As someone who has reviewed hundreds (maybe even thousands) of resumes myself, the following is advice to help your resume stand out.

How to Eliminate Accidental “Reply All” Email Embarrassment

Tell me if this sounds familiar – a close co-worker sends out an email to your whole company notifying them of a new policy change, and you take that as an opportunity to reply back and tell the co-worker about the great time you had at the Justin Bieber concert last night. The only problem is that you accidentally hit the dreaded “Reply All” button and sent your response to your entire company. The next thing you know, some people are using the same “Reply All” button to inform you of your mistake (“Ummm … you know you sent this to all of us, right?”) or mock your love of Justin Bieber (there are some great memes and gifs out there!). All the while, others are using “Reply All” to condemn each other for using “Reply All” or to request removal from this flood of emails.

Huntsman MBA Adds a New Sales Course to the Executive Curriculum

Sales: It is at the very heart of business. Accounting, financing, operations and human resource departments have very little to do that creates any value for the firm, “until a sale is made.” If you can’t close, you can’t compete, they say. Sure, most people would like to design campaigns, massage numbers, or steer a vision and culture. In the end, you need to knock on doors; build relationships; hear “no” over-and-over; and overcome lame excuses about time, budget, manpower, and authority. Sales isn’t glorious, but at the same time, sales is the fuel that propels the innovation engine of business. Remember, just as a car will only go as long as it has fuel in the engine, sales is the single most important strategic contingency. A business without sales does not stay in business very long.

Owning the Outcome: How Leaders Create Natural “Buy-In” and Ownership

“Buy-in” is a term we often hear in our society. We can “buy-in” to a franchise, “buy-in” to an idea, “buy-in” to a new way of thinking or way of life, or “buy-in” to a potential solution. In a business setting, it can mean a lot of things, but let’s focus on “buy-in” as it relates to choosing a business strategy or solution. Once you’ve “bought it,” by definition you become an owner. In the case of buying into a solution, you become part of a movement that hopefully improves your team and your work environment. But, as we all know, lack of “buy-in” can cause problems down the road. Here’s a story that illustrates the point.
