BEST way to dress???
I'm getting ready to start my first job and had asked the manager about the dress code. He said it's pretty casual and can wear jeans. My first day is next week, and although I would love to go to work in jeans, I want to make sure I make a really good impression. Should I dress up just a little better so I start off on a good foot here? #Advice #Determined
Use the bad things to your advantage
Just wanted to share with you what happened to me. I am new in New York. I have been working in Asia for 10 years of my life. Have had good paying solid jobs but when I came to New York, I started from scratch. I graduated Major in Information Technology, but I havent used my skills because the job opportunities that came back then were call center jobs. So in NY, I got accepted for a job of IT Helpdesk Admin. I am very grateful that my boss took me in and trusted me that I can do my job even though I didnt have experience. The only bad thing is, my team is messy. The guys I am working with are very lazy. They will try as much as they can to dodge jobs that are given to them. But even though it is challenging, it benefited me in many ways. I had to do initiative to learn things on my own and do the job myself because I genuinely love to help people. And because of this, I have become a more experienced IT person. One thing though, being that this Was an entry level job for me, I was paid like a newly grad college. Anyways, 2 years now and I decided I nEed to find another firm that knows how to value me, and will pay me market value. Here I am, going to start my ne job soon, and got $14k more or what Im getting plus bonus. The bad situation I was in my team was kinda useful. It paved the wah for me to now find a better opportunity. Never stop, try harder, and reach for your goals and dreams, and everything will fall in its place in the right time :) #survivor #gotanewjob #blessed #hardworker #initiative #knowyourworth #newjob
Company has changed hands in the last 8 months and is going in a downward direction as far as caring about their employees and general organization. If you need a job because you need to pay bills then this may be a viable option, but only if you're desperate! This comes from many years of experience in the company and seeing what has recently transpired. They talk a good talk but their actions speak for themselves. #newjob

Hi all. Yes, I am still looking and yes, working in a very interesting private school full time.. However, my question is this: I have gone on an interview with a nationally known restaurant chain for a part time host position. .I was informed to come to orientation this past Monday but to wait on the link so that I can do the initial onboarding. I haven't received the link, I called the person who interviewed me to ask if I was still to be coming on board ( he said yes) and mentioned that I haven't received the link. Should I call again or go by there or just wait? Thanks all!
