    Here Are The 10 Most Common Mistakes On Tech Resumes

    Resumes are always a challenge, but tech resumes are a beast of their own. In one page, you've got to impress these huge companies and explain why they need to hire you without sounding too cocky. We've rounded up some of the most common mistakes on tech resumes. Read up and avoid these blunders. 1. Handing in a five-page resume Kudos for being able to fill up five pages with past internships and odd jobs, but these resumes are skimmed in about 15 seconds. Help yourself out by making sure the stuff they actually see is the most valuable. Source: Forbes 2.

    Why You Need To Know Your Number Before You Go Into A Salary Negotiation

    With ample focus and practice — and realistic goals — anyone can become a good negotiator. At least that’s what negotiation expert Kim Keating claims in "Lean In For Graduates," the latest edition of Sheryl Sandberg’s popular manifesto for working women. The new book, released earlier this month, targets recent graduates entering the job market. It includes the Facebook COO’s original text, as well as six additional essays by other career experts. In Keating’s chapter, which focuses on salary negotiation, she offers four "simple steps" for helping you reach your compensation goals in your first job and beyond. Our favorite: Do your homework, on them and you. She says in order to successfully negotiate your salary, you’ll need to gather information about both…

    Why Powerful Men Dominate Conversations While Women Keep Quiet

    A curious thing happens to women as they climb the career ladder: They clam up.Katty Kay and Claire Shipman write in their new book "The Confidence Code" that "the more senior a woman is, the more she makes a conscious effort to play down her volubility." Men, on the other hand, typically respond to increasing levels of authority by becoming more verbose.It's part of the double bind that professional women continue to find themselves in. If they don't speak up, negotiate their pay, or otherwise promote themselves, then they lag behind men in promotion and pay rates. If they do act as aggressively as men, they are disliked or called a "bitch.""The more a woman succeeds, the worse the vitriol…

    The Average Bank Regulator Makes More Money Than The Average Banker

    American Enterprise Institute (AEI) scholar Paul Kupiec has published a research report comparing the average salaries of regulators and bankers. Politico's Ben White points to it in today's Morning Money.  Kupiec's research found that the average compensation at federal bank regulators was much better than private sector bankers in 2012.   Kupiec breaks it down in an opinion piece for the Wall Street Journal:  The average compensation at the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC), the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. (FDIC) and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) exceeded $190,000 in 2012. The staff at the Federal Reserve is likely even better compensated, but the Fed refuses to release employee salaries. You might think high-paying jobs at these agencies require special skills. Not…

    Barbara Corcoran: Being Too Passionate Is Bad For Business

    Real estate mogul Barbara Corcoran has seen a lot of passionate entrepreneurs come and go on ABC's reality pitch show "Shark Tank." She's learned that overexcitement can drive a business into the ground. "Too much passion blinds an entrepreneur, just like a guy who's madly in love," Corcoran tells Business Insider. "He can't see clearly, he can't listen, and he knows for sure that the girl is 'absolutely perfect!' Being too wrapped up in a love affair with your new business idea doesn't allow you to change what's wrong." Corcoran, who recently launched online class "Fundamentals of Entrepreneurship: Pitching Your Business and Yourself" with Skillshare, first realized that being too passionate could be bad for business when she invested in a young, aspiring entrepreneur.…

    Avoid These Corporate Event Planning Pitfalls to Create an Eye-Popping Event

    When our parents were starting their careers, “event planner” wasn’t even a job. Even 20 years ago, the perception of an event planner was someone who tasted wedding food choices and decided whether yellow lilies can go with pink roses (debatable). Now, lots of companies have event planners on speed dial. But regardless of your role in your business, you could be called upon to plan an event — and it involves a lot more skill than an eye for color. Planning a corporate event involves budgeting, scheduling, acquiring permits, coordinating bus charters or other transportation, courting and arranging speakers, lining up alternate speakers, configuring location support (like electricity, wifi and other utilities), arranging decor, establishing emergency contingency plans and more. The event…

    Why You're Annoying Your Colleagues

    You’re never late for meetings. You also chip in for every co-worker’s birthday or baby shower that comes along. That’s why you consider yourself a good colleague – certainly not like that annoying person in the cubicle next to you.But what you may not realize is that you are indeed that person. The person who annoys teammates with rude, sloppy, underhanded and clueless behavior.So let’s look at what seems to be getting you in the most trouble:Other rude behavior that most irks colleagues is gabbing about personal issues on your cellphone. A Jive Software study finds that 65% of workers are annoyed by someone having loud or private conversations in a public area. The buzzing and beeping of your phone signaling incoming texts or…

Curiosity "Entrepreneurship starts by asking questions. Why is there not a product that helps me do X? How could we build a product that better solves the target audience's needs? Could technology make this easier, more efficient, more sustainable, or more affordable?

    6 Super Successful People Share Their Biggest Career Setbacks

    Managing a winning career in today’s turbulent and uncertain economy depends on your ability to hit the curveballs that’ll inevitably come your way, says Peter Guber, co-owner of the Los Angeles Dodgers, in a recent LinkedIn post. It’s about not knowing when, where, or how the ball will drop — "but anticipating the unexpected and then being nimble and agile enough to adapt to whatever is thrown at you before you strike out," he writes. Guber’s post was part of LinkedIn’s most recent "Influencers" editorial package, for which the social networking site asked the top minds across fields to write original posts on the topic of "Career Curveballs."

    Starting a Business? Here’s How to Avoid the Burnout Trap

    Starting a business is an arduous task and not for the faint of heart. With three-quarters of startups doomed to fail, you’re facing an uphill battle. New entrepreneurs can typically expect their fair share of stress, a few sleepless nights and any form of personal life to fall by the wayside as they work towards success. But that’s not holding you back, because you know you can power through it. You know the old story: Put in your time now and reap the benefits when you’re successful. Work yourself to the bone at first, then you’ll be able to relax later on. Except it doesn’t work like that. Clients, customers, business partner and investors buy into the workaholic you — because that’s…

    The Best Luggage For Your Money

    Whether you're traveling for business or pleasure, you're going to need the right bag to get everything where you're going. But before you even start packing, picking a suitcase is the crucial first decision. We turned to the experts at FindTheBest to help us determine the best, most affordable luggage in three popular categories: hard-side, soft-side and carry-on.  Travel product managers at FindTheBest picked the luggage based on price, size, warranty and durability.

    This Year Capped The Deadliest 3-Year Period For Sherpas In Everest History

    A Mount Everest avalanche last week that killed 16 Sherpas — professional Nepalese mountaineers paid to assist recreational climbers — caps off the worst three-year period for Sherpas in Everest history, Outside Magazine reported. The loss last week was so big that Sherpas have abandoned this year's climbing season. The tragedy has also shed light on the dangers of being a Sherpa even as the climb becomes safer for Westerners. Outside notes that 4 Sherpas died last year and 3 died the year before. That's in addition to another Sherpa who died earlier this year before last week's avalanche, making the total loss far higher than any other 3-year period. A Sherpa's job on Mount Everest is statistically more dangerous than America's most…
