How to Deal with a Verbally Abusive Employer/ Boss

A few days ago, I had a conversation with a blog reader and she wanted me to discuss this topic. It’s quite interesting and somewhat troubling how some workplaces are structured. This goes down to the workplace culture which may take a while to change if the culture has eaten in too deep.

If you are still young and there were loads of jobs to go for, you’d most likely quit your job and hop to the next. But when there are no jobs available, or you are just way too deep to start afresh, quitting your job may not be the best alternative in this case.

7 Tips to Get your Dream Job as an Immigrant

One of the biggest decisions I have ever had to make was pack up my bags and decide to relocate to Canada. I don’t want to think that many people relocate to a new country without making concrete plans on how to survive in the new environment.

It’s so much of a serious decision, but I think that many people don’t know the proper ways to go about delicate things or what to expect. Also, they probably become frustrated at some point because everything seems different and not everyone has a great coping mechanism.
