Rebuilding my voice

I imagine that singers, actors and writers have experiences that cause their “voice” to dampen. Or they simply go through phases where they aren’t ready or able to produce their art.

I’ve definitely gone through that phase. In fact, you, dear reader, might notice that while this blog started way back in 2005, there has been very little activity for a long time.

It is time to change that. Or putting it another way, my voice is back, and I have a lot to say, relative to helping you make a living, and on some other topics as well.

But please don’t think that I haven’t been in the game.

In July of 2009, I took BoldCareer from a full-time to part-time endeavour and accepted the role of Director, Graduate Career Services UBC’s Sauder School of Business, a Top 100 global business school.

Which means that on a daily basis, I am running a coaching team, designing career-related e-learning and workshop programs / content, and interfacing with a set of highly intelligent and demanding customers called MBAs. And it is good fun.

But things are percolating on this site/blog and I am excited to start delivering some cool things to you over the coming weeks / months.

So, if you are new to the site, I welcome you and hope that you will follow me via email subscription, or the various social methods you can see on the toolbar at the bottom of the browser. And for returning visitors, thanks so much for staying in touch. Your loyalty and interest are greatly appreciated.

So, here we go!

  1. Follow up is everything in today's competitive job market. So many applicants do a great job upfront presenting their personal brand, but completely strike out when it comes to sending a thank you. Very few employers are sold after the first pitch–the bulk of hiring happens with a strong follow up. Something as simple as this can make a huge impact in a hiring manager's decision.
    Great post!
