Taking a breather from looking for a job doesn't have to mean wasting time. Here's how to put your procrastination to good use.
We all know the feeling. You're applying for jobs and plan to reward yourself with 20 minutes of Snapchat or Pokémon Go (gotta catch 'em all, right?) for every application you submit.

Mr. Nantz is back to guide you home on the final weekend of major championship golf this year.
The scores are out there on Saturday at the PGA Championship, where a softer Baltusrol and a relatively benign setup have some of the early players saying the major championship scoring record could fall. Both Justin Rose and his caddie said they thought a 62 could be out there. Then Phil Mickelson said not only is a 62 available, but he thought the course was set up for a possible 61. Soooo buckle...
