The bad news: 53% of workers age 60+ are putting off retirement this year.

The good news: That figure is WAY down from 66% just five years ago! http://cb.com/1EUipBb #retirement #economy #career
Retirement may not look quite like your move-to-Florida fantasy.

One of our writers here at CareerBuilder spent his first paycheck on an expensive Star Wars LEGO® set. He put it together. He took it apart and put it together again. It is currently docked in his parents' basement.

Do you remember what you spent your first paycheck on? Leave your answer in the comments below and we might highlight it in an upcoming blog post!

Eat lunch at your desk? Go home instead of going to happy hour with your co-workers?

Yeah... it's probably time to start being more social at work. http://cb.com/1z2UQRS #worklife #onthejob #officelife
Making small talk may make you better at your job.

Pfft. We already eat lunch at our desks, and work while we eat. And, personally, I'd rather go home after a ten hour shift and be with my wife.

My first paycheck? It was from an internship I held after graduating college. I promptly spent it on guitar pedals which I still use to this day!

Be careful what you say at work. Someone may be listening...

... and they may have enough dirt to get you fired. http://cb.com/1EUd9xv

Thinking one thing and saying another is dishonest.  If you have to be dishonest to keep your job, then find another job or start your own business.  Always say what is on your mind, and live with the consequences.  It's called being a mature adult.  Don't be a simple-minded lemming just to keep a job.  If you have dickish thoughts, find diplomatic vocabulary to express them.  Yes, employment is petty if you have to suppress your thoughts and expressions.  I would respect you more if you sold drugs to consenting adults on some street corner.

The skills and traits employers are looking for in applicants: http://cb.com/1JzgA38.

Think you possess them? Be ready to back that up!
In today's workforce, many employers say that there are certain personality traits that they look for in a candidate beyond just having the necessary skills.

Do you want the good news or the bad news first? Okay...

The bad news: 53% of workers 60+ will put off retiring this year.

The good news: That's WAY down from the 66% of workers who put off retirement in 2010! http://cb.com/1Ju4eZZ
