What Managers Are Looking for in 2018

A guest post by Susana Kuehne

After digging into the pool of information gathered from my experiences and the experiences of those in my broad network of friends and professionals, I gained helpful insight on how others can increase their chances of landing or acing an interview with companies such as Google, Roto-Rooter, Target, Re/Max Real Estate, Lockheed Martin, Morgan & Morgan, and more.

Why Being A Lifelong Learner Can Be A Lifelong Adventure

It doesn’t matter whether you are 4, 24 or 54, the concept of learning should be as exciting and as thrilling as ever.

You love the idea of learning something new every day to keep your brain in gear and to help you understand the wonder of the world.
