Career Life: Links and Love

April 30, 2012

I put on my hiring manager hat over at the Carnival of Personal Finance site and break down some of the less savory ways job applicants torpedo the job hunt.

Paranoid Asteroid sat on the interviewing panel for her coworker’s replacement and noted some of the same things. One of her examples that I didn’t note:

My “favorite” applicant so far has been the one who emailed D, saying, “I don’t know much about [our company, our business, and our project], but I figured I’d throw my hat into the ring.”

That’s another thing I found incredibly annoying from the perspective of having to sift through multiple resumes and applicants who really aren’t serious about the job. And those who are internally thinking that but don’t show it until they hit the interviewing room and waste all that time.

Thanks to Savvy Working Gal for a lovely bird’s eye view and breakdown of my recent promotion and the things I did to achieve it in How to Get a Promotion?  She includes some great links for further reading.

Janelle’s (@elleandish) home was featured at the EveryGirl. I loved this post focused on her decisions to buy her home, her career building and financial ability/stability that she learned and practiced to make the decision to build a beautiful home on a budget.

It’s not only gorgeous and bright, this is a great perspective on some of the reasons we save and budget: for a tangibly comfortable life within reason.

eemusings asks what your job means, and suggests how to get your mojo back if you’ve felt off your game lately.  No kidding, I’ve had more of those then not but frankly, I’ve just done a halfway decent job of hiding it except from the person I needed support from. That person just happened to see through my facade really easily.
