My employment asset to UPS
I have an AAS in Computer Science. I am an ex felon who is willing to work and I would be an asset to any company because of my educational accomplishments, intelligence, ability to work well with others, ability to learn fast, business skills from running a contracting company for 10+ years, and my desire to work towards a career which UPS provides. #motivation
You'll Never Please Everyone...and That's Okay.
There is so much advice out there about what job seekers need to do to please every person they come across.
Understand that not every position or hiring manager or company is going to be the right fit for you…and that’s just fine.
Do what is in your control and just be your best professional self when interviewing. Be prepared, be engaging, and show interest in the company and the role.
If someone at a company doesn’t “like” what they see, then great! You would rather know that before starting at a new company than after a few months.
As a job seeker, you’re looking for one good fit, not 100. The right company will value you just as you are.
Let's share some positive thoughts!
It's hard to believe that #COVID has been affecting our daily life for SIX months now. It's easy to get caught up with negative thoughts and feelings of demotivation.
So today I'm asking you all to share a feel good story you've heard recently or a positive moment you've experienced!
I'll start... I recently read a story about a toddler who was OBSESSED with garbage trucks. He admires the men and women who drive them, and even has his own fleet of toy trucks himself! As a birthday surprise this year, four of his local trash collectors came riding through in their trucks, horns hoking and screaming words of celebration to celebrate his special day.
Share yours below!!
I stayed positive and motivated at my job by...my personality and enjoying the people who came into Friends by Design. Showing customers the new clothing .
#motivation I love the store and the line of clothing . I did not need motivated .
Monday morning musings -- how to get started with #backtoworkri
Good morning, Rhode Islanders!
Just wanted to give a Monday morning shout-out – my name is Jeanette and I’ve been with Jobcase for almost seven years. In that time, I’ve learned a lot about the different journeys people take in their work-life.
One of the most important things I’ve learned is that it’s hard to find work if your basic needs aren’t being met. For that reason, I want to make sure you know about the resources available to help you stay on your feet while you look for that next work opportunity. This link takes you to Jobcase’ Rhode Island unemployment resource page: https://www.jobcase.com/ru/unemployment-benefits-rhode-island. If you’re in a position right now where you need this type of help, it’s a good place to start.
It’s not the only resource, though. As part of this group, you can ask our Jobcase Community Experts and other Rhode Islanders what resources they know of or have used, now or in the past. It might be advice and encouragement if you’re having trouble navigating the unemployment claim process. It might be the hours and location of a local food bank. It might be how to contact your state representative: http://www.rilin.state.ri.us/representatives/default.aspx
In short, help yourself by helping yourself – portraying your confidence, skills, reliability, and professionalism to your next employer is easier when you and your family’s basic needs are taken care of. This Jobcase family is not just here to help you find that next job. We’re here to provide a platform where you can learn from the knowledge, successes, and even tribulations of others just like you. You got this! #wordsofadvice #motivation #backtoworkri
Work Flow: How to get into the zone
Have ever heard of the concept of Flow? It's the time when you're doing a project or work and your mental and physical movements are so synched that you've lost track of time and are just in the moment of getting shit done. When it happens work no longer feels like work, it feels as if you're just grooving with energy and purpose. I found this video where I think he's just flowing at his job. #motivation #video #advice #TTT
