    What It's Like To Be A: Stop Smoking Expert

    Rocky Rosen doesn't care if you smoke; as long as you're comfortable with your cigarette addiction, more power to you. This seems a rather counterintuitive (and career-ending) approach for someone whose professional moniker is The Cigarette Whisperer, and makes a living helping people free themselves from their smoking habit. Yet it's exactly this pragmatic, sympathetic approach that has earned Rosen the reputation of being one of the foremost experts in the stop-smoking field.

    Personal Details You Shouldn’t Share In a Job Interview

    Personal Details You Shouldn’t Share In a Job Interview

    To prepare for a job interview, most people review what they should say and the most common questions that might be asked. Even if you have the perfect answer for every question, you may not have considered what not to say in your job interview, and this is just as crucial. Sometimes, our willingness to be honest (or frankly, to overshare) can be a bad thing. If you’re trying to land a new job, make sure to review these personal details you shouldn’t share in a job interview as part of your preparation, and you’ll be much more likely to turn that interview into a job offer.

    As gender equality becomes an increasingly pressing issue in workplace culture, individuals are calling out companies that require women to wear high heels to work. The thought behind this opposition is that to compel females to wear the quintessential "sexy shoe" objectifies female employees and undermines the value of the work they produce.
