How to make a friend for life in 30 minutes or less 

A man who went out to find a friend and returned 3 days later empty handed.  The same man then went out to BE a friend and was inundated with more than he ever dreamed…   
The heart and soul of making a friend is along the lines of what John F. Kennedy said, ask not what your country can do for you but visa versa… In other words, it's not what you can get but what you can give…   
Another key to instant lifelong friendship is synergy… Synergy is the door opener, the icebreaker if you will…  What do you have in common with your new friend prospect?  For the purposes of this article which is targeted at executive networkers seeking new employment, a good synergy might be, you are both job hunting.

Job Hunting? Dont Take Maybe for an Answer

By John Seraichyk - Browning Associates Job Hunting? Dont Take Maybe for an Answer Job Hunting?
Don’t Take Maybe for an Answer

I am incessantly astounded by the number of execs I speak with that will take the time to painstakingly develop a stellar résumé, submit it to the company of their dreams and rather than initiating an aggressive follow up call; they are typically insulted when nobody calls them back!

Your job search cannot endure without a daily measure of NO’s

If you are presently unemployed and your earning potential is $200k annually; it is costing you $769.00 in lost wages per work-day to conduct your search….Therefore, if you scrutinize your job search strictly from a business perspective, each day of unemployment is sinking your biz to the tune of $4,000.00 per week or $16,000.00 per month!

GOT NO’s?

The length of your job search is not determined by market conditions, salary requirements, geography preferences or restrictions and/or by your specific skill set! No; the time…

Thank God Its Friday

By John Seraichyk - Browning Associates

I have often wondered where the phrase Thank God it’s Friday originates. Or, alternatively Thank Goodness it’s Friday or Terribly Gleeful it’s Friday. Furthermore, who founded Hump Day(this is the middle of the week and the day you need to get through to get closer to the weekend) Furthermore, why are there snooze buttons on alarm clocks?

For nearly thirty years I have interviewed thousands of professionals who sought out the valuable assistance of my organization because they hated their jobs. I call these people Thank God its Fridayers or TGIFers. These are people who wish their lives away working for the weekend or working through the weekend.

Early in my career, I met with a middle-age professional (I’ll call him Jim) who told me he would depress the snooze button on his alarm clock as many as five times before getting out of bed on Monday morning. Jim further explained on the weekends or …

BROWNING ASSOCIATES - Do not hesitate!

 Do not hesitate! As a college professor who teaches Career Development and Success Training, I cannot recommend Browning Associates highly enough. Here’s why. When a new President took over at the University where my husband was a longtime executive, and I was a professor, we were shocked to find we had both lost our jobs.Because of my experience in career education I realized what we needed was top notch executive level help in marketing ourselves. We were grieving from having invested everything then being let go. We were in too much pain and too close to fire to be objective and strategic. We needed to be coached! I contacted John Seraichyk Founder/President the CEO of BROWNING ASSOCIATES . His response was immediate, compassionate and positive. He got our pain and frustration and explained why there was a reason to hope and had the evidence and experience to back up his words.  He quickly connected us to our own personal support team including our executive career coach Bob Jones…
