2. Active Job Seekers = Successful Job Seekers

There are two types of job seekers in the employment world, and a year ago both were pretty successful. But today, as the job market shrinks and competition for a good position gets tough, only one of those types is going to continue to be successful. What type are you, and how can you turn this knowledge into a successful job search?

3. SEC Launches New Investment Info Web Site

The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and the North American Securities Administrators Association (NASAA) have announced the launch of a new Web site designed to provide information about money managers, financial planners, and other investment advisors.

4. Empower Your Employees; Benefit Your Organization

Business owners and human resource professionals alike have turned to the Internet to administer employee benefits programs more productively, decreasing paperwork while increasing efficiency and accuracy.
