I've seen many complaints stating that remote work or "work at home" or Jobcase jobs are a scam. ALL of these jobs are NOT scams. However, you need to be more diligent. You need to do your research. You need to look up these companies. If the company does not have a REAL and LEGIT website that you can go to and look through (it's quite possible that the job is not real). If the company does not have real, working phone numbers that you can call and talk to real people (in a professional environment------not someone's personal cell phone number). Are the e-mails real (companies generally do not give you a personal email account---or yahoo or gmail--- for contact info)? Is this a real company with a legit website, call and email those professional numbers from the website. Is this a company where I can find more information about online. If not, it may not be legit. Trust your instincts when you are online and take some time to really delve into a company before applying especially if it is a company you have never heard of....

Also, many scammers use the name of real companies to lure you in. You can contact these companies directly and ask them if they are hiring or tell them about the post that you saw. Do not use the contact information in the ad, use the contact information you find online for that company. Note individuals who work for that company in HR and call or email them. Become serious about your job search and be careful while online.

Have you given careful thought about working from home? Yes, I know, everyone's doing it. The pandemic forced a huge part of the workforce to work from home but have you ever considered doing it or what it might take?

Here are a few helpful hints to help you get started:

  1. You will need a dedicated workspace or area. It can mean simply setting up a work desk or dedicating an extra room as an office.

  2. It would also be helpful to set up scheduled work hours. This can help you manage your time and your day. You can easily fall into the habit of working anytime and all the time. I recommend using a schedule and timers to keep you on track (and also to help you remember to take breaks---it's easy to get caught up in bad habits when working from home).

Please feel free to add any beginner steps for those who want to start working from home in the comments.

Did You Already Have Your Annual Job Review?

I was told last week that we will be having an annual job review for everyone before the end of the year. It made me reflect on all my past supervisors and managers. When my managers were good, their constructive criticism did help me become a better worker. I am truly grateful for the insights they provided. When they were not good managers, it was painful to sit through a review when I just wanted to tell them none of these are my issues. You created this mess. But of course, you can’t and so you nod and smile and say you’ll work on them.

I once had a boss give me a review and at the end ask me if there was some feedback I would like to give her. Right when I was about to talk, she stopped me and said, “Don’t, I don’t want to hear it.” I just laughed it off because I could sense she was very uncomfortable about what I was about to say.

What has been your experience during a review? Do you look forward to them? What was the craziest thing that was said to you.

I just had an epiphany , I'm a single parent who relies on my kids school schedule in order to go to work. Out of the past 2 school years my kid actually went to school for maybe 6 months , 9 max. Now teachers unions want to take "mental breaks" ironically the same reason they (the unions) wanted to get the kids back into school was for the child's mental well being , now they're playing the same card to keep kids home. Here's my idea and the way I see it , its a win win win , I get a paycheck , teachers union gets their wish , and my kid gets a stable education . plus I get a tax break , considering my state taxes pay for education...well , really no point in paying those wages any more , no point in passing "school levies" . I'll be happy to teach my kid , garunteed she'll advance to the next grade because of earned merit and not a "participation trophy education". A small disclaimer...in case teachers on here or friends of teachers...thank your union reps and congressman for provoking this train of thought. #education #jobsearch #workathome
