Being a new manager can be a lonely proposition. Besides relationship issues, the new manager can feel big pressure to have all the answers. After all, isn’t this why you got the job?

Gather A Support Network
You don’t know everything, no one does. That’s ok. New managers need to not be afraid to ask questions. You must build a network for seeking advice and counsel. No leader is an island. Even the president has numerous advisors. New managers cannot succeed alone in overcoming the complicated challenge of taking over a department, function or entire organization. Even managers that have been around a while should still be seeking advice and trying to grow as a leader. Learning and growing as a leader should never end. Read books and surround yourself with other leaders.

Use Your Team
Invariably, you will inherit problems and mistakes left over from predecessors. While some may seem to be rather obvious, things often are not what they first appear to be. If the team that you are leading has been with the company for a while, then they can give you insight into what the problems may be and how things had been done previously. Additionally, it’s important for your team to feel ownership in their tasks and goals. By giving them the opportunity to give their input, you facilitate that ownership and can get good ideas and solutions.

Decisions and Leadership
While it is good to be knowledgeable and you should spend plenty of time familiarizing yourself with the products/services and policies of your company, management is primarily about leadership and decision making. Ask for advise, gather information, but in the end, the manager has to make the decisions. Seeking (Read more ...)

Resumes – Less is More

On the surface it would seem that resumes should be chock full of information. Especially if you have reached the executive level, a common trap that people fall into is to think that all of the history of achievement and experience needs to be put into their resume to display how accomplished they are and how much experience they have. Overwhelm them with breadth of your experience. Sure, a lot of that information is important, but when you get to the executive level a lot of things are assumed by possible employers. To get to the executive level you have to have a pretty impressive past employment history. They know that. So, you need not mention every single thing that you ever did.

Short And To The Point:
Executive resumes, like all resumes, should be short and to the point, only containing the most important and pertinent information to your rise to the executive level. The one page rule still exists. If you can possibly get your resume to one page then you are doing well. Two pages are acceptable if absolutely necessary but staying away from multiple pages will always be the best bet. Your potential employer is looking through a lot of resumes and if your resume looks like work to read then there’s a good chance its next home is in the circular file. No one wants a laborious resume read. The smart resume maker will make his resume short but replete with the right information.

Be Job Specific:
With all that said, it’s not just about how short your resume is, but what information is included. Consider the job for which you are applying. What skills and experience do you have that specifically applies to that job. If the skill or experience doesn’t directly apply to the position, it probably (Read more ...)

Basic Information On Storage Units

Self storage units are growing at a rapid pace in the US and other countries around the world. According to estimates, around 52,000 storage facilities were formed by the end of 2007, in the US alone. The development of these storage units has taken place on ‘commercial’ as well as ‘industrial’ land. Reportedly, the amount of area for self-storage units in US has crossed over ‘2.2 billion square feet.’ Also, the country’s revenue from the ‘self-storage industry’ is known to exceed $20 billion annually.

Storage: Basic concept

Storage industries function by renting out a particular storage area to an individual or a group of persons for a certain time period. In return, the client pays money to the storage facility owner for the service.

The chief benefit of using a storage facility is the fact that an individual can keep his goods in safe custody and good condition. However, the rates of the storage-units keep fluctuating depending on the storage area -type, time-factor and area coverage.

Mostly, commercial groups and individuals utilize storage units to store furniture, extra inventory, electrical appliances, vehicles, household goods and other products.

Once acquired by an individual or a business group, these ‘units’ are accessed by them with their own personal ‘lock and key’ system. Operators of a self-storage unit also make provisions for sophisticated security devices like computerized access control over the storage unit. Also, many such areas are guarded with ‘security cameras.’

Mostly, in order to get hold of high-quality facilities with good services; one has to make advance bookings. Sometimes, storage unit providers (Read more ...)

How to Apply For Unemployment

Are you ready to apply for unemployment?
If so, know the facts. First, employment is a state benefit, not federal, and therefore the qualifications and benefits vary widely from state to state. In many states (but not all) you can file over the internet, however, before you do, be sure you are filing correctly or you may receive a denial of claims.
First, you will likely need the following when you apply for unemployment:
- Dates you started and ended employment for the last two years
- Income earned. Note in many states certain professions are not eligible, i.e. outside real estate agents for example.
- Exact name and address and phone of your previous employer
- Federal Employer ID number (aka “EIN”) as found on your paystub or W-2
- Mailing address, phone number
- Social Security number and Driver’s License number (assuming you have one)
- Mother’s maiden name for security access
- If military, your separation date.
Whether you are eligible depends on several factors. Generally, unemployment is awarded to those who became unemployed through no fault of their own, however, there are many exceptions. If you were fired or quit, you may still be eligible for unemployment benefits, depending on the nature of your dismissal. Such reasons for coverage in event of being fired, include missing work to prevent domestic abuse of minors, or loss of transportation when no suitable alternative exists (e.g. the bus), etc.
The maximum award is factored on your previous income. Generally, this can be up to about $16,000 as of 2008. To qualify, you must have worked (meaning cannot have been a student, or retired or otherwise not working). You must be physically and mentally able to work. If you have (Read more ...)
