Why Business and Personal Have to Mix
by Annemarie Segaric - Feb, 2009
We've all heard that saying before: keep your personal life out of the office and leave your work at work. I don't know about you, but that never really worked for me. I tried to separate the two. I really did. I just never did it that well. I know some of you out there are much better at compartmentalizing things than I am. But doesn't it take a lot of energy to keep your life so separate? When you're going to a job ...
The New Dance
by Nan S. Russell - Feb, 2009
Poor Pluto. Stripped of its planetary status by the International Astronomical Union and reclassified as a "dwarf planet," two years ago, Pluto's demotion heralds new rules for planet classification.

by Jeanne Knight - Feb, 2009
Congratulations! You have been called for a second interview. That’s a great sign that a potential employer is interested in you. But it doesn’t mean you’ve secured the job, yet. You are likely one of two or more candidates asked to return for a follow-up interview, so don’t let down your guard.

Yet the nearer we come to a state of realism concerning our strengths and weaknesses, as well as our problems and our opportunities, the better our chances of attaining our career goals.
