Finding A Dream Job: Dating For The Perfect Match
By Linchi Kwok
May is the month of graduations. Many new graduates are excited about their future, but at the same time somewhat nervous about new jobs and a new life. Occasionally, I will meet with some graduating seniors who need career advice. My suggestion is: Forget about the stereotypes others put on you and trust your gut. You know what you are good at and what you like. Find an employer that is the best match — if not the perfect match — for yourself. Act as if the employer is the perfect match for you in your personal life.
Four Strategies For Surviving Career Transitions Everyone Faces
Author Tor Constantino writes: When I was just starting out as a broadcast news reporter, a grizzled, veteran investigative reporter told me, "Congratulations on getting hired, kid, but don't get cocky; because you're not anybody in the news business until you're fired — twice."
Whether or not I ever became somebody in the news business is debatable; but, for the record, I was fired twice during the 10 years I worked as an on-air reporter and anchor.
Think Of Your Career As A Climbing Wall, Not A Ladder
It’s easy to think of your career path in terms of climbing a ladder. We want to move forward and progress, and that’s what you do on a ladder — you move up and get from Point A to B.

Roche announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted CLIA (Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments) waiver for the cobas Strep A test for use on the cobas Liat System.

Could Trans-Pacific Partnership Place Drugs Out of Reach?
As President Obama continues to promote a landmark Pacific-rim trade deal, one humanitarian physician group is sounding the alarm over the deal's provisions regarding generic drugs.
Doctors Without Borders, an international aid group, told MedPage Today that the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) Agreement, considered the largest trade pact in U.S. history, would create monopolies for brand-name pharmaceutical drugs, limit generic competition, and lead to higher drug prices.
How To Fix The Ten Worst Resume Problems
Author Liz Ryan writes: I’m not sure that every job-seeking person realizes that there are certain “knockout” items that will get a resume pitched in the trashcan in one second. Every single one of them is fixable. You have a lot of latitude in writing your resume today. It’s a branding document. It isn’t a legal or government document, and there’s no reason for your resume to sound like one.

Debunking The Five Big Myths About 'Big Pharma'
Author John Lechleiter writes: If you are a regular reader of politically oriented commentaries on the pharmaceutical industry then you are familiar with, and perhaps even subscribe to, what I call “the Big Five” — myths about this industry that routinely poison debates, obscure genuine problems, and distort policy recommendations on health care. These myths have been all over the public arena again recently, and it’s time to confront them systematically.
