Career Planning & Self-Development: Part 2

This article is the second in a two-part series on Career Planning & Self Development.

MushroomLast week, I invited you to ask yourself some foundational questions when planning your next career move. You need to know who you are and what you want, and you need to get curious about the opportunities around you.

But once you know those couple things about yourself, you’re ready to advance to the next level of your career planning!

Fill In the Gaps

Odds are, if you find a listing for your dream job, the required qualifications aren’t going to look like a photocopy of your own resumé. There are probably a few gaps along the path between you and occupational bliss. Whether it’s a certification you don’t have, a degree you never finished, or simply not enough years of related experience, it can be incredibly disheartening to realize you’re still far off from the thing you want.

But there’s good news: You can do something about it! Continue reading

Career Planning & Self-Development: Part 1

I love making plans. There’s something about figuring out what I want and how I’m going to get there that simply excites me. It’s a bit like a puzzle – if I want to get to point A, but I’m way over here at point Q, what’s the best way to close that gap?Video Game Guy 1

For me, it’s a little like playing a video game as a kid. I loved working my way through those old, pixilated games! As an adult, the sense of accomplishment when I put together a smart strategy is the grown-up version of clearing a difficult level in Super Mario Brothers.

It took me a while to realize that not everyone is wired this way.

Perhaps you’re like me and enjoy sitting down with a pen and paper and mapping out a strategy for achieving your future goals. Or, perhaps you’re not like me, and what I just described is your perfect recipe for a panic attack. Either way, when it comes to your career, a little bit of focus and planning can go a long way.

This article is the first in a two-part series where I’ll fill you in on the most important lessons I’ve learned about planning my next career move. In each article, I’ll touch on two major areas that, when all linked together, should help set you on the right path. Continue reading

A Visual History of the L&P Logo

Leggett & Platt has been in business for over a century, but our logo has undergone relatively few changes in that time. The one major change came in the early 1970s, when we moved from a simple “L” to a script typeface. Take a peek through the evolution of our logo!

In the early days, this metal tag was attached to every Leggett product and ultimately became the official logo.

In the early days, this metal tag was attached to every Leggett product and eventually became the official logo. The circle in the design was actually a hole used for fastening the tag to springs and frames. “I love the simplicity of this design,” states Scott Clark, Leggett’s Creative Director. “It’s fascinating how well it holds up–what looked good 100 years ago still looks good today, and that’s not always the case.”

We Know Wire

ShapedWire, part of our L&P Wire Group, has been a leader in the wire industry since the 1960s.

Our products range from flat wire, metallizing, chub wire and clip wire, and aluminum round wire — and don’t quote us, but we may have just broken the record for number of times ‘wire’ was used in one post.

With various sizes and materials, our flat wire can be matched to your specific requirements. We help design wire to fit your applications and work with you to select the right wire for you.

metallizing-product

Metallizing is a commercial process in which a layer of vaporized metal is deposited onto flexible film or paper for packaging applications. The wire we provide is drawn to specific customer specifications.

The food packaging industry uses small metal clips to seal a variety of different products, ranging from cookie dough to breakfast sausage. We’re recognized by the leading packaging equipment manufacturers for superior performance and compatibility. We can produce clip wire in both aluminum and steel!

The aluminum round wire market encompasses a wide range of products and uses, and is a good choice for many applications because of its superior corrosion resistance and light weight.
