I've been wondering what you all think... We all know that a standard full-time work day should last about 8 hours. But if you had the power to set your own hours for the day, how many hours would YOU work?
Would you get work a shorter day so you can get all your tasksdone quickly and move on to other things or would you spread your work out through the day so you can pace out your work and take more frequent breaks?
Either way, let me know below!
It can be hard to look at our skills in a realistic light. Whether we underestimate or overestimate our abilities, the affect on job seeking success if you're not clearly seeing what you're good at can be massive.
This video examines why it's so hard to evaluate yourself and what you can do to get a clearer picture of your aptitudes.
Let's face it. Not all of us are made to work all jobs. Knowing what you're good at and what jobs will not be a great fit for you. For instance, with all love and respect to my friends who work in sales I know for a fact that I would be horrible at it!
But on the flip side there are some out there who love working in sales every day. Just take a look at this salesperson's account of their typical work day and let me know if you think this looks doable to you.
If so, tell me why! If not, what other job would suit you better?

When a hiring manager asks you if you have questions (usually at the end of an interview) they're giving you the opportunity to turn the tables of the interview for a moment. But they'll also be judging you based on the questions you ask in that moment. You should be asking questions that showcase that you:
Things you'll want to avoid unless strictly brought up by your hiring manager are:
Now imagine you've just been prompted to ask your interviewer a question at the end of an interview. What would you ask about?
There's a theory out there that you can split workers into two general categories based on their aptitudes: hunters or farmers.
Hunters are competitive with themselves and other and love the "thrill of the chase" when they work. They do best in roles where they can convert leads from cold to hot and showcase their ability to close many deals.
Farmers tend to be focused on quality and nurturing relationships over competition. They tend to perform best in a role where the focus is growing and maintaining client or customer relationships by provided a good quality of service.
Each type has its strengths and weaknesses. Which do you think you are: a hunter or a farmer?
Heads up! You could be asked this question in an interview, so take a shot at preparing your answer in the comments. :)
