As graduation season comes to a close and people start to plan for their summer vacation, a new season arrives in the workplace: intern season

Many of us experienced one (if not more) summer internships during our college years, and some may even credit those times for paving the way for their future careers.

But, then again, many of us may look back at those internships with horror and dread. Unfortunately, the Hollywood stereotype of the mistreatment of interns is often the case. Since interns are often times unpaid and unexperienced, they are often left to do the least desirable jobs with little thanks. Countless latte runs, seemingly pointless tasks, and organizing lots of files and paperwork is never really that valuable, and it doesn’t help interns prepare much for the “real world” either. …

Developing your salary negotiation skills is useful for both employees and HRs.

Having the experience of sitting on both sides of the negotiation table, I can relate to the candidates I’m negotiating with as an HR manager. After all, I and other HRs have all gone through the same negotiation process as candidates before getting our positions. Many people feel uncomfortable negotiating their salaries. It makes us feel like there is a conflict and most of us don’t want to come off as pushy.

Don’t get me wrong, there are also those people who have no trouble at all to describe their excellence and why they deserve more than what you offered. In my experience, these are usually men who score rather low on the agreeableness scale. A recent research has shown that agreeable employees tend to earn less over the course of their careers. …

GDPR is designed to replace the already dated Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC and harmonize all data privacy laws across Europe.
