by Bob Roth - Apr, 2010
Many students enter college every year and select a major that may not lead directly to a job that is in demand and pays a decent starting salary. Since students usually want to leave home after graduation, live on their own, have some fun, buy a new car and begin to pay back their college loans, that should be a concern to both students and parents alike. Spending all of that time in college and paying all of that money onl...
The Whole Person
by Nan S. Russell - Apr, 2010
Henry Ford is reported to have quipped, "Why is it that I always get the whole person when what I really want is a pair of hands?" The 21st century version doesn't sound quite like that, but its essence prevails in plenty of workplaces. The functional equivalent of Ford's thinking is housed in statements from supervisors, managers, and coworkers like: "What do you mean her kid is sick again, and I have to do her work?" "I k...

by Judi Perkins - Apr, 2010
I wrote the column below two years ago, but that’s irrelevant, because the situation continues. I tend to run it every few months, this time because I’m not only seeing it in cover letters, but several of us were discussing it on FB this week.

“Any Clues, Sherlock?” Uncovering the Hidden Job Market
by Dawn Lennon - Apr, 2010
Remember the old joke about the little boy whose parents took him to a psychiatrist because they worried he was too optimistic? The psychiatrist took him into a room piled high with horse manure. Instead of recoiling, the boy ran to the pile and began digging frantically. His reason: “So much manure. There must be a pony in here somewhere.” You have to dig to find hidden job opportunities.
