Salary Negotiation Trends
by Georgia Adamson - Feb, 2014
It used to be that we said, “The first person who mentions a number [for salary] loses.” Is that still true today? Not according to Liz Ryan, whose article on Forbes titled “How to Negotiate A Job Offer” labels that advice as old-school thinking–true maybe as recently as 1995 but not anymore. As Ryan says, “For the most part, job offers today are surprising on the low side, if they’re surprising at all. Once a lowball offe...
Get Noticed with a Resume Focused on Your Achievements
by Mindy Thomas - Jan, 2014
The number one fatal flaw in nearly every resume I review is that they are written in what I refer to as the “80s” style. By this I mean that every job and every “given” responsibility is listed in a bulleted format. Are you telling your career story in this way? If you are nodding your head yes, then stay with me because I promise to provide solid information to help clarify how to tell your readers (the hiring folks)...

Affirmative Action by Default - Achievements without Trying
by Debra Milstein Gardner - Jan, 2014
Affirmative Action (AA) has been around for more than 60 years and it has been demonstrated that there have been advancements in the employment of minorities and women associated with affirmative action. Therefore we might argue that, YES, affirmative action is taking place and we are seeing women and minorities make headway in the workforce. HOWEVER, it is unclear whether the contractor's AA efforts are influencing these su...

by Ahmed Younies - Jan, 2014
This first part of three, addresses the enforcement practices in 2013 and what it means for 2014. Let's begin with some of the highlights from 2013 that give us an idea of what makes the OFCCP tick: The OFCCP in general has focused on what it calls "systemic discrimination", in selection and hiring and particularly paid attention in 2013 to non-traditional victims.

Contract Compliance in the Context of Transgender Discrimination
by Sandra Zeigler, Esq. - Jan, 2014
I recently received, from former OFCCP colleagues, a copy of an article posted on Buzzfeed.com on December 4, 2013. The headline read, "Federal Official Refuses to Say Whether Office is Protecting Trans Workers." Apparently, the only response the agency was willing to offer was a reiteration that, "OFCCP follows Title VII precedent in everything." The purpose of this article is to shed some light on what that response may actu...

Is the OFCCP Just Making Things Up As It Goes Along?
by Cara Yates Crotty, Esq. - Jan, 2014
The Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs issued its revised regulations implementing Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act and the Vietnam Era Veterans’ Readjustment Assistance Act on September 24, 2013. Since then, contractors have had more questions than answers. What is troubling is the OFCCP’s apparent failure to think through many of the obvious issues now facing contractors, and instead of incorporating answe...

Ten Things for Your Professional Bucket List
by Tiffany Young - Jan, 2014
The traditional bucket list is a list of things to achieve before you die. I think this is an idea that can also be used by any young professional who wants to achieve specific career goals by a certain age. Creating a professional bucket list can put you in a position for a job promotion, a new career, or, better yet, let you explore something new. Here are ten things that young professionals should consider for their lis...
