      I Built A Bot To Apply To Thousands Of Jobs At Once–Here’s What I Learned

      I have a great job, and there’s no rush to leave. As a director at a national nonprofit I’ve built some fantastic teams, but over the past year they’ve gotten so good at what they do that I’ve begun to wonder whether I’m still needed.

      What I Wish I Knew About My First Pay Check

      Unlike in countries such as Australia, Singapore, and the United Kingdom, there are no federal laws in the United States that say young people must be taught financial literacy in school (though that is slowly changing on the state level).

      Here’s When You Should Use Email Instead Of Slack

      Here is the situation: You’re in your office and want to ask a superior a critical question. The query is both important and contains some privileged information. How do you contact this colleague? Group brainstorms. Slack helps eliminate inbox clutter. If you’re working on a brainstorm, the chatroom environment is perfect for spitballing ideas. Conversely, when working with a large group of people, there is nothing worse than a reply-all avalanche.

      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.

      So I hid behind cheesy LinkedIn taglines like “Professional Writer,” and I spun my writing history into sounding impressive. 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.

      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?

      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.

      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.
