Considering how much time we spend in the office, it’s no wonder occasional hook-ups or office romances take place. Especially at the end of the night, after those rare open-bar agency theme parties.
Hooking-up, getting it on, grown-up serious relationships, going steady, booty calls: whatever you call it, whatever you’re having – it’s becoming more and more prevalent, and in some circles, accepted in the workplace.
What if you have to attend the same meeting? Ride the elevator together? End up microwaving your Lean Cuisines at the same time in the lunchroom?
Did you know Michelle and Barak Obama met on the job? Back in 1989, he was a summer associate at a law firm and she was his supervisor.
Office Romance by the Numbers
Vault.com did a survey in 2011 on people’s perspective of office romance, and the results were quite interesting.
- 59% of respondents admitted to having an office romance.
- 23.3% of men report having short-term flings vs. 15.4% of women.
- 22.2% of women report having more long-term, serious relationships vs. 14.7% of men.
In our own FreshGigs.ca job survey, 20% of respondents said they had dated someone at work and 29% said they would.
When asked what makes an office romance unacceptable, respondents said it would not be cool if the relationship were between a superior and subordinate (um, Mrs. Obama.), if the two parties were in the same department, or if they are working on projects together. Continue Reading

Asking for a raise is one of the most important and necessary skills an employee can have (especially one early in their career). And yet despite the importance of acquiring this skill, it remains an elusive, terrifying mountain to conquer.
Many of us know what we should do in order to increase the odds that we get a raise. Yet knowing what to do and actually following through are two very different things.
If you’re trying to be average then by all means go ahead and group yourself with everyone else.
This article isn’t going to tell you what to do; it’s going to tell you what not to do. I’m writing this with the hope that you notice things you’re not doing, rather than seeing things you need to do. It’s a subtle difference, but I believe that shining the light on bad practices can be a better motivator than showing the perfect way forward.
If you’re going to take action after reading this article, make sure you do the opposite of what I describe. Here’s how not to ask for a raise.
1. Forget about timing.
Whether you’re still on probation or 6 months into a new job, it’s never too early to ask for a raise. The most important thing (really, the only thing that matters) is that you’re well compensated.
Companies look favorably upon employees that ask for raises early and often. Stand out from your coworkers that ask only once per year and make it a priority to increase your pay. After all, what else matters? Continue Reading
