    • Job’s Great, Boss Is Terrible: Should You Quit?

      Everything is perfect, except for one lil’ thing Nearly half (49%) of employees are unsatisfied with their jobs. They don’t feel like they’re making a difference, or it’s just not where they thought they’d end up in life. But you? You love your job. Maybe it’s the company culture, the work itself, or a really nice paycheck. The only problem? Your boss is a nightmare. This happens to workers all over the world. They like their jobs, or are paid well, so they can’t afford to quit. But that less-than-great boss makes things difficult. Thinking about quitting? Not so fast—you’ve got options. Talk It Out Yeah, sitting down and having a heart-to-heart with a troublesome boss isn’t the most fun prospect in the world, but it’s a place to start. Before asking your boss for a meeting, sit down and list their troublesome behavior. Be as blunt as you want—this part is just for you.

    • Asking the Interview Question: Show Your Interest in the Job

      Prove you’re looking for more than a paycheck We work to get paid. That’s a fact. And interviewers know that—but what they’re really looking for is genuine interest in the job.

Here are a few ideas: I’m really interested in this position because of XYZ reasons. What does a typical day look like? Asking this question shows your interviewer two things. One, that you’re organized and want to be prepared on your first day, and two, that you want to know about the less glamorous, day-to-day moments of the job you’re applying for.

    • Jobs You Can Get with Any Bachelor’s Degree

      That degree is shiny and new, but uh, now what? If you’re graduating this fall, congrats! If it’s not ‘til May, still, congrats! And if it’s in a few years? Yeah, congrats are still in order. Regardless of when you’re graduating, you’d probably like a bit of help with the whole job search thing. Many grads don’t end up with their dream job right after earning their degree. It takes a bit of learning and experience to get there, which means you might not end up in a job related to your major (at least not at first). Luckily, there are plenty of jobs out there that just require a bachelor’s degree, but nothing super specific. Let’s dig in! Financial Planner “AGH MATH! NO!” That’s probably what you’re thinking right? But being a financial planner is about so much more. Many financial planners have degrees totally unrelated to finance. A bachelor’s degree gets you the general know-how you need, while most of the job-specific stuff is learned on the job, …
