What are the benefits of "dressing-up"? I am female, in my 40s, professional in a fairly casual office. Make-up, hair-dos, and other markers of being more dressed up seems like a waste of time. What (if any) are the benefits of being more dressed up that would make it worth the time/cost/effort? [more inside]

You thought "Official Use Only" included porn? For real?

You thought "Official Use Only" included porn? For real? I was entrusted with a laptop owned by the public sector (recent employer). I let a friend use the laptop to do writing work while his computer was broken. I deemed this acceptable because at no time did he have access to employer's VPN-protected data. However, it would appear that he downloaded pornography. [more inside]

Types of part time jobs for a psychology student before applying to grad school

I'm presently completing a B.A. on Psychology (via distance learning) with the intentions of continuing towards a Masters in Clinical Social Work. I have a couple of questions: 1) I'm 42 years old and have done back to school as a career changer. I have a wife and daughter and need to work part time while I'm a full time student. Does anyone have any suggestions for work which might help with graduate schools looking at both my academic and work background? All of my previous work experience involves working with people, but not much similar to work a therapist would be engaged in (worked for last 8 years as a talent agent) 2) Does anyone know which cities offer the greatest potential for work as a clinical social worker as I hope to eventually open a private practice, but will work in hospital or mental health facility while gaining experience?

Fun New Product at Work

The management at the company I'm working for has sold a couple customers on a product that we as the worker-bees have yet to produce.

New York City and Boston both have standard work weeks of 35 hours. It's 9-5pm but your lunch is included in there. Texas, California, North Carolina have a standard work week of 40 hours, so it's 9-6 to accomodate your lunch hour. I realize that it has to do with your job somewhat, but it is overwhelmingly consistent (even blue/white collar, salaried/hourly). Why? [more inside]
