Making It Official: Writing a Letter of Resignation
By Brooke Heath

Perhaps you have already given your notice of resignation verbally, but most companies require that you submit a formal letter of resignation to keep on file. It is also to your benefit to give your employer and your company's human resources department a letter of resignation because it covers your end of the deal. It ensures that the date you are leaving and the date you informed your employer of your resignation are officially documented. In most cases, it is ideal to have a letter of resignation ready when you go to give your resignation in person.

Ambitious Women and the Glass Ceiling
By Hardeep Arora

The term "glass ceiling" refers to a barrier so subtle that it's virtually invisible, yet so strong that it prevents competent women managers from moving up the corporate ladder or managerial hierarchy. These artificial barriers based on attitudinal or organizational bias that females encounter to progressions within organizations, are typically not faced by male managers. The glass ceiling principle thus suggests that prejudice proceeds by social-psychological processes that include stereotyping and evaluative biases. Perhaps the most important component that reinforces the glass ceiling theory is the informal effort by dominant group (males) to retain an all-male atmosphere at top of the corporate hierarchy.

By Hardeep Arora

''Money never made a man happy yet, nor will it. The more a man has, the more he wants. Instead of filling a vacuum, it makes one'' - Benjamin Franklin.
