This week, I’ll wander away a bit from higher ed-specific sites and concentrate on careers. Here are five links to sites and articles with great career advice and perspectives. Enjoy!
My Nine Careers: Lessons Learned Career coach Marty Nemko shares his meandering career path and some simple lessons he took away from them.
Going Above and Beyond: Distinguishing Yourself as a Job Seeker What can you learn about going the extra mile from buying a laptop at Staples.
Screw Your Career Path, Live Your Story by Jason Seiden is a thought-provoking piece that may help shift your thinking about careers.
The Ladders has a great article about how Volunteering can pay off in your job search.
and for some basic interview advice, slanted toward working in student affairs. . . here’s a post I wrote for the Student Affairs Collaborative Blog last April… “They Wouldn’t Listen to the Fact that I was a Genius: 20 Ways to Blow Your On-Campus Interview.”
If you have good articles or resources worth sharing, e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I may share in a future edition of Take 5.
Thanks for dropping by.
