How Having a Learning Disability Can Affect Your Education

For some students, learning, paying attention, and overall focus in a classroom comes very easy; then there are the students with learning disabilities who have the hardest time in class. I, along with my son, have Attention Deficient Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD).

What do HR Professionals Do, Anyway?

The first thing to understand about HR professionals is that their responsibilities can vary considerably. In smaller companies, one or two human resources professionals may be hired to handle all of the company’s HR needs. In larger organizations, the duties are divvied up between several employees or an entire department.

7 Fashion Blunders You Don’t Know You’re Making When Job Interviewing

Congratulations! You have a job interview! Just like you need to prepare yourself for the questions your interviewer is likely to ask, you need to prepare yourself for the impression you’re going to make on the people you meet. Your business management and accounting degree isn’t going to be as impressive if you walk into the office looking like someone who works at a landscaping company. All the gerontology training in the world isn’t going to convince a hiring manager that you’re the mature and responsible candidate they’re looking for if you show up in overalls and pigtails.

The Importance of Soft Skills in the Workplace

I had the occasion to watch a counter clerk in a fast food restaurant recently. It was obvious that this person did not want to be there at that time. Neither did the customers, as a result. The ability to interact effectively with customers and co-workers is one of the “soft skills” that are becoming harder to find in employees.

Battling With Words: The Trick to Writing Research Papers

When I was in college I hated doing research papers. My instructors always presented writing papers wrong. They’d tell me, “You cite your research to prove you don’t plagiarize,” or, “When you get into the real world you’ll do a lot of research, so it’s good practice,” or my personal favorite, “You need sources because your opinion alone isn’t enough.”

7 Ways to Handle Difficult People

You know that you’re a reasonable human being who knows how to interact with other reasonable human beings, so it’s easy to be thrown completely off by the bad behavior of someone you encounter at your work or at school. They make you feel off-balance, manipulated, frustrated, powerless, and it can be hard not to react badly in return, which just makes a bad situation even worse.

Junk Food vs. Health Food

Everyone loves greasy foods, but are they good for you? No! All the fried foods, hamburgers, hot dogs and chimmichangas we eat taste so good but are not healthy. Where is the nutrition? By frying or over-cooking your food, you cook all of the nutrients out. Think of a Big Mac, with all the fat and calories going through your bloodstream. Not a good thought. All of the fats, calories, and grease from the food will clog up your arteries and can cause other health problems too.
