The Secret to Time Management: Work Smarter, Not Harder

By Liz Mollica

Raise your hand if your calendar looks something like this every day...

Get out of bed early. Check emails and get ready for the day. Create a list of what needs to be done today, and the next three. Calendar management so you don't go crazy. Move conflicts. Schedule meetings. Run a meeting. Order lunch. Sort through expenses. Help the team out with their events and projects. Manage the fitness program. Create new relationships. Maintain current relationships. Manage the onsite nutritionist and their schedule. Manage the two in-house trainers and their schedules. Come up with new ideas for mind and wellness sessions. Leave work. Train for a marathon. Get home. Eat, check more emails, and scroll through social media simultaneously. And finally, get into bed, and set your alarm to do it all over again tomorrow.

What Sales Reps Get Right (and Wrong) on the Job Search

By LiveCareer

It’s the nature of the business for sales reps to come and go. But thanks to a hot economy and recent tech innovations, sales reps have a lot more opportunities available to them than ever before.

In the words of film and stage actors, you don’t want to break character. But does staying in character help when selling yourself to a new sales organization, or does it just get in the way?

3 Reasons Why “Starting at the Bottom” of the Career Ladder is the Catalyst to Getting to the Top

By Maddie Schiess


Soon after my college graduation I unexpectedly fell into a role doing marketing at a cash-rich tech startup that developed enterprise training apps. A few weeks after I started we got our first (and only) big round of funding — which meant that as a company we now had the opportunity to make some big plays.

As a young, newly-minted professional in the real world, it was a dream come true. Due to the inherent nature of a start-up and the “wearer of many hats” mentality, I was able to get my feet wet in all facets of the company. From marketing and content creation to product development and sales. And because we were a small team, I was able to take on responsibility, engage in key strategizing discussions, and take point on a variety of projects. At 22 I was a main player in a marketing team and a go-to colleague for many in the office — definitely not the storyline I had pictured myself in less than six months post college.

How We Fixed a Critical Bug in HubSpot's Culture Code

By Dharmesh Shah

 The first rule of company culture used to be that you didn’t talk about it. Culture should just happen. Talking about your company’s DNA might taint it. Or worse, ruin it. But that’s changed.
