by Cara Yates Crotty, Esq. - Apr, 2014
When thinking about the new developments in the OFCCP’s jurisdictional dispute with TRICARE network providers, the old adage about March weather came to mind. (The crazy spring weather we are experiencing probably also had something to do with prompting the analogy). In case you are not familiar with this ongoing saga, let me provide some history.

Multi-Prong Approach to Changing the Culture of Self-Identifying as an IWD
by Debra Milstein Gardner - Apr, 2014
In this article I use the terms “individuals with a disability” (IWD - IWDs) or “persons with a disability” (PWD – PWDs) interchangeably. Before we can expect individuals with a disability to openly communicate, through the self-identification process, their disability and possibility a need for an accommodation, we must show them that the information will not be viewed or used in a negative way.

When Are You Too Old to Take an Internship?
by Adrienne Erin - Apr, 2014
Finding a job is one of the steps that many adults must take once they finish their education. However, getting that job is another matter. You may have gotten your bachelor’s degree, but that’s no longer a guarantee for a job offer. Even if you’re switching careers, the work experience you had in the past may be inapplicable now. Then there’s the nasty Catch-22 present with many jobs: it’s listed as entry-level but require...

Why Your Executive Resume and LinkedIn Profile Should NOT Be Identical
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Apr, 2014
It's such a commonplace mistake, and it is one that is incredibly easy for job seekers to make. After all, LinkedIn looks like a great site for inputting your resume data. Yet, if your LinkedIn page is just a copy of your resume, you are actually making a huge miscalculation.

Are You a Workaholic? Balancing Work and Home
by Caroline Dowd-Higgins - Apr, 2014
To say that my life has been hectic over the past several years is an understatement – I've always thrived in a fast-paced environment where I'm moving at break-neck speed. However, when I started feeling chronically overwhelmed, and friends and family started using my name in the same sentence as the 'W' word – workaholic – I decided I needed to take a closer look at my work/life balance to determine whether my schedule was...
