"I haven't been able to find a job in a year and a half," Larry started out the ... [full story]

Love is in the air. That is in the workplace. Due to longer hours in the office and less time to go out and meet potential dates, professional men and women may seek relationships with co-workers. Although both might have similar interests and see each other on a daily basis, it can be challenging to be co-workers as well as lovers. Office dating isn't highly encouraged by companies, especially if the relationship ends sour. Careerbuilder.com ... [full story]

A lesbian gets disillusioned because her company offers pet insurance - even for unusual pets such as pigs, rats and snakes - but doesn't offer same sex domestic partner benefits.

Computers with online access can be an easy distraction; however, employees may want to concentrate more on work instead of surfing the Internet at the office. You never know who or what may be watching.

A simple thank-you card shows good manners, but it could also help job candidates gain an edge in the interview process. Eighty-eight percent of respondents said a post-interview thank-you note could improve a candidate's chances, according to a survey by Accountemps, a staffing service, which polled 150 senior executives. But less than half of all job-seekers take the time to send a card. Although many candidates choose not to send thank-you notes, this recent survey ... [full story]

A healthy workplace requires that mutual respect exist between management and the individuals doing the work. Productivity, efficiency and profitability depend on that respect. Yet, sometimes, mutual respect is forgotten. That seems to be what happened at the Orange County Register when the newspaper's editor circulated a memo in early August that layoffs were imminent. The memo documents the business challenges the Southern California newspaper is having in hanging on to readers and advertising dollars. ... [full story]

However, only 16 percent of the respondents had an official policy against tattoos and piercings at their companies. Mark Oldman, Vault's co-founder and co-president, says there ... [full story]

Rowena Paz's parents did everything they could to help her land a good job after college. They edited her resume, suggesting experience she should play up or cut out. Her mother called regularly to remind Paz, 21, to get enough sleep before interviews. Her father coached her with interview questions and drove her to three job interviews in Los Angeles, because "driving in Los Angeles is tension-filled."   KEEPING CLOSE - Cathy Huett helps her daughter ...

It's 3 p.m. and you have two more hours of work. As you stare at the computer, you begin to feel sluggish and want to take a nap. You start yawning and grab some caffeine to finish the day.

Maybe not in a major magazine piece, but certainly we anticipated that she would be expressing those doubts in private to her closest confidants. That's the way the world works. People take jobs every day and then regret them the first ... [full story]
