Every Friday we round up the salary trends, career stories and job news that you may have missed during the past week.

  • This isn't your mother's generation. The feminist movement waged a hard-fought battle for equal rights, but millenials might not be interested in carrying the torch.
  • Would you be willing to pay $5 for someone to look at your resume if doing so would ensure it gets read?
