Is hating your job worse than losing it?

Losing your job can be a traumatic experience for many people. Indeed, recent research shows that job loss for men is more stressful than divorce. But new insights show that people may be more resilient than previously thought. Also a job you hate may cause more stress than unemployment.

How your posture can give you control

If you just show enthusiasm , ask questions, speak authoritatively that’s all you’ll need to get that job, make the impression in the group, or make a good presentation—according to many career counselors and advisors. Yet an often overlooked factor—good posture—may be an even more powerful force, particularly if the people you are facing are more powerful and influential in the hierarchy.

Under stress, men and women also have different brain activation patterns during decision making.
