Network like a Trick-or-Treater

Halloween is my favorite holiday; I’m not going to lie.  I have fond memories of dressing up in fabulous homemade costumes and going door-to-door trick or treating, the
goal to get as many goodies as possible.  Every kid had a mission, and together we strategized to hit up as many houses for the best candy before it was time to go home.  I’m beyond my trick or treating years but I have realized that nothing much has changed.

A Switch to Temporary

Posted by Blair Fleming on Jul 17, 2013 4:57:00 PM

Like many people in this economy I was unemployed in 2009 at the height of the recession.  As a new and inexperienced college graduate, I was unsure about how to go about finding a job, and simply applying to jobs online was getting me nowhere.  So, I decided to ask for some advice.  A friend who always seemed to be employed, said “have you ever worked a short term assignment?”  At the time, I had no idea what a “short term assignment” really was or why it would be a good idea.  To me, temporary work was a temporary fix!

Help! Hire Me: The Millennial Generation

Posted by Blair Fleming on May 14, 2013 2:00:00 PM

Millennials in this economy are finding it hard to land a job interview let alone a job!  As this growing population of educated tech savvy individuals (born between 1980 and 1995) come into the job market, they are finding that not only are there fewer jobs available, but that employers seem to becoming ever more demanding about what they are looking for in candidates.  “Employers all say they want at least one or more years of experience for a job that is supposed to be for someone right out of college?!” , says  I can say from personal experience that this is no joke!  After graduating in 2009 with a double major I looked around for an entry level position for over two years.  During those two years I worked as a barista and held contract roles to stay viable in the job market, and I am not the only one.
