Have you ever had a hard time landing a career you wanted because you have little to no experience in that field? Do you think everyone should have the same opportunity to land the same job, especially if there is training available?
My brother just brought this up with me, he got to the 3rd interview for a job he really liked, but then found out the salary was super low, with poor benefits.
Everyone has a minimum in mind when applying for jobs, and it just saves everyone time in applications. And it seems there's a growing number of people who are frustrated with job listings not including the salary range.
It’s that time of the year when companies are renewing their employee benefit plans. Lots of members and friends in my personal network are learning the not-so-jolly news💸 that they will either have to contribute more for the current healthcare coverage, or they will have to compromise for a downgraded health plan.
A few tips to share on how to make the best of your job benefits:
What are your experiences when choosing your benefits? Any smart savings tips?

So I was approached with quite a hard question by a young friend doing the usual job search:
Can you coach me with how to complete and pass the required assessments some employers have for new applicants?
So, this is an expansive type of answer. Some employers have customary answers to find the best suitable candidates to fill roles within their organization. And a lot of the time, it isn't cookie cutter. Some employers want introverts. Some want those who acquire more knowledge than customer-related skills. Some want the opposite. It's usually never "cookie cutter".
When faced with an application assessment, it's imperative you remember the most important part: You! Answer the questions how "you" feel they should be answered. Never stop being who you are for a potential job. If they don't pick you, they don't deserve you! Don't be discouraged! Remember, they need you more than you need them. Remember your worth! Fruit for thought 😉
What do employers really want in an employee? I have what seems to be a character flaw I can't shake and am having trouble coming to terms with it. When something needs doing and no one else will step up, I can't help but step up and get it done.
