There's a new workplace etiquette for the new millennium, and, no surprise, it's all about transparency and authenticity. The new etiquette is driven by the fact that young people who grew up online don't know how to operate any other way except transparently. The good news is this means they have great social skills; the bad news is they have no idea that they're breaking all the old rules. Here are 10 tips to help people who aren't used to living an authentic, transparent work life flourish under the new rules: 1. Forget the exit interview. An exit interview won't help you, and ...
Navigating Office Politics
Office politics can sometimes be as shameful as many would argue real politics in Washington D.C. has always been – fraught with liars, talking heads, and power-hungry corporate bandits competing for their coveted turf. Furthermore, when you’re just trying to come to work, do a good job and get paid well for it, office politics can sometimes be nothing more than a distraction, an annoyance, an obstacle to your career success. So, given the fact that office politics exists whether you like it or not, what do you do? How do you navigate office politics, while keeping both your sanity and your job? There a few options to choose from: market research, surveys and trends
Penelope Trunk's Career Tips Don't Always Apply
Penelope Trunk is an outspoken supporter of everything Generation Y has to offer. Most of the time, I agree with her. I do believe the workplace is changing to make the most out of the skills and behaviors of younger people — it’s “adapt or die.” But not all sectors of the working world are changing in tandem. For that reason, some of Trunk’s ten new workplace etiquette tips miss the mark for most traditional workers in the United States. They may apply better to smaller companies that are involved with the types of services that rely on receiving attention from Generation Y, but the Old Guard ... market research, surveys and trends

Clyburn Remains Rooted as a Rising Power in Congress
When U.S. Rep. James Clyburn (D-S.C.) gathers in August with hundreds of supporters and well-wishers in South Carolina for his annual Rudolph Canzater Memorial Golf Classic, the highlight of the event will not be golf. The focus of the two-day gathering in Santee, S.C., is a dinner at which Clyburn honors the more than 100 winners of a $1,000 Canzater Scholarship to college students from his congressional district. The money raised for the needs-based Canzater Scholarship (named for a late close friend and Clyburn campaign volunteer who had a passion for education and helping young people) helps determine whether a disadvantaged ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Entourage's Urgent Quest to Remain Relevant
returned Sunday night – a fact that, in previous years, would have been cause for jubilation around my house. But over the last few seasons, what used to be a witty, cutting, edgy observational drama about four young friends navigating the halls of Hollywood power has instead become a sort of male-oriented Sex and the City – all dressed up with nowhere interesting to go.
