Professional's Career Development

One of the challenges of being in HR is that we have career goals and lifetime desires that have been put in abeyance or forfeited in order to climb the HR ladder of fulfillment and success. Sometimes those goals get set aside in deference to the one who could become our life partner, whether that means spouse or companion or whatever other definition we choose to assign to that term. We keep those goals private and never publicly reveal them even to our most intimate of friends or that special… Continue

Identity and Selflessness

I've talked about the challenges that the media face when determining what is valid news in order to create compelling content that informs and educates. On the same day that the revelations regarding The Press occurred to me, I also observed some skills that are required of a politician in order to be considered re-electable, charismatic, and capable. Those observations made me wonder whether I could handle that… Continue

About Amy



Amy and Ed Becker have been together for ten years. Amy has an MBA and a very responsible position in the company where she's worked for the past seven years. That's just about the same amount of time that Amy and Ed have been experiencing difficulties.



When her job entailed being at the desk each and every day, it was necessary for Amy to miss at least three to five days a month for some strange accidents she kept having. But as time, experience, and… Continue

Vocabulary Builder

/*

*/
November 16, 2007

Here's a vocabulary builder with multiple purposes. Not only does it strive (as does with both of our vocabulary builders) to build your vocabulary and recognition of words (and therefore, your word power), increased facility in speaking and writing, better performance on qualifying and placement exams, better reading speed, and improved interviews. In addition, each time you get a word right there's a benefit for others.

Each correct word delivers credit for 10 grains of rice to a person in a country where there is poverty and hunger, distributed by the United Nations World Food Program. To see the current country breakdown of donations, click here.

Click the logo to play the game or simply click here.

May 28, 2007:

Well, here's the inaugural installment of the Vocabulary Builder. Incidentally, if you have some vocabulary builders to recommend, send them over (along with the definitions, if you have them!).

Match Up
Match each word in the left column with its synonym on the right. When finished, click Answer to see the results. Good luck!

Is This the Time?

I don't know how many of you are superstitious or how many of you are into astrology. But there's a responsibility that goes with the job of being leader and the time has come to make you aware of a situation that will definitely have an effect on your endeavors for a while. Mercury is going retrograde on April 18. If you click on the link and read (for quite a while, actually) you'll gain an understanding of what it means when Mercury is…See More

Jobs in Writing and Publishing

A lot of us are bombarded by traditional channels relating to work. As time passes, we become myopic about options available to us. In the writing and publishing industry, this is especially true. There are other industries that fall into the same category but let us look at writing and publishing -- and entertainment generally -- to think about translatable industries.Perhaps we forget about the entertainment industry because we traditionally see it as independent contractor and freelance…See More

Checking Out the Atmosphere

Of late, I've had the opportunity to look at relationships in both the real world as well as virtual ones. I then contrast those to the work relationships depicted on television. There are some things that are constants; there are some that are idealized. On television, the members of most of the office or work settings get along with one another. They have strong bonds of affection and mutual respect. They rely on the expertise of their fellows in order to successfully accomplish the…See More
