Preparing for job interviews is obviously a critical stage in the hiring process. It's important to view the interview from the employer's perspective. Prior to the interview, you must anticipate all possible objections they could have in hiring you and develop the most effective interview strategies to alleviate the employer's apprehension. During the interview, pay close attention to the employer's questions because often their questions indicate possible objections (if it's a panel interview, you should also make note of who asked what questions). In the case where the employer can't ask specific questions due to government employment standards, you have the option of taking the initiative to address the employer's possible objections.
Here are the top 10 objections you face in getting hired:
1. Too young
- You don't have enough practical skills; you're too intellectual; you aren't hands-on savvy
- You'll require too much training time and $ to get up to speed
- You're not dep...
We all do it, we set goals, create actions to take, say we are going to do something but somewhere along the way we lose sight of the what inspired us, our commitment and we don't do it. We come up with endless reasons and excuses why, we stop doing what we said we would and then later when we are fed up we start all over again. Ha ha, how fun!
I'll admit it, I've been procrastinating myself posting this blog. I've had all kinds of excuses, I'm busy taking a coaching program for myself, don't have time, it'll take so long, I'm not sure what I should write about.. blah blah blah, like my partner said to me I've spent more time thinking and worrying about it then doing it! Now that is a waste of energy.
So, Why Do We Procrastinate?
Crazy thinking (I can’t do it, now’s not a good time, it’s too hard - any excuse we can come up with so we don't have to do what we said)
Overestimating time or lack of scheduling
Lacking inspiration, not keeping your bigger vision present
In today’s fast-paced world where a minute lost is a dollar spent it is becoming harder and harder for modern day Christians to separate their beliefs from their everyday actions and activities. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the workplace, where everything is subject to collective scrutiny.
Many practicing Christians in positions of authority or those whose roles require guiding and managing others are constantly realizing that it is much harder to actually “Practice what you Preach.” For those whose everyday activity involves the manipulation and fabrication of capital, this can be an even greater challenge. The term “greed is the route of all-evil” can be a bidirectional emotional conflict. It’s hard to be a Samaritan when all through the year your primary focus is on ensuring you attract the highest bonus.

What are the 2 major types of recruiters?
- Recruiter gets paid whether or not a candidate is matched to a position
- Note: Recruiter less likely to be interested in meeting you right away unless you're a perfect match for a current position they are filling
- Recruiter only gets paid if they complete a match and fill a position
- Note: Recruiter more likely to be interested in meeting you because they are driven to build a large candidate pool from which to match employer requirements
Why do companies hire recruiters?
- Workload constraints:
- HR department is too small to take on recruiting functions
- Hiring expertise:
- Lack competence to attract the right candidates (writing ads, using LinkedIn, screening resumes, interviewing)
- Time constraints:
- In-house hiring methods slower than recruiter methods
- Specialized positions:
- Job is unique
- Industry expertise:
- Lack in-depth knowledge of ind...
Making a transition to a new career can be very challenging. Believe me, I know from my career counseling practice that for many executives and professionals who decide to make a career change, it’s often not easy. But when they finally decide that a dead end, toxic or boring job is no longer tolerable, then they find the courage to dig deep and do what it takes to find a new job they love.
So, what are the big payoff’s for people who take the time to pause, figure out what makes them happy at work and who launch their careers in a new direction? From all the feedback and letters I get from career counseling clients who now live a life of passion and purpose, here are the top 10 reasons they love their new careers (in no particular order):
1. Meaningful work. They experience inner satisfaction and a strength that comes from making a difference. They are happy from the inside out.
2. Qualifications are on the cutting edge. They’re driven by an ongoing desire for new...
I don’t know if anyone has ever told you guys this, but getting a Ph.D. takes forever. I honestly thought that I would be strolling across that stage flanked by my grandkids, leaning on my walker before I ever finished the darn thing. It wasn’t too bad, because I’m one of those weirdos that loved graduate school. My undergraduate studies, however, were a different story.
I am always excited to see college students in my practice because I keenly remember what it was like to be one. Though I hit my stride in graduate school, I found the rush and confusion of my undergraduate program to be challenging. During my Master’s and Doctoral degrees, I studied psychotherapy or something related to it all day, every day. Life made sense. But, during those first four years, running from Underwater Basket Weaving to Spanish to Women’s Lit all in one day fried my brain. Fortunately, I learned to survive and thrive, managing both my classes and extracurricular activitie...
“One who fears failure limits his activities. Failure is only the opportunity to more intelligently begin again.” –Henry Ford
I have to admit something to you. I almost didn’t write a blog on this topic. Here’s the reason why: if you took me seriously on this idea in any area of your life it would put me right out of business. Finally, a tid bit that can be applied to anything you can imagine, because in its simplicity, it is revolutionary.
Over the years I have worked with a number of highly-accomplished clients. These folks are professional athletes, politicians, business owners and entertainers. You would recognize their names if I told them to you, but since I’m an ethical and law-abiding kind of therapist I won’t do that. Seeing as how I won’t spill those goods, I’ll just give you the important part. Would you like to know the difference between these folks and the rest of us mere mortals? They believe that failure is feedbac...

Are you a person who studies, does well with most assignments ...yet when it comes to taking tests you flub up and score poorly?
Has this been going on for a long time?....and now alot is "at stake" ...like entrance to your preferred high school, college or passing the bar? You can develop test-taking confidence in a few simple sessions.
Why Not Prove to Yourself that you can Move Past Fear and Master Your Mind and Emotions
When we are youngsters, test-taking starts in elementary school and gets increasingly important in middle and high school. In our teen years, test-taking is common and associated with moving forward in life. We take tests in order to be able to drive a car and gain entrance to college or university. Advancing in a particular career, requires doing well on mandatory tests. Whether a prospective lawyer who wants to pass the Bar or Financial Broker taking his or her complement of professional tests, all professions have standards and test-taking is the typical way a...
Are we doing what we are meant to? Do you ever wonder if you are in the job that you were placed on this earth to do? I think that we all have great abilities and certain strengths and we must put those to good use. I have found my calling in counselling. I know that this is where I was meant to be and I love my work. Every time I work with a client I take away so much and grow from the experience.
However, my route of getting here was not a straight path nor was it easy. I had a lot of ups and downs that challenged my beliefs and shook my confidence. I was constantly battling negative and conflicting bosses who made me feel like I wasn’t worth their time. To this day I am still bothered by their inability to lead and to help me grow.
I think part of why I am where I am today is because I am my own boss. I could no longer suffer under the hands of others and had to pull away. I am now in charge of my destiny and that suits me just fine. I can come and go as I please, which is a...
