Unhappy job at a stable company, or better job at a takeover target?

Should I move from an unsatisfying job at a stable company, to a better job at a company that might soon be sold? I'm not happy at my current job, and have just been offered a better position elsewhere. The problem is, the company that's trying to hire me is on the auction block, and will probably be sold in less than a year. [more inside]

Gift for family for whom I work?

For the past four or five years, I've worked as a dog-walker in New England. A family whose dog I've walked for much of that time is moving back to their hometown in the midwest. Because I dabble in photography (and because they live in a neighborhood with great architecture), I'd thought of putting together a scrapbook or photo album with pictures of their community, some of which would include the dog, as a going-away gift. The more I think about this, the more I see the potential for it to go horribly wrong or be misinterpreted by the family. What's the best way for me to do this? [more inside]

How liable am I if I was 'just following orders'.

I was told to falsify information at my job and then fired for it a year later. I received no training regarding the form that I was told to change and had no idea that it was considered a legal document. Do I have any recourse here or am I just a dumb rube who got played by higher-level bastards?

Immigration question

I'm a Canadian going to grad school in the U.S. I don't have a student Visa as it is not required for Canadians - we only need to show an approved I-20 form at the border - and I'm trying to figure out if and where I can work. I'm employed by the University as a TA but I'm not sure if I can work anywhere off campus or how that might be done. Any thoughts?

Suddenly I'm the belle of the ball

I find myself in the novel situation, upon being laid off, of having a large number of potential job opportunities. I'm in the tech space, so most organizations work through recruiters, and I'm getting over a dozen calls and emails a day since posting my resume. Many of the job descriptions look like a good fit, so I know I can have my pick of location, type of organization, benefits, salary, etc. It's quite early in my job hunt, and I have the leisure of about 2 months to do it in. I'm looking for tips about how to keep organized and be in control of the situation. [more inside]

Will sit exam for food...

Which jobs/careers require an examination as the starting point of employment? I'm not looking for careers that require some sort of professional accreditation like passage of a bar exam or certification. I'm thinking more along the lines of the old (in the US) civil service exam. I know all about the foreign service exam and am curious what else is out there.

My very own NORAD

As part of my work for a client I've begun researching online privacy, cryptography, and other sundry ways of protecting oneself online. And I'm now completely creeped out and must switch NOW to uncrackable passwords, multiple email accounts, encrypting the crap out of everything I do, and generally making sure that only the things I want public on the internet are publicly accessible. But we run into the question - how do I do that without driving myself nuts trying to remember my passwords, convince everyone I know to use encrypted communication, and maintain a reasonable amount of privacy in my web surfing? And how do I do that after 8 years of webwhorage where I wasn't too concerned who knew what about me? [more inside]
