I was just helping a few people rewrite and beef up their LinkedIn pages this week… and thought… maybe yours may need a little reworking. When was the last time you updated your profile? Or posted an article to attract more eyeballs? Added a link to recent work of yours?

With so much information out there… we’re on overload.

You’ve been invited to interview for a job that will elevate your career. You have the credentials and know you can make a difference at the company. Now, you just have to prepare. There’s a lot of advice out there on how to best approach this important meeting, and it’s overwhelming.

Or is this you?

You’ve been interviewing and interviewing… but no call-backs. You have the experience and knowledge — but something is stopping you from landing your dream job.

Or is it this?

You have the years of experience, you’re ridiculously brilliant, everyone says you should be in “his job”… but you just can’t interview. You won’t apply. You won’t leave and go for the opening that would have you managing a larger team at your competitor. You’re stuck. You’re afraid. You’re afraid of the interview, putting yourself out there… the possible rejection.

Can we have an honest conversation about stress and self-care?

I’m hearing the online buzz more frequently about self-care as stress management. It seems like ‎every day there’s a new article or post targeted at women with tips on how to better balance it ‎all. ‎

But is it real? Is it helping? Is it all bull? Is it just another thing that women are expected to do perfectly? Is self-care another chore to check off?

Guest Blog by Katie Frankhart, mConnexions WriterKatie Frankhart | mConnexions Writer

Throughout my career, I’ve been privileged to have mentorship from brilliant female leaders who show me what I am capable of, and who give me the power to explore and understand myself as a woman and a professional. Working alongside strong women has taught me a lot about the relationship dynamics it takes to be empowered and successful, both in and outside of the workplace.

I’ve had great experiences working with women, and I’ve had experiences so difficult that I started to become jaded about the overall idea of working with a female team. But, I will tell you this: every single experience was dependent on the female leadership, and the overall approach to building a strong team dynamic.
