    • Keeping Your Work and Personal Lives Separate

      You want to be the best employee you can be. Professional, organized, and enthusiastic. But you also want to be you with your own opinions and personal life. Reconciling these two worlds is difficult. How many email accounts do you need? What about social media? Do you add all of your work colleagues on Facebook? Do you really need a LinkedIn? We’re here to answer all your question. Let’s get started. Keep Multiple Email Accounts You should have one professional email that consists of some variation of your first and last name (for example, johnsmith@gmail.com or john1smith@gmail.com). Use this email for applying to jobs, networking, and any business cards you might have. You don’t want to be contacting potential employers with coolguytom42@yahoo.com or sillygaltonya39@att.net. However, there’s nothing wrong with using fun, less professional emails for other types of websites, like your favorite online stores or silly newsletters.

    • What to Do When an Entry-Level Job Requires Two to Three Years of Experience

      Should You Still Apply? You worked hard in college, and now you’re looking for a great job. But everything you apply for lists two to three years of “real world” experience. This is a problem grads across the nation are dealing with. Some companies ask for a four-year degree and three years of experience for an entry-level, which can seem impossible. However, if you dig into your college accomplishments, you can find exactly what they’re looking for. Here are a few things to focus on in your resume. Study Abroad If you ever studied abroad, be sure to put that on your resume! Employers are always looking for differentiators when they look at resumes and spending a semester or two in England or Beijing is sure to impress. Study abroad shows that you’re willing to learn, can adapt, and have a wealth of knowledge at your fingertips. Extracurriculars Did you act as a treasurer for your fraternity or sorority?

    • Are You Being Taken Advantage of in an Unpaid Internship?

      If so, it’s time to act. It’s hard to believe it’s back-to-school season already. Summer break has come to an end as college students across the country move back to their dorms or apartments. Many of these students will take up an unpaid internship during their spare time. These positions can be a great way to get on-the-job training and experience. However, what if you start your unpaid internship and notice that you’re not learning anything? You aren’t given much (if any) direction, and the only time your manager asks for your help is when he needs furniture moved or a window washed. Is this normal, or are you being taken advantage of? Look for these warning signs. Your Manager Isn’t Interested in Changing You sit down with your manager and make your concerns known. You tell them you don’t feel comfortable with tasks that aren’t related to your desired profession, as you aren’t learning anything useful. Perhaps your manager rolls their eyes, and says they’ll find you other work. …
