    • Writing Your First Resume

      There’s a lot of advice out there for folks who are writing their seventh or eighth resume, but what about writing your very first one? You might think you don’t have anything to put down since you’re looking for your first job, but there’s plenty you can do. It Depends on the Job If you apply for a job at your favorite fast-food place, they probably aren’t going to focus as much on your skills. You can opt for a list of related hobbies and life experience. But if you’re applying to a job as an accountant or a programmer, skills will absolutely be important to the prospective employer.

    • Poll Results: Accountability and Working Remotely

        Working from home gives workers more flexibility but can also be more distracting. Kids, pets, chores, lawnmowers—there’s just a lot going on. We wanted to check in with our readers and see whether they are having difficulties holding themselves accountable when working remotely, so we held a poll. Here’s what they had to say. Seventy-four percent of respondents said they did not have an issue holding themselves accountable. That means only 26% found it hard to manage their time at home. For those who find it difficult to hold themselves accountable, we asked what the toughest challenges are. Here’s a summary of that information, as well as our take on how to overcome those challenges. “Time management: I start off by doing chores, dealing with the dogs, and relaxing, and then it’s hard to find time to start working.” If this sounds familiar, don’t worry!
