I'm the mentor/"manager" for a guy early in his career in my company. I've gotten routine feedback that his attitude/demeanor isn't really a culture fit, but other than that, he's a pretty good employee. We'd like to see him "shaped" into someone who is better fit. How do we proceed? Is this in the realm of possibility? [more inside]
Can you provide anecdotes, books, resources that can help us with our mental and actual planning on moving abroad for several years? Specifically on the "what happens when we go home?" part of the equation. [more inside]
Return to the career I once had (the known--when I was happy) or stay in school for the unknown (when I'm not happy)? Better yet, how should I make decisions when you have lots of options and interests for the long term? [more inside]
Career Filter: I'm mid 20s, consider myself pretty lucky with a wonderful life. I'm blessed (or damned) with the ability, finances, and interests to make choices with my life. Unfortunately, I make large decisions in my life with too little thought. Based on some deliberation and discussion, I've made up two paths I want to go with, for now. I'd like some help on choosing one or the other. [more inside]
How does one go about asking an organization/company who has nothing advertised if they need any help? This would be unpaid. As I transition to another career (in this case, Urban Planning), I'm trying to get more experience and be productive at the same time. I'd like to volunteer/intern (whatever is the difference?) at firms or organizations that deal with that sort of thing (I can make that list). I think in my resume/e-mail I can explain my transferable skills (IT background). I'm doing this as I'll be attending graduate school in a year and would like to be productive outside of test prep and applications. Looking for tips on who to contact, if e-mail is the best way, and how to structure the communication.
As a one-time IT Consultant (Business degree), should I choose planning as a profession? [more inside]
