Clean Things

It’s the best time of the year to clean things! All I can think of is cleaning, cleaning cleaning. The team here at Night and Day Resume will be off the last week of the year for some much needed, and well deserved time off, but all I can think about is cleaning the offices […]

What is Common Courtesy?

So I just sneezed (actually I blew my nose loudly) and someone thought I sneezed because he is so into what he is doing on his computer…that’s good because I pay him to be focused!  He said “bless you” and I said “thank you”. Now I don’t want to get political or religious about […]

Dear Santa…Bring Me That Perfect Job For Christmas!

Time to Change Jobs or Re-Entering the Work Force? Keep It Professional

I’ve been asked many times over the years…how do I transition from one job to another?  There is no easy way to resign, but there is a professional way to move forward.
