If you’ve worked in IT for a while, you have most likely been involved in some project work. Whether it’s a software deployment or a hardware upgrade, there comes a time in a project where after all the planning the solution is deployed to the company for mainstream use. I actually enjoy working on these deployments! The one thing that these kind of projects have in common is that the deployment and implementation of these are usually done outside of business hours. This is done so it has minimal impact on the users. I’ve been involved in quite a few project deployments in the last few years, and I’ve come to find that I actually enjoy them.

Technically, there are hundreds of ways to sabotage [literally] a job search campaign, but for the purpose of this discussion, I will restrict myself to three common mistakes most job seekers make. Over the past few months, I have observed a steady (and measurable) increase in the number of candidates finding “meaningful” employment opportunities.

Though positive, the outlook for the economy is still volatile and everything that goes into a job search campaign must be perfected to the nth degree.Four Strategies For Writing A Powerful Letter That Persuades, Compels, And Positions
Writing the perfect cover letter that screams “call me” takes practice — a lot of practice. After having reviewed and written tens of thousands of resumes and cover letters, I can verify that for the right candidate a well-written resume and cover letter could open a world of opportunities. Unfortunately, many job seekers do not take this aspect of their job search campaign very seriously. Worse still, some choose to follow unreliable advice from well-meaning — but ill-informed — supporters and create career documents that damage the future of an otherwise promising career.How to Move Ahead at Work With Ease

I’ve contributed so much more than she has!” or “I just don’t know what else my boss wants from me, I did everything I could think of on this last project, and still, it wasn’t enough.” or “I’m afraid I’m going to be let go, I think I’ve done what they wanted, but I just don’t know.” Do you know what’s expected of you?

I stopped by a coffee shop recently and while I was waiting for my cup of coffee I couldn’t help but overhear a conversation that was happening at one of the small tables near me. One of the men there was complaining rather loudly about how someone else on his team had just gotten a promotion, even though he had been at the company much longer than the other person. He was pretty disgruntled and went on to list the reasons why he should have received the promotion. The list included, well, that he had been there longer, along with some things he didn’t like about the guy who got the job. I run into this quite a bit when I work with organizations that have never made a choice about whether they value tenure or performance more highly.
