Comments18/01/2017 #6 Lisa 🐝 GallagherNice buzz @Ari Kopoulos, very informative. I think mentoring is a great idea. You wrote, " Finding a strong advisor can take your career to the next level and ensure that there’s always someone to guide you when you face difficult tasks. " I think it would also make a person feel less stressed knowing they have a mentor and make for a much smoother transition.18/01/2017 #5 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#3 Indeed great insights from @Ari Kopoulos and I like the differentiation between short-term oriented coaches and long-term oriented mentors.

Brand Ambassador beBee, Inc.this is a wonderful post!18/01/2017 #2 Preston 🐝 Vander VenGreat Article. My first mentor gave me a to do list. Until I completed this list, I was not worthy of his time. This list was great. It has two main purposes: to help me find my goals so my mentor new what he what I was striving for, and of course, to see if I was commented. If was going to treat this opportunity as a hobby, he most likely would have given me similar advice yet just passed on a book to read instead of his time.18/01/2017 #1 David B.

Comments05/01/2017 #7 Devesh 🐝 Bhatt#6 writing articles on problems doesn't appeal to me because I wrote many articles and no one wanted them.
Its better to write them as inputs to a project report and create solutions to the pressing problems, I am trying to get one working .
I am writing what I enjoy writing. How come you are still running on the Asian Clock..where are you exactly?05/01/2017 #6 Lyon Brave#5 I am not in Asia this year, but yes you have to be a lot more careful in Asia. They play dirty ball for sure and that i agree with. Perhaps, you could write an article on the Asian Market. Where exactly are you? I hate that you often only get paid once a month in China and Thailand. It's easy to get cheated on a pay system like that. It's awesome that Bebee is connecting people from across the globe, but i think the different markets, culture, we will have misunderstandings. Asia certainly has it's own set of rules, for getting ahead. I left Asia to be honest, because i was getting cheated a lot. I found it too hard to navigate not being fully fluent. Plus, because i have an American passport, everyone assumes i'm rich. It puts a big target on my back for people to want to take advantage of me and cheat me.05/01/2017 #5 Devesh 🐝 Bhatt#4 I did many unpaid jobs, I was the basis for continuous. Exploitation of others, you are in Asia, there is utter disregard for worker safety and working for free means no liability on the employer, no proof that I work there ,
Employer is not responsible if I get hit by a truck. Fall off a pole, get looted on premises , get beaten by a customer...no liability.
I believe Chris would understand.05/01/2017 #4 Lyon Brave#1 Chris Gardner's took an unpaid internship. You want to tell him he should have never taken it. He was competing with 20 other guys. Once he landed the broker company, he learned a new skill and Gardner went on to form his own multi-million-dollar brokerage firm. There is more to life than immediate gratification. You can make the quick buck or the big buck.05/01/2017 #3 Devesh 🐝 BhattWell that's exactly why the sectors with high levels of volunteering have high barriers to stability and a long teething period when you average it for everybody.
Take the money, learn to negotiate, if you really see money as addictive after the first earning...spend it on charity for getting the first break so easily, makes one learn self respect and self control.

Comments03/11/2016 #2 Paul BurgeInternships are incredibly valuable if you're lucky enough to find a quality experience and make it work for you. I think they're also a very useful way to help define exactly where you want to start your career and in which direction you want to take it. The exposure to real-world experience also acts as a reality check to see if you're the right fit for the career path you're choosing, or rather if the career path you're choosing is the right fit for you. Thanks for sharing @Alexandra Galviz. Always look forward to your posts!03/11/2016 #1 Kieron JohnsonSolid hints and tips, @Alexandra Galviz! A quality internship experience is like gold dust (especially in this climate). So, finishing an internship strongly can be critical in taking the next step on the employment ladder. Keeping your "eyes on the prize" throughout is a great way of keeping the momentum going until you cross the finish line.

From one Londoner to a Londoner at heart, thanks ever so much for receiving me into the beBee community with such warmth and generosity of spirit. I appreciate you taking the time to outline such a detailed, thoughtful perspective on my post. Take good care of yourself and have a lovely weekend!06/11/2016 #37 CityVP 🐝 ManjitAh! When I accepted the connection request I had no idea that I would open up a first buzz that was magnificent. What I did know is that I am connecting with a fellow Londoner (albeit having emigrated a couple of decades ago), but I have never lost the the Londoner in me having lived their for the first three decades of my life.
So first of all Kieron, a big, big beBee welcome from me and this is a brilliant opening, enough for me to know that you have definitely been noticed. There is an energy and verve in your writing that I found refreshing. There is a point in life where we must graduate beyond the heroic in our lives but narrative is made for these forms of storytelling because a story of rejection to acceptance is what so many people will relate to.
That certain point of graduation is realizing that this is not the story of our life once we have got past that point, so I look forward to the journey you have come to beBee before, which is the Regal Content journey, just as my journey is my "Learning Journey", which is not about my work life, but my way of life.
A enthusiastic welcome to beBee Kieron.

For me it's absolutely 'a way of life'. So I even think "yack - ugh' about the title :-) for me it's too negative. But than again it'll resonate very good and is good "marketing-branding" for all those workers! Great!
Thanks @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher for sharing!27/10/2016 #5 Harvey LloydThese outward ideas of complaining express the challenges others may experience in your complaining. There is a deeper and more disturbing aspect of those who gain the habit of complaining. Bitterness. This word, like it feels when you say it out loud, infects not just the outside world but deeply harms your ability to see success from your own psyche. These are awesome reminders of facing our day looking forward and contributing.27/10/2016 #3 Mohammed A. JawadWhen we start blaming others and/or list out a set of complaints, then we become forgetful of ourselves, our shortcomings, our own weaknesses. The habit of complaining is no good at all. Instead, when we sprinkle a little perseverance, and ponder over things and hope for the best, then this very feeling makes us cheerful. So, why blame others, and spoil our attitude?27/10/2016 #2 Michele Williams@John White, MBA, Thanks for the infographic. It makes a great tweet.

Comments17/10/2016 #47 Jared 🐝 Wiese#42 Hi @Charles David Upchurch. Thank you so much for clarifying. Sorry for misunderstanding your intentions. In #39 I was trying to show I had done my due diligence. I can see how the link might not be noticed.
The issue we posters have is that when you see the blurb of a post on a wall, you only see the first ~250 characters. Those are precious up-front words to capture the reader's attention and let them know what your article is about. If you start by giving a long link to any post, the summary message may be lost. As it stands, I have updated the post to list and link to Steve's post up front:
'Steve Blakeman wrote a great post, "Burn your résumé... LinkedIn has made it obsolete", and made a compelling case for companies dropping traditional resumes - burning them, in fact - for online profiles instead. I wish it were that easy!

... and I added Steve's link again with the end photo credit.
I may have now lost my main problem statement, but maybe it is clearer this way. Hopefully I am doing better. :) It's a balance.

1) I had no idea that there was a link under the main photo. I only tried it after your comment #39.
2) You stated "Steve Blakeman wrote a great post"... of course you did. I did NOT suggest that you were trying to take "credit or anything from Steve Blakeman."
That wasn't my point at all. I was just hoping that you would add a link to the article that you had already properly mentioned.
3) I did not see the link "(See https://www.bebee.com/producer/@steve-blakeman/burn-your-resume-linkedin-has-made-it-obsolete for Steve's original post.)" when I first read the article. If it was there, I apologize for missing it.
I'm not trying to make anyone look bad. I just made the mistake of making a suggestion publicly which I should have either not made at all, or I should have made it privately. Instead of being helpful, I appear to have angered you, and for that I am also sorry.16/10/2016 #39 Jared 🐝 Wiese#28 @Charles David Upchurch
