    What to Do When an Employee Rejects their Performance Review – Ask #HR Bartender

    I received this interesting question via Twitter. Sharlyn! For a post…if employee gets bad performance review and doesn’t agree with it, is there value in going to HR to complain? First off, let me say that I’m a firm believer than an employee’s performance appraisal should not be a shock to them. I don’t know if, in this case, the employee expected a poor performance review or if this was a surprise. However, in my experience, when an employee came to human resources to complain about their performance review, it was usually because their review was a surprise to them. Enough said. Also, in case you’re wondering, let’s briefly cover the legal aspect of this. I reached out to Jonathan A. Segal, a…

    3 Things You Should Always Do Before You Quit Your Job

    Quitting a job is never easy — even if you despise everything about it. But whatever your reason for accepting a new role — a fatter paycheck, more flexible hours, a better culture — you'll want to leave your current position on the best terms possible "You never know when you'll need a recommendation or when your paths may cross again," says career expert Annette Richmond in a recent LinkedIn post.   Here are three things she says you should always do before quitting: 1. Protect yourself. Before you quit, you'll want to make sure you don't have a non-compete agreement in place that will prevent you from accepting your new position, Richmond says. "Not only might your previous employers sue you if you break…

    This Trait Predicts Success Better Than Your IQ

    We all strive to become smarter — whether by changing our daily habits or perusing a new website— with the hope it will make us more successful.  However, the trait that takes you from average to spectacular comes from your measure of cognitive control, not your IQ, says Daniel Goleman, author of "FOCUS: The Hidden Driver Of Excellence," in a recent LinkedIn post.  Cognitive control refers to abilities such as controlling impulses, managing negative emotions, and delaying gratification in pursuit of long-term goals, Goleman explains. He points to studies from the University of Pennsylvania to exemplify the importance of these skills: Students that earned the highest grades weren't necessarily the ones with the highest IQs, but rather those that kept trying despite setbacks…

    23 Daily Habits That Will Make You Smarter

    Getting smarter isn't something that happens overnight. Instead, you have to build your intelligence every day through intentional daily habits. In a recent Quora thread, "What would you do to be a little smarter every single day?", readers shared their advice on good habits you can establish. Here are some simple actions that could help you become a smarter person. 1. Come up with 10 ideas every day. Think about how to reduce poverty, how to solve a daily problem you have, interesting movie ideas, or anything. It doesn't matter what subject your ideas fall into, as long as you're working your brain and your idea muscles. Your list might even lead to a new startup idea or writing subject. —Claudia Azula Altucher 2.…

    8 Secrets To Writing The Perfect Resume

    We know networking is essential today, but it will never replace the resume. A standout resume remains one of the best ways for job candidates to catch the eye of a hiring manager and make a great first impression.  What makes a resume great? ZipRecruiter, a company that allows job seekers to upload their resumes, and small businesses, individual employers, and recruiters looking for candidates to rate those resumes on a scale of one to five stars (one being the lowest, five the highest), recently analyzed three million resumes in its database to determine the correlation between keywords, length, and content and high ratings. "Of course there's no such thing as the perfect resume, but some are closer to perfect than others," says Allan Jones, ZipRecruiter's chief…

    VC: Here's Why We Are Funding More Women Startup Founders

    As we all know by now, the tech industry is overwhelmingly male. And when it comes to women entrepreneurs running VC-backed startups, the numbers are even more abysmal. While about half the small businesses in the U.S. are founded by women, in the tech industry women founders represent less than 7% of startups that get VC funding, according to research from MIT. Business Insider recently looked at 26 of the top venture capital funds in Silicon Valley and found that the percentage of female-founded startups in their portfolios ranged from 19% to a paltry 4%. That creates a spiral effect. With so few women-led startups, that means fewer women-led companies exit with a big acquisition or have a big IPO. VCs like to…

    Life Advice from the Smartest and Wisest Person I Know

    Michael Scriven is smart, wise, and a polymath: He has published in the leading journal in eleven separate disciplines: from philosophy to mathematics, evaluation to parapsychology. He’s also relentlessly practical: with impressive expertise in design of word processors, knives, and sports cars. I got to know Scriven as my Ph.D. adviser at Berkeley and we have remained friends ever since: three decades. This afternoon, I spent three hours interviewing him on the question, “What are your thoughts on living the life well-led? I publish the highlights of that interview as my PsychologyToday.com article today. HERE is the link.

    8 Reasons This Is An Excellent Resume For A Recent College Graduate

    Approximately 1.6 million students in the U.S. graduated from college this year. Some are going into their post-college job search with an extensive resume, while others have no experience whatsoever. It doesn't matter where you fall on the spectrum, as long as your resume catches the recruiter's attention and makes a great first impression in the six seconds they spend reviewing it. To get a clearer picture of what makes a resume stand out, we asked Amanda Augustine, a career expert at TheLadders, an online job-matching service for professionals, to create a sample of an excellent one for a recent grad with some work experience. While your resume may look different, depending on the industry you're in, the one below should serve as a useful…

    VOTE NOW: What Are The World's Best Business Schools?

    Is an MBA costing two years of your life and $150,000 or more really worth it? The question is more controversial than ever, with cheaper online degree programs growing rapidly as well as free online business courses providing important skills. Given powerful new technology and fundraising techniques, it may also be easier to start a business than ever. But with increasing global competition and a tough job market, business school may hold the key to getting ahead, providing specialized knowledge, valuable contacts, and an impressive resume booster. Of course, choosing the right business school makes all the difference. For Business Insider's annual ranking, we are surveying the people who matter most: professionals in diverse fields who have MBAs or who have experience hiring or managing…

    5 Tips for Getting a Job After College Fast

    Getting a job after graduation is not very hard, but finding the one you really want will take some extra effort. Of course you want a well-written resume, but there are several way ways you can ensure your success in landing a better job when you graduate. Here are five tips, why you should try them and where you should start when you do. 1. Get involved with social media LinkedIn is the place you should start if you want to enter the professional working world. The social media platform is nothing special, but it is well-known.

    Why You Should Talk To Yourself More — And How To Do It

    It's not just for crazy people. New research suggests that talking to yourself will help you through your next big project.  Psychologists call it "self-talk," and previous studies have found that self-talk helps improve your willpower and your athletic performance. New research from the University of Illinois finds that how you talk to yourself matters, specifically which pronoun you use. For example, when you try to motivate yourself you could use:  • The first person: "I'm going to crush it!"  • Or the second person: "You're going to crush it!"  The one you use will affect your outcome.  In three experiments, psychology students were asked to write out self-advice by addressing themselves as "I" or "you." In one they were a character in a short story, in another they were completing word puzzles,…

    7 Little Things You Should Quit to be Happy & Successful

    Do you ever wonder if you will ever be truly happy in your life? Do you wonder if happiness is just a hoax and success is an illusion? Do you feel like they don’t really exist? I felt like this a little while ago. At the time, I was making six-figure income, was working for my dream company (Apple) and had a flexible work schedule. In spite of all this, I was miserable. To make things worse one day, my 10 yr old daughter said, “ Mommy you are just not nice when you come back from your job”. That was a wake up call. I wanted to make a change. I wanted to be happy.  I wanted to be a good mom. But I didn’t know…

1. Lemon & Thyme Ricotta Toasts

Ricotta 610x406 Make This Weekend: 25 Easy Labor Day Appetizers

  • 32 oz Ricotta cheese
  • 2 tsp fresh thyme (just the leaves)
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 baguette, thinly sliced
  • 2-3 garlic cloves
  • Olive oil for drizzling

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees, then mix together the ricotta, thyme, lemon, salt, and pepper. Set aside. Slice the baguette into thin slices, then bake for 8-10 minutes until golden brown. Immediately after removing from oven, rub one end of a garlic clove over a baguette slice then drizzle with olive oil. Repeat with the remaining slices. Transfer the ricotta mixture to a pretty bowl, then surround it with the baguette slices. Drizzle a little more olive oil over the top, and sprinkle with salt, pepper, and any remaining thyme and lemon zest.
