Things don't always go as planned especially when it's a big day! My car started overheating the night before the interview. No way was i going to cancel an #interview as those are few and far between for me. I checked google maps and saw the location is 9 miles away. Luckily for me i still had a bicycle in the garage. I brought a few bottles of water and my interview clothes in a bag so they would not get sweaty. I found a bathroom a couple... see more

Employer ghosting is frustrating to say the least and not a good business practice.

I believe recruiters sometimes are inundated with applications and interviews and inevitably ghosting can happen.

I like to use post-interview follow-ups as opportunities to both thank the interviewer for their time and reiterate interest in the role, but also use the opportunity to nudge the interviewer to take action and keep yourself top of mind with them.

So I got hired on at a privately owned exxon on Monday. Today was my first day of doing day shift. Before today I felt somewhat fine about things but after today my God, there's so much to counting down the drawer at closing. They make it to where a certain amount of certain Bill's has to be in the drawer. Today 1 of the girls that has been there for quite some time now showed me and the girl that started today how to close down the lottery... see more

I’ve heard from a few people close to me recently. Each have different challenges but I hear a similar story.

These are people that made pretty solid choices in their lives – some went to college, some got good jobs, they were active in their communities, etc.
But still, bad luck found them.

I know it happens, and there are a bunch of reasons why things didn’t work out –
their pay doesn’t keep up with costs, divorce, being a single parent... see more

When things get stressful at work, at school, or even if you're just looking for work, it can be really tempting to just sit at the computer and keep going and going and going. You might feel guilty for not pushing harder or squeezing in more things. But I've actually found that taking a walk and getting fresh air is a great way to reset. I actually think it would be a great company program to have walk groups to make sure people aren't getting... see more

My first few jobs were at restaurants and cafes. Even though I work an at an office now I still think back to nights of bus bins piled up 2 feet high and mornings with lines of irritated people waiting for their morning coffee, with me and my team working as fast as we could.

In an office things still get stressful but you have fewer people to answer to and threat of someone completely flipping out at you is definitely lower. Nothing quite like... see more
