I guess this is the era of work from homers, hustlers, system milkers, and sue happy ppl. What if applicants filed lawsuits because they weren't hired at some company. I mean hey ppl sue for everything else. #jobsearch #interview #wordsofadvice #termination #advice #inspiration #application #coronavirus #workfromhome #hiringevents #mythoughts
It might seem obvious, but when we are in the Interview situation, we forget to follow the basic rule of negotiation.
It's essential to have a buffer to ensure room for movement to avoid disappointment when negotiating your salary.
Steps for salary negotiation:
Research the market value for the range and compare it based on your experience (watch my earlier reel on finding your market value).
When asked for fix number, don't pick the lower end of the range.
Whatever is your desired salary (calculated based on your experience and location), mention at least 5-10% above.
To ensure when negotiated, you have a higher chance of getting what you want because if you start at what you want, there is a high chance you will get slightly lower.
Adapted from: The negotiation book, Steve Gates.
I have been out of work now for close to six months and unemployment still has not sent me not even a penny. They sent me various letter saying that I qualify for benefits "BUT WHERE IS MY MONEYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!.
Does anybody know what I need to do if anything for unemployment if it’s fixing to run out? I think I have 2 more payments then? Not sure what to do. This has been my first time on unemployment.. I still haven’t had any luck. I am 62 and have worked the past 40 years..I am still able to work but can’t get anybody to hire me.. I was a supervisor with security at a chemical plant.. do I just reapply on the website?
When you receive a rejection email, or no response at all, how often do you blame yourself or think you did something wrong?
Go easy on yourself. A “rejection” is not any type of indicator of your value.
You KNOW what you can and will bring to a company and the right company and hiring manager will recognize that.
In addition, there are many moving parts to the hiring process and you as a candidate are simply one of those parts.
There are numerous reasons why a company may have chosen to not move forward with you that have nothing to do with you or how you interviewed.
If you see a pattern of not hearing back, speak with a coach as MAYBE your interview skills need some polishing.
Otherwise, keep moving forward and realize that companies, by passing on you, are making a big mistake and a better opportunity is out there for you.
I'm on my second appeal for Massachusetts PUA benefits. What I don't understand is how the IRS can throw rules at you that absolutely didn't apply when I applied. I was accepted and collected for april2020-dec 2020, then no issue with 2020 but they have an issue with 2021 and they want all the money I got for 2021 sent back for some technicallity pertaining to registering a business yet no issue with 2020. Listen that money is long gone and I don't have $7000 extra to give them nor am I making much my income is considered waaaaay below poverty. I think it's bullshit and they probably give bonuses to workers at the irs that victimize families into coughing up any of pua funds back. I verified my identity and provided countless evidence to verify my previous income. I get responses like "anyone could have sent that paper" IT WASN'T JUST ANYONE IT WAS ME AND I ALREADY VERIFIED MY ID SO WHATS THE F**KING PROBLEM. IF I would have known the bullshit I would be put through to get funding that I'm 100% entitled to I would #pua #application #coronavirus
