  • Who Are the Underemployed?

    Unlike unemployment, which is easy to define, underemployment is somewhat subjective. What constitutes not having enough work? PayScale's recent report examined three major reasons why people describe themselves as underemployed: not earning enough money, not using education or training, or not getting full-time hours. Any way you slice the data, it's clear that underemployment is a common problem: Over 40 percent of respondents described themselves as underemployed.

  • Vacations Are Good for You and Good for Your Employer

    It's not news that many Americans don't take vacations -- or that they should. But at this time of year, it bears repeating: that last-minute getaway might mean the difference between doing your job well, and stumbling through the day with low energy and a bad attitude.

  • 3 Time Management Hacks to Make You Better at Your Job

    It used to be common to hear people say, "There just aren't enough hours in the day." Now, there's no point in wishing for an extra 60 minutes here or there; we know that our work would just expand, like a gas, to fit the shape of the container.

  • Male CEO Steps Down to Spend Time With Family

    When a woman quits her job to spend more time with family, no one bats an eye. When a man does the same, it's news. Earlier this week, Max Schireson announced that he'd be leaving his role as CEO of MongoDB in order to travel less and be at home with his wife and children more. The shock that reverberated throughout the internet is proof, if we still needed any, that men and women have not achieved parity in the business world.

  • Make Your Twitter Bio Help You Get the Job

    It's hard to sum up the whole of your experience, skills, and passions in a single-page resume. Shorten that to 160 characters, and you have two things: your Twitter bio and a writing exercise that's probably more challenging than anything you've had to do since your last poetry unit in high school English class.

  • Job Growth Hits Higher-Wage Occupations

    The majority of jobs lost during the recession were mid-wage jobs, i.e. jobs paying between $13.83 and $21.13 an hour. As of March 2013, 58 percent of jobs gained during the recovery were low-paying, in industries like food service and retail.
