In my column for next Thursday, I give tips from negotiator coach Jim Camp on how to get what you want in 2008. If your New Year's resolution is to be more assertive or meet a new career goal, learn how to say no. My New Year's resolution is to keep current on this blog!
As of November 1, my WorkWise column is now published in The Press Telegram and Los Angeles Daily News in addition to the Daily Breeze. Don't look for it on Tuesdays, though -- it has moved to Thursdays, to the inside of the business section.

This week in my column, I address the issue of job seekers' complaints of not being notified when a position for which they've interviewed has been filled. I acknowledge that for human resources professionals who interview perhaps hundreds of candidates, it just may not be possible to call all of the ones who don't get the job. But for small employers, such as a single mom interviewing for a nanny, it's a lack of common courtesy. Personally, I think common courtesy is dying a slow death, and will soon join common sense in the grave. Read this humorous, although unfortunately oh-so-true, obituary for common sense that has been making it's rounds via email.

Happy New Year! I wish Wise Work for all in 2007. According to a recent survey, seeking new employment tops the list of New Year's resolutions for one in five (20 percent) workers. If that's you, read my Tuesday column that offers tips on early-year job hunting. Then come back next Tuesday for advice on how to manage emails for a more productive 2007.
