It is December of 2013 and after 25+ years in the staffing business, I still wonder– “How did I do it last year?” No, I am not ready to retire as many of you have asked. The entrepreneur in me wants to create and to do more.
Times have changed, society has changed and the job market is always changing. I have to say that we have seen more job openings and more clients seeking very specific candidates with requests for experience in various software’s, communication skills, and most of all a confidence in themselves.
Because hiring managers are evaluating the applicant well beyond their resume, it’s time to reassess and ask –”What is working for you and what is not?”
Let’s talk about You! In today’s job market, it’s important to know what you like, dislike and what you’re passionate about. Joy is found in knowing and living what makes you happy each day and what gives you the feeling of joy. If every day you wake up and trudge to your office and dislike the people that you work with and or your boss, it is time to prepare for change and that all begins with assessment.
As a gift to each of you, I’d like to invite you to begin with a complimentary character evaluation to establish a baseline of precisely where your strengths are. This report will help focus your efforts in the areas that give you a high success rate to build your career upon the attributes that make you invaluable to your employer.

I believe that as life changes – kids grow up, parents age, work downsizes, technology evolves quickly, and friends move away; we have to be intentional about our actions. Life is a constant set of changes and we are never given a blueprint for how to live our lives to the fullest.
Through these blog posts, I am hoping to give you a blueprint for how not only to survive but to thrive in these changing times. Lots of exciting things ahead so invest 15 minutes with the character strength assessment and start thinking about what gives you joy.
Happy Holidays and get ready for a Great 2014!
