Sick at Work: How to Prevent the Flu in the Workplace

It is that time of year again…flu season. The peak of flu activity is happening right now and will continue until February. That means everyone needs to take precautionary measures to prevent getting sick and spreading the illness, especially at the workplace. Employees that work in close proximity to each other are particularly susceptible to the flu and the other highly contagious illnesses. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), people infected with the flu can spread it to others up to six feet away by droplets from coughing, sneezing, and talking. Others can also get the flu from touching surfaces and objects that have the virus on it, and then touching their face.

Business Casual vs. Professional Interview Attire

When it comes to job interviews, few things stress job seekers out more than finding appropriate attire. The common saying is, “It’s better to overdress than underdress” but at the same time, no one wants to stick out like a sore thumb.  Showing up to a law firm for an interview without a tie or jacket could ruin your chances before the interview even begins, while wearing a full suit to a younger, more casual company could be off putting to your interviewers.  We've listed some of the most standard and acceptable interview attire in hopes that it can relieve some pre-interview stress!

Help! How Do I Disclose My Criminal Background?

An increasing number of employers are performing background checks on potential candidates. Now, criminal records and background checks are not only readily accessible but also inexpensively obtained.
