In the Muck: PREP Progress Report

PREP Happenings Wonderful.   After the end of the first phase of PREP, all participants are: Confused Feeling less motivated than they did at the beginning of the program Feeling behind and a little overwhelmed and starting to see things that make them angry and frustrated   “That sounds uncomfortable”, you might be thinking, and you’re right!

Get Comfortable With Being Uncomfortable

Pro-Tips How comfortable are you with getting uncomfortable? Getting comfortable with being uncomfortable sounds odd and counter-intuitive. Why would we ever choose to do something that felt uncomfortable?

Pro-Tip: Express Passion in Interviews

Interview Advice Interviewing is daunting for most of us. Interviewing in the midst of a career relaunch can feel especially overwhelming, which is why preparation is particularly important. Heeding advice from those at the proverbial top is a no-brainer. We recently picked this bit up from a hiring manager: “She seemed ready to go to work again, which is great. We weren’t 100% confident, [however], that she loved our mission/vision/model. It was hard to tell how she really felt…” It is widely known that researching a company before setting out for an interview is essential. Being able to speak...
