Do You Want the Job?

Job applicants fail in the interview process because they fail to close the deal. This is akin to a sales representative working hard on a sales pitch to an important client but then leaving without asking for the order.

Every applicant wants the job. To be successful, you must close the deal in a compelling way. You must sell yourself.

Unhappy With Job, Boss, Avoid These Behaviors

“You must always protect your brand/reputation. In our digital world, once you or someone else disses your reputation, it is hard to repair the damage regardless of the truth.”

When you are unhappy in your job – for whatever reason – here is a must-do while you are sorting out your next career move:  be a good employee.

Don’t be a complainer.

Don’t be a debater.

Don’t lob rotten eggs.

When you are unhappy with your boss or how the organization is treating you, these reactions may be temptations that are tough to avoid, but it is imperative you do.

You must always protect your brand/reputation. In our digital world, once you or someone else disses your reputation, it is hard to repair the damage regardless of the truth.

As the old saying goes, “A lie travels around the globe while the truth is putting on its shoes.”
