Career boot camp: 5 steps to become a better presenter
Forbes
Understand your audience: I once sat in the audience where a presenter was obviously delivering a "canned" presentation he had previously used. How did I know? He was giving a "retail sales 101" speech to an audience of highly skilled and experienced medical equipment sales professionals.

How to play the job-hunting game to win
LinkedIn
It's hard to win a game when the rules are made up after the winner is chosen. In hiring this is pretty much the state of affairs. While there are some written rules, no one really follows them.

Advice on how to be good at business in the real world
The Scribe
Three letters symbolize one of the most powerful terms in all of business: CEO. For some business majors, it's the ultimate dream. Those letters symbolize more than a title.

The future of jobs in Canada
Maclean's
The country is in dire need of engineers, health workers and skilled tradespeople. Yet tens of thousands of students continue to pursue degrees in the arts and humanities. The result is an unemployment rate that refuses to fall below seven per cent (about 13.5 per cent among youth), while employers increasingly complain about vacant jobs that promise good wages — particularly in Western Canada, where the oil, gas and mining industries are booming.
