    1. How My Cycling Obsession Makes Me A Better Entrepreneur

      How My Cycling Obsession Makes Me A Better Entrepreneur

      To say that Max Levchin has a busy schedule would be an understatement. Best known for being a cofounder and former CTO of PayPal, he went on to become a board member and investor in Yelp and Evernote after PayPal’s sale to eBay in 2002. (PayPal and eBay eventually split in 2014.) In 2012, he cofounded Affirm, the consumer finance company where he holds the title of CEO today.

      The Biggest Mistakes New Executives Make

      Within the first 18 months, there’s a 50% chance a new executive will leave the organization. While some cite poor cultural fit, inadequate onboarding, or the lack of appropriate expectations as the cause, in reality, many new executives inadvertently set themselves up for failure within the first few months of their tenure by falling into common traps: Organizations invest a lot of time and money in hiring the right CEO or senior executive to set a vision and make the changes in their company.

    3. New Graduates: These Are The Unspoken Rules Of The Workplace No One Tells You

      New Graduates: These Are The Unspoken Rules Of The Workplace No One Tells You

      Graduation is an exciting (and scary) time; you’re leaving a world where you know all the rules and entering into a world where what’s expected of you often isn’t so clear cut. The rules that truly matter in the workplace are often not written anywhere—they’re simply things that those who have been in it for a while consider to be obvious. Many learn these unspoken rules through trial and error, and some do it by observing others’ mistakes.

    4. Six Ways You’re Turning Off Everyone Who’s Trying To Help You Find A Job

      Six Ways You’re Turning Off Everyone Who’s Trying To Help You Find A Job

      You already know that asking for help in your job search is a smart thing to do—that’s why you did it. Research suggests that the vast majority of job offers come by networking (no surprise there), but especially through those “weak connections” in your professional circle—that intern manager from a few years back, the marketing exec you met briefly at a conference and forgot to take out for coffee afterward.

    5. 3 Times Being 'Super Passionate' Isn't Enough To Land You The Job

      3 Times Being 'Super Passionate' Isn't Enough To Land You The Job

      Imagine for a moment that you’re a hiring manager. You’re considering two job candidates: one who’s passionate about the work and one who isn’t. Who do you choose? If you answered, “Duh — the passionate one,” without even pausing, then you’re reading the right article. Because, while we hear a lot about how companies want employees who care, that’s only one selling point. So if you’re going into a competitive interview with that mindset, you might be holding yourself back.

    6. Why You Need To Hire Job Candidates With These Three “Weaknesses”

      Why You Need To Hire Job Candidates With These Three “Weaknesses”

      This isn’t exactly a mistake, but it’s only part of the puzzle. Everyone has weaknesses and drawbacks that they’ll invariably bring with them, too. What hiring managers usually do is just try to decide whether a candidate’s strengths will outweigh those detriments. But what they don’t often do is systematically determine which types of “personality flaws” they’d rather have on their teams. After all, some are a lot worse than others, and some can even be assets under the right circumstances.

      Nine Words And Phrases To Avoid When You’re Negotiating A Salary

      You’re 96% sure that you’re ready to schedule a meeting with your boss to ask for a raise. Or perhaps you’re nearing the end of the job interview process and an offer is in sight. However, if you’re like me, you have definitely put your foot in your mouth a time or two saying the wrong thing at the absolute worst moment. Doh! Don’t mess up. Don’t mess up. No matter how many times you rehearse what to say, there’s always that risk of fumbling right at the five-yard line.

    8. What To Do When You Get Blamed For Your Coworker’s Screw-Up

      What To Do When You Get Blamed For Your Coworker’s Screw-Up

      Getting blamed for a colleague’s screw-up doesn’t just feel crappy, it also puts you in a difficult spot. If you say nothing, you’re taking the fall for someone else’s mistake, which might reflect on how well (or not) your boss thinks you can do your job. But if you speak up, you risk seeming petty or even dishonest. So you have to proceed with extreme caution.

    9. I’m Facebook’s Head Of People—Here’s What We’re Hiring For Right Now (And Why)

      I’m Facebook’s Head Of People—Here’s What We’re Hiring For Right Now (And Why)

      When I joined Facebook in 2008, we could’ve fit all of the company’s employees into a single movie theater. There were just a few hundred of us, mostly based in Palo Alto. Now, nine years later, we’d need a stadium. As the company has grown nearly 35 times—to 17,000 people in more than 50 offices in 30 countries—we’ve recruited entire teams we never imagined we’d need. So it’s no surprise that our recruiting process has had to evolve with us.

    10. Six Reasons Why Your Argument Failed To Persuade

      Six Reasons Why Your Argument Failed To Persuade

      That’s wrong. Persuasion doesn’t work this way. You might succeed at getting others to concede a point temporarily, but they’ll often revert to their old ways of thinking as soon as whatever logic or enticement you’ve used to “win” them over to your views is no longer there. Being persuasive is a lot more about emotions than cold, hard logic, and like all skills and competencies, you can get better at it with practice.

    11. What Happened When I Started Saying “Not Yet” Instead Of “No”

      What Happened When I Started Saying “Not Yet” Instead Of “No”

      A decade ago, I was a fresh-out-of-college entrepreneur trying to convince a Sri Lankan tea seller to make a deal with me. It wasn’t going very well. I wanted the seller, who owned a boutique tea company, to become a supplier for the loose-leaf retail tea business I was trying to get off the ground. I could sense the man’s skepticism—in fact, his first instinct was to refer me to his distributor—but even so, he heard me out.

      6 Reasons You Need to Change the Way You Hire

      Finding and bringing on new hires is a time consuming and costly process. From advertising the position to screening candidates to interviewing potential employees, it's an awful lot for one person to handle.
