Even if a company has no posted job openings, that doesn't mean you can't get a job there. Sometimes you can get your foot in the door by impressing someone in customer service.
Hater going to hate.
Disappointing to see more and more unnecessarily unpleasant comments on Lifehacker. You read through the article - you didn't like it. No need for the personal insults. I for one enjoyed it.
Hi there! You're internet connection is rarely the issue. However, your network connection could absolutely cause problems.
President Obama, speaking in my hometown of Lawrence, Kansas said it well yesterday to a group of preschoolers in reference to the Dr. Seuss book:
Serenity now, insanity later.
Lots of good discussion. I'm the author of the original article so I thought I'd weigh in. The article talks about how to choose between two great candidates and the "beer test" is just one of the factors. Note the quote is "which of the two would you rather have a beer with after work." It doesn't say that the hiring…
Was going to reply exactly the same thing! I can get to my manuals from my phone or tablet or laptop in addition to my desktop computer.
Paying to be able to pick people up at the airport is a scam in it's self.
Yeah, the insurance part is always the biggest issue for me!
Whew! Another great example (beside the Rome/Christmas one in the post). While this could be to your benefit, if say you want to experience a local festival, it can also cause huge headaches (per your example).
Cookie butter is one of the most amazing foods ever.

Wholeheartedly agree about pinball
That's really the point: they count on that "just a few minutes" mentality and then use psychology to keep you playing. Your best bet is to just walk away and put your money into an arcade game or my favorite, pinball. At least in a video game you're developing a skill rather than being the target of a trap.
There is an app/web site (of course) called Nextdoor.com that promotes this type of interaction. It's geared toward subdivisions and it separate from any HOA.
Incredibly well said. I think if we continue to view everything through our Lifehacker goggles, there's no topic we can't tackle.
Hey, Whitson — this is such a natural step for Lifehacker, one that you've already taken, and one that we can now talk about.
I want to make sure I assuage any fears: the Lifehacker you know and love is not going away. As I mentioned, we've already been doing this kind of stuff for awhile, but I've been apprehensive about it. As we've begun tackling these issues, though, they've become some of my favorite posts on Lifehacker. As much as I…
