How Do You Know When It Is Time To Start Job Searching? Signs You Shouldn’t Ignore!
by Michelle Dumas - Sep, 2013
Let’s be honest: Job searching is rarely enjoyable. However, like paying taxes or seeing the dentist, we all have to do it from time to time. Sometimes job searching is necessary because of lay-offs (those who suffered as a result of “downsizing” during the most recent financial crisis know what that looks like). There are, however, other situations when job searching isn’t necessarily forced upon us, but the handwriting on...
Spot Phony Employment Ads Like a Pro
by Cathy Francois - Sep, 2013
As a former classified sales representative it is too easy for me to distinguish a legitimate employment ad from a phony one. It’s like trying to give me a Chucky Cheese game token and telling me it’s a dollar coin. However, I have found that for many others these differences that I see plainly might not be so obvious. There are many innocent, desperate, or otherwise unsuspecting job seekers who fall victim to scams. The sear...

You have just finished a difficult OFCCP compliance review that appeared to be interminable. Numerous scenarios could have occurred during the way, but the end result is OFCCP issuing a notice of violations (NOV) and a conciliation agreement (CA).
