People have commented in this community about companies taking advantage of them; a few of my private coaching clients are having trouble getting paid; and I witnessed a conversation where someone stated that setting boundaries made them very uncomfortable.   What’s the… (Show more)

When I was thinking about selecting my major in college, I wasn’t sure what to do. Should I go for something like Econ, which I had no interest in but had great job prospects?

Just because I’m considered a career and finance expert for millennials doesn’t mean I haven’t made any mistakes. In fact, it’s because of my mistakes that I can speak from a place of knowledge. Without them, I really wouldn’t know what to write about half the time.   Additionally, experts are also human. We may be in a position where we’re… (Show more)

I’ve been at my current job at Facebook for about a year. After somebody has been with the company for 9 months, they typically start participating in the interview process for their respective team.   For the last 3 months, I’ve been speaking to candidates from across the world, trying to determine if they’d be a good fit for our content… (Show more)

A few weeks ago, the internet blew up with stories about instituting a universal basic income. In short, this means the government would ensure that everyone gets a minimum income—regardless of age, wealth, job status, location, etc. In other words, everyone gets a check even if they don’t have a job.   Those who are for it (like Mark… (Show more)

In the last few years, we’ve seen a major job-hopping trend in the market. People just aren’t sticking around at the same job for very long anymore. The interesting part is the why behind it.   According to a report in the Harvard Business Review, 25% of professionals have their eye on a promotion. The problem?

The competition to find a job after college is rough. In 2012, The Washington Post reported that 53% of recent college graduates were unemployed or underemployed. That kind of statistic could turn your senior year of college into a real downer if you’re unprepared. If you are prepared, however, there are strategies to give you a better shot at… (Show more)
