A Case For More CEO Tweets

Marissa Mayer does it. Richard Branson does it. Even Rupert Murdoch does it. That is, all three of these CEOs tweet. They are, though, in the minority. Currently, less than 5 percent of chief executives have an active Twitter account. Meanwhile, 35 percent of Americans are now actively tweeting. So, the question begs: why aren't more chiefs sending out 140-character messages and racking up followers by the thousands? The easy answer is there's too much downside. Read More >

Impress the Receptionist: 5 Tips for Your Next Interview

The Wall Street Journal's blog "The Receptionist Is Watching You" very provocatively opens with the following tip: "Want that job? Better be nice to the receptionist." As a former admin, I can tell you the rumors are true: hierarchy doesn't dictate closeness within a company, and the CEO is as likely to ask his front desk person to weigh in on a potential new hire as another associate. But that doesn't mean that kissing up to reception will get you good reviews. Read More >

--By Marnie Consky All MBA-level jobs require you to have strong communication skills.

To Quit or Not to Quit: Knowing When to Move On

Knowing when to move on from one job to another is tough and a decision that remains one of the most personal decisions you can make. Jobs mean money; they mean security and the ability to pay your bills, to eat, to sleep indoors. While the necessity of jobs is unquestionable--outside of winning the lottery or coming from royalty--their fit, on the other hand, isn't. But knowing which questions to ask yourself about your job, and how to decipher the results, is not an easy task. Read More >

Obama’s Advice for Would-Be CEOs

Advice for New Grads from T. Boone Pickens

The 84-year old founder of BP Capital Management told Business Insider that he wouldn't mind starting from scratch. As he recounts during his interview, T. Boone Pickens told an audience of "drifting off" young grads at St. Stephens & St. Agnes that he'd trade spots with anyone of them.

People Skills, Hacked: 3 Tricks from Apple Geniuses

Oh, Apple Geniuses. You just thought they were knowledgeable and helpful. Turns out, the warm, fuzzy feelings you have as you walk out--with your $600 in purchases-isn't just a product of their natural awesomeness: it's painstakingly studied customer-service skills.

4 Reasons Why "Graduate Academies" Might Trump MBAs

You've seen it in the headlines: companies are hiring, but not you. They need highly skilled engineers and technicians, not law students, consultants, or liberal arts majors. If you think this is frustrating for you, take solace in the fact that it's equally exasperating for the companies.
