Well, here is a case that contractors can use to remind the OFCCP that what is good for the goose is good for the gander! An Administrative Law Judge recently handed the OFCCP an embarrassing defeat in OFCCP v. VF Jeanswear...

by Debra Wheatman - Oct, 2013
The cover letter remains a critical component of a successful job search despite what you may hear anecdotally. It may be true, however, that a great cover letter will not win you an interview or be the defining factor in getting you the job you want, but it is certainly true that a terribly written or bland cover may earn you an instant rejection from a recruiter or HR representative.

Career Sabotage and Your Comfort Zone
by Georgia Adamson - Oct, 2013
At least once or twice in the past I’ve written about some aspect of career sabotage–that is, when you have sabotaged your own career, not when someone else has done it to you.

Best Way to Have Outstanding References
by J.T. O'Donnell - Oct, 2013
Last week, I thought I had a phone stalker on my cell. I didn't recognize the number and the caller ID had a weird name. Finally, I picked up the phone. It turned out to be the head of HR for a company in NYC doing a reference check on an intern I had 5+ years ago. I was totally caught off-guard.
