Most people have a favorite band, food, and sports team. Mine are Guster, citrus, and the Washington Nationals respectively. Being a bit of a career development nerd, I also have a favorite soft skill, and that is teachability. I love working with and for people who are quick to admit... Continue reading

Students go back to school this week which has me thinking about how I used to prepare for the first day of school and all the accompanying jitters. There was always something so magical about the first day of a school year. Anything that happened last year was gone, and... Continue reading

I'm hoping you heard great news on your interview! You've just reminded me that I need to share information soon on the blog about how to follow up after an interview. My fingers are crossed for you as well! Thanks for stopping by - I'm following you now as well! - Sara
If you've read my blog at all you know that I am not exactly shy about my love for the Washington Nationals. They haven't had the best season ever, but they are picking up steam late. I love these boys - and I love going to the ballpark. In fact,... Continue reading

Take a moment and remember back to your childhood years with me. Think about camping trips you took with scouts, family, or just a group of friends. Imagine you are sitting around a roaring camp fire huddled together with your friends listening to a riveting ghost story. If told well,... Continue reading

Confession - in an elevator my goal is to get as far away from my fellow riders as humanly possible, keep my head down, and avoid eye contact. Elevators are hot and awkward, and the last place in the world I would want to network. Maybe I’m a bad career... Continue reading

I’ve been quoted as saying “If I wear make-up to work everyone’s going to think I’m going on a job interview”. I’m a low maintenance girl, and make-up isn’t high on the priority list during busy mornings getting ready for work. Because of this, I was very taken aback when... Continue reading
