Ever heard the proverb," Good salaries happen to good people?"

Recently, my biggest work challenge hasn't been trying to find time to do my work in the midst of social media. It's been juggling work with all the other, um, work. (Emails, emails, emails! One marathon of a meeting followed by another meeting and one more, just for good measure.)

If, like me, you're trying to figure out how to squeeze it all in, then I hope this article helps:
How to get the most done despite your endless email and nonstop meetings.

I'm working on a new careers piece on hidden interview tests with a little help from my social media friends (hopefully). If you've done any hiring in the past, then tell me: Are there any behavioral triggers that potentially sway you in favor of or against a candidate? 

To get you in the mood, I'll give you one of mine: If a job candidate doesn't send a thank you note within 48 hours of his or her interview, then I'm not inclined to hire him or her. 

So what are yours?

Sometimes it's not who you are but how you are that costs you the job. For instance, read these 10 interviewer turn offs.
