I only really applied these tips later on in life, and I potentially could have had an even greater job now. Don’t get me wrong, I love my job, but we never know what could have been. (more…)

Help Your Gen-Y Traits Stand Out Among Job Seekers

The things that matter to today’s graduates when it comes to finding workplace happiness are a bit different than that of generations past. In fact, when comparing Gen-X (born during the mid 1960s through the late 1970s) to Gen-Y (born early 80s to early 2000s), there are a number of factors that make them very distinct kinds of employees.

While Generation X is known for its entrepreneurial nature, confidence, and self-motivation, Generation Y is more technologically savvy, can multitask with ease, and isn’t afraid to take risks. As a member of Gen-Y, you’ll want to learn how to play up those attributes to employers so that they are perceived as strengths. For instance, it’s typical for more recent graduates to prefer a workplace that provides staff members with a lot of feedback, has team-building exercises, and gives recognition for a job well done.

We’ve all heard about the importance of being a team player, but what does that really mean in the workplace?

To really understand what being a team player means, you must first understand the nature of teams in the workplace. Generally speaking, a team is a group of about three to 12 people who work together toward a specific long- or short-term goal — like organizing a holiday party, overseeing a software upgrade, or handling an organization’s customer complaints. In some cases, it’s fairly easy to adjust to working in a team environment because it’s made up of people within a department who already have a history together. Other times, teams are interdepartmental, which can make them a bit more challenging. (more…)
