Once you officially start working, it becomes the perfect place to meet new people and make new friends. Although with all those new additions, comes that feeling of comfort to just let go and be yourself. Not that it’s a bad thing to be yourself around your friends but should you share everything in the place you work? It’s just a matter of asking yourself “Is it TMI for work?” (If you find yourself wondering what “TMI” means, it is the abbreviated term for “Too much information”.)When work and personal life mix, the combination might not be what you expect.

Every candidate walks in to an interview with the expectation of it being the first step towards a successful career and the connection that the candidate builds over the interview will reflect on the decision that they make. Even the best of candidates might change their mind when they don’t feel connected or comfortable with the employer. Although many believe that candidates always expect an easy way out of a question, in reality what they desire are questions that will portray their personal beliefs and highlight their subject knowledge. Questions like “Where do you see yourself in five years” have gotten old and almost everyone come with an answer prepared for that. You don’t want a candidate that has memorised the answers for each question, you need a candidate that can think on his/her feet.

While successful female leaders have made headlines in recent years — Marissa Mayer, Sheryl Sandberg, and Indra Nooyi all come to mind — they remain the exception to the rule.
Yet in the U.S. women make up nearly 40% of MBA graduates and 40% of managers. In many countries they make up an equal or greater share of tertiary graduates and the professional and technical labor force. And worldwide they are catching up to men in levels of education and workforce participation. So why do women remain hard to find in the corporate boardroom and the C-suite?
