    Why You Should Never Let Your Employees Know You’re Stressed

    When you’re stressed, it’s nearly impossible to hide it from those around you. But if you’re a manager, it’s imperative that you do. The New York Times' Adam Bryant recently interviewed Lisa Falzone, CEO of Revel Systems, a maker of point-of-sale payment systems for restaurants and retailers, about leadership and management. Falzone said one big thing she’s learned over the years is that your attitude and emotions rub off on your employees, which is why it’s so important to maintain composure in front of them. “I didn’t realize this so much when I started, but everything stems from you,” she says. “If I’m ever stressed, I try to either not show it to my employees, or I go work in my office for a little while.” When…

    Here's Why You Should Always File Your Taxes, Even If You Made Pennies Last Year

    The IRS tax-filing deadline is creeping closer, so now is the time to get any of those lingering questions answered. To help with that, U.S. News & World Report released a list by certified public accountant Lisa Greene-Lewis of the five most frequently asked tax questions. In general, people most want to know which documents they need to have, when they need to file, and what benefits and deductions are available for different family situations. One of the most common questions is particularly important, and applies to a lot of part-time or low-income earners: "I didn't make much money last year — do I still need to file my taxes?" Greene-Lewis says the answer is yes. Even if your total income fell below…

    23 Incredibly Successful People Who Failed At First

    Rejection can feel devastating, but you shouldn't let it crush you. Some of the world's most successful people have failed — sometimes more than once. We've put together a list of highly successful people, from movie stars to scientists, who experienced massive failure before they found fame and fortune. Weaker people might have given up. Instead, these folks remained focused on their goals.  Scroll down to see the underdogs who went on to change the world.Winston Churchill was estranged from his political party over ideological disagreements during the "wilderness years" of 1929 to 1939. At the outbreak of World War II on Sep. 3, 1939, Churchill was appointed to the British Admiralty, thus ending his "exile." The next year, he was elected prime minister at the…

    Impress the Boss and Kickoff Your Career With These Internships Dos and Don’ts

    You’ve landed the internship of your dreams, or the one you need to complete the degree you’ve financed through student loans. This is the last opportunity for real-world work experience before entering the real world of work. The internship, paid or unpaid, can catapult you into a rewarding career or torpedo one before it starts. Think of it as an audition. A chance to show off skills you learned in the classroom and represent your college or university to the company that has graciously offered to house you for a brief period of time. There are a lot of opportunities to succeed, and just as many to fail, during your internship. Follow these dos and don’ts for internship success: 1. Do (over)dress the part You…

    4 Ways Employers Can Benefit From A Job Fair

    Contrary to popular belief, career fairs are not dead. In fact, they're alive and well — and employers of all sizes and specialties find them extremely useful.  Here are a few ways employers can benefit from attending a job fair: 1. You gain access to a large number of candidates in a one-stop environment. In the four to five hours of a career fair, an employer can meet with dozens of candidates per representative, says Michael Petro, an assistant director in the University of Connecticut's Center for Career Development. "Recruiters and managers get the chance to have a face-to-face interaction with candidates that are interested in their organization. For many, the career fair can be an initial screen of talent and numerous employers will decide to…

    What Careers Would These Fairy Tale Characters Have In Real Life?

    This post is sponsored by Beyond.com.  In fairy tales, no one worries about getting a job. Cinderella is too busy being married to a prince to think about rent. The Evil Queen is more concerned with getting rid of Snow White than with earning a paycheck. But what if fairy tale characters lived in the real world? That’s the question asked by Beyond.com, a career network that helps job seekers connect with employers, create resumes, research salaries, and identify their skills. Consider the possibilities: Cinderella was resourceful and stylish. Rumpelstiltskin had "entrepreneur" written all over him. Take a look at the career portfolios for six fairy tale characters to see what kinds of jobs they could have had in the real world.FIND OUT more about Sponsor Posts Cinderella: Tired…

    International Women’s Day: The Power of Improving Women’s Standing

    By Tina Vasquez Each year on March 8, the world celebrates International Women’s Day (IWD), a time to reflect on progress that’s been made and also, shine a bigger spotlight on the battles women continue to face, including poverty and access to education. In honor of IWD, Catalyst released a powerful new report that gathers information from around the world, exploring women’s status through the lens of three global concepts: shifting demographics, improving education, and stalled progress toward equality for women. The Ripple Effect Emily Troiano, author of Catalyst’s Women in the World report and Senior Director of the organization’s Information Center, says that that the idea behind the report was to synthesize a great deal of research in hopes of providing answers…

    Ask These Interview Questions to Find the Right Workplace

    It’s hard enough finding a job in today’s economy, but finding the right job for you can be even harder. It’s rare to find that job immediately, particularly for members of GenY facing competition for entry-level jobs. If you haven’t found that job yet, you’re probably faced with the question: Is it more important to find a good position at a company that’s wrong for you, or a position that isn’t right at the perfect company? If it’s a company that appreciates your hard work, reflects your values and rewards success, take the latter option. In the long run, you’ll have more opportunities to develop your career. For GenY, picking the right workplace is often more important than the position itself. (Click here…

    5 Steps to Dealing with Bullies at Work

    Bullies have always been among us. The sad truth is that most of us have experienced a boss, supervisor, or co-worker who has treated us with disdain, contempt, or worse. Some of us have been verbally attacked and even threatened with physical violence in our workplaces. Even sadder, perhaps, is the fact that few of us had the willingness to complain or report these activities, and simply remained silent in the face of attacks because we were afraid or just wanted to keep our job. So, the bullies kept up their behavior until we quit or asked for another assignment. We don’t have to do that anymore, and many employers are adopting safe workplace codes that feature bully-free zones at work. But we…

    Thankful for What You Have? – A HR Comparison Between US and UK

    While in the U.K., I made some interesting observations with the help of the brilliant Lieven Lambrecht, a European HR veteran at First Data Corporation: European workers are jealous of American workers because the U.S. has so many more job opportunities, and they are attainable if people have the right skills and interview well. What may appear to be a dead-end job can actually lead somewhere. American workers don’t have to fork over half their income in taxes, and employers actually care about developing their people. European HR professionals are jealous of American HR professionals because we have to deal with so much less legal red tape, and our jobs are more scalable.

Originally called International Working Women’s Day, it focuses on respect and appreciation toward women to celebrate women’s economic, political, and social achievements. The United Nations encourages its members to recognize March 8 as a day for women’s rights and world…

    I Spent More Than A Year Dressing As Hello Kitty In Times Square, And It Was Surreal

    In 2012, after working as a photographer in Latin America for the better part of a decade, Joana Toro moved to New York to study English. Toro soon found herself in need of extra money, which led her roommate Marcela to introduce her to the semi-legal world of Times Square street performers. She was captivated by the mostly immigrant performers, who make a living by dressing as iconic characters, posing for pictures with tourists, and asking for tips. “It was shocking at first to see Mickey Mouse did not speak English and was an immigrant from Mexico,” Toro told the New York Times. “ ... It was surreal. A paradox.” Soon after her introduction, Toro took up her own costume. For a year and…

    An IQ Expert Says The SAT Changes Aren't A Big Deal

    College Board officials made waves yesterday when they announced the first major changes to the SAT since 2005. The overhaul will bring scoring back to a 1,600-point scale, eliminate penalties for wrong answers, and make the essay section optional. Arcane vocabulary words will be replaced with ones people might actually use. The modifications have been described as "sweeping revisions" and a "fundamental rethinking." But intelligence expert Douglas Detterman thinks they aren't a big deal. "The changes are relatively minor," said Detterman, a professor emeritus at Case Western Reserve University and founder of the scientific journal Intelligence. "I don't think it will change much." Detterman is concerned with the "psychometrics" of the SAT — the academic term for what the test measures and how it does…

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.
