If you’ve read my blog before, you know that I’m definitely not in the millennial-bashing camp. Why am I always so bullish on this generation? Because if you look past the stereotypes, you quickly see that mill...

This year is shaping up to be an interesting one for HR compliance. The most buzz, it seems, is occurring around paid sick leave. In his 2015 State of the Union address, President Obama asked the U.S. Congress to pass national legislation granting American workers the right to paid sick days when they or their family members get sick, or to deal with sexual assault and domestic abuse. Paid sick leave is another benefit that...

by Robin Schlinger - May, 2016
Many technical resumes suffer because engineers, developers, researchers, and other technical job applicants have trouble communicating what they do. Many of them are more at home drawing a diagram than writing; and many are used to communicating with their peers at a level where a hiring manager or recruiter is simply lost.

Of course, it’s really not quite that simple....

  Nature or Nurture: Can You Learn Entrepreneurial Skills?
by Alexandra Levit - May, 2016
You’ve probably heard that most businesses fail, but the reasons why are not always clear. Lack of managerial expertise may be one factor.
