"In the end, we all want self-awareness. Without it, one can never fully lead effectively. It’s only with self-awareness that one can journey closer to a state of 'self-congruence' — in which what we say, think, and feel are consistent."

  • 5 Pickup Lines for job Seekers"You can acknowledge a company’s reputation as a leader in its field, its corporate philanthropy, the well-known quality or performance of its marquee products, or anything else that is distinctive about the employer."

  • What Hiring Managers Want to Know About You"There is always some context that you're being hired into, and it's in the hiring manager's best interest to make sure you will be a good fit and can hit the ground running."
