Nonprofit Career Round-Up: Memorial Day Weekend Edition

Well it's hard to believe it, but Memorial Day weekend is coming up.  As a note, I will be starting the festivities tomorrow, so there will be no posts tomorrow; I will be back starting on Tuesday.  You should take the opportunity to take a short break from your job search during this holiday weekend.  That way, you will be rested and ready to go again starting on Tuesday.  So forgot about the job search and job boards this weekend, and enjoy the time with your family and friends.

  • 'How Successful Freelancers REALLY Get Started'-I don't talk about this a lot, but freelancing is a great way to keep yourself busy while looking for full time employment.  Besides, a lot of time freelance work can lead to full time jobs.
  • 'Does Your Power Style Support Your Job Search?'-A lot of times, the way your personality shines through in an interview can be the difference between getting a job and seeing it slip away.  This article from The Harvard Business Review shares an anecdote on how this can happen, and what you can do to improve.
  • '20 Classic Business Card Mistakes That Make Your Life Harder'-Yeah, this is another post from JobMob, but it was too good to pass up.  Giving out business cards is a good way to get remembered at networking events, but you need to make sure you avoid the mistakes listed in this article.
