Increased resume effectiveness by 30%!

I would like to add concrete numbers to my resume but I'm at a loss for how to go about asking for things like user retention rates, revenue, hours saved by the tool I helped build, etc. How can I ask for this information in a business appropriate way? [more inside]

I don't want to be fired for looking at my facebook.

Internship filter: I've recently started a several-month internship. There is really no work for me yet-- I've been told that in the next few weeks, it will pick up, but as of now I'm basically being given busy-work that doesn't need to be done. How can I deal with this situation? Can I leave for a better job? [more inside]

How to prove I am the better (wo)man for the job?

I began an internship at a very small commercial arts organization about a month ago. A week or so into the job, one of the 5 person staff left on good terms for another opportunity. Following her departure, the possibility of a full time position opening up (as replacement) was presented to myself and the other intern, mostly in a friendly manner to make sure we were both interested. Obviously, both of us were very enthusiastic about the opportunity. So here is my question... [more inside]
