How to Fall Back in Love with your Job

Posted by Robin Walters on Oct 2, 2018 12:01:00 PM

We’re not that into our jobs. No, really. Most American workers are unhappy with their work and calling it in.

Last year, CBS News did a report on the American worker and found that 51% are disengaged, meaning they do the bare minimum to make their paycheck. Another 16% are “actively disengaged,” meaning they spend time at work complaining about the job, the company, and anything else they can think of. The keyword is “actively.” These are the employees who are acting out of their unhappiness, spreading negativity, and ruining workplace culture.

If you’re lucky to live in a part of the country that changes with the seasons, the fall brings vibrant leaves and cool night air. No matter where you live, the fall also brings the Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte. Nothing says fall like the cinnamon, clove, ginger and nutmeg of that perfect hot brew. It’s like autumn in a cup.

How To Network When You Hate Networking Events

Posted by Robin Walters on May 29, 2018 12:00:00 PM

Here’s a secret: Almost everyone hates networking events. That may be because they bring back memories of our eighth-grade spring dance where the boys and girls split down the middle like the parting of the Red Sea. Adults at networking events tend to cluster together in groups, which automatically forces some people into the outsider role. Before you know it, you may be sitting in a chair on the sideline while everyone else is dancing.

As adults, networking events are the kind of forced-fun events that tend to feel less like fun and more like work. Many of us simply are not comfortable in an artificial environment designed to bring people together. Despite the yummy finger food and the open bar, networking events are often viewed as a necessary evil.

This article will help you understand why networking events can be so hard — and give you some pointers on how to make them better.

Copyeditor vs. Copywriter: What’s the Difference?

Posted by Robin Walters on May 22, 2018 12:01:00 PM

All Writers are not created equal. Not only are there differences in skill sets, there are also different kinds of copy that need to be written and edited. It’s true that finding a good writer is hard, but trust us, finding a good editor is also tough. While writing copy is an art (and a science for technical writers), editing is all about the science of grammar, sentence structure, and the weight and meaning of the content.

Copyeditors are both similar to and different from Copywriters. In fact, you can’t have strong copy without both a Copywriter and a Copyeditor. (Also, a Proofreader.)

This article will clear up any confusion you might have about these jobs.
