Boston and Detroit: Not So Different


by Angela Reed

But I’ve come to see that Detroit and Boston are not so different. Beneath the old money and fashion labels, Boston is in a huge hiring freeze. I am experiencing it first hand.

Our New York career expo: cold but determined

It’s sobering to see thousands of people lined up on a frigid, blustery February morning to find work.

Nobody's Hiring? Not so fast


I hear it over and over again: “Nobody’s hiring.” I’d be a fool to argue that jobs are plentiful these days – not with the jobless rate at 7.4 percent.

Understanding the Dynamics: When Your Boss Yells at You


Updated on July 18, 2023

Workplace dynamics can often be complex and challenging to navigate. However, when complexities turn into distressing situations such as a boss yelling at an employee in front of others, it can be not just humiliating but damaging to the professional relationship and overall work environment.

An estimated 48.6 million Americans, or about 30% of the workforce, are bullied at work. In India, workplace bullying is reported to be as high as 46% or even 55%. In Germany, it’s a lower but non-negligible 17%. Despite these alarming statistics, workplace bullying like this often receives little attention or effective action.

This article aims to provide some guidance on how to handle such a situation, with the hopes of increasing awareness and prompting more effective responses to this pervasive issue.

Who is the Stronger Sex? Guess Who


There’s a lot of talk these days about surviving – from a tough economy everywhere to a plane crash in New York’s icy Hudson River. In his new book, The Survivors Club, author Ben Sherwood gets into the realm of who survives and thrives: who bounces back from job loss and who gives up, who adapts to a vanishing 401K and who hides under the covers?
