It’s the first Monday of 2017 – have you been thinking about doing some different job search activities for this new year?

Many of us have heard the phrase “jack of all trades”. That phrase describes a person that is skilled in many trades without necessarily having one specialty. The phrase, in my opinion, has a good connotation. Continue reading ‘Jack of Most Trades’

I love the month of March because on the first Friday in March every year, bosses and supervisors in the United States show their workers/staff how much they’re appreciated. Continue reading ‘Employee Appreciation Day’
