Mistakes We Made at Our First 9-To-5 Job. I Broke Up With Toronto And Fell In Love With Ottawa  In the fall of 2015, I broke up with Toronto because I had fallen in love with Ottawa.

I Broke Up With Toronto And Fell In Love With Ottawa 

My colleagues were puzzled when I announced that I was leaving my publishing gig in Toronto for a non-profit in our nation's capital. They were not perplexed by the notion that I was changing jobs. They were skeptical of my desire to live in Ottawa. The job was an exciting opportunity in and of itself, and I was thrilled to make a new city my own (although I'll admit I had my reservations).

Times New Roman Is Bad for Your Career. Your dream job just became available.

Times New Roman Is Bad for Your Career

You know you’ve got the education, the experience, the know-how, and the passion to fill the position better than anyone else could. Heck, your grandfather even founded the company. But you sent your resume off a full month ago and have yet to hear a peep of confirmation that you are indeed the one and only person for the gig. The problem?

It could very well be your penchant for Times New Roman. “A résumé, that piece of paper designed to reflect your best self, is one of the places where people still tend to use typeface to express themselves,” writes Bloomberg Business reporter Natalie Kitroeff in “The Best and Worst Fonts to Use on Your Résumé.” Among the article’s most surprising findings is that there’s an ongoing debate regarding the professional appropriateness of the seemingly innocuous (and often default) Times New Roman font. Of all the fonts discussed, there was only one that all three designers could agree on: good ol’ Helvetica. Garnet Ghost Town - Stay for Free in Ghost Town. It may not be tops on your bucket list, but admit it: The idea of staying, even just for a night, in a ghost town sounds intriguing.

Garnet Ghost Town - Stay for Free in Ghost Town

Well, now you can — and all for free. The U.S. Bureau of Land Management is looking for volunteers to help manage Garnet Ghost Town, a Montana mining town more that's more than 100 years old, and has been mostly abandoned for nearly that long. As part of the deal, residents will assist the full-time professional staff in guiding tours, maintaining the historic structures, and brushing and cutting trails. Fans of modern amenities, beware: The town has no electricity, running water, or wi-fi. Could This Much Money Make You Happier at Work? Day in and day out, you get dressed, suck down an extra-large latte, go to work, enjoy the far too-sparse evening hours, and then go to bed—only to do it all over again the next day.

Could This Much Money Make You Happier at Work?

It may not be such a bad gig if you’re happy with your job, but a recent survey conducted by Harris Poll on behalf of CareerBuilder reports 65 percent of Americans are unsatisfied with at least one thing at work: their paycheck. The tipping point for salary contentment seems to be right around $75,000 a year, according to the findings: The majority of those who make upwards of that amount reported being satisfied with their income. Those who earned less than that amount, on the other hand, were increasingly dissatisfied the lower their income bracket. It’s hard to pinpoint whether money alone would make employees happier (one Gallup poll found that 70 percent of Americans feel unsatisfied with their jobs). Of course, cost of living matters too. 27 Beautiful Résumé Designs You'll Want To Steal.

Shop Assistant. Summer 2013. How to Negotiate for a Lower Price on Anything. I hate these kind of articles because they lead the general public to believe that they can do this.

How to Negotiate for a Lower Price on Anything

No, no, no you can't. You can't go into a retail store and ask for a discount on an item because you buy in bulk or whatever. Major retailers have set prices, fixed by those in a head office somewhere who determine the value of the merchandise, slap a price tag on it, and set our sales goals. And H/O only gives discounts during sales. The sales tag is the price. And if the food sucks, don't eat it and look for a discount after the fact.
