First you would want to make sure your dressed appropriate and nicely and then you want to make sure your own time and make sure to be very well respectful and be yourself and most of all be very honest about any questions and be very persistent and determined to be a very good hard worker

I hope everyone had a nice and peaceful New Year. It’s the official end of the holiday season. I still feel a little slow even though it's already Wednesday. So of course I went to my default–WebMD to look for advice on coping with post holiday blues 😆. I actually really like these ideas on setting big audacious goals BAG:

I’m already looking for a new online class that I can take this year. What would be your BAG in 2022?

After a year as the Quality Manager, (firing of the General Manager who promoted me to that position), and 5 months with the new General Manager, I was called in to the new General Manager’s office. He said my performance was not what he wanted; he slid a Performance Improvement Plan in front of me, to sign. I knew this was really a termination notice, with a 3 month notice. I signed it and immediately called a talent recruiter.

The recruiter informed me that my boss had already contacted her, looking for a candidate for my job. (She asked me if I was interested in a Quality Manager job with my company, 3 days old!) But, a candidate had already been interviewed!

I found another job that paid $15,000/yr better. I quit that job as soon as I got the new job offer, with no notice.

Since then, that company has been through 4 quality managers. They fired the guy who fired me. Based on recommendations of current co-workers, that company called me with an offer of hire.

Should I consider their job offer? (They are willing to make it worth my while.)

Hello everyone, my name is Valerie and I have been out of work for like 10 months now. I am very eager to get back into the work force. My career lies in Human Resource Management and working from home is something that I would love to explore. Or maybe something else into a whole other field, who knows. #workfromhome

As we are transitioning to a new calendar year, there might be changes happening at your workplace. It could be new coworkers, new boss, new software systems or new company policies etc. How do you usually cope with these changes?

Here are some tips:

  • 🤔Keep an open mind: we usually prefer to stay where we were if it was working for us. So there might be some resistance for any new changes. Try to keep an open mind and challenge yourself to step out of your comfort zone when embracing the changes.
  • Ask lots of questions: communications are so important when it comes to changes. Make sure to be very honest and ask lots of questions about the roles, directions, potential impact to get yourself prepared for the situation.
  • 📝Repetition is key: if you are the change maker, don’t be afraid to repeat all the new changes. There is no over communications on these changes. So make sure to create all kinds of reminders and reinforcements to make sure people feel ready for the change.
  • ❤️Give yourself some space and time: give yourself some time and space and admit that it can be hard to keep up with the changes. Don’t be too harsh on yourself to jump to the new reality too soon. Take it easy!

What changes are you seeing at your company this year? Was it easy for you to adjust? How did you cope with the change?

Hi, I have been looking for writing jobs(Content/copywriting) all over but haven't got any. They keep asking for references and I clearly have 0. What can I do? Any place you can recommend to me where they need entry-level writers? How do you get jobs when you have little experience but you've got some good published work?

I have worked for a nursing home facility since January of 2016 and was recently fired because I got 3 write up's for being late 3 weeks before I was fired the bosses daughter would constantly rant over how she wished she could work my position which was one 8 hour shift and 2 shifts that where 16 hours making my 40 hour work week in 3 days which meant I was off 4 day's a week and I loved it never had any complaints from patient care or any other errors on my part. I recently worked our COVID-19 unit and the second wave of COVID-19 took out a bunch of our residents I started depression medication and anxiety and sleeping aids to help with what I was going through mentally from what I was recently encountering on the job from my psychiatrist the adverse reactions of these meds where sleeping heavily there for causing me to wake up late at times because I only took my insomnia medication and sleep aid as needed and depression medication you can't just take as needed the it's constant to work effectively, my job then complained about me being different because the depression medication effect everyone differently which I can't help to each their own. So after me 3rd write up for being late over a 6 year period and med change I was fired the 3rd write mind you I have never been in any serious trouble at work as a nurse I know my role and what needs to be done. I filed unemployment because after the second write up I was told since the sleeping meds and anxiety meds where causing me to overly sleep they would change my shift to evening shift so it would better occomidate me and my needs because I was open and honest with them about it ALL so they where VERY aware well guess what instead of changing my shift like was discussed by management they fires me instead of a suspension and shift change like I previously stated I've never been in trouble and can't understand why they would just fire me instead of helping a loyal employee and single parent through a rough patch they where aware of. So I filed unemployment with my psych doctors notes and a list of medication and diagnosis unemployment told me that they basically can not fore me for that because it's firing .e for a medical condition. So when I got my depiction back unemployment approved and the company approved it after unemployment stated I had prior documentation and they where wrong 3 days later I get a updated decision from unemployment saying the company that writes the checks and handles finances for the facility is denying my unemployment, so I'm appealing it and found out from coworkers still employed there that her daughter who wanted my shifts now has them what a suppose right? So basically what I'm asking is am I right? Has this happend to anyone else? After 6 years of dedicated work and evacuating for hurricanes with the facility the facility to help and wading through knee high water for one particularly hurricane woth no electricity and a generator to take care of these people, I got thank you for 6 years of service and help or nothing. So now here I am waiting to hear what unemployment says anyone's thought or experience with a situation like this? #healthcare #coronavirus #stressful #drama #advice #texas #canyourelate #aboutmyjob #termination

I have said this countless times, but it bears repeating: the bar association in every state maintains a list of attorneys that do pro-bono work. It sounds like you have a decent case. I would reach out to them. It also sounds like you would be covered by the ADA, so you might consider firing off an email to them. It is easy to be discouraged, so find support with advocacy groups or in various forums. Good luck
