Research examines the value of authenticity at work
Nearly two-thirds of people admit to lying about themselves to co-workers, according to research by the University of Houston and the University of Greenwich in London. "If you?re at work and you?re not expressing yourself -- not authentic to yourself -- you?re in jolly good company. ... It?s really normal and doesn?t have an adverse relationship to quality of life," the University of Greenwich's Oliver Robinson said.

Are you obnoxiously smart?

How a resume becomes a job offer
When you send your resume to a large company, there's usually not an actual person ready to read it on the receiving end, Harry Urschel writes. An applicant tracking system will likely put it into a database, where it will sit until a hiring manager searches the database using keywords. To help your resume gets picked, use terminology from the company's job description instead of your own, Urschel suggests.
