Linda Guild, CEO of The Guild Associates, Inc., has founded TAPP (Talented Alliance of Part-time Professionals) , a membership association created to meet the unique needs of individuals who work part-time and the companies that employ them. TAPP provides current and future part-time employees with resources and expertise available 24/7 that enables them to tap into their full potential. These part-time employment resources include tax and accounting information, part-time employee benefits, motivational webinars, experts on call, a job board dedicated to part-time jobs and internships, assessment tools, and much more. TAPP’s online community provides a venue for powerful, interactive support and solutions.
There is no cost for a basic individual membership; a premium individual membership is $30 for six months.
IT Business Edge is offering a wonderful, no-cost career-planning tool. Although it is entitled IT Career Development Plan, there’s no reason careerists in other fields can’t use it. Users are taken through four phases:
- Time for Self Reflection
- Develop Your Career Plan
- Implement Your Plan
- Establish Your Credibility
Downloadable tools assist in the process:
- Personal Attributes Inventory
- IT Career Path Flowchart
- Personal Training Scorecard
- IT Initiatives Portfolio
To access the downloads, users must complete a registration form that is a bit longer than we’d like, but you need to complete it only once.
