We want so much, but what are we actually giving? So many beg for the job, only to show up to work late and with a poor and tacky attitude. Why do others have to deal with you and your mess and messiness?
Let's check ourselves before we wreck ourselves. Some of us aren't working right now because we suck and we lack #workplace #gratitude. Let's just be real. #jobsearch #wordsofadvice #advice #motivation #interview
Go after your purpose and you will find what you're looking for.
Diversity in the workplace
Diversity encompasses the range of similarities and differences each individual brings to the workplace, including but not limited to national origin, language, race, color, disability, ethnicity, gender, age, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, socioeconomic status, veteran status, and family structures.
I feel that a lot of companies are getting better at hiring different ethnic groups 👩🏽🦰👱🏾👩🏽🦳👩🧔🏿♂️👴🏻👨🏼🦱🧔🏼♀️ Inclusion is something that companies are focusing on, encouraging employees to unite which is awesome 🤩
Where I work, we have 7 days of being the after-hours on-call staff. we are on-call every 7th week. I LOATHE my turn on the rotation. It stresses me out, we have to put our lives on hold for 7 days so we can be near a computer at all times in the event a call comes in.
Additionally, if we have to pull in an additional resource, like a developer for example, it takes a herculean effort to get ahold of someone.
Calls come in all hours of the night/early morning. Then you have to be up and ready for your regular shift the next day.
There is no differential pay for this either as we are salaried.
If ever I decide to look for a new job, I am going to ensure it does not have on-call hours as a requirement.
Why not? Hair clean and combed, clothes clean and pressed, body clean with no disturbing odors, teeth brushed, shoes cleaned, black straight, head high, handshake firm.... smile glowing.... why not?
When you look good, you feel good. When you look good, feel good, and smell good you represent yourself as a high-quality professional who is also approachable.
This means, more opportunities to grow and thrive in your career. :) Woot woot!

The challenges in working is first you must like what you're doing. Always do good work at your best, be on time. Finish what you start.
Around this time of year, many managers present their employees with formal annual reviews.
For many, these meetings can make employees nervous, but, when done properly and professionally, these reviews should be non-events.
Good managers will communicate with their employees THROUGHOUT the year; giving constructive feedback so employees can grow and progress in the organization and in their own careers.
Therefore, when the annual review comes around, it should simply be a documentation of the main points discussed during the last year. That’s it.
Not-so-great managers won’t actively manage their employees and will potentially use the annual review to sabotage and/or hold employees back from a promotion or a raise by first giving negative feedback during this time.
Use your annual review to gauge how you feel about your current company.
If you find yourself surprised (in a bad way) during your annual review, take it as a clear sign that your current company may no longer deserve your efforts in 2021.
Alternatively, an easy, fair review with no surprises is a good indicator of a strong manager and a positive work environment.
