Interviewed for a sales job and the HR person said they would “definitely get in touch." After 2 weeks, would you reach out or wait?
My wife has been at her current job for 6 months but is fed up. She’s applied to a few places but this one in particular seems ideal. Good commute, great benefits including part time work from home, and would double her pay!

Ever since I first started working, I was always a little nervous about annual reviews. Not because I thought I was doing the wrong things, like getting to work late every day or doing a poor job overall, but because having your boss to improve, did not always feel great. For some reason, especially earlier in my career, I had been conditioned to have a fight or flight response to criticism, I know I am not the only one to feel this way. But not all criticism is bad.

No matter if you are just starting a new job, or you’ve been at a job for a while, or you’re still in the middle of job search, it’s important to keep benefits into consideration to assess the values of the jobs.
Not all employees in the same company would qualify for the benefits. Make sure to check the minimum hours requirement and the type of employment for the benefit eligibility.

Also, keep in mind that smaller companies with fewer than 20 employees might not fall under these requirements.
