Job-seekers may discover that their "perfect" job isn't so ideal. Approximately 25 percent of workers regret accepting a new position within the first year, according to an estimate by the global outplacement agency Challenger, Gray & Christmas Inc.

"There is nothing to gain by staying in a position you regret taking, but there is a lot to lose," ... [full story]

In a Shanghai office building, a visitor from San Diego encountered a roomful of young Chinese, working 12- to 18-hour days - playing online computer games. "The thing it reminded me of was a factory," said Ge Jin.

If I ever get the point where I believe my job was a dead end - that I could do nothing to succeed no matter how hard I tried - I would quit. I would go find another job or figure out a way to create my own business or career opportunity. Women apparently feel the same way. Every year, you read about the swelling ranks of female entrepreneurs and women who take jobs as ... [full story]

It is as easy as a click of a button to send online resumes to multiple employers; however, this technology can have its disadvantages. Job seekers send out as many resumes as possible in hope of getting a response. MRINetwork, a recruitment organization, found that often there is little connection between the job's requirements and the candidate's qualifications. Michael Jalbert, president of MRINetwork, compares today's online boards to the time when job boards were nonexistent. ... [full story]

Nobody will be surprised to learn that American companies are less likely to provide fixed-rate pensions to their workers today than in the past. Everyone knows this has been a trend for the past three decades and that more companies are supporting worker retirements by contributing to 401(k) savings plans. Seems like a bit of a wash on the surface. But not without risks. The Employee Benefit Research Institute recently said that only four in ... [full story]

A high school teacher referred to her as "wildly sophisticated." Nicole Williams identifies with this term and has now turned it into a way of life.

"We are known for taking a traditional business plan and making it more conversational," says Williams. WORKS redefines career as fun and glamorous. Williams explores career as a life outside of the 9-to-5 office job. ... [full story]

In the United States, we like and admire people who make money. So you would think people would like Phil Ruffin, an industrialist whose $165 million investment nine years ago is now worth $1.2 billion. But even with $1 billion in profits in his pocket, Ruffin can't buy a friend in Las Vegas. Ruffin's sale of the New Frontier hotel and casino in Las Vegas will cause it to close on July 15, leaving 900 ... [full story]

Talk to any business owner - from one at the tiniest company to one at a giant corporation - and you'll find out that health care benefits is the one workplace issue that gives everyone the frights. They would be foolish not to worry about the rising costs of providing health care. Health care is often the most expensive employee benefit and it only makes sense that trying to control its cost is a practical ... [full story]

The poll by the consulting firm Blessing White reports that 56 percent of workers say they seldom or never share their career plans with their employers. And, the pollsters seemed surprised. What?
