Poor Speaking Skills Versus Job Search Success and Career Advancement
by Georgia Adamson - May, 2013
Have you ever had to listen for long to someone whose voice seemed in imminent danger of fading out completely or was annoyingly laced with “umms” or “you know” or other meaningless verbal fillers? If so, you can probably relate to an article I just read, “Is This How You Really Talk?” (in The Wall Street Journal online). Author Sue Shellenbarger states that “new research shows the sound of a person’s voice strongly influe...
What Will You Earn When You Graduate?
by Bob Roth - May, 2013
You probably know students who say that they do not care what they earn, as long as they are doing something they love. However, you also know that money matters. When you graduate and start working, the money you earn is what you will live on and pay your bills with. How much money will you need each month to live the life that you would like? What would your life be like if your earned $1000, $2000, $3000, $4000, $5000 o...
Work-Life Balance: Seriously?
by Kelly Gurnett - May, 2013
“Work-life balance” has an aura of myth around it—like a unicorn that grants wishes or a bathing suit that fits in all the rights places, is comfortable, and allows you to do basic movements—like, you know, swimming. (Sorry, can you tell I’m contemplating bathing suit season?) We’d like to think work-life balance exists, because we’d all desperately love to have it. But in our heart of hearts, most of us have a creeping sus...

Nobody should be the victim of their own resume. Odds are you have neglected your resume. It is a poor reflection of who you are, what you have done and where you are going. I see so many horrific resumes! This is your key marketing and networking document whether you like it or not. Once you come to grips with the fact that this document will probably determine how your career path goes, hopefully you will spend more time...
Hire for Humility
by Dr. Maynard Brusman - Apr, 2013
The ability to select, motivate, develop, and retain top people is critical to a company’s success. If you want to build a company where people love to work you have to know how to hire and keep great people. Unfortunately, a poor hire can cost a company a great deal of money and cause undue distress and wasted time for everyone involved. Great companies and managers start with optimistic, change-resilient, and committed p...

The Fox OFCCP Report
by John Fox, Esq. - Apr, 2013
April 2013 HOW OFCCP COVERS HOSPITALS HERE'S THE RACK-UP AFTER THE UPMC CASE DECISION I was going to write about the provocative way OFCCP currently selects contractors and contractor establishments for audit, but the tenor and volume of calls and e-mail traffic to my desk in the last two weeks from health care clients and industry representatives have persuaded me I need to...
Choosing an Affirmative Action Plan Date
by Chris Lindholm - Apr, 2013
One of the least discussed, yet most contentious areas in Affirmative Action Planning is the determination of the date in which the Affirmative Action Plan (AAP) goes into effect and the determination of the associated employee snapshot date. For years I have spoken with clients, consultants and the OFCCP regarding their perception on choosing an appropriate plan date and it always surprises me how disparate the answers can...
What Does OFCCP Want?
by Bill Osterndorf - Apr, 2013
Much has been written about the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) in the last few years. OFCCP has a number of significant new initiatives, most notably its recent directive regarding the evaluation of compensation data that federal contractors and subcontractors will be asked to provide during compliance reviews. OFCCP has also gone through a number of changes to the manner...
Why It Pays to Collect Data Beyond What OFCCP Requires
by Dr. Hossein Borhani - Apr, 2013
Some of the OFCCP’s decisions on whether a contractor has discriminated in its hiring decision making process are driven by the result of the gross calculation of hiring rates, availabilities, and impact ratio analyses that OFCCP conducts during the Desk Audit review period. Below, using a simple example, I show why gross calculations on aggregate data sometimes provide misleading results and conclusions. I will also discus...
