National Tradesmen Day, initiated in 2011 by IRWIN Tools, is an opportunity to celebrate America's real working hands and to thank the tradesmen who touch our lives daily.

Life happens. Our kids bring home stomach viruses that take down the whole house. That's why you should inquire with potential employers about work-from-home policies.

The company that encourages women to become leaders with support and materials is the company that will help you achieve your leadership goals.

Choosing a company that fosters that kind of growth for women will not only groom you to rise to leadership at that company, but it will provide personal and professional development.

Before you begin your job -- and company -- search, consider creating a list that includes not just what you want in your next position, but what it is you're looking for from your next move.

A good healthcare plan and vacation time are great, but benefits that help you achieve a work-life balance contribute to overall workplace happiness, too.
