Help me deal with this unfair situation.

On the whole, I like my job. It pays well and has good benefits. It really rankles me, though, that there are employees in my department who are much better paid than me, who don’t deserve to be. How can I get past this so I’m not ticked off every day at work? [more inside]

Need a kick in the ass for work direction.

I am wanting to get a job in Indianapolis where I am from. My wife and I have lived in my current city for 4 years and have not managed to make any close friends and am not finding much to do here. I am average at my job IMO where others could do much better and have more passion (librarian) (i.e. I don't deserve this job...but that is another story...). Question: trying to figure out what I might be better at and leave library service altogether to more qualified people and find some unrelated job that I can at least make 35 K to start paying off student loan. Is this asking for too much in today's job climate? I am 41 with the M.L.S. if that helps clarify and have solid work performance and have no qualms about ever being a librarian or anything like it again.

Employment Attorney NYC

I am looking for recommendations for the best employment attorney in NYC to advise and represent a female family member, who was until recently a highly placed executive with a major US corporation, in a case involving her questionable and unfair termination. She appears to have valid concerns and solid reasons for legal action, including but not limited to personal defamation, religious bias etc. She lives in Manhattan and is just beginning her search to find the best in the field. I told her I would check with you. Any advice and/or referrals would be appreciated. Thank you.

The last thing you need when you´re job hunting is more mind games

According to some of the job-search literature I´ve read/what I´ve heard from friends, companies will sometimes post ads for positions that don´t exist. I´m not talking about outright scams/MLM; I´m talking about legitimate companies advertising for positions that they don´t currently have open. How common is this practice? Why would you go through all the trouble of posting for a non-existent job? Is there an easy way to spot positions that aren´t real? [more inside]
