    The current issue of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences reports that an approach to human genome editing, a gene therapy, may "provide a viable path toward a permanent cure for AIDS and a means to vaccinate against other pathogenic viruses.” My PsychologyToday.com article today explores the issues likely to derive as gene therapy becomes more of a reality.

    6 Job Search Tips to Fill an Employment Gap

    When you’re searching for a job, the fact that you’re currently unemployed might weigh on you as you consider what potential employers will think about the time you’ve spent out of the workforce. If you’re out of work and want to demonstrate you’ve spent your time wisely during that period, there are several things you can do. Here are six job search tips that can help you use your employment gap to your advantage. 1. Volunteer Volunteering your time to help others in your community is a considerate way to spend your time while you’re out of work.

    Balancing Work Demands and Priorities – Ask #HR Bartender

    Employee burnout, work-life balance, and overall employee well-being are huge topics of conversation right now. A lot of people will be able to relate to this reader note: I feel used. I’ve been at my job for just over a year. My boss is aware of my work ethic and has enthusiastically expressed satisfaction of our department’s accomplishments. My peers say they don’t know how I do it. I know how: I work day and night. I sacrifice family and friends to meet the company’s ever increasing demands. I’ve work a minimum of 65 hours per week since Day One. I’ve asked for qualified help in the form of at least two degreed experienced professionals. My manager hired a part-time high school…

    Here’s How Much Money People Need To Earn To Feel Successful

    What makes you feel successful?  Maybe it's getting promoted or accomplishing a difficult task. Perhaps it's a sense of fulfillment in your personal life or satisfaction at work. We all associate success with different things, and, according to a new CareerBuilder study, a six-figure salary isn't always one of them. The survey, conducted online within the U.S. by Harris Poll on behalf of CareerBuilder, asked 3,372 workers and 2,188 hiring and human resource managers what salary they needed to earn to feel successful. A majority (55%) said less than $70,000 a year, which is fairly realistic when considering the average American salary is $46,000. CareerBuilder broke the results down and found that 63% of women and 47% of men who participated in the survey said they could…

    One Simple Change to Live a Happy and Empowered Life

    “Be yourself, everyone else is already taken” – Oscar Wilde For many years I wrote in secret. I would only put pen to paper when the lights were dim, when everyone around me was asleep. Also, I wrote when no one was home, I made sure that I was alone because I didn’t want to be seen. I didn’t want to be questioned and I didn’t want anyone interested in what I was doing. In hiding, I filled up journals with words of heart-break, poetry, love, laughter, inspiration, anything that was bubbling to the surface. Those notebooks were mirrors of my truth. I threw them out. I violently ripped out the ink covered pages. I was terrified of anyone reading them. I worried what they would…

    Meet The Woman Who Cuddles With Strangers For $60 An Hour

    "Let's hold hands and cuddle up on the couch, or listen to some soft music while we curl up in your bed — I am happy to be the big spoon or the little spoon." This is one of the first things you'll read when you visit Samantha Hess' website, Cuddle Up To Me. At the age of 30, Hess is a professional cuddler. For $60 an hour, she'll intimately snuggle with strangers of all types, and bring them one-on-one cuddle time without the complications of a relationship. The idea came to her in 2012, when she read an article about a guy with a "Free Hugs" sign at a local Saturday market. Another man stood next to him with a "Deluxe…

    Brilliant Management Advice From LinkedIn's Billionaire Founder

    The days of lifetime employment at a single company are long gone, and the trust between employers and employees is broken. Companies welcome new hires into their "family," with the caveat that they can be fired at any time for any reason. Employees profess loyalty but leave the minute a competitor offers a better job offer. This dishonest relationship, argues LinkedIn cofounder Reid Hoffman, is causing companies to lose their most valuable people at dangerous rates. In the new book "The Alliance: Managing Talent in the Networked Age," Hoffman and entrepreneurs Ben Casnocha and Chris Yeh explain how employers can attract and retain the best employees through the formation of alliances where everyone wins. The authors created a presentation outlining their book's main principles, which…

    17 Things Successful People Never Say

    Over 2,500 years ago, philosopher and poet Lao Tzu taught that our words become actions, which eventually become our destiny. In first century Greece, historian and essayist Plutarch declared that a speaker's state of mind, character, and disposition are exposed through their words. And Napoleon Hill, the twentieth century father of personal success literature, asserts that words plant the seed of either success or failure in the mind of another. "Across the planet, sages insist that words are potent and should be chosen and spoken with care, for they are 'the most powerful drug used by mankind,' as
 Rudyard Kipling warns," says Darlene Price, president of Well Said, Inc., and author of "Well Said! Presentations and Conversations That Get Results." "If they're right, it stands to…

    The 3 Biggest Mistakes You're Making With Your LinkedIn Photo

    Before anyone reads a single word of your LinkedIn profile, they've already formed an opinion of you. That's because the first thing recruiters see is your photo, and it can be the difference between someone clicking through to your profile, or not. In a recent LinkedIn post, James Caan, CEO of Hamilton Bradshaw Group, noted that a LinkedIn profile with a professional photo "can make or break you." Whether you're currently job searching or hoping to maintain professional connections, LinkedIn serves a valuable tool to gain traction in the corporate world. But if you fail to choose a strong photo, your profile will quickly be passed over and forgotten. Here three major missteps you might be making that keep you from catching…

    There's A Major Revolution In The Book Industry That's Letting Novelists Make A Living

    NPR reported Friday that authors are increasingly able to make a better living for themselves by ditching big-name publishers and selling their books themselves through Amazon. Self-publishing used to be associated with failure. But that stigma is going away as many authors say they're making more money through self-publishing than their counterparts doing it the traditionally more accepted way, according to NPR. The NPR story came a few weeks after the novelist Michael Stephen Fuchs (brother of BI Senior Editor Erin Fuchs) wrote a post on his blog explaining his positive experience with self-publishing. Fuchs published his first two books with Macmillan, but he didn't make a living from writing until he began self-publishing his works through Amazon's Kindle Direct Publishing, according to an appreciative open letter…

    If You Want To Be Rich, Don't Get An MBA

    In her book, "The MBA Bubble," Mariana Zanetti, an MBA graduate of IE Business School in Spain, argues that getting an MBA is a waste of time and money. The following has been excerpted from the book with her permission. The first thing I am going to say about wealth is that many authors who write about prosperity and wealth make it clear: A job will not make you rich. If you want to be wealthy, at some moment of your life, you will have to create a source of income other than your salary. This is an evident and crushing reality: If you sell your time to others, you will quickly reach a limit in your capacity to generate income. In his book "Rich Dad, Poor Dad," Robert Kiyosaki said that the…

Passion vs. Profit: Ladies, It’s Time to Get What You’re Worth Today

0

There are many reports of how women and men differ when it comes to asking for what they deserve in the job market, and it’s often said that we women accept less than what we’re worth. But why?

Some might say we’re simply less aggressive than men when it comes to negotiating or making the ask, or we don’t even know the tangible value of our skills. (And, I get it: Some of us have no problem with this. We strategically get what we’re worth or hustle to make up the difference for what we don’t get. But too many of us don’t.)

One NPR reporter brings up a different side of this coin by exploring the link between our choices in major or skill-building with our career choices. Lisa Chow recalls interviewing Georgetown University economist Anthony Carnevale on the subject and finding that women are “overrepresented among majors that don’t pay very well (psychology, art, comparative literature) and underrepresented in lots of lucrative majors (most fields in engineering).” She continues to report that even when women choose high-paying majors, they often don’t choose high-paying jobs.
