    • Being Productive While Working from Home

      With the recent COVID-19 outbreak, we’re living in a whole new world. While some folks are still coming into the workplace, many of us are now working from home. Working remotely is an adjustment. It might sound great, but it’s not all Netflix  and PJs. Here are a few ways to stay on track.

Or perhaps nobody you worked with is still at the company, so you wouldn’t get a good reference. We’ve got you covered with these handy tips. Say Yes, If You Can Okay, there’s really only one answer to this question in most situations. If you say no, your interviewer might think you’re hiding something, or worse, that you lied on your resume. On the bright side, employers really only ask this to make sure you’re being truthful. Many don’t even contact your previous employer (your saying yes makes that unnecessary), and if they do, they’ll probably speak to Human Resources rather than your manager. However, if you absolutely must …
