I know exactly what I want out of work, and it is this: working on creative projects to make something useful (and also cool) as part of a team. And also money. Not tons, but enough to get by. I have a BA, but nearly all my work experience to date has been in low/no-skill labor. How do I bootstrap myself into a new career and what should I even be looking at? [more inside]

I am involved in hiring for a help desk lead position. What are are good interview questions to tease out a technical person's "soft" skills? Beyond "Describe a situation where things didn't go right", or "Tell us how you deal with disagreements".
I grew up in a decidedly non-professional family and didn't have much reference for what an educated professional looks and acts like, and definitely lack some of the relevant soft skills.

I've tried to model myself on the good and reject the not-so-good, but I think I need additional help. [more inside]

another thirty-something with only a bachelor's degree uncertain about what to do career-wise. Also uncertain as to what transferable skill(s) to highlight, if any, were I to apply for a job. What should I do with myself? (longgggggggggggg, slightly snowflake-y post ahead) [more inside]
New boss denied my raise, but agreed to meet with me tomorrow to talk about it. Tell me what to say. [more inside]
