Considering Relocation?

2022-05-18T15:26:19-04:00Categories: General News, Pandemic|Tags: , , , , , , , , |0 Comments

We can all vividly remember surrendering our in-office work life as the pandemic surged, though I bet none of us thought remote work would become a new reality. Over 50% of companies are now fully remote and that has prompted the relocation of their employees as a daily office visit is no longer necessary. Major cities like New York and Los Angeles registered their lowest annual growth in a decade. However, some employees found themselves in a pickle when their employer decided that they would return to in-office work, and they are no longer located within a reasonable commute. If [...]

Why You Shouldn’t No Call No Show

2022-05-13T11:03:50-04:00Categories: Acing the Interview, Behind the Scenes, General News|Tags: , , , , , , |0 Comments

Honestly one of the worst things you can do in your work life is a “No Call, No Show (NCNS).” This could apply to an interview, a phone call, or a scheduled shift, and it essentially means that you do not show up without notice or a reason given. This is not a good habit to get into so if you have found yourself committing this act, stop. It’s a slippery slope and like we’ve said before you never know where life will take you. You may think simply not showing up to the interview is no big deal and [...]

Are You Chronically Late?

2022-07-12T08:59:20-04:00Categories: General Job Search Advice, General News, Job Efficiency, Networking|Tags: , , , , , , |0 Comments

Being “fashionably late” is an excuse that people who are always late give to make themselves feel better, and it isn’t acceptable to your employer. Unfortunately snoozing your alarm 3 or 4 times and rushing out the door is an easy habit to adopt and a very hard one to break. We, humans, are creatures of habit, and we tend to lean toward the solution that gives us the most satisfaction at the moment even if it means difficulty later. It’s easy to think that extra 5-10 minutes will actually make a difference in the ease of getting out of [...]

Do You Understand Your Paycheck?

2022-05-13T10:38:33-04:00Categories: Resources for Job Seekers|Tags: , , , , , |0 Comments

In a day where the price of basic necessities like gas and groceries are through the roof, you may find yourself more reliant on your paycheck than ever before. According to a recent report over 50% of the population now lives paycheck to paycheck due to inflation. The question is, do you know how much you’re bringing in? In this case, we’re not referring to your budget, we’re actually asking if you know the amount that will be deposited into your account from the hours you worked the previous week (or week’s if you are paid bi-weekly). You should be [...]

Are You Prepared?

2022-05-13T10:26:47-04:00Categories: Behind the Scenes, General Job Search Advice, How To, Motivation|Tags: , , , , , |0 Comments

The word “prepared” is defined as – making ready beforehand for some purpose, use, or activity. Being prepared is necessary for almost all tasks related to your job (and life). The act of being prepared is something that should be continuously practiced and put forth in every given situation. I’m not just talking about coming prepared with a pen or pencil. Being prepared goes as far as when you task someone with something and preparing them the best you can to get the task done. If you’re thinking back to that email you sent to Jim this morning with unclear [...]

How Do You Learn Best?

2022-05-13T10:17:31-04:00Categories: Behind the Scenes, Job Efficiency, Motivation|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , |0 Comments

How do you learn best? If you don’t know, you should find out and perfect it. You may be hands-on, needing to perform a task with your own hands to understand how and why you’re doing it. You may be a diligent note-taker because writing it down helps it to stick into your brain so you can repeat it later. You may be visual and need to watch someone perform the task at which point you can likely repeat it down to every detail. So, which of these are you? Or in what combination? Scientists claim that on any given [...]

Let’s be honest, sometimes we employees don’t make it easy on our employers. With increasing employee demands, employers are frantic to find a solution that will keep the company profitable and the employees happy. So, we ask, how far are you willing to go to make your employees happy? Regardless of what is “right” or “wrong”, the divide between employee and employer needs to be addressed. What requests being made by employees are feasible, and which ones are completely out of the park? This decision needs to be addressed per company, considering company values and structure. […]

Is Your Productivity Lacking?

2022-05-09T14:41:48-04:00Categories: Behind the Scenes, Job Efficiency, Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , , |0 Comments

If you feel like your productivity has been slowly dwindling, you may not be alone. The COVID-19 pandemic caused a 4.5% increase in productivity, including 2.6% in the US which Is the largest recorded increase since the 1970s. One of the few silver linings brought on by a seemingly endless year. Unfortunately for us, what goes up, must come down. Productivity flatlined in 2021 and is projected to actually revert by 0.2% in 2022. The question is, why? Is it due to increased hours of work as the economy reopens? Perhaps due to the effects of The Great Resignation? Or [...]

What’s Your Morning Routine?

How do you start your morning? Whether you are doing it intentionally or not I’ll bet you have a routine that you practice daily. Studies have shown that 88% of people carry out a morning routine, and among them, over 90% were more productive because of it. So, think back to this morning, did you wake up before your family to enjoy a cup of coffee peacefully? Did you get in a good sweat session? Play with your fur babies? It is human nature to adapt to a routine that will leave you feeling satisfied and prepared to start your [...]
