Would you ever bring your mom to a job interview? These Gen Y job applicants did!  And that's not all. This article shares the crazy behavior that's making HR recruiters say WTF?

I'm sure this lovely model has a good heart, but I can't help thinking that she might be a little stupid if she ever thought modeling was a job that required more than good looks and a penchant for cat fighting. What Would Tyra Do? http://bit.ly/10f8PSU

This series on Author Rank was EXTREMELY helpful! (Is there a word better than extremely?). Amy provided step by step instructions, images, idiot-proof language...I can't stress enough how amazing this series was. I actually managed to start establishing my own authorship. Incredible. Thank you Amy!

Don't encourage career changers and job seekers to explore a nursing career! Poor job outlook and a surplus of nursing students is forcing would-be nurses to look at other options.

You took the words right out of my mouth Judy. I grew up with a vocational counselor father encouraging me to consider a career in nursing for its stability. Guess he was wrong (I knew it!)

#Craigslist - famous for having the all-time wackiest want ads -- is casting for a new reality TV show called How (Not) to Get Murdered at Work. It sounds like it's going to be a real scream. (Or is it?)

Hiring managers say the class of 2013 is just not good enough to be hired. Are college grads really as dumb as employers think they are? Take a look at what some managers are saying about this generation of workers.

I can't get enough of easy step-by-step guides like this one. It was so easy it makes me feel like a computer genius! Is this how hackers feel all the time??
