The Pittsburgh Career Connector is Live!

connector1

 

 

If you’ve used our online career center lately, you may have noticed a banner at the top of the page announcing the upcoming launch of a new and improved job search tool, the Pittsburgh Career Connector. Well, that day is finally here! The site is live and there are a number of new features to help you with your job search. With the new Career Connector you can…

  • Search for jobs under multiple categories, which have been updated and expanded to include new job functions
  • Visit your dashboard to view a summary of your saved jobs, application history, and recommended jobs that may be of interest to you
  • Set up weekly, biweekly, or monthly email alerts for new jobs that are posted to categories that you specify
  • Upload resumes and cover letters in formats such as .doc and .pdf to send to employers with your application instead of entering plain text or copying and pasting

I hope you will spend some time on the site and tell us how you like it!

A Change Will Do You Good

Browsing through my bi-weekly email from Dewey & Kaye, I came across a great article written by one of their staff entitled “Personal Strategies for Coping with Workplace Change & Stress“. Who couldn’t use a few tips on this topic? But it seems especially relevant in today’s world of uncertainty where layoffs are the norm and workloads are shifting.

Employees are now expected to pick up the to-do lists of their laid off colleagues and there is more pressure to be as productive as possible and make yourself a known valuable asset to those passing out the pink slips. You’re worried. There’s your sister, your husband, your best friend – all looking for a way to pay the bills. Your company is reporting earnings well below what is needed for you to receive that bonus, but no matter; you want to kiss the ground each morning you wake up and realize that you are still employed. It’s this state of flux – of not know what will happen next, while readjusting to the new reality of a workplace – that makes us anxious. And I do truly believe what this article is telling us – that the action and optimistic attitude we embrace today will only lead us to success (not to mention a longer life) in the future.
