Here’s my advice: Research the way people dress in that company, and dress a cut above that. A job interview is a formal event, so dress as you would if you were making a client presentation in that firm, or having a meeting with senior management.

And many of those would-be callers now “self-serve” themselves through our website. … [Read more...] about What Happened When I Moved My Company To A 5-Hour Workday
Its goals would be myriad: better understand the “environmental life cycle” of timber building products, increase the safety of tall timber buildings, and advocate for updated building codes that include easements for timber. The bill is supported by dozens of lumber trade groups, which could complicate its goals and the objectivity of its research. Even Green has accepted research grants and paid speaking engagements from the timber industry, though he comments that he and his organization “do not speak for forestry companies or the industry” and has declined to endorse organizations like the Sustainable Forest Initiative in the interest of remaining independent. … [Read more...] about Can Timber Skyscrapers Really Help Save The Planet?
