In almost all cases, yes. Giving two weeks is considered standard in the working world. That means it will most likely leave your employer with a negative impression if you don’t do it.

When was the last time you took a vacation? Do you have any exciting plans this Spring or Summer? Don’t forget to check these tips on managing your paid time off. You should pay attention to any unused PTO that you’ve accumulated in the past two years:

What happens to unused PTO?

The rules and accrual rates for unused PTO vary between companies and states. In some workplaces, your PTO may roll over and continue to increase. If you quit your job, you may be entitled to a payout that matches your unused PTO.

My wife has been at her current job for 6 months but is fed up. She’s applied to a few places but this one in particular seems ideal. Good commute, great benefits including part time work from home, and would double her pay!

She did a mock call and phone interview and it was sent to the manager for review. They told my wife they would “definitely” get back to her after a week. It’s been two weeks now, but she told me she doesn't want to be "annoying" and #followup yet.

What should she do, if anything? Your #advice is greatly appreciated!! #jobsearch #interview

Ever since I first started working, I was always a little nervous about annual reviews. Not because I thought I was doing the wrong things, like getting to work late every day or doing a poor job overall, but because having your boss to improve, did not always feel great. For some reason, especially earlier in my career, I had been conditioned to have a fight or flight response to criticism, I know I am not the only one to feel this way. But not all criticism is bad. Some criticism is actually good feedback given to help people grow their skill. Sometimes all it takes for us to benefit from the good kind of feedback is the willingness to listen.

Do you want to learn about good criticism and how to benefit from it?
