Dear Donna

I hope this note finds you well. It may not feel like it here in the Northeast, but we are only a couple of weeks away from the start of Spring.  Who can describe this seasonal transition better than good ol' Dickens? "It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade."  Yep, that's about sums it up.

 For many of us, Spring brings to mind new beginnings and a sense of renewal.  After the Winter hibernation, it is time to reboot and turn our attention to the commitments we may have put off.  When it's dark at 4PM and you contemplate putting on ice skates just to maneuver around outside, it's completely understandable that your focus might shift to staying warm and just getting through your days.  But brighter days (and hopefully warmer days) are here and we invite you to check out our new programs, products and features to help you identify and access your career goals.  

Are you ready to commit to the process?  If you have had more stops and starts than you can count, or wonder why you keep hitting the same road blocks, utilize the help and resources that are here.  It's almost Spring so why not nurture the garden of YOU?

Five Key Things You Should Be Doing In Your Job Search, But Probably Aren't

Last week,  I gave an information packed webinar that really hit home for many of the participants.  I see so many people on auto-pilot with their job search, that they don't realize what's missing. I came up with these 5 things after noticing the patterns with so many clients.  We hope you'll take advantage of the recording (click on the word to visit the link). At the end of the recording, I also talk about my upcoming program mentioned below. 

Look out for our upcoming Advanced LinkedIn Webinar to be announced soon. We are responding to the need of so many of our clients where LInkedIn continues to be a challenge.  

Also, do you cringe when I, or other career professionals you read and listen to, mention the word "Self-promotion?"  Check out our latest blog post about one of the biggest barriers that keeps many people stuck in their job search and careers, The Art of Self-Promotion.  Be sure to take our quiz too.
