    • Should You Apply to the Same Company Multiple Times?

      Maybe this is your dream company to work for. Or perhaps they just offer several jobs matching your career interests. Whatever the reason, you’ve found yourself applying to the same company multiple times. But is this really a good idea? The answer may vary depending on your unique situation. Here are a few factors that might impact your decision. The Size of the Company If you’re applying to different jobs in a huge company with multiple departments that don’t really interact, there’s no issue with applying to multiple jobs. The team you’re applying with may not even know you applied for another job at the company. However, if you’re applying to a smaller company where everything goes through the HR department, applying multiple times might not be the best idea. There’s nothing wrong with waiting a while to apply again, but if you apply to every job a small company offers within a short window of time, you run the risk of overexposure.

    • Making an Impression Your First Day on the Job

      Interviews can be intimidating, but your first day on the job can sometimes seem even more daunting. You don’t know any of your co-workers and haven’t found out the details of your day-to-day responsibilities. But it’s vital to work through the nerves. Making a good first impression (to both your co-workers and your manager) is very important. Dollar Shave Club held a study of 2,000 people and observed that, upon meeting a person, 69% formed a first impression before the individual even spoke. In addition, hiring and training a new employee is expensive. Glassdoor discovered the average company spends approximately $4,000 to hire a new worker, while The 2017 Training Industry Report found that about $1,886 was spent to train each employee. You want to show your manager that they made the right choice. Here’s how. Prepare Introductions Since it’s your first day on the job, nobody is going to know who you are. You’re going to be answering the same questions over and over, so take some time beforehand …

    • Working with an Unempathetic Boss

      An unempathetic boss is one lacking in emotional intelligence. What’s emotional intelligence? As defined by Psychology Today, the term “refers to the ability to identify and manage one’s own emotions, as well as the emotions of others.” Essentially, an unempathetic boss doesn’t understand what other people are feeling. Not all unempathetic bosses are the same. Some are excited for their jobs but unable to realize their decisions are wildly unpopular, while others keep to a hands-off approach and expect employees to complete goals regardless of their home situation. In extreme circumstances, this can result in a boss who cares about employee performance over employee wellbeing. It can be difficult to work with a manager who doesn’t understand their employees, since they may be less than willing to allow employees time to spend with their families or understand how a death in the family or sick relative might affect employee work performance. This can result in a tense work atmosphere. However, there are a few things you can do to cope. …
