Bored at work? Then do something!
by Beverly Jones - Mar, 2014
Boredom isn’t productive. So make some changes! As I waited in a Post Office line, I watched the clerk. She looked to be so deep into the doldrums that she could barely hear her customers. It seemed that, when she finally took in a request, she’d move in slow motion, lethargically searching through stacks of paper with her eyes half closed and her mouth half open. As the minutes ticked on, I became annoyed. T...

by Cara Crotty, Esq. - Mar, 2014
Ever since the OFCCP issued its Final Rules implementing Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act and the Vietnam Era Veterans’ Readjustment Assistance Act in September 2013, federal contractors have been concerned that the OFCCP will use the newly required collection of disability and protected veteran status from applicants as a tool to allege disparate impact on the basis of such protected status. This article will address th...

Similarly Situated - What Does It Mean and Why is it Important?
by Sandra Zeigler, Esq. - Mar, 2014
The determination of who is similarly situated is central to the prosecution and defense of a discrimination case. This is because determining whether discrimination actually occurred is a comparative exercise. Whether in self-audits or in the defense of allegations of discrimination, it is important for contractors to understand how to identify who is similarly situated to whom for purposes of equal opportunity analysis....

Should I Put a Local Address on My Resume?
by Rich Jones - Mar, 2014
I just had a conversation with someone around this very question. As a recruiter, I can tell you that we do look at where someone is located when reviewing his or her resume. Some of us will even screen you out if you’re too far away and we don’t offer relocation (I’ve done it). And it’s that fear of being screened out that leads some folks to put the local address of a friend or family member. I completely get it. However, yo...
Your Interview Questions List: How to Use This Powerful Tool!

Anticipate any likely questions that may be prompted by your resume, LinkedIn profile or other materials the interviewer may have seen. Expect to be asked why you left each job (especially any that were short-term), what you were doing...
Earning Your Marketing Stripes: It’s All About Relationships
by Brian Muys - Mar, 2014
In too many organizations, marketing and public relations are often considered more tactical functions that simply support larger business initiatives. In some instances, higher-cost promotional channels can all too easily be relegated to a secondary, discretionary role, especially during periods of economic uncertainty. First, this means that any given marketing program, however ambitious, must be directly aligned with or...
The Yin and Yang of the Job Interview
by Thea Kelley - Mar, 2014
Interview authentically and strategically. These are the "yin and yang" of good interviewing. Actually, these aren't truly opposites. The real opposite of strategy is randomness, or carelessness, which sometimes comes wrapped in the flag of "just being real." Many job candidates fail to be strategic. They interview in an honest and straightforward way, but without really communicating a unique selling proposition. Th...
