by Mary Jeanne Vincent - Jan, 2010
A recent Networking Roundtable for job seekers held at my office included a mix of people. There were those who kept bumping into the issue of “over qualified”, and felt that age was definitely an issue that was prolonging their job search.

Thou Shall Not Slander
by Alexandra Levit - Jan, 2010
In the last few months, I have spotted no fewer than three examples of one person in our social networking community slandering another person in our social networking community. I use the word slander, although technically it's more like libel because the articles are written by bloggers who are read by thousands.
