E-peek

Feel overwhelmed by all the information on the WWW?
You can’t google “career” or “job” – 2,670,000,000 hits!
What or who can I trust!
Gee, I wish I had seen this before!
Oh no, I have to pay!

Sound familiar?

We thought that we could share with you some of our favorites – a peek at what is out there, in the world of virtual or online resources related by far or near to career planning and job-seeking. You will find food for thought, tools for action, historical facts and much more. We hope you’ll enjoy them as much as we do.

Information and Attention

In this information age, all are competing for our attention. We get entangled by the dramatic, the scary, the sensational and often left with a dread of the present and the future. Steven Pinker sets the facts straight.

Is the world getting better or worse? A look at the numbers.

Two ears and one tongue

Having two ears and one tongue, we should listen twice as much as we speak.
~ Turkish Proverb Source: https://proverbicals.com/ears

“Long before human beings first carved figures on cave walls, people were gathering together to share stories that taught, inspired and entertained. We seem to be wired to absorb what we hear, so when we listen to a podcast, we tend to listen intently. We don’t skim or scan the way we might do with a news article or a blog post. We create images in our minds of the scenes being described. We connect to the story, and we learn.”…
…“Not only can you listen during your commute, while waiting in line or on a plane, but you can also listen while you’re doing all those activities of daily living that eat up so much time, from laundry to home maintenance and repairs.”

Direction

One of the world’s most famous quote, “life is what happens to you while you’re making other plans”, reminds us that the journey – the unwinding of your career through dreams, synchronicity and happenstance begs a leap of faith more than the confines of a set plan.

Give yourself direction and let the plan unfold.
