      Why This CEO Appointed An Employee To Change Dumb Company Rules

      Earlier this year, an employee wanted to send a customer a T-shirt with our logo as a gift. There was nothing special about this particular shirt. It was an ordinary, 100% cotton crew neck. But by the time this employee got approval–factoring in his own time and everyone else’s up the org chart who had to weigh in before signing off on the request–the cost of this T-shirt had ballooned to at least $200.

      Seven Bad Habits Every New Manager Needs To Shake

      It takes a whole different skill set. Most new managers learn the basic do’s and don’ts quickly—like resisting the urge to brag about how experienced you are and encouraging your employees to suggest new ideas.

But what that really told the world was that I was scared to be me–somebody new to the game. Looking back, I lost business this way. Clients who might’ve hired me were turned off by my pretentiousness. Here’s how I finally got over it.

      How To Answer 8 Interview Questions You Should Never Be Asked In The First Place

      Sometimes, hiring managers are not HR specialists; they are simply looking for a talented person to join the team. In the quest to hire a colleague, they might ask off-putting or inappropriate interview questions. A job interview is not the time for a hiring manager to get input on his or her diversity recruitment strategy. If you’re the candidate, what should you do?

      Nine Reasons Why That High-Paying Job Is Making You Miserable

      Money. We all want more of it–or do we? According to psychological research, the answer is complicated. We all have different motives depending on our personalities, and while money certainly matters, it can even make us feel worse about our careers when those other basic drives are neglected.

      How I Finally Quit My Job At The Gap To Freelance Full-Time

      At graduation, weeks before, I’d won a big scholarship, the one that’s given to just a single student in each department. When I walked up to receive it, the MC read aloud a short blurb I’d written–something self-deprecating about how after graduation I expected to be living at home with my parents, working in retail, and trying my best to become a freelance illustrator.
