21 ways to avoid job interview anxiety
U.S. News & World Report    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Career experts often offer helpful tips for reducing job interview anxiety. But you don't want to reduce job interview anxiety; you want to avoid it altogether. Before you say, "But that's impossible!" let's clarify: You don't actually have to eliminate the anxiety. You only have to avoid letting it show. Anxiety is a turn-off. In a job interview, you want to come across as confident, competent and ready to go to work. Anxiety detracts from the strong, positive impression you want to make. It's also contagious — your jitters can infect and distract your interviewer, making him less able to focus on you. The bottom line: It's OK to feel anxious. It's not OK to display it. More

How to handle post-recession job stress
Forbes    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The worst of the waves of layoffs may be over, but countless American workers who still have their jobs are unhappy at them, overloaded with increased responsibilities, short of colleagues to share the burden, and unsure where they can turn to look for something better. Few people got raises last year — many took pay cuts — and it's not looking like pay hikes will come anytime soon. "Everybody is as stressed as I've ever seen," reports Joan Kane, a Manhattan psychologist who has worked as a therapist for 23 years. "The stress level is off the charts." More

Joyce Richman: Do what you want, get what you deserve
News & Record    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
I'm sitting in on a corporate training session watching a speaker and thinking about how much I'd love a cup of coffee. Regrettably, the coffee dispenser is on a counter tucked behind the huge projection screen that the trainer is using. There's no way to get there without 50 people watching the process. I pass on the idea and shift my attention back to the PowerPoint presentation. BAM! I'm startled by the sound of a door slamming against the wall behind it and the loud clatter of high heels before I see a professionally dressed woman stride into the room, stop in front of the speaker, bump him aside, turn, flip the corner of the huge projector screen over her shoulder so she can pour herself a cup of coffee, then exit as she entered — like a high-stepping parade horse.

Marshall Brown: What? No business card?
The Washington Post    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Q: You told me to network. I go to networking events and everyone is passing out business cards. I am unemployed and don't have one. What should I do?
A: First of all, you are not unemployed. You are "between successes," and your full-time job right now is looking for your next opportunity. Having said that, there is no reason for you NOT to have a business card. Despite the fact that you might not have a company name, you still have contact information.
