How Self-Reflection Can Help Your Career

You may think of self-reflection as more of a personal pursuit related to overall happiness and wellbeing, but being self-reflective can help you to get (and better keep) your next job.

When you reflect on your career, you can uncover some interesting truths about yourself like...

  • What motivates me?
  • Where do I want my life/career to go?
  • Do I feel satisfied with my life/career so far?
  • What kind of person/employee am I/ do I want to be?

Dispatcher wanted me to drive when I was tired

So last week I had to change sleep schedules a few times because of the timing of the loads. I ended up having a 10hr break and was able to grab a full nights sleep but then a half hour into my drive I was told to take another 10hr break. Of course I couldn’t sleep again so soon so when that ended and my dispatcher sent me out with a new load I was dead tired a few hours into the route. I pulled into the next stop and called in to let them know I…

So I informed my job that my Grandfather had passed and I needed some days to attend the funeral. Instead they said that I would have to use my vacation time because it ws not an IMMEDIATE family member! I have not been with the commpany long enough to get PTO! Can they do that? My GRANDFATHER is DEAD! If this is how they conduct buisness, I find that I want no part in it! The only way I can get off is if I take a leave of absence and then I have…

James Ogden runs Fergusons plumbing division in Phoenix like Donald Trump runs the White House

Last week I would have been celebrating my 5th year at Ferguson. I recently transferred here about year ago. When I first came down to interview for the warehouse job he informed me how chaotic it was here how understaffed they were and how out of space they were. Informed me that he wouldn't cut my pay because if the cost of living difference between Phoenix and Iowa. LIE #1. Found out how much I was making and informed me he wouldn't be…

Just don't waste my time.

I would like to address an issue that I am confronting. I find a job listing. I have all the Knowledge, Skills, Ability and Experience that is required but, I am not bilingual. I strongly feel that any listing for a job that required multilingual skills should be listed at the top of the job description so that I do not waste my time. My most productive and lucrative work experience required me to manage a Spanish speaking work force. My…

I need help, please.

Like many others, I can't find a job. The bills are piling up, my husband has dementia and Parkinson's and I'm his sole caretaker. I can't collect unemployment because they consider me a transient worker ( I hopped from one assignment to another). So what's the next step? Do I qualify for State benefits? Where do I find info on that? Who do I ask? I've been sending resumes, filling out job applications,etc. I'm at a loss and I feel like crying…
