We’re in sales. We talk to people all day long. Whether we are on the phone or sending an email, we are trying to connect with people on a daily basis. As a result we’ve created our own language. For better or for worse, we have our own acronyms, industry-specific jargon, and go-to phrases. We’re all guilty of it. Whether you like the sayings or not, at one point of another we have all received a phone call with a sales representative on the end asking if “we have 5 minutes to talk.”
You are burnt out. You need a fresh start. Maybe you just don’t like what you are selling, but you love sales so you start looking into other verticals. Making the transition is not always the easiest, and the road to being the performer you are now can be extensive and frustrating. If you’re considering a job change in a new industry, keep the following in mind before making the change:

Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and holiday ads are already making their debut. Believe it or not, 2014 is already coming to a close and companies are looking to fill their headcount needs to kick off 2015.

So how do you go about surviving and thriving at your company party without tarnishing your professional image? Here are the top 18 do’s and don’ts to ace the company holiday party.
The best companies understand that you can have an amazing product, a fertile market, and a catchy slogan, but if you don’t have the right people on your team, success will be a constant uphill battle. It makes sense: if your staff members are enthusiastic and skilled, not only are they great at their jobs, but they’re also the kind of people who will always be thinking of ways to make the company even better at what it does.
This question comes up more often than not. A person will launch their job search and go through the interview process with another company. If all goes well they receive a job offer, accept the offer, and resign from their current role. Sounds great, right?Unfortunately, when you decide to accept a new job opportunity and give your resignation your current employer may present you with a counter offer. Maybe they offer you a promotion or a raise to stay at the company. Should you take the counter offer?
