She asks me to come up with ideas for her to present to the rest of the company, I even create the power point and she presents to the bigger boss as if that's all her stuff. She keeps me isolated from the rest of the company. If she sees that I try to so much as have a coffee with other people we work with or even try to chat with her boss, she goes ballistic on me. Tells me she does not appreciate her employees going over her head. I like the company, I feel like I can grow here but she doesn't make it easy. What do I do here? #advice
I had a coworker who just started six months ago and she already told me she's very unhappy. She started job searching last month and asked me to be one of her references. I was nervous because I barely know her from the short six months and also what if others find out that she landed a new job because of me. I also don't want to block her career if she wants to move on but this puts me in a weird dilemma. How do I say no to her? #advice
I was so excited last week, as I've been trying to change careers from a flight attendant into a sales job for 6 months. I've always been good with people, and I'm good at developing relationships. I thought I finally landed it last week, I was given an offer for a nice base salary last week, and incentives galore. Then I sent them an email with questions about benefits and incentives.
This morning, I got an email back that I the offer was rescinded. That was their only explanation. I'm wondering if it's because I asked some clarifying questions. I've gone from cloud 9 to back to square 1 😞
If you were recently released from jail or prison, it would be wise to review this survival check list before jumping into the job market.
You may have already taken care of some, if not all, of these - or you may have to spend the next month or two working them out. Below is a list of things that are critical to finding and maintaining most types of employment:
Some of the above will be harder to obtain than others, such as a social security card or cell phone, so it is important that you ask for help where you need it. Show this check list to someone from your identified support system and let them know where you could use some help.
You should not postpone your job search until you have checked off the entire list, but rather work towards completing the list while looking for employment. It can be helpful to start with used clothes, public transportation, and prepaid cell phones to hold you over for 6-12 months.
Think of what you need to do to check off each item on the list. Make a to do list with names of people you need to talk to and places you need to visit. This can be a stressful and difficult process, so be patient and stay positive. If you stay focused, you will have the checklist completed sooner than you may think - and you'll be glad you got started today!
