  Speak up or shut up – How do you make a graceful exit?
by Hallie Crawford - Jul, 2011
Remember a year ago when the JetBlue flight attendant jumped out of the plane on the inflatable escape slide…and by doing so how he made such a public spectacle of his unhappiness at work and reasons for leaving his job. I was reading about the departure of Richard “Chip” Lutton Jr. who’s been Apple’s chief patent officer who up to this moment, hasn’t cited reasons for his departure. What’s more appropriate? How do you k...
  The key to successful career change
by Hallie Crawford - Jul, 2011
As a certified career coach, I have worked with hundreds of clients on identifying and realizing their dream jobs. Throughout this work, I have noticed that one consistent theme separates clients who are successful in their goals, versus those that continuously struggle. The defining factor is commitment. I have seen this play out time and time again. A client who comes to career coaching completely confused and miserab...
  How the unemployment rate SHOULD affect you
by Hallie Crawford - Jul, 2011
The WSJ's reporting on the unemployment rate for June and lower amount of jobs added last month: "Bad news for the U.S. economic recovery. New private-sector jobs barely outweighed government job losses, causing the unemployment rate to climb to 9.2 percent from 9.1 percent. It's the third straight month the jobless rate has risen, and unemployment is now at its highest level since December 2010. In total, the economy ad...
  Michelle Obama’s take on finding your dream job
by Hallie Crawford - Jul, 2011
I really liked this quote from Michelle Obama’s commencement speech at Northern Iowa University. It reminds me of something I often tell my clients. The path won’t always be laid out neatly for you. Sometimes you won’t be able to find that perfect job. Sometimes you might momentarily take a job just to stay afloat. – Michelle Obama This could not be any truer. Just like life, your career path isn’t going to always be su...
  Should you ditch the cover letter?
by Hallie Crawford - Jul, 2011
In this day and age with technology and instant communication at our finger tips, people pay less attention to details and the little things that create a final product. This is especially true in the current job market. People begin to skip steps and slack off on things such as resumes. I recently read this article from FOX Business news, "How to Write the Perfect Cover Letter." First impressions are critical, especially d...
  Talk about commitment – career coaching in the janitor’s closet!
by Hallie Crawford - Jun, 2011
During one of my recent career coaching groups, client Brent admitted he had been attending our career coaching calls from some very interesting places at his company. Brent is one of the most committed clients I have ever worked with. I’m constantly impressed with his positive attitude, his willingness to take a look at the tough obstacles in his way, and he is the first one to take action on our homework every week. On t...
  Managing your career in a bad economy
by Hallie Crawford - Jun, 2011
I was interviewed on the radio recently in Atlanta, on Q100, talking about whether the economy’s getting better and how people are feeling about it. The good news is that more of my clients are scoring job interviews. In fact, two of my clients recently have secured new jobs. I’ve also noticed that despite high unemployment rates, employee confidence is coming back. I’m hearing of clients getting called by recruiters again, in...

  Women don’t know their value in the marketplace
by Hallie Crawford - Jun, 2011
As a woman, it is extremely important to know your self-worth, especially in your career. Here is a great article in I recently read in Time Magazine about how women are still earning less than men, The 100% Solution. As a working mom I have to admit I took some offense to Donald Trump’s quote when asked about hiring working moms, he replied, “She’s not giving me 100%. She’s giving me 84%…” The article’s author says working...
  Career Advice: Have a balanced, optimistic attitude
by Hallie Crawford - Jun, 2011
I am always telling my career coaching clients to have a positive attitude in their career path. That is why this article in Time Magazine caught my eye, The Science of optimism. You have to remain optimistic and look out for opportunities in order to keep your career in shape. This is a great article that shows how being positive can help you, but sometimes it can also hinder you. I've experienced both sides of this equat...
