In fact, I hired her and I used her for my own health care needs. Her name is Meg McGinn of Osprey Health.

I encounter clients every day who absolutely know when the time is right for them to make a career move. They are the folks who call me and sign right up for resume writing services. In today’s economic climate, changing jobs can be a scary proposition, so I admire those folks with the guts to go full speed ahead and plunge into finding a better way of life for themselves. But there are many others who stand still, paralyzed by fear but stuck in a job that does not make them happy.

MainLine Magazine: 10 Ways to Achieve Your Personal Best in 2017

Wasted Talent. Sadly, I see it every day in the business I’m in.

When I hear about how troubling the workplace has become, and specifically the toxic cultures and environments some people work in, I get knots in my stomach.

A Job Hunter’s Nightmare: When a Recruiter Crosses the Line

Can you imagine working with a recruiter on your seemingly confidential job search, and you find out your recruiter crossed the line?

Rising to the Top: Busting Job Search Myths at 64

When my boomer buddy, a global SVP, informed me that he landed a new job in less than 60 days after getting laid off from his company after 20 years, I shouted with joy. With over 3 million baby boomers currently unemployed, we all know how tough it is.

I asked him, “Do you realize that you just shattered your own myth about not being hireable because you are ‘over the hill’, have grey hair and are 64 years old?”

When Your Career Is in a Tailspin, Remember That Nothing Is in Stone

I get knots in my stomach when I hear about how twisted this job market is becoming. Frankly, the stories are never ending. From nurses at Penn who are completely skilled in their profession but have new educational mandates to complete by a certain date (or else!), to recent college graduates who are overwrought with confusion about what to do next, to baby boomers who are pressured to take severance packages before the ax hits, it’s no wonder that we’re all losing it.
