by Jacqui Barrett-Poindexter - Apr, 2014
The rules of job search have changed; in fact, some might say they have taken a 180-degree turn in recent years, particularly with the advent of social networking. The waters have become murkier than ever as career journalists vie for the attention of readers with click-generating headlines that are not necessarily in careerists’ best interests.

by Bob Roth - Apr, 2014
After four years of preparation and expending much energy in conducting the search for a job, college students will find it very difficult to reject an offer of employment.

by Barbara Safani - Apr, 2014

by Jacqui Barrett-Poindexter - Mar, 2014
It is amazing the patience you learn when you don’t want to be patient. Buying a house and landing a new job are two life-altering events where your patience is tested, sometimes to exhaustion.

by Beverly Jones - Mar, 2014
Boredom isn’t productive. So make some changes! As I waited in a Post Office line, I watched the clerk. She looked to be so deep into the doldrums that she could barely hear her customers.

Similarly Situated - What Does It Mean and Why is it Important?
