Make It Work: Handle The Interview, Don’t Let It Handle You

Like online dating and stopping to talk to people you haven’t seen since college at Urban Outfitters while shopping for underwear, job interviews are a necessary evil.

Frisky Rant: No, The Wrap, Bill Cosby Is Not Being “Raped” By His Accusers’ Allegations

This Saturday, entertainment blog The Wrap posted a stunningly tone-deaf guest op-ed entitled “The Rape of Bill Cosby.” The tongue-in-cheek opening line read “Bill Cosby raped me.” And that was the best part of the entire debacle.
