Just Graduated? Here's How to Rise to the Top of the Pack

Don't Work Hangry!

Don't Work Hangry!

Most of us become irritable, distracted, even downright nasty when we're hungry (and that's not good for ANYBODY). Stop "hanger" in its tracks to stay happy, focused and productive on the job.


Orbit, Stride and Interview Success

Researchers from St. Lawrence University found that gum chewing improves working memory, episodic memory and general information-processing speed. Chewing also gets blood flowing to the head and "wakes up" your brain, making it easier to focus.

  1. Chewing a stick before a big interview:
    • may help you remember key talking points
    • may reduce stress that could undermine your performance
    • definitely freshens your breath
  2. Just make sure you throw your gum away before meeting your interviewer!
