    This Communication Quirk Could Cost You A Promotion

    You know that what you say in meetings with your boss can go a long way toward making them think that you're capable, serious, and ready to take on greater responsibility. What you might not realize is that how you say your idea is almost as important as the idea itself. In a recent post on LinkedIn, author and enterprise performance expert Bernard Marr writes that employees who use "upspeak," or end most of their sentences with a higher pitch (as if they're asking a question), put their promotions at risk by coming across as less confident than others who don't. By turning every statement into a pseudo question, it's as if "we are questioning our own statements and therefore subconsciously tell[ing]…

    Here Are The Salaries Of The Highest-Paid Business School Graduates Of 2013

    An elite MBA might not mean quite as much as it used to, but graduates of top schools still make pretty hefty salaries. For grads with good experience going into highly paid fields like finance and management consulting, the numbers can be truly eye-popping. John Byrne of Poets & Quants, a website focused on top business schools, pored over the salary data released by b-schools to find the top offers from the best schools in the country. These numbers are actually conservative, since they are base salaries that don't include signing bonuses, yearly bonuses, or equity awards. Here are the top 10: Northwestern (Kellogg): $375,000 Pennsylvania (Wharton): $350,000 Columbia Business School: $310,000 Duke (Fuqua): $260,000 Chicago (Booth): $250,000 INSEAD: $247,000*  NYU (Stern): $237,600 Stanford Graduate School of Business: $225,000 Harvard Business School: $222,000** UCLA (Anderson): $200,000  (*INSEAD offers a one-year MBA from which people graduate in December,…

    Watch Jon Stewart Make An On-Air Plea To Hire An Unemployed BU Grad

    If you're looking for a job, you might want to consider going to a live taping of "The Daily Show." At the top of Monday's show, Boston University grad Adam Even Engel got a personal on-air job recommendation from Jon Stewart after telling the host he'd had bad luck finding a job in chemistry during the pre-show Q&A. “I told him I was a recent college grad and asked how to get my Jewish mother off my back about getting a job,” Engel told the university-run news website BU Today. When the show began, Stewart introduced the day's guest and then made a plea on Engel's behalf: If your school is currently looking for a chemistry teacher, I want you to call us. I got…

    Here's The Startling Degree To Which Your Parents Determine Your Success

    Even in America, a tremendous amount of your life success is determined by your parents. Often referred to as the "birth lottery," this concept is nothing new. The basic idea is that some people are born to families that are better off, better educated, and better situated. That matters a lot and puts them at a natural advantage. A new study from the National Bureau of Economic Research details just how big that advantage can be. According to the authors, your parents' income, marriage, and locational choices all have a huge impact on your future. Let's start with income. Not surprisingly, the amount of money people make is strongly predicted by what their parents earn. Up until a parent-household-income threshold of roughly $150,000, adult…

    A Wake-Up Call: Why You’re Just Mediocre and What to Do About It

    Our parents were well-intentioned, I’m sure. As they bubble-wrapped and sugarcoated us, they thought they were doing us a favor. “You’re so special,” they’d say, plucking our cheeks like they were made of memory foam. “You’re mommy’s little angel.” I vividly remember my cheeks blushing as my mother would rave on to her fellow church ladies, “My Heather is the best, smartest, prettiest…” (You catch my drift. Aw, mom…) Most of us were raised to believe we could do anything, be anything. Our parents trumpeted our skills with fanfare and celebration. “Look, little Johnny hit the baseball!” Society whipped on an extra helping of praise with gold stars every time we used the potty and allowances every week we remembered to make…

    Emails Show Apple's Steve Jobs And Google's Eric Schmidt Allegedly Conspired To Screw Over Employees (AAPL, GOOG)

    Apple founder Steve Jobs and Google CEO Eric Schmidt appear to have secretly cooperated to drive down the salaries of tech workers by agreeing not to recruit each other's staff, according to emails uncovered by a class action lawsuit filed in federal court in California. Pando Daily has an excellent deep dive on the suit, which has been going on for years. What's most shocking about the emails is how unambiguous they appear to be, according to the ruling allowing the case to proceed. Jobs and Schmidt exchanged emails to ensure the pact was enforced, and Jobs threatened "war" if he caught Google breaking it by wooing Apple workers over to Google. Apple, Google and the other companies named in the suit have…

    Here's The Secret To Keeping Your Career Fresh

    Kerry Cooper's first job out of college was a gig with McKinsey. Since then, she has worked in everything from venture capital to retail, and today she is CEO of Choose Energy, an online energy marketplace. But Cooper says one thing she learned at McKinsey still sticks with her: keep your career fresh. As Cooper tells the New York Times, a fellow McKinsey employee once told her that she should look for a job every year. "In looking for a job every year you either practically decide that the job you have is good and you keep pushing at it, or you see what's missing by exploring what else is out there," she explains. More importantly, keeping your job hunt open prevents you…

    What 16 Successful People Read In The Morning

    Staying informed is a constant struggle for most of us, let alone people with high-profile, high-pressure jobs. There's usually not time to leisurely read a favorite paper over coffee.  Yet catching up on news is an important part of what's often a very early morning for many of the world's most successful people. Now we would like everyone to read Business Insider in the morning (or the afternoon), but it turns out some very important people have their own favorite sources of news.Warren Buffett starts his days with an assortment of national and local news.

    Voice of Experience: Christina McCaughey, Managing Director, Futures & OTC Clearing Sales, State Street Global Exchange

    This week The Glass Hammer is profiling successful women in the derivatives industry. By Tina Vasquez, Managing Editor Christina McCaughey has had a storied career in the financial services industry, which has included being the go-to expert when futures trading began to migrate away from the floors onto the screen. She has worked for some of the industry’s biggest names across three countries and become a prominent figure in the derivatives industry, but it’s a career that she could have missed entirely. McCaughey came from a family of engineers, so when it was time to enter college, engineering seemed like the clear choice. It didn’t take long for her to realize that engineering wasn’t for her. “I quickly wasn’t happy,” she laughed. After…

    Wait, There’s a National Clean Off Your Desk Day?!

    There seems to be a “national day” for almost everything, from celebrating rubber duckies and bittersweet chocolate to advocating for awareness of the Heimlich maneuver. (Yes, there’s a National Heimlich Maneuver Day, folks.) Last Sunday, January 12th, just happened to be National Clean Off Your Desk Day, and as frivolously ridiculous as it might sound to some, a tidy workspace can do wonders for productivity and peace of mind. (Click here to tweet this thought.) A recent survey by Office Max found that 90 percent of Americans admit that unorganized clutter at home or at work has a negative impact on their life and said their productivity (77 percent), state of mind (65 percent), motivation (53 percent) and happiness (40 percent) are…

    Most Americans Aren't Getting A Raise

    Though the economy is much improved from the lows of the recession, it doesn't seem that way to the long-term unemployed and people who aren't moving forward in their jobs. The majority of Americans had the same or lower wages in 2013 as they did in 2012, and many expect the same this year, according to a survey by financial website MoneyRates.com. The survey of 1,200 American adults found that 56% of respondents did not get a raise in 2013, and 12% of those people had their pay cut. More than half expect stagnating pay or a cut in 2014. What's more, even the workers who got a bump in pay didn't get much. Of those respondents who reported getting a raise…

    How to Jumpstart a Stalled Project

    There comes a point in many projects were momentum just stops. Why does this happen? Well, sometimes we’re paralyzed by uncertainty or a general loss of interest and passion. Other times circumstances are rocky, and the team would rather do anything else than work on the project. Or, we’re overwhelmed by the mountain of to-dos. Although the project stall is a common phenomenon, you can’t allow yourself to fall victim for too long. After all, the last thing you want is for your manager to find out about your lack of progress and put you in the doghouse. You also don’t want him to lose trust that you can manage complex assignments independently. How can you extricate yourself? Seek objectivity You may be…

    The 15 Best Jobs Of 2014

    A new list from U.S. News & World Report offers a comprehensive look at the best jobs of the year. The top 15 occupations are heavily devoted to tech and health care, which shouldn't be too surprising. As the Boomer generation ages, we continue to see an ever-growing need for health professionals. Meanwhile, the tech boom requires a steady supply of skilled employees who can code websites, analyze data, and keep information secure from hackers and malware. In 2014, the top-ranked job is software developer, which jumped seven spots from last year's list. It also marks the first time that the best job on U.S. News' annual list is not in the health-care sector. Software developer tops the list thanks to great job…
