1) The pay gap varies by career field, this chart shows the gender salary differences in your industry. (WSJ)

2) I need these $39 Restricted tan peep toe flats in my life.  They’re perfect for summer dresses.

3) The 9 Types of Obnoxious Office Personalities. (Marie Claire)

5) 90-percent of college grads consider themselves well-prepared for their career field.  Only half of hiring managers feel the same way.  (CBS News)

      I think of this every time someone uses that expression! I don’t want to sleep like a baby, I want to sleep like a log (or my deaf dog).

    I’d like to add #10 to that obnoxious coworker list – the talker. Talks, talks, talks, tells the same story 100 times, won’t let you out of a conversation no matter how many times you tell them you are late to a meeting, need to go to the bathroom, are busy . . .
