LAST CALL: Office betterment needn't take long

Remember "quality time?"

The idea of parent-child hyper-bonding squeezed into micro-minutes has

fallen out of favor with child psychologists. But what might not work at

home, may be a good idea for the office, says the latest thinking on

career networking.

Vicki Lind, head of Evergreen Careers in Portland, OR, told MSN that

today's fast-paced workweek means 20-minute meetings rather than long

lunches may be the way to go. A management professor at the Rochester

Institute of Technology recommended even less time, saying five minutes

once a month may be enough to gain valuable workplace insights.

Also, for folks who still think the PRSA is the Puerto Rican Social

Association - joining professional organizations is another technique

experts recommend for a rapid career rise. But don't just send in your

dues - pay them through volunteer work and by getting involved.
