Ring in the New Year Right!

We all know that New Year’s Resolutions come and go, and we spend a lot more time making them than actually doing them. Instead of stressing over the whole situation, let’s try and use the energy of the New Year to reflect on what worked and didn’t work in the prior year, and then adjust [...]

Ice to Meet You: Ice Skating Ponds & Outdoor Rinks in NH

Masiello Employment Services is based in Keene, NH, and when you live in a place like this - that is, a beautiful place that can get bitterly cold in the winter - it’s important to find seasonal outdoor activities you enjoy so you don’t hibernate for half the year. Like ice skating. Sure, you can [...]

The Gift of Experience(s)!

Of course, we all love gifts. Doodads, things, items – treasures. It is part of what makes us tick. But let’s face it, none of us *really* needs more stuff from the corner store. This season, we are asking everyone in and around the office to think about giving experiences. Memories that come from doing [...]

With so much to unwrap and discuss, let’s get right to it! Elvis & [...]

Winter in November?

Are you cold yet? We are. This frigid air came just a little too early this year with consistent below freezing temps throughout November. Coupled with the end of daylight savings time, it seems we went full force from autumn into the dead of winter! Ski resorts are opening in the Granite State, and plow [...]

Falling Back – How to Deal With the End of Daylight Savings

On Sunday, November 3rd, most of the country set their clocks back (or fell back) from Daylight-Saving Time (DST). And most of us do not particularly enjoy the results. Days seem way-too-short as we start to see the sunset as early as 4:30 PM. This means no more yard work after the day job and [...]
