Where was the professionalism in the debate?

In every profession, professionalism should never be compromised. Based on the performances between the 2 presidential candidates last night, Professionally was completely absent. In this video I talk about how the debate showed little to no professionalism between the candidates.

Why your career success is YOUR responsibility

https://anchor.fm/mentor-shelly/episodes/Episode-130-Why-your-career-success-is-YOUR-responsibility-ea7j21 (Listen on the podcast)

You didn’t expect your parents to make you successful as an adult did you? Your parents have done their job of raising you to be a responsible adult….now it’s time to show them what and how you can use all the great principles of adulthood to good use.

As I’m writing this, I also realize that not everyone had the same upbringing or even had parents to teach them about being responsible adults. You have had to learn quite a bit about life on your own, so I understand.

I want all of you to know…no matter your background, past or circumstances, the success or failure you achieve in life is completely and totally, your responsibility and within your control. Once you reach the ripe old age of eighteen (18), you are officially an adult. If your parents or anyone else helps you financially, economically or in any way, it’s a bonus. Be grateful! They are not obligated to help you, so if they do…please do not take it for granted and show some gratitude.

The heights of your #career and #business ventures are completely in your arsenal of control. I want you to take charge of your destiny, but I want you to know something extremely vital. You must have FOCUS and you must HAVE A PLAN to keep your overall career and business development focus in check.

If you do not have a plan or still trying to figure your next career move, then I can certainly help you with that…I have a guide that help you get focused and create a plan for your career venture or business development. You can access the DREAM CAREER GUIDE by going here.

If you’re looking for for a more direct and concrete plan for your business or career development, then schedule a “CAREER STRATEGY” session with me by going here.

Do you need “Accomplishments” on your Resume?

Your resume is how employers first meet you…before they actually decide to have a conversation via email or telephone. Is your resume truly doing you any justice or causing you to get tossed in the throw away pile EVERY TIME?

In a previous video, I talked about how the “Summary of Qualifications” replaced the objective section on a resume. You can watch that video..here’s link here…

You will also need to add what you have accomplished in your previous job opportunities to show how you applied the knowledge, skills and expertise to achieve positive or desired results. Your future employer needs to know you can create those positive or desired results for them as well, so showcasing your accomplishments communicate it to them directly. The accomplishments are helping to market you better than other candidates that only communicate their skills, knowledge base and credentials.

If you want to make sure your current resume is marketing you well enough to have employers contact you directly, you can use my resume review resource by going to https://mentorshelly.com/services/toolsreview

Interview Question Series: What pay rate are you looking for?

When you are in the #interviews, whether face to face, over the phone or through some form of video based technological platform, you must prepare for the possible questions they will ask and have your questions ready to ask the employer or employer representative as well.

I have experienced this question with quite a few employment agencies trying to gauge what rate of pay I am willing to accept. In the video, I talk about three (3) ways to respond to this interview question without committing to an actual pay rate before the job or career opportunity is offered.

If you are looking for one-on-one help with your next interview on strategies, let’s work together by you going here.

Disappointed that “The Banker” movie may not be released


This is an important story that MUST be told & seen. The Banker captures the story of two melanated men using the cultural biases and racially discriminatory environment of the 1950s to establish themselves in the banking industry. They used their access to banking to help others obtain home and business loans.

It’s a powerful story of using disadvantages to your advantage, which I find profound. In your career and life, you can learn and take actions to use biases, challenges and disadvantages to change history.
