Hiring for Fit: It's Not All About Qualifications

Hey Jobcasers,

This is a post that I think will be of use to both the employers and the employment opportunity seekers of Jobcase, because I want to go into probably the most fundamental mistake we make when it comes to hiring: Caring more about the Resume than the Person.

Now, if you're like me, your resume holds a special place on your hard drive and sometimes, late at night, you open it up just to look at it and smile (okay, so maybe I'm a…

Cultivating Healthy Work Environments

All jobs can be stressful, but I've found that teamwork, encouragement, and a positive environment helps tremendously. It can make a stressful job enjoyable! Toxic, passive-aggressive work culture results in less happy workers and less work being done right. When employees have a healthy environment to thrive, they will indeed thrive. Not only for themselves, but for the entire business. Unhealthy work environments are draining, and people are…

You are choosing a job, NOT the other way around.

I don’t recall how I joined this site and forum. I started passively searching for new career opportunities while still working with my current employer so i haven’t been actively using this site and forum - but I have been seeing the email notifications come through and reading how so many are suffering in their situations. I thought I would share some words for comfort / wisdom / support / advice - you can choose.

When you don't like your job..

Everyone has had a job they didn't like at least once or twice. If you ask 10 people if they like their job, more than half would say they didn't. So I ask, if you don't like your job, how can you work and do it well? We all need money and in order to get it, this means we are doing something we don't like doing and therefore are unhappy.

Some people can afford to quit their jobs, I know I've done it. I was unhappy with my boss who was screwing…

Bad owners

I don't believe people leave bad jobs but rather bad bosses and owners. It's been my experience that in order to run a business successfully you not only have to have a great team of employees but a great boss and/or owner that truly appreciated their employees. For without this people who can be amazing assets are pushed away and told they are not good enough, or that they can never succeed in life because they are not worth it, these people are…

My biggest challenge I overcame at work was...

The biggest challenge for myself was being from the valley and now working in a small town in the international border. Being I don't speak Spanish it made it a little more difficult to communicate at times, but you find a way regardless. Everybody understands kindness in any language.
