4 Common Career Change Mistakes To Avoid

Andrew LaCivita has another great video on the use of a cover letter. Should you use one or not? If you do, what should you have in it? He stresses four (4) main points so you do not make mistakes.

I will address a couple of them here. First, don’t make it too long. You may send in an actual cover letter, you may place this info in an email introduction, or you may fill in as notes in an applicant tracking system. In any case, be brief.

His second suggestion is to start off with a single sentence that states that you are writing to inquire about the opening for ____ position. It easily tells the reader why you have sent in this material.

The third and fourth suggestions to avoid mistakes are direct and essential. He explains it all in this informative video.

I believe you will like this informative message..

The video is 6.30 minutes long.

5 Reasons You Need A Mentor

This article was presented by the Milwaukee Community Journal.

LaShawnda S. Wilkins has presented 5 reasons why you need a mentor. She begins the article by asking some questions. Essentially, she is asking “do you get in your own way sometimes?”

All of us run into situations where we really do need the help of others. We can’t do everything ourselves.

A couple of the points brought our by LaShawnda are: Mentors are knowledgeable - They are experienced and provide great insight, especially regarding how and why some people fail in their task.

Mentors encourage - They have a broad perspective and can communicate that to you. They can see things that you may not be able to see. Mentos find a way to motivate and strengthen your resolve.

There are three more great reasons she addresses in the article. Find them all in the link below.

What Working Remotely Means For Career Advancement has developed an article that addresses the point of advancement while working remotely. Their point is the prior method of talking with someone at a company happy hour was not really the best approach anyway. In addition, it was not always fair to all employees.

Their thought is what if companies set up their own “career self-service” environment? The establishment of “career hubs” by companies could allow companies to find mentors, coursework, new jobs, and contingent work, all based on their interests and potential.

The platforms automatically fill in the skills that employees have, based on their current and past roles. For example, the technology might “know” that an experienced designer is likely to be proficient in a particular design software. Then, employees can add skills—anything the technology “missed.”
