I had a new hire start in the last couple of weeks and I told my boss about some of our initial conversations when he started. I told her that I spoke with my direct report about his goals during his first week because I knew he made a lateral move to get out of a bad environment in his old role, and I wanted to make sure he has the opportunity to gain new skills and develop in his career. My boss then asked if our monthly meetings were a good frequency and reminded me that if I ever needed anything from her, I didn't have to wait until our meetings but could reach out to her at any time. In 6 months, she has not once asked me if our meetings were happening often enough or if she was providing me with the help that I needed. I think she might have been a little intimidated that I was being more attentive to the needs of my employee than she ever has been to mine! So much of being a manager is being transparent (whenever possible) with your employees and letting them know you are there to help them - and actually doing it! Just a fun story for your Wednesday!

I don't know why, but I have been feeling hesitant about publishing a portfolio.
I just feel so scared in posting all of my accomplishments online where anyone can see. I've tried multiple times creating a career portfolio and I always abandon it midway. I also feel like I don't have enough accomplishments I can brag about. Any advice?

I am not quite sure what to put this in the comments.
But at my work, they pay the males more than they pay the females, even if the females have degrees. I have three degrees. The two men that I work with get more then I do. The one that just got hired gets $2 more an hour then I do & has no experience or degrees, the other one has been there one month longer then me & is handsome & never even finished school with a very shady past & gets $3 more an hour then I do. I have also worked in this industry for over 25 years. I’m very upset about this & have already approached management about it twice. Any suggestions?

I ran across this article on salary negotiation.
The tips come from an Indiana University professor of business law and management. I thought I would share since I've seen posts in the past asking how to negotiate.
