But the unfortunate part is that more than half of U.S.
Taylor Swift, Demi Moore, Jennifer Aniston and other A-list celebs have somehow gained the reputation for being unlucky in love. Perhaps they’d have had more success if they worked in a regular office.

More companies are taking it upon themselves to build the “perfect” employee instead of waiting for one. In the face of the skills gap challenge, nearly half (49 percent) of employers say they expect to hire and train individuals who don’t have experience in their industry to get them skilled up, according to CareerBuilder’s Q1 hiring forecast. That number is up quite a bit (39 percent) from last year.
