Robert Half Management Resources reminds job candidates not to forget the basics—such as proper body language. Avoid giving a weak handshake; a firm, quick grip conveys confidence. Don’t avoid eye contact. Look the interviewer in the eye.
The Y.W.C.A. wants to encourage people to support abused women. You can never go wrong if you tell an abused friend or relative, “I’m worried about you.” Or “It makes no difference what you did. No one deserves to be treated this way” or “You’re in a tough situation, I know it’s hard for you to make a decision.” Or “You’re a strong person.” It is often a co-worker that will notice the problem and can help the woman break free. In 2003, 1,144 women and children found safety and support at the YWCA’s domestic violence shelter and more than 6,100 crisis calls were taken.
Now is the time to nominate small business for the Giant Step Small Business Awards. Nominations are due January 15th in several categories. For more information, contact the Chamber at 328-5053, or see us on the web at saltlakechamber.org.
