Happy Tuesday! I’m writing this while sitting in Puerto Rico on a work trip. My fellow fundraisers (or really anyone for that matter) never feel sorry for me when I do this annual weekend leadership event because the location is just spectacular (to say least).
So no violins or crying a river for me that I’m working over a weekend – I get it 🙂
On with Tuesday Truths!
- Whether it deals with emails or if you verbalize it, STOP. IT.
- If you have goals you want to achieve before the end of the year, here are some tips on how to get motivated to reach them. You got this!
- Your resume made the cut and you’ve got interviews set up so here’s how you get the job as well as ways you ruin your chances of getting hired.
- I’ve worked with enough clients and campaigns to know when it’s time to hit the road. When you’re working on a campaign, it’s especially important to remember not to burn bridges (although you may be tempted to light the match and watch it all go to hell!!) so if you’re looking to make an early departure, check out these tips.
- We’re getting ready for the excitement of #Election2016 so if you’re looking for a campaign related job (regardless if you’re a D or a R), here’s a great list of organizations that have job listings. Although it’s very true that a lot of jobs aren’t posted, remember to network and prove your worth. It’s a highly competitive industry so utilizing every advantage makes your chances of landing a job where you want to be that much higher. If you self identify as a Democratic Asian American Pacific Islander, then you should also consider sending your resume to America’s Opportunity Fund (AOF) AAPI Pipeline Project.
- Have you ever started a job and realized that the fit wasn’t right? Here are 6 strategies that you can utilize so that you can have a more love than hate relationship with your job.
- One of the most important aspects of working on campaigns is the behind the scenes work of the research department. In fact, it’s so important I mention it as one of 3 pillars for making strategic decisions. Learning how to do the work as well as how to disseminate the information is a matter of skill and finesse. The New York Times had an op-ed on how important it can be on a campaign.
