If you have a “5” in front of your age, our Working guy says you’re in trouble when it comes time to find a job.
An avalanche of data is starting to show that having a “1” or a “2” in front of your age might not be so great either.
What makes successful people, well, successful?
Certainly it’s a combination of lots of different habits, skills and approaches. But authors and career coaches have found in talking to high-achievers that the way they handle their weekends is one element.
Accepting a great career opportunity sometimes means workers have to leave a position they’ve had for only a short time.
Consider this example from someone who reads Brandon Smith’s blog about working and career issues:
A Toronto businessman has purchased the long-dormant Ramada Plaza tower in downtown Macon, his attorney said Wednesday.
The sale was at least two years in the making, and it almost fell apart several times before the deal was sealed this week.
It’s one of the questions our Working guy, Brandon Smith, gets most often: “I think my boss doesn’t like me. How can I tell?”
He says, bluntly, that’s because bosses are usually terrible communicators, and maybe slightly scared.
