Interview attire – The dos and don’ts [guest post]

Interview attire – The dos and don’ts [guest post]

Angeline is off roadtripping across the country and getting acclimated to a new way of life. She was sweet enough to ask me to step in with a blog post. I’m thrilled to be guest posting for her today.
As a journalist who has been full time freelance for years now, I don’t have to interview for jobs in the traditional sense. And since I’ve begun leaning towards fashion and lifestyle writing even less of those occasions require the formal interview attire. Still, I’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. And then there was that one summer I worked as his secretary and got to pre-screen candidates – boy, was that eye-opening....

ELK GROVE - Homeowner's Solution Workshop will host a free "Know Your Options" informational event tonight from 5:30 - 8 p.m. at Elk Grove City Council Chamber, located at 8400 Laguna Palms Way.

They will share the Fannie Mae website with homeowners who attend, as well as other government and financial options available.

The event is free and open to all residents and homewoners. For more information, visit http://knowyouroptions.com or http://makinghomeaffordable.gov.

The end of days: Preparing to leave your job

The end of days: Preparing to leave your job

[source: woodleywonderworks]
The most common reason that I've had for leaving a job is relocating. It all started when I was 18 and I had a Christmas break seasonal gig at the Gap near my parents house. I didn't have a car at the time and my college was 30 minutes away, so I left that job after 2 weeks (it took them almost 2 weeks to hire me in the first place when I got home from break). Not a "relocation" per se, but it was geographic. In the past five years, though, it's been OC to NYC to OC to Sac/Davis, and now to Miami.

Now, I understand that most people leave jobs for a variety of other reasons. Either way, the last days at a job can be stressful. Here are some tips for easing the transition...

Sometimes annoying traits are something you can point out to a person to help them out (say, your best friend or kid brother). Other times, you just gotta work around it. While the traits I've covered the past several weeks can be grating, they're generally harmless, and are part of what makes our workplaces diverse and interesting. If everyone were just nice and well-behaved and well-groomed, it'd be a little creepy (Stepford Wives, anyone?). Check out parts one, two, and three of this series.
