Emily Kapit is a certified resume writer & career strategist. She is a leader in providing strategic career consulting & advisory services.
Our bread and butter on this show is giving advice to folks who are dealing with… let’s call it less-than-ideal boss situations. And we often tell people that to resolve these conflicts, it usually involves having to actually talk to the boss about it.But we’re well aware those can be tricky conversations, and it’s easier said than done. So here with some tips to approach it is Joseph Grenny. He’s a four-time New York Times bestselling author and a leading social scientist for business performance. Grenny also conducted a study called “Open Secrets” that explores dealing with this sort of conflict.  Then, Liz and Rico chat with listener Connie who’s been pegged as a sort of Renaissance woman in her current position, but wants to know how to market her skills for a new gig. For more resume tips, listen to our conversation with master resume writer Emily Kapit. And in this week’s Mind the Gap segment, we discuss the wisdom of friending colleagues online. It’s a big decision!Finally, first-time supervisor Anna calls in with the age-old question of how to know if you’re hiring the right person.
