We Will Miss You Joe

By |March 23, 2021|Categories: Job Seeker News|

There are times when people enter your life for what may seem like a relatively short time, but the impact they made will be long remembered. WHW Board Member, Joseph Formichelli, was such a person, and it is with great sadness that we announce his passing on Sunday, March 14th, 2021. We will miss Joe, but we will not forget the lessons he taught. Show up early, work hard, have a plan, think big and go the extra mile when you can. I think if he were here now, he would say, “It’s time to end this and get back to work.” Thanks Joe…we’re on it!

Knowing we are not alone in our vocational journey…to meaningful work, societal contribution, personal belonging, and more, often makes the way forward less daunting.

Change Does Not Change

By |December 5, 2020|Categories: Job Seeker News|

I’ve heard it said that the only thing you can count on is change. It’s ironic that the one thing in life that is certain often makes us uncomfortable because of its uncertainty. Most people prefer familiarity; we like to be able to make our plans based on some degree of predictability. But change is inevitable and so we must not only accept it as part of life, but we may be better off if we learn to embrace and leverage change in order to obtain our personal and professional goals.

The challenge that was issued, to the then three-year-old National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) on May 25, 1961, put into motion one of the most amazing feats in history. Before the decade was done, a man would land on the moon and safely return to Earth. And how exactly was that possible? With a clear vision. Without vision, it becomes very difficult for an organization, individual or group to succeed. Vision provides direction and is an essential ingredient to success.
