There is not one single solitary thing wrong with you. There isn’t. Don’t feel that way? Wondering why you aren’t getting hired? Or even a measly interview? It’s your marketing of you. Period. End of story. No. Really. You don’t need to change your hair style or dye it. Don’t worry about the lighting in your Zoom interview. Focus on the major ingre…
 
Go easy on yourself. You’re a WIP. I’m a WIP. That’s work in progress. You are perpetually in a state of change. Most people don’t realize this. They live their lives every single moment as if they’re complete. You are an ever-evolving person. Let’s just hope you’re E-volving and not going in the other direction. It IS possible to do that. Actually…
 
Have you ever taken a job and wondered what they hey???? The employer lied to me in the interview! This company is so not congenial, autonomous, collaborative. There is no work/life balance and the deadlines are horrific. What gives? I’ll tell you what gives. You didn’t ask very good questions. Or, you didn’t ask your questions the right way. It is…
 
We’re heading into the end of the year, which means your employer, hopefully, is considering giving you a pay raise or a promotion or both. Yeah! Ever wondered whether you should negotiate your raise? Let’s not keep you in suspense to which I’ll ask, “Why would you ever not negotiate it?” Getting paid too much are we? LOL. If that’s you, skip today…
 
I KNOW job searching is tough. I don’t just teach it, I’ve done it. I live it with so many of you I feel as if I’m going through it with you. I thought it was about time I turned the tables and shared with you exactly how I found my last corporate job. I’m even gonna throw in some bonus pieces about what I did to change my role right after I starte…
 
Lots of people changing jobs these past few years. Amiright? But, what about if you’re a beloved, faithful employee? You know the kind. The ones getting dumped on with extra work when everyone heads for the exits? Take Catherine for example. She started a new job in March and her direct supervisor quit in June. She inherited her boss’s responsibili…
 
Right now, it’s hiring silly season for employers and they’re interviewing job candidates like crazy. Don’t believe any career coach who tells you to slow down your search. Everyone is SO NOT out on holiday. Companies are panicking because they’re looking at their 2023 budgets and wondering where on Earth they’re gonna get all the great new employe…
 
Is your network helping you? They want to. More than you know. They just need a little help from you. It’s true. I’ve talked long and hard about this throughout the years. Put oh so many videos and podcasts out there on the Internet-z about networking. Let’s see… I’ve talked about how to network when you’re job searching, turning applications into …
 
Tell me…is there anything more difficult than taking your “entire” life, your purpose, and your mission and trying to share it…quickly? So someone can remember it? Challenge Alert: How quickly can you introduce yourself? Speed matters. Impact matters. And, you need to be memorable! What if I promised you a great way to introduce yourself at an inte…
 
Many want it. The good life. The few. They want the great life. The rest. What’s left. You guessed it. They pursue heights so high that most people dismiss them as unattainable. Whichever group you’re in, I know you’ll eventually pursue some personal Mount Everest. You know the one I’m talking about. The one that, somewhere along the climb, makes y…

You might have all day to work your job search or only an hour in the evening. Either way, I’d like to help you get more out of your time and effort. A few weeks ago, one…
 
I have this expression whenever I undertake something new. Mind you, this is something I say to myself AND I only say it after I’m certain of two things. First, I’m getting great instruction from someone who actually knows what they’re doing. (You don’t always find the right coach on your first attempt. Unless you found me on your first attempt. Th…
 
Job searching is hard, like, really hard. It’s even hard in the best of times, which we have now seasonally entered. November through February. That’s right. Start licking your chops. It’s officially open season on all things finding-your-dream-job related. Where I live the weather stinks this time of year, but finding that sweet job in never easie…
 
I have a saying. It’s one of my Today’s Lines to Live By®, which you can catch daily on my Instagram. “Short-timers focus on wins. Long-timers focus on plans.” That’s true. Short-timers focus on wins, which usually causes them to lose. And quit. That’s how they become short-timers. Get it? Long-timers focus on the plan and the planning process. And…
 
I wish I could negotiate your salary for you. I truly do. Actually, I wish I could be with you every step of the entire recruitment process because, technically, you’re negotiating from the moment you send in your resume and cover letter. Since it isn’t very likely your future employer will let your fun, affable career coach accompany you through t…
 
There are so many reasons we don’t have what we want. Usually, not always, they’re surmountable. Some of the time, it’s in our head. Much of the time, we simply don’t want to make the, uh, time. But, I’ll step out on a limb here. In virtually all of the cases, you have the ability. In fact, I’ve never met anyone whose effort couldn’t beat their tal…
 
Do you wonder what employers want to know about you? That answer is actually quite simple. But, making sure you know what that is and delivering the message so they receive it with zero distortion? Well, that’s the stuff legends are made of. Or, members of Andy’s community! At least after today. It’s not just here’s who I am, here’s what I do, here…
 
Empathy doesn’t sound sexy, but it’s like still water that runs deep. It’s like roots of giant trees you wonder how can possibly stand so tall. And, yet, so few people are actually empathetic. Why? Because you have never, not ever, had an experience that you were not at the absolute center of. Your thoughts and feelings about those experiences are …
 
Interviews are complicated. They get further complicated when interviewers ask bad questions which in turn gets exacerbated by job candidates trying to regurgitate interview speak. It’s really a stitch except for the part about you needing the new job. Enter your Coach to reassure you we can simplify things. The first thing you’ll need to do is lis…
 
Money. Actually, more like money you’ll get in the future. Money is funny that way, especially when the money we’re talking about is your salary. We negotiate like heck for what we’ll be paid in the future. So, why is it that so many employees try to argue for a new salary based on what they did in the past? Wasn’t that so yesteryear? Wasn’t that s…
 
If I had a nickel for every time someone asked me a question about working with executive recruiters, I probably wouldn’t be typing this to you right now.

Is it possible your natural inclinations about corporate recruiters are all wrong? Would you believe me if I told you they were? Indulge me. I’ve only worked directly with a few hundred of them. Only surveyed more than 20,000 over the last 16 years. Would you spend some time with me if I could show you why they want to be your advocate? See, as a j…
 
Fear is learned. For proof, look at a child. Don’tcha just wish you could get it back? True story alert. When I was not quite a teenager, I used to head to Rehm Park in Oak Park, IL. They had this amazing platform, which they built the year I was born (another true fact, coincidentally). The first platform was 10 meters, but that wouldn’t have been…
 
You just couldn’t do it. You just couldn’t hold back your expected salary like Coach wanted you to. You caved. Dang. Well, the bad news is at some point in the interview process—whether in the beginning, middle, or right before the new employer wanted to extend a job offer—you slipped and blurted out, well, anything! The good news for you is I’m yo…
 
We’ve all been there. We need someone to do something we need them to do. That is, they don’t need to do it. We need them to do it for us. It might be for us individually or for the greater good. It makes no diff what your title is, what your job is, whether you’re the boss, or, more likely, not the boss. You’ll probably find yourself in this situa…
 
All that money. I’m just gonna take it. Not. So. Fast. Today, we are the sum total of the decisions of our yesterdays. Don’t get technical on me. Yes. I know some were born with a silver spoon. Others came from the school of hard knocks. Whoever you are. Wherever you started. You are a byproduct of your decisions. The longer term you think, the bet…

In fact, here’s a scary little, uh, fact…not only do 70% of employers check your digital footprint as you are being recruited, but 43% of employers also check up on their employees after they’ve been hired! …
 
Confused about asking questions in a job interview? Thinking, “But, Coach, they only gave me 3 minutes to ask my questions in the interview. What’s up with that?” (So what.) “Ok. This time they gave me 10 minutes. How many questions should I ask?” (Talk fast.) “How do I not incriminate myself or burst my awesomeness?” (You won’t.) “How will I know …

Time management is dead. I don’t even use a daily to-do list. No lie. Haven’t for years. Why? Because daily to-do lists are where the important, but not-urgent tasks go to die.

Remember in school when the snazzy collegiate prof handed you a syllabus? (Ha ha) Syllabi were great because you knew what to study, when to study it, and someone who actually knew what they were doing gave you the right order to study the stuff.
