It’s so easy to come down on yourself for not getting that job, that promotion or even that position you’ve been working towards.
They key is to stay positive. The world works in mysterious ways and things have a way of working out in the end.
I believe that everything happens for a reason. You May have not received an offer on a job you really wanted, because there is something else out there that is perfect for you. You may not have received that promotion or the position you wanted because there’s a better opportunity that will present itself.
July 20, 2020 A Day in my Shoes! My day started at 5:00 AM waking up and preparing for a busy schedule. 5:10 AM Coffee Made and check my messages to see if any surprises arise? First cup of coffee and shower time. Check my email to see where I am needed for the event. Call's to be made, pick up staff and make sure Essential Black Live Worker’s Event is going smoothly? Leave the house at 6:15 AM. Heading to pick up the first person my union organizer Lisa, she tells me she is running late. Skip her house and go to the second house. Arlene my Co-Delegate.6:40 AM arrived and she tells me Cathy can’t get the day off. I tell her not to worry and head to Marcus’s house. Arlene on the way tells me he isn’t answering the phone. I call still no answer. Guess we have to cover his spot? Arrive at his house to pick him up, it’s 7:05 AM. Lisa call’s asking where are we? I tell her on our way to her house. By the way it starts to pouring rain. #1199 #Work #Union #BLM #BlackLifeMatters
Be very careful of the new job scams. They set you up with an in depth interview, and get back to you within 15 min telling you that you have the job. They tell you that they are going to mail you a check for your start up bonus and for office supplies. They are usually a few thousand dollar checks and they claim you can keep 100 for your sign on bonus and the rest is used to purchase your new laptop and copier/printer/fax machine etc. They overnight you the check through fed ex usually and then tell you to deposit it into your bank account using the atm preferably. When it kept declining saying invalid for me they told me to use the teller. Thankfully I didn't fill out my w2 and I9 they sent me via email with my welcome letter. The company they were using fir me was Trinity Pharmaceuticals. They usually target hiring for work from home personal assistants or the biggest is administrative assistance or Customer service associates. I was so happy to have finally had a job I didn't even think about job scams what usually happens if your bank doesn't catch it they make the funds available immediately in good faith and then the company that's "hiring " (scamming) you will instruct you to buy certain equipment through their vendors they have deals with and by the time your bank realizes it's a fraud check you end up having to pay all that money back and the scammers are gone. I'm very careful with my information and scammers, but these people were good. The initial email came like all other emails from careerbuilders. I've already reported it to them and they have more information on fraud on their website as well. Be careful out there. #work from home #job scammers #scammers #fakejobs
