There's No Tellin' - Can't Find a Job and Can't Figure Out Why?

If you are not connected to LinkedIn, you are missing one of the most important career tools you can possibly get. KNOW has a group on LinkedIn called, KNOW Paralegals. We have almost 1500 members throughout the U.S.. Canada, Belgium and other countries who share their experiences, thoughts, hopes, wants, dreams and desires. Several sent me their resumes for review. Other members of the group sent in suggestions - good ones, I might add - and offered to review resumes as well.

"How to Treat the Touchy Colleague"

Ah, I'm sure every reader has run across such situations. Good news -- this Business Week article offers helpful advice: "Sometimes, even casual exchanges can set co-workers off. When you hit a nerve, learn from the experience instead of snapping back "It's pleasant to walk into the office on a sunny morning and hear 'Good morning!' from your cheerful co-workers.
