Personally Bland to Personal Brand

Confession.  I know jack balls about personal branding.   I could research some popular top authors on branding like Dan Schawbel or Jacob Share but I’m doing just fine, no offense fellers. You see, in a relatively short period of time, I’ve gone from being personally bland, to having myself an increasingly growing personal brand.  The […]

Santa is ballin’

Grubbing on some beef stew last night for dinner, I reached over and grabbed the ‘Jobs’ section from the local paper.  Each week they cover an ‘out of the box job’.  In this weeks edition, the job in discussion is Santa Clause, and just how jolly the seasonal job can be.   Stuffing my face […]

You have an 8% chance of living, now what?

A buddy of mine recently returned to the great state of Pennsylvania after a two year adventure in Los Angeles.  He moved out to Hollywood land to chase his music and acting dreams, but Dave came back to PA to save up some money and decide if/when he’ll go back.  Dave is the exact definition of […]

The worst thing they could’ve said was, “Nein”

Why are people terrified of rejection?  The level of fear and intensity of rejection depends on the situation and specific desirable outcome.  For instance, asking someone out on a date creates a greater fear of rejection than calling the video store to check if “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” is available for rental.  Silly comparison maybe, but […]

Emergency on Interview Day. Really, how about growing a pair?

Since starting Corn On The Job I’ve read stories from job seekers trashing employers, recruiters, and hiring managers.  I’ve sat back and watched, and I have wrote about and agreed with comments regarding how long an interview process can take, the rudeness of a recruiter or manager, and also how completely idiotic certain interview questions […]

The Importance of Networking for Interns

Last week I read a post from one of my favorite bloggers, Ryan Stephens, who wrote a piece called “How to be an Awesome Intern”.   My long ass response to his post suggested that networking is critical for the intern.  This long comment I shared with Ryan and his readers inspired me to turn […]

…99 problems but a JOB ain’t one

I’m a lucky man.  The last 9 months have been extremely rewarding for me, and I’m damn proud of what I’ve accomplished while unemployed.  However, after reading more than a few unemployment horror stories from my Corn Heads, I admit that I do feel pretty guilty sharing my FUNemployed victories.   Since March I’ve been carrying […]

How has Facebook changed the way you vacation?

When I was 12, my parents took my two siblings and I to Jamaica.  We stayed at an all-inclusive resort called Boscobel Beach, and I had one of the most memorable times from my childhood.  The place was beautiful and from what I remember, the food was much better than some of the recent all-inclusive […]

Are you your careers worst enemy?

I have beef with Rod Stewart Today I found out that a lot can change in just one day.  Monday morning I could safely say that Rod Stewart and I were perfect buds.  However, after a few events yesterday, I’m not sure Rod and I are in ‘cahoots’ anymore.  While running a few errands on […]
