Employment and relationships with co workersWritten by Josh Nay
Continued from page 1
manipulated with a sexual pretext. Not a very hard-drawn line in my opinion. But, sexual harassment is a problem as well as relationships among co-workers, often latter magically transforming into former. Keeping a respectable distance from lives of your peers at work is key. How you present yourself to them will directly influence how they respond towards you. If you show interest in their life away from work, and start developing a relationship, emotions and insecurities will soon start influencing your interactions, and main problem will be fact that neither of you will be aware of it. Our thoughts are modified by our feelings all time and when that happens it seems everybody sees it but us. Be friendly but not overtly open, avoid pet names and personal e-mails with co-workers. Always keep in mind fact that they will respond to how you associate with them. Iím not saying having friends at work will get you fired, im just demonstrating how sometimes over-friendliness can be Detrimental to your success.

Resume Writing TipsWritten by Josh Nay
Continued from page 1
Look in job databases for potential openings. You can search through thousands of potential jobs using field and location selection criteria.. Many local employers post job openings in this database because state does not charge a fee for service.
If you are in college or have graduated from a local college check out their career services department. Many have web sites with links to recruiters, upcoming recruiter visits, job postings, and much more.
Most major and even local newspapers have online editions with help wanted sections. These can be superior to paper editions because you can often do keyword searches allowing you to zero in on potential jobs. This is much more efficient than reading hundreds of job ads in paper editions. Landing that first job can be hard. Many employers look for "experienced" candidates. If you have had internships be sure to emphasize them in your resume. If you have assisted a professor in research or teaching emphasize that in your resume. Many of your smaller companies feel they don't have time or resources to train you. They need someone that can be productive now! Generally your larger companies have resources and internal training programs to get inexperienced employees up to speed. Your may have a better chance getting on with a larger company. Your first job may not be your "dream" job. Look for one that can give you experience and make you attractive to an employer a few years down road. Large companies are often a great place to start because they tend to be most willing to hire and train new graduates. Unfortunately they are often not best place to have a career. Many large companies are stagnant or grow slowly. Promotions and career growth is often slow and you have to wait for someone ahead of you to retire. If you go to work for a large company do it for a few years to get some practical experience to add to your resume. If your career has not advanced significantly after a few years look for new opportunities. It is often easy to get stuck at a large company because they offer stability, decent salary, and good benefits. Once you have some experience look for a young fast growing company to join. Often you can ride their success upwards to a much higher position and salary compared to staying with an older slow growth company. Look at what happened to people that joined Microsoft early on. If you have visions of having your own business some day find out who is best company in your industry. Go to work for them and learn what they have done to be successful. Also look for how you could do things better than they do. Then after a few years take plunge and start your own company..
