Last quote by Amanda Augustine

Rather than focusing on your own wants and needs, explain how your skills match the requirements of your target position. Leave off those meaningless statements about being a 'proactive self-starter' unless you have something meaningful to say.feedback

Most recently, Amanda Augustine said, “On one hand, your resume must showcase what you can offer: your skills, experience and other abilities that will provide value to the employer, particularly for the role you're pursuing. Identify the terms that routinely pop up in the job requirements, and be sure to incorporate them into your resume as you're itemizing your qualifications. As an entry-level candidate, it's better to omit an objective statement altogether than include one peppered with fluffy buzzwords that focuses on what you want from the job.”.

Deadlines, priorities and goals constantly change, but you only uncover this news when a colleague casually mentions it in passing, instead of through your manager.feedback

It's an incredibly effective greeting. A simple 'Hello, how are you?' is a great way to touch base with each of your direct reports, keep a pulse on your team's initiatives and check the temperature on team morale. Let them know you appreciate their efforts. Employees are willing to work harder for someone whom they believe genuinely values their contributions.feedback

Whether you're kicking off a new project, handing out an assignment or delivering feedback, it's important to make sure you and employee are on the same page. By asking this question, you're giving your team the opportunity to get the clarity they need without feeling foolish. As the boss, it's your responsibility to keep the goals of the department – as well as the organization – top of mind. If someone proposes a new project, ask how this initiative will help your team achieve one of their goals. By always asking, Why?' you'll keep your team focused on the work that matters most.feedback

If any of your team members work remotely, you may have to get creative with video-conferencing, but it will certainly pay off.feedback

May 29 2017

If you're not getting credit for your work, if you feel your concerns are not being heard and this job isn't an integral step to achieving your career goals, your best option may be to seek new opportunities.feedback

May 29 2017

Ask for their feedback from the get-go, and come to an agreement on your approach so they feel more confident letting you take the lead. However, there's a difference between a stretch goal and an impossible one. If you've been saddled with what seems to be an unrealistic expectation, resist the urge to say 'no' right off the bat. When you immediately shut down, you send the signal to your boss that you're inflexible, unwilling to try and lack problem-solving skills. Instead, explain to your boss what you will need in order to meet this new demand. Provide options instead of excuses.feedback

May 29 2017

It could be a lack of knowledge ... about the company's industry or the latest trends in your field. When you get the feeling your boss isn't as good at their job as they originally advertised, it can feel impossible to work for them. Document your work and your contributions, continue to build strong relationships with those inside and outside your department, and with a little luck, your boss will make a big enough mistake to grab the attention of his or her peers.feedback

May 29 2017

When possible, look for common ground. You can often make a better connection with someone, boss or otherwise, when you find you have a shared passion.feedback

May 29 2017

If you find your manager to be less than forthcoming, it's up to you to take the first steps. Ask many questions until you have a clear idea of what's going on and what's expected of you.feedback

May 29 2017

Deadlines, priorities and goals constantly change, but you only uncover this news when a colleague casually mentions it in passing, instead of through your manager. You'd think great communication skills would be a prerequisite for becoming a manager, but unfortunately this is not always the case. Share the notes from every meeting. Send updates on a daily basis. Be super responsive when they ask a question. When you overshare and keep your manager in the loop, they're more likely to trust you've got everything under control and back off.feedback

Help pull them out of the weeds and remind them of the value their work provides to their department and the company overall by reminding them how it ties into the bigger picture. This exercise will not only help reduce the perceived monotony of their tasks, but also help your team think more strategically about their work.feedback

May 25 2017

You can perform this daily task in various ways. If you schedule a meeting with one of your employees, keep it. Don't show up 10 minutes late or spend half the time checking emails while they're updating you on their work. Don't blow off their one-on-one meeting. It sends the message that your staff is not important to you and you don't value their time. Don't pass the blame along to your direct reports or dismiss the mistake. Be accountable. Remember, you need to lead by example. Your team will take their cues from you. Act accordingly.feedback

I recommend arriving 15 minutes before your scheduled interview so you have time to register with reception, complete any paperwork, use the restroom to freshen up. Get your bearings before the interview begins.feedback

Your wardrobe should be clean, pressed and well-fitting. The goal is to look like you belong at the company.feedback
