By Becky Houdesheldt

I’ve been with the same company for 9 and ½ years and am on my 4th position. In that time I’ve applied for lots of positions within the company, not to mention the myriad of positions I submitted for prior to my career here. I’ve nailed some job interviews and I’ve bombed twice as many. I’ve learned that there are definite things you should and should not do. Learn from my many mistakes.

Present your best physical self. Don’t go in tired, or hungover. Don’t go in looking like you rolled out of bed, especially if that is exactly what happened. Take a shower. Style that hair. Wear deodorant and brush your teeth. This sounds like basic information, but trust me. It warrants being said, and it’s first for a reason. First impressions are a real thing. Continue reading

Having a goal-oriented mindset is both a blessing and a curse. Goals keep you centered and focused. They give you a purpose in life. A life without purpose leaves people sailing through the wind, trusting the wind to guide them on the right path. Truly ambitious individuals, however, have to work their asses off to achieve their goals. If they aren’t careful, their lives become consumed by work. As Rihanna’s new hit song (that very few people understand) says, “Work, work, work!” Continue reading

By Eliza David

Behind every hustle bunny – at least in the infancy of said hustle – is a 9-to-5 gig. Before one can become their own boss, she more than likely has a boss of her own. It’s a fact of life, especially if you discover your passion after incurring a few financial obligations (like a couple of kids, a fixed mortgage, and a copious amount of student loans – basically, ME!)
