Helps Next Job Hunt By Knowing Why You Got Let Go

Why did those fools let me go? The question haunts you after losing a job for unexplained reasons, which is the case in most dismissals. Finding out what’s behind the axing is like pulling a sword from the stone. Neither tears nor tantrums are likely to budge it from the employer.

How To Survive A New Job You’re Underqualified For

Every new job’s got a learning curve. If that curve proves steeper than a plunge from Mt. Everest, problems mount quickly. Small tasks don’t get done. Minor mistakes snowball into an avalanche of errors. Deadlines whoosh by unmet. Word spreads you can’t hack it. That you’re way over your head.

When Aiming For The Most Prestigious Employers

You’re the elite of the elite. A top prospect most employers slobber over. You’re not looking to plunk your tush just anywhere. Only at the tiny fraction of companies atop their industry’s pyramid. Emblazoning their name on your resume is the height of employment prestige. Friends will ooh and ahh. Waiters will seat you at the finest tables.

Jobs For People Who Crush On The Outdoors

Get out! For real. Leave artificial lighting and stale building air behind. Let office-bound colleagues turn pasty and soft indoors. You’re meant to earn a living outside. Communing with nature. Hugging trees (consensually). Soaking up sun or snow instead of longingly looking out windows.

Beating The Resume Screening Bots

Ways to get noticed, not nixed, by the latest recruiting AI. Busy be the bots that filter incoming resumes. More employers than ever scan your application electronically. Less so at small companies, but you never know who does and doesn’t. Which is why you’ve always got to satisfy AI. Since algorithms might be parsing your words almost instantly, feed ‘em the good stuff. Otherwise, you could stay invisible to hiring managers and recruiters.

Mastering Teamwork As A Loner

Even hermits sometimes have to work in groups, so deal with it. Loners are a breed apart. Literally. They gravitate to jobs for people who dislike - people. Teamwork seems like a toxic task.

How To Be A Ruthless (But Not Evil) Employee

If you’re hell-bent on winning at all costs, at least leave the innocent intact. Ruthless people litter pop culture. You can hardly stream a channel or mime a meme without cruel themes. And those mind-numbing reality shows? Competition-crushing opponents pitilessly – is the constant goal. Except, at work, brutal treachery can backfire. Violates a code of conduct or two. Paints perps as bright red targets.

How to spring clean your work wardrobe

After frigid temps and depressingly short days, it can feel like you just spent months hibernating in your office. And in reality, you probably did. Trudging through the snow on unbearable commutes. Dodging off-site meetings out of fear of bracing the cold. When it comes to working through the winter, the experience is daunting.
