by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Dec, 2010
Whenever I talk to job seekers who have been unsuccessfully searching for work for a long time, I often hear a common theme.

by Alexandra Levit - Nov, 2010
As a business and workplace author and speaker, I’m always getting asked about how to cope with getting fired, or how to fire a wayward employee. But no one ever talks about the best way to cut ties with an individual you’re working with as a client or a partner.
