Life at work can be funny, challenging, ridiculous, and -- yes, even satisfying. Here at Safe For Work, we're all about helping you find balance and happiness in your career. After all, many of us spend more time with our co-workers and clients than with our friends and family. Hosts Liz Dolan and Rico Gagliano give advice on everything from how to avoid burnout on the job to how to fake an illness when you're calling in sick. We also talk to experts about those moments at the office that can challenge the best of us: negotiating raises, knowing when it’s time to move on...or dealing with that annoying office mate with no boundaries. From Wondery, the network behind Business Wars, Safe For Work is helpful career advice that's lively and fun, just like your work life should be. In every episode, Liz and Rico talks with callers, business leaders and noted know-it-alls who share their hard-earned wisdom from the trenches. Liz Dolan is the former head of marketing at Nike, The Oprah Winfrey Network and National Geographic and host of the podcast Satellite Sisters. Rico Gagliano is a contributor to The Wall Street Journal, former host of podcast Dinner Party Download, reporter on the public radio show Marketplace, and co-author of BRUNCH IS HELL.

We get tons of emails from listeners who need advice about applying for jobs; and, in particular, about creating resumes. Yet somehow we’ve never addressed one of the more vexing resume problems: what to do when you have a gap in your employment. Like, if you were downsized out of a job for a while, or you took time off to raise kids.So to help us figure out how to communicate those gaps in your resume, we’re joined today by certified counselor and career coach Steven Starks. He’s here to go through some different scenarios to make sure your resume looks great, even if there are some bare spots.Then Liz and Rico chat with listener Susannah, who’s trying to find ways around putting her current boss as a reference on applications for a new job. And we hear from listener Mary, who’s just starting her freelance career and is curious about pitching to companies while keeping ownership of her ideas. Finally, we’ll talk with Belinda George, who’s found her calling as an elementary school principal, and even started an out-of-the-box afterschool program for her students.As always, if you've got a burning workplace question and need some advice, don't hesitate to send us an email (that email, unsurprisingly, is also [email protected]). You can also find us on Twitter, we’re @SafeFor Work. Don't forget to follow our sage hosts on Twitter, too; they're @SSLiz and @RicoGagliano. And if you want to check out Liz’s other show, Satellite Sisters, you can find it on Apple Podcasts or Art19.A note from our sponsors:Treat yourself to your favorite Ben & Jerry’s flavor anywhere ice cream is sold, or find a new favorite at benjerry.com.
