Most of the job-related stories we see are variations on one theme: There are a lot of people looking for work, and not enough work for a lot of people.
For some industries, however, the reverse is true: there are loads of job openings, and not enough qualified applicants to fill them.
Between bullying, discrimination and generally rude behavior, the workplace isn't as civil as it once was. Incivility in the office can lead to higher turnover, lower morale and loyalty, and even increased consumer complaints. How can managers foster a culture of civility in the workplace?
If you're looking for entrepreneurial success, look outside your social circle for business partners.

Once per quarter, the product development, data, and analytics teams all block off our calendars and get together in one big room. Fueled by donuts, pizza, coffee, and (later in the afternoon) beer, we build something that isn't on anyone's agenda other than our own.

Looking for work at any age is tough, especially if you're changing careers. But for workers over 55 (and that's at least 19.5 of us and growing, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics) that jump can be even harder.
Finally, some good news about industry in the U.S.: Q1 2012 marked the full recovery of manufacturing wages from the Great Recession, according to The PayScale Index. Wages grew almost .5 percent over the previous quarter and were up 2 percent from last year.
