How to prepare for your job interview

Katie Hinderer | 11 November 2012

Today you need to be even better prepared for your interview than ever before.


Staying sane through the job search

Katie Hinderer | 30 October 2012

Staying sane during the job search is tough! Here are some tips for making it through the process:


A generation of travelers

Katie Hinderer | 09 January 2012
The more I look at my friends and the other twenty-somethings around me, the more I realize the travel bug is something that is a part of our generation.

YP: What to Wear on Your First Day at a New Job

Katie Hinderer | 12 September 2011
Last week I stood in a friend’s walk-in closet and stared at her clothing options. It was 10pm and the following day she would begin her first day of teaching high school students.

YP: Interview Attire – the dos and don’ts

Katie Hinderer | 14 July 2011
’ve got a thing or two to say about what you should and shouldn’t wear to a job interview. You see, my father has worked in human resources for more than 30 years and so over the years I’ve picked up a few of his tips, pearls of wisdom and pet peeves.

YP: The power of the follow-up

Katie Hinderer | 27 May 2011
Granted, not every follow-up is going to lead to some ground-breaking collaboration or a job offer. But a young professional would be wise to learn to power of the follow-up before too long.

Is being single silly - a reader response

Bernadette Supan | 08 May 2011
As Tamara noted, you need to be strong and able to stand by yourself before you enter a relationship. Agree – but only partially.

Dating 2011: Is being single silly?

Tamara Rajakariar | 01 May 2011
For some reason, all the single chicks in movies are the losers or pitied, unless of course they are those independent women who are hot enough to have casual sexual partners every weekend. Are these really the ideas we want young girls to live by - that single is weird unless you’re having regular sex? Not to mention the fact that this reduces entire relationships to only their physical component...

Dating 2011: ABG Maturity

Elyse Burns | 28 April 2011
This stands for ‘Austen, Bronte, and Gaskell Maturity.’ These three writers have done more for true women’s liberation than any less elegant feminist of today. The principle of my theory is simple- in the novels of Jane Austen, Charlotte Bronte, and Elizabeth Gaskell, their heroines possess a quality some women in today’s world just don’t have.

Dating 2011: Looking in bars for love

Tamara Rajakariar | 23 April 2011
Ladies, a bar may not be the best place to start when looking for a decent guy.

Dating 2011: You can pick your friends, but…

Elyse Burns | 21 April 2011
I don’t know who said that, but it is one of the truest statements I have ever heard. You can pick your friends, but you can’t pick your family. With most of our friends, there’s a point in the relationship where one or both people decide that they would like to have a deeper connection with the other.

Dating 2011: The Facebook relationship

Tamara Rajakariar | 18 April 2011
Once upon a time, word of mouth was enough to let your close friends know that there was a special man in your life. Nowadays, your relationship is only official once announced on Facebook...

Dating 2011: The Twilight Myth

Katie Hinderer | 12 April 2011
‘The Twilight Myth' which is being mistakenly accepted by so many teenagers and young adults, goes like this: You and your boyfriend have enough willpower to sleep together nightly and nothing will happen.

Dating 2011: Are you dating or seeing?

Katie Hinderer | 09 April 2011
It might seem like semantics dating, seeing, whatever. But there is a crucial difference between the two terms.

Dating in 2011

Katie Hinderer | 08 April 2011
The dating scene today is difficult to navigate and not for the faint of heart.

Where are the mature young men at?

Katie Hinderer | 14 March 2011
For awhile I’ve been wondering what happened to the mature young adult males, the hard-working yuppies who have left behind the glory days of college to take on a more grown-up position in life. They seem to be few and far between. If you listen in on the average girl talk, most of the female yuppies out there bemoan the fact that men don’t seem to be man enough anymore.

Endless outfits with limited clothing

Katie Hinderer | 30 December 2010
The key to a great wardrobe, for both guys and girls, is the ability to mix and match the various items in order to create new looks with the same pieces.

Freelance isn’t free

Katie Hinderer | 25 September 2010
While the lifestyle is exactly what so many of us love… no stuffy suits, no long board meetings to decide the type of copier we need to purchase… the perception of freelance is so very misunderstood.

This wasn’t part of the job description

Pamela Golamco | 20 June 2010
Professionally, how do you know when to draw the line and say, "I am not doing this."? Can you ever do that?
