  • How to handle an irritating boss

    DEAR JOYCE: My boss, a confirmed buttinski, makes me crazy with his meddling personality. Yes, I'm good at my work, and no, my boss doesn't know what he's doing most of the time. I don't just quit and look for employment somewhere else because my commute'...
  • See the bigger picture in video interviewing

    DEAR JOYCE: I just experienced my first video interview. I knew about it in advance, had my hair done, wore business clothes and practiced answering questions. Even so, I was very nervous, and nothing went right. I probably won't hear from that employer...
  • Caught! When boss learns you want out

    DEAR JOYCE: You've mentioned the risk that employees take if the employer discovers they are trying to find another job? Why is that exactly? -- N.D. The possibility (probability in an online search) that an employer will find out an employee is...
  • Make purposeful networking contacts

    DEAR JOYCE: I'm well aware of the never-ending advice to network to improve one's career chances. But I've never found aimless networking to be of much help, particularly at those sundowner socials sponsored by chambers of commerce where you supposedly...
  • How to explain lots of job changes

    DEAR JOYCE: I've not been able to find a new job for four months. I'm only 31, so it's not my age. I also dress appropriately for work. My husband says my problem may be because I've switched jobs too often and that I'm considered a job hopper. He could...

    DEAR JOYCE: When I, a woman, tried to run for local public office, I found out that it's still an old boy's club. Have you ever heard of an all-woman political group? -- B.D. You could start one. A new book will be out this month that gives you a plan:...
  • Before accepting offer, due diligence required

    DEAR JOYCE: I took a job too quickly because I was desperate. I jumped into the job with no training to teach me the ropes. My company is in an industry that's changing fast and so are my hours -- every couple of months. The stress is killing me. I...
  • How to scoot by the gatekeeper

    DEAR JOYCE: When I try to follow up on the phone with a hiring manager after an interview, the admin takes a message but won't put me through. I feel like it's a waste of time to even make the call. How do salespeople get past the gatekeeper? -- S.O.J....
  • In job interview, put best face on a weakness

    DEAR JOYCE: A recent segment of the TV show "Brain Games" compared results when twin women candidates were interviewed for the same job. Both were asked to describe themselves. Candidate A led with three positive factors, following up with three...
  • Read federal job announcements thoroughly

    DEAR JOYCE: Recently you said you think this is a good time to apply for federal jobs despite the sequestration. But I've submitted my application several times with zero success. What am I doing wrong? -- C.H. I can't pinpoint what's keeping you out...
  • Is working remotely on the way out?

    DEAR JOYCE: I'm a single mom working from home three days a week. I can afford a sitter two days a week. I understand that Yahoo and Best Buy ended their policies of allowing employees to work out of the office. Maybe I'm overreacting, but are we seeing...
