CareerBuilder’s latest quarterly forecast covers a lot of ground, but the findings all point to one larger theme – employer confidence. That’s really been the story of 2015, as each of CareerBuilder’s quarterly forecasts this year have shown year-over-year increases in hiring expectations.

We've all been there: You walk into the office on a Monday morning to find your to-do list for the day is longer than the stream of comments on a new One Direction video. (They're still a thing, right?)

When – and how -- did you know what career you wanted?
If you have trouble answering those questions, you’re in good company. And if you’re a parent whose son or daughter is struggling with finding the right career path, you may unsure what guidance to offer beyond the old adage, “Do what you love.”
One of the biggest challenges many HR professionals face is communicating effectively with their organization’s C-suite. This is especially true for those in health care, as the industry landscape continues to evolve, putting increased pressure on the workforce.
