Here’s a look at some great writing for your reading pleasure…

Five Things that Help New Work Pioneers Make Real Change

Christine Livingston is quickly becoming one of my favorite writers on the workplace and what we need from our corporate experiences. In this article, she takes a great look at how we can figure out what we want and how to make the changes to get there. A thoughtful, and if you want to make it so, a powerful opportunity to clarify what you need to change.

Kill the Performance Review

Eve Tahmincioglu, the Career Diva, advocates killing the Performance Review. It would be nice; doesn’t look like it will happen anytime soon.

Candidate Abuse is Costing Your Company

Companies spend a lot of money on ensuring customer satisfaction — and totally abuse their job candidates. Why this costs more than money.

4 Things That Will Kill Your Job Search

Getting clarity on exactly the type of job you want isn’t as easy as you think. Career Rocketeer explains.

Stress Amid Plenty

Yes, the great technology advances of today also advance our stress and anxiety levels. Perhaps you should save reading this until Monday (heh…). The Times Online explains the reasoning and how to break the cycle.

Being Liked vs. Being Valued

While talking about Sales, The Fast Growth Blog also nails it for our jobs as well.

A good question. The Mama Bee attempts to answer it in What Needs to Change.

Where I live, March Madness is an epidemic — in a good way. Enjoy your weekend.

  • Thanks for your kind words, Scot and for including me here. Much appreciated.

    You've put together here a great reading list! I'm already a big fan of The Mama Bee. The other article I particularly enjoyed was the Career Diva's one about Performance Reviews. I've been thinking about a post with a working title “Is HR dead?” This just appears to give me more ammunition for my argument!

  • Scot Herrick says:

    The question of if HR is dead is a good one. The bigger the company, the more HR protects the company from the minions in my experience. That is different, I think, in smaller companies. Hmmm…think I will ask what HR should be doing…
