1. Unconventional Career Advice -

Conventional wisdom seems to indicate that the steps to finding a new job are writing a resume, and then applying to job postings online.

Months after trying this method, jobseekers feel frustrated and confused.

NEW YORK (AP) – A hot market for initial public offerings may soon face a cooler reception from investors.

IPOs are having their best start to a year since 2000. Eighty-nine companies have raised $19 billion through sales of new stock so far in 2014. But demand for more offerings depends largely on the health of the broader market, and after last week's sell-off, the clamor from buyers may quiet down.

5. The Grey Ceiling: Beating Ageism -

The unfortunate truth of today’s job searching climate is that applying for jobs is competitive – very competitive. Employers can be picky about who they hire and how much they’re willing to pay.

7. Cold Calling Gets Bad Rap -

Cold calling gets a bad rap. Sales reps dread it, due to the anxiety and rejection that too often accompany it. In reality, the make-or-break moment in most cold calls is just the initial conversation starter – that first 10-20 seconds from your first word to the point at which the prospect gives you permission to continue talking. If you can make it past that all-important hurdle, it’s all downhill from there.

13. Cleaning Off the Cobwebs -

When new jobseekers start their search for the perfect opportunity, they’re often met with one of two concerns.

25. Reports of Email’s Death Greatly Exaggerated -

The first in a two-part series. While email marketing may have lost a bit of luster given the instant gratification of social media, it’s alive and well and is one of several digital marketing channels businesses are spending significantly more on in 2014. Why? Because compared to social media marketing, email marketing is less time intensive and easier to measure, test and optimize.

For the past couple of years, more and more businesses have been communicating with their audiences through Instagram.

By definition, Instagram is an online photo-sharing and social networking service that enables its users to take pictures and videos, apply digital filters to them and share them on a variety of social networking services. I applaud the creators of Instagram for taking everyone’s favorite social media feature – photos – and using it as the core of the platform.

31. Networking With No Fear -

Last week, as I pulled toward my parking space at home, the adorable 3-year-old boy who lives next door ran up to my car. “I haven’t seen you in a while!” he exclaimed in the most excited voice I’d heard all week. “How have you been?” I rolled down my window and chatted with him until his grandmother quickly rushed over to sweep him up.

36. Uphill Struggles -

I read in the paper about some folks who’ve done well with weight loss and fitness resolutions. They attribute their success to posting goals, activities and results on Facebook. “Got up at 4, started running at 4:30, did three miles. Tomorrow, five.” That kind of thing.

CEO-level sales calls are to salespeople like marathons are to runners. Neither is for the faint of heart, but with risk comes reward.

Starting at the top certainly has its benefits, as CEOs are the ultimate decision-makers. But you’ve got to be sure what you’re selling fulfills a need likely on a CEO’s radar versus a product someone down the line would normally handle. These are not prospects with which you can afford to burn a bridge, and wasting their time is a fast path to doing so.

The name we go by with our friends and family can be a very personal thing.

We have an emotional tie to the names we choose to go by. It’s such a strong tie that, in fact, it can often cause internal conflict when we attempt to adjust it. Our name is our identity and part of our personal brand.

60. Your Biggest Competitor is Indecision -
