Bullies Are Just Cowards in Disguise

If you have a manager (or another colleague) who is bullying you repeatedly or who acts very unprofessionally to you over and over again, you HAVE to take steps to bring it to an end.

No one deserves to have this type of stress in their life. I’ve seen (and experienced) how this behavior can negatively impact people’s health.

The first thing you have to do is clearly document the behavior.

Second, practice what you are going to say to whomever is bullying or mistreating you at work in a calm but firm tone.

And third, sit down in a private 1:1 meeting, lay out the issue(s), and TELL them their mistreatment of you stops right now.

Often, this is all that will be necessary because bullies, underneath all the false bravado, are just cowards who likely know what they are doing is wrong, but just keep doing it because they feel they can get away with it with you.

This is not your fault, but you must take steps to stop it.

If that doesn’t work, you escalate accordingly. Either through HR or, if that’s not enough, an appropriate employment lawyer.

Bottom line: No one deserves to be bullied or mistreated in the workplace and the only one who can REALLY make sure it comes to an end is you.

Back in the work force!

Finished my week of training and starting in my new job. I worked for 10 years in the medical field as an ultrasound tech but lost my job when we were bought by a larger company. About the same time, my elderly grandparents needed full time care, so I did that while they provided for me. After they both passed, and then needing a new roof on the house, money was getting tight and I started applying. It seemed no one was interested. I even tried employment agencies. I reworked my resume and got a call from a senior living facility. I had applied for dining room staff with my new resume, even though that wasn't one of my stronger skills. I like working with seniors so I figured it's a good "foot in the door" opportunity. I was asked to interview that same day, and when I met with HR, they offered me a caregiver position. I had mentioned that I had taken care of my grandparents for 5 years. That made a good impression. I took the job. It's not full time but it is what I needed.
The moral of this is maybe not to leave things out of your resume. Something you have done in your life might be a beneficial skill employers are looking for.

Follow up on Fingerprint Hell

It has been a few months that I have been in limbo because of the state not releasing my ID. But I finally received a call to go in Friday to redo all of my HR paperwork and I go the following week to finish training. Finally! And I still do not know the reasons that the state did this to me. I wish I could find out the reasons for all of this but its the state and they do not like to give information out I have discovered. Thankfully the company stayed on top of jt and fought for me, to get me back to work. It is so nice to be appreciated. I know a;lot had to do with my test scores and conduct when I was there from what management told me. And I stayed positive when I talked to them or about them.

Recruiting & Dispatch manager

As I have been out of work since Sept 2016, I've been trying on a daily basis to find a position in my field of recruiting for staffing agencies. In every imaginable way,I've been looking, but so far no luck. I've also, on a daily basis looked in other fields, but that hasn't worked out as well. I have a real passion and love for recruiting in the light industrial field because more than not, you are helping non skilled people find work and those that are having a hard time find work for many reasons. Students, people with criminal records, those looking for a 2nd job, etc,etc. It is quite a rewarding feeling when you can help someone get back on their feet and find employment. I still have that emence passion. It is so frustrating not being able to find any sort of employment , let alone in recruiting. I guess 18 years experience doesn't count for much. I'm not giving up and I know NYC is a tough market, but where does a 57 year old go to get help in returning to his passion, his field?
