    • Dating in the Workplace

      How to handle it. You see someone across a crowded room. Perhaps it’s an assembly line in the warehouse, a busy hallway in an office, or a crowded call center. Your eyes meet. The attraction is magnetic. Bad love songs play in your head. You just got bit by the workplace love bug.

This is probably not an answer you can come up with right away (especially if you first consider saying “because I need money, duh.”) Here are a few essential things to include in your answer. “Because from what I know about this organization through my research, I believe I match the company culture.” Do your research. Make sure the job meets your needs and your skills meet the job requirements. Your interviewer wants to …
